A decision by Gov. Larry Hogan to scuttle the Red Line or Purple Line, the long-planned light rail projects in Baltimore and the Washington suburbs that his administration is now reviewing, would be extremely unusual.
A new proposal to turn the land into an Under Armour campus and mixed-use neighborhood would take the area even farther from its industrial roots. But this plan, privately backed by the company's billionaire CEO, is unlikely to provoke similar upset, many said, especially because it provides an alternative to the company expanding into port operations in Locust Point.
People love to watch videos of returning service members coming home to the surprise of their kids and get misty-eyed as they share in emotional reunions. We expect a polished military color guard at the Super Bowl, with a tightly packed formation of jets flying over during the singing of the National Anthem. And we shed tears at the sacrifices soldiers make on the battle field. But empathy is not enough. If you really want to thank a veteran, encourage service as well as those who already
The head of Amtrak questioned whether an ongoing study of replacement options for the troubled, 140-year-old Baltimore & Potomac Tunnel is a "waste of time," given what he sees as a massive failure on the part of national leaders to commit adequate funding for major projects along one of the nation's busiest passenger rail system.
Gov.-elect Hogan didn't even have a chance to finish his thank-you tour before getting a nasty budget surprise: The state's deficit for the coming year has jumped from $400 to $600 million, and it's on a course to hit $1 trillion by 2020. To make matters worse, the state's job growth over the last year was one of the five lowest in the country. It's a tough time to take the helm.
The Baltimore area has an outsized share of job openings in fields that make heavy use of science, technology, engineering or math skills, occupations that pay more and are harder for employers to fill, according to a new analysis.
A historic YMCA in Mount Vernon, once home to confessed Soviet spy Whittaker Chambers and a hotel run by the former Baltimore International Culinary college, is to become a 197-room Hotel Indigo, one of the new owners said.
A nearly 120-year-old retaining wall that has troubled Charles Village residents for decades collapsed amid a month's worth of rain that fell Tuesday and Wednesday, dumping half a dozen cars, street lights and sidewalks onto the CSX rail tracks below.

Those of us living in and around DC — not just those of us, like me, who actually root for Baltimore's teams over Washington's — should follow the lead of our good neighbors to the north and realize that there can be life after a change of name for a professional football team.
Maryland's manufacturing job losses — the result of cutbacks, shutdowns and technological innovations requiring fewer people — are among the nation's steepest. Advocates say it's not too late to reverse that.
Export proponents want companies in the Baltimore region — and nationally — to do more international business as a way to propel economic growth. Exports accounted for an expanding but still fairly slim 7.7 percent of the metro area's economic activity last year.
Maryland's job base is finally back to the size it was half a decade ago — before the deep recession gouged a big chunk out of it. But numbers released Friday by the U.S. Department of Labor show that the state's job market remains far from normal.
U.S. commerce "would grind to a halt in a matter of days" in the wake of a crippling cyber attack that the nation's ports — including Baltimore — are ill prepared for, according to a new Brookings Institution report. But Port of Baltimore officials called the report "misleading and factually incorrect."
Even though young students have a decade or more before they enter the work force, efforts to improve education in science, engineering, technology and math – better known as STEM – are a top priority for business, higher education and political leaders.
Nearly one in four jobs in the Baltimore area requires skills in science, technology, engineering and math, a concentration that ranks among the top 10 in the country and brings wealth to the region, according a report released Monday.
As you move through the ordinary activities of your everyday life, you're leaving an electronic trail rich in data about your whereabouts, your interests and your relationships.
