After nearly a decade of winning over local and out-of-town crowds as the lead singer of Fools & Horses, singer-songwriter Matt Hutchison suddenly became a solo act after the band broke up in October 2011. Since then, he's played wherever they'll have him — colleges, coffeehouses, the Night Cat in Easton, Joe Squared in Station North, to name a few places — trying to rebuild the interest his previous band earned. Consistent gigs are good, but it's difficult to gain listeners without releasing albums.

Even though Monica Patel can no longer play the violin, her love of music helped her win a four-year scholarship to McDaniel College in Westminster. Patel, who graduated in May from Howard High School, has been involved throughout her high school career with Collision Music, a nonprofit organization that fosters community service through music. Most members of Collision Music play instruments. Patel played violin for many years, but about four years ago, while jumping on a friend's trampoline, she broke both bones in her right arm. She had surgery to install metal plates, then another operation to take the plates out after her bones healed.

Use a shopping catalog such as J.C. Penny or Sears. Tell your child you are going on a shopping trip. Have him select an item, such as a television, and ask him, "What sound does television begin with?"You can do the same with other items, and every time he gives the correct sound, he gets to cut out and keep that object. When he does not know a sound, tell him, "Television begins with the sound 't'." Try not to say a vowel after the sound, in other words say 't' not 'tuh.' Praise him for the sounds he does give correctly.

NEW YORK - Pedestrians hurrying over a grate in the triangular median where Broadway and Seventh Avenue converge in Times Square, just south of 46th Street, rarely seem to notice anything out of the ordinary. But Max Neuhaus hopes that, subliminally, their lives are being changed. Neuhaus is a sound artist, a trained musician and a former famous percussionist who now shapes what he calls intangible sound in space, rather than the tangible sound of a composer working in time. "Times Square" is, if not necessarily his masterpiece, then at least his only work still up and running in the United States.

There's almost something patriotic about the notion of Americana. Drawing from roots-oriented strains of country, folk, blues and rock, the sound is as American as apple pie.But you don't have to be American to play it.Indeed, some of the most interesting variations on the American approach can be found north of the border, thanks to bands like Cowboy Junkies. Like fellow Canadians Blue Rodeo, Spirit of the West and the Waltons, the Junkies are intimately familiar with Americana's musical vocabulary.

I'M SO HAPPY to be rid of this past winter, its cold and long nights, that I've been getting up at 5:45 in the morning. I'm not sure that I really have any choice in the matter. The birds are a potent alarm clock - but what a delightful way to be roused from sleep. Friends who don't know what it is like to live at 26th and St. Paul in the city are often surprised when I tell them how quiet the old neighborhood is. The other night, I was dropped off at my front door after the end of the game where the Yankees clubbed the Orioles.

Marketers around the world are using innovative audio technology that sends sound in a narrow beam, just like light, making it possible to direct messages right into consumers' ears while they shop or sit in waiting rooms. The audio spotlight device, created by Holosonic Research Labs Inc. of Watertown, Mass., has been used to hawk everything from cereals in supermarket aisles to glasses at doctor's offices. The messages are often quick and targeted - and a little creepy to the uninitiated.

ALTHOUGH I like to keep current on the computer world, I admit to being a bit old-fashioned when it comes to the family room. We're perfectly happy with the 36-inch analog television we bought a couple of years ago. It delivers a crisp, color picture, and we haven't yet found any compelling reason to spend three or four times as much for HDTV. The only real complaint we have is the sound -- the TV speakers don't deliver much in the way of fidelity. Hooking up the cable box or DVD to our stereo receiver produces better quality, but it sounds unnatural -- particularly with dialogue -- because our equally old-fashioned speakers are set rather far apart.

Rod Cofield has the building. Now he needs the tools. Cofield's team at Historic London Town and Gardens has built a reproduction of a carpentry shop at the Colonial site in Edgewater. Now, to show how carpenters worked at the site in the 1700s, he has to find tools from that era. "We have a few tools. … It's not as if we can go to Lowe's or Home Depot to find what we need," Cofield said. Such are the challenges of running a historic site that's part museum, part gardens, part archaeological site and part wedding venue.

