Marc Steiner's out, Nancy Grasmick's in, Martin O'Malley is letting a bygone be bygone, and street thugs are resting two whole days, on average, between murders. Where am I, and why am I here? Last I knew, this was a place with an authentic Baltimore voice on NPR (albeit one that commutes from Sparks). With a state schools superintendent who was being pushed out and a governor who held killer grudges. With murderers who spent Januarys snuffing out lives at a rate of one a day. What accounts for this sudden burst of public radio upheaval, political maturity and homicidal sloth?

Toto is not in Kansas anymore.He followed the yellow brick road east to a theater on the hill and won star billing in the "Wizard of Oz," one of two summer productions at Western Maryland College.An actor, so unknown he was nameless, landed the part of Dorothy's faithful pet two weeks ago.The college's Theatre on the Hill put out a cast call for a black cairn terrier to accompany Dorothy on the road to Oz. In addition to stage presence, the pup had to be smallenough to fit in a basket.After a few fruitless auditions, Ira Domser, the producer, began a kennel search for an amateur.

Making adjustments is nothing new for Joseph Toto. He has gone from being the go-to guy at Milford Mill in the lowest division of the Baltimore County soccer leagues to being a contributor on an Archbishop Curley High squad that competes in Baltimore's premier conference and was ranked as high as No. 3 nationally. The Liberian native has gone from a public school where, Toto said, wearing designer clothes and impressing female classmates was the norm, to a Catholic boys school where the dress code requires slacks, button-down shirts and ties.

Whenever space opened in front of Lansdowne's goal yesterday, Milford Mill sophomore Joseph Toto seemed to materialize with the ball and score. Toto looked like a pro against the visiting Vikings, scoring five times and assisting on a sixth goal by Saye Nimley during a 7-0 shutout in a Baltimore County Division III game. "I've been playing soccer for 10 or 11 years, and when the goalie's coming out, I know how to play the ball to score," said Toto, who was born in Liberia and came to America in 1999.

Toto Mechali knew he made a mean salsa when friends starting dropping by his Pikesville home with pickle jars, asking him to fill them. Then, through word of mouth, someone in New Jersey called with a request for two gallons.That's when the Moroccan-born construction-company owner started to think there might be a market for his Spanish-style salsa. His mother-in-law, Hilda Czarny, agreed, and put up a substantial part of her savings to help start the business. But no one was happier than his wife, Miki, who was growing tired of the amateur production line in their home.

McDonogh executed its game plan for 70 minutes -- score the first goal and then hang on defensively. In the final 10 minutes, however, visiting Archbishop Curley broke down McDonogh's zone defense and finally tied it on Joseph Toto's goal with 2:18 to play, the first league goal in six games against McDonogh. The No. 3-ranked Friars then won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association game, 2-1, early in overtime on a goal by Shawn Houseknecht. It was Curley's first win over No. 4 McDonogh (6-2-1, 5-1)

One chilly day in November 1949, a cargo plane from Miami landed at Baltimore Municipal Airport and was flagged routinely into the freight depot. Inside the cockpit, the pilots were nervous. During their flight a coffee container hanging from the control room ceiling had suddenly dropped loudly to the floor. The sharp crack it made had scared the plane's crew."He may have been dead when we left Miami but we were jittery all the way after that can dropped," said one of the pilots. The "he" was their cargo, Gargantua the Great, the ape of the age -- the great audience attraction said to have lifted the Ringling Bros.

Loyola's 12th man showed up at yesterday's game with No. 3-ranked Archbishop Curley and helped the No. 7 Dons earn a 1-1 tie with the visiting Friars. Both teams entered the game unbeaten. A raucous sideline gathering of 100 or so Loyola students, augmented by about 200 other fans, made its presence felt by booming a drum and screaming at the top of its lungs whenever a Curley player came near. "We weren't quite prepared for this big atmosphere," said Curley coach Barry Stitz, whose team needed a goal with five minutes left in the game to avoid defeat.

Victor Abiamiri's physique often drew second looks four years ago when he enrolled at Gilman as a 6-foot-4, 200-pound freshman. Today, the 6-5, 245-pounder is one of the nation's most sought-after Division I recruits as a defensive end. These days there are at least three 15-year-old sophomores who are turning heads - one each in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's A Conference, Baltimore City and Baltimore County leagues - as starters on...

Milford Mill's boys soccer players call their team "The United Nations," and for good reason. The Millers' 18-player roster is composed of six players of Jamaican decent and three of Trinidadian. Two each are from Ethiopia, Nigeria, Liberia and India, and one from Ghana. When they struggled through a 1-11 season two years ago, said one team member, their playing styles were as varied as their collective heritages. "There were adjustments to be made," said senior Chris Wellington, a Jamaican who was a sophomore on that losing team.

Halfway through Wednesday's Britney Spears concert in Washington, the girl-pop diva took a break from her vigorous dance routines to perch on a piano stool and connect with her fans. "Let me tell you about what's been happening in my life," she began. "Honestly, I've been a little bit overwhelmed. Sometimes my life feels bigger than me. ... I've been writing a lot and here's something I wrote just the other day. ... "I gave you my heart ... Baby boy, and now you are gone," she belted out. "I'm out the door.

Imagine an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" shot in sepia and set in the very, very damp future about an ex-clown whose meat-packed bones become the objects of desire for a cannibalistic delicatessen owner while various squads of rubber-clad commandos wage guerrilla warfare in the sewers. If you can imagine that, then you don't have to see "Delicatessen," opening today at the Charles. But if you can't, you'd better go see it.The movie, take it from me, is a lot more fun to sit through than to describe in a single sentence.

Not every Passover Seder table is set alike.Gefilte fish, chicken soup and matzo balls are highlights in many homes. But other Jews, who trace their heritage to the Mediterranean, celebrate the holiday meal with bold, colorful dishes enlivened with zesty spices, herbs, garlic, olive oil, lots of vegetables and marinated salads.Every year, Toto and Miki Mechali of Pikesville look forward to sharing such family recipes as pastel -- with layers of saffron-tinged mashed potato, ground meat and sliced eggs -- and tagine -- a bright melange of chicken and vegetables -- with guests.

OTHER states that rushed to follow misguided attacks on evolutionary theory in Kansas ought to study results of last Tuesday's Republican primary election there. Kansans turned out three conservative board members who had pushed to remove the study of human evolution from the state's science standards. Analysts believe the voters thought the board's action was embarrassing, making them seem "backward." The repudiation of this action, taken by the board last year, came after an unprecedented election campaign in which one of the defeated board members spent $35,000 on television advertisements trying to save her seat.
