The U.S. Naval Academy made history last month when Midshipman Kevin Hillery became the first paraplegic to graduate. At the May 29 graduation, he commemorated the landmark occasion with a wheelie off the stage, to the thrill of his 1,098 classmates and an awestruck audience.

Baltimore, I think I have found your biggest fan. Her name is Rebecca Murphy and she describes her devotion to the city as “bordering on the weird.”
“I love every last bit of it, I mean, I am still a die hard Orioles fan.” Enough said.
Rebecca’s passion for the city is not all lip service either, she works as director of special projects in the Mayors’s office (“it means I can be doing a different job every day”) and counts being engaged in improving the city as one of her greatest joys.
When you get to know Rebecca it is easy to see where all that passion for her hometown comes from. Her Baltimore roots run deep. The mother of two and Bryn Mawr and Western alum is a fourth-generation Baltimorean (her father is acclaimed attorney Billy Murphy) with a rich family tradition, a tradition where food took center stage. “My grandmother would ‘bring it’ for family dinners every Sunday,” she says. So it’s no surprise that when Rebecca talks about her restaurant picks, her focus is simple: good food and good people.
