Construction of an environmentally friendly building honoring U.S. Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski ceremonially began yesterday in Fells Point, once the home base of the former community activist. The Mikulski Workforce Development Center will provide 3,000 square feet of additional space for the Living Classrooms Foundation's programs, and for pupils at the new Crossroads Middle School next door. Mikulski helped to secure $300,000 in federal funds, and the city chipped in $75,000. "We knew that they were struggling for funds, and we knew that they had a dream," she said.

Gov. Martin O'Malley's chief of staff will step down in May to head the Goldseker Foundation in Baltimore, the nonprofit plans to announce today. Matt Gallagher, who has worked with O'Malley for 13 years and ran Baltimore's CitiStat operation, will succeed the retiring Timothy D. Armbruster. Armbruster ran Goldseker for 34 years, focusing its philanthropy on neighborhood revitalization and economic development. "I've always felt a strong connection to the city, and this was a particularly exciting opportunity that hasn't been available in a generation," said Gallagher, 40. O'Malley expects to announce Gallagher's replacement today.

NEW YORK - An astonishing $3 billion was raised to help the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and nearly all that money has been spent, the bulk of it handed over in cash grants, some without regard to financial need. The practice of giving victims direct cash assistance was in part driven by pressure from donors and scrutiny from the news media over whether charities were spending the money quickly enough and putting it in the hands of grieving families, unemployed workers and people left homeless by destruction, ash and debris.

At the request of readers last year, I plan in 1994 to occasionally cover the issue of seeking grants to augment a nonprofit organization's revenue. Having visited the topic periodically in 1992, I think its absence in 1993 has made the topic grow fonder.Over the past decade, the sluggish economy has placed nonprofit finances in a vise, and prospects for 1994 are not much brighter. Charities are competing for grant awards from government, foundations and corporations at an unprecedented rate.

They finished the season 31-51, beginning a long slide after the loss of all-purpose forward John Williams, who underwent knee surgery Dec. 4, 1989.

A publicity-shy charity headquartered hundreds of miles from Maryland is quietly working on plans to build an office building in Carroll County that would provide rent-free space for area nonprofit organizations. The Georgia-based foundation has for several months met behind the scenes with Carroll charitable groups and government officials to determine how it could help serve the county's needy. Avoiding public meeting agendas and stressing the importance of proceeding with discretion, the nonprofit Anverse Inc. foundation has come up with a preliminary plan to donate space for groups such as Head Start and the Community Foundation of Carroll County.

TYLERTON -- The usual signs of spring have appeared here on Smith Island. The "snowball bush" by Miss Virginia Evans' house is blooming. Pesky gnats fill the air when the breeze dies down.But the season also has brought signs of anger and despair to this 400-year-old fishing community in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Four red-and-white billboards have been erected by the island's watermen, attacking the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for its advocacy of government restrictions on their livelihood.
