As a young girl, Jean Brinton Jaecks would sit around her family's dinner table in Severn and listen to her parents talk about nature, light and color. Her mother, Mary, was a painter; her father, Earl, created wood sculptures as a break from his job as a designer at Westinghouse. "Back in the 1960s, they began an organic garden," Jaecks recalls. "In 1961, that was unheard of. The neighbors made fun of them. " Love of the outdoors and the arts were reinforced during summer vacations, when the family would drive to Cape Ann and Rockport in Maine.

Rolling west on Saratoga Street, the wheelchair jolted to a stop. The man in the chair rocked and struggled to use his only leg to pull himself out of the pothole. "They need to do something about this," said the man, who identified himself as Eric, after he made his way across the intersection of Paca and Saratoga streets near Lexington Market. He was among many who had trouble yesterday negotiating the corner, where road work has had pedestrians dodging cars and drivers swerving around potholes and uneven manhole covers.

Plans for a 91-unit retirement community near Bel Air have been revised into a 172-unit subdivision with townhouses and condominiums, sparking outcry from nearby residents concerned about the effect on roads and schools. The property is owned by the estate of Henry H. Boyer and is under contract for sale to the Towson-based Nottingham Properties Inc. The sale is contingent on county approval of the project, said Doug Cann, the company's vice president. Although the new proposal includes more homes, it is consistent with the county's master plan and in compliance with the county's requirements, county officials say. The impending opening of two schools and the expected effects of redistricting led the company to plan a higher-density community, he said.

More than 600 students left William Paca Elementary on the city's east side Thursday and marched to Patterson Park for a field day. While they played, about 300 volunteers descended on their school to paint, carpet, tile and landscape. Those not assigned a renovation task organized kids' activities in the park. The student lounge underwent a makeover that turned its dark walls pale blue. Volunteers cleaned the library shelves and recataloged the books. They refurbished the stage in the assembly room, replaced ceiling tiles, repaired the scoreboard in the gym and planted flowers in the outdoor gardens.

Even in a city where senseless killings are not uncommon, the outburst of gunfire that left two people dead and four others wounded outside a downtown nightclub Sunday was shocking. Police are still piecing together what happened, but it appears that officers responding to a disturbance around closing time at the Select Lounge on North Paca Street fatally shot a fellow officer and an unarmed civilian in the course of dispersing an unruly crowd that had spilled onto to the street in front of the club.

There was a time in his life — it turns out, most of his life — when Marco Alva felt like a man without a country. He had become separated by time and distance from Mexico and the culture of his native country, and, while he had married an American and started a family here, he was not yet a citizen of the United States. Sunday morning in Annapolis, the feeling of being adrift went away. On the Fourth of July, Marco Alva became an American. He and 36 other men and women took the oath of citizenship at the annual naturalization ceremony at the William Paca House, home of one of Maryland's signers of the Declaration of Independence.

"We live in such a fast-moving society," said Archbishop Edwin F. O'Brien. "It would be easy to overlook our site and the importance to our faith.

Scotti Preston was a woman on a mission. Her job - to prepare a feast fit for royalty. She prepared bass, candied ginger, mincemeat pies, a boar's head, oysters, pheasant, fresh churned butter and bread. "This is the type of meal that the wealthy people who lived during the 18th and 19th centuries would have eaten," Preston said as she chipped chunks off of what looked like a mound of sugar. Although the food she prepared was artificial, Preston plans to use the dishes as props to portray a character named Cook.
