In order to help the estimate 300 people still without water in the East North Avenue corridor, the Baltimore City Department of Public Works has opened four stations to provide free bottled water for residents to help stay hydrated. According to a press release, Public Works Director Alfred H. Foxx said the four stations - located at the Oliver Recreation Center, Lanvale Towers, the intersection of Belair Road and North Avenue, and 1401 E. Oliver St. - are open to all of those affected, but residents must bring either a valid Baltimore I.D. or a bill to prove they live between Belair Road and Aisquith Street.

A broken 10-inch-wide water main in Southwest Baltimore caused a sinkhole to open on Frederick Avenue near its intersection with East Lynne Avenue late Tuesday night, according to city officials. The water main was shut off and Frederick Avenue was closed at the intersection, in the city's Mill Hill neighborhood, said Kurt Kocher, a public works spokesman. Repairs were scheduled to begin Wednesday morning, Kocher said. Police said they were on the scene helping to divert traffic.

Despite the tears he shed for his victim yesterday morning, Daniel Spencer Porter fits "the definition of a racist," a Baltimore judge said yesterday, as he found Porter criminally responsible for chasing a black man into a near-fatal traffic accident on Eastern Avenue last July 19."There was nothing there at all that would cause you to chase this man, other than that he was with a white woman," Chief Judge Robert I. H. Hammerman of the Baltimore Circuit Court told the Highlandtown man.The judge convicted Porter of all charges -- assault, reckless endangerment and racial harassment -- and ordered a psychological and medical evaluation.

In response to Lila Johnson's recent letter concerning the future of the "grand dame" row houses of the city ("A newcomer's search for a place to call home," Dec. 4), it is wonderful to hear someone from another state appreciate the beauty of Baltimore. I would also love to see the old houses on Harford Road, Biddle Street and East North Avenue renovated. I think the best way to have this happen is to start with the renovation of a row home in a neighborhood such as Canton, Fells Point or Butcher's Hill.

FROM THE grounds of the March Funeral Home on East North Avenue, voices were raised for the singing of gospel songs and the readings of scripture. The voices came not from the chapel, but from the parking lot. And they were lifted not as part of a ceremony of death, but as a celebration of a hoped-for rebirth. The occasion was a free concert Saturday night to highlight the East North Avenue Community Development Corp.'s fledgling initiative to revitalize what it calls the "Northern Gateway" to the east side.

Hundreds of protesters marched through downtown Baltimore on Monday evening to express outrage over the Trayvon Martin case but also to use the teen as a symbol of systemic issues facing the black community in the city and around the country. Several hundred protesters gathered in McKeldin Square next to the Inner Harbor before marching seven blocks to City Hall, shutting down streets during rush-hour traffic. It was the second day of protests in Baltimore after a Florida jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in Martin's death after a trial that captured national attention.

THE 1968 riots rank with the 1904 fire that wiped out much of the downtown business district and the state legislature's 1947 vote to prevent the city from annexing additional land as major events that changed the course of history for Baltimore this century.In the early hours, the unrest didn't seem like a momentous event. The city was relatively quiet after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis on the evening of #F Thursday, April 4. But by April 6, sporadic, isolated incidents had gained momentum.

Hanging out on rowhouse steps is a typical Baltimore thing to do. Unless they're not your steps. Then you're loitering. Or trespassing. And probably up to no good. Cops spend their shifts ushering people off corners and other people's steps and they use the loitering law to stop and frisk thousands of people each year. It's harassment to some, a relief to others, and a tool for police to detain people in their war on drugs and guns. Loitering is a rarely prosecuted crime, but frustrated residents across the city have devised unique ways to try to keep people off their steps.
