Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus has homered in consecutive games. The one Saturday night against Tommy Hunter put the game into extra innings. And his blast in the first inning Sunday also had some significance. Rasmus' homer against Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez reached Eutaw Street, beyond the right-field flag court. It's the 78th to land there in Camden Yards history and the first this season. Of those 78 homers, 47 have been hit by opponents and four by Blue Jays.

One of Baltimore's most troubled and rundown private apartment complexes is headed for demolition, after its takeover by the federal government.In a move that signals a get-tough stance against negligent landlords, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has begun foreclosure proceedings against the owner of the 268-unit Eutaw Gardens apartment complex in north Baltimore and is relocating all of the tenants so the buildings can be torn down to make way for a development.

Last October, I started therapy. Not physical or psychotherapy but Orientation and Mobility (O&M) therapy. O&M is when a person with a visual impairment learns skills for independent travel, including how to use a white cane. October is Blindness Awareness Month, and I'd like to share my experience with you. Blindness is not an absolute. Light perception, peripheral and central vision, and blind spots differ from person to person. I live in the gray space of low vision between the light of sight and the darkness of full blindness.

Charlotte Ross worries about getting robbed as she walks on a dark pathway leading to her apartment building. Once inside, she sometimes sees rats, syringes, used condoms and homeless people. And if a letter is sent to her, she may never receive it because the mailboxes are broken.That's life at Eutaw Gardens, a sprawling West Baltimore apartment complex.This summer, more than 400 housing code violations were recorded at the complex, which extends from the 1900 block of Eutaw Place to the 200 block of Robert Street and along part of West North Avenue.

One of the first things Jo Ann Hebron Borden noticed when she took over as principal of Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School this summer was the lack of supplies. The supply closet was bare, and teachers told Borden they usually had to buy paper and other classroom necessities on their own. Knowing that there was no time to order items through the central administration, Borden decided to seek help elsewhere. "I wanted to make sure the teachers would be able to teach," she said. The principal struck gold on her first attempt.

Three local developers are vying for the chance to build townhouses in Baltimore's Bolton Hill neighborhood on the site of the Eutaw Gardens apartment complex.Baltimore Housing Commissioner Daniel P. Henson III received the bids in response to a request for proposals issued earlier this year for a 6.7-acre parcel at the southeast corner of North Avenue and Eutaw Place, where Eutaw Gardens is located.Deborah Diehl, president of the Mount Royal Improvement Association, said any of the three townhouse proposals would be "a major improvement" over the mostly vacant Eutaw Gardens, a 268-unit apartment complex that was taken over by the federal government last year after its owners defaulted on a federally insured loan.

Twenty-five years after she patrolled the crosswalk at Eutaw and Wilson streets in Bolton Hill, Theresa Marshburn received posthumous honors yesterday from the people she would most have loved to be with.At the school that bears her name, children of the 1990s sang and recited tributes to an activist of the 1960s -- the woman whose name hangs over the door of their elementary school.Many of Baltimore's 184 schools are named for teachers and principals and famous people. Mrs. Marshburn was a little of each in her corner of Baltimore, but she did most of her guiding and counseling and even acting like a parent to other people's children from her position outside -- not inside -- the school, at 1624 Eutaw Place.

THREE BUILDERS ARE competing to build townhouses in the $115,000-$160,000 range on the site of the soon-to-be-demolished Eutaw Gardens rental apartment complex at the northwestern edge of Bolton Hill. If done right -- meaning the designs are appealing and homeowners are provided with suburban-type amenities like individual garages -- these houses should sell.Bolton Hill is a "Baltimore classic," as resident historian Frank R. Shivers Jr. has noted. Many of its streets have the ambience of Georgetown.

When New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson nailed a home run over the right field flag court in the fifth inning Wednesday, his hit made history. It was the 10th home run this season to land on Eutaw Street, a Camden Yards single-season record. Nine homers were hit onto Eutaw Street last year. Granderson's homer traveled 422 feet and was the 76th to land on Eutaw Street in park history and the 46th by a visiting player. It was Granderson's second time doing it.

