It seemed that life was getting better and better for Jennifer Lynn McDonel. Her baby, Lydia, celebrated her first birthday last month. McDonel and her husband, Thomas, had finally saved enough money to move out of her parents' home in Baltimore and into a townhouse on Turkey Point in eastern Baltimore County. Best of all, McDonel, a Jamaican native, recently found out she was a month pregnant. An effervescent and spiritual person, McDonel, 37, worked hard at life so that her family could enjoy it. That life was smashed to pieces Wednesday night when a gunman fired at McDonel's car as she was driving to church along Ebenezer Road in Chase with her husband.

Probably no tale gets staged more often than Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol at this time of year. I've seen spoofs. I've seen musicals. I've even seen a drag version. The Audrey Herman Spotlighters Theatre, which has produced its share of Christmas Carols, now has a new musical version, Ebenezer! with a book by Bryan Zochar and a tuneful score by Baltimorean PS Lorio and Linda Lee Bennett. The large-cast production, directed and choreographed by Deborah Newman, is a pleasant holiday diversion with a few nice interpretive touches.

South Baltimoreans from the old Sharp-Leadenhall neighborhood hold their community in high esteem. It is a historically African-American part of the city, revered by those who grew up there in its heyday. Some moved away. Others stayed. And parts got torn down for an interstate highway. I got to talking to one its proudest sons, Thomas D. Gillard, who is a 63-year-old retired Baltimore County substitute teacher. He was born at 900 Bevan St. and later lived in Hanover.
