Dennis S. Hill, a former Baltimore City Police Department spokesman known for his mellow voice, authoritative presence and accessibility to the media, died Saturday of heart disease at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Forest Hill resident was 71. In his 22 years in the Police Department press room, Mr. Hill was his agency's day-to-day public face on television and voice on radio. He was quoted almost daily in three newspapers. He handled the press when James A. "Turk" Scott, a Maryland House of Delegates member, was murdered.

Before I retired as a sergeant from the Baltimore Police Department in 1996 after 23 years of service, I had worked in a variety of staff positions. Given my background, I probably know more than the average Baltimorean about how difficult a job being the police commissioner can be without a competent staff to offload the pressure to comment on every criminal incident occurring in the city. Recent quotes by city Commissioner Anthony Batts tell me he needs a surrogate like the late Dennis Hill - a former journalist who served for 22 years as the director of public information for the police department - to help him vent his spleen about how he feels about violent crime in the city in a much more constructive, less defensive manner, and perhaps tutor him about how to talk extemporaneously.

For 21 years Dennis Hill has been the voice on radio, the face on TV and the "police spokesman" in newspapers that have brought the city some of its worst and most depressing news.Now he has become the bearer of more news: His own dismissal as director of public information for the Baltimore Police Department.Since The Sun reported the story Saturday, Mr. Hill has received numerous calls of support, including one from an aide to Gov. William Donald Schaefer offering the governor's moral support, Mr. Hill said.

Hot, humid and hazy -- that's all there is on the weather menu PTC today, the sixth consecutive day of 90 degrees or more.The only brief respite from the wilting heat is a thunderstorm that was given a 30 percent chance of occurring late this afternoon or evening. Otherwise, temperatures were expected to reach at least 92 degrees in the metropolitan region. It was already 85 by mid-morning at the airport.And tomorrow, Saturday, Sunday and Monday all appear to be shaping up the same way. As Harry Truman once said, if you can't stand the heat, go hang out at an air-conditioned mall.
