Wayne and Wende Allen found a second home, their vacation escape, in a convenient location - 24 miles from their Harford County home.

On Wednesday, Baltimore will relaunch its publicly owned TV station, shifting its focus from broadcasts of government meetings to CharmTV, a showcase for city restaurants, businesses and neighborhoods.

An extensive publicity campaign from the Mayor's Office of Cable and Communications promises a fresh slate of four locally produced prime-time programs equal in quality to those seen on the Food Network or HGTV, showcasing "all that is proud, inspiring and authentic" about Baltimore food, nightlife, neighborhoods and history.

Finally it's spring. That means baseball, hay fever and the start of painting season. "May through September are the biggest months for paint sales," says Mark Sposito, vice president of marketing for Sherwin-Williams' Eastern Division.

Soon the plant will be working around the clock on weekends as well, says plant manager Mike Levitsky.

Getting a new home – whether it's a house, condo or an apartment — is usually pretty cut and dried. You go to an office, sign paperwork, and the place is yours. No big deal, no fanfare. When Deborah Robertson got the keys to her new condo — a 35th-floor luxury unit in the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago — it was a big deal. Three TV crews, reporters, photographers, family members and dozens of well-wishers were watching. Robertson, of Baltimore, was the winner of HGTV's Urban Oasis contest.

It was Monday, after work, and Deborah Robertson had chased her sister, Nellie, out onto the front porch of the house in Edmondson Village that they share. "She smokes and I don't, so she has to go outside," said Robertson. But soon enough, her sister was tapping on the window and motioning Robertson outside. There was a television crew coming down the street toward their house. "I said, "Oh my, I think they are here for me,'" said Robertson. "She didn't believe me. " It was interior designer Vern Yip and a crew from HGTV's Urban Oasis contest, a sweepstakes that offers a dream home as the grand prize.
