Diane Pittman sat yesterday at the dining room table where just 13 hours earlier her 4-year-old grandson was shot in the head -- hit by a bullet fired from outside her row house in East Baltimore. She slowly shook her head."Doesn't seem like you're safe inside or outside. It doesn't matter," she said softly. "You can put them up on the roof; maybe they'd be safe there."Her grandson, Quantae Maurice Johnson, was listed in critical but stable condition at the pediatric intensive care unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

JUST BETWEEN Fells Point and Canton, tiny Castle Street stands as a well-worn monument to change.If you can find it, that is.The street sign at Fleet Street has been mangled by huge 18-wheelers, snagged trying to make the narrow turn to deliver cartons of fresh flowers to Chesapeake Wholesale Florists.The big picture looks like this: modern mode of transportation clashes with old-fashioned alley streets.It's a problem that has vexed the neighborhood for years, as the big hawgs enter and exit nearby Boston Street.

Fans of high-rise implosion need city-issued passes to the prime locations for viewing tomorrow's demolition of Lexington Terrace. (Just like anything else: It's who ya know.) But, if you don't have an official invitation to the grassy knoll at Franklin and Schroeder or the University of Maryland parking garage at Pine Street, allow me to recommend the corner of Poppleton and Baltimore streets in West Baltimore. The view is pretty good from there, and you're likely to find a hand-painted ice cream truck (its music box plays "Home, Home on the Range" repeatedly)

A Baltimore man pleaded guilty in federal court Friday to conspiracy to commit wire fraud because he and others secured mortgages for six homes in Upper Fells Point with fraudulent information, prosecutors announced. Kenneth Koehler, 42, and his co-conspirators caused losses of more than $1 million to mortgage lenders because all six homes they purchased subsequently went into foreclosure, according to a statement from the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office. Four of the homes were on South Chapel Street, one home was in the 200 block of South Castle Street and another was in the 2200 block of Gough Street, according to Koehler's plea agreement.
