A month ago, Roosevelt Grandy had trouble getting to his home as police officers blocked off his West Baltimore neighborhood seeking clues to the afternoon killing of a 21-year-old man gunned down in the street. Yesterday afternoon, Grandy, 77, watched with appreciation from his steps as police returned to the community - one of Baltimore's most violent this year - to set up a different kind of operation, called the Community Safe Zone Project. Using metal barricades and traffic cones, police shut down a five-square-block area in Mondawmin to traffic and flooded the neighborhood with officers.

This Labor Day, an Elkridge man is launching a campaign to honor an overlooked class of workers: slaves. Eric A. Sheppard's newfound knowledge about a possible ancestor -- the subject of a 19th-century slave narrative -- has led him and his family on a mission to commemorate the contributions of enslaved people to the United States. "The ancestors are calling their descendants to tell their story," said Sheppard, a defense consultant born and raised in Baltimore. "If our ancestors slaved to build this country, we need people to tell about it."

Morgan State almost couldn't stand prosperity yesterday, but the Bears persevered against several Bethune-Cookman rallies and scored a 59-55 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference victory at Hill Field House. Buoyed by the return of leading scorer Randy Dukes and Douglas Sims from suspensions, the Bears shot ahead 24-6 at the outset with Dukes and Sam Brand combining for five three-pointers. But, by halftime, Bethune-Cookman (7-19, 5-11) was tied after Morgan struggled in an 11-minute stretch in which it scored one field goal.
