State Sen. Jim Rosapepe should be applauded for his statement on transportation funding ("Put transportation in voters' hands," April 11). Identifying funding streams for transportation investments is a national political debate. Many understand the extraordinary need to invest in rebuilding our transportation infrastructure, but no one has taken the initiative to Senator Rosapepe's level. It will take a great amount of political courage to achieve his vision. Three thoughts came to mind in response to his column.

In the 2.3 acres surrounding Asbury Broadneck United Methodist Church, a subtle link to local history lies in a cemetery that dates back nearly 200 years. At least 1,800 graves - few with headstones, many belonging to former slaves - are on the grounds, each bearing a story and a key to the past. For the past 15 months, a dedicated team from the church has worked to identify each person buried there and perhaps even discover their stories. "It's important that we know who helped pave the way for us, because if this generation does not do it, I don't know what the next generation will do," said Elinor Thompson, who has led the effort.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars when the Ravens travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers on Sunday. 1. Tight end Owen Daniels When Daniels caught a pair of scores on play-action passes in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the football world collectively slapped its head, as if to say: "Why didn't we think of that?" Daniels was a frequent red-zone target for Gary Kubiak when the Ravens offensive coordinator was in Houston, and the plays he scored on were textbook Kubiak sets.

Baltimore County residents and developers expressed support Tuesday for a bill that would require public hearings on building projects to be held closer to the affected neighborhoods. The council will vote next week to require meetings to be held within three to eight miles of proposed developments. Meetings may be held in Towson if other sites are unavailable. The hearings, known as community input meetings, allow residents to get information about a proposed development's size and impact on traffic, schools and infrastructure before the plan is submitted for approval.

Silver Spring-based Choice Hotels International Inc. said Friday it's too soon to know whether two hotel projects planned for Haiti will move forward. Less than a week before Tuesday's earthquake leveled Port-au-Prince, the lodging company had announced plans to bring the first global hotel brand to the island in more than a decade. It had planned to open a Comfort Inn this year in the township of Jacmel and to start construction of an Ascend boutique hotel as part of a new luxury development of lodging, housing and shops, also in Jacmel.

Annie Linskey's recent piece entitled "O'Malley touts progress on State Center project" (July 28) highlighted Maryland's move toward a more thoughtful approach to land redevelopment. Optimally, this significant transit-oriented development project will dramatically improve the character of what today is simply just a cluster of concrete office buildings. By reinventing State Center as a mixed-use development (consisting of commercial, residential and government buildings), Baltimore residents will benefit by having a broad mix of services available in a convenient location, accessible via multiple transit options.

More than two dozen Johns Hopkins University students and staff painted the corridors of the 29th Street Community Center on Saturday as part of the school's annual President's Day of Service. Among them was the university's president himself. Crouching on his knees with brush in hand to cover a few hard-to-reach spots on the walls outside the center's main office, Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels modeled roles he wanted students to play when he launched the community service day in 2009.

It will at least provide some well-paying jobs and revenue to help jump start the Owings Mills-Reisterstown area.

For some thoroughbreds at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday, it had been mere months since their last race. Now, as the ex-racehorses trotted onto the track, they were asked by riders not to run like the wind, but do something entirely different - circle barrels, leap hurdles or prance precisely in dressage, an Olympic equestrian sport. The horses at the second annual Thoroughbred Makeover: A Marketplace & National Symposium resisted the urge to take off when they heard the boom of an announcer's voice.

New London, Connecticut. UNTIL I WAS 7 years old my world was defined by the seven-story high-rise in which my family and I had an apartment. Others call the cluster of buildings where we lived low-income housing. We just called it the projects.Eight of us lived in a three-bedroom unit. We slept on mattresses on the floor until we could afford beds. The apartment was located on the seventh floor where the rent was cheaper. The reason why became obvious in the winter, when the top-floor units were buffeted by Buffalo winds and the rooms became frigid.
