For 40 years, Bob Hieronimus' mural has stood watch over the Charles North community, its depictions of an American eagle, the great seal of the United States and Baltimore's Battle Monument serving as a constant in the evolving neighborhood. Now, a new coat of paint and an enlarged canvas should ensure it continues to do so for at least another four decades. Called "The Bicentennial Mural" when it was first painted in 1974 on a wall overlooking a park at Lafayette and St. Paul streets, Hieronimus' work has expanded in both size and scope.

The announcement came with a stealthiness that suggested the handiwork of the Cigarette-Smoking Man from the "X-Files" - another truth-teller daring to flout conventional wisdom, silenced by shadowy figures of authority. The rebellious voice belonged to Zoh Hieronimus, Baltimore's answer to Fox Mulder. The authority figures - oh, all right, maybe not so shadowy - were Bob Pettit and Sean Casey, the station manager and programming director of WCBM (680 AM). Last Friday, the two men called Hieronimus in to tell her that she had already broadcast her final show for the locally owned station.

In "Taking Woodstock," director Ang Lee gets the vibes of Woodstock right - everything from the camaraderie and the sense of oneness to the tripping and the sense of freedom. So says Trudy Morgul, who was at Woodstock in a VW bus designed by pop painter and muralist Bob Hieronimus. An Associated Press photographer even took a picture of her and three friends, sitting in and on the bus. That image appeared in newspapers and magazines throughout the country. "The movie really put me in the mood to go right back there," says Morgul, 65. "Mostly, I think everyone that went there will love this movie."

In the studio of a shabby Owings Mills radio station, Zohar M. Hieronimus adjusts her earphones and prepares for launch into talk-radio hyperspace.After a tinkly musical cue, she begins a bewildering monologue -- a "Late Morning Show with Zoh" trademark -- that leapfrogs from Passover's celebration of freedom to whether the Red Sea's parting was a natural or supernatural occurrence to a savage attack on Oliver North, who is a guest host on Rush Limbaugh's national...

Teams from the Negro Baseball Leagues -- their names anyhow -- are going to be reincarnated. It's a move to help some Little League players in Baltimore become aware of the history that preceded their present interest in the game. They'll be able to identify because they'll actually be wearing uniforms with names from the past.Youngsters on at least five teams will be playing in uniforms that are replicas of Negro clubs no longer in existence. Among those expected to be represented are the Baltimore Elite Giants, Homestead Grays, Newark Eagles, Kansas City Monarchs and Birmingham Black Barons.

Now, let me tell you about the time . . .Young Clifford Martin was all eyes and ears as Gene Benson recalled how he popularized the basket catch before Willie Mays. Bill "Ready" Cash recounted how he used to slam home runs off Don Larsen in the Latin and Canadian leagues, and wondered how Larsen ever threw a perfect game in the World Series.These were some of the veterans of the old Negro Baseball Leagues brought together yesterday to pass on the history and folklore of their sports careers during the age of racial segregation.

Maybe the polar ice caps have melted, plunging the greenswards and putting greens of the Worthington Valley under water.Perhaps nuclear fallout has poisoned the once-pastoral countryside where horses grazed and foxes darted for their lives.Or a global oil shortage has caused economic chaos, prompting murderous marauders to scour the county for food and shelter.Fire or ice, whimper or bang, if things fall apart, Zoh and Bob Hieronimus are ready. They've been ready for awhile, and by now, the untold chores of subterranean survival -- rotating canned goods, stuffing and burying food "torpedoes," stockpiling cotton swabs -- are no longer novel, but tiresome necessities.

When it comes to yellow submarines, Bob Hieronimus has done just about everything but live in one.A native Baltimorean whose murals and painted cars made him one of the city's more prominent counterculture figures in the 1960s, Hieronimus has taken on the roots of teacher, founder of a school for the study of metaphysics and mystic arts, and, since 1988, radio-show host (his :21st Century Radio" airs weekdays from 10 p.m. to midnight on WCBM-AM.But one of the constants over all those years has been a fascination with "Yellow Submarine," a 1968 animated film "starring" the Beatles and their songs (more on that later)
