Baltimore's historic Brexton apartment building has a new savior. Stephen Mowbray, a Baltimore native who has found success as a residential developer in the Logan Circle neighborhood of Washington, has turned his attention to restoring the Brexton, which he acquired last month. The six-story Victorian-style landmark at 868 Park Ave. dates from 1891 and was briefly the childhood home of Wallis Warfield Simpson, who became the Duchess of Windsor. Designed by Charles E. Cassell, architect of the old Stewart's department store on Howard Street and the former Stafford and Junker hotels, the Brexton opened as a residential hotel and later was converted to 25 apartments, but has been vacant since the late 1980s.

WASHINGTON - A historic election will take place next year, and I'm not talking about the U.S. presidential contest. This week, Saudi Arabia announced that it will hold its first elections to create local municipal councils. The Saudis announced the plan in response to growing criticism of their regime. The House of Saud - a medieval-style, hereditary monarchy - rules the country with an iron fist, with the aging and infirm King Fahd the titular head, while his more robust half-brother, Crown Prince Abdullah, actually runs the affairs of state.
