Are consumers getting tired of jeans? One retail analyst thinks so. Changing the color and fit used to be enough to prompt shoppers to go out and buy something new, but "the lack of any real innovation in jeans has created consumer fatigue," Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst for The NPD Group, says in a blog post today. Sales of jeans, which performed well through the recession, fell 5 percent for the year ending in March, Cohen says, with declines of 4 percent for men's jeans, 5 percent for women's and 10 percent for kids.

If walls could talk, Capt. John Steele, along with two others, would have a tale to tell about the home he built circa 1788 in the Fells Point neighborhood. In Baltimore Heritage's "Baltimore Building of the Week" series, John Breihan wrote about this shipbuilder's residence, citing its design "with the dormer windows and high-relief moldings characteristic of English Georgian architecture. It was lovingly restored and adapted for modern living by the Hepner family. " In 1967, the home's tale became that of Jean Hepner's transformation of a condemned and crumbling structure to a magnificent restoration.

Somewhere among the nearly 500 pairs of donated jeans and khakis that drape the corridors of Wilde Lake High School are a pair with a display of rhinestones on blue denim. Wilde Lake senior Tyesesha Beasley was more than willing to give them away. "My mother bought them, and I don't like jewels on my jeans, so I said, 'Let me give them to someone who will wear them,' " said Beasley, among scores of students who have taken part in the school's Teens for Jeans project. As an effort to promote schoolwide charity, Wilde Lake High students chose the project, part of a national outreach effort that encourages students to donate trousers for students at area homeless shelters.

In its opening last weekend at Bowie Playhouse, 2nd Star's production of Ray Cooney's "Funny Money" had audiences in stitches - as this farcical show has done since its 1994 London premiere. Cooney has written 22 plays over the past 50 years, perfecting a formula that usually includes a middle-class businessman falling into an improbable situation surrounded by characters who become entangled in increasingly confusing events - often involving a series of mistaken identities. Many of these hallmarks are present in "Funny Money," in which accountant Henry Perkins picks up the wrong briefcase on the train and discovers a huge amount of money inside instead of his gloves and scarf.

A federal judge ruled Thursday that an exotic dancer at a nightclub on The Block, Baltimore's strip-club district, worked as an employee, not an independent contractor, and should be paid back wages. Unique S. Butler of Owings Mills, who worked for tips at Norma Jean's from 2007 until August 2012 when she said she was fired, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in February against the club and its owner, PP&G Inc., accusing the club of refusing to pay wages. Butler, who used the stage name Dior, said she worked seven-hour shifts up to seven nights a week and had to pay a $45 fee to the club each day out of tips and an additional $20 if she was late, the complaint said.

As a young girl, Jean Brinton Jaecks would sit around her family's dinner table in Severn and listen to her parents talk about nature, light and color. Her mother, Mary, was a painter; her father, Earl, created wood sculptures as a break from his job as a designer at Westinghouse. "Back in the 1960s, they began an organic garden," Jaecks recalls. "In 1961, that was unheard of. The neighbors made fun of them. " Love of the outdoors and the arts were reinforced during summer vacations, when the family would drive to Cape Ann and Rockport in Maine.
