The problem: An alley in Northeast Baltimore lacks streetlights. The back story: Alverta Furman and her daughter, Mary, have been calling Watchdog for months about the lack of streetlights in the alley behind their home in the 5300 block of Catalpha Road, in the Harford-Echodale-Perring Parkway community. Without the lights, they say, they have been the victims of property crimes such as theft. Alverta Furman said her car's license plates were stolen in November, and someone also took her copper gutters.

T he Load of Fun graffiti alley isn't visible from the intersection of North Avenue and Howard Street, which is gray and beige and blighted and grim. Nearby is a nondescript motel and a check-cashing service with a barred entrance. But when visitors walk north on Howard Street and turn onto the quirkily named 19 1/2 Street, suddenly, there the alley is. People abruptly stop walking and even lean back slightly. They draw in their chins and swallow their breaths. It's almost like stepping into an ancient walled European city or an outdoor urban cathedral.

More information has been released about the severely injured puppy found in a Baltimore alley Wednesday: It now appears she had been set on fire. Officials at the Noah's Arks Rescue in South Carolina, where the 6-month-old pup was transported, say Petunia (formerly called Deacon) has an extreme case of demodex, or mites. And she has wounds consistent with being severely burned. She is in critical care and will remain in that condition for some time, but is being heavily medicated so her wounds don't hurt.  She was originally taken to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's controversial comments about walking across the street if he saw a young black man wearing a hoodie coming toward him late at night got me to thinking about an experience I had 30 years ago. One night while walking from my Charles Village home to my car, I noticed two young black men walking toward me. It was very dark since the street light had blown out. Should I cross the street? I asked myself, concluding that such a move would be racist since they had just as much right to the sidewalk as I did. I continued walking.

Much of the charm of Fells Point is found in its narrow back alleys and side streets - contributing to the area's original grid from land purchased by William Fell in the early 1700s. Many of the homes on these streets date to the mid-18th to 19th centuries, as the community began to flourish. Katy Greene Davis and her husband, Michael Davis, bought one of these three-story brick rowhouses on such an alley off Lancaster Street in 1994. "It was two apartments when we bought it for $82,500," Greene Davis said.

Last week, I got mugged. Or, quasi-mugged. My urge to imbibe thwarted by Baltimore's proscription of Sunday liquor store sales, I'd ended up in the back of Charles Village Pub with a book and a Dale's Pale Ale. After a couple hours of reading and rumination, I paid my tab. Walking the three blocks back from the bar and talking on the phone, I had just entered the alley abutting my apartment when a gun-wielding figure appeared from behind....
