Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was discharged from the University of Maryland Medical Center Sunday, where she had been since experiencing chest pains and shortness of breath Saturday night at the Star-Spangled Spectacular concert at Fort McHenry. Doctors performed what the mayor's aides described as "a series of tests to assess her medical condition" before releasing her. She spent less than 24 hours at the hospital and has cancelled her public appearances for Monday. After her release, Rawlings-Blake said she had pushed herself "a bit too hard" amid the celebrations to mark the bicentennial of the Battle of Baltimore and the creation of the Star-Spangled Banner.

Prosecutors secured indictments against about two dozen suspected heroin dealers in the Mondawmin area of Baltimore and worked with police to carry out 11 searches last week and make 19 arrests, the state's attorney's office said. Among those taken into custody was Aaron Ausby, 22, who prosecutors say they suspect was the supplier to three drug dealing networks in West Baltimore. The three groups operated along a stretch of Reisterstown Road and often collaborated with one another, prosecutors say. Ausby was arrested at the end of July during a search where prosecutors recovered about 500 heroin capsules and nine grams of raw heroin, according to the state's attorney's office.

When he was growing up near Mondawmin Mall and the Christmas season rolled around, Andrew Dubose rarely missed a chance to visit the old man in the red suit and white beard who always gave him such a warm holiday greeting. Now 39, married, and the father of three, Dubose drives his children from the family's home in Randallstown so they can sit with the same man in exactly the same spot - Lucas Durant, the longest-running black Santa Claus in Baltimore. "Santa loves you," Durant, 65, tells Dubose's children, Jasmine, 15; Mason, 2; and Drew, 6 months, as he did their father decades ago. "Santa Luke," as he's known, has been Kriss Kringle at Mondawmin Mall for 29 years running.

Homicide detectives were investigating an afternoon shooting that occurred Friday in West Baltimore in a residential area between Mondawmin Mall and Druid Hill Park. The shooting occurred at about 3:45 p.m. in the rear of the 2200 block of Liberty Heights Ave. Homicide detectives were summoned to the scene due to the severity of his injuries, but as of Saturday morning, police said the victim remained in critical condition. Last week, a 47-year-old man was fatally shot in the same neighborhood, a few blocks south in the 2800 block of Parkwood Ave. The Safe Streets anti-violence program had held a peace rally two days later — and was shut down temporarily by the Health Department on Tuesday.

MONDAWMIN is five Metro stops away from downtown, six stops from Owings Mills. Within a one-mile radius of the shopping mall, it's possible to attend school from kindergarten to college. So why are the Mondawmin-area neighborhoods, despite their solid housing stock and leafy gardens, experiencing some of the same uncertainties and blight that are afflicting so many other city areas? A recently released 64-page survey suggests some of the reasons: an aging population; the lack of new investment; apathy.

The Baltimore Health Department suspended its Safe Streets anti-violence program in West Baltimore after a second outreach worker was arrested in less than two weeks. The heralded program, modeled after those in other cities and run by community groups with public funding overseen by the city Health Department, enlists former offenders to help negotiate disputes between gang members and drug dealers before they lead to gun violence. The criminal pasts of the ex-convicts are supposed to give them credibility when brokering the peace.
