Baltimore resident Sean Harris has grown accustomed to seeing doctors and staff at the Children's Hospital at Sinai; they've provided care for his 3-year-old son, Sean Jr., who in March was diagnosed with a brain tumor. On Sunday morning, Harris and his extended family took part in Sinai's seventh annual Race for Our Kids. The family met up with pediatric oncologist Yoram Unguru, who is currently treating Sean Jr.'s brain tumor. It turned out to be a family gathering - of wives, siblings, aunts, cousins, children, siblings and children.

When Maryland's government hires a company to provide around-the-clock nursing care to severely disabled foster children - arguably the state's most vulnerable residents - it requires the contractor to have its business affairs in order. But LifeLine, which attracted media attention after the recent death of a 10-year-old resident, had many signs that it was struggling financially to staff its Laurel apartments with an appropriate number of nurses. One recent indication was a sign posted on some of LifeLine's units in the Laurel-area community of Russett Green on May 12. "Payroll Alert," read the sign.

An early-morning three-alarm fire that heavily damaged Holland Manor, a Riderwood assisted-living facility, early Saturday morning resulted in more than a dozen staff and residents being evacuated from the building. Twelve residents and staffers were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to WJZ-TV. The historic home in the 800 block of Landrake Road had been known as Bush Manor for years. During the 1920s, it had been part of the estate of Baltimore-born silent movie star Francis X. Bushman, who starred in the 1926 classic "Ben Hur. " The fire is under investigation.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake plans to beef up her Billing Integrity Unit, which she's tasked with cracking down on the chronic problem of erroneous tax bills in Baltimore. Created in 2010, the unit is currently staffed by three people. But their ranks will increase to seven employees under the mayor's proposed $2.5 billion Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which the City Council will review at a series of hearings today. The city plans to hire an appraiser, tax analyst, revenue analyst and data manager at a cost of $290,000 to better catch erroneous bills.

WASHINGTON -- It will all look very official and proper when President Clinton, flanked by beaming congressional leaders, signs the tax and budget bills into law this morning.But don't look too closely.Between the lines lurks what can only be called human nature. Typos. Bloopers. Unintended consequences. Hidden provisions that have nothing to do with the budget. Vague directives. And outright mistakes.And all because of the way Congress operates: in a rush. In Washington, it is simply standard operating procedure to haggle and procrastinate and then cram at the last minute, pull an all-nighter and get the deal done in a flurry of adrenalin.

Baltimore's WBFF appears to have hunkered down after a patriotic statement of support for President Bush read by the station's anchors prompted widespread media scrutiny and vexed some staffers. At a recent meeting with employees, station officials warned staffers not to talk to the press, pointedly reminding them they could be fired if they did. And Bill Fanshawe, the station's general manager, criticized The Sun for its coverage of the original incident in a rare, on-air editorial which ran Monday and Tuesday.

WASHINGTON - They swarmed the offices of U.S. representatives Wednesday demanding answers. "We're here to ask questions," said Alex DeOrazio, as he greeted a staffer for Rep. G.K. Butterfield, a Democrat from North Carolina. But this was no congressional probe, and DeOrazio was no investigator. The Glen Burnie fifth-grader was one of a group of elementary- and middle-school pupils who fanned out through the Cannon House Office Building to quiz congressional staffers on their knowledge of the Constitution as part of Liberty Day. In Butterfield's office, legislative fellow Ryan McKeon knew that senators serve six-year terms, but he was stumped on the next question: "What are the three rights in the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?"

FRISCO, Texas - Towson trailed North Dakota State, 21-7, at halftime of Saturday's Football Championship Subdivision title game, but nothing took more of a beating than the turf at Toyota Stadium. The Bermuda-grass field at the 20,500-seat facility was constantly getting dug up by players, and as many as 40 staffers from the stadium and the NCAA flooded the field in between changes of possessions to stamp down the turf. Towson running backs Terrance West and Darius Victor each tripped on separate running plays in the second and third quarter, and Bison senior quarterback Brock Jensen had to jump on one loose chunk of grass before lining up under center in the third period.

