An aging transportation building and garage in Baltimore has been restored into the $8 million Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Housing and Resource Center, adding to the growing complex of services for the homeless along the Fallsway. The 24-hour facility will provide temporary housing and services to the city's homeless population, which officials believe may exceed 4,000 on any given night.

Baltimore is becoming the town that Harry and Jeanette Weinberg built -- or, at least, a town covered with their names. Mercy Medical Center boasts a new Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center to house its women's health and medicine program. In Waverly, a Harry and Jeanette Weinberg YMCA is to open next year. The Living Classrooms Foundation, which operates from a Weinberg center, is getting a new Weinberg pavilion.

The state cleared the way yesterday for one of Anne Arundel County's fastest-developing areas to welcome a 232-acre public park with nearly 7,000 feet of shoreline, varied habitats and groves of forestland. Despite a tight budget, the Board of Public Works approved spending $1.5 million from Program Open Space to acquire an area known as White Pond Park, off Fort Smallwood Road and abutting the Patapsco River and several creeks. The area will be renamed Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Park, after the Baltimore foundation that donated its interest in the property - valued at about $2.75 million - to make acquisition of the three parcels possible.

A GROUP OF 60 business owners and community leaders says that cars ought to be brought back to Howard Street. Perhaps. But rather than rushing to do an expensive street realignment a decade after cars were banished because of light rail, the city ought to implement a detailed redevelopment strategy for the street that was once the city's retail center.Many elements of a comprehensive strategy already exist. Among them are the Maryland Historical Society's expansion, a plan to build a new home for the Eubie Blake National Museum and Cultural Center at the corner of Howard and Franklin streets and a scheme that would turn the west side of the 400 block into artists' housing, studios, shops and restaurants.

Vandalism to manhole causes sewage to spill into Bel Air tributary Vandalism to a collector sewer in the woods in Bel Air caused 800,000 gallons of sewage to overflow into a tributary of Winters Run, public works officials said Tuesday. People were warned to avoid contact with the water behind Markham Court until May 20, Harford County health officials said. During a routine check, workers said that flow into the Woodland Hills pumping station had fallen below normal. Workers found that the debris in a manhole, apparently put in by vandals, caused an overflow.
