Once again the West Baltimore catering facility, the Palladium, is scheduled to be auctioned by its lender, John Hanson Savings Bank.But Robert B. Scarlett, the attorney representing the Palladium's owner, said he was hopeful that the facility will not be auctioned as scheduled next month. In fact, he said negotiations are under way to sell the hall to a private group and perhaps end the two year battle to keep it off the auction block."We are trying to refinance in which Butler will remain involved," Scarlett said.

James DuSel makes photographs of parts of architecture, sometimes of well known buildings like the Baltimore Museum of Art and sometimes in obscure places like the arches under a bridge or an expressway. They're very grabby, these pictures, in a way that yet another picture of a familiar facade wouldn't be.Because he's showing aspects that most people wouldn't have noticed, they stop the viewer and make him look again -- and probably make him look again at the building the next time he sees it.A group of DuSel's palladium prints (printed on paper that has been coated with a palladium emulsion)

HIDDENITE, N.C. - Stop the world and let Jamie Hill off. The Alexander County, N.C., man who's famous for finding giant emeralds on his property now says that he has found gold and other valuable metals in the rock he mines for the gems. Hill, who found two large emeralds at his mine in January and an 88-carat crystal in 1998, says the rock where the gems hide contains gold, platinum and palladium. He hopes it can bring fortune to this rural county of farms and small furniture factories.
