At age 100, Fader's Tobacconist is showing absolutely no signs of kicking the habit.Drop by 107 E. Baltimore St. and ask for Barking Dog, St. Bruno, Navy Flake, Condor, Three Nuns or Baby's Bottom.The salesman, dressed in a well-ironed shirt and a tie, will comply and perhaps suggest you might try some Calvert, Westview, Melvin's Madness or Cave Man's Delight.Be it a Connecticut cigar or snuff from Oslo, Fader's probably stocks it. Baltimore's oldest retail purveyor of the weed has more tobacco variants than there are no-smoking signs in Columbia.

Jodi Fader, a condo owner at Baltimore's Ritz-Carlton Residences at the Inner Harbor, will tell you there's nothing like knocking out a few walls to welcome in a world of light and water views. "We've been watching this property develop for the last 11 years," said Jodi Fader who, along with her husband, Brian, was the first to occupy the ground floor, wrap-around unit. "We made architectural changes to make it more like a home. " In addition to opening rooms off of a main hallway to allow for a more circular flow, she and her husband added wood paneling in the kitchen and great room, chose wide-planked, old wood flooring to contrast with the marble of the entrance hall and kitchen area, wallpapered the dining room with a hand-painted scene of Chinese-inspired birds and foliage, and finally, integrated antique family pieces with her transitional decor.

Judge John F. Fader II's benign, fatherly appearance doesn't fool anybody once he starts lecturing troubled families in his Baltimore County courtroom.The Circuit Court judge tells a divorced couple fighting over visitation with their teen-age sons: "We can't have two armed camps at their weddings."He tells a belligerent man in leg chains who owes $13,000 in child support: "There are murderers, there are pedophiles, and there are people who don't pay child support."As the Maryland Court of Appeals considers establishing family courts in Maryland's largest counties, Fader has carved a niche for himself as an authority on family law -- divorce, custody, child support, domestic violence.

Fader's Tobacconist, the century-old cigar and pipe emporium that the Fader family sold in February, will move its downtown flagship store early next year to a former Cadillac dealership on South Calvert Street.Fader's building at 107 E. Baltimore St., home to the tobacco products supplier since 1972, will be razed sometime next year to make way for construction of a 34-story skyscraper set to include a suites hotel, office space, restaurants and a parking garage.Fader's expects to close a $265,000 deal to buy the 7,500-square-foot building at 12 S. Calvert from Williams, Jackson and Ewing within the next 10 days, said Michael J. Goeller, Fader's new owner and president.

Seventy years after a Water Street factory closed and ended A. Fader & Son's cigar-making days, one of the Baltimore tobacconist's premium cigars is back.The cigar, called "La Flor de Iraba," returned this week with its colorful label and "AF" logo to A. Fader & Son's six stores."I wanted to do this for a long time," Ira B. "Bill" Fader, the grandson of the company's founder, said at his East Baltimore Street shop. "I thought we should have a cigar that has our name on it. I finally took the bull by the horns and did it."

Premium cigar sales, which burned fiercely in the mid-1990s, have tapered off significantly in recent years, leading the two top investors who bought the venerable A. Fader & Son Inc. cigar and pipe chain in 1998 to sell four of its six stores in recent months. Each investor wound up owning a store, while former Fader's employees now own the rest. The chain's flagship downtown location at 12 S. Calvert St. will remain in the hands of one of the investors, Stephen L. Gurba, who said he's dedicated to keeping open.

We're only 72 hours past the sanctioned Day of National Gluttony, Thanksgiving, when it's considered unpatriotic to take on anything less than 25,000 calories. I'm sure everyone by now has had enough turkey, dressing, cranberries, mashed potatoes, peas, wedges of Aunt Maude's world famous pumpkin pie and Alka-Seltzer to last until Christmas, which comes around in only 26 days. However, I'm hoping that you've saved a little room for a calorie-free sliver of Thanksgiving history that was brought to my attention the other day by retired Baltimore County Circuit Judge John F. Fader II, whose hobbies include collecting and committing to memory arcane facts and incidents relating to U.S. history.

At the ESPN Zone, there were a gazillion games to be played, autographs and photos to be gotten with Baltimore Orioles players like Melvin Mora and Aubrey Huff, loads of food to dig into, and a silent auction chock-full of sports memorabilia. Guest Pat Benhoff and son Connor Benhoff squeezed a lot into a few short hours of Brian's Baseball Bash. "We've shot baskets. We got Brian Roberts' picture and his autograph. And we've seen Melvin Mora," Benhoff recounted. Meanwhile, mom Kelly Horner, with daughter Kelsey and son C.J., had just finished eating and it was time for the next thing on their agenda.

My column last week regarding author Bob Staab's book, Growing up in Dundalk: Precious Memories, brought a flood of e-mails, phone calls and inquiries from Dundalkians past and present. They came from Florida, upstate New York and as far away as Minnesota, where Bob Bayne, wrote, "As [a former] Dundalkian now living in Minnesota, I would LOVE this book." It seems that the miles and years have not diminished the fondness people feel for Dundalk, its people and its way of life. Kaye Kourkoules wants to give a copy of the book to several Dundalk relatives so they can "share their memories," she said.

Ask Erykah Badu about her music -- what inspires it, what keeps it fresh -- and she becomes metaphorical. "Have you ever had some hot tea when you had a cold? Some good tea?" she asks, her voice mellow with an old-soul Southern accent. "It works and makes you feel better, don't it? My music, I think, is like some good tea." Phoning from her Dallas home, the artist continues: "Each album has its own life. I'm not the same person I was in 1997." These days, Badu, who will play the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Tuesday night, is much richer in several ways.

Anyone who has spent much time in Courtroom 11, the 21-year home of Baltimore County Circuit Judge John F. Fader II, knows that the only person who is right about everything, 100 percent of the time, is Mrs. Fader. The judge has dispensed that pearl of wisdom countless times in his legato lilt, halting countless high-stakes debates between countless high-strung lawyers. His clerks and assistants know it by heart - to the slight embarrassment of Kathryn Fader. But as of this month, that piece of advice will be doled out fewer and fewer times in Fader's courtroom, until, in January, it disappears.
