A stretch of Wilkens Avenue known for its solid corridor of red-brick rowhouses that extends for nearly a quarter-mile is in danger of losing its distinction as the city's longest unbroken residential block unless some of its vacant homes are salvaged soon, community members warn. The 2600 block of Wilkens in Southwest Baltimore has been affectionately known as the "Deck of Cards" because it consists of 52 houses with two end storefronts as "jokers." But the 1,180-foot wall of masonry, punctuated with marble steps, would stand gap-toothed if some of its unoccupied buildings were to catch fire or deteriorate to the point of collapse, said Marty Howe, president of the Mill Hill Improvement Association.

The trash-filled lot on South Stockton Street was the most unlikely of places for a little park with a waterfall and goldfish pond.But in a matter of days this summer, the trash, discarded washing machines, rubble and weeds were gone from the lot. Ten teen-agers from Southwest Baltimore's Hollins Market neighborhood cleaned it up and began building the pond, complete with a waterfall.They plan to erect stone steps leading to the pond and to build a brick wall around it. By the end of the summer, they also hope to finish carving a totem pole out of a white oak log.The youths' seven-week summer jobs with the Maryland Conservation Corps brought them to the 100 block of S. Stockton St. -- a decrepit, narrow road just south of Lombard Street where most of the houses are vacant.

By now, the Southwest Baltimore residents of Mill Hill thought they would be rid of the explosions and the filth from the automobile scrap yard in their back yard.But nearly two years after the United Iron and Metal Co. signed a consent order promising to make changes to reduce air and noise pollution in its yard, little has been done, say neighbors and government officials.Occasional explosions from erupting gas tanks still rock houses and rattle windows.Blue air and pieces of "fluff" from shredded automobile upholstery still float into their yards.

LA PLATA - Both the Old Mill and River Hill wrestling teams took the long trek to Charles County yesterday fully expecting to stick around for a while at the Class 4A-3A state dual meet championships hosted by La Plata High. It didn't work out that way. The No. 4 Patriots were hit hard early against Montgomery County's Walt Whitman, never recovering in a 45-33 setback in one semifinal. As for the No. 7 Hawks, their 37-30 loss to Northern of Calvert in the other semifinal was a case of being right there, but not finishing the task.
