Plans to renovate Baltimore's west side gained a critical financial boost yesterday when some of the city's wealthiest business leaders -- including Baltimore Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos -- unveiled a new nonprofit agency to guide the $350 million downtown project. Members of West Side Renaissance Inc. also hired Maryland Office of Planning Director Ronald M. Kreitner to lead the new organization, intended to breath new life into the sagging shopping district over the next seven years.

The organizers of last year's Baltimore Grand Prix made their final payment on their overdue city tax bill this week, the state comptroller's office said Thursday. The payment comes as the city prepares for this year's three-day open-wheel racing festival from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2, which is being organized by a new group of local investors and racing promoters. Baltimore Racing Development put on the inaugural IndyCar racing festival over Labor Day weekend last year. City officials expressed confidence in the racing group in the lead-up to the race, but soon afterward acknowledged that the group had fallen behind in hundreds of thousands of dollars of payments to the city and state.

With the Columbia Council scheduled to debate tonight whether to approve a new golf course, the question is whose report to believe.During the past week, the nine-member council has been presented with a flurry of reports, most from citizen groups for and against the proposed 18-hole Fairway Hills Golf Course.The reports -- at least four of them -- either support or attack the Columbia Association's projections that within four years 50,000 rounds would be played at the course annually, and that by its ninth year the course would generate a profit.

WASHINGTON -- If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Bil Clinton and his middle-road Democratic colleagues who pulled their party to the center this year should feel highly flattered by the latest development in the opposition party.The formation of a new Republican Majority Coalition by a notable group of GOP moderates and fiscal conservatives to rescue the GOP from religious-right excesses is much like the creation by Clinton and others of the Democratic Leadership Council to counter the excesses of New Deal liberalism.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blakesays the new organizers she has selected for September's Baltimore Grand Prix - including a member of the legendary Andretti family - "have what it takes to move forward and make this world-class sporting event successful for Baltimore. " Isn't that what she said about the last group of people she brought in to save the race? That the lead promoter, Dale Dillon, was a race-savior who would make sure everything went smoothly this year? (Unless, as it happened, he stopped talking to his Baltimore-based partners and dropped off the face of the Earth?

Does Baltimore need another group of businessmen to examine the city's business climate? Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke apparently believes the current organizations are not doing the job. He appointed a 40-member group -- called the Development Incentives Task Force -- to examine what programs are needed to retain and attract business and improve the city's general business conditions. This group may be just what is needed at this time.These are unhappy times for city companies. It may be a result of the nation's weak economy, but a sense of malaise permeates the city.

There's no other way to describe it: The Butta commission was massacred by the 1993 General Assembly. Out of 42 bills submitted to streamline and economize government, virtually lTC everything of substance was rejected. So much for the concern of senators and delegates for making state government more efficient and less costly to taxpayers.Lawmakers were in no mood to rock the boat. Public employee unions effectively opposed the bills. So did other affected interest groups. Since there was no countervailing public clamor for government overhaul, the Butta bills never had a chance.

Carroll County's volunteer emergency workers approved yesterday a proposal designed to strengthen their political power by uniting three groups representing firefighters, fire chiefs and paramedics. The move to combine the organization representing the county's 14 fire chiefs and one for paramedics with the Carroll County Volunteer Firemen's Association was approved by a 51-13 vote at the association's 80th annual convention in Union Bridge. After a brief discussion in which John Korman, a Hampstead delegate and former association president, argued unsuccessfully that the vote ran against bylaws, outgoing association President C. Douglas Bostian called for a vote by secret ballot.
