Troy Douglas no longer sits at his desk at William Paca Elementary. The third-grader's classmates and teachers have decorated it with cards and balloons to preserve his memory. The 8-year-old no longer walks past the house on Lakewood Avenue that burst into flames last week as he made his way home from school, leaving Troy buried under bricks and debris. A wreath of blue flowers - his favorite color - hangs from the chain-link fence surrounding the ruined structure. At Troy's funeral Wednesday, mourners said that though the bright-eyed boy is gone, Southeast Baltimore will not forget the smile and sense of humor that brought his community together in both life and death.

In a recent series of articles that involved ranking 329 elementary schools in the four largest Baltimore-area school systems as to their effectiveness in teaching reading, four Baltimore elementaries - Lakewood, Malcolm X, Montebello and Samuel F. B. Morse - should not have been ranked because of insufficient test data. In addition, the rankings of 18 other city elementary schools were based on three available test scores, not four scores as were rankings for the remaining 97 city elementary schools.

For years, the 900 block of N. Lakewood Ave. in East Baltimore has sat weed-choked and vacant, near an auto repair shop and rows of brick garages with flat roofs and weather-beaten doors.Residents of two-story rowhouses in the racially mixed neighborhood east of Johns Hopkins Hospital had convinced the city to tear down rat-infested garages and clear away junk cars. But longtime owners of homes across the street and elsewhere in the neighborhood could only watch helplessly as tenants west of the vacant lot abandoned apartments and as loiterers and drug dealers took over street corners.

A Baltimore man was shot three times yesterday by a city officer after police chased the man to his grandmother's house in East Baltimore. Egan Davis, 23, was shot in the right thigh, hip and arm by Officer Frank Nellis, 27, who has been on the city police force since March 1998. Davis was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition. He was shot as he paced on a red metal awning over the front of a house in the 1500 block of N. Lakewood Ave. "My speculation is he was trying to decide whether he could jump safely," said Maj. Michael J. Andrew, commander of the Eastern District.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Don't turn lunch on days you're scheduled to pitch into a high school reunion. Be a tad wiser about the ribbing you get from teammates. The education of Gavin Floyd is progressing nicely, as the biggest bonus baby in the history of the Philadelphia Phillies adjusts to pitching to men instead of boys. Floyd's potential netted a club-record signing bonus of $4.2 million last summer, but his craft requires a wealth of knowledge bought on time. "So many of the guys just know more than I do," Floyd said.
