The International Longshoremen's Association is investigating the largest dockworker union at the port of Baltimore over racially tinged allegations that local leaders stacked its membership in advance of coming local elections. Two members of the ILA executive council convened meetings in Baltimore this week to investigate the grievances filed by members of Baltimore's Local 333, confirmed Jim McNamara, a national ILA spokesman. The hearings occurred as two senior ILA officials, including Atlantic Coast District President Dennis Daggett, met in Baltimore this week with representatives of the Steamship Trade Association of Baltimore and the United States Maritime Association, or USMX, to continue local contract negotiations for Local 333. The two associations represent port shippers that employ ILA labor.

Once again, rage in the streets has captured the nation's attention, as it did during the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights revolution of the 1960s. Now it is the turn of the tea party and Occupy Wall Street movements. But the latter two have not achieved the numbers, the intensity or the success of first two. The outpouring of millions of demonstrators against the U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia that cost 55,000 American lives eventually led to a pullback and the first major military defeat in the nation's history.

If the new Fox drama “Gracepoint” looks too good to be on network TV, that's because it's stacked with the kind of talent you normally see only on cable. And the work here is so good it could help change the way networks do drama in the future. Starring in the series about life in a small Northern California coastal community after the murder of a 12-year-old boy are David Tennant (“Broadchurch”) and recent Emmy winner Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”). Gunn is outstanding as a police detective who has lived in the town her whole life, but only now starts to plumb the depths of lies, secrets and evil beneath the surface.

Q: We want to convert a large and little-used family room int a multipurpose space for our three children, ages 8 to 15. The room will probably be used at different times for different activities. It needs to include storage for toys, games and stereo equipment. Do you have some suggestions for how to carry out this conversion on a limited budget?A: For any design project, the real question is: Exactly how limited?Most people, I've found, don't have any specific dollar amount in mind when they think about refurnishing.

A year after Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake pledged to reinvigorate the city's civilian police review board, panel members say nothing much has changed. That's hardly surprising. The board still lacks the power to investigate citizens' complaints of police misconduct in a timely fashion, and its recommendations are routinely ignored by the department. A panel so toothless that even its own members publicly wonder whether their efforts are a complete waste of time obviously isn't accomplishing its mission as a mediator of police-community relations.

As McDonogh's girls lacrosse winning streak ballooned toward a record-tying 103 games, the top programs along the East Coast wanted a crack at ending the Eagles' run. Coach Chris Robinson gave as many of them a shot as possible. For the third straight year, the Eagles opened their season at Vero Beach, Fla., beating three nationally-ranked teams - including Vero Beach, which was ranked second behind the Eagles in one national preseason poll. Then, the Eagles came home to go after their sixth straight title in what is widely considered the toughest conference in the country, the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.

Why hasn't there been an article yet comparing pay in the different Baltimore hospitals to see how the Johns Hopkins Hospital pay compares to the rest ( "Hopkins workers strike over wages, working conditions," April 9)? As an occasional job seeker, I have found Hopkins to pay the best for my pay compared to others. Would The Sun be willing to investigate this for a story that informs the public? This would prove or highlight the relevancy of the SEIU 1199 strike at Hopkins. The lowest pay at Hopkins I've seen is at their university, not the hospital.

After "60 Minutes" ran a devastating piece on the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey O. Graham pledged to block President Barack Obama's nominees for Federal Reserve chairman and for the next secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Last week, after the CBS report was retracted because the star witness interviewed in the report, a former British security contractor, had been caught lying about whether he was at the site of the attack, the senator's position did not change.

The Stack family home sits at Lewis and Young streets, one block from the water's edge. The body of water is the mighty Susquehanna River; the town clinging to it, Havre de Grace. With double-decker 12-foot-wide wrap-around porches, the three-story home stands out from the quaint cottages and grand Victorians that line the town's streets. Interior dimensions measure 50 feet wide by 30 feet deep. The mustard yellow composite board exterior is dressed to the nines with white porch rails and staircases.

On most days in landlord-tenant court in Baltimore City District Court, the only issue is: "Did you pay your rent?" If not, you are on the street. No defense is allowed, such as "I was sick and lost time from work," "My benefit check did not arrive," or even, "We have no hot water and there is mold growing in the apartment because of the leaky roof. " The tenant must be able to pay the full amount to even raise a legal claim that the housing is posing a health danger. If rent due has not been paid, and the tenant cannot pay the full amount, the tenant is summarily evicted.

More often than not, when Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco sees defenses crowding the box before the snap, he will check out of a running play -- if that's the original call -- and into a passing play. The magic number is usually seven and the math is simple. If the Ravens are in a two-wide receiver set and the defense responds with seven men in the box (if the Ravens go three-wide, the number becomes six), they will like their chances running the ball. If the defense puts an eighth guy in the box, their odds aren't as good, so Flacco will switch to a pass play to take advantage of all of that green grass behind those eight defenders.
