To Stony Brook fans, Tommy Brenton is an irreplaceable forward almost maniacally obsessed with winning. To supporters of other America East schools, Brenton's like an 80's-era pro wrestling heel, relishing their taunting signage and thriving on their verbal barbs. And to at least one former assistant coach in the conference, Brenton is simply "a pain in the a--" to play against. “I think that's a great sign of respect if they hate playing against me, but [would] love having me on their team,” said Brenton, the reigning America East Defensive Player of the Year.

A running debate among my friends is which Baltimore bar has the most prime location. We all prioritize different elements, but the answer always seemed clear in my mind: 1629 Thames St., the peninsular Fells Point spot that most recently housed Shuckers for an eight-year run that ended last summer. When I first arrived in Baltimore in 2008, we would often visit Shuckers, for bar crawls, happy hours and late at night. We could drink on the patio and enjoy the view of the harbor, and the atmosphere was laid-back.

Throwing a party is no reason to panic ­ - or spend a fortune. One of Chef Nikki McGowan's go-to party dishes is a huge pot of mussels, which she loves because they are simple to prepare and inexpensive - but also delicious and fun to eat.  McGowan, who teaches cooking classes for kids and adults at CKCS Foods (ckcsweb.com), serves the mussels in big bowls with lots of bread for dipping. Kids love getting a little messy, and even the less-adventurous eaters can be coaxed into dipping a piece of crusty bread into the sauce.  For adults, the dish's exotic flavors are a hit. And for the host, mussels mean only a few minutes in the kitchen - and a small price tag, even when feeding a crowd.

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.

A contemporary, villa-style home made of brick and cedar siding, found at 4205 Sweet Air Road in Baldwin, is for sale for $675,000. Resting on nearly 1.5 acres, the property is a golfer's dream with a professionally designed five-hole putting green that backs up to a meadow and pond. Brick entry posts with lanterns sit at the foot of the recently repaved driveway, while curved brick steps lead to the home's impressive entrance. "This is a well-built house, close to walking paths and shopping," said Lynn Plack, listing agent with the Hubble Bisbee Group of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

It was the summer of 1964, and Harry Williams was in a hurry. One Monday, the 21-year-old asked his girlfriend, Charlotte, to marry him. They were in love and couldn't wait to get married, he remembers. They said "I do" that Saturday. Fifty years later, the couple returned to the place they exchanged vows on that June day. Today, the Historic Little Wedding Chapel in Elkton is the last remnant of what was once a booming wedding industry in this Cecil County town off U.S. 40. "He's been an amazing husband," Charlotte Williams, now 68, said on a recent Saturday, when they took a private bus filled with family members from New Jersey to Maryland to renew their vows.

Remington, as neighborhoods go, is hot. The neighborhood is conveniently close to the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University . Charles Village is just to the east - Howard Street is the dividing line - and Hampden is just across the way. There have always been popular spots here, places like The Dizz and Ottobar , but now there are more. Part of a former garage on Howard Street has been converted into an avant-garde theater. The other part is now a butcher shop and restaurant from the owners of Woodberry Kitchen . There's another new restaurant worth knowing about - Sweet 27. OK, it's not exactly a new restaurant.

This spring, roughly 1.6 million newly minted U.S. college graduates are exiting the campus cocoon and entering a world that is by turns encouraging, indifferent and often unsettling in the fullness of its ambiguity. The college GPS is now switched off, and most graduates have yet to settle on a new model. It's tough out here in the real world, so let's not sugar-coat it. And let's try, for once, to resist the urge to overwhelm these fledgling adults with truckloads of unhelpful - and unasked-for - advice.

The Sugar Association greatly appreciated being included in your recent coverage of the World Health Organization's suggested limits on sugar consumption ( "Officials urge consumers to cut back on sugar," March 21). However, it is important to emphasize that when the media talk about the consumption of "sugar-sweetened" or "sugary beverages," they often are inaccurately lumping sugar from sugar cane and sugar beets in with man-made sweeteners such as high-fructose corn syrup.
