After publishing The Inner Harbor Network, for eight years, I'd like to comment on Jake Stern's observation ("Inner Harbor is for Baltimoreans too," May 9) about Baltimore's premier tourist attraction. It's a great place to visit and even a better place to live. I've called the Inner Harbor home for close to 20 years and wouldn't move anywhere else. However, most Inner Harbor residents are apathetic about the area — have no interest in promoting it, and often denigrate the location stating fear of crime and lack of parking.

This is a tale of two countries. The first country was built on a radical new promise of human equality and a guarantee of the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That country made it possible for even those born in the humblest and most meager circumstances to climb to the pinnacle of prosperity and achievement. It helped save the world in a great global conflagration, fed and rebuilt the devastated nations of Europe, planted the first footprints on another world.

Once again the official promotion of breast feeding as the only choice is being touted by my friend Fran Phillips at the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene ("Maryland seeks to improve support for mothers to breast-feed," Feb. 11). No one disputes some of the advantages of breast feeding, but many claims for benefits in health care cost savings are way off. No one has looked at the cost of the number of extra visits to my office to reassure distraught parents with children who are doing poorly with the nursing process.

Wes Unseld has never been one to seek the spotlight. Yet there he was on Thursday, surrounded by media, NBA players past and present and several hundred youngsters who packed the gym at the Unseld School in West Baltimore for the promotion of a Washington Wizards preseason basketball game to be played in Baltimore on Oct. 20. "It's a big treat for the kids here to see some of the old [Baltimore] Bullets and the new Wizards," said Unseld, 67, a Hall of Fame center who played 13 years for the franchise in both cities.

WASHINGTON -- In the pre-dawn darkness of Oct. 14, 1996, the USS Theodore Roosevelt was maneuvering in the choppy Atlantic waters 100 miles off Cape Hatteras, N.C. The carrier was "backing down" -- reversing -- when it collided with a cruiser, the USS Leyte Gulf, in a thunderous screech of steel that knocked sailors to the decks and caused $10 million in damage.In the Navy, the reverberations of that October night are still being felt.The commander of the carrier, Rear Adm. Ronald L. Christenson, a 1969 Naval Academy graduate, was later judged to be the most culpable for the collision and received a punitive letter of reprimand in November 1996, usually a career-ender.

A joint effort of the Maryland SPCA, Baltimore Humane Society and Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, the promotion aims to find new homes for 500 homeless felines during the month of June.

The headline "Howard County applauds Howard County" (Sept. 18) is perfect for this tale of shameless self-promotion. Hanging 242 banners is being spun as a way of attracting tourism. Do you choose your tourist destination based on the locale's libraries, schools or digital prowess? One just can't suspend reality enough to buy into this excuse for spending $28,000 in taxpayer funds. Both the Economic Development Authority and Howard County Tourism are county budget items. This project is offensive on so many levels it may backfire on accolade-obsessed Ken Ulman and candidates Calvin Ball and Courtney Watson.

The last time the Orioles had an announcement like Wednesday night's, it was late May 2009, when then-club president Andy MacPhail took to the airwaves to announce that Matt Wieters would be coming up to play that Friday, May 29. This one is close. The Orioles announced late last night that Manny Machado, the club's top pick in 2010, will be called up Thursday. He likely will start tonight, although Wieters' debut was set and this one officially isn't. So if you want to be there for Machado's debut, you'll have to buy a ticket for Thursday and keep your fingers crossed.

After three years mixing, bottling and boxing natural personal care products to be sold in local shops at their home in Annapolis, Robert and Zoe Benzinger are poised for bigger things. For the first time their company, eco-armour, will be among the exhibitors starting Wednesday at Natural Products Expo East 2014 in Baltimore, billed as the largest trade show on the East Coast devoted to goods made from ingredients found in nature treated with relatively little processing. The industry says sales of natural food for people and pets, diet supplements, and cosmetics and grooming products are growing about 8 percent a year.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake will use $52 million from a state grant to bolster Baltimore's energy conservation efforts, including improving education and outreach efforts. The goal of the Baltimore Energy Initiative, announced this week by the mayor's office, is to reduce energy use in the city and promote local investment. Money from the initiative will give some city residents free in-home installation of programmable thermostats, pipe wraps and other energy and water conservation equipment.

Paul Manna got his start booking wedding bands for $50 a week plus 15 percent to 20 percent commission. It was a way into music, which he knew he wanted, but it wasn't quite right. "My heart wasn't in booking wedding bands," said Manna, who, at 47, still remembers vividly the thrill of his first concert when he was 15 — Ted Nugent at the Civic Center in Baltimore. Since he started 24-7 Entertainment in 1997, he's been working to provide that excitement for audiences, booking about 100 shows a year in the Baltimore area.

Manager Buck Showalter isn't waiting for rosters to expand Monday to give the Orioles the kind of position player depth that he thinks they will need for the stretch run. The Orioles selected the contract of utility player Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, giving the team a five-man bench for the series finale against the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards, and potentially, the weekend series with the Minnesota Twins. Showalter said Paredes likely would have been promoted when rosters expand next week, but the ability to send right-hander Kevin Gausman to the minor leagues after Wednesday's start without having him miss a turn in the rotation allowed Paredes to be brought up sooner.

The final vote did not come easy, but Major League Baseball chief operating officer Robert D. Manfred finally achieved the necessary super-majority early Thursday night to become the the 10th commissioner of baseball. Manfred, who helped steer the sport through its most volatile labor period and has been a pivotal figure in the game's war on performance-enhancing drugs, was considered the heavy favorite to succeed Allan H. "Bud" Selig when the selection process entered its final stage during the two-day quarterly owners meeting at the Baltimore Hyatt Regency.

After giving away about $600,000 in furniture last year, a Baltimore company is testing its luck once again on Super Bowl Sunday. Last year, Gardiners Furniture promised customers free goods if one of the teams returned a kick for a touchdown at the start of the game or just after halftime. They found themselves having to make good on the promotion after Baltimore Raven Jacoby Jones did just that in the second half. Gardiners had taken out a $12,000 insurance policy in case of the unlikely event, but the promotion was a welcomed windfall for dozens of Baltimore-area customers.

The Orioles' decision to purchase the contract of infielder Cord Phelps from Triple-A Norfolk to take third baseman Manny Machado's spot on the club's 25-man roster was somewhat of a surprise because he wasn't on the organization's 40-man roster like other alternatives Steve Lombardozzi and Jimmy Paredes. But Phelps came recommended by Triple-A Norfolk manager Ron Johnson and other player development staff. “We take a lot of stock in what our people there every day tell us,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.
