The city's zoning board on Tuesday denied an appeal by a Federal Hill group to create an open-air beer garden across from the Cross Street Market. Board members voted 3-2 to grant conditional approval to the courtyard beer garden in the first block of Cross Street, but the appeal needed a four-vote majority to pass. Board Chairman Geoffrey Washington, who voted for the appeal, proposed several conditions. The bar would have to operate as a restaurant, selling more food than beer.

Staring down a gun barrel in the Columbine High School library, Cassie Bernall was faced with one of Christianity's ultimate questions: Do you believe in God? Her answer in the shadow of death has transformed the 17-year-old into a powerful symbol of faith, particularly for evangelical Christians, who consider Cassie a modern-day martyr. In just under three weeks, since she was one of 12 students shot and killed at the Littleton, Colo., school, she has become the subject of sermons and the hot topic in youth group discussions throughout Christendom.

"We're facing a $121 million deficit," said Councilwoman Helen L. Holton, head of the council's finance committee. "What do we do?" Holton and other committee members gently chided a group of business leaders who came to a public hearing to complain, reminding them repeatedly of the city's dismal financial state and all but declaring that, if taxes are not raised, disaster will follow.
