JAMES GASHEL talks about newspapers with a passion. "Newspapers are probably the most important public channel of communicating ideas in a free society," he proclaims. Mr. Gashel, who is blind, first got access to daily newspapers four years ago through a telephone service operated by the Baltimore-based National Federation of the Blind. "I couldn't read a newspaper until I was 50 years old," he explains. Thanks to $4 million in congressional funding, the Newsline telephone service will soon be available to 11 million blind and sight-impaired Americans, regardless of location.

Cover Girl has landed in the unflattering spotlight of the NFL domestic abuse scandal as activists pressuring sponsors to boycott the league circulate a doctored ad of a female football fan with a black eye. Hunt Valley-based Cover Girl, the official beauty sponsor of the NFL, is behind the "Get Your Game Face On" ad campaign featuring models wearing the jerseys and makeup colors of each of the league's 32 teams. That includes the Baltimore Ravens, where Ray Rice was a running back until his $35 million contract was terminated last week after a video surfaced that showed him knocking his fiancee unconscious in an elevator.

In a spacious, light-filled office high above the Inner Harbor, Ed Callahan leans back in a plastic chair, flips a fuzz-covered rubber ball from one hand to the other, and grins like a schoolboy. He has reason to feel mischievous. It's not just that the atmosphere here at Planit Agency, the Baltimore advertising firm he co-founded 14 years ago, is fun, though given the pool table in the corner, the pulsing plasma TVs along the walls and the sprightly orange color scheme throughout the place, it qualifies as that.

As principal of a small Southeast Baltimore school, Anthony Ruby has guided an array of first-year teachers, from the stars who seem to have an innate sense of how to handle a class to those who were so ineffective he declined to renew their contracts. When teachers aren't effective, he said, "it is not fair to our kids," many of whom are low-income and immigrant. Hundreds of teachers are hired each year to fill vacancies in Baltimore, and the majority will be newcomers to the profession.

That trend was evident in the All-Stars' matchup against a team of Baltimore locals hoping to someday earn the same fame as their Ball Up opponents.

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, headquartered in Baltimore and celebrating its 75th anniversary with a gala tonight, has at least part of the solution to the problem of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S. border with Mexico - and it's not sending them back where they came from. LIRS thinks just the opposite should occur: a full embrace of the problem by the government and faith-based organizations, and foster homes for the children who have no relatives here. So officials at the national headquarters near Baltimore's Inner Harbor have been asking Lutheran families (and anyone else with a heart and a spare room)

He'd been leader of a New Jersey social justice organization since 2008, making inroads on housing and employment issues, when Cornell Brooks, a soft-spoken lawyer and minister, got an opportunity he didn't see coming. The NAACP, a national organization based in Northwest Baltimore, was looking for a new president. A search committee wanted to talk. He had to decide whether to seek the job as successor to the charming, sometimes controversial Ben Jealous.  A friend remembers telling the 53-year-old Brooks that it might be hard to handle the competing factions within the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, which has a famously unwieldy 64-person board, hundreds of local branches and periodic financial problems.
