Turns out the wheels of government move faster than you might think. Among the 2.5 million speed camera violations issued in the last three years to vehicles in and around Baltimore, thousands were mailed to the same government that issued the tickets. More than 8,000 of the $40 automated speed camera tickets have been issued to vehicles owned by the state, Baltimore City and Baltimore County since 2009, according to a Baltimore Sun analysis of citation records. A range of city-owned vehicles have been snapped by the speed cameras in area school zones or highway work zones.

Earlier this month on an insufferable Baltimore summer's day, the only thing my colleague and friend Jacques Kelly and I wanted after work were a couple of tall cool gin-and-tonics. And in pursuit of those wonderful English Raj heat beaters, our journey to McCabe's took us out Falls Road. As we came abreast of the Baltimore Streetcar Museum, there sitting in the middle of the North Avenue streetcar loop, chained to a piece of track fixed aboard a flatbed truck, was a harbinger of winter.

Chesapeake girls soccer coach Jerry McBee has long considered senior Tracey Dahlen his sweeper-plus, and it's easy to understand why. The four-year standout has all the defensive prerequisites: instincts to read the game, smarts to make the right decisions and natural athleticism to make sure positive things happen. Then comes the bonus from Dahlen: a long run with the ball or sharp passing with teammates that supplies timely offense. Simply put by McBee: "I've come to expect it all from Tracey."

Longtime Bel Air coach Bill Zimmerman was worried going into this season about his defense, particularly sweeper, where graduation left him with big shoes to fill. And then Nikki Hentz stepped, well, back.If Hentz, a forward last fall, plays the rest of the season as confidently at sweeper as she did last night in the No. 15-ranked Bobcats' 1-0 defeat of No. 4 Fallston, Zimmerman can turn his vocal chords on some other part of his team.Hentz was especially huge in the game's closing minutes doing what sweepers everywhere are supposed to do: save absent marking backs from disaster.

When John Carroll's girls soccer team needed a sweeper three years ago, Patriots coach Gary Lynch thought incoming freshman Jessica Hnatiuk would be a perfect fit. The only problem was that Hnatiuk had been trained as a midfielder. And when the freshman struggled as a sweeper in the preseason, Lynch moved her back to midfield. Lynch wouldn't let it go, however, telling Hnatiuk that they would try again the next year. Hnatiuk had problems again at the start, needing time to adjust to the position, along with the pressure from seniors who wanted a perfect season and a championship.

SANA'A, Yemen - The walled shantytown near the Old City here makes a horrifying impression: Houses made of refuse, families as large as 15 living in one room, children eating what appears to be dirt, pools of disease-laden water, piles of garbage and human waste buzzing with flies, the stench. The scene followed Aisha Sulaiman even after she was far away. She couldn't forget it. It is a place where children have gotten high snorting crushed glass. They beg barefoot on the city streets - the soles of their feet callused and evidently immune to the blazing asphalt, fired by the incessant Yemeni sun. Sulaiman, like many of the shantytown residents, belongs to the lowest social caste in Yemen, the Akhdam.
