No luck for those hoping we'd seen the last of winter — the Baltimore region could get as much as 4 inches of snow by St. Patrick's Day. A mix of rain and snow is expected to begin falling around 7 p.m. Sunday, changing to all snow by mid-evening and continuing through early afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. The heaviest snow is forecast to fall after midnight through early Monday morning. The weather service has backed off a little in how much snow the metro area could see, downgrading its forecast from a winter storm watch packing up to five inches of white stuff to a winter weather advisory instead.

It's just three storefronts now, just half a block with a jewelry/pawn shop, a carryout and a barber shop. But to city officials, this half a block in the 400 block of W. Baltimore St. is a critical piece for revitalization, a bridge between the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus to the west and the Hippodrome Theatre and Starbucks to the east. And so the city is pressing the university to put a planned student bookstore, to be managed by Barnes & Noble, at the northeast corner of Baltimore and Paca streets, a move officials hope will inject more energy and visibility to an area undergoing a slow transformation.

GENUINE vaudeville in Baltimore has been dead since the early 1950s. (We're not talking here about burlesque, an offshoot of vaudeville, or the strip show, an offshoot of burlesque you can see tonight on The Block.)But now comes the National Museum of Live Entertainment Inc., a nonprofit group headed by Donald Hicken. He is talking about reopening the Hippodrome Theater, 12 N. Eutaw St., as a sort of "Smithsonian of live entertainment."There's still something magic that happens in live entertainment," he says, "and it's even more magic as we move away from it. We're going to keep the lamp lit."

Memories of the 1933 kidnapping in Baltimore of Albert Hendler, scion of the wealthy and prominent Hendler Creamery Co. family, have recently been revived in an exhibition of documents relating to the case at the Crime Museum in Washington. The nation was still jittery after the shocking nighttime kidnapping a year earlier of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr., son of aviartion hero Charles A. Lindbergh Sr. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, from the crib of his home near Hopewell, N.J. Hendler was the son of Lionel Manuel Hendler, the founder in 1905 of the Hendler Creamery Co. in the 1100 block of E. Baltimore St. Early in 1929, the elder Hendler, who was a philanthropist, had sold his company to Borden's for 79,000 shares of Borden's stock in a deal that was estimated at the time to be worth $6 million.

A little more than a month after postponing her Diamond World Tour concert in Baltimore, Rihanna delivered a stellar performance last night at 1st Mariner Arena. The rescheduled performance appeared to have little effect on her screaming fans. The pop princess pulled out all the stops, performing hit after hit. She started with a very dramatic opening scene, where she appeared to be kneeling in a black cloak. She launched into "Mother Mary," "Phresh off the Runway" and "Birthday Cake.

Gregory J. Alexander and Paul Kelsey Williams have combed through photo archives, and the result of their labors is "Lost Baltimore," which is a painful reminder of notable buildings that fell victim, for the most part, to fire or urban renewal. They also expand the "lost" concept to include sports teams, businesses, entertainment venues and even the weekly chore of scrubbing marble steps that has largely vanished. Alexander and Williams have included a cross-section of commercial structures as well as the once-grand estates of Guilford, Ulman, Bolton and the Wyman Villa, which were demolished to make way for new neighborhoods.
