There's just something about the water in Baltimore. Maybe you knew that already, but it's worth repeating. The water here, it enables you to do almost anything. Michael Phelps sprang from these waters. Katie Hoff, too. But the swimming story I hope we'll all be able to appreciate this summer is Philip Scholz's quest to represent the United States in the Paralympics. Scholz is a freshman at Loyola College. Before I even tell you about what he's able to do in the water, you've got to understand what he has already been through.

More than 70 firefighters battled two large blazes that destroyed a home in Parole and another in Brooklyn Park on Tuesday night, Anne Arundel fire officials said yesterday. No one was injured in the fires, which began between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., said Division Chief John M. Scholz, a Fire Department spokesman. Scholz said the first blaze started about 8 p.m. at a single-family home in the 100 block of Dorsey Drive in Parole. Investigators believe a faulty wood stove ignited the fire, which caused about $65,000 in damage to the house and an adjacent home, Scholz said.
