The pending sale of the Harbour House, a quiet old waterside restaurant rarely visited by late-night revelers, is reigniting a dispute between Annapolis residents and restaurant owners over closing times for downtown taverns, but all the roles are reversed.Alderman Louise Hammond, who usually fights late-night closings in the historic district, argues that the 500-seat restaurant at the end of City Dock should be sold with its license for 2 a.m. closing intact.Restaurant owners, some of whom have clashed with Mrs. Hammond over their own bids for late-night liquor licenses, accuse her of playing favorites.

At one of Annapolis' public housing buildings last week, new solar panels on the roof collected energy to heat hot water for more than two dozen apartments below. Inside, a message scrawled on the wall asked whoever had been urinating in the hallway to knock it off. It seems an odd juxtaposition - high technology above, reeking hallways below - but the two are directly related. The outdated buildings of the cash-strapped housing authority made them prime targets for a company that has come up with an innovative business plan to capture renewable energy credits by spreading green technology - in this case, installing solar panels on the roofs of two public housing complexes at no charge.

Theresa Hamer stood under a tangle of wires at the entrance of her Harbour House apartment building one afternoon last week, keeping a close eye -- through a hole in the front door -- on two toddlers playing tag.Railings sway in the breeze, and the intercom box is broken at Building 1130, but Ms. Hamer isn't complaining about the disrepair. It's temporary, as is her home in this building. The noisy construction across the street reminds her that her neighborhood is in the midst of a transformation.

For years, Carrie Dickerson has prayed that the shootings, drug-dealing and public drinking would end and that the kids and old folks would come out at night once again to reclaim their Annapolis neighborhood.Yesterday, the 66-year-old stood in the sunshine at Harbour House, the city's largest public housing complex, and gave thanks. Her prayers, she said, had been answered, with the opening of a new, permanent satellite police station."We were fed up. It's about time we clean up the whole act. And now, at last, we're going to do that," said Dickerson, president of the anti-drug Planning Action Committee for Harbour House and the neighboring Eastport Terrace public housing communities.

Annapolis housing officials are investigating whether an alderman found by police in a city-owned complex during a drug raid last week is living there in violation of a lease agreement. Alderman Kenneth A. Kirby had little to say Tuesday about where he lives. Annapolis police said Kirby, who was in one of two apartments that were raided, is not accused of any wrongdoing. "I'm 57 years old, if I want to lay my head there or anywhere else in the city of Annapolis, that's where I'll be," said Kirby, who was elected to the council in 2009.

Annapolis detectives continued yesterday to investigate a Memorial Day shooting at an apartment complex in Eastport that left an Annapolis man dead and two men wounded. Authorities were looking into the possibility that the shooting was in retaliation for the beating of an informant in a homicide case, but investigators said that it was premature to speculate on a motive for the shooting at the Harbour House apartment complex off Madison Street. No suspects had been identified, police said.
