With windows for their canvas, Parkville High students put their creative talents to work during the local business association's fourth annual window decorating contest. Their assignment at Hohne Pool and Spa offered them some of the largest glass spaces on Harford Road. They checked sketches, drawn in their classroom, and set to work on a blustery, cold afternoon. Standing in raised but empty flower beds, they could extend their brushes to the tops of the tall windows. The falling temperatures and gusting winds Thursday had Ed Pinder, a contest organizer, wondering if the Parkville students could complete the task.

A rusted old Chevy Impala fell victim. As did a new red Cadillac. And a block over, Thomas Saunders' gold Grand Caravan also was hit. On Monday morning, residents in one corner of West Baltimore woke up to find that someone had shot out their car windows. In the chilly air, a group of police officers looked over the damage and took reports. Neighbors, on their porches and in the street, looked on. "This used to be a really nice street," Saunders, 57, said. In all, police counted at least eight damaged cars in the 2200 blocks of N. Dukeland St. and N. Koko Lane.

Five years after founding Window Nation in the Baltimore area, the brothers have built the company into the 28th-largest firm on trade magazine Qualified Remodeler's list of the top 500 home-improvement companies nationwide.

It sounded like a Baltimore-themed idea that made sense. To celebrate a century of screen painting, 100 new, colorful window screens would be installed along the commercial district of Highlandtown, in the very heart of the neighborhoods where this summertime tradition flourished. Why not? Despite our dependence on air conditioners, people still open their windows in this Baltimore neighborhood - and there are in fact hundreds of window screens along Eastern Avenue. Because this remains a commercial street full of traditional small businesses, there are not so many ground-floor screens.

WASHINGTON -- In a case that echoes earlier fights over terms like "Light Beer" and "The Pill," the federal government has issued a preliminary decision denying Microsoft Corp. a trademark for the word "Windows" on its hugely successful computer program by that name.If it is upheld, the decision by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which Microsoft will appeal, would be a blow to the software giant. Microsoft dominates the market for programs that provide the basic instructions on IBM-compatible personal computers.

Football players sometimes get creative with their ankle tape. Instead of wrapping their feet before a game, they ask a trainer to loop white or brightly colored tape around the outside of the shoe in a way that obscures the shoe company's logo. Known as "spatting," it is considered a fashion statement by some and by others a safeguard against sprained ankles. But it better not occur at the University of Maryland. After an initial warning, the school would be liable for at least $160,000 for a second violation and a minimum of $240,000 for a third offense, according to the new contract between the university and Under Armour, its official outfitter.

Vacant buildings are many things: signs of decay, eyesores and dangerous. They might also hold a strong relationship to crime. According to frequently updated data provided by Open Baltimore, there is a strong correlation between vacant buildings and certain crimes, such as shootings and homicides. Common assault, a physical attack, increases from neighborhood to neighborhood as the number of vacant houses increases — a trend shared with crime in general. And it does so at a much more pronounced rate than other crimes.

With one debate down and six weeks to go until Maryland's primary election, the political narrative in the governor's race sounds something like this: Neither Attorney General Doug Gansler nor Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is dazzling Democratic voters; Heather Mizeur, the party's other candidate, seems to have real grass-roots support, but still must convince moderates she can win a statewide election against a Republican. Of course, conventional wisdom says the Democratic governor's race is Brown's to lose.
