LEEDS, England - They gathered just down the road from Shahzad Tanweer's house yesterday, the spiritual and political leaders of the downtrodden little community of Beeston, to assure residents that there are no bombers living among them. "We've never come across any radical element whatsoever," said Hanif Malik, manager of a community center, echoing what the Muslim councilman, the Anglican bishop, a Methodist minister and others had to say. They were talking almost in sight of Tanweer's house, which is still taped off from Tuesday's police raid to determine why he might have blown himself up last Thursday in London's Aldgate Road subway station.

With its primary focus on green and sustainable living, this development in Baltimore's Woodberry neighborhood juxtaposes leading-edge design with Clipper Mill's heritage as a place where the Jones Falls provided waterpower for the operation of grist mills, foundries and textile mills.

The decision to move back to the small town of Trenton near Upperco would soon set her and domestic partner, Tim Hopkins, on a life-altering adventure into the realm of "green" construction coupled with elegant country style. "Our primary goal was to build a one-story, 2,300-square-foot home that didn't intrude on the historic look and feel of the area," said Hopkins, 55 and co-owner of an information consulting firm.

Standing among pine trees, green with new growth, Baltimore County officials lauded the developer of Spencer's Crossing in Timonium yesterday for saving the environment and homeowners' wallets. The 10-home development is the state's first residential project to achieve gold status for leadership in energy and environmental design. Stuart D. Kaplow, spokesman for the U.S. Green Building Council, likened LEED ratings to the nutrition label on the side of a box of crackers. "The more energy efficient a building is, the less energy and water it uses and the kinder it is to natural resources," he said.
