A pair of tall granite minarets appeared on the northwest Baltimore skyline exactly 100 years ago. These towers are part of the monumental Berea Temple, a house of prayer built of granite from Port Deposit and Woodstock, Patapsco River clay and Ohio sandstone. It is filled with stained-glass windows in the shape of the Star of David, mosaic floors, carved oak pews and a white marble pulpit.Is it old Byzantium -- or Toledo, Spain -- at Madison Avenue and Robert Street? Whatever, after a century of hard service, the temple can easily use $2 million worth of restoration.

The meeting of East Baltimore's Berea community association is packed - standing room only - and leader Julius Henson is in control. There's a tavern to oppose. A computer lab to improve. Trash to clean up. Finally, Henson turns to the queue of political candidates from across the city who've been waiting for a chance to speak. He flashes a smile, but his tone is firm. "One minute," Henson tells them. "Quickly. " Watching Henson lead one of Baltimore's most powerful community associations, an observer might forget this is the same man who was convicted last year in a high-profile election-fraud case.

A person can see much of Baltimore from atop one of the Berea Temple's 105-foot minarets. He also can get a close-up of the cracking, slipping Roman terra cotta tiles on the other minaret and the great dome behind them.The tiles were intended to last 100 years, and the 100 years are up. The tiles must be replaced on the building at Madison Avenue and Robert Street built in 1891 by the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.The Seventh-day Adventist church that bought the building from Baltimore Hebrew Congregation in 1951 is in the midst of a $2.6 million project to restore and renovate it. The problem with the tiles on the minarets and domes has caused a cost overrun.

Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon bounded up the stairs to a home on Federal Street in East Baltimore ready to make her pitch. "You have kids?" the mayor asked a man sitting on his porch Wednesday morning. He looked stunned. "Grandkids?" Dixon asked. He nodded, and the mayor, surrounded by aides, began selling a city-sponsored summer camp. It is free, it is just down the block, Dixon said. She passed out a white plastic bag bearing a city seal that contained a schedule of camp activities at Fort Worthington Recreation Center (formerly the Fort Worthington Police Athletic League)
