The 140,000-square-foot Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management will include a lecture hall and classrooms, as well as hotel rooms and a large kitchen for hospitality classes. The building, which is expected to be completed in the summer of 2014, is the first of three planned for land where a vacant hardware store stood most recently.

Life was just less complicated on a quiet Saturday when my mother rounded up her children and shepherded us on a quick trip to the railroad station. No rides, no souvenirs, no lunch, just a little city trip. Our destination was the Hillen Station, the downtown Baltimore terminus of the old Western Maryland Railway, founded 150 years ago - and whose birthday is being celebrated this weekend by the B&O Museum in Southwest Baltimore. That museum is displaying a newly restored diesel engine that might well have been sitting on the tracks that Saturday in the 1950s.

He could not comment on their condition. Approximately 15-to-20 people working in the plant at the time were evacuated, he said. Baltimore City firefighters and HAZMAT workers capped the leak, which Kocher said appeared to be caused by a faulty cap on one of the plant's out-of-service filtration cylinders.
