The live-in boyfriend of a Bolton Hill woman whose 7-year-old son found her dead in February after he and his cousin returned home from school has been charged with her killing. Gregory Barber, 23, was picked up last week on a warrant charging him with first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Kermia Hair, who was found stabbed and beaten Feb. 7 in her apartment in the 1800 block of Bolton St. A woman who identified herself as Hair's sister told The Sun in February that her nephew and his cousin found Hair, whose first name is spelled "Kamea" in some records and who was known as "Mia," unconscious in a first-floor room.

A FEW weeks ago, burglars broke into my friend Leigh Anne' Bolton Hill apartment while she was at work. The thieves made off with most of her appliances, stereo equipment and computer hardware, and after discovering the theft and alerting the police -- who made a list of the stolen items and promptly told her to kiss them goodbye -- Leigh Anne called me."The CD-player-boombox-microwave-TV-VCR all gone," she practically screamed into my ear."Where?" I asked feebly."I don't know!" she hollered.

Should a building designed in 1986 receive a building permit in 1992? Or have tastes and philosophies about architecture changed so much in six years that the plans need to be updated?Those questions have stymied a Masonic organization seeking city permission to build a new temple on one of the last large development parcels in the Bolton Hill historic district.Members of the Most Worshipful Hiram Grand Lodge AF&AM Inc., an organization with 1,500 members, received approval in 1986 to construct a $3.2 million headquarters in the 1200 block of Eutaw Place.

Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke agreed last night to reconsider his redistricting plan after meeting with hundreds of angry Bolton Hill residents who explained their opposition to the plan in what he called "human terms."The residents, gathered at Mount Royal Elementary School, told the mayor that his plan to move Bolton Hill from the 2nd District to the 4th District would sever the community's long-standing ties with other neighborhoods, such as Charles Village and Mount Vernon-Belvedere.Those communities, residents said, share similar interests, such as historical preservation, and therefore their City Council representatives who can focus on those interests.

The first worrisome signs appeared about a year ago in Paul R. Hager's neighborhood. Mr. Hager, a financial consultant, was troubled by evidence of neglect amid the stately, late 19th-century brownstones of Bolton Hill.Along blocks of spacious rowhouses known for ornamental cornices and 12-foot ceilings, pine floors and crystal chandeliers were several homes in need of paint or structural repairs. A few sat abandoned by landlord owners, and vandals and vagrants were quickly taking over.Many of Mr. Hager's neighbors were as alarmed as he. They, too, lived in the downtown neighborhood because they thrived on an urban lifestyle that put light rail, theaters and grassy parks at their doorstep.
