Sade Baderinwa came into Edie House's life when she was 4. House remembers the little girl's navy blue and red dress with white piping, her saddle shoes and Afro. Sade couldn't pronounce House's name. She called her "Edick." Soon enough, though, the child would ask, "Edick, can I call you Mom?" Today, Baderinwa, a WBAL anchor, is on the threshold of a promising television career. Proudly watching from home is House, former WBAL anchor and public affairs manager. As a child, Baderinwa spent many hours with House in the television newsroom.

I could not believe it when I read that Baltimore City is rehabbing four homes on Preston Street with $1.9 million in taxpayer dollars ("Is this house worth $475K?" June 19). The government, as The Sun put it, hopes to spur development there. But if it doesn't work — which it won't — how about paying us back? How many more times will this type of insane rehabbing be allowed to go on at taxpayer expense? Darlene McKinney

Will someone please explain why former Obama cabinet members like Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton feel they have tell the world about things that make him look incompetent? How does this do anything to improve on the image of our country around the world, and why does this kind of behavior have to occur just after such people quit or resign? Why can't they at least wait until the president is out of office, as officials formerly did? A similar problem afflicted President George W. Bush, where he was made to look like the village idiot by the liberal media.

Over the objections of Republican lawmakers, the House of Delegates on Friday approved Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill to create incentives for development of a wind energy project off the coast of Ocean City . The measure, a top item on O'Malley's legislative agenda, was approved 85-48. Its passage was not a surprise because a similar bill passed the House last year only to die in a Senate committee. This year, the bill's prospects appear much better in the upper chamber. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller has predicted it will pass.

Aya Dixon, 15, has dreams of working for a top design house before eventually branching off to create her own line of couture. Up until now, her only brush with that industry was thumbing through glossy magazines or watching reality shows on television. That changed Wednesday when the Baltimore Design School sophomore got a chance to mingle with the likes of Anna Wintour, popular designer and "Project Runway" judge Zac Posen and other big names in the fashion industry. Dixon was part of a group of 10 students from Baltimore Design School who attended the White House's first Fashion Education Workshop, led by first lady Michelle Obama.

In search of a sustainable art medium, visual artist Kara Brook bought a beehive six years ago so she could use beeswax to paint. She quickly discovered that those same bees could be the source of a sustainable business as well. She started packaging the honey and then expanded into making what she calls “bee-inspired products.” Today, Brook collects honey from her 18 hives on her 102-acre Kent Island farm to produce home and beauty products, including candles, soaps, exfoliating scrubs and lip balms.

At age 100, the commercial building at 120 W. North Ave. has enjoyed prosperity and suffered humiliation. It's now soon to become an arts center in the Station North neighborhood, whose transformation I've been watching for the past few years. Perhaps its worst hour happened in 2012, when the Fire Department ordered it closed. Inspectors took one look at the outdated 1914 wiring and said, "Shut it down. " Its main tenant, the Single Carrot Theatre , promptly moved out. "The electrical box was like something out of a Dr. Frankenstein movie," said Laurens "Mac" MacLure, director of the Baltimore Arts Realty Corp., who gave a tour of the roomy structure this week, as his group has been completing plans for a $6 million upgrade.

Moving Gov. Martin O'Malley one step closer to a long-sought victory, the House of Delegates gave preliminary approval Wednesday to legislation intended to foster development of an offshore wind industry off Ocean City. The legislation advanced after delegates decisively rejected a flurry of amendments by Republican opponents of the measure, who objected to subsidizing the emerging industry. O'Malley contend the measure would help diversify Maryland's electricity supply, promote the use of renewable energy and create jobs.

The city expects a flood of applications when it opens the wait list for Section 8 housing vouchers this month for the first time in more than a decade. Housing advocates say 50,000 families or more might sign up for a lottery to fill 25,000 places on the Housing Authority's wait list for the tenant-based housing choice vouchers. The coveted federal subsidies help families pay the portion of their rent that exceeds 30 percent of their income. The vouchers can be used to rent any residence, subject to a cap. In Baltimore, that is roughly $900 for a one-bedroom apartment.
