City man pleads guilty in 2007 fatal shooting A Baltimore man has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in a fatal shooting last year, according to the Baltimore state's attorney's office. Marcus L. Pettiford, 22, of the 2000 block of E. 31st St. was sentenced Monday to 50 years in prison, with all but 15 years suspended, and five years' probation. Pettiford approached Tyrone Willie Bonner, 29, in the 1700 block of E. 30th St. about midnight June 5, 2007. The two argued, and Pettiford shot Bonner five times, prosecutors say. Terrell Bridget, 18, of the 1900 block of E. 31st St. was originally arrested as a co-defendant in Bonner's killing.

When Elliot and Janell Bonner bought the white house overlooking a corner in Mount Washington, they knew they could make it suit them perfectly, adding modern amenities and overhauling the major systems of the 1910 structure. They replaced most windows with energy-efficient ones, but they left such traditional charms as leaded glass windows and five-panel wood doors. They moved and removed walls. They installed new plumbing and redid bathrooms. They put in a new electrical system and included surround sound in the new media room.

OCEAN CITY --For decades, acclaimed black musicians and entertainers - Count Basie, Duke Ellington, a young James Brown - rubbed shoulders with less famous tenants in the brown-shingled boarding house known as Henry's Colored Hotel. There was hardly anywhere else they were allowed to stay.... Now, "the Henry" is getting its due, named yesterday by a group of dignitaries, black and white, as one of four African-American heritage landmarks on the Lower Eastern Shore. There's hope that with such recognition, the old hotel, which is in need of a paint job and other repairs, can be revived as a bed-and-breakfast and museum.
