Three Months

This wasn't supposed to be the year the Orioles returned to the playoffs. It wasn't even sold as a decent facsimile of the seminal "Why Not?" 1989 season. No, it was marketed as a year of tangible steps forward, when the respected, wily manager would begin shepherding a mix of homegrown talent and veterans with one-year commitments out of the baseball wilderness. Instead, halfway through this season, it has been more of the same dreaded darkness that has permeated Baltimore baseball for the past 13 years: the majority of the young lambs looking confused and overmatched and many of the veterans clearly meandering down the wrong side of the talent hill.

The problem: A section of the fence around the Washington Monument is damaged. The backstory: The Washington Monument in Baltimore has to be one of the most photographed sites in the city. The monument — more than 150 years old — is a destination for tourists and wedding parties alike, not to mention all the festivals that take place around it. And that's one of the reasons why the damage to a 15-foot section of the fence surrounding the historic site troubles Jean Renalds.

Maryland's job base took a U-turn back to growth in February, increasing by 8,100 positions after three consecutive months of losses, the U.S. Department of Labor said Friday. The federal agency also said January wasn't quite as bad as it originally estimated, with 5,100 jobs lost in Maryland rather than the 7,100 it measured earlier. Even so, the February growth wasn't enough to make up for the previous three months, when employers cut 10,700 jobs from the state's total. State officials cheered the initial estimate of February growth, which showed a significantly faster pace than the nation's after a worse-than-average showing in January.

The parent of Baltimore County Savings Bank reported Friday a profit of $607,000, or 14 cents per diluted share, for the three months ending June 30, compared with a net loss of $418,000, or 20 cents per diluted share, in the same period last year. Total assets increased to $622.3 million, from $569.4 million a year ago. BCBS is one of several banks in the region that received federal assistance designed to spur lending. Under the Troubled Assets Relief Program, BCSB received $10.2 million.

Sunday service will continue for at least three months for riders on Howard Transit's green buses, staving off a slim portion of the $1.9 million in cuts and fare increases that took effect Thursday. County Executive Ken Ulman said he was responding to a request from the county's Transportation Board, which heard pleas last month from riders who have no other way to get to work, stores or religious services on Sundays. "We're going to continue it for three months and monitor it to see where things are," Ulman said.

The continued development of Orioles outfielder Felix Pie had been one of the few positives from the first couple of weeks of the season. But the Orioles will now have to wait at least three months before they see him play again. A magnetic resonance imaging taken Monday, followed by a subsequent doctor's visit, revealed that Pie had torn the latissimus dorsi muscle away from the bone in his back. The injury won't require surgery, but it will keep Pie, whose injury was initially classified as a strained muscle in his upper back, out until at least late July.

Republican candidate Andy Harris has cut into Democratic Rep. Frank Kratovil's financial advantage in the most closely watched congressional contest in Maryland, new financial disclosure reports show. The Democratic incumbent has more money in the bank — $1,034,000 as of March 30, to Harris' $703,000. But the Republican raised more than Kratovil during the first three months of the year, collecting $324,000 to the freshman Democrat's $247,000, to narrow the gap. Federal Election Commission records show both men benefiting from the high-profile character of their potential rematch.

Jockey Jeremy Rose, coming off a three-month suspension for striking a horse in the face at Delaware Park, ended a frustrating day at the Maryland Million at Laurel Park yesterday when he won the $200,000 Ladies, the seventh race of the day, aboard Miss Lombardi. Until then, Rose - who has said he did not intentionally whip Appeal to the City in the face during a race June 23 - had been on chalk or near-favorite entries in the first five races yesterday. But although he finished in the money in four of those races, he managed nothing better than a second place, in the $200,000 Turf, the fourth race, with Dr. Rico.

The lush tropical greenery in the atrium has been replanted. The koi are back in their ponds. And the two glass sections of roof that tower eight stories above it all have been replaced, inspected and certified. Three months after a glass skylight collapsed into the atrium of the Embassy Suites Hotel in Hunt Valley, the hotel has reopened for business. The staffers of the hotel have planned a reopening celebration - scheduled for 5 p.m. today - to thank firefighters, employees and community members who helped out after the glass skylight came crashing down.

Nahr el-Bared, Lebanon -- The Lebanese army routed a group of Islamist militants from a Palestinian refugee camp yesterday, ending more than three months of intense fighting that left thousands homeless and killed more than 300 people. The final countdown to the battle in northern Lebanon started early in the day, when troops thwarted escape attempts by the militants, an army source said. At least 30 fighters were killed and 15 were captured at the Nahr el-Bared camp, the official said.
