Joy Sushinsky is not your average busybody. She is not the type of person who peeks at neighbors from behind her curtains and gossips about their activities. Instead, Sushinsky, a soft-spoken, 28-year-old homeowner on one of Hampden's few troublesome blocks, has become - somewhat reluctantly - a driven neighborhood activist, a watchdog with a purpose higher than mere curiosity. Upset by the aimless, belligerent teenagers and low-level drug dealers who congregate on Elm Avenue and a tiny park there, occasionally harassing residents and committing random acts of vandalism, Sushinsky has strong-armed city officials, the Baltimore Police Department and various community groups into doing something about it. But it has taken three years, she said, and the battle is far from over.

Change can be hard to get used to, even when you want it, even when you're expecting it, even when people are telling you the change is going on. Here's what I mean. After numerous residents and businesses complained about the intersection at Elm Avenue and 36th Street, the Hampden Village Merchants Association requested that Baltimore City turn it into a four-way stop. That was months ago. Then one night, after a late dinner with friends, as I was driving home, I noticed some makeshift signs in the intersection.

An off-duty city police officer critically wounded a man who was holding up a Hampden liquor store Friday night. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said a customer at Hampden Liquors left the store as it was being robbed by two men about 8:20 p.m. The customer encountered an off-duty Northwestern District officer walking along the 3700 block of Falls Road. The officer went to the store and saw a 20-year-old man pointing a handgun at a clerk. Guglielmi said the officer, while on the street, "took a defensive position" and fired shots at the robber, wounding him in the upper torso.
