With a prospective developer abandoning plans to revitalize a key vacant building on the City Dock waterfront, owners of the Annapolis property said they're uncertain about the future. "We don't have a clue where we are," said Greg Kaufman, co-owner of the Fawcett Boat Supplies building with Terry Terhorst through their company, Chandler LLC. Businessman Mark Ordan, who had hoped to demolish the vacant Fawcett building, said he terminated the deal to buy the property about three weeks ago, citing persistent opposition from city leaders and residents.

I keep hearing that the old Fawcett Boat Supplies building in Annapolis is an eyesore made of cinder block that obstructs the view of Ego Alley ( "Annapolis whiffs again," July 11). But only one side of the building is cinder block, and an outdoor photo mural is also placed there along with shade trees and benches. The remaining three sides are brick and baby blue-painted wood in reasonably well maintained shape. This building was used as a supermarket in the 1950s. Do we give up on other older buildings next?

Actress Farrah Fawcett, who was launched into instant pop culture stardom in 1976 with a best-selling wall poster and a featured role in the ABC series Charlie's Angels, is dead at 62. She was a TV presence in our lives right to the end. Fawcett, who battled cancer for several years, was seen last month in an NBC documentary that she produced herself and helped tape with a digital camera. The film, Farrah's Story, which chronicled her struggle with the disease, was a ratings success for the network, and she vowed to continue with a second TV documentary.

River Hill running back and linebacker Jason Fawcett is built like a front-end loader -- compact and low to the ground.Add to that physique the mental toughness that believes the bromide, "no pain, no gain," and you have the ingredients of one rugged football player. And wrestler. And lacrosse player.For now, the 5-foot-9, 190-pound senior is concentrating on getting his Hawks into the Class 3A state football playoffs and winning a county championship.Either would be quite an accomplishment for a fourth-year program.

A young publicity photographer shows up on Mulholland Drive with his '37 Chevy truck and Nikon-F reflex camera to shoot pictures of an angel in a rusty red swimsuit. She chose a one-piece. When she smiles, 32 teeth radiate at an inviting angle. When she tilts her head, flips of hair gather on her tan shoulders - a look that would launch a hairstyle fad for a generation. In the time after Betty Grable's World War II pinups and Marilyn Monroe, before the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue mania and Pamela Anderson, the original swimsuit poster of Farrah Fawcett ruled gym lockers, offices and bedrooms.

For the third time in four games, Wilde Lake defeated a league-leading team yesterday. The Wildecats, behind clutch fourth-quarter shooting from Chad Fawcett, knocked Mount Hebron out of first place, edging the visiting Vikings, 56-53. No. 20 Wilde Lake (10-3 overall, 7-2 league) remains in a two-way tie for first place with Centennial at the halfway point of the league season. Fawcett, an All-County point guard who sat out most of the third quarter in foul trouble, sank two three-pointers and went 4-for-4 at the foul line in the fourth quarter, including two free throws that put the Wildecats ahead 56-53 with 16 seconds left.

The pressure was on River Hill's 189-pound wrestler, Jesse Fawcett. The junior needed to pin Howard opponent Joe Sedilko to give River Hill a one-point victory over Mount Hebron at the 33rd annual Howard County Championships last night at Centennial. Sedilko had taken Fawcett to double overtime earlier this season before Fawcett won. This time, second-seeded Fawcett pinned fourth-seeded Sedilko with a cradle move at 4:33. And River Hill completed an unlikely 14-point comeback in the finals to claim its second straight county championship, 242-241.

Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen is hoping to resurrect a redevelopment proposal for a key waterfront property in the state capital. On Monday, the prospective buyers of the former Fawcett Boat Supplies building on Compromise Street said they were walking away from their deal because they were frustrated with strident opposition they encountered from a newly-formed group called Save Annapolis. But Cohen said on Friday night that he's convinced Save Annapolis members to agree to "come to the table" to talk about their concerns.

Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen has harsh words for activists who drove a prospective waterfront developer out of town. Mark Ordan, CEO of Sunrise Senior Living, was leading a group that planned to buy the vacant Fawcett Boat Supplies building at City Dock and replace it with a two-and-a-half story building set back from the water. Ordan walked away from the deal on Monday , citing strong and vocal opposition he encountered. Cohen, who was pushing for a zoning change to enable the redevelopment, blasted opponents of the plan, some of who organized recently as the Coalition to Save Annapolis . In a 629-word statement issued at midday Tuesday, the mayor said the coalition refused to work with Ordan's team and instead "chose obstruction.

I've been following with great interest the rezoning of the Fawcett building site at the city dock and the corollary issues addressed in the City Dock Master Plan ("Coalition forms to fight rezoning for Annapolis City Dock area," June 25). When I heard that the Save Annapolis Coalition was holding a press conference on the issue, I pulled up the ordinance and reread it so I could attend their event and fully understand their position. At the press conference, I heard some very concerning points raised by many of the coalition's speakers, but they differed so widely from my understanding of the ordinance that I reread it again.

A vacant building in a prime location at Annapolis City Dock is about to be sold. An investment group led by Mark Ordan, CEO of Sunrise Senior Living, has signed a deal to buy the former Fawcett Boat Supplies building at 110 Compromise St. The building sits in a key spot in downtown Annapolis and will figure into the city's plans to redevelop the City Dock area. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, and Ordan said it won't be final until the proposal passes a five-month study period "to make sure we have the support and cooperation of the city and the various constituents.

It was nine years ago to the day that Survivor: Borneo debuted on CBS, ushering in a new era of reality TV as the dominant form of prime time network and cable programming. Remember Richard Hatch, the naked contestant known as "the snake"? Since that first summer, critics like me have been wondering how far we as an audience would let the voyeuristic cameras go before we decided we'd had enough. Obviously, we have yet to hit that wall. But it appears that without much notice, we have entered a new and darker realm of the genre in recent weeks - one that is making some viewers feel a little queasy.

As an undersized freshman, River Hill's Jesse Fawcett made the 189-pound weight class, "No problem." But the past two years, "I had been really struggling." "After lifting and playing football in the fall, I'd come in at around 210 or 220. I could get down to weight, but it was hard to stay down. I lost strength: My bench press dropped from like 270 to below 240," said the senior, winner of last year's 189-pound Howard County title. "At the end of last year, I knew I'd have to move up to heavyweight this year because I just couldn't do it [189]

An encounter with the undead ... paparazzi Woody Harrelson is likening a paparazzo he tussled with at a New York airport to one of the undead zombies he battled in his most recent film. In a statement released Friday, Harrelson jokingly compares the scrutiny of the paparazzi to his being "constantly under assault by zombies" in his upcoming film, Zombieland. Celebrity gossip site TMZ posted a video on Thursday of Harrelson chasing one of their photographers, who followed the actor and his 12-year-old daughter through New York's LaGuardia Airport.

The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon By David Grann Doubleday / 352 pages / $27.50 For each summit reached or Machu Picchu-like discovery, the history of exploration marks more deaths and failures than can be counted, armies of men after whom nothing was named, who spent their lives chasing after the unnamable. The Amazon - biodiverse, so unknown, so full of life while having obliterated so many explorers - has been, for many, that singular, unconquerable thing.
