Developers of a large senior living complex in Annapolis have more work to do before their proposal can gain preliminary environmental approval from city officials. On Friday the city sent developers of Crystal Spring Annapolis - a proposed mix of senior housing, townhouses and shops on 180 acres - a lengthy list of revisions that need to be made before the project's forest conservation plan can win approval, an early but key step in the process. Crystal Spring would include 350 apartments and cottages for seniors and 75 beds for nursing care and assisted living.

Michael Middleton calls poverty Baltimore's biggest enemy. The $1.1 billion plan to overhaul the city's schools is fine, he told Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and new superintendent Gregory Thornton, but the economic issues facing families need to be addressed first. The city's problems "won't be fixed by brick and mortar," the Cherry Hill Community Coalition representative said. "That's where I disagree with you," the mayor replied, adding that even the city's poorest areas produce good students, who desperately need a place to succeed.

The Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association confirmed Thursday it is planning to return the cross country state championship meet to Hereford this year. Construction at the school forced last year's title meet to be moved to McDaniel College in Carroll County. MPSSAA executive director Ned Sparks said Thursday that construction seems to be progressing well, and Hereford has given tentative assurances that everything's going to be ready for the Nov. 8 event. Sparks said the final decision will come in early September although it's on the MPSSAA's cross country bulletin that the state title meet is going back to Hereford.

TORONTO -- Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez still didn't know before Wednesday's game when he would make his next appearance for the Orioles, but he said his work day at Rogers Centre was his best of the season. A decision on Jimenez, who hasn't pitched in a major league game since July 5 and has been on the disabled list with a right ankle sprain since July 13, will likely come Thursday. He could be activated to start either Saturday or Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals at Camden Yards, or he could return out of the bullpen.

Does the Sunpaper's editorialist writing about Maryland Rep. Chris Van Hollen's proposed legislation entitled "The Healthy Climate and Family Security Act" know what is meant by "the invisible hand of the market"? ( "Cap and dividend," Aug. 4.) This reference is certainly not to the invisible hand envisioned by Adam Smith. Mr. Van Hollen's proposal is to require energy companies to purchase through auction a permit to drill for or mine mineral resources. Some people would call that a tax, but perhaps the difference is that those funds which the government would acquire would then be redistributed instead of being held onto by the government.

A collapsed house. An abandoned warehouse furred with vines. Block after block of vacant homes, shattered windows framing blackness. Then, the tunnel and the train platform. The mix of shuttered industrial spaces and faded neighborhoods that flank the tracks leading to Penn Station are some of Baltimore's bleakest landscapes. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wants to change the view for the 2 million people who use Penn Station each year - and improve Baltimore's image. She plans to formally unveil today an elegant billboard-sized sign that is visible from the train platform.

IRVINE, Calif. - Though he has swum four meets since his return to competition, Michael Phelps will gain a truer gauge of his form this week at U.S. Nationals. The event, which begins Wednesday and runs through Sunday, will bring together the nation's best swimmers as they vie for spots in the 2015 FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia. Analysts will have their eyes on Phelps, not only to see how he fares against world-class competition but to glean a hint of which events he hopes to swim at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

I am a member of the team that worked with University of Maryland University College President Javier Miyares and Board Chair Mark Gerencser to propose a plan to reorganize UMUC to meet the rapidly evolving changes in the way higher education is delivered worldwide ( "Transforming UMUC," July 30). In order to meet these difficult and complex challenges, exceptional leadership is essential, and Mr. Miyares and Mr. Gerencser have met those challenges with open and transparent leadership that has resulted in the formation of an exceptional plan moving forward.

In a letter Tuesday to Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, school Superintendent Dallas Dance said he had agreed to drop the plan to renovate the former Loch Raven Elementary School and put an addition on the Cromwell Valley Elementary School. "As we discussed, I am committed to working with you, as we have been, regarding our capital plan moving forward," Dance said. Last Friday, Kamenetz announced that he would not fund the proposals the school district had made for the two schools because the cost estimates had risen substantially.

Does the EDM scene have a drug problem? The question, which has followed the increasingly mainstream electronic dance music genre for years, is being raised again in the wake of the deaths of two males, ages 20 and 17, who attended an all-day EDM show last weekend in Columbia. Nineteen other people were sent to hospitals from Friday's Mad Decent Block Party at Merriweather Post Pavilion, which featured artists such as Diplo, Flux Pavilion and Dillon Francis. The concerns come as Baltimore prepares for the first-ever Moonrise Festival, which will take place Saturday and Sunday at Pimlico Race Course and feature genre heavyweights Kaskade and Bassnectar.
