"This rain may help someone, for we can surely use it," says the man who supervises Tobago's national parks. Drought has parched the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago as it waits for the imminent advent of the rainy season.

Allyson R. Solomon said she is humbled to become the first African-American and the first woman to lead the Maryland Air National Guard. But she has little time to reflect on that achievement. Solomon, a colonel who will be promoted to brigadier general today in a ceremony in Baltimore, said she faces the immediate challenge of finding a new mission for the Guard, which stands to lose eight airlift planes scheduled to be transferred to other states. "We have to find out what is our niche," Solomon said recently in her new office at the Fifth Regiment Armory in Baltimore.

Most of the people attending the 25th annual Fells Point Fun Festival tomorrow and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. will be just looking for the promised fun. But plenty of Fells Point residents will recall the event's origins as a way of calling attention to a historic community that was threatened by a proposed highway in the 1960s.The highway was never built, Fells Point was saved and gentrified, and the festival itself went on in the years ahead to welcome many thousands of visitors. From its modest beginning -- 30 vendors and an estimated crowd of 30,000 -- the free festival has become a huge affair with 300 vendors and crowds of more than 200,000.
