It took two visits before Evan Phoenix told the Central Connecticut State coaching staff that he wanted to play basketball there. In the Calvert Hall junior's mind, though, the first trip was more than enough. “When I first stepped on the campus, it just seemed like the environment I wanted to be in,” Phoenix said. “Everything just seemed right.” Phoenix committed to the Blue Devils last week. The 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward also considered offers from American, Hartford and UMBC.

The Phoenix Repertory Dance Co., under the artistic direction of Carol Hess, nicely padded its already well-stocked repertoire of works with two company premieres -- one by New York City choreographer David Rousseve, "Caged Bird Singing in the Pale Moonlight," and one by resident choreographer Douglas Hamby, "Quintet."Both recently acquired and older works were shown when the company, based at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, performed a program of seven dances Thursday and last night at the UMBC Theatre.

In one of the city's first historic preservation battles, Baltimore residents paid $17,000 in 1924 to save the soaring Phoenix Shot Tower from a wrecking ball and a future as a Union Oil Company gas station. Today, preservationists are again rallying around the Shot Tower. While it is no longer in danger - the city has abandoned a 2012 proposal to consider selling more than a dozen historic properties, including the tower - they say more needs to be done to showcase the attraction and to fully restore what was once the nation's tallest building.

The news is out: The National Football League ain't gonna play Sun City. Phoenix has apparently lost the 1993 Super Bowl because Arizona voters rejected a proposal to join 47 states and the national government in honoring Martin Luther King Jr. with a holiday.On the face of it, the NFL's decision, which must be approved by at least 21 owners, is a wonderful example of racial sensitivity and compelling evidence that, in the post-Reagan era, big business can have a conscience and a moral center.

The outdoors in and around Phoenix lures the visitor with so much. In the city, and just beyond, the legends and colors of the Sonoran Desert with its Indian lore and pastel painted bluffs, buttes and bold red mountains beckon. Nearby on the Indian Reservation, the trails fill with the green of creosote against wheat-colored rocks, and the scent of sagebrush.Phoenix is an especially appealing winter getaway with mild temperatures -- not as in the summer, when they can rise to 120 degrees -- and a palette of colors and textures to soothe a dreary winter soul.

Residents of Phoenix, in northern Baltimore County, have watched the area change during recent years as homeowners who can afford it move to this picturesque setting of horse farms and open land. Though still considered a rural suburb of Baltimore, the area is growing. Steuart Hihn of Long & Foster Real Estate Inc.'s Phoenix office, an area resident, says the community has become a mix of old and new homes during the past few years. As more people seek the peace and quiet of a rural community and can afford the spiraling prices of the large homes there, Phoenix continues to grow.

A wreck of an old house has appeal for a special kind of couple, and like Sandi and John Kroh, winners of the first Baltimore Sun Historic Homes Contest, that is true of Jeff and Sharon Dillon. They are great fans of "This Old House" and took the opportunity on a trip through New England to visit a house that had been restored for the TV show. "I was thinking, 'We could do that,' " said Sharon. Her husband still wants to know what they were thinking when they bought the Hunt-Schmidt House in Phoenix almost 17 years ago. The efforts of the Dillons to restore the 1850s blacksmith's house earned them the runner-up spot in the contest.

Except for the fact that his left foot is encased in a protective boot, and that most of his training is done sitting down, little has changed for former Maryland center Alex Len as he gets ready for next week's NBA draft. The 7-1 center, who gave up his remaining college eligibility following his sophomore season with the Terps , seems to be working just as hard, if not harder, despite a partial stress fracture in his left ankle that was discovered in early April. When he is not travelling around the country interviewing with NBA teams in advance of the June 27 draft, Len is at Comcast Center going through hours of grueling, tedious exercises geared toward strengthening his upper body, his hands and his healthy right leg. Though the routines are much different than when he was fully upright and playing for Maryland, the approach Len took Monday was much the same as it had been ever since he showed up a tall skinny teenager from Ukraine in August 2011.

When John Thompson was growing up in a blue-collar area of Pittsburgh, he knew he likely wouldn't become a third-generation steelworker. Buoyed by his father's belief that teaching was an important profession, he took a circuitous route toward education - and he discovered a drive and desire to help the underprivileged and underserved. Currently, Thompson is assistant principal at Phoenix Center Annapolis, the state's only school that serves students with disabilities from kindergarten through the 12th grade.
