I  had an email this week from a reader who spotted two deer crossing Roland Avenue near Lake Avenue at about 10:30 at night. Only a few cars were on the street. Bright lights made the deer easy to spot as they crossed Roland and strolled into yards on the east side of the street.   She wrote trying to reach someone in the neighborhood association for that area. After emailing friends in north Roland Park, I learned these deer were not an unusual occurrence. One friend on St. George's Road said her munched-on garden is proof of their regular prowling.

One of these days it would be great if city and county would coordinate street repair. Traffic downtown has been snarled for months, and on Friday much of North Baltimore was in gridlock.   It took me 45 minutes to go from our house, near the corner of Cold Spring Lane and Roland Avenue, to Mount Washington Village.   Earlier in the day, when driving home from swimming laps at Meadowbrook , I had seen northbound Falls Road backed up from Lake Avenue almost to Northern Parkway.

When we lived off Lake Avenue, I noticed the lights on the Falls Road bridge over the railroad tracks were often on in the day. I have also noticed that typically some of the west side Beltway lights are on. Wednesday, for example, a long string of these lights were on as we traveled the Westside at 9 a.m. and were still on when we returned seven hours later. These are not isolated instances and have been going on for years - no, decades. This is another example of government waste.

For nearly two decades, the students of Boys' Latin School have had to fight traffic on West Lake Avenue whenever they wanted to go from one part of campus to another.Concerned about their safety, the school's administrators have decided to build a pedestrian bridge to link the upper school campus, on the north side of the 800 and 900 blocks of W. Lake Ave., with the lower and middle school campuses, on the south side.There's just one problem. The panel that reviews designs for new buildings in Baltimore neighborhoods took one look at the proposed bridge, with its precast concrete panels, thick columns and multiple flights of steps, and sent its designers back to the drawing board.

There's no beauty in a bridge.That was the contention of several Baltimore County condominium residents who yesterday opposed plans for a pedestrian bridge connecting the two sides of Boys Latin School, which straddles both the city-county border and busy Lake Avenue.But the Baltimore City Planning Commission sided with Boys Latin and approved, 4-1, a proposal to build the bridge over Lake Avenue at the northern edge of the city. The measure goes to City Council.Raleigh Brent, president of Boys Latin's board of directors, said the bridge, which is within the city boundaries, is needed to ensure the safety of students walking from one side of the 36-acre campus to the other.

Neighborhood: Lake Walker Location: Northern Baltimore Average sales price: $235,000 (January through June) Notable features: This neighborhood hard against the city-county line is, architecturally speaking, the opposite of the suburban cul-de-sac where every house looks exactly the same. Here you'll find 19th-century farmhouses, modest Depression-era homes, bungalows, brick townhouses, stylish Tudor townhouses and even some homes that could participate in a suburban cul-de-sac exchange program without anyone being the wiser.

Nestled along the outskirts of a woodsy park and a large lake are streets lined with charming homes that form a group of small neighborhoods collectively known as Lake Roland. The community backs to Robert E. Lee Memorial Park and is named for the lake, which a few of the secluded homes border. The boundaries loosely associated with the area include those streets along Lake Avenue, east of Falls Road and west of Charles Street and Bellona Avenue. The park serves as the northern boundary.
