Neuman, for failing to appear at a meeting Wednesday at which the Board of Public Works approved the move of the state Department of Housing a Community Development to Prince George's County. Over the opposition of three Republican members of the Anne Arundel House delegation, the board voted 3-0 to ratify a lease with a developer at the New Carrollton Metro stop for the new department headquarters.

Alex Smith has revealed the name of and the executive chef for his Japanese restaurant at the Four Seasons Baltimore Hotel. The new restaurant's name is Azumi, and the executive chef is Eiji Takase.  Smith said that master sake sommelier Tiffany Dawn Soto will be assisting Azumi with its sake list and beverage program.

Developed for the hotel by the San Francisco-based Mina Group, Pabu, along with the coffee shop Lamill, closed in June.  Both spaces are being re-developed and will be operated by Smith's Baltimore-based Atlas Restaurant Group, which currently operates the Harbor East restaurant Ouzo Bay. Azumi is set to open in November.

COLLEGE PARK — Maryland's president said Friday that the search for outgoing athletic director Debbie Yow's successor would begin immediately and that his impending retirement should not affect the process. Yow, 59, announced Friday that she was leaving to take the same position at North Carolina State and was introduced at a news conference in Raleigh. She signed a five-year, $350,000 contract. Maryland President C.D. "Dan" Mote Jr., who is set to retire Aug. 31, expressed concern about delaying the search.

To put it mildly, Baltimore is an interesting choice for the potentially historic owners meeting this week that is expected to determine who will be baseball's next commissioner. Representatives of the 30 clubs will come together Wednesday at the Hyatt Regency for two days of meetings and politicking that could shape Major League Baseball for the next generation. That's great. We love it when important things happen in Baltimore, but we'd probably love it a lot more if the election of baseball's new fearless leader came along with an announcement that the 2016 All-Star Game will be at Camden Yards or some kind of resolution to the long-simmering television rights dispute between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals.

WASHINGTON - The White House is considering whether to act this summer to name a permanent successor to George J. Tenet, the director of central intelligence, who is scheduled to step down July 11, congressional officials and others involved in the discussions said yesterday. John McLaughlin, Tenet's top deputy, was selected earlier this month by President Bush to take over as acting director. But Bush is now reconsidering an earlier plan to leave McLaughlin in place through the November election, the sources said.

Because of the snowstorm, Baltimore's Democratic leaders postponed yesterday their plans to pick a successor to the late Del. Howard P. Rawlings, who died last month. The 40th District State Central Committee, a five-member body charged with recommending a replacement for Rawlings to Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., will meet at 6 p.m. today at Baltimore City Community College to interview applicants and make its selection. State law requires the governor to fill a vacancy within 30 days after the position becomes open.

When Princeton's 2012 campaign ended with a 6-5 loss to Virginia in the first round of the NCAA tournament, one of the biggest questions looming was how the program would replace goalkeeper Tyler Fiorito, a four-time All American who was the Ivy League Player of the Year. Matt O'Connor has provided the answer. The freshman has surrendered just 15 goals in two starts and made a game-high 10 saves in the No. 14 Tigers' 11-8 upset of No. 5 Johns Hopkins Friday night. O'Connor anchored a defense that limited the Blue Jays to their lowest output of the season.

The committee, established by the board of trustees' executive committee, includes alumni, faculty, administrative staff and students, a college spokesman said.

There is a shared vision among the senior officers of the college and we need to identify the individual who best can lead Western Maryland on its trajectory toward ever-higher quality and recognition," said James I. Melhorn, board chairman.

I strongly disagree with your account on Ben Jealous' legacy as NAACP president, as well as with your reporter's poll of "civil rights leaders" called to vouch for the pick of Cornell William Brooks as Mr. Jealous' successor ( "Attorney Cornell Brooks to Lead NAACP," May 18). Mr. Jealous often embarrassed the NAACP; for example, in contravention of long standing NAACP policy, he backed deliberately separate, homogeneous homerooms for black boys and black girls at an otherwise integrated public high school in Pennsylvania.

Cornell Brooks is inheriting the leadership of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People at a time when the nation's oldest civil rights organization is experiencing a resurgence of influence and membership in its long struggle for equal rights. Mr. Brooks, whose appointment as NAACP chief was announced Saturday, is a lawyer, minister and long-time civil rights activist who is well equipped to carry forward the new initiatives begun in 2008 by his predecessor, Benjamin Jealous.

At NASA Goddard Space Flight Center last month, Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski and space agency Administrator Charles Bolden stressed the importance of maintaining budget support for the James Webb Space Telescope, keeping it on track for a 2018 launch. Sticking to that schedule is the job of the Webb telescope's project manager, Bill Ochs, who, from his office on the Greenbelt campus, oversees all of the moving parts slated to come together and be blasted into space in 41/2 years. It's a complicated job, Ochs acknowledged, but since new development and spending plans were approved three years ago for the delayed and over-budget project, things have been running smoothly.

It will probably feel a little odd when Tom Brady walks behind center for the first time Sunday afternoon. Whenever Brady played the Ravens in the past, he would look for Ed Reed lurking in the secondary -- he wrote “Find 20 on every play” on his wristband as a reminder -- and he could hear Ray Lewis from across the line of scrimmage barking out commands as the field generals aligned their personnel before the snap. On Sunday, though, those two Ravens legends will be nowhere to be seen or heard.

The nation's top Catholic bishops will convene this week in Baltimore to choose a new leader, a decision that will help set the course for an American church striving to build its appeal while grappling with stances on immigration and contraception coverage. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops expects close to 300 active and retired members as it holds its annual convention at the Waterfront Marriott Hotel. Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York is to begin the four-day gathering Monday with his final address as president after serving a three-year term.

The resignation of NAACP President Benjamin Jealous left the nation's most influential advocacy group for equality in search of a new leader at a particularly sensitive time in U.S. race relations, setting off a debate Monday about his potential successor. Jealous announced over the weekend that he will step down in December, sparking a flurry of analysis about his legacy and who could sustain his efforts to expand the group's reach, social media savvy and financial growth. The transition comes as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, headquartered in Baltimore, is working to blunt the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in June to invalidate a key provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Emotions, meanwhile, are still smoldering from last year's shooting death of Trayvon Martin — a case that Jealous repeatedly sought to highlight as an example of injustice against African-Americans.

A PEACEFUL changeover in power through successive elections is unheard of in Haiti, but taking place. After a remarkably unexciting campaign, the successor to the elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide will be elected tomorrow. Mr. Aristide will step down on constitutional schedule, Feb. 7.The likely winner is Rene Preval, of the president's Lavalas Party, who served him as prime minister in 1991. None of the other 13 presidential candidates has any significant visible support. The expectation is that Mr. Aristide, whose popularity among fellow Haitians is unchallenged, would hang around as gray eminence to his protege, and be eligible to seek the presidency again in five years.

The state's political corruption prosecutor will not step down in September as planned, but will instead remain in office until a replacement is named. In a harshly worded letter written this month, State Prosecutor Robert A. Rohrbaugh said he was "disappointed" that Gov. Martin O'Malley had not moved more swiftly to convene a commission required by state law to help select his successor. Rohrbaugh posted the letter on his website Monday morning. "It is important that this state have an independent prosecutor who is not an elected politician," Rohrbaugh wrote.

When President Barack Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, even he was surprised. Mr. Obama's winning of the prize was rightly controversial - after nine months in office it was difficult to determine what exactly had warranted it - but he wasn't the first U.S. president to win the award nor was he the first for whom the honor struck many as odd. Theodore Roosevelt, swaggering Rough Rider, big game hunter and jungle explorer - a man who...