Donna L. Hansen, a former congressional staffer whose lifelong struggle with diabetes led her to become an advocate for diabetes and cardiac research, died Nov. 15 from heart and kidney failure at Carroll Hospice's Dove House. The Sykesville resident was 56. "She was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 8 years old, suffered her first heart attack when she was 21, and a second heart attack when she was 31," said her husband of 25 years, Steven Hansen. "When her heart disease forced her to quit full-time work, she devoted herself to helping those with diabetes and cardiac disease, and helped initiate an important new outreach program in her Columbia church," said Mr. Hansen.

In the latest sign of turmoil affecting Charles County business executive Charles Lollar's Republican campaign for governor, a former campaign staffer has written an open letter imploring him to "do what it takes to get your campaign back on track. " Mike Phillips, writing to a candidate he calls someone "that I count as a friend and who used to count me as one," told Lollar in his letter that he is "sadly mistaken" if he thinks the campaign is heading in the right direction. Phillips, who said he had resigned from the campaign, said he had witnessed "abusibe" conduct by the campaign's leadership, "I saw behavior from your staff leadership that were mistreating other staff members, verbally abusive, lied regarding a number of campaign activities, shunned people not on the campaign who sought to volunteer, shunned those who were officially invited by you personally to join the team and effectively 'fired”'without provocation," said Phillips, whose letter was first published by Jeff's Qunton's Quinton Report blog on Maryland Republican politics.

Police investigating a Baltimore schools staffer in connection with students who were sold cookies laced with marijuana arrested him after searching his home and finding a handgun, court records show. Clyde Tatum, 40, of the 2800 block of Lake Ave., is being held on $350,000 bond on charges of being a felon in possession of a handgun, according to police. The Sun reported last week that several students at the Reach! Partnership School, which serves students in sixth through 12th grade in Northeast Baltimore, had been taken to a local hospital as a precaution after ingesting cookies laced with suspected marijuana.

Baltimore City's interim schools chief, Tishsa Edwards, says the $10,000 "retention stipends" being given to seven top system administrators are needed as an incentive to keep the team of her predecessor, Andrés Alonso, intact until June, when a permanent schools CEO is scheduled to be named. But that's a lot of money for staffers who are already quite well paid for their services, and it raises the question of why they should need more to continue doing their jobs. Put another way, what exactly is the public getting for the money it's shelling out to keep a handful of managers at their desks for the next eight months?

The Obama White House has been trying to de-legitimize Fox News almost from the day it took office. Remember the media blitz of 2009 launched by then White House Communications Director Anita Dunn? I stood with Fox on that one on principle and came away impressed with the almost tribal unity that Roger Ailes inspired in his troops in the face of White House pressure. Ailes showed more of that Thursday with a memo sent to the Fox newsroom. Read it below, and try to tell me he's not right.

WASHINGTON -- Even before Prince George's County State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey interviewed to work for Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes in 1994, he was confident he had the job. After all, the two shared Ivy League alma maters. "I thought that would be a real feather in my cap," Ivey said. "Then he says, `Princeton and Harvard, not bad - but where's Oxford on there?'" Sarbanes, 74, was jokingly referring to his days as a Rhodes scholar, but the colorful exchange gave the young lawyer a snapshot into how particular the senator can be about those who serve him. Yet, in doing so, Sarbanes, who is retiring, has shown an ability for spotting talented individuals, considering many of his staffers gained plenty of political prestige after they left his service.

Right now Rick Abbruzzese works at a desk a few feet from Gov. Martin O'Malley's office in the State House. In two weeks, he'll report a few blocks away to the Annapolis law firm Rifkin, Livingston, Levitan and Silver LLC, where he will likely lobby his soon-to-be former boss. Ditto for Joseph C. Bryce, a State House staffer for nearly two decades and O'Malley's influential chief legislative officer for the past six years. Last month he announced his departure and has moved into a new office at Manis, Canning and Associates where he'll cajole, pressure and maneuver on behalf of corporate clients.
