The vehicle of a Cherry Hill activist and pastor was defaced with a threatening message on Thursday, and city police say they are investigating. It's the second time Cleoda Walker says she has been threatened since she started looking into complaints from residents about what they say are over-aggressive security officers in the Cherry Hill neighborhood. And the most recent incident comes as papers were served on officers being sued in a class-action filing by Walker and 20 other residents, according to attorney Tonya Bana, of the Murphy Firm.

More information has been released about the severely injured puppy found in a Baltimore alley Wednesday: It now appears she had been set on fire. Officials at the Noah's Arks Rescue in South Carolina, where the 6-month-old pup was transported, say Petunia (formerly called Deacon) has an extreme case of demodex, or mites. And she has wounds consistent with being severely burned. She is in critical care and will remain in that condition for some time, but is being heavily medicated so her wounds don't hurt.  She was originally taken to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)

Over the course of three days in Cherry Hill in January 2011, a former standout high school basketball player was fatally shot and a youth football coach was murdered in front of his family. Those shootings and at least three others in the South Baltimore neighborhood were not disparate incidents, authorities alleged Tuesday, but part of a gang war. Prosecutors along with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Baltimore police said 26 people have been indicted on racketeering charges after an investigation into the feuding between Cherry Hill gangs called "Up Da Hill" and groups known as "Little Spelman" and "Coppin Court.

One only has to take a look at the story about the death of 14-year-old Najee Thomas in Cherry Hill and have lived in the inner city to understand the circumstances ( "In Cherry Hill, shooting takes a good friend's life," April 23). Reporter Justin George could have delved further into the history of Cherry Hill which, by the way, is nothing like its name. Predominantly African-American, the community has a long history of drugs, violence and an unstable home environment. What can we expect from generations after generation of people raised by single parents (if lucky)

I have no intention of downplaying the importance of law enforcement in the community, especially when it comes to programs that are more rehabilitative than they are combative, but I feel that articles such as your recent report on the Cherry Hill neighborhood cast a more negative light on certain communities than necessary and that they are quite frankly counter-intuitive to the notion of social justice ("On the beat in Cherry Hill," July 15)....

A Cherry Hill crack dealer admitted in federal court Wednesday to killing two rivals as part of a long-running feud between two neighborhood drug crews. Davon Martin, 25, was a member of a group known as Little Spelman, which was locked in a bitter war between 2011 and 2012 with another group, called Up Da Hill. His guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy highlights the interwoven nature of violence in some city neighborhoods. "Many of the shootings and murders in Baltimore City result from disputes between rival drug gangs," said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.

A New York Times interactive map posted yesterday could settle the debate about which Baltimore-area communities show the most support for the hometown O's. The outstanding infographic uses a team's Facebook "Likes" in a given area to determine fandom within every ZIP code in the country, and in Maryland, it shows about what you'd expect. The Orioles are the dominant team, in terms of percentage of fans, in the Baltimore metro region, with the Nationals gaining a stronghold in D.C. suburbs and the Phillies only creeping across the border in the eastern Maryland towns that border Delaware.

From Cherry Hill to a West Side high school a few miles away, scores of families and friends turned out Wednesday night to mourn teenagers killed in recent days, and to decry persistent violence in the city. On the block where 14-year-old Najee Thomas was killed, residents attended an anti-violence rally. Standing on the curb was the boy who lost his best friend, now too scared to go to the school bus stop alone. In the back of the crowd was the attorney who came because she was touched that Najee had aspired to be a lawyer like herself.

In response to former Mayor Sheila Dixon's letter ( "Sheila Dixon: Baltimore isn't perfect but it's getting better," March 11), I beg to differ that we are better off today than in 2000. In 2000, Baltimore's gangs weren't as organized as we see them today. The anti-establishment they preach is a cancer to all the good works that are put into effect to help our people. Their mentally truly undermines unity of all people. I live in East Baltimore and grew up in Cherry Hill. What I see now is far more dangerous then what I came from.

As Alice Ross rumbled across Hanover Street's Vietnam Veterans Memorial Bridge early on the morning of Baltimore's most recent snowstorm, her Subaru smashed into a large pothole obscured by the accumulating snow. The 61-year-old Halethorpe resident, on her way to drive a friend to a medical appointment, instead continued directly to her car dealership in Glen Burnie, she said - where she was met with a $1,100 mechanic's bill. "I was petrified," Ross said of the incident, which nearly sent her off the bridge.
