William Donald Schaefer, the dominant political figure of the last half-century of Maryland history, died Monday after a "do-it-now" career that changed the face of Baltimore while bringing a new burst of energy to the city he loved. Mr. Schaefer was 89. In four terms as mayor and two as governor, he was a champion of big projects that transformed Baltimore: Harborplace, Camden Yards, the National Aquarium, the Convention Center and the light rail among them. Yet he was also intensely involved with the mundane details of city neighborhoods.

THE RESPONSE of Anne Arundel County officials and others to the vandalism of a Lothian church was the correct one: outrage - and the offer of help. Racial epithets were scrawled on a wall, furnishings, a computer and other office equipment were destroyed, and a pantry the church maintains for the needy was raided in the attack last week on the non-denominational Rapture Church.

In a show of support, Arundel County Executive Janet Owens plans to attend services Sunday in a tent that will be used until repairs are made.
