BY ALL ACCOUNTS, Lee Hsien Loong, inaugurated last week as Singapore's third prime minister in its 39 years of independence, is up to the job. He holds degrees from Cambridge and Harvard, rose to brigadier general in the tiny island-state's military, and has served the last 14 years as deputy prime minister and, most recently, as finance minister and central bank chief. But no one should doubt for a moment that he ended up atop the small but economically mighty city's political structure because he is the elder son of Singapore's founder, Lee Kuan Yew. Though retired in 1990, the famously stern patriach has lingered at the helm with titles of convenience, first as "senior minister" and now as -- get this -- "minister mentor."

Community group moves to block housing complex Opponents of the Acton's Landing housing complex proposed for the former Anne Arundel Medical Center site in Annapolis' historic district moved yesterday to block the project from going forward. In an appeal filed in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, six members of the neighborhood group ALARM asked the court to reverse the city Board of Appeals' approval of the 114-unit residential complex proposed for the 4.5-acre site by a development group led by Virginia-based Madison Homes Inc. Even if the court does not overturn the May 15 decision, the case will likely delay the start of the project, which is nearly a year behind the developers' original schedule.

An elderly woman hangs from a clothesline tied to the rafters of her attic. A prostitute lies crumpled in her bedroom closet, stabbed to death. A cheating husband, shot through the chest, is sprawled on the floor of the mountain cabin where he had gone to meet his lover. Gruesome scenarios for dollhouses, maybe. But then Frances Glessner Lee was no Barbie. To the contrary, she was a heavyset, dour-looking, middle-aged Chicago heiress - fascinated with forensics and certifiably obsessive when it came to the intricate miniature death scenes she constructed.

The coming of the Chinese New Year in Baltimore was announced this year by a tattered lion dancing in what was once known as Baltimore's Chinatown. The old lion's head - made of papier-mache and now held together by tape - looked much like its surroundings: faded colors, frayed edges with a general appearance of deterioration. "Chinatown isn't what it used to be," explained the lion's owner Arthur Lee after 10 minutes of dancing in front of a small crowd, which consisted mostly of bewildered white parishioners from an Episcopal church.

Neverdon in the shooting death of one of their own.Protesters filled the 98-degree air with chants as they marched in front of Courthouse East, where a jury last week acquitted Mr. Neverdon of the 1993 slaying of Joel J. Lee, a 21-year-old Towson State University student.The Korean marchers -- and the sprinkling of African-Americans and whites who joined them -- disagreed with the jury's verdict.
