When Toni Coleman walked into Career Connections in Baltimore's Park Heights a month ago, she saw the rows of computers and training classrooms she'd expected of a new employment center. But Coleman, who's struggled for about a year to find work, said she hadn't expected the personal attention that helped her not only polish an outdated resume and ferret out job possibilities but regain some confidence.

WHEN NEW owners purchased the Samester Apartments in Northwest Baltimore in 1998, they could have wiped away many of the Art Deco touches that make the building so unusual. Instead, after consulting with their architects, the owners restored details that help distinguish the 1939 apartment complex from many others up and down Park Heights Avenue, such as bull-nose columns and glass-block windows. Today, it stands as the most fully developed (and restored) Art Deco-style garden apartment complex in Baltimore.

After a years-long search for new headquarters, the Shoshana S. Cardin School, Baltimore's only independent Jewish high school, has decided to stay put and construct new buildings on Park Heights Avenue next to the synagogue where it has been renting space since it opened in 2003. "I'm thrilled, I think it's a win-win for us and for the synagogue," said Barbie Prince, head of the school, where 56 students now take classes in space leased from Temple Oheb Shalom. The first phase of the plan would allow the school to accommodate 100 to 120 students, the second phase up to 250, she said.
