Ironic that the very day that Dan Rodricks attacks Pat McDonough for his candid and truthful assessment of gang crime downtown ("Conflicting realities collide downtown," May 24), The Sun buries on page 4 the attack by 20-30 "unruly" teens at the 7-Eleven at Light and Pratt streets - the heart of the Inner Harbor in the middle of a workday! Say what you want, Mr. Rodricks, but facts are facts, and Baltimore is not typical of other cities. You want to feel secure walking around town?

I am a Baltimore resident who is saddened every year to watch so many city trees die needlessly due to lack of water. The city often does a poor job of planting trees, and I've observed trees being left near the planting sites for days to dry out before they are put in the ground. Then the soil in which they are planted is often poorly amended or completely unimproved. I've witnessed many trees that were planted too low or too high in the ground. Frequently, they are not mulched or sometimes mulched with fresh wood chips which suck some of the nitrogen from the soil, rather than aged mulch which returns nutrients and better retains moisture.

Left-handed pitcher Dana Eveland is on his way to Baltimore today and is expected to start Friday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Eveland, 28, was 3-2 with a 2.21 ERA in six starts at Triple-A Norfolk. Eveland is taking the spot that had been Tommy Hunter's, but Hunter was sent to Norfolk on Monday. Hunter has since returned and will pitch tonight in the second game of the doubleheader in place of Jason Hammel. Hammel's turn was skipped because he is dealing with soreness in his right knee.

While perusing an urban planning website recently from my office here in Honolulu, I learned with great sadness that the iconic and unique Baltimore Formstone building material is to be banned under new city design guidelines. Having lived my early adult years in Mount Vernon on St. Paul Street after a stint overseas in the Peace Corps in the mid-1990's, I have fond memories of Charm City, its quirky eccentricities, its incredible people and its unbelievable neighborhoods. No other streetscape better identifies Baltimore to the outside world than a block of Formstone-clad row houses with their scrubbed white stoops and sprinkled with a few painted screens throughout.

Maria Cristina Gutierrez, a criminal defense lawyer known in Maryland's legal community for her passionate and pugnacious style, died of a heart attack yesterday at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson. The 52-year-old woman's ailment was exacerbated by multiple sclerosis. Throughout the 1990s, Ms. Gutierrez argued cases with a tenacity that earned the respect of her peers. Upon graduating from the University of Baltimore School of Law in 1980, she began her career as an assistant public defender in Baltimore.

A 31-year-old Baltimore man has been charged in the killing of one man and the wounding of another in a hail of gunfire at a city intersection early Saturday morning, following a dispute at a night club, according to Baltimore police. Tion Bolden, of the 5200 block of Reisterstown Road in the city's Woodmere neighborhood, faces 10 charges in the case and remains in police custody. Police announced his arrest Sunday, after saying Saturday that they were questioning a person of interest.

Let's face it: Charm City can be a strange place. That's one of the reasons we like it so much. From toilet races in Hampden to hilariously lewd bathroom signs, Baltimore has a quirky sensibility few other cities can match. View the photo gallery We rounded up more than a dozen photos of weird and funny Baltimore sights for a photo essay we're calling Only in Baltimore. If you have odd Baltimore photos you want to send us, you can email them to onlyinbaltimore@gmail.com .

I very much enjoyed Frank Roylance's column relating the fate of the duck and her chicks crossing the busy roads of rush hour Baltimore and the parallels with the classic story by Robert McCloskey in Boston. The story was read to me as a child, and decades later I read it to my children who also enjoyed both the Boston and Baltimore versions. (They also liked the '50s era film version shown at the Pratt one Saturday morning.) When visiting Boston two years ago, I was crossing the Public Garden to meet an old friend for dinner and happened across the commemorative sculptures of the mother duck and ducklings that commemorate Mr. McCloskey's story.

Yeah! Finally someone (Mary Carole McCauley) wrote about the wonderful graffiti in Baltimore ("Making their mark," Dec. 27) - especially being able to do it without breaking the law! Going back and forth to New York on the train, one can see lots of great lettering along the tracks - I've often shown this to my grandchildren, mentioning that if only someone could get these people into an art school, they would probably "bloom" and do good works. And, thanks to Sherwin Mark and Karly Fae Hansen for promoting a place where Baltimoreans and tourists can enjoy the works of these talented people.
