The run of the city's last adult movie theater finished last month and the 672-seat venue in Upper Fells Point is now available for rent. The Apex, which showed pornographic films in the building for more than four decades, stopped screenings Nov. 31, said Sukhvir Singh, who bought the South Broadway theater at auction in October for $295,000. Singh, who said he owns about 10 properties in the city, said he has no immediate plans to renovate or sell the property. He liked its location and had hoped to collect money by renting it, he said.

Ann and Dominic Wiker loved life in their Federal Hill home. As a professional couple in their 30s, the neighborhood was ideal - they could walk to most attractions, shops and restaurants. It seemed there was always something fun going on outside their door. Then parenthood happened, and with it came the idea of moving to the suburbs. They would move, but they wouldn't leave Federal Hill. Nine years later, the Wikers - mom, dad, 9-year old Alex and 7-year old Tommy - have, to their delight, become a poster family for raising children in an urban environment.

Lawyers for Howard County and the Pack Shack took their long-running debate over the constitutionality of the county's adult business ordinance before the state's highest court yesterday for a judicial review with potential to affect similar laws elsewhere. In oral arguments before the Court of Appeals yesterday, lawyers for the Ellicott City business, who have been sparring with county officials for more than four years, said the 1997 law violates the Pack Shack owners' First Amendment rights and was created to drive it and a second adult store in the county out of business.

The Linwood Boutique is a thrift store with a twist. Like most such stores, the historic Ellicott City shop sells used clothing, furniture, books and other donated items. But it uses the profits to provide employment and job-training skills to an often-neglected population that badly needs them: men and women with autism. The boutique is operated by the Linwood Center, an Ellicott City school for the autistic. Opened six years ago, the boutique is staffed by people with autism, a brain disorder that affects the normal development of social and communication skills.

State health officials reported Thursday they have confirmed the first case of West Nile Virus in Maryland for the year. The infected adult lives in the suburbs of Washington. The virus has also been detected in a Washington-area horse, and in special mosquito traps placed in Harford, Montgomery, Prince George's and Talbot counties. Officials at the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said the human case was not unexpected - there were 16 reported cases last year. But they reminded people to take precautions by avoiding areas where mosquitoes are prevalent, covering their skin with clothes and hats, using insect repellent, and if possible, avoiding outdoor activities during mosquitoes' most active times at dusk and dawn.

Physicians, public health officials and mental health advocates hope the death of Robin Williams will bring new attention to suicide, the little-discussed and less-understood phenomenon that now ranks among the top 10 causes of death in the United States. The public might consider it a concern chiefly for teens and the elderly. But adults ages 45 to 64 - the Academy Award-winning actor was 63 - now account for the largest number of suicides and have the fastest-growing suicide rate.

Wednesday, Circuit Judge Timothy McCrone granted the defense's request so Arnold can be evaluated to determine whether she is competent to stand trial, according to a spokesman for the state's attorney's office.

Erica Green 's recent article concerning the progressive pedagogy on tap at the Arts & Ideas Sudbury School details deeply troubling trends in education today ( "Mount Washington school redefines education," Aug. 7). Instead of insisting on the educator's authority in the classroom, school leaders misguidedly attempt to "democratize" the learning process. Their radical reforms (student proposed curricula, hiring decisions decided on by a student vote, etc.) do anything but. The tyranny of the child majority, comprised of young children still in the process of becoming, is far more oppressive than the command of any adult presence.

A Howard County judge sent Morgan Lane Arnold back to jail from a juvenile facility Monday, ruling that the 16-year-old should be tried as an adult on charges she plotted with her boyfriend to kill her father. Circuit Judge William Tucker told a full courtroom that Arnold, accused of helping plan the May 2013 killing of her father, well-known businessman and blogger Dennis Lane, needs intensive mental health treatment. There's no guarantee she would get it in the five years she might spend in the juvenile system if found guilty, Tucker said.

"If we call a cow's tail a leg," President Abraham Lincoln once asked members of his Cabinet, "how many legs would a cow have?""Five," the cognitively challenged Cabinet members answered."A cow only has four legs," our nation's most sagacious chief executive reminded his advisers, "no matter what we call its tail."A child is still a child, Honest Abe would probably remind us in 1999, no matter how the state of Michigan tries to make him an adult.Several weeks ago, 13-year-old Nathaniel Abraham was tried as an adult and found guilty of second-degree murder for fatally shooting a man when he was 11. After the conviction, there was much crowing and bragging among conservatives about how Michigan had gotten tough with a 13-year-old.
