The wonderful McKeldin Fountain at Baltimore's Inner Harbor was running beautifully recently. The site was clean thanks to a team of workers, and there were several families there enjoying this important architectural landmark with its bridges, waterfalls, sculpture and passageways. I can't understand why The Sun is refusing to cover the controversy over losing such an important structure. The city plans to remove this piece of Baltimore history to replace it with nothing but grass.

I love "Breaking Bad," and even I didn't think it would win as big as it did Monday night at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. Best drama, best actor (Bryan Cranston), best supporting actor (Aaron Paul), best supporting actress (Anna Gunn) and best writing (Moira Walley-Beckett). Did show runner Vince Gilligan & Co. ever go out on a high. And it is all the more impressive when you consider the incredible level of competition for each of those awards. I picked it as best drama, and I picked Gunn and Paul as best supporting actress and actor.

Vincent Mario "Vince" Rallo, a former banker who in retirement took over Rallo's Restaurant, a Locust Point landmark since 1941, died Thursday morning of lung cancer at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. The longtime Homeland resident was 79. Rallo's, in the 800 block of E. Fort Ave., was established by Mr. Rallo's father, Louis Rallo, an immigrant from Sicily who settled in Baltimore in 1910. The restaurant was known for its generous breakfasts that included scrapple, an old-fashioned menu staple, as well as bacon, sausage, corned beef hash and sizzling ham. There were heaping portions of beef or chicken stew, lima bean and pea soup, fried crab cakes, chili con carne, Spanish omelets, braunschweiger sandwiches, and sour beef and dumplings.

You may have heard that Ocean City boardwalk landmark Ocean Gallery is packing up and moving to Hollywood, but don't book that flight to Los Angeles quite yet. Owner Joe KroArt explains that he's been in talks for nearly five years with various television producers in an effort to create a reality TV show centered on the gallery. After going back and forth with a number of pitches, one idea kind of floated to the top: a show that would follow his team as they relocated the beloved 50-year icon from Ocean City to Hollywood.

Four years and $11 million later, Stephens Hall, the distinctive building that defines Towson State University, is open again for academic business. This majestic, 91,000-square-foot structure, complete with clock tower and an ornate, English manor architectural style, sits majestically on a hill overlooking York Road. For countless motorists and alumni, Stephens Hall is Towson State.But the 1915 edifice was sadly in need of repair and modernization. An entire class of TSU students never set foot in the massive hall during their undergraduate years.

City College has been designated a "Historic Landmark" under a bill signed by Mayor Sheila Dixon. City -- the third-oldest public high school in the nation -- opened in 1839 and has been at its current location since 1928, according to city officials. "`The Castle on the Hill,' as City College is known, is truly a historic landmark," Dixon said.

Defying Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake and city redevelopment officials, Baltimore's preservation commission voted Tuesday to add the former Read's drugstore to the city's "special list" of landmarks, an action that protects the building from demolition for at least six months. Baltimore's Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation voted 7-1 to grant temporary landmark status to the city-owned building because it was the site of a 1955 lunch counter sit-in that had national significance in the U.S. civil rights movement.

The rush to landmark a group of 1820s rowhomes to save them from demolition falls under the heading of "better late than never." But the last-minute city effort underscores the need for Baltimore preservationists to take the initiative in protecting the city's architectural heritage. The list of significant buildings that lack local landmark status may surprise you: the Hippodrome Theater, Camden Station and the Woman's Industrial Exchange, to name a few. Their prominence protects them, but there are other lesser-known buildings whose futures may be far less certain.

The Landmark Theatres Harbor East will host an invitation-only benefit screening Oct. 30, offering friends and supporters of the Baltimore School for the Arts the chance to sample Charm City's newest movie showplace three days before its official opening. Although finishing touches have yet to be added to the building at Aliceanna and President streets, plans still call for the seven-screen theater to open to the public Nov. 2. But don't expect a big, splashy opening night. A Landmark spokesman said no festivities are planned, though some CDs and swag associated with the opening-night movies will be given away.

The Valley Inn, a landmark property on Falls Road near the city-county border, is back in business. Now operated by Ted Bauer, owner of the of the popular Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley, the Valley Inn has been revealing itself, quietly, in stages. First came a clubby bar, which opened in late January with an introductory menu of sandwiches and bar snacks. In late February, a traditional, wood-paneled dining room began serving a full dinner menu. Bauer acquired the Valley Inn in 2011 from John "Bud" Hatfield Jr., whose family had operated it for nearly 90 years.

In the span of four days, Goucher went from absorbing the disappointment of losing to Landmark Conference rival Scranton to having the last word. After an 8-7 setback to the Royals on Saturday that prevented the Gophers from capturing the regular-season championship and the top seed in the league tournament, they returned the favor by knocking off Scranton, 8-4, in a tournament semifinal Wednesday night. The biggest difference, according to Goucher coach Brian Kelly, was the team's improved effort on defense.

In a nip-and-tuck game that wasn't decided until the final seconds, Goucher dropped a frustrating 8-7 decision to Landmark Conference rival Scranton on Saturday at Gopher Stadium in Towson. The reward for both teams is that they will meet in three days in a league tournament semifinal on Wednesday. The difference is that the Gophers (6-7 overall and 4-2 in the conference) will be the away team as they take to the road against the Royals (10-6, 5-1). Goucher went from potentially capturing its sixth consecutive regular-season title and the top seed to the No. 3 seed, but coach Brian Kelly pointed out that the team still has a chance to extend its season.

Goucher owns a slight 5-4 edge in its series against Landmark Conference rival Scranton and has won the last two meetings. The Gophers have won four consecutive games at home after dropping their first two, while the Royals are 4-3 on the road but have lost two of their last three away from Fitzpatrick Field in Scranton, Pa. Scranton (9-6 overall and 4-1 in the league) have lost two of their last three contests. The defense has been anchored by sophomore goalkeeper Nicholas McKaba, who ranks 16th in Division III with a 6.58 goals-against average and has recorded a .569 save percentage.

Chalk one up for the public. Passage yesterday of Maryland's landmark health-care reform package would not have been possible without the widespread public concern over the high cost and inadequacies of this state's medical delivery system. The package enacted in Annapolis is far from perfect, but it gives Maryland a giant head start on the health-care changes that are likely to come from Washington later this year.In a sense, legislators are taking a chance that some of these steps will save consumers money and also give Marylanders better medical care.

Goucher's five-year reign as the Landmark Conference regular-season men's lacrosse champion came to an end when the Gophers fell to visiting Scranton, 8-7, at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Saturday. The loss was doubly damaging for Goucher (6-7 overall, 4-2 Landmark), which went from potentially being the top seed in the conference tournament to finishing as the No. 3 seed. Susquehanna (9-7, 5-1) — which claimed last year's tournament crown and edged Catholic, 7-6, in overtime Saturday — captured the regular-season title for the first time in school history and will have home-field advantage in the tourney.

When Goucher and Scranton play on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Gopher Stadium in Towson, the winner will capture the Landmark Conference regular-season title and earn the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the league tournament. The Gophers (6-6) and Royals (9-6) are 4-1 in the conference, but only one will sit atop the league. Coach Brian Kelly said it's nice to know that neither team has to worry about tiebreakers or potential seeds. “We've got a lot to play for,” he said Thursday.
