    A little guy with a big personality is slowly warming up to his care team after being rescued off the coast of Maryland. The National Aquarium in Baltimore welcomed a new grey seal pup into their care last month. Now they say the pup is starting to find his groove, thanks to his attentive caretakers. Louis Armstrong was rescued from Assateague Island National Seashore at the end of February. He was found stranded, dehydrated and with wounds to his face and left flipper. Louis also weighed only 35 pounds. Based on his conditions, the team at the aquarium’s Animal Care and Rescue Center estimated Louis was born sometime in January and had been separated from his mother. This put him at the mercy of predators and caused to become malnourished. However, since arriving at the center, Louis has been successfully treated with antibiotics and is slowly learning essential skills like independent swimming and finding food. All the while, the team said Louis is making some big waves in his rehabilitation process.  “Louis is a vocal and spirited pup...
    A Baltimore judge has ordered new testing for evidence in the case of a Maryland man whose murder conviction was chronicled in the podcast “Serial.” Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Melissa Phinn signed an order Monday mandating that Baltimore police send evidence in the case against Adnan Syed within 15 days to a California crime lab, news outlets reported. Last week, prosecutors and Syed’s defense both signed a motion seeking a retest of some items collected as evidence in the 1999 killing of 17-year-old Hae Min Lee using DNA technology that was not available for Syed’s trials. Syed is serving a life sentence after he was convicted in 2000 of strangling Lee and burying her body in a Baltimore park. Syed and Lee were high school classmates who had dated. In its debut 2014 season, the “Serial” podcast shined a spotlight on the case that led to renewed court proceedings. Authorities have maintained Lee struggled in a car with Syed before her death. In the latest motion, Syed’s attorney argued that in such circumstances, a killer would have to be in...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — When a tree falls in Baltimore, where does it go? The short answer is Camp Small.

    When Baltimore City school leaders were recently forced to address an embarrassing grade scandal at a local high school, they tried to save face by saying they identified, isolated, and fixed the issue by getting rid of a problematic principal and placing her deputy on administrative leave. But just days after their lopsided victory lap, a new Project Baltimore report revealed that the principal who was brought in to clean up the mess at Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Arts was herself the focus of a grade changing controversy at her former school, Joseph C. Briscoe Academy in west Baltimore. In a memo sent earlier this month, City Schools described Kamala Carnes, the new principal of Augusta Fells, as “experienced and transformational." But a former Briscoe student claimed, "I can say some people who graduated shouldn't have graduated." Project Baltimore reviewed Briscoe student transcripts that revealed at least one graduate was absent or late 110 days during his senior year. Records show he failed science with a 59, but his transcript shows he got a D- and...

    With youthful energy and hopeful rhetoric, Baltimore’s newly elected mayor will assume office Tuesday, ushering in a new generation of leadership trying to move the city beyond what many say has been decades of stagnation and backsliding. But Democrat Brandon Scott, 36, is starting his new job at a historically tough time. The city has recorded more than 300 homicides for the sixth year in a row, and its population, businesses and tax revenues have not been spared by the coronavirus pandemic. Now, Scott must find a way to balance the public health emergency’s long-lasting effects and his campaign promises of reducing crime, investing in schools, streamlining City Hall and creating opportunities for young people. In a city where Democrats outnumber Republicans 10-1, Scott comfortably won the general election. Yet he will have to work to restore trust in the mayor’s office — the last elected mayor is sitting in prison for public corruption. “While I’m proud, energized and ready to lead this city … I’m not coming into this with rose-colored glasses,” Scott told The Associated Press. “This is...
