Tamir Goodman is coming home. And this time, he'll gladly leave his old nickname behind him, stashed with all the hype and unmet expectations that became such a burden. Goodman, dubbed the "Jewish Jordan" by Sports Illustrated during his junior year at Talmudical Academy in Baltimore, will join the Maryland Nighthawks of the new Premier Basketball League after playing professionally in Israel. He'll be introduced to the media Wednesday at a news conference at Georgetown Prep, and his first game will be in January.

From its perch on a hill above the Baltimore Beltway at Old Court Road, Talmudical Academy endured the noise of cars whizzing past its open classroom windows on warm days for 25 years.But the sometimes-deafening roar will no longer intrude on classroom activities, thanks to a new air-conditioning system that the state government will help pay for.The private parochial school has received a promise that the state will pay $75,000 of the $160,000 bill to air condition the buildings.The Baltimore County Council is expected to approve at its meeting tonight the local government's $10,000 portion of the bill -- money actually provided by a private, anonymous donor that is being passed through the council.

Baltimore is said to have the largest percentage of Orthodox Jews of any American city and each year some 150 additional families move in, mostly from New York.Several reasons explain Baltimore's attraction for these religious families. Houses here are often relative bargains for large, young families.

There are indications that the University of Maryland men's basketball program has cooled on recruit Tamir Goodman.Sources inside the Terps athletic department and those familiar with his recruitment say the coaching staff was unimpressed with Goodman's play during an injury-slowed summer.Goodman went from obscurity to national sensation last January, when he accepted a scholarship offer from Maryland coach Gary Williams during his junior season at Talmudical Academy in Baltimore. Goodman, an Orthodox Jew, has since transferred to Takoma Academy, a Seventh-day Adventist institution near College Park, to seek better competition.
