For almost four years, Dan and Mary Ann Winner looked out of the windows of their Bank Street home in Fells Point to their dream home - directly across the street. Happily ensconced in city life, they had purchased the three-story corner rowhouse in 1999. The circa 1855 brick structure, with storefront windows, was once a shoe store. The $69,000 sale price also included a house behind it that fronted on Chapel Street. "It seems we were always waiting for this house," Mary Ann Winner, a 38-year-old homemaker and interior designer, recalled.

In Baltimore's sausage world, there are two Ostrowskis. There is Ostrowski's on Washington Street, a 94-year-old Polish sausage shop that was recently purchased from the Ostrowski family by John Reusing, owner of the neighboring tavern Bad Decisions. Two blocks north, there is Ostrowski of Bank Street, which has been making and selling sausages since 1976. If you see Ostrowski products in grocery stores, they're from Ostrowski of Bank Street. Ostrowski of Bank Street was opened in 1976 by Victor Ostrowski, whose grandfather founded the original Washington Street sausage works in 1919.

Reusing told The Baltimore Sun that he has no intention of changing things at the Fells Point sausage works except to expand the hours in its retail operation. And then, two blocks north, there is Ostrowski of Bank Street, which has been making and selling sausages  since 1976.

Parking on certain streets along the Baltimore waterfront and other parts of the city will be restricted tonight -- and the next six Monday and Thursday evenings through March 15 -- as a huge truck moves seven industrial kilns from the Canton docks to a cement company in Carroll County. Restrictions imposed by the city Department of Public Works will begin at 9 p.m. and last until 3 a.m. as the first of the 130-ton kilns leaves a pier on South Clinton Street for a six-hour trip to the Lehigh Portland Cement Company on Reisterstown Road.

Baltimore police have arrested six juveniles they believe beat a man early Sunday in Little Italy, causing serious facial injuries. Police are not releasing the identities of the suspects because of their age. Baltimore police spokesman Sgt. Eric Kowalczyk said additional suspects are being sought. About 1:10 a.m. Sunday, police responded to the 300 block of S. Exeter Street, where they found the 24-year-old victim, who was bleeding and complaining of a broken jaw and missing teeth.

In response to a neighborhood outcry, Baltimore's Department of Transportation and City Councilman Jim Kraft announced a series of changes to pedestrian signals and crosswalks intended to make walking safer in Fells Point. Transportation Director Khalil Zaied said the city would soon adjust the signals at seven Fells Point intersections to flash an automatic "walk" sign at set intervals between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. At other times, pedestrians would push a button for a walk signal. The intersections include east-west Eastern Avenue and Fleet Street where they cross north-south Wolfe, Ann and Washington streets, as well as the intersection of Gough and Wolfe streets.

The problem: A paving stone barely covered an open water meter vault in Upper Fells Point. The back story: Finding a parking spot near Patterson Park can be a challenge. But one location on Bank Street presented a hidden danger for Janice Evans of Nottingham. About two months ago, she parked in the 2200 block of Bank St., just east of North Patterson Park Avenue, to visit a friend. Evans had to get out of her vehicle somewhat awkwardly because the tree well had been walled in with bricks.

RAMALLAH, West Bank -- A fleet of trucks and bulldozers had lumbered into place yesterday afternoon, and aimed for a small grove of cypress trees, shoving aside the rusted remains of junked cars along the way. By dusk, most of the debris was cleared. The cypress trees still stood, on the edge of a concrete parking lot, in the shadow of the presidential compound. Sullen-faced members of the presidential guard sat slumped on a wall and watched. The workers were clearing space, in the sparse shade of the cypress trees -- for Yasser Arafat's grave.
