Joe Rankin wasn't motivated. He wasn't going to school regularly and when he was there, he was acting out. He was dealing with an unsettled home situation all while regularly moving to different shelters and hotels. He was lost.

THE PROBLEM -- The cornice near the roof of an abandoned rowhouse was loose and threatening to fall off. THE BACKSTORY -- Nora Giles says she couldn't walk on her own street. For three decades, she has lived on Rankin Place in the Poppleton community of West Baltimore. A rowhouse on the end of the three-house group, 1228 Rankin, has sat empty for about 15 years, said Giles and her brother, James Smith. The previous owner took care of it, Giles said. But after he died, people began dumping trash in the backyard and drug dealers used it to hide their stash.
