NEW YORK - Americans' outlook on the economy went into relapse in February. Rising job worries sent a key barometer of confidence to its lowest point in 10 months. The Conference Board said Tuesday its Consumer Confidence Index fell almost 11 points to 46 in February, from January. Analysts were expecting only a slight decrease to 55. It was the lowest level since a 40.8 reading in April 2009. A reading above 90 means the economy is on solid footing. - Associated Press

Several U.S. senators have proposed stripping the NFL of its tax-exempt status — a warning analysts say the image-damaged league can't afford to ignore even if the threat proves hollow. Just as it did during Major League Baseball's steroid scandal nearly a decade ago, Congress is using its bully pulpit — and threatening legislation — to prod change on another of the nation's pastimes.

Grizzlies are toast Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel One of the teams in this series is finished, and it's not the Spurs. The Grizzlies had their chance to close out one of the league's top franchises in recent history and failed. The Spurs will win the next two games and probably cruise in the following round because of this second chance. Big shots such as Gary Neal's 3-pointer at the end of the regulation have changed playoff series before. Just ask the 2002 Kings.

Shaq & Kobe & Timmy ... as the tagline for "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice" went, imagine the possibilities. It only seems as if Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Shaquille O'Neal, the Lakers, the Spurs and whichever team Shaq is with have been duking it out forever. It's actually 11 years, since the spring of 1999, when the Spurs won the first of their four titles, after which the Lakers won the first, second and third of their four titles in the decade ... with the grand showdown yet to come?

The land along the northern edge of the Patapsco serves as the front porch to a bejeweled coastline, the product of a re-making of Baltimore's Inner Harbor in a manner and to a degree that could have hardly been imagined a generation ago. And then, several blocks north, in the once commercially vibrant area of Waverly, standing in considerable contrast, there is McKenzie Elliott's front porch. When a three-year-old is shot to death while merely indulging in the act of sitting on her own front porch on a summer afternoon, the magnificence and grandeur of the renewal of our city is dimmed and diminished.

Martin O'Malley, the $75 million project has been stymied after prospective sites and a potential partnership fell through. Now state officials are weighing giving Green Planet Power Solutions, the California-based company chosen to build the 13.4-megawatt plant, a nearly $35 million subsidy on top of what the state previously agreed to pay for its power.
