Baltimore set a record low for the fifth time this month early Wednesday morning, ahead of a gradual warm-up with highs in the lower 80s. Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport dropped to 55 degrees, the fifth time this month a record low was tied or broken there. The previous record low for Wednesday's date was 56 degrees, set most recently in 1997. Sunshine is forecast to help warm temperatures into the upper 70s by midday and lower 80s in the afternoon.

It's shortly after 1 p.m. on a Saturday in Druid Hill Park. Several dozen young people, many decked out in trim-fitting athletic gear, gather under a pavilion. A plastic storage bin is stocked with cans of Miller Lite and Bud Light. Two grills are smoking burgers and hot dogs. Justin Timberlake's song "Mirrors" mixes with picnic table chatter as a Frisbee zings back and forth during a game of Polish horseshoes. These people have all volunteered to have a good time. Since last February, Volunteering Untapped has held a volunteering event every month with a nonprofit, immediately followed by drinks and networking.

MARYLAND'S LOW-INCOME housing market is headed into a crisis: Nearly half of 35,000 low-income units statewide may be lost in the next four years because their owners are thinking of quitting subsidy programs. Owners can make more money by charging market-rate rents, which are soaring, or by selling the buildings. The result can be seen in Baltimore City: 43 percent of tenants with Section 8 vouchers cannot find qualifying apartments or landlords willing to accept them. In coming months, the situation is only likely to grow worse as the pool of low- income housing shrinks.

About 30,000 low-income Marylanders, half of them in the Baltimore region, have signed up for $10-a-month Internet service, Comcast officials said Monday as they promoted broadened access to the program, now in its fourth year. The Philadelphia-based cable service provider revealed the figures at an event at Baltimore's Digital Harbor Foundation, an after-school program it is working with to help close the digital divide. Comcast is giving the foundation free Internet service and donated more than 50 laptops to students at the event, attended by Gov. Martin O'Malley and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

The Calverton, a four-story, 13-unit rehabilitated building on East 25th Street, opened its doors this week to women who cannot afford market-rate housing. It's about time.Sponsors of the $630,000 project expect a diverse mix of tenants, ranging from women with physical or mental disabilities to battered wives, the homeless and minimum-wage workers. All will earn less than $7,900 a year. Temporary housing options exist for such individuals, but many find themselves back on the streets when the time limit runs out. Some are even less fortunate: In a random sampling last November, Action for the Homeless found that 43 women were turned away for emergency shelters.

Research on low-carbohydrate diets has yet to produce a conclusive medical recommendation. Scientific literature supplies material that affirms advocates and opponents, although the preponderance of evidence doesn't support low-carb diets. The Journal of the American Medical Association, for instance, last April published a review of more than 30 years of relatively short-term studies of low-carbohydrate diets. Low-carb advocates like to talk about how the report seems to answer the criticism that the relatively high-fat regimen poses a risk of cardiovascular disease.

A 35-degree low at Baltimore-Washington International Airport yesterday morning set a record - the fourth in as many days at BWI this week. The old record for the date was 42 degrees, set in 1968. Only one other four-day stretch of record cold survives in the official records for Baltimore, which began in 1871. That was a chilly four days from Aug. 28 to Aug. 31, 1986, when the lows ranged from 45 to 49 degrees. The current span of record cool mornings began Sunday, when the 40-degree low tied a record set in 1956.

Even though he was a child during rock 'n' roll's hedonistic late '80s, Jack Barakat hopes to inject the same party-hard attitude into the Fells Point bar scene. The 26-year-old guitarist of All Time Low — which started in Towson and has blossomed into one of pop-punk's most known bands — is now a co-owner of The Rockwell, the bar-lounge hybrid that originally opened as Vale Tudo last November. (The name change, which became official in June, aims to better reflect the rock vibe, according to management.)

When the bar Vale Tudo changed its name to The Rockwell in June, part of the reason was to have a name better reflect the club's "rock 'n' roll image. " Now, it can count a rock 'n' roll figure as an owner. Jack Barakat of All Time Low, the pop-punk quartet from Towson, recently became a co-owner of the Fells Point bar, according to the band's manager Keith Lazorchak.  Barakat spoke to the magazine Alternative Press , who first reported the news, about why he wanted to become a co-owner: " There haven't been that many bars I go that have a rock 'n' roll vibe like there used to be, kind of a craziness to them.

Candidates for governor in Maryland's June primary spent a record of almost $25 million - paying roughly $35 for every voter who showed up at the polls. Campaign finance reports filed with the State Board of Elections this week show that the primary's cost exceeded the total spent during the primary and general election four years ago by more than $2 million. As Democrat Anthony G. Brown continues to raise money apace and Republican Larry Hogan has $2.4 million in public financing, they appear on track to shatter the record $33 million spent on the gubernatorial contest in 2006.

Congratulations to Howard County for trying to figure out sensible speed limits ( "Are Howard County's speed limits too low?" Aug. 5). While it's a shame that the company contracted to study the issue messed up, similar studies should be required throughout the Baltimore area. I'd also like to congratulate Maryland's law enforcement personnel. Many times a driver I know has driven 65 or 70 mph on Maryland 295, I-95, or Route 100, and he has never been bothered by police or state troopers.

Are Howard County's speed limits too low or too high? That's one question some county officials hoped to answer when they reviewed a report of speed camera data from their vendor, Xerox State & Local Solutions. Traffic engineers have attempted for decades to set reasonable speed limits by analyzing traffic flow, setting the limit at the 85th percentile speed of vehicles on the road - meaning 15 percent of drivers travel faster than the limit. The thinking goes that drivers set a natural limit based on perceived risk.
