Lauren Williams and her father unbox the treasure: a three-wheeled cycle, powered by the arms. Larry Williams adjusts the footrests and affixes Lauren's feet with Velcro straps. Lauren, 26, narrows her eyes in determination, pushes one pedal with her right hand, the other with her left, and rolls away at a good clip. Her father, a baseball coach, watches her go. "If I had a team full of players like her, I could own the world," he says. For other young adults, a new bicycle might mean an opportunity to shed pounds, travel sustainably or just get out in the elements more often.

Parks define a city. Great cities have great parks and public spaces, and Baltimore has a rich variety - from breezy Federal Hill to the diverse pleasures of Druid Hill to the paths of Leakin Park. In a few weeks, an extraordinary new venue will be added to Baltimore's rich collection. The Mount Vernon Children's Park, designed by landscape architecture firm Floura Teeter as an "oasis within the city," will be opened to the public. Construction of the park, squeezed into a narrow sliver of city-owned land at the northeast corner of Calvert and Madison streets, has been funded by foundations, corporations, local businesses and gifts from neighborhood residents.

Kurt Vonnegut, the gentle humanist who challenged Americans to be true to themselves and mistrust technology, wealth and the arrogance of power, died last week, possibly with a bemused appreciation of the fact that all of the ugliest aspects of popular culture he challenged for more than half a century appeared to be thriving. The author of 19 novels and an array of plays and short stories, he struggled to make a living as a writer of science fiction until the success in 1969 of Slaughterhouse-Five, a fictional treatment of his survival as a prisoner of war during the tragic and senseless Allied bombing of Dresden late in World War II. An estimated 135,000 people died in the Dresden firestorm.

"I'd like to thank Larry [Burnham] for having a great condition on lanes 23 and 24," Larry Martin said.Larry Burnham is the lane man at Fair Lanes Ritchie, and lanes 23 and 24 are special to Larry Martin. And, yes, it's very unusual for any bowler to compliment a center for having a great shot setup in the house.But then, it's extremely unusual for a bowler to fire two 300 games on the same lanes in the same tournament on the same day.That's exactly what Larry Martin did on July 18 in the Fair Lanes 28th annual Washington/Baltimore Doubles Summer Tour at Fair Lanes Ritchie on lanes 23 and 24: He shot two 300 games on back-to-back squads that Saturday evening.

OCRACOKE, N.C. -- Ocracoke Island has long been separated from the rest of North Carolina by two things: the waters of Pamlico Sound and the islanders' brogue, echoing the speech of the early English settlers.Older islanders have their distinct pronunciations, turns of phrase and rich vocabulary. Their vowels clang together with a bell-like quality; their sentences contain relics of early English such as an extra "a" -- as in "The stars were a-shining."Their daily speech retains a few words long since vanished from mainstream English, such as "mommuck" ("to bother")

There's no piece of machinery more powerfully attractive than a railroad locomotive and no better place to savor the romance of these technological marvels from an earlier era than at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. The museum, on a 40-acre yard in Southwest Baltimore where American railroading was established in 1827, has long been a must-see destination for rail fans. In 2003, the extraordinary B&O collection of locomotives and cars, the heart of which was assembled for the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago, was endangered when heavy snow collapsed the roof of the cathedrallike Baldwin Roundhouse.
