The Pikesville resident was 95. Born in Baltimore and raised on West Lanvale Street, he was a 1933 Polytechnic Institute graduate and earned a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Alabama, where he had a sports scholarship. Family members said that while he was at the university, Mr. Thaler played as a starter on the varsity football team and was a teammate of Paul William "Bear" Bryant, who went on to coach the Alabama team.

Justin Thaler didn't seem to mind that he was trailing. In fact, that was part of his strategy. At the Class 2A-1A Central regional indoor track and field championships last night at the 5th Regiment Armory, Thaler, a junior from Pikesville, allowed Southern-Baltimore freshman Joshua Johnson to take a commanding lead in the 1,600 meters. But midway through the third lap of the eight-lap race, Thaler caught Johnson and passed him en route to his second regional title of his career. "He took control of the race and took the burden off of me," said Thaler, who finished in 5 minutes, 15.1 seconds.

Coming to the Maryland Historical Society on Sept. 15 is The Artist: A Drama Without Words, the world premiere of an opera written by H.L. Mencken, with music by Ludwig van Beethoven and Louis Cheslock. So, you didn't know that the Sage of Baltimore wrote an opera. Well, kind of. It began life as an experimental play written by Mencken in 1912. Four years later, it became the Vagabond Players' first production. The play, called "a drama without words," consists of the unspoken thoughts of a visiting German pianist and those of his audience and critics during a recital.

George J. Thaler Inc. has about one million stove parts on hand in the 5,000 bins of its red brick building at the corner of Madison Street and Central Avenue. All this is the legacy of the firm's 130-year history. That history is now ending. The store opened by Lorenz Thaler, a tinsmith and roofer who emigrated from Germany, is going out of business.Over the years, the Thaler firm has withstood many crises. First came central heating, then tin roofs became obsolete. And even though wood-burning stoves are now experiencing a renaissance of sorts, this unique tin-ceilinged store's owners have decided that enough is enough.

Joe Thaler wasn't sure how he'd feel when his family's century-old stove shop was torn down.A year ago, he said: "Maybe I'll look back for the last time and shed a tear, but then maybe again I won't."He didn't.The bulldozers were at the Thaler building in Old Town Baltimore this week, slowly bringing down a seven-sided, 19th-century building where five generations of Baltimoreans had bought stoves and stove parts. Mr. Thaler, great-grandson of founder Lorenz Thaler, went out of business in early 1993, selling the building to the city for $72,500.

The skirl of bagpipes breaks the evening stillness in downtown Towson, and the surprise of it slows passing cars and pulls pedestrians out of a nearby ice cream shop.The centuries-old music of tears and wars is played by the Police Emerald Society Pipe Band of Baltimore, which practices Wednesday nights at Trinity Episcopal Church on Allegheny Avenue. On this evening, the band's youngest piper, 10-year-old Sean Gearhart, has taken time out from practice to play a reel for a family that came downtown for ice cream.

From 1973 to 1981, James R. Martin Jr. lived in a third-floor apartment above a Christmas merchandise store on Main Street in Annapolis, and he loved every minute of it."It was wonderful," recalled the 48-year-old printer, who now lives in Admiral Heights. "I could go to the movie theater across the street, go to the shops and restaurants downstairs. It was all very convenient."That concept is driving officials at the county Department of Planning and Code Enforcement to contemplate reviving the development style of the Main Street, U.S.A.

If ever there was an apartment built to showcase collections, the Federal Hill home of Ruth Thaler-Carter and Wayne O. Carter would be it.With ceilings soaring to 25 feet and 20-foot windows stretching across living and dining room walls, the Carters' six-room spread in the former auditorium of the old Southern High School resembles an art gallery more than an apartment."