Blasting a home run onto Eutaw Street, just shy of the Warehouse past right field at Camden Yards, is a big deal, akin to a splash landing in McCovey Cove at AT&T Park. An asphalt landing on Eutaw Street earns players a commemorative plaque along the street with the player's name, team and the date and distance of the home run. In the ballpark's 21-year history, 68 players have accomplished this feat. Only one has had his plaque feature a misspelling. And it's a two-time Orioles All-Star, no less.

It is a long way from Lubbock, Texas, to Baltimore's Reservoir Hill, but Kelly Dale Terrill was up for the change. "I wanted to do something different, and I liked the Mid-Atlantic," said Terrill, 32. "So I got a job at the University of Maryland as a coordinator of development and alumni relations. " The year was 2005, and the trip east landed him in Columbia. He rarely came into the city other than for quick visits to the Inner Harbor or, as he said, "to do touristy things.

The Baltimore sports scene is blessed with a bunch of talented bloggers who bring their unique perspective to the conversation. Each week, I hope to chat with one of them in a regular feature called Blogger on Blogger. This week, I exchanged emails with Joe Polek, who blogs about the Orioles for Eutaw Street Report . MV: How important do you think it is that the Orioles get off to a good start like they did a year ago? JP: It's Opening Day and the Orioles need a big win. They have won their last two Opening Days, 10 of their last 12 and overall are 64-42 when Opening Day is in April.

Chris Davis' second-inning solo homer on Friday night was record-setting. It was the 66th homer to land onto Eutaw Street - behind the right-field flag court - in Camden Yards history. And it was also the ninth this year - the most Eutaw Street homers hit in any one season. The previous record was eight, set in 2008. Davis has hit three there this year. He homered again in the fourth and again in the sixth  - neither onto Eutaw Street - giving him 23 on the season. That surpasses his career-high of 21 set in 2009.

Eutaw Street homers are always a fun little novelty at Camden Yards. This year, they are almost the norm. On Friday, two homers - Asdrubal Cabrera's in the third and Matt Wieters' in the sixth - landed on the street beyond the right-field scoreboard and flag court. It was just the second time two have reached Eutaw in one game in the stadium's history. Rafael Palmeiro did it twice on April 11, 1997 against the Texas Rangers. So there was a little history on Eutaw Street on Friday and there will be more the next time one lands there this year.

THE PROBLEM: A broken traffic light was sending mixed signals to some North Avenue drivers. THE BACKSTORY: You may remember two-time Maryland candidate Mike Schaefer, a recurring character in columns by Watchdog colleague Laura Vozzella. (No, he's not related to the former governor but yes, he was the one who called Sheila Dixon a "queen for a day.") Schaefer makes a brief appearance here because he requested assistance solving a mystery he encountered while traveling west on North Avenue.

David Ortiz smashed a homer to right on Monday that was part of Boston's three-run sixth to tie the score at 5-5. It has a little more significance than that, though. The blast traveled past the flag court and landed on Eutaw Street - the 62nd time that has happened in Camden Yards' 20-year history and 37th time by an opponent. It was Ortiz's second shot there, the first coming on Sept. 9, 2003 against Damian Moss. What's most interesting is that there have been five homers hit onto Eutaw (four by an opponent; one by Chris Davis)

Commuters who've begun using downtown streets because of lane closures on the Jones Falls Expressway might want to think about a backup plan for Thursday evening and Friday. The Baltimore Department of Transportation will close streets in the Mount Vernon neighborhood from 3 p.m. Thursday through midnight Saturday to accommodate the 95th annual Flowermart. Other city events this weekend will require detours as well. The Flowermart closures will be in effect on Charles Street from Centre to Read streets; Madison Street from St. Paul to Cathedral streets; and Mount Vernon Place from Cathedral to St. Paul streets.
