Antonio Harrell signed up to design and build competition robots at Dunbar High School because, he says, he "didn't have anything else to do. " Three years later, the 18-year-old senior has gotten so good at engineering robots, he's teaching Baltimore's business leaders how to use them. "He did a great job.

Living in the shadow of the Naval Academy chapel, Ellis Richman and his wife, Dr. Ingrid Kohlstadt, are exactly where they want to be - nestled in the heart of historic Annapolis. Theirs is no ordinary house among a bevy of notable properties. Woven into the rich tapestry of Colonial architecture that marks Maryland's capital city landscape are the grande dames of Queen Anne-style homes erected in the Victorian era. The couple owns one of a twin pair of homes built in the early 1890s by lumber and hardware merchant Joseph S.M. Basil.

On a Saturday morning in December, well before the sun was up, 3-year-old Bobby Mercado was up and ready to go. His destination: the North Pole. First came the long drive to Washington Dulles International Airport, a ride which, despite light traffic, seemed to take forever. As Bobby and his parents, Jean and Robert Mercado, approached the airport, a series of three large flashing signs directed them - as well as other children who were arriving - to special parking for the North Pole flight.

I was not prepared for the sheer candlepower of Harbor East when I went in search of some early Christmas spirit this week. Moving along Albemarle Street, where the holiday lights burned hot and bright, I made some mental comparisons with the old Howard Street and its department stores. Hands down, Harbor East outperformed the staid department stores. The place had a nighttime energy - and the circle at President Street reminded me of a kind of Times Square bustle. The traffic was maddening but there was no getting away from the reality that this part of downtown Baltimore is an authentic December destination.
