Last year on April 29, our son Brandon died after losing his fight with vasculitis, an auto immune disease that attacks the blood vessels. We, his family, were in shock and did not know where to honor Brandon's life in a memorial service since we haven't been attending a church on a regular basis. Brandon's mother suggested Cardinal Gibbons High School, where both Brandon and his younger brother graduated. This seemed like the perfect choice since both young men have a real heart connection to Gibbons.

Brockett Horne and her husband, Chris Tesluk, say they chose their city home with the flip of a coin. "Chris works in College Park and I teach at MICA; we ended up choosing Baltimore over D.C.," says Horne, a 40-year-old graphic artist. "We wanted an old house and close to a park. The city suits us … there is so much going on. " The couple purchased a three-story Butchers Hill rowhouse near Patterson Park in 2008 for $182,000. A former barbershop, it hadn't been occupied in 20 years.

Charles I. Ecker is a very nice man. When he ascended to the Howard County executive's seat -- and he would not like the analogy to a throne -- Mr. Ecker pledged that he would maintain an open-door policy, unlike his predecessor, Elizabeth Bobo. No aide or public relations specialist would act as an intermediary between him and his constituency, he said.Many observers, particularly those of us in the press, winked knowingly at one another, convinced that the realities of holding office would put a quick end to any promise about openness.

The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.

The Open Door drug treatment center is easier to reach, now that it is in a new location on Crain Highway, along the No. 14 bus route."You've got to go where people can get to you," said Dr. Steven R. Katkowsky, director of Anne Arundel County's Division of Mental Health & Addictions.The center opened at its new address, 407 Crain Highway, on Monday.

Pastor Norris Belcher strides to battle Satan not in a bejeweled robe but in a conservatively cut gray business suit. He goes unarmed but for a simple black Bible. He takes his campaign against the devil seriously, and he needs few trimmings to wage it. Satan is real, Belcher believes. Take the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. "I look at this thing on a grander scale," he said. "It's not Osama bin Laden against America; it's the devil against God, and the devil takes many forms, including this radical brand of Islamic theology coming out of Afghanistan."

MESA, Ariz.   - Michael Phelps ended the first meet of his comeback on an odd note Friday, using his butterfly stroke to swim a 50-meter freestyle race that's never been part of his repertoire. He was swimming to tinker with his form, not to win. And the race proved a side note to a week with greater implications for the record-setting Olympian and the sport he has loved since childhood. Phelps' return sent a charge through what would have been a routine meet, and the shock waves will continue to ripple through the swimming world as long as he's around.

When he was drafted by the Ravens in 1996, Jonathan Ogden joined an organization without team colors or a logo. As he stood behind the podium Saturday night at Fawcett Stadium and peered out into a crowd loaded with purple jerseys and T-shirts, Ogden couldn't help but appreciate how far he and the organization have come. Seventeen years after Ogden became the franchise's first-ever draft pick, the Ravens have an established fan base, two Super Bowl championships and their first ever Hall of Famer.

The Maryland Court of Appeals said Monday that the Anne Arundel County Council improperly removed a councilman from office while he served time in federal prison on tax charges in 2012. The ruling potentially opens the door for Daryl Jones to return to his seat, which he first won in 2006. Jones did not respond to requests for comment Monday, but his attorney, Linda Schuett, said, "He's very, very happy. " Jones, a Democrat who represented the northern and western parts of the county, was found guilty of failing to file tax returns and was sentenced to five months in prison.

In theory, the Supreme Court's evisceration of the Voting Rights Act sounds perfectly reasonable, even restrained. The majority opinion, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, does not eliminate the possibility that the government could require some jurisdictions to get pre-clearance from the federal government for changes to their voting systems to make sure they are not discriminatory against minorities. Rather, it merely holds that the criteria for determining which jurisdictions are covered, established in 1965, are no longer valid in a very changed world, and if Congress wants to continue the pre-clearance process, it needs to update its formula for inclusion.
