Faculty and students at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School preparing to hear Visa CEO Charles W. Scharf speak at their graduation ceremony on Wednesday should be aware of his company's unsavory partnership with the National Rifle Association (NRA). Credit card giant Visa's affiliate program helps organizations market financial products to their members. Purchases made with the NRA Visa Card, however, also fund "legislative action in support of … Second Amendment rights. " In practice, this means Visa is helping to pay for lobbying against common-sense policies like background checks on gun buyers and for dangerous legislation that would force colleges and universities to allow gun on campus against their will.

A dozen neighborhood volunteers will spend their Presidents Day turning around a former city recreation center that new sponsors envision reborn as an education and community center. After 32 years, the Barclay Recreation Center shut down in August, a victim of budget cuts in the city's Department of Recreation and Parks. Neighborhood advocates believe the 7,500-square-foot facility, constructed immediately adjacent to the Barclay Elementary/Middle School in the 300 block of E. 29th Street, can find a new life on its own. They picture a location where both students and residents can have a town hall meeting, a safe after-school spot or a place to hold a birthday party or take a yoga class.

Royal Farms quietly grew over decades into one of Baltimore's most ubiquitous businesses, but last week the convenience store chain took a bigger stage. On Wednesday, the city approved a $1.25 million, five-year agreement for Royal Farms to serve as title sponsor for the Baltimore Arena, to be known starting Nov. 1 as Royal Farms Arena. The move, which comes in the midst of accelerated expansion and after years of careful branding, is a statement of bigger ambitions that simultaneously ties the retailer, headquartered in offices above one of its stores on The Avenue in Hampden, more closely to its local customers, industry watchers said "By having an arena that carries your name, you're saying, 'Not only are we the corner store, but we're the corner store in your community,' " said Jeff Lenard, vice president of strategic industry initiatives for the National Association of Convenience Stores.
