As Public Works crews prepared to tackle the problem of a 10-foot-deep sinkhole in downtown Baltimore, the city announced yesterday that Cathedral Street between Monument and Centre streets - near the site of the depression - will be closed to traffic for several weeks. "The best-case scenario would be a few weeks," said Kurt L. Kocher, a spokesman for the city Department of Public Works. "It could be less than a month, or it could be a month. It just depends on the magnitude of the problem."

AROUND THE time when most people were talking about the sun and the rare transit of Venus, I observed that big orange ball casting its spell over East Baltimore. It was a warm evening, a night when out of nowhere, an old friend from Carroll County asked if I could join him for dinner, preferably at a non-yuppie Baltimore place that, in affirming our affection for the city, would make us reminisce about the good times we've enjoyed here. Suddenly his Buick was heading out of town on Monument Street, past Hopkins Hospital, the old State Theatre and the Northeast Market.

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.

RUNNING OUT OF research space, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine will begin construction next week on a $140 million tower that will house more than 400 researchers and administrators and define a new gateway to the East Baltimore medical campus. Hopkins has set Monday as the date for a ceremonial groundbreaking for the building, part of a large investment in research facilities in East Baltimore and the most expensive building constructed for the medical school. Other recent capital investments by Hopkins include the $59 million Bunting-Blaustein Cancer Research Building on Orleans Street and the clinical research areas of the $125 million Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Comprehensive Cancer Center at Orleans and Broadway.
