A total of 13,338 people rode MARC trains along the Penn Line this weekend, setting a record for the new service as many made their way to Washington for cherry blossom celebrations. That's more than triple the number — 4,085 — who rode the service in its first weekend of operations, in December. Weekend service began with $46 million in funding put toward the state transportation department's six-year budget and raised through an increase in the state's new gas tax, after years of cost being cited as an obstacle to the expansion.

Tourists never come to see the cherry blossoms in West Baltimore, in the heart of what local residents warmly refer to as "the hood. " But they could, as far as Marvin "Doc" Cheatham is concerned. "We could have people ride through, neighbors selling hot dogs and hamburgers, saying, 'You don't got to go to Washington for cherry blossoms!'" Cheatham said this weekend from his front steps in the 1600 block of Appleton St. The block has about 40 occupied homes, 11 boarded-up vacants, and about a dozen cherry trees - planted by the city in the 1970s, as Cheatham recalls.

BURLINGTON, N.J. - Nikki Reed knew she had to move. Though she had lived her entire life in Mobile, Ala., Reed watched her oldest son, Jacoby, go from being a promising high school basketball player to being sent away to state prison at age 17 for robbery. Reed didn't want her younger son, Trayvon, to get caught up in the culture of their Down the Bay neighborhood. That decision to move, first to Montgomery, Ala., for three years before settling a little more than two years ago outside Atlanta in Snellville, Ga., helped put Trayvon Reed on a path that will land him at the University of Maryland this summer.
