Early on, Friday night's food truck rally looked like a washout, but once the rains stopped, the crowds came. Organizers estimate that as many as 2,000 people came through the Gathering at some point. Then, the only problems were long (and confusing)  lines and early sell outs. The tweets I saw were all positive, though, and the food-truck operators are all already gearing up for another rally next month, which they may have to find a bigger lot for. Baltimore photographer Marty Katz sent along his walk-through footage from Friday night's Gathering.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  FLORILEGIUM Florilegium  (pronounced flor-uh-LEE-jee-um) is one of those gather-ye-rosebuds words. From the Latin flos , floris , "flower," plus legere , "gather. " It indicates a gathering or collection of brief extracts or writing.  It is thus a fancy word for "anthology," though the emphasis is on short items rather than a bulky compendium.  Example: Garry Wills, who thought Daniel Patrick Moynihan a poseur, says this in an article collected in Lead Time (2004)

Defense attorney Russell A. Neverdon Sr. filed Wednesday to run as a write-in candidate for Baltimore state's attorney after a city judge issued a ruling that kept his name off the ballot. The only name that will be presented to voters in the Nov. 4 election is that of Democratic nominee Marilyn Mosby, an insurance company attorney and former prosecutor. In a video posted to his Facebook page, Neverdon urged his supporters to continue backing his candidacy. "My name will not appear on the ballot, but I am a candidate for the office," he said.

There is nothing definite, but there is in the works a gathering in memory of the restaurateur Morris Martick. The plans, in these early stages, would involve a mid-morning weekday gathering at the Charles theater, followed by a reception at the Metro Gallery. This would happen sometime in January, possibly sometime around Jan. 18, when Martick, who died last Friday, would have celebrated his 90th birthday. Details about a formal funeral service, if there is one at all, have not been made public.

The U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit that officially opened today in Washington is as notable for what isn't on the agenda as for what is. The meeting between President Barack Obama and more than 40 African heads of state has been billed as forum for talks on security issues, foreign investment and economic development on the continent. But so far, at least, the recent outbreak of deadly Ebola virus in three African nations has remained absent from the official agenda. Mr. Obama needs to take this opportunity to strengthen cooperation between the U.S. and its African partners in efforts to bring the epidemic under control and provide the resources needed to prevent its spread.

Veteran defense attorney Russell A. Neverdon Sr. brought about 6,000 signatures to the city's Board of Elections on Monday - a total that, if verified, will put him on November's ballot as an independent candidate for Baltimore state's attorney. With his family by his side, Neverdon, 46, pointed to the petition effort as evidence his candidacy has grass-roots support. "We've spent sleepless nights, long weekends, long days," Neverdon said.

Alice Johnson noticed the checker boards that recently popped up behind her house, a neat brick rowhouse in the Barclay neighborhood of Baltimore. "People will definitely use them," she said. "I play. I wish I could play chess, too. " She should have time to learn. The boards have been etched permanently into 1,000-pound slabs of marble in a new community courtyard. The stones are salvaged steps from several area houses, and the artist who placed them in the courtyard hopes they become a new kind of Baltimore front steps - where urban dwellers have long gathered, told stories and played games.

On the steamy second floor of Adrian's Book Cafe, strangers fan themselves and talk aimlessly about the unexpected burst of summer heat. It's all small talk, subterfuge really, for what's truly on their minds. Those gathered here - from the clean-cut Catonsville couple to the ribald divorcee - harbor one unyielding thought: Sex.Before the night ends, they will speak of it. The secret urgencies and cries of love, rain-swept sheets and ripening fruit. The great beast within? It will come out, in conversation at least, and the unleashing will make them laugh and fidget, stare dreamily at the ceiling tile and applaud - out of relief and satisfaction - when it's over.

Two dozen volunteers were on their hands and knees Sunday morning, harvesting abundant greens or bagging them to give away in a Baltimore neighborhood where both healthy food and money are in short supply. Thanksgiving was on some of their minds, but the effort is about far more than eating well on one day of the year. Gather Baltimore, the fledging group that organized the rapid harvest, does this work every week - collecting food that would otherwise go to waste and distributing it in city neighborhoods.

In a narrow hallway on a high shelf, a sign sits next to an intricate wreath of looped vines, feathers and dried flowers. “Flowers feed the soul,” it says.  That hallway divides the front and back rooms of Natural Gatherings, Rick and Jane Barger's shop on Main Street in Bel Air. For the Bargers, that message rings true.

Walter T. "Lucky" Stankowski, the retired owner of a Fells Point tavern and package-goods store known for its Saturday afternoon music-making sessions, died of cancer June 17 at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The Highlandtown resident was 89. Born in Baltimore on Eastern Avenue, he was the son of Walter Stankowski, who owned a family bar, and the former Vera Litwinski, a homemaker. "He got the name Lucky because when he got into little situations, he would always get out," said his daughter, Margaret Harrison of Ocean City . Mr. Stankowski attended St. Stanislaus School and was a 1943 graduate of Patterson Park High School.
