Are you kidding me? The city's tourism agency, Visit Baltimore, is running a $500,000 campaign to lure visitors (and their wallets) to Baltimore. And the best slogan they could create is "Find Your Happy Place"? Really, are you kidding me? I wish Visit Baltimore would have approached me with an offer of endless cups of coffee and a comfortable workspace for one hour. I guarantee I could have come up with a more lucrative and creative slogan in that time frame. In the meantime, let's all put on our smiley faces and tweak our dimples with our index fingers while we all shout in unison, "Find Your Happy Place"!

Ahead of new rules requiring chain restaurants to post calorie counts for their menu items, some of the restaurants are voluntarily introducing lower calorie selections. The new items tend to be salads rather than the main attractions such as burgers and pizza, but they contain an average of 60 fewer calories or a reduction of 12 percent, researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found. The researchers looked at new menu items in 2012 and 2013, ahead of new rules to offer the public nutritional information required by the Affordable Care Act. And they said the results, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, could be the beginning of a trend in calorie reduction at fast food restaurants that aids the obesity epidemic.

A state legislative auditing report found that Anne Arundel and Carroll community college were carrying several million-dollar, unrestricted-fund deficits in fiscal year 2013 related to future expenses for retiree benefits. The Office of Legislative Audits on Wednesday released the findings as part of a 10-page report for fiscal year 2013 from audits at 15 state community colleges. The report said AACC incurred a $13.9 million deficit in unrestricted funds, or money in a general fund that is not tied to a specific purpose.

In the company of Dan Snow, a dry-stone waller from Vermont, rebuilding, an often painful proposition, is as natural as breathing. It is his job to take geological rubble and render it into walls, fences, terraces, sacred grottos and delightful follies. The boulders, slabs and stones Snow uses are often recycled from structures built more than a century ago to mark boundaries and keep livestock within pastures. He uses no mortar. Instead, Snow manipulates stone with a hammer and chisel to make a snug fit. It's an apt time to speak with Snow, and to read his book, "In the Company of Stone: The Art of the Stone Wall" (Artisan, $35)

It's a Sunday afternoon, and all along our street, fathers and sons are dutifully putting up their holiday decorations. Surely, the NFL's Nielsen ratings have taken a brief dip. It's not clear whether every son is there willingly. But somebody has to steady the ladder and listen to the cursing as each Dad tries, usually without success, to find the one dead bulb amid the 200 mini-lights. How else is a youngster to learn? My son, Daniel, is exactly 6 3 / 4 years old and this is the first year of his apprenticeship.

Help wanted: The shrinking unemployment rate is making it harder for employers to find the workers they need. In a survey of chief executives of fast-growing companies, Coopers & Lybrand, the accounting and consulting firm, found 47 percent were having a hard time finding skilled, trained employees. The skills most needed -- and the hardest to find -- were in information technology, including programmers and systems and networking specialists. Salespeople with experience in specific industries were also hard to find.

Michael Phelps was largely forgiven for driving drunk near Salisbury University in 2004 because he was 19 years old. The charge was reduced to driving impaired, his record ultimately wiped clean by the courts. Five years later when a photo of him inhaling from a water pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana hit the Internet, he apologized again, and that incident blew over quickly as well. But what happened early Tuesday morning outside the Fort McHenry Tunnel was different. The man who possesses the most Olympic medals of any athlete in history failed a Breathalyzer test.

From: Lodi, Calif Price: $14 Serve with: Beef short ribs, lamb shanks This full-bodied red wine packs a flavorful punch, even if it isn't the most elegant cabernet in California. It offers a full measure of cassis, black raspberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of chocolate cake and coffee. This is not a wine to serve with rack of lamb or beef filet, but would make a wonderful match with some of the less-exalted cuts of red meat. There's lots of burly charm here at an excellent price.

Pet owners used to have just a few options when their animals went missing: Call animal control, call the microchip company or turn to an animal psychic.  In the Mid-Atlantic, we can add a fourth to the list: Call a dog. Dogs Finding Dogs, a nonprofit organization of highly trained tracking dogs and handlers formed in 2008, stands ready to assist with the search.   “We find anything that walks on the ground. We can't do birds, and I won't do snakes,” states Anne Wills, founder and executive director of the Halethorpe-based group.

Industry growth and a tide of employee retirements in Baltimore's transportation sector will create or leave open thousands of jobs by 2020, but local job seekers aren't prepared to fill them, according to a study released Monday by the Opportunity Collaborative. Low-income residents lack the needed technical training or have criminal records that make them ineligible for the jobs, according to the study by the coalition of state agencies, local governments, universities and nonprofits tasked with plotting a course toward sustainable economic growth for the Baltimore region.

TORONTO - Even though Ubaldo Jimenez 's first season in an Orioles uniform has been a rough one, the right-hander believes he has made strides in his last few outings. Jimenez said a slight tweak in his delivery has made his unconventional mechanics a little smoother. Instead of moving his hands completely over and behind his head while in the windup, he's raising them just in front of his head, which he said allows him to drive to the plate better and see his target more clearly.
