From a makeshift stage on a vacant lot in the heart of East Baltimore, officials stressed two themes yesterday at a celebratory announcement of key agreements to make a proposed biotech park a reality. One was the promise of the project - which could create 8,000 jobs and hundreds of units of new and rehabilitated housing - to transform the disintegrated area around the Johns Hopkins medical complex into a vibrant community that is an asset to the entire city. The other was the difficulty in forging agreements on the makeup of a board to oversee the park's development, to fairly compensate residents who will have to be relocated and to ensure that the mostly poor, black community benefits from the project.

Fewer than 100 middle school children will be held back this fall under the Howard County school district's stricter new middle school promotion and retention policy. School board members received confirmation at their meeting last night that their year-old standards for middle school promotion were tough, but that careful preparation for the new policy prevented even more children from staying back. "I think it sent a strong message," said the district's middle school director, Alice Haskins.
