Q: I want to convert a seldom-used family room into what I've heard referred to as a "media room." Can you give me some design tips? Also, where can I get information about the electronic accessories for such a space? And, I wonder if built-in speakers are still popular.A: A so-called media room is a late-20th century phenomenon. It's usually outfitted to function as a sort of mini-entertainment center, complete with sound systems, video installations, computer games and, for those of us who still read, an array of bookcases.

At the front entrance of the house at 11743 Springhaven Court is a stone wall with the word "Haleakala" on it, which in Hawaiian means "house of the sun. " The owner of the house in Ellicott City has ties to Hawaii, according to Keller Williams agent Bob Lucido, who has listed the property for a June 21 auction. Lucido calls the Craftsman-style home "a truly one-of-a-kind masterpiece," built in 2009 by architect William Douglas Beims. A gated entrance leads to the house located on more than 7 acres in Ellicott City's Farside Community," Beims said.

The Winter Meetings are officially underway today in the Music City, with everyone from baseball executives, agents, media members and job seekers wandering the halls of the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. As advertised, this place is humongous. There are five different lobby areas here, but most people have cavorted toward the hotel's main entrance. I've finally found a shortcut to that lobby from the media room. Over the course of the next two days, every manager will have a media session here in the media workroom.

You should have seen Chad Bradford throwing batting practice yesterday. That submarine-style led to some ugly swings from Nick Markakis. "I know when he was with Oakland, I hated to see him come in," Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo said. "He's one of those guys that you take a comfortable 0-for, you go back to the dugout shaking your head. We just hope that he does that for us." Once again, Miguel Tejada stayed on the field long after the workout ended, this time running up the bleachers as part of his fitness training.

Set on more than 8 acres and with more than 11,000 square feet, this house is the place for a party. That's one of the things that appealed to homeowners Tim and Meg Evankovich, who bought this Howard County estate a little more than two years ago. "Tim is an entertainer," Meg says. "We've had 100 to 150 people [over] and you don't get the sardine effect. It's a party house." The main hallway with its marble squares inset into oak floors and multidimensional framework and moldings connects sprawling wings that provide perfect gathering spaces.

To come upon this house perched on a magnificent peninsula overlooking the Magothy River is to recognize one architect's homage to the context of place.The architect, Leo D'Aleo of D'Aleo Inc., formerly Meyers & D'Aleo Inc., was so taken with the site when he first saw it that he declared, "If we'd had our druthers we wouldn't have wanted any house there at all," although he had something else in mind.He says, "The concept was to create what I refer to as minimal architecture. Everything fades away but the view.

Every week, the opposing team makes available a player to be interviewed by Baltimore media via conference call. On Wednesday afternoon, Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas was the interview participant. Towards the end of the conference call, Ravens free safety Ed Reed made his way through the media room at the team's practice facility in Owings Mills. After finding out from public relations coordinator Tom Valente that Thomas was on the phone, Reed jumped in. “Hey, Joe, how you doing?

The Ravens are expected to be relatively quiet at this week's owners meetings at the posh Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, Fla., and that's almost certainly a good thing. That's because these meetings will be dominated by talk of the fallout of Bountygate with the New Orleans Saints, along with continued dialogue about the salary cap penalities leveled against the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys. I arrived at the media room about 45 minutes ago and there is already a full-fledged media stakeout outside awaiting the arrival of Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis.

When children grow up and leave home, many parents decide to do the same. For empty-nesters Laurie and Robert Weitz, the decision to start over has been a positive one. The self-employed couple, ready for a change from suburban Lutherville, headed south toward Baltimore's Inner Harbor, where they found Federal Place, a development of 26 five-story brick townhouses overlooking Key Highway. "We wanted to downsize [and] enjoy a city lifestyle," said 54-year-old Laurie Weitz. "We wanted to be able to walk to restaurants and the stadium."

What do you do after you've married off your daughter, watched her glide down your oak-floored foyer's sweeping Gone With the Wind staircase and through the glass-paneled double doors? Well, if you're Sharon and Bob Yellon, you sell the house. No, not to pay for the wedding, but to move on to other challenges - and other homes. The Yellons built this custom, executive estate home off Falls Road in 2005. It's not the place where they raised their family, but it is the place that upped their interest in planning and designing new homes.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- In a world where celebrity breakups have become a staple of both the grocery-line tabloids and the network magazine shows, I guess it was only a matter of time before this run of interpersonal superstar dysfunction would find its way to baseball. If you haven't been paying close attention, it's only the biggest story of spring training. Alex Rodriguez acknowledged this week that his relationship with teammate Derek Jeter has cooled over the past couple of years.

Sometimes walking down memory lane makes a man feel 10 feet tall. "Everything looks so small," muses Todd Randolph, as he winds his way through the corridors of Garrison Middle School in West Baltimore, "because when I was here before I was so small." He's now Captain Randolph, age 35 and fully grown, a 16-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Dressed in a cool black jumpsuit. Wearing black shoes spit-shined so bright they twinkle. Randolph is one of 12 officers assigned to the flying Thunderbirds, that crowd-pleasing team of elite stunt pilots who will be performing this weekend at Andrews Air Force Base.
