For the Catholic Worker peace activists who live there, West Baltimore's Jonah House is a place of community, prayer and good works, but to federal probation officials, it is a place of crime.Two former members of the Jonah House community, Susan Crane and Michele Naar Obed, have returned there in defiance of the U.S. Department of Probation, which ordered them not to live in the house after their release from federal prison, where they served terms for civil disobedience.About 20 people, including Crane and Obed, protested yesterday outside the downtown building that houses the federal probation offices, demanding that the probation terms be changed.

Philip Berrigan's grave sits inside an overgrown West Baltimore cemetery, giving inspiration to members of Jonah House who continue to protest war, violence and U.S. military spending from a house they built there. Eight years ago, Jonah House's war resisters, led by Berrigan and his wife, Elizabeth McAlister, became the official caretakers of St. Peter's graveyard, the final resting place of former parishioners of St. Peter the Apostle Roman Catholic Church, at Hollins and Poppleton streets.

A Baltimore County Circuit Court judge ignored a prosecutor's suggested guidelines and imposed stiff prison sentences yesterday on longtime peace activist Philip Berrigan and three co-defendants charged with malicious destruction of Maryland Air National Guard warplanes. "The amount of destruction in this case takes it out of the guidelines of the typical malicious destruction of property case," said Judge James T. Smith Jr. He sentenced Berrigan, 76, to 30 months in a Department of Corrections prison on charges of conspiring with the others to damage two A-10 Warthog aircraft at the Air National Guard base in Middle River and then carrying through on the action in the pre-dawn hours on Dec. 19, 1999.
