The Oakland Mills Partnership Group, under the auspices of the Enterprise Foundation, will hire a community development officer to help launch the Oakland Mills Revitalization Plan. The draft of the revitalization plan is the outcome of an Oakland Mills town hall meeting held Feb. 7, when 160 residents met to discuss their vision for the community's future and identified actions needed to accomplish it. With facilitation by AmericaSpeaks, the residents selected four issues - community growth, education, housing and safety - that they deemed essential to creating an attractive and healthy community, with thriving businesses, well-maintained open space, support for youths and community participation.

When they show up for an interview in Smith's office, they take one look at each other and laugh as they realize they are both wearing bolo ties.

Vogel, a former Marylander, won the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for her play "How I Learned to Drive," the current production at Arena's Kreeger Theater, under Smith's direction.

On the carpet of a Woodlawn mosque, rows of schoolboys kneel in front of long wooden bookstands holding volumes of the Quran, their voices rising in a melodious chorus of Arabic. As the Muslim world fasts and prays during this month of Ramadan, these boys are continuing a centuries-old tradition of committing the holy scriptures of Islam to their hearts and minds. With its lyrical Arabic, the Quran, which tradition says was spoken to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel, is a book that is meant to be recited.

There we were, in the small backyard of 1928 Sherwood Ave. on Baltimore's east side, shoveling a path through dirt and rubble and searching for bricks -- of which there were many. Because the back wall of 1928 caved in several months ago, ample work faced this stalwart group.This gang comprised a psychologist, a professional storyteller, a minister, a suburban homemaker, a semi-retired carpenter, a high-school student, an upholsterer, a journalist and a chemistry teacher."Jimmy Carter was in Baltimore yesterday to support this project," said Barbara Frazier, the psychologist from Timonium.

City leaders are busy courting Congress for funds for a monorail that would run from Camden Station to Canton, even though some residents of Baltimore's historic waterfront neighborhoods are upset about the proposal.Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke has asked Congress to spend $1.5 million on a study of his proposed "people mover" -- computerized electrical cars that would run on both sides of a rail elevated about 15 feet and supported by single poles.Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, a Baltimore Democrat, is spearheading the effort to get congressional approval for the estimated $200 million to build the people mover -- a cost roughly equal to that of the new Ravens stadium.
