As a Messenger columnist, this time of year can be rough to write about. The post-New Years lull, as many of us are recovering from our Christmas and New Year's Eve festivities, can, traditionally, leave a gap in the calendar. But instead of taking some down time, I think we should keep the ball rolling in 2014. After all, I'm sure there's a calendar somewhere that will be misinterpreted to say that 2014 will be the final year of life on Earth as we know it. (Whatever happened to that Mayan calendar 2012 prediction anyway?

Havre de Grace. -- In theory, the recent sale of Baltimore Magazine to an odd collection of deep-pockets investors could be good news for readers. In publishing, the shake-ups that go with a change of ownership are often stimulating -- when they're not disasters.The last shake-up at Baltimore Magazine was a good one. When Annapolis publisher Phil Merrill bought the monthly from the Chamber of Commerce 16 years ago, it was a pretty dowdy old thing. Then Mr. Merrill made Stan Heuisler the editor and turned him loose, and soon there was steady and sometimes spectacular progress.

Between August and September, we enter into what some of us refer to as "Best Ofs" award season.  It's always interesting to me to see what publications like Baltimore Magazine and Baltimore City Paper regard as the best of the city. While I might not always agree with all of their choices, they always manage to highlight new places for me to check out.  It also fills me with pride to see so many Hampden-area businesses so well-represented in these awards.  Baltimore Magazine's Best Of issue has just hit the stands.
