When last season ended, Centennial's girls basketball team appeared to be on the verge of a breakthrough.It had finished 10-13, and 6-foot center Shannon Saltzman (9.8 points per game, 8.1 rebounds, 4.0 blocks, all team-highs) had become the inside force coach Beth Brown had envisioned.Then, Saltzman decided to pass up basketball to concentrate on volleyball her senior year, a decision that leaves the Eagles scrambling to fill a sizable void."It's a big loss, but Shannon made a mature decision and I respect her for it," said Brown, Centennial's second-year coach.

For two years Marcus L. Brown quietly served as the steady hand in a Baltimore Police Department whose top job had been beset by political turmoil and turnover. Through it all, the former deputy commissioner worked behind the scenes to execute then-Mayor Martin O'Malley's policing policies while largely avoiding the distracting scrutiny leveled against police commissioners. Until now. When O'Malley took over as governor in January, he picked Brown to lead the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, at a salary of $127,500.
