To show potential home buyers that they have the chops to complete a top-flight rowhouse renovation, City Life Builders last week opened a rehab model home in East Baltimore. The two-story, red-brick home is on North Collington Avenue between Ashland Avenue and East Madison Street. You can't miss the lime green front door at the top of the white marble steps. "We've got this process down," said Anne Riggle, City Life's president. The firm has rehabbed scores of homes throughout Baltimore since the early 1980s and has also built several new home communities.  This model home, blocks from Johns Hopkins Hospital, is intended to take their rehab business to the next level.

More than 80 firefighters responded. Baltimore Fire Capt. Roman Clark said the fire was difficult to extinguish because of all the mattresses stored inside.

Hundreds of Baltimore students started 2014 exploring a sprawling new campus that officials say will become a national model for urban education reform. The highly anticipated Elmer A. Henderson School, run by the Johns Hopkins University and Morgan State University, opened its doors Thursday to more than 350 students who have been waiting several years to move from small portable classrooms to the 90,000-square-foot building. "It's huge," Onya Boyd said as she walked up and down the school's hallways, well after the bell rang, in search of her daughter's third-grade classroom.

From a window of his family's longtime North Bond Street rowhouse in East Baltimore, Lloyd Williams videotaped the activity on the street. A builder and home remodeler who grew up in the Oliver neighborhood, Williams was shocked by how the area had deteriorated since he left in the early 1990s. The scene was surreal, he thought, with addicts darting around corners to score drugs. "It was something out of a story, some type of science-fiction story, to see people controlled by drugs so vividly," he said.

Mortician Erich March told me he was tired of seeing people in his East Baltimore community die of conditions like diabetes and hypertension. He blamed the lack of grocery shopping choices in the neighborhood where he grew up and where his Aisquith Street funeral home is located. He and his wife, Michele Speaks-March, were determined to bring a new style of shopping to the Oliver, South Clifton and Darley Park neighborhoods. They were not targeting the vegan or food faddist crowd.
