Climb the steps and walk past the concrete columns that grace many Baltimore police stations and you'll encounter shuttered glass doors, blocked off by plywood, brown paper or the backs of file cabinets.

That will change in the Northwestern District on Reisterstown Road this week.

Henson Neighborhood Association, which represents more than 1,000 homes, business and churches and is over 50 years old, recently unanimously opposed the Baltimore City Council's curfew bill ( "Council approves tough new curfew for city youth," May 12).
