A rusted old Chevy Impala fell victim. As did a new red Cadillac. And a block over, Thomas Saunders' gold Grand Caravan also was hit. On Monday morning, residents in one corner of West Baltimore woke up to find that someone had shot out their car windows. In the chilly air, a group of police officers looked over the damage and took reports. Neighbors, on their porches and in the street, looked on. "This used to be a really nice street," Saunders, 57, said. In all, police counted at least eight damaged cars in the 2200 blocks of N. Dukeland St. and N. Koko Lane.

Not so long ago, a dilapidated house stood on the corner of Jenifer Avenue and 30th Street in Baltimore's Montebello community, a magnet for drug users and dealers. But now the house has been torn down, and a mural is planned that will fill the space "with color and joy," said Natalya Brusilovsky, the healthy neighborhoods coordinator for the Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello Community Corp., a nonprofit community association. The mural is the brainchild of Gabrielle Elkaim, a 29-year-old Mount Vernon resident who works for the federal government and is taking a seminar through a program called Landmark Education that requires her to "create a project that inspires," she said.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is absolutely correct in its criticism of Baltimore's use and monitoring of federal grants, which city Housing Commissioner Robert W. Hearn is trying to dismiss as a "rehash" of earlier audits.The latest HUD audit reveals a situation that boggles the mind. The $237,000 relocation of a West Baltimore bottling company has escalated into a $5.5 million boondoggle that may not even benefit the city because the company wants to move its plant HTC and 40 jobs to Harford County!

VISITING THE Christmas light show on West 34th Street in Hampden was not my No. 1 priority this past Sunday night. I was out with a group; we'd had our fill of holiday cheer, and the destination was on the way home. I guess my reluctance was that I'd been there so many times before. What could all those kilowatts show me, a seen-it-all-before city dweller? I was wrong. So wrong. It was a mild evening with a silvery full moon sitting over the Wyman Park treetops. Somewhere in the distance was a fire.

THOUSANDS of NAACP members descended on Baltimore for their convention this week, prompting visits to the major tourist attractions that line the Pratt Street corridor. What most of the hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit the Inner Harbor each year don't realize is that they are walking on sacred ground, where countless thousands of men, women, and children suffered during Baltimore's darkest hour. Between 1815 and 1860, traders in Baltimore made the port one of the leading disembarkation points for ships carrying slaves to New Orleans and other ports in the deep South.

As a 15-year resident of Baltimore City, I am still astonished by the idea of the Red Line being developed as it is designed ( "Forward thinking on the Red Line," July 28). The idea of the Red Line is to bring access from the west and east wings to the downtown area. As a resident of the Fells Point-Canton area, I do not know one resident who feels this is a good idea or desirable for our community. North Avenue is basically a ghost town with more boarded up blocks of homes than anywhere else in the city.

As he waited for a cab to take him to visit his parents, Myers, 36, of Washington, D.C., looked out on the scene. "With the news, I guess I'm not completely surprised," he said.

The opening of the Edgar Allan Poe House at 30 Amity Street was a small milestone in preserving important historical realities of Baltimore City. This opening also represented a significant achievement by a small number of citizens who realized that cooperative nonprofit action can serve a constructive purpose. It is interesting to note that the French sociologist Alexis de Tocqueville, in his work "Democracy in America," in the 1830s noted that Americans "are forever forming associations.

He returned four hours later to find the side door ajar and his possessions gone.

Real estate experts offered a gloomy view of the market for some of the office space in the core of downtown, telling the Baltimore Development Corp. Thursday it is becoming harder for owners of offices along the Baltimore and Charles Street corridors to find tenants. Overall vacancy rates are at about 17.8 percent, down from the 2010 peak of 20.8 percent, according to Jones Lang LaSalle, which presented to the BDC at its monthly meeting. Along the Pratt Street corridor, where many of the premium properties are located, vacancy hit a five-year low of 14.9, according to the presentation.
