More than two dozen Johns Hopkins University students and staff painted the corridors of the 29th Street Community Center on Saturday as part of the school's annual President's Day of Service. Among them was the university's president himself. Crouching on his knees with brush in hand to cover a few hard-to-reach spots on the walls outside the center's main office, Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels modeled roles he wanted students to play when he launched the community service day in 2009.

FOR YEARS, Baltimore boosters have been dreaming about a "Big Bang" - a local burst of development akin to the birth of the universe. The announcement that Johns Hopkins medical institutions plan to spend $1 billion over the next eight years to upgrade their East Baltimore campus promises to be part of such a momentous chain reaction. Together with two separate projects, an $800 million biotech park and the city's ambitious plan to redevelop the old Church Home and Hospital site into a residential area, this commitment has the potential to transform the dank Broadway corridor and link it more closely to the downtown business district.

Of the 12 Johns Hopkins players who have caught passes thus far, more than half of them are wide receivers. In fact, the top four in receptions and yards are wideouts. But in just four games, sophomores Quinn Donaldson and Bradley Munday have emerged as senior quarterback Braden Anderson's favorite targets. The 6-foot, 190-pound Donaldson leads the No. 10 Blue Jays (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference) in catches (18), yards (301) and receiving touchdowns (three)

The workers who staff the federal government in Washington are whiter, richer, more educated and more liberal than the rest of the country, according to two political scientists at Johns Hopkins University —who warn of the potential for a troubling gap between the federal workforce and the people it serves. "It might be a problem," said Jennifer Bachner, director of the Hopkins' master's degree program in government analytics. "If the government looks very different demographically than the American people, the question is: Can they govern well?

In Johns Hopkins' 33-14 rout of Moravian on Sept. 20, senior quarterback Braden Anderson posted career highs in passing yards (218) and completion percentage (73.5). It took Anderson only one week to surpass those totals, throwing for 359 yards and connecting on 76.3 percent of his passes in Saturday's 42-26 victory over Centennial Conference foe Muhlenberg. Add a career-best four touchdowns, and it's easy to see why Blue Jays coach Jim Margraff called Anderson's performance the best of his career.

River Hill All-Metro forward Alex Hamer did her part, winning the right side before sending a perfect cross to the middle with less than three minutes left at Centennial. She knew exactly who would be there to handle the rest. It was junior midfielder Jessica Hopkins who made the perfect run before emphatically heading home the difference as the No. 2 Hawks were able to withstand a considerable challenge to claim a 2-1 come-from-behind win over the Eagles in Howard County. River Hill improved to 8-2 and 7-0 in league play, while the Eagles fell to 5-4-1 and 4-3. The game was played on even terms most of the way with the Eagles taking a 1-0 lead early in the second half before Hamer and Hopkins dominated the final minutes to rally the Hawks.

Sexual abuse by a doctor is medical malpractice. The abuse took place while Dr. Nikita Levy was an employee of Johns Hopkins, working at a Johns Hopkins facility, where he was not adequately supervised ( "Why is Hopkins liable in the Levy case?" Sept. 30). For example, he performed thousands of pelvic exams with no chaperon present - a violation of standard medical practice. Did his staff not notice? The women's claims were not handled as individual malpractice lawsuits but as a class action, which saved the hospital years of costly litigation and embarrassment.

After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

Some women at high risk for breast cancer because of an inherited gene mutation, including actress Angelina Jolie, are choosing to have preventive double mastectomies. Other women who have cancer in one breast are asking their doctors to remove the other breast removed out of caution. Whatever the reason, more women are having both breasts removed in response to cancer or a cancer threat. Dr. David Euhus, chief of breast surgery in the division of surgical oncology at Johns Hopkins Hospital, explains the trend and what happens after.

Can anybody explain why Johns Hopkins is liable for any of the reprehensible actions of Dr. Nikita Levy ( "Attorney says Hopkins was informed of improper exams before investigation," Sept. 26)? Why is Johns Hopkins Medicine agreeing to pay anything to the victims of Dr. Levy's serious transgressions? Was Johns Hopkins in any way responsible for the harm that was caused to Dr. Levy's victims? In all of the reporting on this case I have never heard one thing that would indicate Dr. Levy's actions were allowed or caused or in any way made possible by Johns Hopkins.
