    Wandering Eye: Celebrating a Fells Point savior, credit card bloodsuckers, and the latest from Ferguson
    For those who had fun in Fells Point during the Star-Spangled Spectacular this past weekend, something's happening tonight that recognizes someone whose efforts meant Fells Point remains a happening place: the late Lucretia Billings "Lu” Fisher. She died in 2011, when she was 98, but two generations earlier her stake in Fells Point real estate meant she could help spearhead a legal challenge to a planned 16-lane connector between I-95 and the Jones Falls Expressway, a highway that, if built, would have leveled much of Fells Point and Federal Hill and installed elevated highways and interchanges all across the Inner Harbor. The project was killed, thanks in no small measure to Fisher's spirited contributions to what was called "the road fight." "If she'd not gotten involved," says the Preservation Society's executive director, Ellen von Karajan, Fells Point "would have little to celebrate or might not even exist. She really reached out and had the connections and grit to galvanize the community here, which was all at odds and ends, and she stuck with the road fight for ten long years." Tonight, during an event that lasts from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Fells Point Visitor Center at 1724 Thames St. will be renamed in Fisher's honor. (Van Smith)

    If you love asparagus, this is your spring. At least according to the buzz at the Waverly Farmer's Market last Saturday. Ample rain, both last fall and this spring, said several farmers, is responsible for the surfeit of asparagus from the Eastern Shore...

    News Hole

    Free Money: The extension of Key Highway from its endpoint at the Domino Sugar plant to Nicholson Street and Tide Point is much needed. And kudos to the Board of Estimates for coming up with a deal to finance it. But I don't see anything in there about...

    Firefly Farms Cheese is Addictive

    I have a new food obsession thanks to the Baltimore Farmers' Market (Holliday and Saratoga streets, under the Jones Falls Expressway, (410) 752-8632, bop.org). I am absolutely hooked on Firefly Farms cheese. The Garrett County farm makes all its artisanal...
