She runs to the printer, her long, black braid flying, to grab papers for a meeting. She climbs the back stairs, two at a time. Chandreyee Banerjee hasn't been sleeping more than two hours a night. And if someone didn't share a sandwich with her or quietly leave a cookie on her chair, she might not have eaten this week, either. It's hard to think of food, with thousands of people without any. Banerjee coordinates support for Catholic Relief Services' emergency workers in four of the Asian countries hardest hit by the Dec. 26 earthquake and tsumani.

Yesterday, as Baltimore's campaign to make its narrow side streets passable finally began in earnest, homely diggers and dozers became as important as the familiar snowplow.Three days after the first flakes fell, the drifts still were high in neighborhoods, with cars nestled inside them like slumbering bears. Enter the backhoe, a buglike, 2-ton contraption with a bucket in front to scoop the drifts away -- 4 cubic yards at a time -- and monstrous back wheels that can pack snow nearly to the pavement in one pass.

Baltimore County police went to the house and found a woman shot dead, and her 3-year-old son was gone. It wasn't the first time officers had been there, and they broadcast an alert for a silver Toyota. Within minutes, the driver - the woman's ex-boyfriend - was under arrest, and their young son was in safe hands. Killed was Anna Marie Bergman, 20, a dental assistant who died in the house she had recently bought in a neighborhood just west of the Baltimore City line. Ryan Joseph Butler, a 22-year- old warehouse worker and a doorman at a downtown Baltimore nightclub, was charged last night with first-degree murder.

Pandora soon will add its logo to the city's skyline as the company relocates its regional headquarters for the Americas and about 250 employees to Baltimore from Columbia by early 2015. The Danish jeweler known for its charm bracelets announced Thursday that it will lease five floors of the building at 250 W. Pratt St. with rights to place its bright-white logo on two sides of the skyscraper, easily visible from the stands at Oriole Park at Camden Yards . The move should serve the dual purpose of increasing Pandora's prominence in the region while accommodating the growing retailer's workforce, said Scott Burger, president of Pandora Americas.

ONE OF MY late mother's all-time best lines was her description of hell: "The nonsmoking section of the wrap desk." She loved smoking. She detested wrapping gifts. And she did both with staggering energy. She dealt with a present-giving household of 12 and an even larger network of cousins and friends. For a woman who didn't drive and often hand-carried her Christmas items home on the No. 8 streetcar, this was work. She didn't see it that way. She loved to give; it was her greatest joy. And to give meant tailoring the present to what would delight the recipient.
