Hyunhwa Thomas Yu and Yuko Naululani Yu hail from different countries in Asia, but the world of ballroom dance brought them together in America. About six years ago, while each was seeking a dance partner, the two discovered one another and quickly formed an artistic connection. Before long, however, the pair would waltz, tango and quick-step their way toward love, then marriage. "We share something in common that's close to our hearts," says Tom, 54, a South Korean emigre whose family arrived in Champaign, Ill., when he was a teen.

"A journey," the old saying goes, "should start with a first step," not a thunderstorm over New Jersey. All the flights from Washington, D.C. to Newark (where I would connect with my Pakistan bound flight) were cancelled. I waited on six different lines for more than 5 hours. At the end of line number 7, I was asked to pay $739 to get a seat on the next available flight (departing from a different airport and two days later). To add to the misery, the employees of United Airlines somehow lost my baggage, despite the flight never departing.

The Crab Shanty, a restaurant along U.S. 40 in Ellicott City, serves some of the best seafood in Howard County.It's a shame I won't be able to go there again and enjoy a meal.My last visit was for lunch last Sunday. What began as a classic disagreement about the quality of service quickly disintegrated into the kind of subtle, racist incident that I find abominable, especially in the community I call home.I arrived at the restaurant 20 minutes before its 2 p.m. opening and approached the hostess, who suggested I sit in the waiting area.

The cheering seemed to arrive from some faraway place, from an abandoned baseball field on 33rd Street, or from a moment in the spring of 1982, or from 13 summers ago when Cal Ripken had all of his potential in front of him but no one ever imagined a moment such as last night.Under a darkening South Baltimore sky, the big crowd's roar built and built until it echoed onto Eutaw Place, out where the Babe Ruth statue stands, until the Babe himself must have wondered, "What's all that noise? I never heard the likes of it since me and Lou were playing up in the Bronx."

WE BID farewell to Cal Ripken as the embodiment of the American Dream and the last carrier of a vanishing culture. We watched him round the bases and shake his daddy's hand. We saw him flip the double-play grounder to his brother Bill. We saw him wave to his mom the night he caught the ghost of Lou Gehrig, and kiss his wife and little kids as they sat behind home plate. Who hasn't drifted to sleep dreaming such dreams? He is the hometown boy who extended the backyard whiffle ball field to the front porch stadium, where each night he heard his own neighbors cheer him on. Who hasn't had a schoolyard catch without picturing such heaven on earth?

Parked drivers waiting at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport for calls from just-landed loved ones will have to do so from a new location starting April 1. The airport's so-called "cell phone lot" will move from one side of Terminal Road to the other, adjacent to the airport's daily parking garage, officials said Thursday. The move will double the number of parking spots in the free waiting area from 50 to 100. It will also add additional spaces to the airport's "express" parking lot, which offers luggage assistance and "carside-to-curbside" shuttle services.

In the first live wrestling show on the WWE Network, a fantastic show from NXT was marred by technical issues. The Network has kicked off to mixed results so far. The initial demand (some estimates had between 250,000-350,000 people signing up on the first day) had overwhelmed MLB Advanced Media and caused issues for the first 48 hours of the launch. However, by Wednesday afternoon it seemed like most of the issues had been fixed, and people were immensely enjoying the product. However, on Thursday night, during the NXT: ArRIVAL show, the technical difficulties cropped up again.

It's no secret that for the past eight months the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners had been conducting a robust search for the system's next CEO. With the board's selection of Gregory Thornton to take the helm, I believe the next CEO has been carefully chosen ( "New Baltimore schools chief navigated complex terrain in Milwaukee," Feb. 23). I am so honored to have been a member of the board at such a pivotal moment. I witnessed the careful decisions that were made to put the most suitable person in the leadership role responsible for 85,000 students.

The curtain-raising scene of Jesus appearing "in ancient upstate New York" is the first little clue that "The Book of Mormon" is not your average Broadway musical. By the time the show ends, every politically incorrect button has been pushed, every doorbell rung. With true missionary zeal, the creators of this hugely popular work, which reaches Baltimore on Tuesday, satirize not just one religion, but all of them. Various peoples, practices and conditions are heartily targeted in the process, too. But when all is said, sung and stung, "Book of Mormon" is really a big, old-fashioned musical, one with the same basic structure that served Rodgers and Hammerstein so well.

When the bill arrived from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, I expected to open it and see that I owed $250 by March 15. Instead it was for $286. That's $36 more than Maryland health exchange website showed my insurance plan would cost. This was the latest snafu in my quest to buy health insurance through the state's troubled online exchange, which has been beset for months by technical problems. The enrollment process took me five hours and 22 minutes and included two calls to the exchange's call center, seven attempts to enter my personal information, two computers and two web browsers.

Christopher Morgan squats on the ground behind the Middlesex Shopping Center in Essex. His eyes are red-rimmed, owing to several sleepless nights. People come and go. They leave flowers and stuffed animals. Morgan stays. He says the spirit of the children holds him here.The children were killed in a station wagon explosion last week. The cops say Mark Alen Clark, furious that his wife, Betty, left him and wouldn't come back, blew up the station wagon (so badly damaged that police initially reported it was a minivan)

Moments before the verdict was read, NBC anchorman Tom Brokaw told viewers in a hushed voice, "There is nothing we can say that would add to the suspense or drama of this moment."Then, of course, after only a momentary pause, Brokaw went right on talking, adding yet a few more drops of prattle to an 18-hour tidal wave of television talk that finally washed ashore yesterday with the not-guilty verdict for O.J.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold has been at this place before, looking forward to putting his injury-plagued past behind him. The past two years, Reimold has played in just 56 games. Each of those seasons ended with major neck surgery. Hindered by a string of tough luck, Reimold hasn't played in more than 87 games since his rookie year of 2009. “I feel pretty good,” Reimold said Wednesday. “I feel pretty healthy. It's just a matter of getting into baseball shape and start playing again.

Can you believe it? Just when we need it most, there may be a shortage of Velveeta. The marigold-colored cheese product that melts so smoothly may be missing from your grocer's shelves - it doesn't require refrigeration - just as the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl loom. Football fans are facing a dip crisis. An enterprising reporter for Advertising Age magazine discovered the possibility of a Velveeta shortage when customers noticed there wasn't any to be had in a couple of East Coast grocery stores.
