The owner of the Polock Johnny's stall at Lexington Market says she will close the business before the end of the year. The stall's owner gave her Saturday morning customers a simple reason for closing up. "There's no money coming in," said the woman, who would not give her name, but seemed surprised that word had gotten out about the closing. Previous Sun articles and photographs have identified the owner as Diane Wilkins. Sausage news travels fast. Tamar Fleishman, a Baltimore food and restaurant blogger, got the news from her husband, who heard it straight from the stall's staff on his annual Friday-before-Christmas visit to Polock Johnny's with his father and uncles.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved rules changes in men's lacrosse Wednesday regarding stalling rules and faceoff tactics. Starting in 2015, a visible clock can be used to time the 30-second stalling segment in facilities capable of displaying the clocks. Division I men's lacrosse programs will be required to have the clocks displayed by 2016, and Division II and Division III will be required to have visible clocks by 2017. The panel also supported the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Rules Committee recommendation that two clocks be used, one at each end of the field.

To no one's surprise, Saturday in Long Island broke gloomily, with neither dark angry clouds nor a blazing sun. The sky just hovered, as did an unmoving humidity. The clouds are burning off now, and it could be a sunny afternoon. Belmont Park feels crowded and cramped. Everything is behind some sort of barrier. Every passage way is too narrow for the people trying to get through it. What should have been the anxious buzz of people hoping to see history is now the unsettled disappointment of knowing they won't . The crowd isn't nearly what it would have been but it's still large and, remember, there's nobody allowed out in the infield here.

Thomas Frederick Foell, who formerly owned a Lexington Market butcher stall, died Sunday of complications from multiple sclerosis at his Timonium home. He was 65. His business was well known in the city's downtown shopping district - chiefly because its name was emblazoned on the thousands of brown paper shopping bags he gave out during his 30 years at the market. Born in Baltimore and raised in Westport and Lochearn, he was a 1954 graduate of Milford Mill High School. After studying at Oxford Academy in Pleasantville, N.J., he earned a business management degree at Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, W.Va.

The 53-year-old owner of a long-standing Utz potato chips stall in Lexington Market and his 21-year-old girlfriend are accused of running a side business over the counter, selling guns to Bloods, Crips and Hells Angels among others, according to a criminal complaint filed late last month in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. Michael Papantonakis, who has worked at the stand since his father bought it in 1970, is also accused of unsuccessfully trying to have the market's executive director beaten with "a bat or something, just enough to break his arms and legs," the document claims, though it does not specify the nature of the alleged dispute.

Johns Hopkins Hospital and the labor union that represents 2,000 service workers ended contract talks without an agreement Tuesday night, despite intervention by the governor. The talks were the first since members of the 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East labor union called off a four-day strike last week after Gov. Martin O'Malley asked the two sides to take a one-week cooling-off period. No new bargaining date has been scheduled, but neither side has said it will suspend negotiations.

After No. 10 Johns Hopkins pulled within two goals of No. 6 North Carolina at 10-8 just 1 minute, 53 seconds into the fourth quarter Saturday, the Tar Heels' Joey Sankey hung up long-stick midfielder Michael Pellegrino in front of the net and stood behind the cage for about two minutes. Blue Jays fans screamed for a stalling call on Sankey, but officials - sticking to a recent rule change - did not assess the stall until Pellegrino stepped out of the crease. As the 30-second shot clock wound down to zero, Sankey scored off a pass from senior attackman Pat Foster (Boys' Latin)

Key senators have put language in the state budget bill that would stall Maryland's efforts to limit one of the Chesapeake Bay's main pollutants, phosphorus. The amendment by the Budget & Taxation Committee would prohibit the state from issuing new regulations on phosphorus, pending the results of an economic impact study. And when that is done, the committee would have 45 days for review and to recommend further action. Sen. James N. Mathias Jr., an Eastern Shore Democrat who sought the budget restriction, says he wants to shield the state's farmers and the poultry industry from potentially very costly and disruptive regulations.

Sweet expectations are mixing with a bitter reality for longtime fans of Rheb's Candy in Lexington Market: After 70 years, the family-owned sweet shop is shutting down its stall Saturday. "They're closing? Why? I'm shocked, I'm shocked," said a frowning Barbara Dean as she prepared to spend $85 on butter creams, almond paste and boxes of dark chocolate as Christmas gifts. "I'm sad," she said. "It's just a tradition to come to Lexington Market. It's the end of an era." Rheb's President Wynn Harger said he had decided to close the stall and focus on his flagship Wilkens Avenue shop and growing Internet sales primarily because of his company's issues with the management of the market.

The Maryland General Assembly yesterday held an extensive set of hearings on a variety of bills dealing with marijuana.  The bills varied from outright legalization to various decriminalization options. Much of the debate was predictable, but a few changes to the script did appear.   Law enforcement and prosecutors from around the state rallied in Annapolis to testify against legalization and many of the reform efforts.  This overwhelmed the couple of retired law enforcement officers who legalization advocates have been touting as representative of the law enforcement community's willingness to surrender their efforts at drug enforcement.

Peter Morici's blames President Barack Obama and the Federal Reserve for failure to avert a "brewing economic crisis" without even mentioning the Republican House's refusal to even consider the jobs bills and any proposals that would spur economic activity ("Another economic crisis is brewing," Nov. 19). Professor Morici might at least note that each House refusal to spend, including even the chamber's stall of the Farm Bill that would force $40 billion in food stamp cuts, takes potential spending money from the middle class and poor, and continues the post-stimulus' four-year stall of anything that may help the economy.
