He was a stray from the mean streets of Hampden, with a soft spot for belly rubs that hinted at better days in the past. She was an upscale shop cat who spent her days napping in a sunny window on the Avenue. He spotted her there one day last month, snoozing among the blow-up pink flamingos and eye shadow cases. He fell in love. Since then, says Debra Stone, owner of Kiss N' Makeup on 36th Street, this white and gray tom cat has parked himself on the sidewalk in front of the store each afternoon at four o'clock, singing to his love, Mrs. Puff.

Prince George's Little Theatre opens its 53rd season with "The Hallelujah Girls," giving area audiences their first opportunity to enjoy this show that celebrates all holidays — from Christmas to the Chinese New Year and ending happily on the Fourth of July. Each scene of this comedy at Bowie Playhouse is set on the eve of a holiday that is observed by frequently outrageous characters — including a quartet of well-ripened Georgia peaches who support one another as they strive for success in love and business.

Maytag Corp. shares jumped yesterday after rival Whirlpool Corp. unexpectedly unveiled a $17-a-share buyout bid to become Maytag's third suitor. Despite a number of question marks that surround Whirlpool's $1.37 billion cash-and-stock proposal, investors bet that Maytag will draw an even higher bid: In New York Stock Exchange trading, Maytag shares surged $2.03, or 13 percent, to close at $17.48. Whirlpool said that if it succeeds in acquiring cash-strapped Maytag, it could strengthen the smaller company's competitive position by introducing technological innovations and economies of scale.

There's something comfortably familiar about 2nd Star's current production of Ken Ludwig's Moon Over Buffalo, playing through March 23 at Bowie Playhouse in White Marsh Park. The play features many of the actors we enjoyed last spring in the company's hilarious version of Ludwig's big hit Lend Me a Tenor. In the current play, the group exploits a wealth of humor in a somewhat weaker play. The story is set in 1953 in Buffalo, where actors Charlotte and George Hay have returned to the stage in a run-down theater managed by Charlotte's mother, Ethel.

"The Robber Bridegroom," a musical comedy based on Eudora Welty's novel of the same name, is meant to be taken on several levels. That's the overwhelming reaction I had to the play as it was brought to life Friday at Colonial Players of Annapolis, where it will play through May 27. On one level, it's a fable about a doting Southern father, his shrewish second wife, his spoiled, nubile, high-spirited daughter and her opportunistic, thrill-seeking suitor....

With the non-waiver trade deadline coming at the end of the month, the Orioles are "going hard" after Milwaukee Brewers' Zack Greinke, according to an industry source. The source, an executive with another big-league club, said the Orioles appear to be the most aggressive suitor currently for Greinke, the 2009 American League Cy Young Award winner who is a free-agent at the end of the season. Talks are preliminary and certainly the Orioles won't be the only interested party if the Greinke sweepstakes open this month.

St. Joseph Medical Center has narrowed its search for a strategic partner to three, the hospital said Wednesday. The troubled hospital did not identify the finalists, but several sources with knowledge of the process confirmed that the potential buyers are LifeBridge Health, which owns Sinai and Northwest hospitals; Ascension Health, which owns St. Agnes Hospital; and the University of Maryland Medical System. "The St. Joseph Medical Center Board met Jan. 19 and narrowed the number of potential strategic partners to three for the next round of discussions," reads a statement from St. Joseph.

The University of Maryland Medical System and LifeBridge Health are among five suitors vying for a partnership with St. Joseph Medical Center, though a deal will likely be complicated by the Towson hospital's poor financial situation. St. Joseph has had a sharp drop in revenue and patient admissions since 2009, when allegations of unnecessary coronary procedures and a separate kickback scheme were made public. A deal with St Joseph "would certainly take some serious discussion on how we try to mitigate those losses," E. Albert Reece, dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine, said Friday.

The dismantling of Exelon Corp.'s Zion Station nuclear power plant near Chicago is setting several remarkable precedents. It's the biggest-ever nuclear decommissioning job in the United States, says Exelon, which is seeking permission to buy Constellation Energy and Baltimore Gas & Electric. The enterprise will take a decade, employing hundreds. Instead of separating the radioactive debris from the nonradioactive, the usual method, workers will ship most of the rubble to Utah and dump it in the desert.

Apparently Darek Braunecker, Cliff Lee's agent, can find mystery teams as well as Scott Boras. There are media reports of two seven-year offers for Lee, but the Yankees, Rangers, Nationals and Angels all have indicated they will not go that long. The Twins covet Lee, so they could be flying under the radar. Carl Pavano, who earned $7 million last year, is a free agent; Joe Nathan and Michael Cuddyer (a combined $21.75 million in 2011) could come off the books after next season.

AFTER INCREASING their support for President Bush in last fall's elections, black voters are being aggressively courted by an emboldened Republican Party and wooed anew by a humbled Democratic Party that strayed. It's a good position to be in, and black voters should play hard to get. The competition forces both parties to better address the needs and concerns of all black people. A new generation of politically astute young voters stands to benefit the most. Detached from civil rights-era politics, they don't define their positions in narrow racial terms.

A day after Mayor Sheila Dixon's defense team signaled it would be trashing developer Ronald Lipscomb, the one-time paramour who will testify that he gave her gift cards for the needy that she spent herself, Not-Ronald-Lipscomb appeared on the witness stand. His real name is Edward Anthony, but his testimony Friday seemed designed to portray him as good boyfriend to Lipscomb's bad boyfriend. Anthony is still dating the mayor, for one thing, while Lipscomb has gone back to his wife.
