"It hurts me so bad, these young men killing each other," Gail Gainer, concerned and vigilant citizen of northwest Baltimore, said in this space a couple of weeks ago, after her son narrowly escaped a late-night street shooting. "What in the world is wrong with these guys? Why do they want to keep killing each other?" Those were expressions of frustration, to be sure, because Ms. Gainer knows the answers to Baltimore's toughest and most enduring questions. She knows why it keeps happening because she's lived within earshot of the violence for years, and she's seen many young men come and go, caught in the cycle of drugs and trouble.

Bush visited her former school and heralded it as a success, and the newly hired principal at the Monarch Academy Public Charter School, squeals with delight. "Oh my God, it was like an out-of-body experience," Larkin said, recalling her return for a day to North Glen Elementary in Glen Burnie.

Seems the Orioles donated 500 tickets to the Children's Guild to be used as a fund-raiser for this therapeutic day school for emotionally disturbed children.If you'd like to "Take the O Train," tickets are $50, a bargain considering that you begin your evening at 5 p.m. with pre-game baseball dinner and drinks at the Mount Washington Tavern.

The school board must vote again to approve the charter.

How do you cap off an afternoon of strolling the sunny streets of Baltimore's Little Italy, taking in the view of some 80 exotic Italian cars? With a fabulous Italian meal, of course. Several hundred guests at Concorso Italia trooped into the hall at St. Leo's Church. They compared notes on their favorites in the car show outside, sipped a little wine and bid on a few items in the auction. Then, it was time to get down to business -- tucking into a supper featuring eight different dishes from eight different Little Italy restaurants.

Despite the cold winds outside - or, perhaps because of them - the atmosphere inside Valley Mansion was downright giddy at The Children's Guild "7th Annual Cabaret for Kids." It seemed that the hundreds of folks in formal frocks and tuxes couldn't wait to shed their heavy coats. "The place looks great; a lot of beautiful people," said Towson area attorney John Bartkowiak. "It's good to get out and have fun when you're seeing and reading gloom and doom everywhere you go. Getting dressed up and getting out and having fun is just what's needed," said Joan Worthington, principal of JW and Associates.

Christmas will come early to the Children's Guild program of Howard County. The local extension of the Baltimore-based, non-profit private school for emotionally disturbed 7-to-12-year-olds apparently won't have to endure the imminent closing its operators and client families had feared.Established last year at Taylor Manor Hospital in Ellicott City, the local program was nearly to the point of shutting down a few weeks ago for failing to meet expenses. It requires 15 students to break even at Taylor Manor, but recently only 13 were enrolled.
