Third of four parts --Iven Bailey was on the move again. He carried two black trash bags, one for shoes, the other for everything else. He trudged down Harford Road past the wreckage of one abandoned building after another until he found what he was looking for, a dreary little rowhouse with a front door the color of dry dirt. This would be his home for now. Or, rather, his dwelling. It was early April of this year, and for the past three months, Iven, 18, had boarded with a neighborhood woman, Betty Jones, in a house two blocks to the north.

In exchange for her conviction on a misdemeanor count of conspiracy to sell heroin, the 31-year-old Pearson received her freedom. And she swears that when her face appears in public in the future, it will be because of her acting accomplishments, not her legal troubles.

Andrew Wells is hoping to buy a Baltimore home for around the cost of an old car: Less than $10,000. Turns out he's in good company. One of every 10 city homes sold during the first half of the year - about 275 in all - fell in that price range. Twice as many sold for under $20,000. Often foreclosures, these properties are usually in bad shape but seem like deals to real estate investors and the occasional hopeful owner-occupier - such as Wells. "I don't have to worry about trying to get a loan," said Wells, 40, a bill-processing technician who works in Annapolis.

A Baltimore jury has awarded nearly $2.1 million to a 17-year-old city youth who was allegedly poisoned by lead paint in the 1990s when he was a toddler in an East Baltimore rental home. The judgment against Elliot Dackman and the estates of Sandra and Bernard Dackman came Friday in Baltimore Circuit Court, at the end of the weeklong trial of a lawsuit brought on behalf of Daquantay Robinson by his mother, Tiesha Robinson. The jury verdict shows the long-running tide of litigation over the widespread use of lead-based paint in Baltimore's older rental housing has yet to ebb, according to Bruce Powell, the Robinsons' lawyer.

A vigil is being planned for this afternoon to remember 13-year-old Monae Turnage, who police say was accidentally shot and killed by one of her classmates while playing a with a rifle inside a rowhouse on Saturday night. Tentative plans include a gathering about 4 or 4:30 p.m. outside Monae's school, William C. March Middle, at 2050 North Wolfe St. The mourners will then march to the girl's house a few blocks away in the 1700 block of Sinclair Lane. That route roughly follows the path that Monae took when she left her house Saturday night to walk to an adjoining neighborhood, Darley Park, to meet a friend to go roller skating.
