Baltimore children's book author Elisabeth Dahl used to walk two or three miles just so she could hang out at the Library of Congress, reveling in the Paris Opera House style-architecture, the 23-karat gold-plated dome and the breathtakingly extensive archives that includes the personal papers of Thomas Jefferson. Dahl married a librarian who works now at Towson University, and the couple celebrated their wedding in the Enoch Pratt Free Library . So 45-year-old writer couldn't be more thrilled that her first published book, a children's novel called "Genie Wishes," was chosen to represent the State of Maryland at the 14 t h annual Library of Congress National Book Festival on Saturday.

THE CALVERT SCHOOL, a private primary school in North Baltimore, has announced a plan to substantially expand its facilities and the grades it offers. That the Calvert School wishes to develop a middle-school program is not a problem. In fact, my goal is not to stop the Calvert School from expanding, but to put in place a fair and open process that balances the interests of schools and neighborhoods. If, at the end of the process, we strike such a balance, the Calvert School should be permitted to proceed.

The Calvert School's plan to demolish a North Baltimore apartment complex to expand its campus moved to the City Council last night after the planning commission deadlocked on a key zoning bill. The 4-4 vote, a highly unusual result, means that the measure goes to the council's Land Use Committee without a recommendation from the commission. "I can't remember a time there was a tie like this," said 5th District Councilwoman Rochelle "Rikki" Spector, a commission member and a 24-year council veteran.

Sunday, July 7, is the 30th anniversary for Morning Edition Cafe in Butchers Hill. It's also its last day. After three decades, Brian Beaven is closing up his Vermont-style cafe, where the specialty was always breakfast, even in the early years when it was also served dinner. When it opened in 1983, Morning Edition was one of the city's first restaurants to specialize in brunch, and few Baltimoreans back then were familiar with the Butchers Hill neighborhood, much less thought of it as a dining destination.
