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.

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.
