Three Towson University detectives have been awarded the campus Police Department's Medal of Merit after solving an armed robbery and home invasion in which a student was clubbed with a crowbar. The three detectives, Frank Remesch, Matthew Tewey and Richard Saylor, were among the first officers to arrive when the call for help came from a campus dormitory March 22, but the attackers had already fled. One attacker was armed with a handgun, the other a crowbar, with which he reportedly struck a student on the forehead after bursting into his room, police said.

"Fatti Maschii, Parole Femine," reads the Maryland State Seal, carrying the motto of its founders, the Calvert family: "Manly deeds, womanly voices."Extraordinary advice that, for while boldness and passion may fuel our actions, often we must temper our intensity with measured, disciplined, decorous speech if our inner vision is ever to be made real."Manly Deeds, Womanly Voices: Activism, Empowerment and Change in the Pre-Civil Rights Period, 1895-1963," a highly informative and touching exhibit just opened at the Banneker-Douglass Museum in Annapolis, does a masterful job of showing us that this duality of voices and deeds was an underlying theme of the African-American experience for much of our century.

DIRE consequences are predicted should 60 inner-city families be relocated to Baltimore County suburban neighborhoods. But the heavens didn't fall on similar occasions in the past.The clergymen's protest against racial exclusion at Gwynn Oak Amusement Park, on July 4, 1963, was supposed to bring the destruction of thousands of businesses. I remember it vividly. My minister, Rabbi Morris Lieberman of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, was a leader of the protest, and I had to defend his actions against members of the congregation who disapproved of a rabbi practicing what he preached.

When three men attacked, punched and robbed a man of his cellphone near downtown last weekend, the muggers apparently forgot about the hundreds of surveillance cameras watching over many of Baltimore's street corners. One of them captured the mugging, and police quickly arrested two men and recovered the stolen cellphone from a suspect's pants pocket. Commissioner Frederick H. Bealefeld III told the story at a budget presentation Monday, in part to argue for the necessity of the camera program.

AUG. 3, 1963, was a hot day in Baltimore, with the temperature in the 90s. But more than hot, the city was tense, restless. On June 11, in Cambridge, on the Eastern Shore, blacks and whites had clashed, and it had taken state police and the National Guard to restore order. On July 4, that same hot summer, whites had joined blacks in a protest march to desegregate Gwynn Oak Park.This was the same summer Malcolm X was preaching militant black nationalism, developing enthusiastic followings wherever he spoke.
