This is not a column about the 10th anniversary of the National Aquarium. From fish, I know only from herring with maybe a garlic bagel on the side. From the aquarium, I know only from $11.50 tickets."

Most of the upgrades at the two-building BECO Towers complex in Owings Mills are pretty standard: new windows, functioning elevators, an updated heating and cooling system. Then there are the fish tanks. The roughly 1,000-gallon aquariums, which BECO Management installed last month in the lobbies of both Mill Run Circle buildings, cost about $100,000 each. They required the commercial real estate firm to reinforce the floor and replace its cleaning supplies with fish-friendly materials.

Its pyramid-shaped rooftops help define the city skyline and are as much a symbol of the new Baltimore as white marble steps, hard-shelled crabs and decrepit docks were of the old. As the countdown continues to its 20th anniversary Wednesday, the National Aquarium in Baltimore welcomed the 30 millionth visitor yesterday to its submerged world of kaleidoscopic colors and seldom-seen species. That milestone, marked by considerable fanfare, equates to nearly six times the state's population -- not bad for a building that was derided as a mere "fish tank" when it was proposed but quickly became a cornerstone of the city's Inner Harbor revival.

Wait, I thought the Governor was supposed to be some super a-hole, like in the comic books, where he was a raping, murdering, torturing psychopath? In Sunday night's episode of The Walking Dead , we finally meet the gov', and he comes across as a stand-up dude, at first. He brings Andrea and Michonne into his charming little town of Woodbury (population 73, soon to be 74), sees to it that Andrea gets medical treatment for her persistent flu-like symptoms, sets them up in a nice little bed and breakfast room with running water, peaches, bottled water and fresh clothes, and feeds them strangled eggs and mystery tea. He even offers them food, ammo, meds and a new car if they insist on leaving!

There may come a time when it's considered perfectly normal for a bride and groom to take the plunge, matrimonially speaking, in a 335,000 gallon fish tank, the way Abbe Click, 27, and John Harman, 25, plan to do tomorrow night at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.But it's probably not wise to hold your breath waiting for a trend to develop in fish-tank weddings -- at least not at the aquarium.Granting approval for the underwater wedding, says Amy Woodworth, the aquarium's public relations coordinator, is "most likely a one-time thing" and "our way of saying thank you" to Ms. Click and Mr. Harman, both volunteer divers.

Mia is 15, all elbows and anger, going at her life in a rundown apartment complex as if it were one long skirmish in British filmmaker Andrea Arnold's exceptionally well-crafted drama, "Fish Tank." The film features newcomer Katie Jarvis, whom the director first spotted fighting with her boyfriend on a train station platform. The 17-year-old so completely captures the innocence, cynicism and rage of a child of poverty and divorce on the edge of adulthood that it feels as if you are spying on Mia, so achingly real, so tangible does her world seem here.

He was supposed to be in Florida right now, prepping with his teammates for a weekend basketball showcase. Instead, the team flew south Thursday afternoon without their 6-foot 5-inch forward, who was a "beast" on the court, his brother said. "He had french fry fingers," Walter Rogers, 19, said of his little brother, Marcus Harvell. His fingers were so long and skinny, he could grip a basketball just with his fingertips, he said. Basketball was his life. Harvell, 18, was a city basketball standout.

I suppose it doesn't do any good to say that Tiger wasn't really a bad sort, although that's hardly a glowing testimonial now that he's no longer, um . . . with us. Look, it was an unfortunate accident. One minute he was swimming along merrily past the fake white seashell and miniature sunken schooner in his little tank, and the next minute he . . . wasn't.It happened that fast. In the blink of an eye, really.As to the circumstances surrounding Tiger's death, there's really no need to get into all that.

At the risk of ticking off the fish crowd, let me say that I don't recommend fish as pets unless you're looking for an animal that's cold, indifferent and adds absolutely nothing to your life -- in which case you should probably get a cat.That business about ticking off the fish crowd is not said lightly, either.A few weeks ago, for instance, there appeared in this space a story about a gang of thuggish raccoons that had been ravaging the garbage cans outside my house.Despite the calm and reasoned slant of the column -- I didn't like what the raccoons were doing, but I never advocated grabbing a .22 or anything -- a few nuts wrote in to complain that I was anti-raccoon.

This week, I attended two events within two hours - and two miles - of each other in the two Baltimores. Yes, one was in the middle of the Baltimore of glittering waterfront development and the other in the Baltimore of depressing urban decay. But the contrast was deeper than that. One was of a vision exceeded; the other, of a concept just now showing nascent signs of being realized. At noon Tuesday, I went to a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the opening of the National Aquarium - and a dedication of a new waterfront park in front of its entrance.

A dozen rays jostle for attention each time Carl Perkins enters the tank, their flat bodies undulating on the exhibit floor. "They all get right around my feet like puppies and nudge me as if to say, 'Feed me first,'" said Perkins, the new principal of Centennial High School and a volunteer diver at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. The six species of rays, some of which can grow to be 7 feet across and weigh close to 500 pounds, are "a lot of fun," he said. Three dozen of them inhabit the Wings in the Water exhibit, sharing the space with two sharks and a turtle.

I started my tomato plants indoors three weeks ago in a fish tank covered with clear plastic. Inside stays moist and 60 degrees, but some plants are falling over. Though seeds need moisture to germinate and grow, too much moisture leads to fungal disease. The three most common disease fungi are known collectively as "damping-off." They attack the stem and roots, making the seedlings fall over and die. Remove the dead plants immediately so they don't spread the disease. (Always start with sterile potting soil.

SYLVA, N.C. -- Another noon hour is drawing to a close at the small radio station beside the railroad track, 680 on the AM dial, your home for today's hits and yesterday's favorites. Listeners have heard the news, weather, sports and a reminder to visit Andy Shaw Ford, across from the Wal-Mart. It's time again for that thousand-watt form of communion, Tradio. The host, Dennis the Menace, leans toward the microphone the way he might to confide in his life's companion. His voice, chain-smoker deep, assumes the broadcasting cadence that tries to evoke folksy familiarity but somehow comes out sounding like God trying hard to just shoot the breeze.

IF YOU THINK the current hotel issue is a civic firestorm, either you haven't been around or you've forgotten how we do things in this town. Almost nothing built with public funds over the past 40 years has enjoyed popular support at inception. Everything's been a fight. Baltimore has been pulled kicking and screaming into almost all its public- private projects.Take the National Aquarium. The bond issue (''Question C'') was put on the ballot in the 1976 election, but it had been hotly debated as far back as the 1960s.

ATLANTA -- Bernie Marcus says he never much cared for fish, not until he decided to build an aquarium. The 76-year-old billionaire, who made his fortune after co-founding Home Depot Inc., has invested $250 million in the biggest fish tank on the planet. The Georgia Aquarium - which opened to the public yesterday - features the largest single tank in the world and four additional water exhibits that together will hold more than 120,000 fish in 8 million gallons of water. It will showcase 500 species and is the first aquarium outside Asia to display whale sharks, the biggest fish in the world.

Baltimore police announced yesterday the breakup of a "major" drug organization whose members allegedly hid several kilograms of cocaine in electronically operated compartments, including two concealed by large fish tanks. Police said they have arrested Eddie Harley, 31, of the 1600 block of N. Gay St., and Shamell Meadows, 25, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and charged them with possession with intent to distribute drugs. "This was a large-scale operation," said Maj. Anthony G. Cannavale, who heads the department's drug unit.
