From graffiti on buses ("Virgin. Teach your kids it's not a dirty world") to posters of chickens in tennis shoes ("What do you call a guy who makes a baby, then flies the coop?") to the heart-rending pleas of real teens ("Mom. Dad. Talk to me. I need you now. "), Baltimore's Campaign for Our Children has for a quarter century brought the polished skills of Madison Avenue to the problem of teen pregnancy. Through its symbiotic relationship with the successful ad agency Richardson, Myers and Donofrio, now Carton Donofrio Partners, the campaign was also able to leverage the agency's media relationships into free space on buses and billboards and free time on the airwaves.

The woman on the pinkish-red billboards dotting the cityscape is hard to miss. She is black, beautiful, proud and defiant. Staring at us from behind her black-rimmed glasses, we know she's all business because she tells us so. "I don't give it up. And I'm not giving in," the words practically shout. Driving by her on St. Paul Street near the train station, on Interstate 83 heading north, Orleans Street heading east or any of the other locations where she can be found, we read her message and ponder her life every day. What is it, we wonder, that she's not giving up?

A MISSIVE CROSSED our desk recently, posing this most perplexing question: What do Michael Jordan, Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King, Bill Cosby and Baltimore ad exec Hal Donofrio have in common? Was this, we pondered, one of those confounded trick questions bound to pluck our absolute last and only nerve? Fortunately, not.As it turns out, all of the above were sent personally embossed leather bound editions of The New International Version of the Bible from Zondervan Publishing House President Jim Buick, who selected this distinguished group for having positive influences on American society.

Sure, Sean Carton is saying, I always saw myself as a multimedia micro-mogul. Absolutely. Anything you say. So would you if you left graduate school in the recession year of 1991 with a degree in something called critical theory. It's not as if anyone else was going to give him a job.Well, there was the public relations job with the museum, followed by that nasty job at the printing place. But, sooner or later, that master's thesis on hyper-media, the then-nascent art of using hyper-text links to connect computers that now is the heart of the World Wide Web, was going to get Carton somewhere.

Rasmussen, 45, comes back to Baltimore after a stint at Temerlin McClain, a respected $500 million ad shop in Dallas, where he was one of five creative directors and ran creative efforts for Verizon, Bell Helicopter and Hanes/Just My Size.

Housing Commissioner Paul T. Graziano chose the $11 million proposal after a review panel unanimously recommended it over two others.
