Shoppers who lined up at Sears on Thanksgiving and braved Walmart before dawn on Black Friday might want a change of pace, city officials are hoping. With the Miracle on Main Streets campaign, the city hopes to encourage holiday shopping in Baltimore's historic neighborhoods, at small shops lining the business districts. The campaign's motto: "Do it all without the mall. " Participating neighborhoods, all part of the city's Main Streets program, include Belair-Edison, Brooklyn, East Monument Street, Federal Hill, Fell's Point, Hamilton-Lauraville, Highlandtown, Pennsylvania Avenue, Pigtown and Waverly.

And what shall we say now that the monster has died? His estranged sons Mark and Nate told the world just a few days ago that their 84-year old father, Fred Phelps, was in the care of a hospice and "on the edge of death.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was recently in Maryland trying to connive businesses into move to his state ( "O'Malley, Perry spar over jobs with 2016 in background," Sept. 18). The problem is, Texas cannot handle more people. Currently, there are too many people and not enough roads here in Texas, which perhaps explains why the roads are too congested and most days traffic is a nightmare. We are in a severe drought here in Texas. Water levels are plummeting and lakes are drying up. Groundwater levels are dropping.

Reggae music filled the air at Bohager's in Fells Point. Folks in Hawaiian shirts milled around the club's thatched-roof bar, or lined up for autographs and photos with several Baltimore Ravens players at Mac's Reggae Sunsplash 2001. Ravens player Michael McCrary played host at the party for his nonprofit organization, Mac's Miracle Fund. And who knew purple was such a tropical color? Folks sported plenty of Ravens paraphernalia -- and then some. Fans Vicki Williams and Colleen Martin had even painted their toenails purple.

Leave it to Maryland's state legislators to seize on the slightest pretext to play demagogue. They did it last week in the State House when they called a private Colorado company on the carpet for failing to work wonders at the troubled Hickey School for juveniles. How much time did these legislators give the company to perform this miracle? A mere 70 days.Since a constant parade of state officials have failed miserably for decades to improve matters at the Hickey School, it isn't surprising that a private company hired only on Sept.

Some people looking at the Northeast Baltimore church destroyed in a four-alarm fire Friday might see empty windows, blackened bricks, a sawed-off steeple and ceiling open to the sky. The Rev. Cecil Conteen Gray sees a miracle. "It should have fallen. It should have toppled," Gray said Sunday of the Northwood-Appold United Methodist Church's wooden steeple, which towered over the Cold Spring Lane and Loch Raven Boulevard corner for more than 60 years. The steeple, which withstood the flames Friday, was eventually taken down Saturday, its metal cross saved for a new building.

COLLEGE PARK - As different as the gym rat and blue-chip star seemed on the surface, Mark Turgeon and Danny Manning had a lot in common when they became teammates and best friends playing for Larry Brown at Kansas in the 1980s. "They've got the same values, they were great teammates, they were really cerebral, both grew up with families that were involved in the game," Brown recalled in a telephone interview Saturday. "The biggest difference is that one guy is 5-[foot-]10 and the other guy is 6-10.

"The best place to be in the entire world is Hampden on the first night of lights," said Lou Catelli, who wore red corduroy shorts to pedal an adult-size tricycle up and down the street.

Bouncy music comes though a stereo's speakers. A trainer encourages a client on a treadmill. A large banner on the wall reads, "Believe In Miracles!" Gina Gilligan-Della said she has seen more than her share of those. Gilligan-Della, 48, is the founding president of TheraFit Gym, a fitness center designed to serve individuals with severe physical disabilities from spinal-cord injury to the after-effects of stroke.
