A Baltimore teen-ager accused of rifling through the pockets of robbery victims last year in Columbia while his cousin allegedly shot and killed a 23-year-old computer student pleaded guilty yesterday to first-degree murder and a handgun charge. In return for Jonas L. Askins' guilty plea, prosecutors said they would not seek a life term, but would instead ask Howard Circuit Judge James B. Dudley to suspend all but 50 years in prison - plus five years for the gun charge - at his sentencing July 24. The plea, entered at what was supposed to be the start of a weeklong jury trial, ensured prosecutors of a conviction while giving Askins, who bowed his head through much of the hearing, hope that he might someday be a free man. "No one's happy with this ... but we felt this was the best thing," said Patricia L. Chappell, Askins' public defender.

As a parent of a child suffering for 14 years from a devastating severe mental illness - one that includes zero awareness and utter denial that the illness exists - I am bewildered why Maryland has failed to create an assisted outpatient treatment (community based) program ( "Close the mental health revolving door," Dec. 29). The pendulum has swung so sharply so as to protect personal rights that we have failed to help those who need it the most. Should we not require persons be given the vaccinations that are part of life's medical treatment protocol?

Christmas Eve worshipers at Columbia's Village of Oakland Mills on Tuesday will do the interfaith shuffle: Catholics departing the sanctuary with their hymnals, white altar cloth, candles and crucifix; Protestants entering with their own hymnals, white cloth, candles and cross. Then Protestants out, Catholics back in. So the ritual dance swings on, decades after people of many faiths first gathered to worship under one roof at the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center and similar spots in other Columbia villages.

During the last decade, the percentage of people released from Maryland's prisons who re-offend within three years has dropped by more than 11 points - and by 3 points in just the last year. Considering the cost to society of the revolving door prison has become for too many in this country, that's a laudable achievement. Yet the fact that more than two in five who are released from prison will still get arrested or violate parole within three years shows just how much more progress remains to be made.

The colt was a knucklehead, really. He had speed and endurance in his pedigree, but if you had polled his owners and his trainer a year ago, none would have predicted that he'd gallop in the same steps as his great-grandsire, 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. When the gates dropped on his first race, Orb did not even break. Second race? Same thing. He did not win until the fourth and final race of his two-year-old campaign. But where other colts might level off or become erratic, Orb seemed to get better every day. “I've never seen anything like it,” said his trainer, Claude “Shug” McGaughey, who has been in the thoroughbred game more than 40 years.

Right now Rick Abbruzzese works at a desk a few feet from Gov. Martin O'Malley's office in the State House. In two weeks, he'll report a few blocks away to the Annapolis law firm Rifkin, Livingston, Levitan and Silver LLC, where he will likely lobby his soon-to-be former boss. Ditto for Joseph C. Bryce, a State House staffer for nearly two decades and O'Malley's influential chief legislative officer for the past six years. Last month he announced his departure and has moved into a new office at Manis, Canning and Associates where he'll cajole, pressure and maneuver on behalf of corporate clients.

In size-72 font was the billboard for monosyllabic lead guitarist Slash, followed by a colorful size-48 font promo for his current lead singer-collaborator, Myles Kennedy. Below Kennedy's name, in 12-point font was the name of their touring rhythm section, the Conspirators.  For their part, the Conspirators were a capable and enthusiastic group, tearing through a 19-song set that showcased Slash's solo material and his work withGuns N' Rosesand Velvet Revolver equally.
