Snodgrass is a nationally known expert on green roofs, an emerging technology in the United States that replaces hot asphalt with cool plants. "I have to do so much of my own research," said Snodgrass, 50, who is growing the plants for a 30,000-square-foot roof at Montgomery Park, a $75 million redevelopment project in Southwest Baltimore.

ABERDEEN -- In the 1680s, the frontiersman and tobacco merchants of the northern Chesapeake Bay gathered to trade and socialize at a tiny tobacco port on the Bush River. They called it Baltimore Town, the 17th-century seat of Baltimore County's court.Archaeologists digging gingerly amid unexploded munitions at the Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground say they have found traces of that first Baltimore, a town that vanished decades before the 1729 founding of a new Baltimore, 20 miles to the south on the Patapsco River.
