Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is right. We will not succeed in growing Baltimore's future by "thinking small" but by building "projects that will sustain Baltimore well into the future" (" Moving Baltimore Forward ," Aug. 29). The mayor proposes that designing a great transit system will be one of the cornerstones of a sustainable future for the city. We agree. There is also another cornerstone critical to the vibrancy, the life and the perpetuity of Baltimore and all great cities: its cultural "bones" - the richly layered accumulation of historical experience, knowledge and creative accomplishment that together form the unique identity, the persona, of a place.

It's Baltimore's working-man's country club, a golf course located between an interstate highway, a railroad track and the Montgomery Ward & Co. warehouse.The setting doesn't suggest a prestige address or a neighborhood swirling in affluence. Commuters leaving the city for the suburbs look down on it from an elevated expressway and see this island of green that breaks up the monotony of old buildings, truck terminals and industrial enterprises.That's Carroll Park, a nine-hole golf course since 1924, a place where blacks, before integration, were first permitted to play, but only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The police commissioner clenched his fists and boogied. The fire chief smiled broadly and stepped to the music. With about 60 people looking on, the city's top public safety officials joined in a quick line dance in Carroll Park, in a bid to connect with a community they believe is coming together to fight crime. It was their third stop on a tour of the city for the National Night Out, an annual crime-prevention effort. Mayor Sheila Dixon took the stage about 7:30 p.m. and proclaimed that she was having "a great time."

Paul Manna got his start booking wedding bands for $50 a week plus 15 percent to 20 percent commission. It was a way into music, which he knew he wanted, but it wasn't quite right. "My heart wasn't in booking wedding bands," said Manna, who, at 47, still remembers vividly the thrill of his first concert when he was 15 — Ted Nugent at the Civic Center in Baltimore. Since he started 24-7 Entertainment in 1997, he's been working to provide that excitement for audiences, booking about 100 shows a year in the Baltimore area.

The sixth season of the Charm City Youth Lacrosse League begins March 29 at Carroll Park, and its continued success over the years is a great reminder of Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate and current Attorney General Doug Gansler's passionate commitment to Baltimore City youth. In 2009, Mr. Gansler founded the league to provide a mix of mentoring, lacrosse skills training and league play to underserved Baltimore City youth at no cost. The league promotes positive social interaction, builds leadership skills and enables participants to forge relationships with leaders from the Baltimore business and civic communities, who speak at league practices.

Jimmy Weaver and his baggy-pants buddies skateboard every free second they get and sport scars on their hands to prove it. For them, there's nothing worse than adults screaming at them to get off the Pigtown corner they've claimed as their sacred skate zone for the past few years. Skateboarding on James and Ostend streets isn't exactly safe, but they have no choice: Baltimore has no skate parks. Yet. City officials said this week that they will include a skate park the size of a basketball court in their master plan for Carroll Park, Southwest Baltimore's 117-acre green space, which will soon get a face lift.

The helmets looked a little too big, like those bobble-headed dolls people used to have in their cars. On Saturday morning in a Southwest Baltimore park, a few of the boys charging around a field wielding lacrosse sticks looked like pros, expertly scooping balls and netting them with panache. Others needed, well, remedial training. "It takes a long time to learn," said Drequan Stanley, who, at 11 years old, was one of the more accomplished players and was helping some of those less adept.

A friend gave me some honest advice: Summer starts to go by more quickly after the Fourth of July celebration. I've learned this to be true, and now I've got to get moving on a lot of stuff I plan to accomplish before Labor Day — or maybe Oct. 1. Or perhaps Thanksgiving. My plans are fluid, and if I don't achieve them all, at least I've set down a list. I've never been to Chincoteague, Va., or Assateague Island, despite spending weeks each summer in nearby Delaware. I've never been south of Salisbury, and I want to make it to Princess Anne and Pocomoke City, as well as the Eastern Shore towns of Virginia.
