Spring has entered the Gap in the little lilac sweater sets piled up neatly near the thin mint tees and the pale yellow cardigans. Dainty clothes, spirited clothes, clothes that speak of sunshine and fanciful pursuits, of taut, firm skin -- of youth.In the last year of this over-the-hill millennium, spring continues to be about youthfulness and rejuvenation -- or at least about shopping for them. And what better spot than the Gap to search for the values of spring? At this store, members of the ageless generation of baby boomers can purchase the season alongside their children, and in some instances, their grandchildren.

The embattled Contemporary Museum will reopen this fall and winter, roughly 18 months after the institution abruptly shut its doors and laid off its five-member staff. The rejuvenated institution, now called The Contemporary, will return to its nomadic roots by mounting exhibitions at several as-yet-undetermined locations throughout Baltimore, instead of staging them in just one building that viewers have to deliberately decide to visit. "The Contemporary is back!" reads an announcement at contemporary.org.

The losing became so persistent that Martha Macgill pulled herself from the rotation of Episcopal clergy who regularly attended ball games at Camden Yards. She remembers one defeat in particular; it was Mother's Day 2007 and Jeremy Guthrie pitched eight sparkling innings only for the Orioles bullpen to squander a five-run cushion in the ninth against the Boston Red Sox. Her son Jack Kelleher fell to the floor in despair. "It just got so depressing," says Macgill, the rector at Memorial Episcopal Church in Bolton Hill.

J. HAROLD Grady became a leading judge because he didn't like being Baltimore's 40th mayor. His three years at City Hall were times of transition. He was the bridge between two legendary mayors, Democrat Thomas J. D'Alesandro Jr. and Theodore R. McKeldin, the last Republican to rule Charm City. Behind-the-scenes political power was also changing - from Jack Pollack to Irv Kovens, who was Mr. Grady's benefactor. Downtown also was changing. Construction of Charles Center, the city's first ambitious business rejuvenation project, started in 1961 during his administration.

DARRELL BENNETT is watching. The mayor of Baltimore, Martin O'Malley, arrives in the 4600 block of Park Heights Ave., and Bennett has a beautiful seat from his little front porch. The mayor is here to trumpet his re-election campaign. Bennett is out there to unburden himself of a few truths. In his campaign announcement, the mayor takes a few bows: for reducing violent crime, for confronting narcotics traffickers. But he's made a shaky choice of geography for an occasion of self-congratulation.

WASHINGTON -- Whenever one of the national political parties falls on hard times, it's predictable that a new organization will spring up designed to put the losing party onto the correct path to resurrection.That was the case in 1985 when moderate and conservative Democrats, weary of the New Deal retread message conveyed to the electorate by 1984 presidential nominee Walter Mondale and convinced the party had to address the needs of middle-class voters more effectively, formed the Democratic Leadership Council.

Over the years, 66-year-old Gunther "Joe" Bongard has been losing his sight, the result of optic nerve damage from hydrocephalus, which he suffered as a newborn. Now, he only has about 5 percent sight left, but that doesn't stop him from his hobby -- making toy trucks, cars and wagons out of wood."You never know what talent you have until something like this happens to you," said the Laurel, Del., resident. He learned to use saws and rulers especially made for the blind while attending a school for the blind in his native New Jersey.

IT'S LATE August, Sammy Sosa is on the disabled list for the second time, and he may or may not be seen or heard from much the rest of the way. If that had been known back in February, when the Orioles traded for Sosa, a mob would have shown up at the warehouse with torches and pitchforks. Today, it's about 268th on the list of the Orioles' biggest worries and 397th on their list of biggest disappointments. And your average fan can't spare enough anger from all the other targets to spend on the continued, gradual disappearance of the franchise's marquee offseason acquisition.

Patterson Hood doesn't hesitate to acknowledge that his band, Southern rock veterans Drive-By Truckers, almost called it quits last year. He doesn't elaborate on details but concedes that "personal [stuff]" was eroding the band from the inside. "I spent a lot of last year soul-searching whether it was time to pack it up and call it a day. I truly did," Hood said. "I spent two years with that in the back of my mind, a nagging thing. I didn't like where the band was at. " Hood laughs at the idea now. With the recent departures of bassist Shonna Tucker and guitarist John Neff, Hood says, Drive-By Truckers is rejuvenated.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Mark Hendrickson is trying to re-invent himself at the age of 38. The Orioles, especially manager Buck Showalter, believe he can. The 6-foot-9 left-hander - a veteran of five different major league teams, including a stint with the Orioles from 2009-2011 - didn't pitch professionally last season. No teams were interested in his services. His phone was not called. So instead he pitched in a semi-pro league in York, Pa., the same way he first laid a path to the big leagues.

A growing number of people looking for less invasive procedures than plastic surgery or Botox injections to do away with wrinkles and sagging jawlines are turning to the ancient Chinese-rooted practice of acupuncture. And they are starting to come to Laurel's Main Street for the treatment. Since late 2011, acupuncturist Janet Young, of Laurel, has offered facial rejuvenation treatments at the Neighborhood Acupuncture center in the 300 block of Main Street. A master's-degree graduate of the Tai Sophia Institute in North Laurel, Young said using acupuncture to slow the aging process is not a quick fix like Botox, which relaxes the muscles and provides immediate results, but it does work.

Since 1899, the Coast Guard's shipyard at Curtis Bay has added years to the life of the sea-battered fleet, repairing and upgrading hundreds of cutters before sending them back on patrol. So in 2002 when shipyard officials looked at the future and saw a graying workforce with an average age of 47, they crafted a rejuvenation plan based on nurturing home-grown talent. The trades training program they created has placed 125 students and graduates in the Curtis Bay workforce, which numbers 625. The apprentices receive not just trades training but college credits.

U.S. 1 in Howard County gets you from Elkridge to Laurel, from the White Elk Motel to the Fat Daddy Saloon, with an array of industrial and office parks, homes, fast-food restaurants, storage places and gas stations in between. The strip is looking better in recent years, sprouting new developments with names like Elkridge Crossing, Howard Square and Ashbury Courts, but it's still a work in progress. The county's planning department has a vision of what that 11-mile stretch along Howard's eastern edge could be, and has included these notions in the proposed master plan for growth to be presented to the County Council for the first time Monday night.

PHILADELPHIA — Michael Vick is no big deal with the Redskins. He's 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds, to be exact. That's the size of smoking-fast Redskins rookie Brandon Banks, a practice-squad wide receiver who this past week was assigned to emulate the Eagles quarterback in advance of Sunday's game. Opposing teams will do just about anything to simulate the challenge presented by Vick, who has thrown six touchdown passes and run 23 times for an average of 7.4 yards a carry.

"It's what's expected," inside linebacker Ray Lewis said after the Ravens' thorough 37-7 shellacking of the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. "We've been battling for a long time, and we have a veteran defense, and if it ain't broke, don't fix it. That's kind of our thing. You go into last week's game, and you don't get off the field on third downs. You go into this game and you do get off the field on third downs.

The Hendrick Motorsports empire will celebrate its sixth consecutive Sprint Cup title in November. One person will be conspicuously absent: Jimmie Johnson. The five-time champion will finally be dethroned, not by any of his archrivals named Busch or anybody else. His good friend and teammate Jeff Gordon is going to bring him down. And so it is written. In his own words, Gordon is "rejuvenated" after three regular-season victories, including a thrilling run at Atlanta Motor Speedway in which he held off a furious charge from Johnson in the last 10 laps.
