In the early 1980s, Gilbert Renaut built a home in Murray Hill, a neighborhood within walking distance of Spa Creek and downtown Annapolis. The one-time federal litigator had an affinity for architectural history and wanted to prove he could build a Colonial reproduction house on a middle-class budget. After that project led to a stint on the Annapolis Historic Preservation Committee, he also ended up proving he had a passion for local politics. He chaired the Murray Hill Centennial in 1990, served as president of the Murray Hill Residents Association and then ran the Ward One Residents Association.

The weekend killing of a homeless man in an affluent neighborhood in downtown Annapolis has renewed fears of crime in a city still shaken from a killing in the historic district three weeks ago. The victims and the means of death were different, but both crimes occurred on quiet, dead-end streets in wealthy areas where violent crime mostly is relegated to television. For residents of Murray Hill - a downtown neighborhood with wide yards and large homes - that sense of security was shattered Saturday when a Stewart Avenue resident picking up his newspaper around 7:30 a.m. discovered a badly beaten man lying semiconscious near his yard.

As the Annapolis Board of Appeals continues its hearings tonight on the proposed redevelopment of the former downtown hospital site, a group of vocal residents opposed to the Acton's Landing project will continue to make their case for a scaled-down version. Acton's Landing Area Residents' Monitor, a loosely organized but well-funded group of nearby residents known as ALARM, is expected to take center stage tonight as its attorney calls witnesses and presents an alternative plan for the 4 1/2 -acre site.

IT'S THAT time of year again when young scholars publicly complain -- and secretly rejoice -- about returning to school.The structure of school days, the opportunity to make new friends, learn new things and make mistakes away from the scrutiny of parents frightens and beckons.School lunches may be acceptable to some, although saying so is an unacceptable breach of the unspoken student code.Murray Hill Middle School will begin its second year this month.Returning staff and students are veterans, who will blend with the year's new crop of students.
