I want to add a dimension about Charlie Lamb that did not appear in Jacques Kelly 's obituary ( "Charles E. Lamb, noted architect," Jan 9). In addition to being a founder of the architectural firm RTKL, he was a founder and benefactor of the non-profit Neighborhood Design Center. A group of young architects in Baltimore gave birth to the NDC in 1968 in the wake of the riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Since 1968, NDC has provided pro-bono design and planning services to more than 1,800 community initiatives that have helped neighborhoods reclaim vacant lots and abandoned structures, create community master plans that revitalized urban areas and beautify their neighborhoods.

What a wonderful, warm story you published about Michael Rose nband ("Former Wall Street success finds new path reviving Carver baseball," May 11) He is a hero to all, giving up a successful job at age 40 to give back to these desiring young people. Now we should hope that our sports figures and big business owners will give back to Mr. Rosenband and his cause! We need more people like him to give our young citizens a chance in this world.

A statue intended to honor the man whose motto is "Do It Now" isn't likely to be done anytime soon. Plans to erect a 9-foot-tall sculpture of William Donald Schaefer, the former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor, on the Inner Harbor promenade have apparently collapsed - the result of a volatile combination of a colorful subject, a strong-willed benefactor and a new process for reviewing proposals for public art on city-owned land. The man who proposed the sculpture for a prominent Inner Harbor parcel and offered to underwrite it as a tribute to Schaefer, First Mariner Bancorp Chairman and Chief Executive Edwin F. Hale Sr., has decided not to pursue it any longer.

The Ehrlich boys sure love their summer Slurpees. Even the 50-something Ehrlich kid is not averse to indulging on the way home from those hot summer football practices. (Mom does not share our male addiction but usually lets us slide in the interest of family unity.) That the Ehrlich Slurpee bonding experience takes place in Annapolis and not New York City is a good thing, as the Big Apple now deals with the latest assault on individual freedom from Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The successor to the wildly successful Rudy Giuliani is a billionaire Democrat-turned-Republican-turned-independent.

Colin Powell, focused national attention on the importance of voluntary charitable efforts.Any reader expecting (as this one did) the chronicles of philanthropy to be socially uplifting but terminally tedious is in for a pleasant surprise: The new issue is chockablock with timely and intriguing articles.

Anne Arundel County's youth soccer Blackhawks have played this season with Trooper Shaft S. Hunter's memory firmly in mind. Hunter, who was killed in an on-duty crash this spring, was a major benefactor of the team. His son, Deion, is a midfielder for the Blackhawks, and Hunter regularly worked extra shifts to help pay for players who could not afford team fees and travel costs. "Those are sort of like his sons," his wife, Rose Hunter, said. The Blackhawks, ages 13-14, won their regional championship this year and earned a second-straight bid to the US Club Soccer national finals.

A 41-year-old Pikesville woman was ordered Wednesday to stand trial March 10 on charges that she obtained $10,000 from Mike Flynn, the former Ravens player, by fraudulently claiming that she was dying of cancer. It is the second such case to be tried in Baltimore County in a year. Lisa Hoppenstein Cohen, a mother of two and the wife of a chiropractor, told friends and acquaintances — including Flynn and his wife, Mary — that she had terminal cancer and needed money to pay for medical treatment, according to prosecutors.
