Percy Smith is against Baltimore's new curfew. Like many of its critics, he's fine with keeping kids off the street late at night; he's just concerned about how it will be implemented. "I'm asking from an economic perspective," he said, "will this be Fells Point or East Baltimore?" He added later that he doesn't want a curfew "just protecting the Inner Harbor. " The Govans man and more than 100 other city residents came to Morgan State University on Monday night to learn about and voice their support of or opposition to the policy, which goes into effect Aug. 8. Residents asked pointed questions to a panel of city officials that included Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts and Councilman Brandon Scott, who sponsored the law. Some worried about how police will engage youths; others asked how parents will be held accountable for allowing their children to roam the city unsupervised.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has declined to fund a proposed East Baltimore job-training program backed by an influential community group, sparking a war of words over whether City Hall is doing enough to help the unemployed. The interfaith coalition Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development says its leaders have a proposal to provide 50 members of the Oliver neighborhood with jobs and want $594,000 in funding over three years from the Rawlings-Blake administration. The program would target ex-offenders and others chronically unemployed.

A key City Council leader says Baltimore should find another way to crack down on problem liquor outlets rather than force about 100 of the longtime neighborhood stores out of business through a zoning overhaul, as proposed by the administration. Council Vice President Edward Reisinger said a blanket policy is unfair to upstanding store owners and the city should instead use other tools to fine and if necessary shut down liquor stores and taverns that break the law. Reisinger, who is leading the council's review of a proposed new zoning code in Baltimore, said he sees the approach as a middle ground between affected store owners who worry the city's decision will cause them financial ruin and community activists who see the stores as magnets for crime.

So many of the old rowhouse neighborhoods of Baltimore have the following characteristics — one block good, next block bad; safe by day, violent by night; earnest homeowners here; apathetic renters there. Walk along enough of the side streets, especially on the east and west sides of town, and those contradictions are obvious. Just look at the two blocks of Preston Street east of Greenmount Avenue, in Johnston Square. In another of the overnight shootings that have marked Baltimore's summer, two men were gunned down there around 2 a.m. Friday; one of them died.
