Charlotte Young Ross, who operated a day care center in her West Baltimore home for 15 years, had a simple philosophy for raising her own children and those entrusted to her care.That philosophy was to treat every child "the same loving way," said her daughter Martha Ross Crawley of Baltimore."She treated them all like they were her own, which meant she could be strict when they got out of line," Mrs. Crawley said. "But the kids were just a part of her, each and every one of them."Mrs. Ross died Thursday of gall bladder and renal infections at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Catholic Charities wants to care for about 50 children from Central America at a campus in Baltimore County, seeking a role in the immigration crisis even though the consideration of other sites in Maryland has met with fierce local opposition. The organization plans to apply to federal officials to house the children at St. Vincent's Villa, a residential facility on Dulaney Valley Road, Catholic Charities head William J. McCarthy Jr. confirmed Thursday night. McCarthy said housing the children would amount to his organization doing its job. "Our role and our mission is to meet the needs of these children," he said.

Maryland has confirmed its first cases of seasonal influenza, state health officials announced Friday, several months earlier than last season. Four children in the Baltimore region have laboratory-confirmed cases. One was hospitalized, but all are doing well, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said. Three were type A (H3N2) influenza, while one had type B influenza. The first seasonal case of last season was confirmed in December 2011. "Flu is here earlier this year than last year, and we are seeing two different flu strains," said Frances Phillips, DHMH deputy secretary of Public Health Services.

A four-year study of children in Baltimore and two other cities found that removing lead-contaminated soil from around homes did not reduce the risk of lead poisoning as much as had been expected, federal officials said yesterday.The preliminary findings of the $17 million study raise new questions about the best way to attack a major public health problem. But the research seems to confirm the need to clean up lead-based paint inside older homes just as some landlords and real estate interests are trying to blame widespread poisoning mainly on lead in soil.

A city woman was ordered yesterday to pay restitution for more than $11,000 in welfare payments she admitted to collecting fraudulently from Baltimore County's Department of Social Services.Adriana Elizabeth Scott, 25, had claimed that she lived in the county, had custody of her three children, and needed food stamps and financial assistance through the Aid for Families with Dependant Children program because the whereabouts of the children's father was unknown.But while receiving the welfare payments in 1993 and 1994, Scott lived for part of the time with the children's father in the 4300 block of York Road in Baltimore, and her mother cared for the children in Baltimore County for at least three months, according to testimony in Essex District Court.

The field was dotted with newly planted maples, oaks and green ashes, the spindly saplings protected from intrusive deer by encircling plastic shafts and held in place by wooden stakes. The almost 200 trees, set into the ground in April by a group of schoolchildren, were intended to stem the runoff of phosphorus and other pollutants into Loch Raven Reservoir, which borders the field in Baltimore County. But Joe Bivona, owner of a restaurant nearby, decided that the trees would obstruct his view of the water.

Blame boredom for teen trouble The Sun's article about Joy Sushinsky fighting to clean up her Hampden neighborhood was interesting, and her efforts are commendable ("Doing battle for Hampden home," June 12). But the article left out one key element. Ms. Sushinsky has a laundry list of things she would like to do to in her neighborhood, but she offers no solutions to help the youths who are causing the problems. As a former delinquent teenager myself, I attribute such behaviors to boredom and a lack of activities for teenagers.

Four-year-old Damaud Martin rests in a coma-like state in a Baltimore hospital, his once-bright smile gone. Relatives who visit him at the Kennedy Krieger Institute say doctors have told them it's likely he will never run, jump or play again. He was a victim of shaken baby syndrome, the Baltimore City Department of Social Services said in a court filing. Police are still investigating what happened to Damaud, who has been hospitalized since Jan. 19, but one thing is clear. The injury occurred two months after the social services agency, with court approval, sent him home.

Travis Robinson, 10 years old and perched in the front seat of a police car, had a few questions for his partner for the day, Baltimore police Officer Ron Starr. What are the switches for? Do you work a night or day shift? Do you like doughnuts? Why are we stopping? ... We're police! Then they were off, lights flashing, to the modern-day North Pole, also known as Wal-Mart. Travis' big dreams - world peace and a PlayStation Portable - weren't in the cards, but Starr was hoping to make a few of his young charge's less formidable Christmas wishes come true.

It's wrong to export state's troubled youths I join the voices protesting the pre-emptive closing of the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School before a secure, humane alternative is established, or even planned, in Maryland ("Moving of juvenile offenders criticized," Oct. 1). I represent youths charged with crimes in Baltimore. They are alienated from their families, schools and communities. They exist in the narrow invisible world of vacant houses and drug corners. Most have never even been to the Inner Harbor, and will not see the city-financed Hilton Hotel.

LA CAPILLA, Mexico -- The last time Adan Espinoza Canela called this dusty town was on Mother's Day, when the 17-year-old told his mother he remembered the holiday because of a television commercial and assured her that life was good for him in Baltimore. "If he was a bad person, he would not remember Mother's Day," said his mother, Teresa Canela Chacha, as she tearfully recalled last month's telephone call. Chacha, who raised Canela and his four siblings by herself in this poor village in the state of Veracruz, said she can't imagine that her son committed the gruesome crime he is accused of -- killing his three young cousins with a knife last month in Northwest Baltimore.
