A surveillance camera near the East Baltimore murder scene spied a group from the Black Guerrilla Family gathered to congratulate a gang member on a job well done - a long-time rival was dead and a prior killing avenged. Henry Mills had been a BGF target since the gang started to take over the drug trade along a stretch of Greenmount Avenue years before, and he was suspected of murdering a senior BGF figure, authorities say. By 2011 Mills' insistence on running a freelance heroin operation on gang territory was too much to tolerate.

Malik Smallwood lounged in front of Baltimore's Juvenile Justice Center, puffing on a cigarette and his recalling his teenage years spent in and out of the facility — he called it "kiddie camp. " Now 18, Smallwood said temptation loomed on the streets. Detention, in a way, was easier and saved him from that. Yet any attempts to rehabilitate him at the East Baltimore facility didn't do much good, he acknowledged. He had returned for a hearing on his latest juvenile charge. Baltimore law enforcement officials and child advocates have long questioned the efficacy and ethics of locking up juveniles accused of breaking the law, arguing it can doom them to a life of crime.

I remember the faded photograph my aunt kept in a place of honor in her home. My grandfather was 5, sitting atop a pony at the corner of North Patterson Park and Ashland avenues. He wore a petticoat and cap. It was about 1925. I remember the stories about "Pop" Schoppert, my grandfather's father, making the trip from West Virginia to Baltimore to seek a better life. The trunk with which he traveled sits in the basement of my parents' house. I remember, as a child, examining it, imagining that journey.

She was buried in a small pink coffin. But before the casket closed Friday, mourners gathered at the Israel Baptist Church in East Baltimore to say goodbye to 3-year-old McKenzie Elliott, whose hair, as in many of the pictures of her that flashed on the church's large screen, was in braids with little white bows. The toddler was struck by a stray bullet outside her home in Waverly a week before. Two others were also injured in the shooting. Police sources said Friday that a person of interest turned himself in for questioning in the shooting, though no charges have been filed.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's plan to beautify the approaches to Baltimore for visitors arriving by rail may seem like a triumph of style over substance in efforts to revitalize the city's image. But first impressions really do count, and the mayor is right that it doesn't have to be the depressing landscape of boarded-up houses and trash-strewn yards that greets rail passengers today. In the grand scheme of things, sprucing up the route along which travelers pass as they enter the city won't by itself transform Baltimore's fortunes.

If you're a fan of The Quest Bar on Fleet Street in East Baltimore, the good news is there's a big party there this Saturday. The bad news is the party is a last hurrah. After nearly 15 years, bar owner Tom Mathison is selling his longtime Highlandtown establishment -- perhaps the last true gay bar on the east side -- to developers, who plan to tear the tavern down and put in townhomes, he said Thursday. "It's just bittersweet when you've done something half your life, seeing it end," said Mathison, 66, who spent years tending bars on Boston Street and in Fells Point before starting Quest.
