When the violence in Syria began spinning out of control last year, the Obama administration made the unusual decision to bring its ambassador to the troubled country home. And for Ambassador Robert Ford, coming home has long meant returning to Baltimore. The 54-year-old veteran diplomat, who won worldwide acclaim for making a dramatic trip last summer to meet with Syrian protesters, has for years chosen to live in Baltimore when stateside. He has embraced the city's culture and character, which fit his personality far better than Washington ever could.

B in Bolton Hill has a new executive chef. Chris Clune came on board March 1 but took over the kitchen for real on March 21. For now, Clune will be happily executing the menu put in place by departing executive chef Jamie Forsythe, who stayed around for the transition. But come May, when the spring bounty really arrives, diners will be start to see more of Clune's personality. Clune grew up in the business — his mother owned restaurants in Oxford and Barnegat Light, N.J. Asked to describe his cooking philosophy, he invokes the French chef Joel Robuchon.

The gunman held a small black revolver to the back of the man's head and demanded, "Give me what you got," according to the police report. He forced the victim to the pavement at Clement and Covington streets in South Baltimore, and took a wallet and cell phone. A second man tried to yank rings from the fingers of the victim's wife. When they wouldn't budge, he told her, "This ain't a joke," and ordered her to remove her jewelry, according to police. As the assailants pedaled away on bicycles with a 1.7 karat diamond ring and a white gold wedding band worth a total of $22,300, the couple had to bang on Clement Street doors to summon help.

Bolton Hill community leaders pleaded with Baltimore zoning officials Tuesday to prevent a fraternal lodge from holding late-night parties, saying that the raucous gatherings are destroying the character of the neighborhood. City Councilman William H. Cole IV, who represents the area, clutched a sheaf of fliers for Hiram Grand Lodge events that featured scantily clad women, promises of "top shelf liquor" and names such as "Love & Lust Pre-Valentine's Day event. " "We're asking you to end these activities because it's killing a great neighborhood," said Cole.

I read with interest Eileen Pollock's essay about retiring to Baltimore ("Why I'm thinking about retiring to Baltimore," Feb. 17). My hat's off to her for espousing Baltimore's strengths instead of the usual (and frankly, tiresome) complaint about the city's high taxes. Look at what downtown Baltimore alone has to offer: Four colleges and universities, easy proximity via MARC train to the District of Columbia, museums, symphony, wonderful restaurants, two major sports stadiums, four Circulator bus routes providing free transportation (see if you can find that in Manhattan)

In the old Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church in Bolton Hill, the congregation on Sunday gave a prayer of thanks for what the Rev. Andrew Foster Connors described as "the new light of hope arising from the Maryland State House. " Barely two miles down the road in the Greater Harvest Baptist Church, where members demonstrate their devotion by swaying in place and calling out their approval to their pastor's words, the Rev. Rev. Errol Gilliard Sr. issued a call to arms. "They took your tax dollars to push an immoral bill," Gilliard preached into his microphone, holding a white handkerchief by his side.

A new recycling campaign at the University of Baltimore is urging residents to vote with their trash. University officials are inviting Baltimoreans to answer questions about the city by placing their recycled trash in one of four see-through bins on campus. The first question: "Who is Baltimore's greatest team sports icon?" The possible answers, each with his own bin, are former Baltimore Orioles Brooks Robinson and Cal Ripken Jr. , Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis and former Baltimore Colt Johnny Unitas . The campaign, "Talking Trash: UB Votes to Recycle," is part of a larger effort by the midtown institution to help preserve the environment by reducing energy, promoting public transportation, using sustainable building techniques, and pursuing other "green" initiatives.
