Still sharp at age 86, Mae Smith sits in the living room of her two-bedroom, one-story bungalow and listens to the construction crews.She smiles. It is too little, too late, she says, but it is something.For the first time in more than three decades, Hawkins Point Road -- her connection to the rest of Baltimore for the 81 years she has lived here -- is being repaved.The road, a rough patchwork that shows the scars of decades of weather and industrial traffic, is a symbol of the neglected neighborhood in the southernmost tip of the city that is home to little besides a Coast Guard yard, trucking firms, dumps and stray cats.

Delaware: Arrest Md. woman charged with embezzlement A Maryland woman has surrendered to Newport, Del., police to face charges of embezzling more than $100,000 from the town that employed her as an administrative assistant and bookkeeper. Cynthia Reynolds, 48, of Elkton turned herself in Friday, said Newport police Chief Michael Capriglione. The thefts from the town began in 2004 and continued through 2007, totaling more than $128,000, according to police. The thefts were discovered in late March when a state official noticed there had been no contributions from Newport into the state pension plan for several months, police said.

It seems like such a simple concept: Huge vehicles, each weighing more than a ton, must yield to flesh-and-blood human creatures in a modest zone provided for their passage. It's a concept grasped widely in California and many overseas countries, but seemingly foreign to the denizens of the Free (to Mow Down Others) State. That's the report from the many readers who responded to my column two weeks ago about driver misbehavior at a particular crosswalk on O'Donnell Street in Canton. From all parts of the Baltimore area they wrote in to say that the motorists at their neighborhood crosswalks were equally disdainful of human life and Maryland law. Christine Callahan wrote that she has lived in Canada, Europe and various U.S. states.

Residents demand safer intersection St. Margarets residents have a warning for motorists looking to turn from Pleasant Plains Road onto St. Margarets Road. Don't forget to look left last. Less than 200 feet to the left on St. Margarets Road is a blind curve that one man calls "Kamikaze Corner." A 6-foot-high fence at the arc of the curve and trees impede the view. The recommended speed limit is 20 mph, but residents say drivers rarely adhere to it. Cars, trucks and 18-wheelers often whip around the curve on the two-lane road at twice that speed, they say. No one has been killed trying to pull onto St. Margarets Road.

A Baltimore County judge ruled yesterday that a Miller Island man owns the waterfront property near his home, despite claims that a county deed had long reserved the land for public access to the water.Circuit Judge Joseph F. Murphy Jr.'s swift decision favoring Kennard Broglie's right to bar the public from his land has, for the moment, settled a heated controversy among neighbors on this peninsula in the eastern end of the county.The dispute arose when Rose Sapperstein, a 91-year-old Baltimore woman who owned a dozen small tracts of land along the water's edge on Miller Island, began selling the property to residents.
