At the funeral Tuesday for Justin Nicholas Diggs, family and friends remembered a child who loved the outdoors, God and helping others. Justin, a 12-year-old Pikesville Middle School honor student, was killed July 8 when a tree fell on him during a violent thunderstorm at River Valley Ranch, a Christian summer camp in the Millers community in Carroll County. Eight other children in the camp were treated for minor injuries. During the service at New Psalmist Baptist Church in Baltimore, camp program director John Zeigenfuse recounted how Justin once told his mother he wasn't calling home often while at River Valley because he was busy helping other campers.

It's about an hour before showtime, and 16-year-old NicKayla Tucker, of Laurel, is obviously enjoying the last-minute preparations for her NicKayla & Friends concert Saturday at the Comfort Inn in Beltsville. Dressed in Nike pants and a muscle T-shirt, she joined her dancers in a number, stood back and watched, gave them a few instructions, and rejoined the action, smiling throughout and exuding an energy that's contagious. "Hey, can you play 'No Permission,' " she asked her sound crew in the back of the auditorium, a song she wrote and planed to perform for the show.

I'VE HEARD that good things come to those who wait. The adage proved true for a lifelong Glen Burnie resident who also happens to be my sister. When Gail Ehrlich (then Gail Koros) took a cruise with friends in 1979, she knew what she'd be coming home with -- a great tan and some terrific memories. But she had no idea what she'd be leaving behind.While jumping the waves that lapped onto Bermuda's pink sand beach, she felt her school ring slip from her finger. Maybe it was the thrust of the water or maybe it was the lubrication from the suntan oil, but the ring was gone.

Frank Neukam and Justin Pfeffer's friendship began the summer before high school. But their 10-year bond was cemented later — over their mothers' battles with breast cancer . Pfeffer's mother was diagnosed when he was 20; two years later, in 2008, Neukam lost his mother after her 15-year fight. That prompted Neukam and Pfeffer to start Brothers for Each Other's Mothers, a group that has raised more than $20,000 and has participated in the two most recent Susan G. Komen Maryland races.

At historically black colleges and universities, homecoming is nothing short of "soul food" for the alumni who return each year to see old friends, teachers and acquaintances. For a week, it's a continuing party - a display of pride in a tradition that has made HBCUs' homecomings a family affair. Beginning Oct. 12, thousands are expected to return to Baltimore for Morgan State University's homecoming week. There will be sorority and fraternity step shows and parties, gala events, concerts, a parade, and, to cap it all off, a football game Oct. 15, when the Morgan Bears face the Howard University Bison.

The winter wheat crop on Glenn King's farm in Northern Baltimore County will bear an unusual harvest this year. Besides the wheat that will be sent to market, the stalks that hold up the grains will be dried and turned into straw. The straw will be bundled into block-sized bales and shipped to Prince George's County, where they will become infill for the walls of a new home for Friends Community School. In less than 18 months, students will be attending classes in a building that literally rose from the ground this winter.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Friends and relatives of Eddie Araujo say they understand why the 17-year-old who often identified himself as Gwen, Lida or Wendy was so uncomfortable at school that he stopped making an effort to attend. Faced with a complex web of other problems, Araujo lost interest in school and fell behind. By the start of this school year, which would have been his senior year, he had stopped attending school entirely and had given up on graduating in June. For years before his killing Oct. 3, friends said, classmates taunted the transgender youth for the way he dressed and the way he acted.
