A Baltimore fair housing watchdog group has settled a dispute with a Carroll County assisted-living center over allegations that the facility discriminated against a potential black applicant by using mostly white models in its advertising. Baltimore Neighborhoods Inc., a statewide fair housing advocate, and William Ray, 79, of Odenton agreed last week to a $22,000 settlement with Golden Crest Assisted Living of the 800 block of Fairfield Ave. in Westminster. "It's a success on everybody's part and good for Golden Crest, too," said Baltimore attorney C. Christopher Brown, representing BNI and Ray. "We think that diverse advertising is good for business.

Some grandparents might bore their friends and neighbors stiff, telling story after story about their grandchildren. Leoma Davisson never has that problem. Her friends and neighbors at the Brighton Gardens assisted-living home in Pikesville simply can't get enough of her oldest grandson - the 85-year-old woman sometimes takes the back stairs down to dinner these days, just to avoid a bit of her newfound celebrity. She is, you see, the grandmother of Michael Phelps, the 19-year-old Rodgers Forge swimmer who has collected four gold medals and six overall at the Olympic Games in Athens.

For some of Carroll County's aging population, retirement at a proposed $20 million community could mean spa days, dances and movies at their doorstep. The Westminster Common Council approved the annexation of the 162-unit Westminster Mews on Monday night after a public hearing in which there was only one dissenting voice. The latest senior-living project created by the Shelter Group, a Baltimore-based developer and property-management firm, the Mews is expected to encompass about 150,000 square feet upon completion in fall next year.

Hoping to help baby boomers as they begin caring for aging parents, Baltimore County's Department of Aging is distributing nearly 200,000 copies of a CD-ROM designed to answer questions about assisted living, nursing homes, retirement communities and more. The free CD, called "Taking Care of Mom and Dad," provides information about the legal protections and resources available to senior citizens and about alternatives for continuing care. "If mom's in the hospital and I'm sitting up at 3 a.m. and worried about her and I can't sleep, now I have the ability to pop this CD in and do all my homework and at 8 a.m., go to work on choosing, making decisions and advocating," said Department of Aging Director Arnold Eppel.

Attention, baby boomers: If you've been hoping to inherit a pot of money after your parents pass on, you might want to rethink it. Boomers aren't going to be inheriting as much as they think, said Laurence J. Kotlikoff, an economics professor at Boston University, who co-wrote a study in 2000 on boomers' inheritance prospects. He stands by his conclusions. For one thing, boomers can expect to receive 15 percent to 20 percent less in their inheritance than they would have gotten three years ago because of the stock market meltdown, he said.

A meeting tonight could help defuse a simmering conflict between the leaders of a small neighborhood church and residents of the Dundalk neighborhood where it is located. The meeting, at 6 p.m. at Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts, 8100 Wise Ave., was arranged by County Councilman John A. Olszewski after constituent complaints about Salem Baptist Church, 49 Inverness Ave. Residents say the church has opened a small assisted-living facility for seniors and will begin operating a high school for learning-disabled boys in September -- each without holding community meetings to apprise homeowners of details regarding those enterprises.
