A Charlie Chaplin movie like his early masterpiece "The Kid" (1921) is an ideal choice for an open-air urban screening like the one at 8 tonight at the Clifton Park band shell. That's because Chaplin combined unparalleled high jinks with nonpareil sensitivity. Chaplin's combination of balletic grace and robust iconoclastic farce has never been equaled. He might have carried himself like a European aristocrat in his later years, but his hardscrabble London background was the prime source of his pathos-laden humor.

The Clifton Park Valve House is a wreck, slowly decaying as time passes. Surrounded by chain-link fence, its stained-glass windows are shattered, and the sky is clearly visible through missing roof tiles. Developer Charles T. Jeffries wants to restore the rare 1888 octagonal structure and transform it into offices. But his dream seems unlikely to become reality. After years of delay and wrangling, city officials have had enough of Jeffries and his Center Development Corp. He missed the contractual deadline to begin construction, so the city has terminated his 50-year lease on the property in Northeast Baltimore's Clifton Park.

Not quite four years ago, I began some trips to St. Vincent Cemetery, an old and abandoned burying ground largely surrounded by the Clifton Park Golf Course in Northeast Baltimore. In that summer of 2010, a small group of descendants of those buried there initiated a campaign to get the weeds and invasive trees cut down - and to win respect for the spot where nearly 3,700 people rest. Last fall, a 15-year-old Dulaney High School sophomore from Lutherville, John Patrick Nolan III, stepped up. As his Eagle Scout project, he decided to improve the cemetery's condition.

Dozens of boys and girls stretched to a Taylor Swift song before an all-out dance session. Outside, a group of children did cannon balls and splashed in the pool. Others awaited the star attractions of the recreation center at Liberty Elementary School - the horses trotting on the front lawn. For a time, it had appeared unlikely that kids would have any recreational activities this summer at Liberty Elementary. It was one of about 20 rec centers shut by the city as part of Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's strategy to invest in fewer, higher-quality facilities.
