Northeast Baltimore City Councilman Robert Curran sparked a storm of community criticism by introducing an amendment to Belvedere Square's planned unit development (PUD) to fit landlord's James J.

Meanwhile, new board member Michael Ward directed folks to an MHS treasure most definitely not for sale. "If you want to see the original Star-Spangled Banner, it's right upstairs," Ward proudly declared.
