A surveillance camera near the East Baltimore murder scene spied a group from the Black Guerrilla Family gathered to congratulate a gang member on a job well done - a long-time rival was dead and a prior killing avenged. Henry Mills had been a BGF target since the gang started to take over the drug trade along a stretch of Greenmount Avenue years before, and he was suspected of murdering a senior BGF figure, authorities say. By 2011 Mills' insistence on running a freelance heroin operation on gang territory was too much to tolerate.

I remember the faded photograph my aunt kept in a place of honor in her home. My grandfather was 5, sitting atop a pony at the corner of North Patterson Park and Ashland avenues. He wore a petticoat and cap. It was about 1925. I remember the stories about "Pop" Schoppert, my grandfather's father, making the trip from West Virginia to Baltimore to seek a better life. The trunk with which he traveled sits in the basement of my parents' house. I remember, as a child, examining it, imagining that journey.

Brewer Justin Bonner acknowledges that he used to be more of a wine geek. But he said stopped short of buying a vineyard on the Eastern Shore when he realized it just how tough it would be to grow quality grapes in Maryland. Nonetheless, the former defense contractor wanted to produce an affordable drink that that he could share with the public. He noticed that more Marylanders were drinking craft beers but suspected that the supply wasn't meeting demand. So he and his business partner Kasey Turner spent $2 million to open Jailbreak Brewing Co., Howard County's first brewery, in March.

On behalf of Baltimore's stakeholders, I want to express my thanks to Gregory E. Thornton, the new chief executive officer of Baltimore City Public Schools, for his inspiring words (" Much work to be done ," Aug. 25). In case you're wondering, the stake I hold is a house I recently bought in East Baltimore. It's a big row house, built in 1875, so I don't exactly hold it - really it holds me - but I guess that part isn't so important. Let me get to the point: CEO Thornton tells us he will run the city schools like a business.

One reads it in a diary entry. Another hears it in a song. Yet another feels it in an aging mansion. The War of 1812 is often referred to as a forgotten war. Yet for the descendants of those who witnessed the Battle of Baltimore, the conflict remains vivid. It was two centuries ago this week that British ships descended on Baltimore to deliver a death blow to the young United States. They had seized and burned Washington, and they thought they would score an easy victory here.

Pastor Elbert Street noticed a small crack in the wall behind the pulpit at Grace Christian Baptist Church. It widened. Then a branch appeared. A cluster of leaves unfurled. That was when Street realized that something was growing between the walls of his East Baltimore church: an 8-foot-tall tree. The 79-year-old pastor and others took the wall apart, hacked down the tree and hauled away bags of branches and roots. The tree came back. They cut it down again. And then again.
