Maryland Community Kitchen's "2001 Fall Gala" had all the earmarks of an earlier elegant era. It began with a pre-party reception at the 1906 Mt. Vernon town home which serves as home base for Kirk Designs. Party-goers -- fully decked out in sophisticated cocktail attire -- swept through the marble-floored, rosewood-paneled foyer into several parlor rooms that boasted elaborate plaster relief ceilings, gilt wallpaper, and ornate crystal chandeliers. There, they were greeted by event chair Kevin Bareham, who expanded upon the evening's 1930s theme by wearing white spats with his tux. Across the street, "An Evening At The Chanticleer" was in full swing.

HAUSSNER'S restaurant, the Southeast Baltimore landmark that closed last year with a great crescendo of civic sadness and an eye-popping art auction, could be busy again soon - but don't expect to have lunch there. Maryland Community Kitchen, which prepares and delivers thousands of free hot meals to homebound low-income Marylanders with HIV or AIDS, might soon move its operation into the vacant Highlandtown restaurant. The agency won't serve meals on site but will package and deliver them from there.

No one denies Maryland needs a highly skilled workforce to compete successfully in the 21 s t -century global marketplace. So at first glance it may seem like a bad thing that enrollments in the state's community colleges have fallen sharply over the p ast three years. In fact, however, the decline may reflect good news for the state's economy because enrollment trends at community colleges often run counter-cyclical to economic conditions. During the last recession, people who couldn't find employment enrolled in community college to improve their credentials and job prospects.

Here at the editorial board of The Sun, we like to give Columbia a little good-natured ribbing from time to time. James Rouse's planned community has gotten enough critical accolades in the national press since its opening in 1967 - for its efforts at integration of races and classes, suburban amenities like pools and paths and even its stab at interdenominational harmony with shared "interfaith centers" - that we assumed it could handle a few laughs...

Col. Brian Foley has taken command of Fort Meade at a challenging time for the U.S. military. With the end of the war in Iraq in 2011 and the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan next year, growth in defense spending was already expected to taper. Then came the sequester, the across-the-board cuts that led the Pentagon to furlough civilian employees over the summer. Fort Meade grew rapidly in the 2005 round of the base realignment known as BRAC to became the third-largest base in the Army.

The streets in Baltimore's County's Halethorpe have always gotten me twisted into pleasant knots. This unincorporated community looks like a life-size Baltimore Christmas garden, with whistling trains passing the tidy bungalows, front porches, and lilacs and crape myrtles. I'll confess to low (none, really) resistance to the sound of a train.

The Orioles have been losers the last 14 years. They'll crash any day, you say. They have a lot more winning to do before you'll buy a ticket and cheer for them. But do you remember the last time you tried to change your losing ways? Bet it wasn't easy to break a habit. This year the O's are magical and fearless. As the classic underdog, they are a formidable force for justice for the little and forgotten people. They win games that confound the most knowledgeable baseball fan. Players with minuscule batting averages hit home runs.
