As incoming president of Maryland Institute College of Art, Samuel Hoi is succeeding Fred Lazarus IV, who is retiring this spring after nearly 36 years at the helm of an institution that has seen unprecedented growth and prosperity under his direction. But he's not daunted. “That is the wonderful luxury of not coming to an institution that needs to be fixed,” Hoi said Monday, hours after being named. “I'm actually inheriting a well-run organization that I can actually build on. I don't see anything that needs to be fixed.

Otis R. "Damon" Harris Jr., a Baltimore singer who performed with the Temptations during the 1970s and later used his own diagnosis of prostate cancer to help raise awareness of the disease in African-American men, died Feb. 18 from the disease at Joseph Richey Hospice. The Owings Mills resident was 62. "Singing was his thing. When we were kids, his ambition was to be a singer for the Temptations. We did talent shows where we played Temps records and he'd sing," said Chuck Woodson, a cousin and broadcaster who recently retired as general manager of WFBR-AM 1590.

Things have started getting pretty heavy in "The Walking Dead," not that it was a game of Candy Land before this week's episode, titled "Save the Last One" (referring to a bullet, in case the zombies catch you, so you can go out on your own terms and not theirs!) If you haven't watched the episode yet, you might not want to read any further because I'm about to discuss some fairly significant plot developments. Lori Grimes, a.k.a Debbie Downer , strongly considered letting her firstborn son perish so he could stop enduring the endless nightmare, and Shane Walsh took a serious heel turn , capping poor, fat Otis and letting him get devoured by walkers.

On election night, it's customary for candidates to throw a big shindig for themselves even if they know they're toast. Well, Frank Conaway is not your conventional candidate. Asked if he had party plans for tonight, the Baltimore Circuit Court Clerk and wannabe rapper was incredulous. "A party? Oh, no, I'm not having a party," he said. "I'm tired, man. I need rest. " Sorry to break to you, folks. Conaway won't even sing his trademark rap . His plans are to invite a few friends and relatives over to his home.

Just what we need: another Baltimore mayor fixated on shoes. At least Otis Rolley, the former city planning director running for mayor, isn't waving a high heel in a threatening manner. Nor is he asking developers doing business with the city to buy him Jimmy Choos.  He'd like ordinary citizens to chip in for his footwear, in the form of campaign donations. "It's a very rare thing for me, but I need new shoes," the candidate writes in an email that includes a photo of some well-worn lace-ups.

Baltimore mayoral candidate Otis Rolley needed to get some attention and to boost his name recognition. That he has done, though most of the attention from his proposal to tax ammunition at a dollar a round in the city has been derisory. The Internet is abuzz with reaction to his suggested ammo tax, just one of 12 steps he promises to take as mayor to "make every neighborhood in Baltimore safer. " Calling himself "the man with a plan," the challenger to Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's attempt to win a term on her own after succeeding the ousted Sheila Dixon says he's not at all disturbed by the scorn stirred up by his tax idea.
