On a drive along Cromwell Bridge Road east of Towson, you'll notice a classic white barn surrounded by a stretch of wooden fencing. Follow the entry drive at Cromwell Valley Park and you'll encounter a modest green sign marked Talmar. Talmar stands for Therapeutic Alternatives of Maryland. It's a nonprofit therapy center where participants get their hands a little dirty during a day's work. Its home is a handful of acres containing rows of flower beds and greenhouses and a 50-hen chicken coop.

The red Chevy Cavalier spews smoke -- its transmission clattering like a bag of empty beer cans -- as Officer Gary Smith and his partner pull away from the Northeast District police station and head toward Ednor Gardens on a miserably cold night.Hunkered down in the blown-out bucket seats of the unmarked car, they are part of a special detail assigned to hunt down stickup men who have been preying for a month on residents of the tidy rowhouse neighborhood behind Memorial Stadium."I guess we take what we can get," Officer Smith says to John Madiganas the car rumbles up Argonne Drive and their radio crackles with what would be the night's only good news.

IN THEIR EAGERNESS to raise Baltimoreans' income taxes, Mayor Martin O'Malley and the City Council should visit the area just north of the Memorial Stadium demolition site. In the bright sunshine of a May morning, the blazing azaleas look glorious. That's why it's so shocking to see 10 "For Sale" signs in the 3600, 3700 and 3800 blocks of Kimble Road. When the Edward J. Gallagher Co. started building rowhouses on a portion of the Montebello estate after World War I, he named the community after his sons, Edward and Norman.

Walking by the shady streets, manicured lawns and colorful blooms of Ednor Gardens and Lakeside, neighbors often call out friendly greetings.Many who live in the tiny community nestled behind Memorial Stadium and next to Lake Montebello say they love it because it offers an old-fashioned, borrowed cup-of-sugar-over-the-backyard-fence lifestyle which has all but vanished in other city neighborhoods. Those who move away often return. Many swap garden advice and plants.One elderly gentleman even willed his house to another neighbor who cared for him in his final days.

Ednor Gardens isn't in the grip of desperation As a 20-year resident of Ednor Gardens and Kimble Road, I was concerned by The Sun's editorial regarding the number of "For Sale" signs on our street ("Signs of desperation in Ednor Gardens," May 4). Contrary to The Sun's implication, the neighbors I've spoken with about sale of their houses are not selling because of worry over city or neighborhood decay or taxes. Rather, their reasons seem to be more common: the kitchen is too small, the growing children need a bigger yard and, of course, it is a seller's market.

Two city water meter readers turned in phony numbers in at least two neighborhoods in recent months, the Department of Public Works acknowledged Tuesday, leading to more inaccurate billing by an agency that has been troubled by aging infrastructure and high error rates. As the Bureau of Water and Wastewater tries to correct the mistakes, residents who were undercharged are seeing a spike in their water charges - and officials say they must pay. The latest twist in the city's water billing problems, which have affected at least one in 10 local homeowners, did not go over well in the North Baltimore neighborhood of Homeland, where residents were already angry about the unusually high charges.

I wanted to help get the word out about this unique program available to the middle class in certain city neighborhoods through the nonprofit Healthy Neighborhoods that could give $6,000 toward closing or $25,000 grants to fix up an abandoned or foreclosed home or one that's subject to a short sale. Here's the catch: You have to live in the home; it can't be an investment property. But the income levels are much higher than many government programs. Individuals can qualify if they earn up to $71,900 a year.
