The helmet looks much the way it did when Morris Hunt wore it into a burning building on Leadenhall Street in the summer of 1965. He managed to get out, but he didn't survive. His daughter, Drue Jenkins, came to the Baltimore Fire Museum in the old station of Engine 6 on Gay Street, lifted the helmet off a shelf and put it on her head. She was just 2 years old when her father died, she said, and the helmet is "all I have left of him. " On Saturday, Jenkins and others came to the museum for Old-Timers Day, not just to reminisce about the station built in 1853 — it still has a hayloft from the days of horse-drawn engines — but to worry that the exhibition was the last.

Bounding onto the small stage at Georgetown's Blues Alley, lanky Jason Robert Brown takes command of the piano and whoops out the lyrics, "I started smiling./It's not my style," with the gusto of a rock musician - which he is. A fortnight later, over the phone from his home in Los Angeles, Brown discusses musical theater with the insights of an insider - which he also is. A 1999 Tony Award winner for the score of Parade, Brown recently released his first solo album, Wearing Someone Else's Clothes, and is currently touring with his band, the Caucasian Rhythm Kings.

Khandaker Shajahan had just closed up his father's pizza shop on Frederick Avenue shortly after midnight yesterday and was sitting in his car when the attack began. A man opened his door and pistol-whipped him. The robber then took the $360 in his pockets and then fled into the night in Southwest Baltimore. But police officers were nearby - including a recently promoted deputy major, Anthony Brown, and Sgt. Robert Brown - who, with the help of witnesses, were able to chase down the robber, authorities said.

The Baltimore man facing extradition to Germany in the killing of a nursing student more than 23 years ago did not fight for his release from jail at a federal detention hearing yesterday but proclaimed his innocence. Robert L. Brown Jr., who authorities said has been linked to the killing by DNA evidence, instead opted, through his lawyer in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, to direct his energies at mounting a vigorous defense against being sent back to Germany. He remains in federal custody.

MARPINGEN, Germany -- The snapshots show a family across an ocean in a foreign city called Baltimore. There is Denise Brown, thin and pretty with her dark hair pulled back, alongside her father, Robert L. Brown Jr. There is Denise's aunt, cheek to smiling cheek with her uncle. There is a gaggle of cousins, and her grandmother, in a silly purple wig. It was about a half-dozen years ago when Denise Brown, now 25, last saw her American father, a man who was in and out - but mostly out - of her life since childhood.
