AMID THE BAD news and uncertainty, it's easy to overlook signs of a fundamental change in downtown development: For the first time in decades, a flurry of construction activity is taking place north of Baltimore Street, along the Calvert Street corridor. Most encouraging is the mix of intended uses. Mercy Hospital's $110 million expansion plan includes a new seven-story outpatient center and an 800-car garage to be built on currently vacant lots. But while those additions will take five years to complete, several other projects are already under way in the vicinity: The Munsey Building, near the Court House complex at Fayette Street, is being converted into 150 apartments.

We were saddened to read that Mercy Hospital will no longer allow Kathy Slone to continue her midwifery practice at their hospital ("Mercy to sever ties with midwife group," Oct. 11). We have three beautiful daughters, and our youngest two were delivered by Kathy and her staff. What extraordinary compassion, professionalism and intuition midwives bring to the birthing process. They practice what women have passed down since time began. Midwives focus on bringing a baby into the world as naturally as possible, relying on women's strength and the support of their families.

A man was found burning early this morning in the small public park across the street from Mercy Hospital in downtown Baltimore, fire officials said. The man, who authorities have yet to identify and believe was homeless, was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of the fire was under investigation, and the cause of death will not be known until an autopsy is completed, according to James Gardner, a spokesman for the city Fire Department. Two hospital workers initially attempted to put out the fire at Preston Gardens park with a fire extinguisher, Gardner said.

A monthly fee charged to Maryland parolees often grows to a burdensome debt that hinders their attempts to build a life after prison and runs counter to the mission of the parole program, according to a study that will be released this week. More than 80 percent of parolees do not pay the state parole supervision fee on time and some consider committing crimes to pay the fee, which amounts to an average of $750, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School.

Millions of women may suffer from incontinence, which can interfere with their everyday lives. But many are too embarrassed to report their symptoms or think that nothing can be done to ameliorate the condition, says Dr. Warren T. Oberle, a urologist with the Urology Specialists of Maryland at Mercy Hospital. Incontinence, however, is treatable in the majority of cases. How is incontinence defined? Incontinence is unwanted leakage of urine. There are two types: One is called urgency incontinence and occurs when the bladder squeezes in, and the woman doesn't make it to the bathroom on time.

I covered the story when Ben Roethlisberger was injured in a motorcycle crash. His football career and perhaps his long-term health seemed in serious jeopardy. And so, outside Mercy Hospital, on a street overlooking the Monongahela, a small gathering did what comes naturally to Steelers fans. They tailgated, cooking hot dogs on a grill. A few fans calmly held vigil into the night. I remember looking at the lighter fluid and the bottle of French's mustard and thinking this was the most surreal thing I'd ever experienced.

Baltimore's Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP) will consider granting landmark status today to a row of historic downtown homes slated for demolition by Mercy Medical Center. Preservationists are trying to prevent the hospital from razing the 1820s-era houses in the 300 block of St. Paul Place, some of the oldest downtown, for a planned $292 million expansion. City housing officials gave Mercy a demolition permit Friday, and Baltimore Heritage, a preservation organization, immediately appealed, arguing that a law paving the way for Mercy to quickly get the permit passed the City Council improperly.

An amendment quietly added and approved by the City Council at the request of Mercy Medical Center strips all protections from a row of downtown historic houses that the hospital has long wanted to demolish. Baltimore's preservation board was not aware that City Councilman Keiffer J. Mitchell Jr. changed the bill, and the public was not given an opportunity to comment before the council passed the measure and Mayor Martin O'Malley signed it into law this month. Irate, preservationists are calling the move an end run against open government and demanding that the city restore the protected status of the buildings, which are owned by the hospital and are some of the oldest left downtown.

The players went to class, lifted weights and were scheduled to work out later in the day. On Tuesday, police arrested Brandon Baynes, 18, of Penn Hills, Pa., on five counts of criminal attempted homicide. William Holmes, 18, also of Penn Hills, turned himself in yesterday, police said.
