When Stephen Huppaty, owner of OzCorp Fine Builders, moved to Baltimore from Australia in 1997, he was intrigued by an interesting appendage to the miles of brick row houses -- rooftop decks. In the following years, these playpens in the sky would continue popping up in neighborhoods like Fells Point, Federal Hill, Locust Point, Butchers Hill and Canton. To Huppaty, it made perfect sense. In the tight confines of these neighborhoods, owners wishing to put additions on their row homes could either go back (given sufficient room)

After hundreds of nights of lane closures that have made driving the Bay Bridge a white-knuckle adventure, the work to replace the deck on the westbound span is scheduled to end this week. Unless the weather turns perverse, the work crews that have monopolized the westbound span of the bridge at night since late 2007 will pack up the tools of their trades and give the road back to drivers. Except for a little grinding and grooving, the roughly $65 million deck replacement project that has made bridge traffic an ordeal at night is complete.

Waterfront Kitchen has opened its outdoor deck. We can't wait to see it. Waterfront Kitchen opened late last October on the ground floor of the Living Classrooms' education pavilion. Jerry Pellegrino guided Waterfront Kitchen's farm-to-table menu, which is executed by a kitchen led by executive chef Levi Briggs. I reallly fell for this space, which takes full advantage of the museum's waterside location. The deck could be simply bonkers. There's other good news coming out of Waterfront Kitchen.

As the parent of a freshman at Cardinal Gibbons, I am saddened by the potential closing (though the Archdiocese insists it's a "consolidation') and outraged at what they aren't saying. My son was accepted at several archdiocesen schools and Gibbons after the eighth grade. After visiting the campuses, the choice was clear. Did other schools have nicer facilities? Absolutely! Are they quality institutions? Without question. Did they offer my son the warm and welcoming feeling of a family?

A year after Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake pledged to reinvigorate the city's civilian police review board, panel members say nothing much has changed. That's hardly surprising. The board still lacks the power to investigate citizens' complaints of police misconduct in a timely fashion, and its recommendations are routinely ignored by the department. A panel so toothless that even its own members publicly wonder whether their efforts are a complete waste of time obviously isn't accomplishing its mission as a mediator of police-community relations.

Ruth's Chris has had a good long run in Pier 5 Hotel. It opened in the hotel's main restaurant space in 2005. But nothing seems to work in hotel's smaller restaurant space. The Peacock Grill, Pizzazz Tuscan Grill and My Panini have come and gone. But that space has an amenity that Ruth's Chris doesn't have -- a waterfront deck. Actually, that deck hasn't always been there, and none of the cafes ever took full advantage of it. Now, Ruth's Chris at Pier 5 has taken over both the cafe space, which it will be using as a banquet facility and the adjoining deck, which they will open Wednesday through Sunday nights.

Rita Custer, of Aberdeen, has always been self-reliant. A former assistant manager for a Rite Aid Pharmacy, she is currently living on unemployment due to prolonged illness. She is also raising two sons, age 11 and 16. Her oldest, Justin, has Down's syndrome and has been the victim of bullying in his own back yard.

The weekend begins on Wednesday nights in Annapolis with the blast of a starting gun. That's when dozens of sailboats jockeying in the Severn River harbor head to the starting line for the Annapolis Yacht Club's Wednesday night races, a summer tradition in this waterfront community since the 1960s. What began as "beer can races" - just a casual event to break up the week - has become serious business for the sailors, as well as for City Dock bars and restaurants. "This is real sailing," said Bobby Frey, the yacht club judge who runs the races, which are perfect for the competitive sailors who don't have the time to travel the country to regattas.

Gary Thorne needed approximately zero seconds to declare Nelson Cruz's sixth-inning hit a home run. He was less accurate in his estimation of just where the titanic blast would land inside Target Field. Your browser does not support iframes. The estimated length of Cruz's eighth rome run was 424 feet, but that just seems low. Don't you think so, Manny?

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra plays in suitably large concert halls, but its individual members often pop up in smaller halls around the region. A favorite spot is the Sundays at Three chamber music series, for which five Baltimore Symphony Orchestra woodwind and string section leaders perform on Sunday, April 6, at 3 p.m., at Christ Episcopal Church in Columbia. Sundays at Three lists 33 Baltimore Symphony Orchestra members as being among its regular performers. That means around one-third of the BSO's total membership has played for this Columbia-based music series.

When Greg and Heidi Bathon gaze out over the rail of their Federal Hill deck, they have a breathtaking view of the city, from the stadiums to the harbor and beyond. But when they turn around, their view of the deck itself is just as compelling. Greg Bathon, a retired businessman, is an avid gardener, honing his considerable skill on his deck. "When we moved in, the deck looked like a bowling alley," he says. "There was nothing there. We had arches and arcades built to put up vines so we could shade it. I never saw a plant I didn't like.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called Wednesday for the public to be more engaged in helping police and elected officials fight Baltimore's violence. "For me, 2014 is about making sure that everybody in their own way contributes to making Baltimore a safer city and the acknowledgment by the collective community that if you're not a part of the solution - if you are not actively part of the solution - than you are actively part of the problem," the mayor said. Rawlings-Blake called for an "all-hands-on-deck effort.

"Why do they seem so determined to also make it racial?" So asks Joy-Ann Reid, the managing editor of The Grio, a web magazine owned by NBC News whose mission is to "focus on news and events that have a unique interest and/or pronounced impact within the national African Americans audience. " The "they" in question are conservatives and journalists asking, among other things, why President Barack Obama hasn't inserted himself into this case the way he did in the Trayvon Martin tragedy.
