Patrick Sutton has a set of core beliefs that he says guide his interior designs. They are: Sense of place is necessary "A project should feel like where it is. Having traveled as much as I have, you see why certain locations have a quality about them. And people choose to live in those places for those qualities. New York isn't the Eastern Shore. " A house should be a home "Our houses should reflect the way we live. A house should not be frozen in time. And there is nothing more inhospitable than a modern house that has severed itself from its history.

The rigor required to create a Nantucket lightship basket puts the lie to any cheap jokes about learning the craft. “If these baskets are made perfectly,” says Leslie Goldsmith, “they should be able to hold water.” Consumers today associate the baskets “with the oval purses and a lid,” Goldsmith says. But she and her fellow weavers in the Nantucket Basket Guild are drawn to the historical legacy and precision of the craft. “These baskets are made the same way sailors made them in the 1800s,” she says.

In the rare moments when he speaks candidly about running for president, Gov. Martin O'Malley uses phrases such as "fundamentally newer" and "new way of leadership" to describe his approach - language intended to highlight the data-driven management style for which he is widely recognized. But it isn't hard to read another, more subtle message between the lines: The young, guitar-slinging governor represents a more youthful crop of Democrats, while the presumed front-runner for the nomination in 2016, Hillary Clinton, might struggle to do so. As he winds down his final months in Annapolis and crisscrosses the country in anticipation of a full-scale national campaign, O'Malley has delicately tried to draw contrasts with the former first lady, senator and secretary of state without appearing confrontational - or even using her name.

In full disclosure, let me say that I have served on Liz Bobo's Reelection Committee. We will miss her terribly when she retires. Liz has exhibited the best qualities I want in a politician. She is open, transparent, straightforward, independent, direct, and does not pander to donors. I haven't always agreed with Liz over the many years of her service. On those occasions, she wanted to hear my reasons. She didn't walk away or avoid me. She would hear me out. When we agreed to disagree, our disagreement was OK with her. She does not equate loyalty or intelligence with agreement.

It's back-to-college time, and if you want to get off to a fashionably great start, the last thing you need is to get stuck with a bunch of nice outfits, with no clue about what shoes to wear with them. Sneakers make a great selection because you can do so much with them. You may be happier with your purchase if you get a pair you can add style to. Just by lacing your shoes in a different way, you can enhance a once-dull shoe, as well as the look and feel of your whole outfit. There are ways to make a regular sneaker go from basic to flashy, typical to unique.

Sewing is one of those things we often wish we could do well yet never seem to find the time to learn. But for aspiring designer Ashley Holt, it's her ticket into college. "I sent in pictures of things that I made for myself along with fashion sketches," says the 18-year-old Fallston High School senior. "And I got accepted into the fashion-design program at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City" -- the school for future fashionistas. Holt's been sewing since sixth grade, honing her skills by "trial and error" and turning them into quick cash -- by setting up an embroidery business on the side -- and one-of-a-kind clothing.

Even if she tosses on a pair of shorts without giving her appearance a second thought, people tell Shirley E. Muldrow how fine she looks. She's no longer a young woman, but you wouldn't know it by her fashion-model silhouette and her ageless face. The lifelong member of Morning Star Baptist Church of Christ in West Baltimore has been mistaken for a sister to her daughters. Once a Flair fashion model, Muldrow, also a former teacher and telephone company employee, still participates in fashion shows for charity and political fund-raising events.

Ellie Schapiro learned how to dress from the one of the century's best-known mavens of taste. Schapiro's grandfather, Joseph E. Davies, a one-time ambassador to Russia, happened to have married Marjorie Merriweather Post, heir to the Post cereal fortune. Her clothes were gorgeous, Schapiro says. "If she liked a certain style, she'd have it done in every color, shoes and bags to match." Some of those exquisite things were handed down to Schapiro from her step-grandmother, who found them "a bit regal for me."

When she returns to Baltimore, Zoey Washington walks the streets with relative anonymity. She'll pop into local boutiques unnoticed. This isn't the reception you would expect for a woman who founded a nationally recognized styling collective, LittleBird, focused on the teen and tween demographic, and who has held editing positions with some of the world's best-known glossies. Washington, a 31-year-old graduate of Garrison Forest School and Columbia University, prefers it that way. But Washington's resume reads like a who's who of fashion elite: She's held positions at Marie Claire, Vogue and Essence.

Nothing can justify the looting and violence by those who used the shooting of Michael Brown by a Ferguson, Mo., police officer as an opportunity to destroy the businesses and property of residents who had no hand in what happened and we should condemn the actions that have overshadowed the rights of citizens to peacefully protest. Yet the presence of military-style equipment in response to such demonstrations of civil disobedience should also be scrutinized. I spent more than 30 years in law enforcement, first as a Maryland state trooper, then as the public safety director in Prince George's County.

To Jennifer Vick, being on the sidelines doesn't mean you are out of the game - the fashion game. Vick, a Glen Arm resident, spent years watching her sons, Porter, 13, and Mason, 15, play lacrosse. While at the games, she noticed more and more girls playing the sport. But they often showed up to practice and games wearing "boys' stuff. " "The fit was not good, and the clothes were not relevant," she said. Vick also saw a lack of lacrosse-style clothing geared toward sisters and mothers watching the games.

Jon Cole knew who he wanted to serve as his best man. The former McDonogh and Virginia soccer star, now 33, had high school pals and college teammates who floated in and out of his life, but one guy was constant. His high school coach, Steve Nichols, went from mentor to father figure to big brother to best friend over 20 years. At the time, two summers ago, Nichols joked at Cole's request: "I'm 43 years old, why me?" Cole never thought twice. "He's like the brother I never had," said Cole, who married in June 2012.

When Evelyn Gorman bought her then-10-year-old contemporary brick townhouse in Ruxton 25 years ago, change was the first order of business. To this seasoned interior designer from New York City, there was no reason not to create everything in her style - one she calls "country French in an eclectic, sophisticated approach. " The obvious starting point was getting rid of the 1980s kitchen that was prominently avocado green. "I have always tried to be true to my own design concepts," said the award-winning designer and former interior design columnist for the Baltimore Jewish Times.

Third in a summer series highlighting dream homes on the water. When Wendy and Alex Haig set out five years ago to find the perfect weekend retreat, they were torn between two different bucolic areas: the rolling horse country of Middleburg, Va., and the wide expanse of the Chesapeake Bay. "The bay very clearly won out," Wendy Haig says. Alex Haig, a lawyer and son of former Secretary of State Alexander Haig, and his wife, a managing partner for a marketing strategy company, wanted a place where they could relax with family and friends and escape from the pressures of Washington.

Ravens free safety Darian Stewart delivered such a punishing tackle two years ago while playing for the St. Louis Rams that the impact knocked Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams off his feet and sent him crashing to the ground. The big hit left Williams woozy for several minutes, ultimately knocking him out of the game. Although somewhat undersized, strong safety Matt Elam emerged as a feared player in the Southeastern Conference with a series of devastating hits. The Ravens drafted him in the first round last year because of his aggressive nature.
