But for the dream of one young man, the dedication of a new computer room in the Greenmount Recreation Center yesterday at a ribbon-cutting ceremony never would have happened.A small, yellow room with more than a dozen state-of-the-art computers -- all donated by the Microsoft Foundation, with Pentium II processors, 64 megabytes of random access memory and 17-inch color monitors -- began as an idea from Vivek Baluja, a Johns Hopkins University premed student who had tutored at the city recreation center at 2304 Greenmount Ave.Determined to connect computers to the lives of inner-city youths, Baluja harnessed the energy of friends, professors and community leaders in a frenetic fund-raising campaign last year that netted more than $150,000 in equipment and funds from private sources.

The Dream Homes feature will periodically visit the homes of some of the Baltimore area's notable citizens. "It's like living in a treehouse," said Rudy Miller, WMAR-TV's morning news anchor, describing her Hill Farm home in Lutherville.The spacious contemporary house backs to a small forest dense enough that it's hard to see other houses even with most of the leaves gone.The house is situated on 3 acres on a sloping lot, with a large deck that extends off the kitchen and family room that sits one floor off the ground, with mature trees all around.

The dozens of children who spend their after-school hours at the Stanton Community Center in downtown Annapolis can find help with homework, or a game of basketball. They get a bag lunch and assistance from a friendly group of volunteers. But the most dominant presence in this historic city building is the man they call Mr. Lassie. Everybody refers to recreation leader George Belt as Lassie, a childhood nickname that has stuck for all his 60 years. (When he was born the third child in three years, his grandparents told his mother he should be called "Lastie," though she went on to have seven more children.

The empty desks in the computer room, left with nothing more than dust and a few old cables, tell the story of the burglary as vividly as any anecdote. Thieves who broke into a private Christian school in Northeast Baltimore over the weekend seemed to know exactly where the most valuable items were, school officials said Wednesday, prompting the theory that the perpetrators are former students. The burglars made off with 17 new desktop computers that had been set up just two weeks ago, as well as sound and music equipment from behind a stage.

Florence Bain still gazes across the expansive lobby from her portrait's vantage point in the Columbia senior center that bears her name. But the panorama she oversees abruptly changed two weeks ago. Gone is the faithful core of seniors who socialize daily by the cozy brick fireplace, where the prominent resident's black-and-white photograph hangs just above the mantel. The upholstered sofas and chairs the group occupies most days are now lined up like sales inventory in multipurpose room 2. In their place are stacks of chairs from the computer room, where a burst sprinkler pipe brought the center's normal hustle and bustle to a halt on Jan. 18. "I like to call that group 'the lobbyists,'" said John Forrest, 77, a frequent visitor to the Harper's Choice facility that celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.

When I first saw this little electronic marvel, I immediately thought it would be something James Bond might use. Picture this. Bond's assignment is to find out which Web sites the bad guy is logging onto, what passwords are being used along with whatever else that might be typed on the computer's keyboard. Bond sneaks into the computer room, but it's dark and there's no power. Besides, turning on the computer would make way too much noise and there's no time to install some kind of spyware anyway.
