UPDATE: Alas, it's not her. "Not even close," according to spokesman Ryan O'Doherty. Oh well. I'm sure Rawlings-Blake threw down back in the day. Just not in this photo. Take a look at the woman in the turquoise shirt at the bottom left-hand corner of this photo. Is it current Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, partying at Hammerjacks in 1997? The resemblance is striking. The photo is dated March 28, 1997 -- less than two months before they tore town the iconic Baltimore club.

The spokesman for the Baltimore City Fire Department said Friday he is leaving city government to move to D.C. because his wife has accepted a new job.  "It is a bittersweet moment for us," said Ian Brennan, who was previously a press secretary for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "I am proud of my wife for taking this step forward in her career, but it is sad to leave the city we love -- the city where our children were born. " In addition to working for Rawlings-Blake, Brennan also served as a spokesman for Mayor Sheila Dixon.

Baltimore's mayor, it turns out, has a soft spot for big fuzzy dogs and the two-time winner of the sexiest man alive title. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, speaking Friday on Mix 106.5's Jojo and Reagan show, had a bit more fun than she usually seems to. She gabbed about trying to snap a picture of Bo Obama on a trip to the White House and about her brush last year with the "really cute" (as she put it) George Clooney. The two met last November while Clooney was in Baltimore to take in the Ravens/Bengals game.

Once again this year, Maryland politicians and business people will travel to Las Vegas for the Global Retail Real Estate Convention - a three-day deal-making event beginning May 18. It's considered a "who's who" event, where the worlds of government and business mix among the glitz and glamour of casinos and parties. In all, 669 Marylanders will be in attendance, including 10 from Baltimore's government. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young, Council Vice President Edward Reisinger and Councilman Carl Stokes are all slated to make the trip.

The first snowflakes whirled down less than 48 hours after Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was sworn in as Baltimore's mayor. Before a week had passed, two blizzards had walloped the city, dropping nearly 4 feet of snow. Once a reticent legislator, Rawlings-Blake found herself guiding the city through the most massive snowfall in a century. She logged long hours in the cramped, windowless room that serves as the city's emergency operations center and, from a Humvee, surveyed streets studded with stranded cars.

Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is an embarrassment and a disgrace to anybody who ever attended Western High School. We were taught better than that, ignoramus. I'll take competency over personality any day. Let's go Rawlings-Blake. Justin Bieber needs to get an education on how to talk to the media or talk period. Stay in school. Why are you so excited because Beyoncé is pregnant? Her husband Jay-Z drops $350,000 on champagne and you don't even have $350 to pay your BGE bill. It's only entertainment.

When she was sworn in as mayor last year, I believe most Baltimoreans had perceived Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to be a straight-up, transparent politician. Now there are hints of possible ethics violations pertaining to her husband's employment with Johns Hopkins Health System ("Mayor has voted on deals involving her husband's employer," March 16). When Sheila Dixon was elected as mayor a few years back, I believe many of those same people had the same perception of her. Look how far her callous, me-first mentality got her. Patrick R.

The only thing I know about the upcoming mayor is what I read in Dan Rodricks' column ("For Baltimore, Rawlings-Blake a fine reflection of her father," Jan. 8). Her background and her father's legacy will do much to help Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. She's not expected to do and know everything. But she will be expected to have a ready resource of experts around her to help her. As council president, she understands this. Now that she will be mayor, I can imagine her biggest challenge will be, "How can I continue to grow the legacy left by my dad?"

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture is hosting a book fair this weekend that will highlight books about African Americans as well as showcase African American authors and illustrators. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake gives a reading at 2:00. "It's critical to have books and role models that reflect young readers," said the museum's executive director, Skipp Sanders. "Otherwise, the risk becomes that our next generation grows up feeling invisible, and it becomes that much harder for them to build a positive self-image at a critical time in development.

It does not take political expertise, a crime fighting background or an economics degree to understand that the city of Baltimore is struggling. As the economic engine for a metropolitan area of 2.7 million people, the continued vitality of the city is an issue of vital importance far outside its limits. Unfortunately for the last 15 years, a succession of mayors who are more interested in grabbing for the brass ring than they are in providing competent leadership for the city they claim to love have ruled Baltimore.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake defended President Obama's health care program Sunday as a panelist on NBC's "Meet the Press. " The panel included NBC journalists Andrea Mitchell and Chuck Todd and New York Times Columnist David Brooks. Todd introduced the segment talking about President Obama's recent setbacks, referring to 2013 as a "lost year" for the president. "I think that's a bit of an overstatement, 'The lost year?'

Over the years, my luck has been far from great. The study of good fortune, therefore, has been long time pursuit. Our mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, is blessed with incredible luck, and her gamble on Baltimore Grand Prix is the latest example. The week before the grand prix, the city of Baltimore experienced an earthquake, followed by Hurricane Irene and all the unnecessary hype that had us huddling in fear. Just days after the Baltimore Grand Prix, the city's been awash in the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee. The rains came and keep coming!
