They came to the Motor Trend International Auto Show in Baltimore with five cars on their list and a plan to narrow it down to three. "We're moving out of the minivan category because we're now 50-somethings with no kids to haul," said Mindy Doring, who was checking out the inside of a Hyundai Elantra with a sticker price of $16,445 and 40 miles per gallon on the highway. "It's now about comfort and the ability to throw down the seats and move a piece of furniture. " Doring and her husband, Mark, came from their home in Catonsville to shop and were part of the all-business category among attendees of the show, which runs through Sunday at the Baltimore Convention Center.

They have so much in common, these three long-dead holy women, their corpses dripping with jewels, that it's as though they've been calling back and forth to one another from across the centuries. Now that their images are in the same room at the American Visionary Art Museum , the murmur of their voices is almost audible. There's St. Kateri, holding a bouquet of her talisman - lilies - and reciting the Lord's Prayer in the Mohawk language. Embedded in the icon is a vial of water taken from the spring where Kateri lived in the 17th century.

DURHAM, N.C. -- It was a night for dreamers in Cameron Indoor Stadium but it looked, at times, like a scene from a Bill Murray movie.The Duke Blue Devils, the reigning kings of college basketball, held open tryouts yesterday for one spot on their roster.Participants were required only to be male, enrolled at Duke and confident or imaginative enough to believe they belonged on the court with Christian Laettner and Bobby Hurley.There were 38 players who answered coach Mike Krzyzewski's call to try out. A few were good enough to get a serious look.

A group of young people banded together more than a decade ago to overcome public opinion, personal doubt and bureaucracy and build a safe space where Baltimore's youths could thrive and be recognized as productive members of the community. But the Youth Dreamers recently realized they couldn't overcome their biggest hurdle: reality. The Dreamers started as a small, elective middle-school class and became one of the most successful youth-run organizations in the city, drawing national attention.

Alice Smith's way was the only way it was all going to work. The singer-songwriter wasn't always sure about the sound she wanted for her debut album, 2006's For Lovers, Dreamers & Me. But she knew one thing: Whatever came out wouldn't sound like anything she heard around her. "I had to deal with having people involved in my business, which is my music," says Smith, who headlines Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis on Monday night. "I had to deal with people wanting me to be R&B; people telling me to make this, make that.

Make what you will of the fact that southeastern Baltimore County is home to several go-go clubs, but let the record state that there also are plenty of bars down there where the women keep their clothes on.The nightclub Dreamers, which, incidentally, used to be a go-go bar, straightened up its act a couple of years ago. That's when Kitty McNeill says she and her husband bought the place, gave it a new name and a new image. Still, old customer habits die hard."Jeepers creepers, we've been a nightclub for a while now, but sometimes guys will still come in, stand at the door like they're looking for the go-go girls, and then they'll walk out at that point," says Ms. McNeill.

When they weren't sliding, running up and down stairs, swinging through the air or gluing something together, the children visiting the Inner Harbor's Port Discovery - dubbed "little dreamers" by staff - took a moment yesterday to remember the life and work of a big dreamer - Martin Luther King Jr. The salute to King, whose birthday will be celebrated today with a parade in Baltimore and with tributes across the country, occurred as part of the museum's...

The Redeem Team obviously wasn't as glamorous as its Dream Team predecessors; neither did it enjoy what amounted to the wire-to-wire triumphal procession that Michael Jordan and company had in Barcelona 16 years ago. But, as shocking as the suggestion might be, the 2008 version of the U.S. national basketball team would have beaten the 1992 squad that has been canonized over the years - at least in the international arena. Where the Dream Team had advantages are obvious. The Dreamers had two 7-footers (Patrick Ewing and David Robinson)

In this temple of sound,the sounds are speechless speech,the sounds are feeling tones that feel,joined choirs of sound that singtheir messagesinto hushed faces, into the insides oflistening flesh, touched motionlessby sound:within these rhyming walls,inside this shell that rolls in curvingeloquence,beneath the forceful thrust of circlingline on line.To hear such themes as dreamersdream,or clutch wild, giant seas,or smell clean, tumbling air,or laugh at crashing waterfalls,or scream at silent night,inspires the new, allows the old to be.Hearing such themes, we meltin ecstasy.

When I was a Ph.D. student at Yale, I dreamed of working as a university professor, directing a research laboratory, and training students of my own. I have been a professor for a little over four years now. Of the lessons I have learned in this time, the one I have taken most to heart is that scientists at American universities spend far more time dreaming of research than actually carrying it out. By "dreaming," I mean that university scientists design...

Developers and members of the http://www.baltimoresun.com/travel/beaches/ Council sure can come up with goofy ideas on how to "improve and promote" http://www.baltimoresun.com/travel/beaches/ ("Aerial tram proposed for OC," June 20). It was bad enough that Councilman Brent Ashley came up with the free gasoline give-away which was approved and then cancelled by the council. The council will hear similar complaints about the proposed aerial tram ride, rising 50 to 85 feet above the boardwalk and stretching from the inlet parking lot to 16th St. Wouldn't it be nice to look out the window of your high-priced condo or $250 a night hotel room and stare straight into cables, 6-to-8 passenger cable cars, and concrete pilings?

Kevin C. Coates and I didn't exactly get off on the right foot. The longtime advocate for Maglev — for magnetic levitation — train technology wrote that he found my column last week praising a book whose author favored another approach to high-speed rail "offensive. " I wrote back that I found it offensive that he would be offended. He is, after all, executive director of the North American Maglev Transport Institute and ought to have a thicker skin. Eventually, we got past snorting at each other like bull moose in mating season and had a civil exchange of ideas about Maglev technology versus incremental approaches to improved passenger rail service such as those championed by author James McCommons in his book "Waiting on a Train.

Leah Cronin repeatedly hacked at a partially destroyed foyer wall with a crowbar, causing plaster and wood to crash to the floor. With a swift yank of the tool, she was able to leverage enough power to separate a wooden panel from the wall, exposing the skeletal structure of the home. Cronin and a team of 30 fellow volunteers spent yesterday ripping out fixtures, removing ceilings, exposing walls and sweeping out debris from an old three-story Waverly house they hope to transform into a youth center.

On a back wall of the brightest house on Carswell Street hangs a piece of paper, protected in plastic to keep it from crumbling. It's a promise, impetuously made nearly a decade ago by sixth graders who lived nearby. They were going to open an after-school center. They each scribbled their name in marker, to seal the deal. No one thought they'd ever really do it. Not even their teacher, who helped them draft the pledge. Yet the kids and their teacher from a rough part of town incorporated, raised more than a half-million dollars, fought government bureaucracy, changed a neighborhood's mind about inner city kids and turned a derelict eyesore into something beautiful.
