Gregory F. Hamm, for three years the public face of Columbia's hotly contested downtown redevelopment plan, was fired Thursday by his new Dallas-based bosses, who were apparently unhappy with the slow pace of the project, still more than a year from groundbreaking. The abrupt manner in which the move was made has raised doubts among some about where the project is headed, though Howard Hughes Corp. executives went to great pains to reassure local officials during a series of meetings Thursday, the officials said.

THE BALTIMORE Police Department's experiment with out-of-town commissioners has ended abruptly with the firing of New Yorker Kevin P. Clark. Mayor Martin O'Malley's choice of Baltimore native Leonard D. Hamm to head the agency makes sense right now for a department that has worked under three commissioners in four years. A well-liked former city police major who advocates a return to basics, Commissioner Hamm, 55, represents a stable, calming influence - for the department, which has undergone numerous changes at the top with each new commissioner; for the city, which is watching the murder rate climb toward 300; and for the mayor, who made fighting crime and knocking down that murder rate the No. 1 priority of his administration.

Baltimore police Commissioner Leonard Hamm is dying in increments. "When the pager goes off and I look at the location of [a homicide]," Hamm said yesterday, "I know [the victims] are black men and I know the perps are black men. A little bit of me dies each time it happens - as a black man, as a father, as an uncle and also as a police commissioner." Death was the topic yesterday when I spoke with Hamm at police headquarters. At the time we met, Baltimore's homicide count was 152 compared with 133 at the same time last year.

General Growth Properties has agreed to county planners' request to provide 15 percent of new housing in a redeveloped downtown Columbia for people who make $80,000 or less annually, but company leaders are resisting another key county suggestion. The firm's executives went before the county Planning Board on Thursday evening at Wilde Lake High School to answer questions raised during the company's presentation two weeks ago and to listen to testimony from residents. "It's all the crossing of i's and the dotting of t's, as you would expect," said Greg Hamm, senior vice president and Columbia general manager for General Growth, Columbia's developer.

For years, Annie and Eugene Hamm worried about the stairs. Their daughter was physically and developmentally disabled, and it was becoming harder to carry her up and down the front stairs of their Aberdeen house. "It got to be where we couldn't handle the steps," says Annie Hamm, who is 81; her husband 82. "It was dangerous." What the Hamms needed was a ramp so their daughter, Betty, could roll down in her wheelchair. But a ramp would cost thousands of dollars. "More than we could afford, I'll tell you," says Annie Hamm, who is a housewife.

Facing a cash crunch that has it considering selling off properties, developer and multiple-mall owner General Growth Properties is at the same time about to take the next step in what could be a big moneymaker: the makeover of downtown Columbia. The development company is planning to submit rezoning requests this week for perhaps the biggest project the county has seen since Columbia's birth four decades ago. The fate of those requests could determine how much of a financial transfusion the company can expect.

As part of the remaking of central Columbia, the developer hopes to provide about 20 percent of new residences for limited-income people through a private, nonprofit corporation. The idea is to provide "full-spectrum housing" by creating a multimillion-dollar housing fund, said Gregory F. Hamm, vice president of General Growth Properties. The money would come from impact fees charged to developers who buy land in Town Center and from square-foot surcharges on retail and commercial tenants.

Talking to the soft-spoken Mia Hamm, you would never think that this is the 5-foot-5 striker who wreaks havoc on opposing teams.She glides through defenders with ease. She delivers pinpoint passes that sometimes stun her teammates. Even more impressive is the power she packs in her kicks despite her 125-pound frame.U.S. national team coach Tony DiCicco says Hamm is the total package."Mia is obviously extremely dynamic, multi-talented," DiCicco said. "She is a good passer, exceptional dribbler.

When Harriet Fisher's son Jason graduated from Centennial High School in 2000, he could not climb onto the stage at Merriweather Post Pavilion during the procession with his classmates. Jason is a lifelong sufferer of cerebral palsy, and he and his wheelchair had to be brought in separately. That story surprised Gregory F. Hamm, vice president of General Growth Properties. He assured Fisher, a member of the access committee of county's Commission on Disability Issues, that he is professionally and personally committed to involving the committee in planning for the redevelopment of Town Center.
