I was a member of the graduating class of 1972 at Cardinal Gibbons. What an incredible time to be a teenager in the late '60s and early '70s for many reasons. I was so proud when I received my acceptance letter to attend an all-boys Catholic high school with such a great reputation. In looking back, they were the most formative years of my life. I will never forget the values we learned there. I will also never forget playing junior varsity and varsity baseball on the same field as Babe Ruth.

Don Scott will sign off for the last time Friday morning at WJZ -TV after 40 years at the station. Tens of thousands of Baltimore viewers have started their day with him for the more than three decades that he's been at the station's morning anchor desk. That's a run not likely to be duplicated by many in the new media world. And WJZ has consistently finished at or near the top of the ratings during that time. I talked with the 64-year-old broadcaster this week about his final days on the air in Baltimore.

T housands of people skipped work and some even kept their kids home from school. In a chilling January rain, they lined downtown streets and sank into the mud of Memorial Plaza - all for a glimpse of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, a silver obelisk with the power to warm Baltimore's collective soul. All of those kids and many of their parents were too young to remember the city's last Super Bowl win, 30 years earlier. With the Colts long gone, the city needed another hit of victory, craved it - a jolt of civic pride, an affirmation, a legacy.

The Little Italy restaurant formerly known Germano's Trattoria is now Germano's Piattini. Germano's was doing just fine as a trattoria, the owners said, but they wanted to keep one step ahead of changing tastes. So they revamped just about everything. The main dining areas in the restaurant were renovated last fall, and the menu was given a nearly complete overhaul. But really, the restaurant's whole approach to dining has changed. Dining at Germano's Trattoria was always a commitment to a full dinner, your basic Little Italy package of appetizer, entree and bottle of wine.

Today is my last day at The Baltimore Sun. It's been an amazing 12 years at this newspaper. I started here as an editorial assistant on the business desk. I covered business news for years -- from the fall of Bethlehem Steel to the rise of Millennial Media. I also spent several years covering Baltimore's police department and crime. Along the way, I grew incredibly interested in technology, from the gadgets and Internet services that were changing my profession to the people and companies that were on the cutting edge here in Maryland.

It's been a good run as the real estate wonk -- five years of blogging and even longer writing stories about the never-dull housing market -- but the time has come to pass the baton. Colleague Steve Kilar, who's been covering commercial real estate, is taking over residential as well. Which should make life easier for the poor souls who, in years past, were never sure which reporter to contact about mixed-use developments. It will also mean a broader array of real estate news and tidbits on both this blog and the @RealEstateWonk account on Twitter, which Steve is also taking over.

More than 1,000 mourners gathered Wednesday at the U.S. Naval Academy chapel to say goodbye to Midshipman Hans P. Loewen, remembered as an adventurous, vibrant, funny man whose company mates summed him up in a phrase: "Live like a warrior. " Loewen, 20, of Hampstead, N.C., a midshipman third class majoring in oceanography who was planning to graduate in 2016, died March 29, a week after a skateboarding accident at Assateague State Park left him in a coma. He was the third midshipman to die this year - one was killed in an accident and another, an academy football player, collapsed last month on a practice field suffering brain swelling and bleeding; he died three days later.

Zachary "Zach" Lederer used to say he was "living the dream. " Even as his physical health deteriorated in the final year of his life, he told others he felt fantastic. Hundreds of people gathered Friday afternoon to remember the former manager of the Maryland men's basketball team, who died March 11 of brain cancer. The 20-year-old inspired cancer patients across the globe with his signature pose of pumping his fists with flexed biceps - a move that the crowd gathered at the Church of the Resurrection mimicked together in the pews during his memorial.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland's departure from the Atlantic Coast Conference hit a lot of longtime Terps fans hard this weekend. Many who have been coming here for years and witnessed two of the school's three ACC tournament championships, in 1984 and 2004, were sad to say goodbye to Greensboro Coliseum. Me, too. After spending years covering the Big East Conference tournament at Madison Square Garden, I felt like the Eddie Albert character on the '60s sitcom “Green Acres” when I went to cover my first ACC tournament, in 1986.

Rose lovers, I come to you with good news: The season is over and we never have to see El Bachelor Juan Pablo again. Things certainly have changed since “Juanuary” when we were so excited to join Juan Pablo on his “adventura.” What we didn't know was that “adventura” meant “journey taken by a rude, arrogant, egotistical, racist, cocky, douchebag, lying, hypocritical, self-centered, offensive jerk. " Before we return to St. Lucia and bring this train wreck to a close, Chris Harris reminds us that this has been one of “the most dramatic and surprising finales” in "Bachelor" history.

Welcome back to the final installment of my blog for The Baltimore Sun surrounding the Grand Prix of Baltimore. I hope you were able to get to the race and enjoy yourself while you were here. I met a lot of people who were doing just that. It was a crazy race, for sure. There was a lot of bumping and banging and running into other people. I took us out of the race early when I got the No. 20 Ed Carpenter Racing Fuzzy's Ultra Premium Vodka Chevrolet into the tire barrier on Lap 11 and we lost a lap to the leaders.

On my first night in Baltimore in 1981, in keeping with my adventurous and highly sophisticated palate, I took my wife out for pizza. We were at this place in Towson and I was reaching for a slice of pepperoni with my fat little fingers when there was a rustle at the next table. I glanced over and my eyes nearly popped out of my head. There was the great Johnny Unitas having dinner with his family, helping one of his kids cut his food. "It's Johnny Unitas!" I whispered to my wife.

The Village Flower Mart went out of business Saturday afternoon, after 45 years at 3601 Chestnut Ave., just off The Avenue in Hampden. “It's time,” said owner Cheryl Zetlmeisl,cq 64, of Parkton, who retired and has sold the building. She would not identify the buyer and said she did not know what the 2,200-square-foot space would be used for. “Forty five years on the same corner - you don't see that much anymore,” said her son, Paul Zetlmeisl, who used to be a “flower jumper” in his youth, jumping out of the store van to deliver flowers.
