Nearly 30 years ago, Maryland General Hospital was poised to move from Baltimore to Cockeysville - until then-Mayor William Donald Schaefer found out and challenged the plan that he feared would leave city residents without adequate options for health care. Next week, hospital leaders will join new Baltimore Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake to open a $57 million expansion - the largest and most expensive change since Maryland General shifted course to stay in the city and became part of the University of Maryland Medical System in 1999.

In the summer of 2004, I was so excited about moving back to my beloved Baltimore. I had been living in the suburbs of Philadelphia for more than 23 years. I have a professional background in community economic development and was eager to apply my skills here in Baltimore. When I arrived, I was not prepared for the devastation that I encountered. The physical deterioration was compelling, but the biggest disappointment was the apathy of the citizens. The violence in this city is overwhelming, and the citizens seem to be numb.
