No longer must you journey to Towson, Perry Hall or Jessup to play mini golf – for this summer and early fall, at least. Station North is getting its very own putt-putt course, thanks to four teams of city students and artists, as well as some brilliant architects and the folks at OpenWorks.

A long-dormant building on Charles Street will come back to life starting today, after a new owner renovated it and moved employees in over the weekend.
It feels like just yesterday that we were warning you, dear readers, about the “the ultimately-good-but-really-stressful-for-the-next-few-years reconstruction of Charles Street” — but in reality, it’s taken two years to complete the construction project aimed at making the area around Johns Hopkins more pedestrian friendly. The reconstruction involved shutting down both north- and south-bound lanes of Charles Street, a major thoroughfare, for months. But drivers take note: That’s about to change, sooner than you might expect.
On March 28, 2013, Dr. Ted Houk was commuting to work, as usual, with a morning run. For years, the Lutherville doctor had become a familiar face to commuters on Charles Street as he jogged past traffic in black bicycle shorts, briefcase in hand, with a long braid down his back. But that March morning nearly six months ago, he was jogging down Charles Street when he was hit on the right leg by the bumper of a car, cracked the car’s windshield, and was immediately flown to Maryland Shock Trauma. The accident left him with numerous fractures in his right leg, two fractures in his right collarbone, four cuts around the left knee, and a chip fracture in his left hip.
Since the accident, Dr. Houk, an internist who practiced independently, has endured surgeries, therapy and more. After months of tender care from his wife – and office manager – Pamela Jenkins, he’s been making a wonderfully rapid recovery. He will return to practicing medicine in January 2014, and hopes to be up and running by 2015.
Maybe you were trying to drive up Charles Street to get to work this morning, only to find this crucial throughway under water — not because of a hurricane, but because a water main broke. Or maybe you (like me) woke up one morning in August to find the sidewalk outside your house had turned into a river. Or maybe you were terrified by the news of the sinkhole that opened in the middle of the street in Southwest Baltimore this summer. In any case, it’s clear by now: Baltimore’s water mains are in terrible shape, and they’re only going to keep breaking. So what’s a city without a whole lot of extra money to spend on improving aging infrastructure to do?
