Milan Dower stood next to her soon-to-be housemates with a look of bewilderment on her face. The sound of police sirens and nearly 100 screaming well-wishers meshed with the sight of a gigantic "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" tour bus driving down the walkway of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. She knew what that meant. Tears began streaming down her face. Dower, 12, and six other members of Boys Hope Girls Hope, an organization that provides at-risk youth with a group home-style setting, learned that they would receive a new home from the popular TV show.

Sure, it was a frenzied crowd and a dramatic finish, but I am referring to the unforgettable day that the Ravens and M&T Bank provided the scholars of Boys Hope Girls Hope of Baltimore. The team recognized BHGH Baltimore's service to the community with tickets to the Cowboys game, field passes prior to the game, T-shirts, thunder sticks and a stadium announcement (complete with appearance on the big screen)

David Yeager hunches over his geography homework as Sal Campo hunches over him. Every little distraction beckons, from the smells of supper to the other boys working at the dining-room table. But David, 12, knows the reward for finishing: a trip home for a birthday dinner with his mother. For David and five unrelated boys from different parts of town, a former convent in East Baltimore is a new kind of home -- a place where nightly chores are posted on the wall, homework time is mandatory and staff workers such as Campo, not parents, loom to make sure schoolwork is done.

'Fidelio' There's one more chance to catch Washington Opera's provocative production of Beethoven's one and only operatic work, Fidelio. As realized by the creative team of director Francesca Zambello, set designer Peter J. Davison and costume designer Anita Yavich, this tale of good and evil, repression and freedom has been updated to a vaguely contemporary time and place, with potent resonances of Nazi and Stalinist eras. The story line remains intact. To rescue political prisoner Florestan, his wife, Leonore, disguises herself as a man and gains access to his cell just in time to thwart his execution.
