Carl Stokes fills his days working to get a new all-male city charter school off the ground. The former 2nd District Baltimore City Council member who ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 1999 wants to open the Bluford Drew Jemison Math Science Technology Academy in East Baltimore by late August.

He also hopes to raise $750,000 from local philanthropic organizations.

When Orb got trapped along the rail and failed to make a charge in last year's Preakness, the racing world's dreams of a new Triple Crown winner faded for a 35th straight year. The drought looms larger every spring for a sport seeking a superstar to offset attendance declines and doping scandals. Hopes invariably rise anew on the first Saturday in May in Louisville. And this year will be no different as another packed field of 20 lines up to run the 140th Kentucky Derby. After a prep season during which several would-be contenders fell by the wayside because of injuries or flat performances, California Chrome emerged as a consensus favorite.

Just days after completing an undefeated boys basketball season by winning the Class 3A state championship with City on Saturday, Knights senior Kamau Stokes has verbally committed to play basketball at Toledo. The 5-foot-11, 155-pound guard confirmed via Twitter that he planned to play for the Rockets. Stokes, who also won a state championship with Dunbar in 2013, picked Toledo over reported offers from UMBC, Mount St. Mary's, Delaware and other Division I programs. Stokes transfered to City this academic year and helped make the talented No. 1 Knights the preseason favorite to win the 3A state title . A tenacious defender and effective outside shooter, Stokes scored 13 points in City's 59-48 championship win over Westlake.

Mary McElroy gave 22 years to the Baltimore City Fire Department as a firefighter-paramedic. The job, she says, gave her breast cancer. The state Workers' Compensation Commission agreed, issuing an order last fall that requires the city to cover any cancer treatments she may need for the rest of her life. She could also get tens of thousands of dollars from the city for permanent physical damage attributed to the disease. Now the city is challenging that award in Circuit Court, focusing on a recent change in state law that has made it easier for the 52-year-old McElroy and other Maryland firefighters to receive often-substantial workers' compensation benefits.

One of the areas the City boys basketball team most wanted to improve on was closing out games in the fourth quarter. The No. 4 Knights had an opportunity Thursday against pesky Woodrow Wilson (D.C.). Some big baskets, key stops and enough free throws down the stretch provided an early-season answer as City came away with a 76-69 win over the Tigers at Forest Park's Spark at the Park. Trailing 55-53 early in the fourth quarter, the Knights went on a 9-0 run to pull away for the win. A balanced effort on offense got the job done, with Kamau Stokes and Omari George each finishing with 19 points, Timmy Bond adding 16 and Juwan Grant scoring 10. City improved to 3-0 on the season, while Wilson fell for the first time and is now 2-1. "The fourth quarter, we wanted to have the same intensity we started the game with because we knew if we didn't pick it up, they would come back," Bond said.
