The Internet posting is ominous: An insulin-dependent diabetic in his 70s has wandered away from family members amid the miseries of the New Orleans convention center and hasn't been heard from since Sunday. Days after posting that message, Bryant Woods of Odenton was still waiting for word of his father, Alphonse Woods Sr., who had evacuated from his home near the French Quarter to seek shelter from Hurricane Katrina. The younger Woods is among dozens of people in Maryland who have turned to the Internet to try to re-establish contact with friends or family on the Gulf Coast, where phone service is out in many areas.

Lusk & Son of Silver Spring. "It doesn't look all that encouraging, but the figures you're seeing are deals that were put together in October or November," said Carol Stewart, a Lusk vice president based in the company's Timonium office.

New data for the Silver Spring consulting firm Rufus S. Lusk & Son, Inc. confirm what everyone already knows -- that the real estate market in Howard and Carroll counties was depressed in December.Home sales in Howard fell 35 percent, compared with December 1989, to 252 homes, wrapping up a year in which Howard County home sales fell 17 percent, Lusk said. The median price of a single-family detached home or town house in Howard rose 4 percent to $215,100 for the year.A Lusk official said, however, that the market in Carroll and Howard counties is probably healthier than the statistics suggest.

Home sales in the Baltimore metropolitan area during the first three months of the year declined 29 percent from the same quarter of 1990, according to a survey by Rufus S. Lusk & Son Inc., but more recent figures gave at least a glimmer of hope that the slump may be bottoming out.The first-quarter drop recorded by Lusk represents an acceleration of the 17 percent year-to-year drop in the fourth quarter of last year. The January-March declines hit heavily in all parts of the region, with drops ranging from 23 percent in Anne Arundel County to 38 percent in the severely depressed Howard County housing market.
