Recently, I visited the Inner Harbor and heard the laughter of children. I stopped by the Walter Sondheim Fountain and, lo and behold, there were children frolicking through the water. I sat a while, and after seeing how much fun it was I decided that I would bring my grandson the next day I picked him up on Thursday and told him that I was taking him to the Inner Harbor. He said, "Oh, no grandma. People get shot and stabbed down there, and I am afraid. " I told him not to be because there won't be such large crowds as on holidays, nor would there be a lot of drinking and shouting and bad people.

A familiar process plays out each time you see the descendant of a baseball legend in an obscure minor league ballpark. It's something both observers and the player himself have to deal with - the realization that he is not his namesake, then the understanding that such a standard is unfair and, finally, an appreciation for all the things the new generation does well. Orioles minor league outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, grandson of Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, has dealt with it all, and now he is earning notice for more than just his name.

An elderly woman who was severely injured by her 14-year-old grandson in an attack with a hammer in March has died from her injuries, police said Thursday.  Shirley Garrett, 67, died over the weekend at Union Memorial Hospital, according to police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. She was repeatedly struck in the head with a hammer on March 31 by her grandson Hassanhii Garrett, who told police that he had become angry at her while getting ready for school.  He called 911, and police responding to the home in the 800 block of E. 34th St. found her face-down on the floor in a pool of blood.  The boy, who had no previous contacts with the juvenile justice system, was charged as an adult with attempted murder, but the case was remanded to juvenile court in August.

I have yet to see anyone bring up that many of the "gifted" children do not do well in a traditional classroom because they are seen as different - as strange little nerds who think differently - and frequently have difficulties because of this ( "Keeping Baltimore afloat," May 6). This changes when they are in a class with others like them. They discover that they are not alone in the world. Lasting friendships blossom and school is no longer hated. These children are bonded across economic and ethnic lines because of what's in their heads.

Sam Saunders had 265 yards into an 18th green protected by everything but angry alligators. So, naturally, he took out his driver rather than playing it safe. Saunders hit into a bunker, leading to a bogey-6 on Sunday at the Honda Classic. But here's guessing his coach didn't mind. That man's name is Arnold Palmer . Saunders is his grandson via Palmer's youngest daughter, Amy . Palmer became rich and famous with his go-for-broke mentality, and Saunders earned some attention - plus more than $68,000 - by tying for 17th at the Honda.

My wife has left me for a short, bald guy who giggles when you blow raspberries on his tummy. Now, how can I compete with that? Apparently, according to recent studies, people aren't getting married like they used to. And please don't tell me "No one's going to buy the cow if they can get the milk for free. " I never did get that expression. Who wants to marry a cow, anyway? Besides, I've been going to the grocery store a lot lately, and the milk is anything but free. If companionship, the concept (if not always the reality)

Leon Day would not have minded seeing his grandson with a baseball in his hand. A book in his hand, however, would have impressed him more. "He always told us: 'Pick up a book and read. Get an education; they can't take that away from you. Knowledge is power,' " recalled Sarah Newkirk Clark, the daughter of the Hall of Fame pitcher and Negro league legend. Clark's 15-year-old son, Leon Day Newkirk, seems to have absorbed the lesson. He frequently picks up and reads honor-roll certificates, academic awards, college scholarship offers, and, last month, an invitation to attend the annual National Young Leaders Conference this summer on Capitol Hill.

On the night of Nov. 9, 1938, a well-orchestrated anti-Jewish pogrom erupted throughout Germany and Austria. Synagogues, businesses and homes were attacked, lives were lost. The vicious destruction continued into a second night. The amount of broken glass afterward led to an infamous name for the incident - Kristallnacht. Through the shards could be detected the seeds of the Holocaust. This Saturday, 75 years after Kristallnacht began, an opera about the legacy of the Nazi era will be performed in concert form at the Music Center at Strathmore . "Lost Childhood" has a libretto by Baltimore poet Mary Azrael and music by New Jersey native Janice Hamer.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Just before Wednesday's workout began at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex, Orioles manager Buck Showalter called for 10-year-old Johnny Oates II and his younger brother Jackson to hop the fence and join the team on the field. The siblings quickly sprinted to Showalter, who introduced them to the players circling around, most of them starters. That's when Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts spoke up. “Let's show them what we have in common,” Roberts said with a smile before both he and Johnny lifted their shirts to reveal large vertical scars along the middle of their chests.

Two special fundraisers took place at the Port Deposit VFW Post 8185 last weekend. In the big hall was a "celebration of love and support" for the Kessler Family, featuring several bands, a silent auction, raffles, food and door prizes. The proceeds of that 12-hour fundraising marathon will benefit local wounded veteran, Jeffrey Kessler. Jeffrey will soon move into the home provided for him by Homes for Our Troops, but donations of materials plus private and corporate monetary funding is still necessary to make his home a reality.
