They seek more than $22 million in damages for lost property value and emotional distress.

The Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum today looks onto a tree stump and a grassy lot, but that view could soon change with the construction of two large, orange-accented apartment buildings. It's the first phase of a long-awaited redevelopment of the Poppleton area. The go-ahead last week from the city's urban design and architecture review panel is one of the first steps forward since ambitious plans to overhaul a 13.8-acre portion of the neighborhood were announced almost a decade ago. Just west of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, the $800 million, 10-year redevelopment of Poppleton is supposed to build on the expansion of the University of Maryland's BioPark and ultimately create more than 1,000 residential units, a new charter school, shopping and parks in a neighborhood once riddled with crime and drug activity.

It was Monday morning in Camp Hill, Pa., and one of the worst snowstorms in recent history was threatening to leave College of Notre Dame point guard Amanda Poppleton marooned at her home near Harrisburg. Poppleton, a 5-foot-6 senior, is one of the most gifted basketball players in Division III, and she had to somehow get back to Baltimore the next morning for a scheduled trip that day to Lancaster Bible for a 7 p.m. game. The Gators would be lost without the leadership of a player who soared off the charts Jan. 15 against Hood, when she became the first D-III women's player this season to record a quadruple double (14 points, 12 assists, 12 steals and 10 rebounds)

James Ginyard gazed down at the corner where spray-painted rest-in-peace graffiti marks the lives of guys named Bangum and Boo, Nose and Green. "I don't like this neighborhood," the 68-year-old said, standing outside the rowhouse he rents in the 300 block of N. Carrollton Ave. "If I got to go, I got to go."

Disruptions to two underground electrical cables have left hundreds of residents in Fells Point and Canton without power or air conditioning as Baltimore experiences one of the hottest stretches of the summer and city officials warn of the potential for heat-related illnesses. On Tuesday morning, a blown fuse on an electrical line in the area of Poppleton and Hollins Market disrupted power to hundreds more. That outage has been fixed. In Fells Point, power was restored for about 380 customers by 1 p.m. Tuesday, though a separate problem — a blown overhead transformer — briefly knocked out power to 900 customers in the neighborhood again Tuesday evening, said Rachael Lighty, a Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman.

Local politicians said the park would be a major source of job growth for the region and help revitalize the community, blighted at times by drugs and crime.
