Trends ride in like waves, then disappear. During the '80s, Southwestern design was a fad that took the form of hokey coyotes in pastel colors, and baskets made in Taiwan. Today, Southwestern style is calmer, more honest. Colors are not merely pastel, but have traditional significance, such as the Santa Fe blue taken from Indian religious rituals. Just as primitive design and symbolism play against the light of the Southwest, the deep shadows and amber sunlight of late afternoon play against the brilliant hues of Southwestern artisans.

One popular theory of lawyer Marilyn Mosby's upset win over incumbent State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein was that race played a deciding role in the election, helping a political newcomer oust a white prosecutor in a majority-black city. But Baltimore residents voted less along racial lines than they did four years ago when Bernstein knocked off veteran top city prosecutor Patricia Jessamy with overwhelming support in white neighborhoods, a Baltimore Sun analysis shows. An analysis of census data and precinct-by-precinct election results shows that Bernstein's support eroded in South, Southeast and North Baltimore - which contain the heavy-voting, majority-white neighborhoods of Federal Hill, Canton and Roland Park, respectively.

John Latvanas figured it was a fluke when he found the first Baltimore City parking ticket on his truck in mid-December. He and his son, Jason, who run a pallet-recycling business, had been parking overnight on Southwestern Boulevard for nearly 15 years and never had a problem. When they got a second ticket three weeks later, they started parking a quarter-mile down the road, an area they thought was over the Baltimore County line and out of reach of city enforcement. But the city parking tickets didn't cease.

When was the last time Western and Walbrook did not stand alone atop the City-Wide girls basketball league's division standings?Never.This year, however, Poly (5-0, 8-3) is undefeated in Division I along with Western (4-0, 10-0), and Southwestern (5-0, 5-0) is unbeaten in Division II, with two more league victories than Walbrook (3-0, 5-2).It's remarkable that Poly and Southwestern have been able to stay with the two perennial powers so far. The dominance of Western and Walbrook is easily documented.

When Fred Kaiss did not get the head coaching job at newly opened North County this season, he was about to leave the state in pursuit of his coaching goals.Members of Southwestern's football team probably are glad he stayed.Kaiss, an assistant coach last year at Andover and four years at Brooklyn Park before the two schools merged to form North County, became Southwestern's third coach in as many years this season.

Southwestern junior Taylor Holmes remembered on Saturday how she and her Sabres teammates felt that no one in the city gave them a chance early in the season to make it to the Baltimore City Division II championship. With only four players back, a new coach and eight transfers, the Sabres had a lot to overcome, but they slowly silenced their critics. A win over Carver just before Christmas break gave the Sabres confidence and showed them, and their opponents, that they could contend for the title.

Terrance Gough bought a king-size mattress, unpacked his clothes and arranged the bedroom in his uncle's Southwest Baltimore home just the way he liked it. The 26-year-old never got a chance to sleep in the bed, however: he was gunned down the next afternoon at an intersection around the corner, one of 11 people added to the city's growing list of homicide victims over the past nine days.

John Lloyd Bergbower, a Johns Hopkins Medicine security vice president who as a city police commander battled drug buyers in Southwest Baltimore, suffered a fall at his North Baltimore home Sunday and died later that day at Sinai Hospital. He was 60. "He didn't need to run into a burning building or take on an armed gunman to know that John Bergbower was a courageous man," said Police Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III, who served under him in the Southwestern District nearly 15 years ago. "He was a very smart, capable person with an air of confidence about him that made an impression on a young sergeant like myself.

Jareene Barkdoll of Baltimore was hoping we would be able to find the recipe for the Southwestern-style quiche served at the Severn Inn in Annapolis. A friend treated her to Sunday brunch at the inn for her birthday, and she so enjoyed the quiche that she wanted to re-create it at home. She said it was served with an avocado salsa and topped with black beans. Philip Sokolowski, executive chef at the Severn Inn, was kind enough to share his recipe for the quiche. What makes this quiche unusual, aside from the Southwestern seasoning, is that the typical pastry crust is replaced with tortillas.
