She was buried in a small pink coffin. But before the casket closed Friday, mourners gathered at the Israel Baptist Church in East Baltimore to say goodbye to 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, whose hair, as in many of the pictures of her that flashed on the church's large screen, was in braids with little white bows. The toddler was struck by a stray bullet outside her home in Waverly a week before. Two others were also injured in the shooting. Police sources said Friday that a person of interest turned himself in for questioning in the shooting, though no charges have been filed.

The fire was one of Baltimore's worst: Five never got out of the East Baltimore rowhouse that spring morning in 2007, and three more died at area hospitals. Doctors say they were certain another would be added to the list: 3-year-old Amira Williams, who was burned over 95 percent of her body. "When you see a child burned as badly as she was, you think in the back of your mind that she will not survive, she's not expected to survive," said Rick Redett, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Johns Hopkins Children's Center who treated the girl.

Someone forgot to tell Patrick Beille that French guys are supposed to make wine, not beer. Hard cider would fit the French profile more than beer. But that's what the fellow does - he makes beer. The story of how Beille ended up in a brewery in the Waverly section of Baltimore starts in an idyll of the Old World, a little farm near a medieval village. I know: Farming is hard, especially as a start-up. But when you're young, daring, energetic and ambitious, then what this fellow had near Martel, in Midi-Pyrenees, sounds too awesome to leave.

Who knows how George Clooney won Stacy Keibler's heart, but 27 years ago, winning over young Stacy could be done with a Cabbage Patch and a Pound Puppy. On Christmas Day, Keibler shared with her Twitter followers a letter she wrote to Santa in 1985, when she was just a tot. Unassuming, even then, it didn't take much to make the Baltimore girl happy. She wanted Cabbage Patch twins, a Cabbage Patch bike and -- holy girl power -- a Princess of Power Castle. She also hoped Santa -- if he wasn't too busy -- could throw in a tape recorder and a pound puppy.

Solomon plays Marion, a panda on the verge of motherhood with the other last panda on earth. That male panda falls in love with a gay crocodile. "The play is very witty and fast paced but more challenging is the fact that I am a panda," said Solomon, 24, who lives in Mount Washington, where she also grew up. Learning panda movements?
