When The Baltimore Sun requested three days of emails sent to or by a trio of officers who help run Baltimore's troubled speed camera program, the Police Department made clear the messages would be released only at a cost. As in about $2,000, possibly more. Yet the city Department of Transportation didn't charge The Sun anything for 6,400 pages of emails that were sent to or by several of its employees. Same city government, same legal department, same state public records law - but notably different outcomes that point to inconsistency when it come to applying the Maryland Public Information Act. The Sun asked both the police and transportation departments for emails that were written in mid-April, when the city abruptly suspended its red light and speed camera program amid fresh signs that some motorists had been wrongly ticketed.

Attorneys likely will begin laying out their cases before week's end in the criminal trial of Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold, who is accused of using taxpayer-funded police officers for his personal and political benefit. Leopold on Thursday waived his right to a jury trial, which means the case will be heard and decided by Circuit Judge Dennis M. Sweeney. The decision came after the trial opened Thursday with a day of jury selection. Leopold, 69, was indicted last March on four counts of misconduct in office and one count of fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary.

Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold has waived his right to a jury in his criminal misconduct trial, clearing the way for attorneys to make opening statements Friday in a case that now will be heard by a single judge. The surprise move came during the second day of jury selection in the trial of Leopold, who faces charges of fraud and misconduct for allegedly using his taxpayer-funded police detail to run personal and political errands. Neither Leopold nor his attorneys explained the reason for the change of course or its timing.

Jason Babin can still get after the quarterback. That, more than anything, is why after the veteran defensive end was surprisingly released by the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday, the Ravens were immediately mentioned as a potential fit. It makes sense. The Ravens have been looking to upgrade their pass rush all season. Defensive end Pernell McPhee has battled injuries all year and he's not been a factor in creating pressure. His replacement, Arthur Jones, has come on and had two sacks against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday but those were the first quarterback takedowns of his career.

Ravens All-Pro outside linebacker Terrell Suggs could play Sunday against the Houston Texans. The Ravens on Saturday activated the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year from the physically-unable-to-perform list, a procedural move required under league rules for him to be eligible to play. The team has decided to play Suggs if he feels and looks good after pregame warm-ups, according to sources familiar with the situation. The Ravens have until one hour before the game to designate their inactive players.

Baltimore's Department of Housing and Community Development has waived the affordable-housing requirement for the Lexington Square "Superblock" project, a development discussed Thursday at a meeting of the City Council's Taxation, Finance and Economic Development Committee. The housing department does not have the $9.5 million needed to subsidize the construction of 59 affordable apartments in the mixed-use development slated for the intersection of Lexington and Howard streets, according to a memo from Baltimore Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano.

It would be easier for Robin Small if she could simply give away cats from time to time. Or birds. Or dogs. Or ferrets. Or anything else adoptable that finds its way into Anne Arundel County Animal Control. "We, unfortunately, sometimes have to perform euthanasia," said Small, who runs the county shelter. She nuzzled a gray short-hair cat named Chile, a five-month resident of a small room crammed with 50 cat cages that seem to be constantly full. "There's no limit to how long she can stay," Small said, even though the shelter is again at capacity.

A day after he was waived to accomodate Anthony Allen's return to the active roster, undrafted free agent running back Bobby Rainey cleared waivers and was signed to the Ravens' practice squad. "I basically just want to pick up where I left off," Rainey said. "Offensively, I think I'm good. To get on offense, I have to do more on special teams. "   Rainey acknowledged that he was initially upset and confused when he learned prior to the Bengals game that he was being cut.   "It was a surprise to me, it caught me off-guard," Rainey said.
