Apparently, when your daughter gets engaged you have to paint your house, even if you aren't holding the wedding there. I am not sure why, but the minute the ring was on her finger, I hired a painter. And the first place he tackled was the area of our basement where we keep all our stuff. And there was a lot of stuff back there. I know, because all of it had to be moved out of his way. Now the paint is dry and it is time to move it back and I am determined to do what I didn't have to do when all that stuff was behind closed doors.

Paul W. "Scottie" Scott, a retired Maryland Transit Administration bus driver who was an ardent collector of Motown music and artifacts that earned him the sobriquet of "Mr. Motown," died Friday of bladder cancer at Good Samaritan Hospital. He was 78. Born to working-class parents in Baltimore, Paul Wesley Scott was raised in East Baltimore, where he graduated in 1953 from Dunbar High School. He joined the Navy in the mid-1950s, serving as a steward. "During his brief leaves, he loved to party to the sounds of Etta James, Ray Charles, Clyde McPhatter, Sam Cooke, the Coasters, Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Elvis, Chuck Berry, Billie Holiday, the Temptations, and the list goes on and on," said Sherrell Claiborne, a granddaughter, who lives in Owings Mills.

James L. Akers Jr., a retired financial analyst and businessman who collected and restored vintage arcade machines, died Wednesday of kidney cancer at his Ellicott City home. He was 73. The son of a dentist and a homemaker, James Lee Akers Jr. was born in Baltimore and raised on Regester Avenue in Stoneleigh. Herbert W. Dorsey grew up a few doors away, and they remained lifelong friends. "It was a neighborhood of boys, and we naturally gravitated to his home because Jim had a pool table," said Mr. Dorsey, a retired Public Health Service officer who lives in Bethesda.

It is Friday night, and the regulars are starting to arrive at Steve and Linda Migliore's house in Abingdon. Paul Abbott, the bass player, brings a bottle of pickle-flavored vodka. It is dreadful stuff, but there isn't another bottle like it in the Migliores' well-stocked - and exotic - bar, and that's the point. There is a friendly competition to see who can contribute the strangest booze. "I saw it on the shelf, and I knew that had to be the one," said his wife, Jennifer Abbott, who will take the microphone and sing vocals soon.

"Is there any way out other than the main stairs?" I asked. My husband, our real-estate agent, the seller's agent and I were standing in the finished basement of a home in Owings Mills. It was a vast space: a nice bathroom, a media room, a room big enough to waltz in and another room with hidden panels in the walls for stashing who knows what. There was even a fireplace at the bottom of the stairs, creating a spa-like atmosphere. But no, the selling agent said that there was just the one staircase, noting that some people like having only one way into the basement because exterior doors attract thieves.

Twitter and web radio carried a new kind of prime-time crime drama in Baltimore Saturday when a Waverly man refused to allow police to serve a warrant and then broadcast the ensuing standoff after a S.W.A.T. team arrived. He was on the air live Saturday night for more than 5 hours, much of it spent talking to a police negotiator before surrendering peacefully. Another day and night in the brave, new world of social media… Frank James MacArthur, a cabdriver, who tweets, blogs and broadcasts on the Internet as The Baltimore Spectator, left the airwaves just before 11 p.m. saying, “All right, it's 10:57.
