A few years ago, when Andrew Coy was a teacher at Digital Harbor High School, he offered his students a chance to learn Web design. He quickly realized those sorts of extracurricular activities were lacking, even at the tech-savvy institution in Federal Hill. Now Coy and a team at the Digital Harbor Foundation are working to create more of those opportunities for hundreds of students across the city each year. For the past year and a half, they've been doing it just blocks from Coy's old classroom, at a former city recreation center on Light Street.

Cal Ripken Jr. and Eddie Murray were back together again Friday night. Jokes were cracked and smiles were frequent as the former teammates reminisced about being raised "the Oriole Way," and talked about the resurgence of an Orioles franchise they expect to contend again in 2014. Murray was honored by Ripken and the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, along with Japanese baseball legend Sachio Kinugasa and New Jersey high school basketball coach Bob Hurley Sr. But as Murray and Kinugasa joined Ripken at a press conference announcing the honorees, Murray joked, "You people just came to see him. " Murray and Kinugasa, who flew in from Japan for the foundation's 10th annual Aspire Gala, were the men of the night, though, not Ripken, who said he chose Murray because he wanted to celebrate both his "special relationship" with Ripken's father and his Hall-of-Fame career.

According to coach Ed Hottle, Stevenson's best start in school history has been a long time coming. It's also a product of inspired play by the defense. Through four games, no opponent has scored more than 19 points in a single game against the Mustangs, who are tied for 12th in Division III in points allowed (9.8), rank 18th in yards surrendered (247.8), are tied for fourth in interceptions (nine) and eighth in takeaways (12). So how does a defense that in 2013 allowed 24.2 points and 370.2 yards per game and collected 11 interceptions among their 17 takeaways improve so dramatically?

Collaboration is the word of the year in the Baltimore restaurant scene. Every month delivers new announcements about good-natured cooking competitions or chefs "popping up" in one another's restaurants. Baltimore's chefs work hard in their own kitchens, but they also have a great time getting out and playing with the rest of the local culinary community. Over the past few years, chefs say, as the city's food scene has blossomed, so have their relationships. For a handful of Baltimore chefs, the root of those friendships is in volunteering.

I applaud the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners, elected officials at every level of government, and our school families and communities for their staunch support of city schools throughout the education reform process in Baltimore.

The Baltimore-based Annie E. Casey Foundation is out with its 25th Kids Count data book, measuring the wellbeing of children nationwide across a variety of health, economic, educational and community measures. In some ways, kids are much better off than they were in 1990, when the first book was published, and in some ways they are faring worse. For the good, we can credit a number of wise public policy efforts over the last generation, and for the ill, we can blame macroeconomic and social changes for which we have been unable - or unwilling - to mount a policy response.
