How interesting to read that Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's challengers are actually seeking advice from Sheila Dixon, a disgraced mayor who was charged with perjury, theft, fraudulent misappropriation and misconduct, and ultimately convicted of embezzlement ("Dixon at work behind the scenes," July 13). The Sun deserves thanks for making the next Baltimore mayoral election a no-brainer. Katherine Ambrose, Kingsville

Reality TV makes strange bedfellows - especially on a tattoo competition show. Don Peddicord, 30, co-owner of Tattoo Dynasty in Joppa, met New York-based tattoo artist Erik Suida during a casting call for Season 2 of the Spike tat competition show, "Ink Master. " "We actually waited in line together for about six hours and he just kind of rubbed me the wrong way from the beginning," Peddicord said. "I just never really cared for his attitude about things. " But after several years of social media "bashing," Suida called on Peddicord to be his rival for the show's fifth season, "Ink Master Rivals," now airing at 10 p.m. Tuesdays.

The Ravens came into the 2012 NFL draft looking to round out their roster and add depth and create competition at several positions. They appear to have addressed all of their immediate needs, even if they made a few interesting selections Saturday. Linebacker Courtney Upshaw may end up being a steal and Kelechi Osemele and Gino Gradkowski bring athleticism and versatility to the offensive line. Many draft analysts gave the Ravens solid marks for the draft (and they have also given them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the selection of three FCS prospects on draft's final day)

In Sunday's Ravens high school Quarterback Challenge, Howard's Kevin Sheahin teamed up with receiver Keenan Fisher to best Howard County rival River Hill at halftime of the Ravens-Panthers game at M&T Bank Stadium. Sheahin and Fisher connected on a 40-yard pass for the winning combination as the longest of the afternoon. River Hill quarterback Noah Thyberg hit Jon Kanda with a 35-yard pass to open the competition, but Sheahin and Fisher then connected for 40 yards. The Hawks had another shot and Thyberg also completed his second pass, to Chuck McLaughlin, but at 36 yards it wasn't long enough to beat the Lions.

A mailer by  a Republican candidate for the nomination to run against Democratic U.S. Rep. C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger in the 2nd District gives a lesson in how to finesse the issue when a rival picks off the most desirable endorsements from party luminaries. Del. Richard Impallaria, a Republican who represents Baltimore and Harford counties, sent a mailer to GOP voters touting himself as "a true conservative.

"Gran, I am out to win," Michael Phelps once told his grandmother over a game of rummy. "Whether it's you or anybody else." The opponent doesn't actually matter. Sometimes it's Grandma. Sometimes it's a best friend one lane over in the practice pool. This time, it happened to be Ryan Lochte (above right) in the 200-meter individual medley. Phelps picked up his sixth gold medal and his sixth world record in the race. You could tear several pages off a wall calendar from the time Phelps completes a race to when the rest of the field reaches the wall.

Pittsburgh Steelers PLAXICO BURRESS, WR To ensure NFL defenses don't figure out his game, wide receiver Plaxico Burress used the preseason for modifications. For Burress, the focus shifted from running and jumping to reading and cutting. "Teams are not going to let me run down the field and jump up and make plays all day long," Burress told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I want to become a complete receiver. I don't think there's a lot out there that I can't run. If I got to go in and take a 5-yard slant and take it 20 yards, that's what I'm going to do."

As Baltimore's mayor on Wednesday consoled the family of a hospital worker used as a human shield during a gang shooting downtown, elected officials and community activists called on the city to do more to combat gang violence. The killing of Brandon Finney, a 25-year-old Maryland Shock Trauma Center technician, has rattled the city. He was waiting to catch a bus home after working a night shift Sunday when, police say, members of the Black Guerrilla Family targeted a rival Bloods member, who pulled Finney in front of him. Both died.

Emotional about Ray Rice's release and still stinging from a season-opening defeat, the Ravens play AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in two days. The quick turnaround looms for the Ravens following a disappointing game Sunday in which they lost, 23-16, to the Cincinnati Bengals. The potential of falling into an 0-2 hole in the division makes the Steelers game a pivitol one for a team that just dismissed one of its top players. "It was a tough loss," veteran defensive end Chris Canty said.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan told residents of a retirement community Tuesday night that he wants to eliminate all state income taxes on pensions before the end of his administration. Hogan unveiled the proposal in response to a question from a resident, one of about 500 people who attended a gubernatorial forum at Charlestown in Baltimore County, where the GOP nominee and Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown spoke. Both men struck familiar themes for most of the evening until Hogan told the seniors that after he cut spending and got the economy under control, his priority would be to slash the taxes they pay. His promise earned him the loudest applause of the night for either candidate.

It was Kariya leading his Canadian team to the gold-medal showdown against the Swedish team led by Forsberg.And it all came down to a shootout. Forsberg scored what turned out to be the winning goal, when Kariya's final shot was stopped by goalie Tommy Salo.Now, Forsberg is a rookie with the Eastern Conference-leading Quebec Nordiques and Kariya is a forward with the expansion Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the Western Conference, and they again find themselves in a shootout of sorts, this time for the NHL rookie scoring title.

The Cincinnati Bengals won the AFC North last season by sweeping the season series with each of their division opponents — despite going 4-6 outside the division. How much revamping will it take for the Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns to catch the Bengals? The Ravens already have narrowed the gap by trading for wide receiver Anquan Boldin. The Steelers, on the other hand, have taken one giant step backward by jettisoning Santonio Holmes and watching Ben Roethlisberger drag himself and the team through a sex scandal.

An $8.5 billion merger creating North America's biggest dollar store chain could mean increased competition for mass discounters such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. but less choice for shoppers. In the Baltimore area and elsewhere, retail experts said, Dollar Tree Inc.'s planned purchase of Family Dollar Stores Inc., announced Monday, likely will lead to some store closings, though the companies have not identified any locations. Dollar Tree, which runs mostly suburban stores and sells a mix of consumables as well as items such as gifts, party goods and greeting cards for $1 or less, has about 55 stores in the Baltimore area.
