In the middle of the infield at Preakness 2012, there are six long horizontal blackboards filled with scribbles of neon chalk. The randomness of the grafitti is appropriately light-hearted and innocuous. There's school pride (West Virginia, Virginia Tech and Ball So Hard) and shout-outs to friends who likely won't see them. And in 2012, it's just not a party without a scrawling of YOLO on the wall.

FOR MORE THAN five years, Westminster resident Tom Holder has created chalkboard murals for local businesses. His artistic creations advertise everything from hot dogs at Harry's Main Street Grille to the festivities surrounding the inauguration of Western Maryland College President Joan Develin Coley. Holder's chalkboard murals have also become whimsical records of who's who and what's happening in the community. Since the Ravens rolled into town for training camp, the board at Harry's has featured portraits of middle linebacker Ray Lewis and defensive tackle Tony "Goose" Siragusa.

It's hard to believe that South Baltimore's SoBo Cafe has been open for 10 years now, and I had never eaten there until this month. South Baltimore has changed tremendously in the last decade. The SoBo Cafe, not so much. Looking back at our LIVE review at the time, I see that when this funky favorite first opened, the walls were a sunny yellow and nothing on the chalkboard menu cost more than $10. The walls are now the color of tomato bisque, with one dark blue one, but they are still hung with bright artwork.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Thomas Jefferson inspired the project that, 174 years after his death, has roused his hometown: a monument to free speech. But the opportunity to let people write whatever they want on a big chalkboard downtown has some townsfolk worried about what their neighbors might say. And those fears have dominated the debate over the proposed monument, a 7-foot-high slate chalkboard that would be built on public property across the street...

R. Thomas Holder, a Carroll County artist and teacher whose work ranged from abstract paintings to portraits and a restaurant chalkboard that he enlivened with whimsical drawings, died of prostate cancer Friday at his Westminster home. He was 71. Mr. Holder was born and raised in Greenville, S.C., and served in the Army during the Korean War. He earned his bachelor's degree from Furman University in 1964, a master's degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art and a second master's degree in education from Coppin State College in 1971.

MHLWAZI, South Africa - Ten-year-old Lamlile Sithole sat in her fourth-grade civics class at Thembokuhle Primary School on a recent morning, staring at a question scrawled across the chalkboard: "Who is the government?" In unison, Sithole and her 26 classmates recited the answer: "One. The government is the most important body in the country," they chanted. "Two. The government is responsible for many things. Three. They make sure our country is safe for all of us to live in. Four. To provide us with important things like health, education, roads and pensions."

O'Leary's, 310 Third St., Annapolis, (410) 263-0884. Open for dinner every evening. AE, MC, V. No smoking. Prices: appetizers, $4.95-$7.95; entrees, $10.95-$22. **1/2 In front of O'Leary's, the beach grasses rustled softly in the breeze. The building itself looks like a weathered beach cottage. True, it's set down between two parking lots, and there is a fish market between the restaurant and the water; but you can catch a glimpse of the sailboats docked at the nearby marina.Inside you expect to find fish nets on the walls and fried seafood on the menu.

Bates Middle School math teacher Sarah Green doesn't have to wait for volunteers. On a recent Tuesday morning, small hands fluttered eagerly in the air for a chance to answer a question about negative integers. But the concept, which they'll need to grasp before learning algebra next year, is not what the pupils are focused on. They just want to use their fingers to drag colored dots across the new interactive whiteboard screen. Anne Arundel County public schools are slowly replacing chalkboards with 4-foot-wide touch-sensitive screens that hook up to a projector and computer.

At Harry's Main Street Grille in Westminster, the first thing that catches the eye is a chalkboard mural. With the Baltimore Ravens in town for summer training camp at McDaniel College, the mural recently featured a Ravens theme - including portraits of coach Brian Billick and William McDaniel, the man for whom the school is named. The mural - ever-changing, and as likely to feature local business figures as celebrities - covers most of a vestibule wall. "First impressions are lasting impressions," says Harry Sirinakis, the restaurant's owner.

Like the actor who breaks in his shoes starting with the first day of rehearsal, Reggie Baskerville has been easing into the role of teacher this summer. On a backstage tour of Center Stage this week with other new Baltimore City teachers, he wore a common new-teacher look - dignified apprehension. Some call it fear. Otherwise, his dress was casual -- jeans and a Tommy Hilfiger sweatshirt -- like the kids he wants to reach. Every day for five weeks, most of it in a summer institute for new teachers, he has pictured himself in the classroom.
