Charles R. "Chuck" Callanan, a retired educator, volunteer and author who had headed Park School for nearly a decade, died July 6 of pulmonary disease at Sedgewood Commons, an assisted-living facility in Falmouth, Maine. He was 86. "I was right out of college when he hired me in 1971 as a physical education teacher," said Carol Kinne, who lives in Mount Washington and is director of diversity and service at Park. "I was in awe of his wisdom, sense of humor and vision.

Imagine being able to walk into every boutique, salon and bar in Fells Point without leaving your desk. Or, from the comfort of your couch, touring every restaurant in Little Italy before making a reservation. If Frank Clark has his way, eventually everyone with an Internet connection will be able to virtually visit every business in Baltimore. No, in Maryland. "Our job is to shoot everything," Clark said recently as he photographed a game shop in the Historic Savage Mill. Clark is a "Google-trusted photographer," one of three contractors so titled in the state.

Contributor Lexie Mountain is an epic Van Halen fan, and has an epic review of Wednesday night's show at the Verizon Center. I have to admit: I was hoping for VAN HALEN-CON 2012. Sort of like Burning Man, but with a greater possibility of being set on fire by an errant can of Aqua Net or hassled in the parking lot by some toughs in Thom McAns. You know, a real circus. I wanted to fear for my life. But I did not fear for my life. Whole families, with their kids wearing Styx t-shirts, had come to see Van Halen at the Verizon Center Wednesday night.

The flowers are not the only things in bloom at Kroh's Nursery year after year. In fact, this family business has deep roots that continue to grow in this Aberdeen nursery. In 1980, husband and wife, Robert and Mickie Sachs purchased Kroh's Nursery because they wanted to spend the rest of their lives working in a nursery and garden center. And after high school, their son Jeff started working the family business. Today, Jeff runs the day-to-day operations and says, “I started working in the nursery with my parents when I was just 10 years old. I remember holidays and Mother's Day, which are the busiest days of the year for us.” Though Robert and Mickie still work at the nursery today, Jeff Sachs runs the business and has expanded what they offer with custom design/build landscape services including hand crafted stone walls and patios, garden pools and waterfalls, and landscape maintenance.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's guests in the city's private skybox at Ravens games this past season included a small circle of city employees, prominent business leaders, donors to her campaign, and several family members, documents show. City officials say there are no restrictions on whom the mayor can invite to the skybox, which is provided at no cost to Rawlings-Blake, as it was to her predecessors, under the lease agreement for what is now called M&T Bank Stadium. Documents obtained by The Baltimore Sun through a public records request indicate that the mayor extended invitations for both personal and political purposes.

On Christmas morning, an unidentified man called the restaurant and liquor store Wesley's in Elkton and asked for the winning Powerball numbers. When a clerk read the numbers over the phone, the mystery caller said, "Looks like I am the winner. " So far, that's all the longtime family-run restaurant, lounge and liquor store knows about the person who won the $125 million jackpot. Maryland Lottery officials don't know who the winner is either. Like nearly all state offices, the agency was closed Monday, said spokeswoman Carole Y. Everett.

Shortly after Boo Corrigan was hired as Army's athletic director earlier this year, he found himself talking to a group of graduates of the U.S. Military Academy. Nobody in the room noticed, but Corrigan seemed to be doing a pretty good imitation of a man many consider one of the most influential and respected college athletic administrators of his time. "I found my mannerisms were the same as my dad, the way I was talking," Corrigan recalled. "He's a lot smarter than I am. I called my brother David and said, 'I think I've become Papa Gene.'" The influence of his father, a Baltimore native who was the athletic director at Virginia and Notre Dame before becoming the commissioner of the Atlantic Coast Conference, was what directed his now 44-year old son back into what essentially was the family business.

Joe Graziose and his family have recently moved into their fourth home at the same location — the Ritz-Carlton Residences along Baltimore's Inner Harbor. "We've tested locations on all fronts of the building," he said. "Our last unit overlooked Federal Hill. " It is not that the Grazioses are fickle or hard to please. On the contrary. As senior vice president of RXR Realty, developers of the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Baltimore, as well as one of its investors, Graziose has always opened his and wife Jackie's home to prospective buyers looking for a unit in the upscale complex.

I wish I had met Bosley Wright three years earlier. Back in 2008, I embarked on a do-it-mostly-myself kitchen renovation that included adding architectural millwork around the door and window frames. Easy enough, except that I wanted to match the existing original millwork installed in 1918. They didn't have anything even close at Lowes or Home Depot. Faced with what I thought was no other inexpensive option, I purchased raw lumber and then cut, chiseled, planed, and sanded the lumber to match.
