Union officials warned Thursday that as many as 200 maintenance workers and building monitors at Baltimore's public housing properties could lose their jobs under a plan intended to infuse the buildings with private money. Employees such as maintenance mechanic Lucky Crosby Sr., who has worked for the Housing Authority of Baltimore City for a decade, say they took the jobs with the understanding that the pay was relatively low, but the work was secure. "By working for the Housing Authority, we joined the credit union so we could buy homes that we have to finance," said Crosby, 46, of Sandtown-Winchester.

Baltimore's Housing Authority is selling nearly 40 percent of its public housing to private developers under a national model designed to raise millions for upgrades and maintenance, Commissioner Paul T. Graziano said Wednesday. Beginning next year, 22 complexes will undergo $300 million in long-overdue upgrades, such as roof replacements, new elevators and heating systems, and remodeled kitchens and bathrooms, Graziano said. The proposal expects to use multiple funding sources, including tax credits which are made available by the state of Maryland through the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Prior to Saturday's Patriot League showdown with Holy Cross, sophomore attackman T.J. Hanzsche had scored at least one goal in Navy's first three games. So while his six-goal outburst in a 21-12 pasting of the Crusaders may have been stunning to some, it wasn't a surprise to coach Rick Sowell. “He's a sophomore, and he's maturing,” Sowell said Tuesday afternoon. “He broke out in the Lafayette game a year ago [with three goals and one assist in first career start]. He's a good player.

For a Washington College team that returned six starters and ranked No. 8 in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, Saturday's 15-8 victory over No. 15 Washington and Lee might not be terribly significant for a program that has qualified for the last two NCAA tournaments. But for a Shoremen squad that boasts four new starters and plays several more newcomers, the win could resonate for a long time, coach Jeff Shirk acknowledged. “I think it's a big deal,” he said Monday morning.

Developers of the Foundry Row retail project in Owings Mills say they are on track to start construction this summer on a $140 million shopping center featuring Baltimore County's second Wegmans grocery store. In an opinion issued this week, the county Board of Appeals upheld an administrative law judge's earlier decision to approve the development at the site of the former Solo Cup plant on Reisterstown Road. And Thursday, officials at Greenberg Gibbons, the center developer, said their company has settled a lawsuit that Solo Cup filed against it involving damage to energy plant equipment on the 50-acre property.

Loyola surrendered 14 and 11 goals in the first two games, resulting in one overtime loss to No. 8 Virginia and one overtime win against No. 11 Penn State. Since then, the defense has given up just four goals each to No. 19 Towson and Holy Cross. The unit's recent play is a promising sign for a defense that had to replace three starters in defenseman Reid Acton (22 ground balls and 18 caused turnovers), long-stick midfielder Scott Ratliff (77 GB, 29 CT) and short-stick defensive midfielder Josh Hawkins (25 GB, 13 CT)

A number of factors - being on the wrong end of the ground ball and shot battles and having problems with the man-up offense and man-down defense - played a collaborative role in Goucher's 16-7 loss to Washington College on Saturday. But if there is one lesson Gophers coach Brian Kelly can glean from the season opener, it's that the problems can be addressed and fixed. “They're definitely correctable mistakes,” he said Tuesday morning. “For 30 minutes, what Goucher lacrosse was all about was effective.

The Crofton birthplace of Johns Hopkins, which once anchored hundreds of acres of farmland in Anne Arundel County, soon may see its territory shrink once more. A developer has proposed building an assisted-living center on the 10.5-acre lot next door to Whites Hall, a brick home where the founder of the Baltimore university and hospital was born in 1795. The plans sparked traffic fears among residents, as well as concerns about development on one of the last lots next to the house, which was built in the 1700s and anchors the remaining 13 acres of what was originally an 1,800-acre land grant given in 1665 to Colonial official Jerome White.
