NEW YORK - While the federal government moves to give taxpayer dollars to church-based groups, an East New York congregation has gone the other way. Children recently began trickling into a newly renovated second-floor room stocked with shelves of books and new computers at the New York City public library's New Lots Avenue branch, which was recently renovated through a $100,000 pledge from St. Paul's Community Baptist Church. "I was surprised they had a library up here," said Kenny Gardner, 12, racing through computer screens after school.

They are the children who fall out of their perambulators whe the nurse is looking the other way. If they are not claimed in seven days they are sent far away to the Neverland to defray expenses. THE LOST BOYS made news. The television crews and the newspaper reporters went to that Neverland called East New York to take note of the fact that one of them, aged 15, had allegedly shot and killed two others in a high school hallway in what classmates called a "beef." This means a disagreement.

This is not a book about police and children in America's big cities. No middle-class, upper-class or even moderately well-off children are to be found. The police are not Officer Friendly types dispensing care and concern. "The Ville" is about black kids in the violent ghettos of Brownsville and East New York, and the police charged with upholding the law in an almost lawless land.This is familiar territory. A forest of trees has fallen to publish countless books, newspaper and magazine stories about the ghetto.

NEW YORK -- For a decade, the yellow-brick high school in East New York had been the center of Barbara Mendez's life. It was where she had grown up as a student, where she had met her husband, where she had won a special teaching apprenticeship and where she had become a teacher.When everything seemed to turn sour -- her marriage crumbling and her health deteriorating from multiple sclerosis -- it was at the school, the police now say, that the young woman recruited a student to take her life.

NEW YORK -- Shortly after midnight on a recent Sunday, in one of the poorest neighborhoods of New York City, 20-year-old Yesenia Rice gave birth in a clinic several miles from the nearest hospital.Her mother-in-law and aunt sat behind her on the thick double bed, one advising her to "yell and scream" and the other urging her to "breathe, breathe, breathe." Her mother stood behind the bathroom door, glad to be near her daughter but unable to watch the unmedicated pain.When the baby was finally born, after 33 hours of labor, the midwife cradled him briefly while his father, Kyle Rice, cut the umbilical cord.

Jason Hammel didn't arrive at Turner Field on Saturday night with many fond memories. He'd seen enough of the Braves in his three seasons in the National League. “These guys have given me nightmares, especially here,” he said. But it was here where the Orioles' 29-year-old right-hander would give his team its best pitching performance of the season. Hammel threw the best game of his seven-year career, taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning and finishing with his first complete-game shutout win. He allowed just one hit on the night - Jason Heyward's single to left with two outs in the seventh - propelling the Orioles to a 5-0 win over the Braves at Turner Field.

Originally, gangsta rap was all about attitude. It was about acting tough and living large, playing off ghetto stereotypes to come on like the baddest mothers ever to walk into a recording studio.Sure, some gangsta rappers originally were gangbangers. Eric "Eazy-E" Wright admitted to having pimped and dealt drugs before turning to the music business, and Ice-T has alluded to even darker doings during his gang period. But gang life wasn't a part of their rap career; it was just an image, and an attractive one at that.
