A key City Council leader says Baltimore should find another way to crack down on problem liquor outlets rather than force about 100 of the longtime neighborhood stores out of business through a zoning overhaul, as proposed by the administration. Council Vice President Edward Reisinger said a blanket policy is unfair to upstanding store owners and the city should instead use other tools to fine and if necessary shut down liquor stores and taverns that break the law. Reisinger, who is leading the council's review of a proposed new zoning code in Baltimore, said he sees the approach as a middle ground between affected store owners who worry the city's decision will cause them financial ruin and community activists who see the stores as magnets for crime.

Driven by a surge of opposition from people who live in Southwest Baltimore, several city leaders have withdrawn support for a major CSX Transportation rail facility proposed for the area. Until recently, the project moved smoothly through early planning stages, after Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake invited CSX to locate the facility - viewed as critical for the Port of Baltimore - in the city. City Councilman Edward Reisinger, who represents the Morrell Park neighborhood where the facility is proposed to go, said his position "evolved" after CSX officials showed what he characterized as a lack of respect for the community by failing to answer questions or address concerns.

Barbs are flying in the 10th District City Council race where three candidates are criticizing incumbent Edward L. Reisinger's relationship with area business owners. "The incumbent claims to be there for the people," said Terry F. Hickey, one of the Democrats campaigning for the South Baltimore seat in the Sept. 11 primary election. "What I see him doing is creating a rift and slowing the process of real conversation between community and developers. He obviously has close ties to developers, builders and fund raising companies."

A controversial City Council proposal that would prohibit shipping hazardous materials through Baltimore was stripped off the city's calendar days before this week's scheduled hearing, an unusual move that prompted an outcry from supporters. Councilman Kenneth N. Harris Sr., who introduced the measure in February, blamed the decision to cancel Wednesday's hearing on last-minute lobbying by transportation and chemical companies opposed to regulation. Others faulted a procedural mix-up. The proposal, which could still be considered by the council this year, comes four years after a CSX freight train carrying hazardous chemicals partially derailed in the Howard Street Tunnel, igniting a fire that tied up downtown for days.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's pick of a Californian to head Baltimore's Police Department prompted questions Monday from City Council members and other city leaders who had been hoping the new commissioner would come from the department's ranks. "You have one guy who was a Baltimore City kid, who struggled through the ranks of the Police Department. … It seemed like he was almost a shoo-in," said Councilman Nick Mosby. Council members were surprised Monday when the administration began putting out the word that Anthony Batts, 52, who had previously led departments in Long Beach and Oakland, would assume the top post in Baltimore.

Only a handful of Baltimore residents appeared Wednesday at the first of four City Council hearings to discuss the mayor's redistricting plans, which could change who represents them. Some residents who testified before the council complained that communities with similar issues would be split, but they applauded other changes that could reunite neighborhoods that had been splintered among various districts. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake proposed the plan at the end of January.

The four members of Girl Scout Troop 913 in Anne Arundel County have washed cars and appealed to local businesses to raise money. They've baked cookies and, of course, sold them. And now the efforts of the girls - all high school juniors - have culminated in the groundbreaking of a new building for a Crownsville drug treatment center. Over the past four years, the troop has worked to raise close to $100,000 in funding and in-kind donations to construct a thrift store and job training center on the grounds of the Chrysalis House, a drug treatment center for women.
