The Recher Theatre, a Towson concert venue that opened in 1996, will soon become the Torrent Nightclub, according to co-owner Brian Recher. The Rec Room, an adjoining bar and restaurant, will also become part of the nightclub. The move drew immediate criticism from Baltimore County Councilman David Marks. He defended the Recher Theatre last fall after a downtown-Towson melee and said Wednesday that he was unaware and "extraordinarily disappointed" that the concert venue was switching its format.

Just when Towson thought it had stuck its flag in the ground as a renewed member of the country's elite college lacrosse programs, it ran into a hellbent Ohio State team on the same mission Sunday. Playing in a blustery Ohio Stadium where the 2,800 on hand offered only a hint of the home-field enthusiasm the football Buckeyes enjoy in front of 105,000 in the fall, Ohio State nevertheless prevailed 16-6 in the first-round game of the NCAA lacrosse tournament. The No. 3-seed Buckeyes dominated the second and third quarters, blowing open a game that had been tied 2-2 at one point in the first, on the way to quarterfinal match with Cornell - an upset winner over Maryland - on Saturday at Byrd Stadium in College Park.

The directions to the alleged brothel told the men that if they saw a house with green awnings, they'd gone too far. But some of them apparently misunderstood; would-be customers have shown up for years at the nearby house in Towson. Despite neighbors' complaints, police say, Di Zhang, 42, continued to operate the brothel from a white Colonial-style suburban home on Joppa Road, advertising on websites until this month, when county police and federal agents moved in. Neighbors said they weren't surprised to learn that Zhang, the operator of Jade Heart Health, had been charged with prostitution and human trafficking.
