ONE OF THE readers of this column lived under the Ostend Street overpass, near the stadium where the Ravens play. His name was Raymond James Sakievich. Everyone called him Ray, and at times - when he found himself being arrested, for example - he called himself Ray Armenger. This particular Ray was homeless for half of his 46 years. His life ended on or about Feb. 11. Someone strangled him under the bridge. His killer is still at large. One day this winter, in a sober moment, Sakievich wrote a letter spelling out the positive and negative aspects of the homeless life, as if something, or someone, had prompted self-examination.

Since 1896, the brick and stone police station at 28 E. Ostend St. has lent an air of permanence and stability to its South Baltimore neighborhood, an enduring character that newer buildings can't match. That sense of permanence is stronger than ever today, after a $2.3 million restoration and modernization by the South Baltimore Learning Center, a community-based adult literacy organization now located there. For their efforts to keep the ambience and details of the historic police station in their conversion, the learning center directors and their design and construction team have been selected to receive one of 11 Preservation Project Awards that will be presented this year by Baltimore Heritage, a citywide preservation advocacy group.

Before the Pilgrims Laundry was torn down to make way for new houses last summer, developer Mary Zimmerman took her mother inside the old building in Federal Hill one last time. Her mother, Alice, had worked there as a teen-ager during the 1930s. Walking through the empty warehouse-like space, she remembered where the dryers were, where she took her lunch break, but most of all she remembered how hot it was. Now decades later, her daughter is in charge of the site, which is about to become the location of a group of new houses in Federal Hill, one of a handful of new residential projects coming to the popular neighborhood during the next year.

Preseason threats by city officials that they would crack down on large-scale football tailgate parties in neighborhoods outside PSINet Stadium didn't dampen enthusiastic parties before and after the Ravens' home-opening win yesterday. The tailgating went on in the face of pending appeals and permit applications. It went on in places that had already been fined during preseason games. In fact, by game time yesterday, overseers of some southern Baltimore gathering spots said the most they had seen of city zoning inspectors were their cars pulling up and pausing - before riding away.
