One year ago, when one hour of sleep a night was all Mark Mayr could manage in his grief, he set a goal: "I've got to make it through a year. " Eventually, sleep returned. But last week, as the first anniversary of his daughter Rose Mayr's death in a train derailment in the heart of Ellicott City approached, reminders were everywhere and the sleepless nights returned. "I felt myself slipping," he said. For Eric Nass, whose daughter Elizabeth "Liz" Nass died alongside Rose Mayr when the coal train left its tracks, the anniversary also weighed heavily on his thoughts - the only comfort being that there would never again be a first Christmas without Liz, or a first birthday.

In the largest private gift to its operating endowment in its history, the Walters Art Museum received a $750,000 donation from Robert and Nancy Hall of Baltimore, museum administrators recently announced. The gift completes a challenge grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The $1.75 million Mellon grant was awarded in December 2001 on the condition that an additional $750,000 would be raised within three years. About 15 months before the deadline, Hall, an investment advisor, and his wife, a volunteer docent and member of the museum's board of trustees, contributed the entire amount necessary to meet the grant's requirements.

WASHINGTON -- In the fall of 1981, 20 top corporate economists issued an economic forecast to the Business Council, composed of top corporate executives, predicting that there would be no recession.In fact, a recession had begun the previous July that was to last until November 1982 and cause the unemployment rate to reach 10.8 percent, the highest since the Great Depression.The council's mistaken forecast underlies the difficulties of pinpointing in what month a recession begins and ends.

The eminent composer Robert Hall Lewis died last Friday, just before his 70th birthday and barely a year into his retirement from Goucher College and the Peabody Institute.He is survived by his wife, Barbara, and his daughter, Renata. He is survived as well by his beautiful music: more than 70 orchestral works, including four symphonies and innumerable chamber works.Especially noteworthy among the latter are four string quartets, the last two of which are intense, highly concentrated examples of some of the best work in that medium done in our time.

When "XXL" revealed the cover of its March "Freshman Class" issue - the hip-hop magazine's annual anointment of rising rappers most poised for major success - there was a fresh-faced, parka-wearing kid in the bottom-right corner, throwing a peace sign as a couple of gold chains hung from his neck. It was Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as Logic, a 23-year-old rapper born and raised in Gaithersburg. Less than a month after the "XXL" cover was announced, Logic, who headlines the Fillmore Silver Spring on Sunday, signed to Def Jam Recordings, a label that has been synonymous with hip-hop prestige since producer Rick Rubin founded it in 1983.
