Tucked between Towson's York and Joppa roads, among four-square and hopscotch courts, Immaculate Conception School's parking lots teem with parents in station wagons and minivans awaiting their clamoring children Fridays after dismissal. In the late 1990s, a hulking motor home, with a 20-foot trailer holding four dirt bikes in tow, indiscreetly joined those ranks. And an adolescent Justin Boston, focused on the weekend ahead, would climb in and get to work. “We would stick out like a sore thumb,” Boston said.

After Janet Jackson's bare breast made a quick appearance during the Super Bowl half-time show back in February, as America watched two aloof, moneyed men run for president, pop artists moved in divergent directions in 2004. Either they adhered to a somewhat conservative approach, incorporating safe, classy elements into their image and music (think Alicia Keys, who straightened her hair, put on some heels and crooned over pseudo-classical piano runs; and Kanye West, who rocked a white suit and rapped about Jesus)

What does country music star Loretta Lynn's Grammy-nominated album have to do with the Baltimore Sun? The clue is its title, Van Lear Rose. The "rose" refers to Lynn's late mother, Clara Marie Butcher Webb. Van Lear was the place, along Miller Creek in Eastern Kentucky's Johnson County, where Lynn's father, Melvin "Ted" Webb, worked in the coal mines for many years. Here's where the Sun connection comes in. Van Lear, founded in 1909, was named for Van-Lear Black (1875-1930), a Sun publisher and chairman of the A.S. Abell Co., then the owner of the Sunpapers.

It doesn't take too many listens to "The Secret of Life" to hear how much Gretchen Peters enjoys her work. Whether she's luxuriating in the lush melody of "Looking for You," conveying the emotional tension of a foundering family in "This Uncivil War," or offering a merrily rocking character sketch with "A Room With a View," it's clear that she loves singing her own songs.What she has trouble with is the idea of handing those songs over to someone else. For her, having another singer record one her songs is kind of like seeing one of her kids brought up by some other mother.
