Vandals broke into a portable classroom at Gardenville Elementary School before the start of the school day yesterday, leaving a mess of ruined schoolbooks and furniture and urine on the floor. Fourth-grade teacher Valerie Belton said she was devastated to discover the havoc in her classroom, which she had renovated over the summer with furniture donated by IKEA in White Marsh. "I just stood in the middle of the floor and started crying," said Belton, who had relished surprising her pupils with the new bookshelves, carpets and colorful bear-shaped armchairs.

IF YOU hold it, they will come. From blocks away and states away, they came to salute Bill Grace, who for the past 50 years has been coaching the youths of Northeast Baltimore. The domain of "Mr. Bill" isn't a field of dreams, however. It's a court of dreams. Though admittedly never a basketball "player," Grace could always coach the sport with the best and nearly 150 of his former players, friends and family members gathered Sunday to salute the man who made quality basketball and Gardenville Recreation Center synonymous.

Gardenville is so named because it actually was once Baltimore's garden. It was the premier truck farming region where the city got most of its fruits and vegetables.Houses now stand where tomatoes and beans once grew at Belair and Moravia roads. But this coming spring the community will be getting a new and very unique kind of garden. A labyrinth walk and meditation garden will be built in front of St. Anthony of Padua's Roman Catholic Convent on Frankford Avenue."It's part of a program called `Sacred Places -- Open Spaces' which attempts to put places of peace and beauty in urban areas," said Gloria Carpeneto, a pastoral associate.

Library policy is not about saving Gardenville or Park Heights ot Baltimore City. Its mission is to save the Enoch Pratt Free Library, unless someone provides wherewithal to fulfill another mission. What Greenspan really says is that he doesn't know, either.
