ST. PAUL ST. The large white letters are a proclamation. The huge green sign on which they are printed swings on a wire across the street. It looks as if it's announcing a circus.There's a parking lot. Here are houses turned into commercial and medical offices. ST. PAUL ST.But not my St. Paul Street. My St. Paul Street had its name imprinted beneath the soft light in the glass globe atop the corner lamppost. It was a street of dreams.The houses were three stories high -- distinctive in that each was a duplicate of the other.

I WAS GROWING more than a little depressed about my view of old Baltimore this week. For starters, two blocks of St. Paul Street not far from my home were bound up in police tape because of a shooting near Lafayette Avenue. Earlier that morning I left my house to find three Northern District police officers emerging from my side yard. They were chasing down a tip that a prowler was afoot in the neighborhood -- this several weeks after the arrest of the neighborhood burglar, apprehended three doors north of my front door.

A stretch of Charles Street that was damaged and closed after a 90-year-old water main broke beneath it and sent torrents of water downhill two weeks ago was reopened Wednesday night, according to Baltimore's Department of Public Works. The stretch reopened - "just in time for holiday travel," the city said - about 8:20 p.m., after being closed between W. North Avenue and W. 21st Street in the city's Charles North neighborhood Nov. 7. All sidewalks, road surfaces and utilities on the street damaged by the break are also fixed, the department said.

SIGHS OF RELIEF certainly seemed appropriate after the decision Tuesday that the Enoch Pratt Free Library may close its St. Paul Street branch. Although -- after eight hours of testimony in Baltimore City Circuit Court -- louder expressions, even by librarians, might have been excused.Judge Joseph H. H. Kaplan was patient. But his ruling was based on what was apparent before the plaintiffs began their long argument. Pratt administrators have the authority to make decisions about buildings, equipment, books and personnel based on their budget.

YOUR INTREPID one may be wrong, but we've always thought that you make a right turn from the right lane and a left turn from the left lane. Correct?So why do motorists who travel in the lane next to the right lane or in the lane next to the left lane on St. Paul Street feel it perfectly legit to turn from those lanes at North Avenue?We realize that it's easier to make a turn when you're farther from the curb, but, fellow motorists, cars do travel in the right and left lanes.Jackie Cummings, who lives in Charles Village and works downtown, brought the matter to our attention.

The problem: "No Stopping" signs restrict parking during morning and evening rush hours for a section of one block of St. Paul Street in Mount Vernon. The back story: This week, Watchdog solves a Mount Vernon mystery, but it turns out the answer was less mysterious than expected. The west side of St. Paul Street used to have "No Stopping" signs that restricted parking during the morning and evening rush. Most of those signs were eventually removed as part of negotiations with the Mount Vernon-Belvedere Association about the location of a new homeless shelter on Fallsway.

Stepping into 2100 St. Paul St. is like stepping back into Victorian Baltimore, redrawn by man with a passion for restoring self-playing organs and exceptionally large clocks. It's a tinkerer's treasure that ticks. Durward R. Center, 55, has spent three decades restoring the house and adding three tower clocks - two visible from 21st Street and one on the St. Paul Street side. The 220-pound clock weights, the size of gallon paint cans, hang in odd places such as in the stairwell from the third floor down to the first.

For Lawrence Peterson, the redevelopment of his Mount Vernon neighborhood was every bit as much of a calling as his 20 years in the U.S. Navy. As friends and neighbors paid tribute to the "Mayor of Mount Vernon" on Sunday evening, they recalled a man so passionate about their area of the city that he would drop in to invite neighbors over or nudge them to clean up their front stoops. The community leader died Friday, two years after he was critically injured in a shooting near the Belvedere Hotel on the first block of East Chase Street, where he lived with his husband, Tom Sabia.

Several steps away from the crumbling edge of East 26th Street in Charles Village, a construction worker slowly unrolled a long yellow measuring tape into a circular hole about the size of a sewer manhole lid. Foot after foot of the tape disappeared as he sought to learn the depth of the hole being bored straight down into the earth by a hulking orange drilling machine anchored not far from St. Paul Street. Another worker at the block-long construction site Tuesday said the hole is the first of many that will be cut into the street as part of a new design to keep East 26th Street and the earth beneath it from spilling down onto the railroad tracks, which run parallel to the street, as they did last week when a century-old retaining wall collapsed amid heavy rain.
