Last year, after Sharon Jones' third round of chemotherapy to treat stage-two pancreatic cancer, the 58-year-old soul singer cried as she decided to cut off her remaining hair, which was “hanging onto strings in little braids.” Moments later, the frontwoman of the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based group Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings found humor and strength in her new hairstyle. She even seemed to like it. “When I looked in that mirror, I was like, 'Oh! My head is pretty round. I got a nice pretty round head.

Nalley Fresh will open locations this summer in Timonium and Canton. These will be the fourth and fifth locations, respectively, for Nalley Fresh, a locally owned restaurant specializing in customer-designed salads, wraps and rice bowls. Conceived by Greg Nalley, a former head chef at Pimlico Race Course, the first Nalley Fresh opened on Calvert and Baltimore streets in March 2012. A Hunt Valley location was added later the same year and a Towson location this spring. The Timonium location, which will be at the Timonium Shopping Center on York Road, and the Canton location, which will occupy the former DAP Products office in the Can Company, will be the first Nalley Fresh spots to offer dinner service and to be open seven days a week, according to Nalley.

When Barack Obama clinched the Democratic nomination Tuesday night, in his victory moment he didn't merely turn to his wife for a perfunctory, sterile hug. Nor did the two engage, like Al and Tipper Gore, in an awkward make-out session. The Obamas dapped. That is, in a move that has electrified African-Americans and young people nationwide, the couple faced each other, looked into each other's eyes, formed fists and then tapped knuckles. Dap! If the nomination of the first African-American candidate for president is itself a historic moment, that little gesture, for many, punctuated the occasion with ethnic style and inherent coolness.

Outgoing Anne Arundel County Executive Robert R. Neall is known as a technocrat and is often assumed to be indifferent to social issues. The image is not entirely accurate. Mr. Neall has thrown his support behind several innovative social programs, the most recent being a radical alternative to welfare.C-DAP, which stands for Community-Directed Assistance Program, is the first program of its kind in Maryland and an experiment we'd like to see tried in other places. Granted, C-DAP's success has yet to be tested and is by no means assured.

Note: Due to weather, this year's Silopanna Music Festival has been canceled. Judging by the charts in recent years, it seems as though America has rediscovered soul and funk. Cee Lo Green, Janelle Monae, Bruno Mars — even Grace Potter and Fitz and the Tantrums — have found mainstream success with music inspired, occasionally lifted from and mostly in debt to the sounds that dominated the '60s and early '70s. To Sharon Jones, the indefatigable lead singer of the Dap-Kings, it just seems like the world has caught up with her and her band.

The Florida developer working to construct a Ritz-Carlton hotel south of the Inner Harbor unveiled plans for the $100 million project to the city yesterday, including a newly designed 26-story tower -- significantly taller than previously proposed.The proposal presented yesterday to the city's Design Advisory Panel is an alternative to a two-building plan that would rise 135 feet.As it has in the past, developer Neil Fisher's proposals for the 250-room luxury hotel and 50-unit condominium project drew opposition because they would violate height restrictions in place through 2007 and require a change in city ordinances that govern the land adjacent to the Rusty Scupper restaurant.

"Does anyone ever tease you or make fun of you?" Shelby Kennedy asked the third-graders at Manor Woods Elementary School in Ellicott City. About half of the kids raised their hands. "Well, in middle school I got teased a lot," Kennedy said. Then she explained how learning to play drums helped her gain confidence. Now 17, Kennedy seemed poised beyond her years as she stood in front of a semicircle of cross-legged kids and discussed her life. Kennedy, who was born with no arms below the elbows, speaks to schoolchildren every Friday as part of her work with the disABILITY AWARENESS project (dAp)
