While I have heard of no more Roland Park homes broken into in the middle of the day, crime continues, as does fast police response. Last week, we were invited out to dinner by friends who live on Roland Avenue.  When they picked us up, they told us that the previous night, many side mirrors on cars near them, including theirs, were pried loose and were found dangling. This was the day after they had just gotten their car back from the body shop...

Lisa Meagher had a full house in Roland Park in the early afternoon of July 18, with people visiting from out of town, a plumber working in the basement, and the family dog in the front yard. The possibility of a home invasion was the farthest thing from her mind. But when they locked the dog in the back yard and left the house on Woodlawn Road for awhile, the last person to leave forgot to set the alarm. While they were gone, burglars apparently used a crowbar to pry open the front door.

Lillian N. Conklin, a former admissions director at Roland Park Country School and St. Paul's School for Girls who was known for her warmth and sense of humor, died June 14 of colitis at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. She was 85. "Not only was Lil the mother of two alumnae and the devoted grandmother of an alumna, but I often heard from my predecessor, the late Anne Healy, headmistress from 1950 to 1975, that Lil was indispensable to her and that her warmth and professionalism were greatly treasured," said Jean Waller Brune, head of Roland Park Country School.

Nobody was more patriotic Thursday than native Russian Alex Finoggenoff. Finoggenoff, who became a U.S. citizen in 2011, was literally draped in an American flag. He wore it around his shoulders, matching his red, white and blue T-shirt, as he marched with 400 others in the 17th annual Fourth of July parade from the Roland Park Library to Roland Park Presbyterian Church on the Fourth of July. "I'm just being patriotic and getting in the right spirit," said Finoggenoff, 38, of Roland Park, a teacher at Barclay Elementary/Middle School in Charles Village.

The path from Baltimore to the National Basketball Association is dotted with big names and busts, with perennial All-Stars like Carmelo Anthony, heartwarming reclamation projects like Gary Neal and whatever-happened-to former first-round draft picks like Josh Boone. But in the decade since Anthony was drafted behind a legend-in-the-making named LeBron James and the long-forgotten Darko Milicic, an argument can be made that no single family has made a bigger impact in the NBA than the Connelly brothers.

For house hunters who think they couldn't possibly own a Georgian-style home in Baltimore's Roland Park neighborhood for under $1 million, then 504 Overhill Road may be a pleasant surprise — it's listed at $699,000. "This is a grand dame, old-style brick Colonial that [offers] over 5,000 square feet of living space," said listing agent Barbara Goldberg of Long & Foster Real Estate in reference to the 113-year-old home built on an embankment off a tree-lined street. "This is a lot of house for a little bit of money, and it has location for sure.

A Roland Park resident has created a "passport" to Druid Hill Park. Janet Felsten, founder and director of the nonprofit group Baltimore Green Map, introduced the green-colored passport April 19 at a Baltimore Green Week kickoff party in the conservatory. Felsten said she created the 20-page, passport-shaped booklet on cover stock paper as a companion to a detailed map of Druid Hill Park that she made in 2010. The purpose of the map and the new passport is partly to point out places of interest in the 745-acre park, which is home to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, Druid Lake and the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens, among other attractions.
