A new merry-go-round - possibly with Maryland-themed figures such as a blue crab and Baltimore oriole - could be brought in to replace the antique carousel that for a generation entertained children visiting Baltimore's Inner Harbor but was ordered out this year. Baltimore Development Corp.said Friday that it has received two responses to its request for family-friendly proposals at the site, between the Maryland Science Center and Rash Field.M.J. "Jay" Brodie, president of the BDC, said his agency did not specify that it should be a carousel, but both companies proposed one. "It's an attractive proposition to have a new carousel there," said Brodie, who hopes to have it running next spring.

The indignities are appallIng. Horses that had their tails set afire. A rooster whose leg was kicked out from under it and broken off. A zebra decapitated without provocation. It can be dangerous for the menagerie at the Inner Harbor carousel. Vandals seem to be drawn to it as strongly as children. But each spring, the carved wooden animals resume their usual rounds between Rash Field and the Maryland Science Center. Today will mark the start of the 22nd season - if owner Richard Knight can get his beloved old merry-go-round ready.

Vandals stole the head of a zebra from Richard Knight's Inner Harbor carousel Sunday night, the owner reported yesterday."This is just senseless," Mr. Knight said after he discovered that someone had mutilated the zebra, one of four originals on the 83-year-old carousel.He is offering a $1,000 reward for the return of the animal's head and the arrest and conviction of the people responsible.He said he closed the carousel at 7 p.m. Sunday, five hours earlier than usual, and found the damage when he returned yesterday.

Maybe the 106 year-old carousel that Richard Knight struggles to keep in place in the Inner Harbor ("City orders historic carousel removed from the Inner Harbor," Jan. 19) is just in the wrong place. Yet again, the city - hand-in-glove as usual with Baltimore Development Corporation and big business - has proved unimaginative and insensitive. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blakeis just coming off the failure of her own "merry-go-round" - the costly, wasteful, poorly-run, appallingly destructive Baltimore Grand Prix - and now her minions can't find a way to assist and promote a beautiful antique carousel?

Nearly a year after the Inner Harbor's historic carousel was ordered to move over unpaid bills, the city has struck a deal with a new merry-go-round operator. Charm City Carousel Entertainment LLC, of Stevensville, will bring a new carousel to the city's downtown waterfront in the spring, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said Thursday. "Baltimore's Inner Harbor draws families from all over the country and the world to experience everything our unique waterfront has to offer," the mayor said in a statement.
