The entire story revolved around Frank and Geno's flashbacks, making everything one- dimensional. I almost didn't want to write this recap, but I have hope in future "Sunny" episodes. So in this week's recap, we'll try to highlight the best of it.

The Thunder Hill Park Alliance, a nonprofit group formed in 2003 to encourage protection and thoughtful development of the Smith property, has elected officers and a board of directors. The 300-acre site in the middle of Columbia was purchased by Howard County government and the state after the death of its owner for development as a regional park. After hiring a consultant with grant funds supplied by the Horizon Foundation, the Thunder Hill Park Alliance decided to advocate developing the land as an interactive nature park with a children's adventure area, protecting specimen trees, flora and fauna and the wildlife movement corridor within the site.

Two men convicted of killing a former city councilman during the robbery of a Northeast Baltimore jazz club were sentenced Tuesday to life in prison plus 30 years. A third defendant received a 65-year term. Jerome Williams, 17, and Charles Y. McGaney, 22, were given life terms for their convictions this month on charges of first-degree felony murder, assault and other counts in the 2008 robbery during which Kenneth N. Harris was killed. A legal expert said that given their murder convictions, Williams and McGaney are unlikely to be paroled unless the governor approves — a rare occurrence.

In the 1930s and 1940s, Baltimore had a rich, flourishing jazz scene. Today, live jazz and devoted jazz clubs are scarce. But the owners of a new club located in a threadbare West Baltimore commercial district are hoping to help rekindle the city's once-dynamic jazz legacy. "We think Baltimore can be a major city for jazz," said Errez Segman, co-owner of the forthcoming venue, Back Alley Jazz. "We want our club to be a household name for live jazz and fine dining, and we think Baltimore's the right city for that."
