As more than a hundred people gathered in the shade by the federal courthouse to protest the verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant traced a line between the shooting in Florida and the violence that has claimed the lives of scores of black men in Baltimore this year. "It would be hypocritical for us to come on this corner and cheer and shout and wave signs for Trayvon Martin and remain silent for the 120 black babies in Baltimore who have been killed with no rally," Bryant told the crowd.

As one of the shortest players on the Morgan State football team, Herb Walker Jr. has a nickname among his Bears teammates: "Smurf. " The running back, who recently confessed to being 1 inch shorter than his already diminutive listed height of 5 feet 8, has heard worse from defenses. The insults don't bother him as much as the assumptions behind them. Opponents tell Walker he's "soft. Or I don't run hard," he said. "But they'll feel me when I get the ball. " Neither label fit after the 19-year-old Walker set a school record a week ago. In Morgan State's 26-23 loss Saturday to Holy Cross, 26-23, the sophomore rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.

As the former wide receivers coach at Maryland, first-year head coach Lee Hull is intent on adding a passing element to Morgan State's offense. But tailback Lamont Brown III hopes Hull won't overlook what has been the unit's traditional strength: running the football. “I look at myself and Herb [Walker Jr.] as two of the top running backs in the [Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference],” said Brown, a redshirt sophomore. “Whether [Hull] wants to run the ball or we have to get involved with the passing game, we're still going to be there, and he has two of the best running backs in the league and can't forget about us.” Brown, redshirt sophomore Walker and senior Tracy Martin make up a formidable partnership in the offensive backfield.

The mother of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin will speak Sunday at a Baltimore mega-church about how she's coping with her son's death, according to the church's pastor. Sybrina Fulton's appearance at Empowerment Temple Church in Northwest Baltimore will be her first in the city, and an opportunity for local parishioners to hear from "a mother who has grieved but still has strength," according to the Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant, who founded the 8,000-member church in 2000. Martin, an African American 17-year-old, was shot in February in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., by Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.

A mother who says she watched helplessly as a plainclothes security guard at a Rite Aid in Hampden scooped up her 10-year-old son and held him upside down is suing the guard and the corporation for $6 million. In the lawsuit, filed this week in Baltimore City Circuit Court, Tracy Martin claims that the guard, Walter Jackson, then dragged her son back into the store and searched his pockets as the boy screamed and cried. Jody Cook, a spokeswoman for Pennsylvania-based Rite Aid Corp., said she hadn't seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.

HOLLYWOOD -- John Hughes, who wrote and produced ''Home Alone,'' (Chris Columbus directed), is incredulous over the success of the $18.2 million production. It had sold $257.5 worth of tickets as of the middle of last week and is about to become the third-highest grossing movie ever."Who would have guessed it?" he asks, comparing it to his previous efforts, such as "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and other teen-oriented pictures that have reached plateaus of $70 million -- but never beyond. His newest film, "Career Opportunities," which he also wrote and produced, is, in his view, "a disappointment" because "I didn't have my usual creative control."
