Eight-year-old Terrance Carter has learned to drop to the floor and crawl away from the windows of his East Baltimore rowhouse when he hears gunshots. It's a simple matter of survival in the drug-infested neighborhood of East Madison Street near Curley Street and Linwood Avenue, said his mother, Nadine Carter. "My little boy is scared," she said yesterday. Carter and her son live in the 2900 block of E. Madison St., right across the street from where Clarissa Ward, 17, was shot in the head by a gunman early Friday during an apparent robbery attempt.

The land is free and at the end of a road with no houses, and Department of Public Works officials thought they had found the perfect spot for a western Howard County salt barn. But some residents think the Lisbon site is a terrible choice. The road is narrow, a stream runs nearby and the area occasionally floods, they say. One man -- upset that folks found out about the salt barn only when workers starting building it recently -- is waging war. Mike Smith of Lisbon called every county official who has anything to do with the project or could put a halt to the proceedings, and he brought in the Maryland Department of the Environment to look at alleged violations.

I HAVE BEEN HAVING a little trouble this week stopping at traffic lights and dialing the telephone. These are symptoms of a guy who is trying to re-enter the hurly-burly world of work after spending two weeks in the lazing-around world of vacation. I have no idea how widespread these re-entry problems are, but I do know a lot of people go on vacation during August and grumble when they return to work.While driving to work on my first day back from vacation, I stopped for a red light on Madison Street.

CHICAGO -- Begin at the green of Grant Park, where Lake Michigan shimmers, and drive about two miles west along Madison Street.Before you arrive at the United Center, where the Democrats will convene Monday, you drive past the gracious old commercial buildings in the Loop, past the shiny new towers near the Chicago River. You cover blocks that were leveled by the urban renewal programs of the '60s and by the fires that burned after the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.Within sight of the center, you find some of Chicago's infamous public housing.

One of the more reassuring sounds of my youth was that of a hickory night stick tapping the pavement.Some 40 years ago, the city seemed more quiet. And about once an hour came that sound made by Officer Joe as he tapped the cement sidewalk with his nightstick as he walked his beat. Clunk. Clunk. Clunk.Baltimore was then a city of foot patrols, corner police call boxes, gas lamp lighters and neighbors who saw and heard everything.The sound the walking cop made seemed to bounce all over the neighborhood on a hot and humid July night.
