Looks like the French may not be flocking to Charm City anytime soon. Seems Baltimore's not really a safe destination, at least as far as the French foreign ministry is concerned. Just as our state department warns about Americans traveling to certain places (it suggests avoiding North Korea, for example), the French are urged to exercise caution in certain U.S. locales. And what do the French say about Baltimore? "Considered a dangerous city except Downtown. " But don't feel too bad; few American cities fared that much better.

Player of the Year Carmelo Anthony, Towson Catholic: Anthony may be the area's most complete player. Maryland, Syracuse and North Carolina are among dozen of high-profile Division I programs that have the versatile 6-foot-7 junior near the top of its recruiting wish list. A first-team All-Catholic League performer during the regular season and postseason tournament, Anthony averaged 23.1 points, 10.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists for the Owls, who won the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference Tournament title and was runner-up to St. Maria Goretti in the Catholic League Tourney.

The Baltimore Grand Prix appeared to be a great success. We decided at the last minute on Friday to see what was happening. After taking the light rail, we found ourselves in a prime spot along the fence on Pratt Street and the fun began. It was loud and exciting seeing Indy cars zoom by. There was a great energy in the city and the race was accessible for paying and non-paying fans. It was just fun. Yay, Baltimore Lissa Abrams, Baltimore

I have lived in Baltimore for over 40 years and I have never been so proud nor so impressed with the city as I have been this past weekend. The Sailabration was beautifully orchestrated, and the organizers deserve much credit for a flawless event. The tall ships and all the visiting ships were magnificent with eager visitors. The Blue Angels were simply thrilling. The harbor was overflowing with happy families. Pierce's Park, our newest park along the water near Pier V, was jammed with joyful children, happy parents and an extraordinary mix of people so impressed with this city.

The pros of Baltimore's visionary Gran Prix IndyCar race are plentiful, while the cons are petty and inconsequential. If Baltimore can alter the "Homicide" image popularized by David Simon's successful book and television series, we'll be ahead of the game no matter how much of a profit the event ends up making. Baltimore has really lost its luster among people we met during recent trips abroad and out west -- even in Denver, where they have done a beautiful job in successfully duplicating our downtown stadiums and Harborplace attractions.

Since many publications are coming out with their men and women of the year, I thought I would nominate some of our local talent for The Sun's consideration. First, how about city schools CEO AndrĂ©s Alonso and Police Commissioner Frederick H. HHHBealefeld III? These two guys have labored persistently under difficult circumstances to produce measurable — even if modest — results in their respective territories where their predecessors struggled. They have put Baltimore at times in the national limelight and make us proud.

In response to the letter regarding Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby ("Does Nick Mosby have nothing better to do?" Aug. 13), I would point out first that Councilman Mosby is not calling for a total boycott of Florida. He is suggesting that the city of Baltimore continue to do business with those organizations for which it already has contracts. But in the future, it should review and minimize business dealings with the state of Florida. When it comes to selecting a company, if there is one in Florida and one in another state, the city should consider the company outside of Florida, Second, letter writer Bill Tavernier of Deltona, Fla. is obviously not aware that every Friday evening for the past 19 Fridays Councilman Mosby has been on a different street corner in his district promoting his "Enough is Enough Peace Program.

A news story and a Dan Rodricks ' column about the marvels of Baltimore buildings in one day - my cup runneth over ("New colors for old church" and "Let your eyes wander to see city shine," Sept. 12)! I'm not from the city, but the magnificence of local architecture is astounding and too frequently overlooked by city residents. Years ago I used to give tours of City Hall, and today I'm helping folks explore the beauty of The Clarence M. Mitchell, Jr. Courthouse as a docent at The Museum of Baltimore Legal History.
