"Christmas on Division Street" has multiple opportunities to turn into a treacly, sugar-plum fable for the season, but it avoids almost every one of them to remain a surprisingly substantive movie from start to finish.Not a perfect movie, however. Clearly, this is a statement by Barry Morrow, Oscar winner for the screenplay of "Rain Man," who wrote and co-executive produced this CBS film that will be on Channel 11 (WBAL) Sunday night at 9 o'clock.So, at times it becomes something of a polemic on the plight of the homeless in our society, a bit didactic on the way we might like to begin charity at home, but then make sure its recipients are kept as far away as possible.

Ocean City is ready for the spotlight this weekend as the town launches into the summer season with a new laser light show. The O.C. Beach Lights Spectacular features lasers, videos, special effects and lights displayed on a 50-foot-tall sphere that looks like a beach ball. The show will take place Sundays on the beach at North Division Street three times a night - 9:30 p.m., 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. - from Memorial Day to Labor Day. "We're excited about it," says Donna Abbott, public relations manager for the Town of Ocean City.

Former Ocean City Mayor Roland E. "Fish" Powell has a plan for a perfect morning. He drives in from his home, parks at Division Street, watches the boats come in and then takes a two-mile walk on the boardwalk. He's now 78 and doesn't worry about government after serving as the resort town's mayor from 1985 to 1996. "I still go fishing quite a bit," he said the other day. "My daughter has a couple of marinas, and we've got all the boats we need." His walks, which he takes for his health but also to see what's happening, allow him to make a few observations.

A little more will, no doubt, be beneficial to both animal and vegetable life.July 26: Horse and Man Traps -- We observe many bad places in West Baltimore Street where the attention of the city is required. There is a hole in the middle of the street, at the corner of Howard, that has lamed a dozen horses.100 years ago in The SunJuly 22: Colored citizens of Northwest Baltimore held a meeting in Ames' African Methodist Episcopal Church, Division Street, and discussed the need of more public schools for colored pupils.

Sylvia Fulwood marches west on East 20th Street, past the men congregating on the front steps of the boarded-up rowhouses, past the bare-chested teen-ager singing out "Five-O" as a police patrol wagon speeds north on Greenmount.Heading toward two vacant houses on 21st Street, she carries a Top 10 list: top 10 nuisances in the East Baltimore-Midway and Barclay neighborhoods.The list identifies abandoned houses where the junkies squat and rental properties where the tenants deal drugs. Under the newly established Community Anti-Drug Assistance Project, Ms. Fulwood plans to lead area residents into court to do something about "nuisance" properties that provide the setting for drug activity and its associated danger and violence.

The glowing Buddhist shrine with its scroll of Chinese calligraphy illuminates the room where Tamm E. Hunt talks of jazz. "I'm a Buddhist and a Mahayana Buddhist," she says. That's the Buddhism of the Greater Wheel, one of the mainstreams of Buddhist thought. She chants daily before the shrine. "We're about self-improvement and self development," she says. "There are millions of us." Singer Tina Turner and jazz musicians Herbie Hancock, the pianist, and Wayne Shorter, the tenor saxophone player, all practice Buddhism.

OCEAN CITY -- You've walked on it. You've gobbled a handful of vinegar-soaked Thrasher's french fries on it. You've held hands and hummed the first line of the old Drifters' hit on it.Oh when the sun comes up and burns the tar up on the roof. . . .L But how well do you really know the boardwalk at Ocean City?Do you know what kind of wood you're walking on? Do you know how many trash cans there are -- and how often they are emptied? Have you seen this year's T-shirt styles? Do you remember the second line of the old Drifters' hit?
