Baltimore is filled with many unassuming neighborhoods - ones that are rarely mentioned in the news, but that decade after decade offer an affordable, stable way of life. Ramblewood is one of those neighborhoods. Situated between Loch Raven Boulevard and The Alameda, just south of Northern Parkway, Ramblewood has well-maintained rowhouses in a location close to shopping, major colleges, a golf course, an ice rink, private schools, the historic Senator Theatre and ball fields. "Basically, it's a small area on the map, but I think the location and quality of housing is attractive to people," said John Meninger, with First Home Selling Assistance, a real estate brokerage on Harford Road.

Justin Myers stepped out of Penn Station in Baltimore on Wednesday evening to find two groups of protesters chanting, waving flags and blocking traffic. Hundreds of pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian protesters were out to support their respective sides in a decades-long contest that has grown increasingly violent in recent months. As he waited for a cab to take him to visit his parents, Myers, 36, of Washington, D.C., looked out on the scene. "With the news, I guess I'm not completely surprised," he said.

Six people, including a toddler, were taken to area hospitals yesterday morning after firefighters removed them from a house in North Baltimore that was filled with carbon monoxide gas leaking from a malfunctioning water heater and furnace. Firefighters were called to the house in the 2000 block of Ramblewood Road in the city's Ramblewood neighborhood about 9:30 a.m., said department spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright. Someone inside the house used a cell phone to call 911, he said. The victims, who ranged in age from 33 years to 17 months, were expected to survive, even though they had high levels of carbon monoxide in their blood systems at the time of their rescue, Cartwright said.

For years, traffic in the 1190 block of Ramblewood Drive in Cape St. Claire was two-way, with a steep hill that limited visibility.After a minor head-on collision in 1994 at the crest of the hill and complaints from neighbors, the block was made one-way northbound.Now, the one-block stretch between Sea Green and Chestnut Tree drives may be changed to one-way southbound because of several complaints about the inconvenience of having to circle the block to leave the community."I don't want to hear that garbage," said Phyllis Gordon, a 22-year resident of Ramblewood Drive who opposes the change.

A 17-year-old was gunned down last night on a street in the Ramblewood community in Northeast Baltimore after securing his 2-year-old nephew in the back seat of his car, city police said.

The child was not injured and was in the care of his mother, who lives near the scene of the shooting, according to police. Police knew of no motive for the attack and had made no arrest. The victim was shot several times in the upper body about 6:30 p.m. as he stood near the driver's door of the 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis, parked in the 1200 block of Ramblewood Road, said Agent Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

Jacqueline Blanton says her son's life revolved around basketball - at Baltimore's Northern High, where he made the varsity team as a freshman last year, and after school on a makeshift court near his home. But gunfire Saturday night ended any dream that 15-year-old Derrick A. Blanton had about basketball. He died at Maryland Shock Trauma Center shortly after he and two others were shot on the neighborhood court, in an alley where they often played under the streetlights. "He loved basketball," his mother said last night, distraught, barely able to utter the words.

Ramblewood in Darlington has hosted a broad variety of events over the years, ranging from marching band camps to nudist conventions. The latest booking, however, may be the most unusual yet for the secluded 200-acre facility near the Conowingo Dam. This one, scheduled for Oct. 22, is a 5K race in which faux-zombies chase the participants over and around a dozen obstacles. And the inaugural event is being organized by a local company, Reed Street Productions LLC, started specifically to put on this race.

Today's word is polyamory. Don't go to the dictionary, because even with three full pages of "poly" words, from polygraph to polyunsaturated, polyamory isn't there. But if the group that met for a conference this past weekend in the woods of Harford County has anything to say about it - and they certainly seem to - it might someday be: Polyamory - (noun) the practice of having more than one loving, intimate relationship at the same time, with the full knowledge and consent of all partners involved.
