A 32-year-old man is in critical condition after being attacked in the middle of the day on a downtown Baltimore street, according to his family and police.  John Mason has been hospitalized since Friday in an induced coma with three skull fractures as a result of the attack, which police believe occurred at about 2 p.m. on Friday at Lombard and Howard streets, near the Bromo Seltzer tower. Mason's aunt, Christina Jasi, said he had shoe prints bruised into his head. Police said that witnesses said Mason was attacked by a group of four to five males.

TOP NEWS Garrett Co. still reeling from Sandy-related snowstorm : Sandy ran into a brute of a cold front bearing polar air in Western Maryland.

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.

In his first public comments last week, Police Commissioner-designate Anthony Batts said the headlines out of Baltimore unfairly make crime seem out of control. It's weekends like this past one - which saw four killed in the region and eight shot in Baltimore City - that certainly give rise to that perception even as officials can point to declining crime statistics. -In a tragic example of the collateral damage of the city's gun violence, a 41-year-old man, Leondionas Dias Perez, was struck and killed by a police cruiser as an officer responded to a shooting in the 900 block of Jack St. In that incident, a 49-year-old man awoke in his home to see a man with a knife threatening him and demanding valuables.

Gourmet burger joints have been popping up all over town. Some of them are regional and national chains like Five Guys Burger and Fries and Bobby's Burger Palace. A few independently owned burger boutiques like Baltimore Burger Bar in Hampden and Burger Brothers are competing for the burger-lovers dollar, too. Each one has its specialties and its fans. Charm City Burger opened Downtown on Baltimore Street a few months ago. It's an independently owned joint that you may mistake for a chain.

Like a bee doing a waggle dance to signal a field full of pollen, or a cat rubbing up against a fence post to make a scent chart of its territory, GPS artist Michael Wallace maps out a virtual Baltimore during his bike trips around the city. Using a global positioning system tracking application on his cellphone, the 40-year-old Baltimorean "sketches" elaborate scenes that are superimposed on maps of city streets. He has drawn Godzilla battling Mothra, the lunar landing, the sinking of the Titanic and a horse running at the Preakness.

I'm writing in response to the decision of Baltimore prosecutors to reduce charges in the St. Patrick's beating ("Half of the charges are dropped in taped beating," May 10). I believe that the government should take this case more seriously. They have evidence due to this videotaping that four people beat and robbed a tourist. Is that not enough? Why are the charges being dropped? If you cannot walk down a Baltimore street without being attacked, obviously the government officials are not doing their jobs.

The big hats, the beautiful flowers, the maypole, the lemon peppermint sticks — those are the hallmarks of Baltimore's Flowermart, an oasis of old-fashioned gentility that its organizers promise will stay that way. Which is why it's a little disturbing when its president starts talking about computers and relevancy and modernization. "We're moving into another generation," said Carol Karcher Purcell, president of Flower Mart at Mount Vernon Ltd., which has been running the century-old Baltimore street festival since 2000.

Being new in the field, we of course have not as yet established an exchange list, and cannot make our sheet so varied as we could wish.  In a few days, however, the civil war will be remedied and we doubt not that we shall then be found quite as interesting as our neighbors.  It can scarcely be necessary to bespeak the indulgence of the reader. __________ Persons wishing to take the Sun can have it left at their residence or place of business regularly every morning, by leaving their name and address at the office, 21 Light street, near Baltimore street.
