If you have school-aged children, you may have noticed that this generation is learning about our environment differently than their predecessors. Environmental studies, or “ecology” to some, isn’t just a science elective class anymore. With twenty percent of schools certified as Green Schools, Maryland is a leader in integrating environment studies into all grade levels and curricula. Located in Baltimore, Roland Park Country School’s “Peace on Earthbench” is an A+ example of how Maryland’s next generation is learning about our planet. That’s good, because they’ll be saving it.
Nelson Cruz was only with the Orioles for one season, but he made quite the impression. And, apparently, there was more to it than his amazing home run production. Read More →

Art Outside 3 returns to Druid Hill Park this Sunday, May 17 from 11 am to 5 pm. This year’s art festival will feature more than 100 artists from around the Maryland region. They will be a diverse group who reflect a wide array of influences and inspirations from around the region. Among them will be Charles Cooper, a local Baltimore artist who lives on Eutaw Street in Bolton Hill and creates urban art inspired by Baltimore City, its local architecture and music.
Formerly a Baltimore City schools teacher, Charles decided several years ago to resign from teaching and focus on art full time. The result has been the creation of a large portfolio of colorful, fun and unique prints representative of Charles’ outgoing personality and perspective on Baltimore life.
Art Outside 3 will be Charles’ second year participating in this annual arts event. According to Charles, Art Outside is his most favorite arts event of the year thanks to its intimacy and the opportunity to really engage with visitors to the festival as well as other participating artists. “There is a great energy that pervades Art Outside,” said Charles. “Last year I had the opportunity to interact with people from all over the country who seemed genuinely interested in art, collecting art and learning what inspired me to create my works. This grassroots event provides a wonderful opportunity to bring people together from all over the City for a beautiful day around the lake in Druid Hill Park.”
The Baltimore Orioles, like most major-league baseball teams, wear white jerseys featuring the team name for home games. The city name goes on the gray away jerseys. Read More →
