Baltimore City plans to help corner stores in West Baltimore stock healthier fare, and get kids and their parents interested in buying it, as part of an effort to reduce childhood obesity. Though on the decline among young children nationally, obesity remains a major problem in U.S. cities such as Baltimore, where about a quarter of students are excessively overweight and potentially at risk for lifelong health problems. Officials at the Baltimore City Health Department have identified limited access to low-cost and appealing healthy food as a barrier to reducing obesity and have worked to reduce the number of "food deserts" in low-income neighborhoods through programs such as a virtual supermarket that allows participants in public housing and elsewhere to order healthy food online for delivery.

Where does a highly acclaimed Baltimore chef like to escape when she has the opportunity to temporarily hang up her apron? If you are Cindy Wolf, there's no better place than Paris. As often as possible, Wolf sneaks away to "the world's best food city" to gain new inspiration for her Baltimore restaurants, Petit Louis Bistro, Pazo, Cinghiale and Charleston. She first visited Paris, briefly, in 1985 while on a backpacking trip. She returned for her honeymoon in 1994 and has been going back ever since.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - Winston Cup driver Sterling Marlin remembers when his father, Coo Coo, raced at Bristol Motor Speedway two decades and more ago. The track was flat. Fewer than 25,000 people were in the stands. The cars weren't nearly so equal. The winner's closest challenger was sometimes two, three laps behind. Now, they race bumper to bumper. Breathe one another's exhaust. Have every move scrutinized by 160,000 pairs of eyes in the grandstands and a national television audience. In the pits, crew chiefs smile as their drivers gasp breathlessly in their ears.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - Jeff Gordon seems to have an innate ability to come through when the chips are down. Winston Cup observers are speculating on Gordon's slow start this season and pondering his emotional state as he deals with the fact that his wife of seven years has sued him for divorce. Gordon, however, showing no signs of distraction took his Chevrolet onto Bristol Motor Speedway's tricky half-mile oval on a cold afternoon yesterday and won the pole for tomorrow's Food City 500 with a track-record run of 127.216 mph. "This is gratifying," said Gordon.

BRISTOL, Tenn. - Second-year driver Kurt Busch had never won a Winston Cup stock car race before, so when he beat veteran Jimmy Spencer to the finish line yesterday in the Food City 500, he treated it like a short-track victory on a Saturday night. Busch stopped his Rubbermaid Ford at the start-finish line, climbed out on to the window frame and bowed to the crowd of 160,000 that encircled Bristol Motor Speedway's half-mile racetrack. Then, he surprised everyone by jumping off the car, running toward the flag stand and waving to the flagman to throw him the checkered flag.

Though it's nearly freezing outside, fresh arugula, kale and more greens are flourishing in Hoop Village. That's the name given to Baltimore's newest urban farming venture - a trio of plastic-skinned hoop greenhouses on the historic Lake Clifton schools campus. The structures, finished in October, are already yielding harvests that will provide wholesome snacks to some city elementary students this winter. And students at the three Lake Clifton schools are helping to raise the food they'll be eating.

Leon Nelson wore his hair in long braids. He had been all over the region, riding alongside his father, who drives a bus for a living. He once played high school football and wore a white tuxedo to his junior prom. He was one of three people shot in a Chinese carryout on New Year's Day, and after spending three hours at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, he died of his wounds - becoming the city's first homicide victim of the year. At 17, he was also the first juvenile to be killed. "He was a kid with ambitions and a lot of dreams," said Steven Montgomery, a close friend of the family.
