I returned to my old community of West Baltimore, under the shadow of Bon Secours Hospital near the intersection of West Fayette and North Payson streets, to visit a native I had not seen for three decades. David Brown, who lived across the alley from me in the old neighborhood, had years ago opened a small store directly across from the sprawling hospital. The New Fayette Street Market & Deli is like a small fortress, with a Plexiglas bastion from which he can sell sundries and essentials in blackest night or brightest day. In one corner of his store is a small desk with two computers, which provide neighborhood kids with a window to a world far removed from the blasted buildings and broken streets of the community.

Carmen Amyot and David Brown say their relationship is a case of opposites attracting. She is sunny and outgoing, and he has a sarcastic sense of humor. She is more emotional, he is more reserved. She grew up with siblings and he is an only child. When they accept their differences, David says, "that's when we appreciate each other more." The couple met when they were working at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, a center for children with disabilities in Baltimore. Carmen coordinated therapeutic foster care and David was a recreation specialist.

I stand with President Obama on health care reform. Our country is in dire circumstances, and we must act as one nation to bring it out of economic ruin. As a small business owner in Baltimore, I feel directly the crush of health care costs. I cannot afford to buy myself or my seven-year-old son health care coverage, let alone my one remaining employee. The others, I have had to let go because of the economy. Soon our country is going to be a second-rate power in a hostile global marketplace.

I have never really enjoyed the cold weather in the Northeast, so I'm glad that winter is over, spring is in full bloom and summer is just around the corner. I love to bask in the heat of the sun's rays. And I hope you do, too. In this issue of UniSun, we've put together a story on coming summer concerts that are must-attend. Some are at outdoor venues, such as Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia or Pier Six Concert Pavilion in Baltimore. Others are inside, such as at 1st Mariner Arena or Rams Head Live.

An Anne Arundel County jury convicted yesterday a Severn teenager of first-degree murder in what police and prosecutors say was a random thrill-kill on a spring afternoon in 2004. Terry Cooks Jr., 19, appeared dejected when the eight-man, four-woman jury found him guilty of killing David Brown, a 52-year-old emergency room technician, as he walked in Severn's Provinces Park. Cooks' mother sobbed at the verdict. The trial focused on Cooks' chilling confession to county detectives. In it, he said, "I went to the park to shoot someone," and, when asked how he felt about it, he said, "I felt sorry for him at first, but then I didn't worry about it."

A spokesman for the Baltimore Department of Transportation is disputing a report by Inside Edition that he dismissed the recent electrocution death of a dog in Charles Village with a comment that will put the city's high homicide rate in the national spotlight once again. According to Inside Edition, city transportation spokesman David Brown told a producer investigating the Baltimore incident and others in New York and Boston, "We've got 28 murders a month ... and you're worried about some shocked dogs?"
