Hedy Hill, a stockbroker who led a successful effort to save the Woman's Industrial Exchange in the late 1990s, died of complications from an infection Sunday at Manor Care Ruxton. The Timonium resident was 69. Born Margaret Hedy van Reuth in Baltimore and raised in the Belvedere Square area, she was the daughter of Arthur van Reuth, an engineer, and the former Margaret Opitz, a volunteer. She was a 1960 Eastern High School graduate and earned a degree in business at the University of Maryland, College Park, where she was a member of the Kappa Delta sorority.

In most big-time Division I college sports, a relatively small school like Loyola University Maryland doesn't have a chance. It has fewer than 4,000 undergraduate students, and the Jesuit school puts an emphasis on academic excellence, not training future pro athletes. No major television contracts, no rich alumni out offering no-show jobs to recruits - it's not even the best-known school in the U.S. with "Loyola University" in its name. But what Loyola University Maryland does have is a lot of really good and well-coached lacrosse player who this past weekend brought home from Foxborough, Mass., something the school has never seen before - a men's lacrosse national title.

Some 700 miles away from home, Center Stage intern Meghan O'Rourke still got to celebrate her Irish heritage in Baltimore. She missed out on a family tradition Sunday — Chicago's South Side Irish Parade — but Baltimore's St. Patrick's Day Parade meant she didn't have to miss out on St. Paddy's festivities. She and others lined up Sunday along Charles Street to take in dance troupes, marching bands, flag corps, bagpipe brigades, antique fire trucks and classic cars.

Robin Budish spends her days rallying support for an idea she says will make downtown Baltimore more livable — building a streetcar line along Charles Street. Budish was hired last fall as community organizer for the Baltimore Streetcar Campaign, a grass-roots group that believes a fixed rail trolley system would attract residents, boost civic pride, spur economic development and benefit tourism, retail and cultural institutions. Budish, the former executive director of Fells Point Main Street, and also a former Historic Charles Street Association executive director, has been meeting with downtown residents, business owners and other stakeholders.
