For those of us who lived through the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Agnes in 1972, the recent recollections in The Aegis and The Record brought back memories of those days from June 19 through June 24, 1972. For me, I was 20 years old and living over the Cash Loan Building in Havre de Grace, but my parents lived on South Main Street in Port Deposit and they owned Winchester's Bar and Restaurant at that time. On that particular Friday night, my husband, then-fiance Rick, was bartending for my dad at Winchester's right before the mandatory town-wide evacuation.

There's a swirl of violence occurring around 78-year-old Florence Carter, and she says she doesn't know why. But for the first time in nearly five decades, she's being forced to contemplate moving out of her Northeast Baltimore home. "My daughters, they want me to get up and move," Carter said. "But I've been here so long. I've been here 46 years. At my age, I can't afford another house.

Don't worry, it won't be the type where they do bad covers of Adon Olam. Eutaw Place, housed at the bottom of Beth Am Synagogue, is catering to singer-songwriters. It's scheduled to open in late April. The idea came together last summer, said producer and booker Ellen Kahan Zager, 56. She likes coffee-house types like Jammin Java in Virginia and adult contemporary getaways like Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis. But didn't find any in Baltimore. Though she didn't have any experience in the business - "My husband and I just love music," the graphic designer says - she approached the rabbi of her new temple, Beth Am, with a proposal: "Would you consider a music venue in the lower level of the synagogue?"

Pingpong has long been considered a "basement sport," but for those who don't have the luxury of buying their own table, there are a few places to play and at least two clubs to join in the Baltimore area. The Baltimore Table Tennis Club, which has been in existence for 40 years, meets three times a week at Old Court Middle School. Typically, the club gets together Monday and Thursday nights from 8 to 10:30 and Saturday or Sunday mornings from 8 to noon. The club is run under the umbrella of the Liberty Road Rec Council.

First off, the game's table tennis; please don't call it by the antiquated name pingpong. And if you think it's easy to play just because you can beat your siblings in heated basement matches, you could be in for a rude awakening. "People just dink around for the most part," says Richard Lee, president of Rockville-based North American Table Tennis and head of the North American Teams Table Tennis Championships, which volleys its way into the Baltimore Convention Center this weekend.