The Sun's editorial board really should read the Supreme Court decision, not just the dissent, before you write an editorial on it ( "Corporations v. People," July 1). First, this decision concerns only the contraceptive mandate and should not be understood to hold that all insurance coverage mandates - vaccinations or blood transfusions, for example - must necessarily fall if they conflict with an employer's religious beliefs. Nor does it provide a shield for employers who might cloak illegal discrimination as a religious practice.

According to his challengers in the Democratic primary, John W. Anderson is woefully unqualified to continue as Baltimore's sheriff. He's mismanaged his agency, they say, allowed thousands of warrants to go unserved and kept an intentionally low profile because he has nothing to show for his 25 years in office. Anderson dismisses the charges as mere politics. "There's no mismanagement here," he says. "We're running a good, sound agency. " Wherever the truth lies, the race for Baltimore's sheriff is shaping up to be one of the most competitive in years.

On Friday, the Columbia Association named Milton Matthews as its news president. He replaces Phil Nelson, president for the last five years whose contract was not renewed by the CA board. On the surface, the hiring of Matthews seems to make sense. He worked for nearly a decade as the chief executive officer of the Reston Association, an organization that oversees the planned community of Reston, Va. Both Reston and the Reston Association are similar to Columbia and CA, including assessing a fee or lien to residents who live in the community, So, it's a pretty good gamble that Matthews knows what he's getting into by leading Columbia's quasi-homeowner's association and its $65 million budget.

The early candidate for rap album of the year begins with a mother warning her son to stop following in the footsteps of his incarcerated father. The colorfully delivered advice was given to Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, the 24-year-old rapper better known as YG who performs Wednesday at Baltimore Soundstage. Although YG did not adhere to the counsel (he spent six months in jail for residential burglary before he signed to Def Jam in 2009), the Compton, Calif., MC proved he was on his own path with the release of “My Krazy Life,” an acclaimed first album that debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in March.

Even before news of the Penn State child sexual abuse scandal broke several years ago, parents had long been wary of leaving youngsters in the hands of strangers, and justifiably so. Those who assume the role of a coach, like that of a teacher or clergyman, deserve some extra scrutiny because of the potential risks and vulnerabilities involved. So why not mandate that all recreational coaches and volunteers go through background checks? Clearly, the goal is worthwhile - to reduce the incidence of child abuse.

I clip and save all your advice columns but haven't found a solution for my problem - getting sound to play after I upgraded my MSN 8 software to MSN 9. I did a quick restore and reinstalled my printer and scanner and reinstalled MSN 8, which had no problem, yet still no sound. I have tried everything a novice can do, checked all cable connections and speakers, and don't know what else to try. It's easier to point you to the fix than it is to explain why this problem vexes so many folks.

On screen in Poseidon, the coming remake of the 1972 disaster movie about a capsized ocean liner, actor Kurt Russell jumps into the water to swim for his life. Off screen, John Roesch sits in a bathtub, splashing to match Russell's motions. An editor in a recording booth captures the sounds on tape. When Russell dives beneath the surface, air rushing out of his lungs, Roesch puts a garden hose to his lips and blows bubbles. "It's a silly job. What can I say?" quips Roesch, who at 52 is one of Hollywood's top "foley artists."

HBO today announced that it is renewing "Veep" for a fourth season and will return to Baltimore to produce it.

During a 7-0 opening stretch, Maryland averaged 13.1 goals per game. Since then, the Terps are 2-2 and have scored 10.5 goals per game - a number that would drop to 7.7 if a 19-6 thumping of Robert Morris on April 2 was left out of the equation. The sudden power outage is eerily similar to last year's progression, as that squad scored at least 10 goals in its first six games before failing to reach the double-digit mark in six of the last eight. But coach John Tillman did not sound alarmed about the offense's inability to find success against No. 7 North Carolina (eight goals in a three-goal loss)
