Three historic but blighted rowhouses are headed to the auction block tomorrow, an event that could end a long-running battle over the properties that pitted a church-related corporation against the city and an East Baltimore community group. The houses are owned by Apostolic Community Development Corp., an arm of a prominent east-side church. Since 1999, the city has been battling to force the corporation to renovate the houses or get rid of them. Two months ago, a Baltimore Circuit Court judge found the development corporation and Franklin C. Showell, who leads First Apostolic Institutional Faith Church, guilty of civil contempt for not abiding by a February 2003 consent decree that required the properties to be fixed up or sold.

Bernard Manekin, whose commercial real estate firm that he owned and operated with his brother for more than 50 years succeeded in transforming Baltimore's skyline and self-image, died Saturday in his sleep at his home in the St. James condominiums on North Charles Street. The longtime Northwest Baltimore resident was 95. "He was one of the original visionaries who made our Charles Center and ultimately the Inner Harbor a success. If he hadn't been able to lease One Charles Center in a poor economic climate, the whole project might have died right there," said Martin L. Millspaugh Jr., who was the first chief executive of Charles Center-Inner Harbor Management Inc., which oversaw the development in the 1960s of the harbor and what became Charles Center.

SOME FIRST-TIME homebuyers wind up with unexpected problems with faulty boilers, leaky roofs or noisy neighbors. Holly Edelstein is facing a far different - and more serious - difficulty. Seven months after buying a rowhouse just east of Patterson Park, she is being threatened with the loss of her property. The 31-year-old is a defendant in a lawsuit over the failure of the previous owner of her property, the Patterson Park Community Development Corp., to pay the ground rent - that peculiar institution that is essentially a long-term lease for a fairly nominal sum on a residential property, primarily in the city and in Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties.

Have enriched classes available to all pupils An article in the January 23rd edition of The Sun (Anne Arundel section) entitled "IB is in Demand" points out the near-insanity of Dr. Eric Smith's ill-conceived movement to standardize curricula throughout this very diverse county. By forcing hundreds of students to waste time during the school day in an extra hour of reading (which they can do at home), Smith has brought every child's school day experience down to the lowest common denominator.
