A series of occasional articles exploring destinations that are easily reached via nonstop flights from Baltimore. Flying to the West Coast for vacation isn't often ideal for Baltimoreans. It can be difficult to find nonstop flights, and it's almost always a pricey venture. But that all changed this month when Alaska Airlines launched reasonably priced, nonstop service from BWI-Marshall to Seattle. Despite its rainy reputation, Seattle is an ideal destination during the months of September and October, when the summer crowds have dissipated and chances for sunshine remain high.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is right. We will not succeed in growing Baltimore's future by "thinking small" but by building "projects that will sustain Baltimore well into the future" (" Moving Baltimore Forward ," Aug. 29). The mayor proposes that designing a great transit system will be one of the cornerstones of a sustainable future for the city. We agree. There is also another cornerstone critical to the vibrancy, the life and the perpetuity of Baltimore and all great cities: its cultural "bones" - the richly layered accumulation of historical experience, knowledge and creative accomplishment that together form the unique identity, the persona, of a place.

The couple walked into Kent Island Jewelry first. She wore dark sunglasses, scrubs and a stethoscope draped around her neck. He was well-dressed and meticulously groomed. Trailing them was another man, in work clothes. He was looking for something special for his mother's wedding gift. "He ran me all over the store," shop owner Patricia Clowd recalled. Clowd and police now say the hunt for the perfect gift was a distraction, providing the dapper Robert Weathers an opportunity to grab a tray of diamonds from an unlocked case.

When you call 911, you want to speak with a dispatcher as soon as possible. But what if, at that moment or in general, you aren't able to speak at all? This past week marked a deadline for phone carriers to be able provide text-to-911 service in areas where dispatchers are ready to receive the messages, according to the FCC. In Maryland, the state wants those capabilities to come online in all jurisdictions at once and is anticipating that it will be ready in four to six months. "It's an aggressive timetable, but it should put Maryland as a statewide leader in the country," said Gordon Deans, executive director of the Emergency Number Systems Board, the state office overseeing the program.

I've been waiting 36 years for the phone call that came this week.

North Ave., at 10:30 a.m. Monday to celebrate the announcement, which will help finance the planned renovations.

Killer Mike is unimpressed with the recent trend of rappers name-dropping painters to signify wealth and status. The 38-year-old Atlanta rapper was an "art student nerd" in high school, so hearing Jean-Michel Basquiat's name turn into a rap cliche grates him a bit. "I'm not mad that people are getting exposed to art," said Killer Mike, who performs with El-P as Run the Jewels at 9:30 Club on Saturday. "But real artists, from Michelangelo to Picasso, hated rich people. They hated their benefactors.

Many of Annapolis' established downtown interests seem to reflexively resist change. Annapolitans even have a name for it: the Downtown "No" Club. The latest version of this "No" Club is the self-described Coalition to Save Annapolis, an unusual alliance of United States Yacht Shows, the Ward One Residents Association, the Annapolis Business Association, Historic Annapolis Inc. and others. These groups are united by their opposition to a rezoning ordinance I introduced to implement Phase One of a City Dock Master Plan that has been more than two years in the making.
