JAMES MEARS sits behind the counter of the Independent Variety store these days. On this particularly gorgeous May afternoon, Mears sports his black kufi and matching black buba and peers out at you from behind black-framed spectacles as he chats up the customers who stroll in. He greets them all with a cheery hello and asks about their welfare. A woman who wants a pack of Newport cigarettes agrees that his are the cheapest in the neighborhood. A boy and man come in, and Mears jokes with the lad about always being the one who orders while the older guy pays.

From Rosemont Elementary School's perch at the end of Dukeland Street in West Baltimore, the tallest structure on the urban skyline is the high-rise classroom building at nearby Coppin State College.That seems appropriate. Coppin, in assuming management of Rosemont last fall, has become the first college in Maryland to run an off-campus public school."It's a tremendous risk," said Calvin W. Burnett, the Coppin president who was taking one of his daily walks through the neighborhood last year when he decided to help Rosemont.

As he circled the block yesterday, searching for parking at a West Baltimore elementary school, Lt. Col. Terry W. Virts, a NASA astronaut and featured morning guest, received assistance from unlikely sources. "Some of the [kids'] moms were waving at me, telling me which way to go," said Virts, who was dressed in his blue NASA uniform. "Then the kids, they knew my name as I was pulling up. They were so well behaved. That's pretty impressive." Yesterday, Virts visited Rosemont Elementary School as part of the NASA Explorer School program, which was created to stimulate interest in science, mathematics and technology.

It's been four months since city cops stopped running Police Athletic League Centers and locked the doors to the building that once served the children of Rosemont. Residents of this West Baltimore neighborhood have been protesting that their kids have nowhere to play and hundreds signed petitions to reopen the building and its basketball courts. This month, an ally appeared out of nowhere - Gary D. Maynard, who runs the state's prisons, wants to partner with the people of Rosemont to keep the center open.

Shiretta Henderson can step outside her front door and see the front door of what used to be Rosemont Police Athletic League Center in West Baltimore. Her children, ages 16, 9 and 5, used to head over there and play, do their homework and get an after-school snack. They knew the two police officers assigned there by their first names. The signs are still there, but the doors are locked, permanently, and on Monday the mother of three guarded her front door to make sure her children stayed inside.

Today, Baltimore's Police Athletic League centers will shut down and, in most cases, will be reborn. The police will leave, though they'll stay for one or two more weeks to ease the transition as 16 of 18 centers become one with the city's Department of Recreation and Parks. City officials announced the end back on March 18, but residents fought back at budget hearings and in gyms where city leaders let them speak but timed them using red, yellow and green traffic signals. Residents pleaded over and over again that officers made all the difference, as protectors and role models, when they shed uniforms and donned sweats and mentored kids and organized field trips and helped with homework and coached soccer and kept vulnerable youths off the street and out of trouble.

Three little boys are shooting basketball at the Alexander Odum Playground in West Baltimore's Rosemont community when Sean Mosley strolls by the chain-link fence. "You playing hoops today?" one boy shouts out. "I'm taking the day off," Mosley answers. He's standing between the kids and a cemetery made from graffiti. "Free GSC. We miss u Shorty," says one tribute to the fallen of the West Baltimore drug wars. Sean pauses, recalling the streets of his youth. "I probably know some of them," he says.

"A funeral."Instantly, the Baltimore councilwoman remembers. It's the funeral for Damon Jefferson, the 22-year-old son of a neighbor. Just a few nights earlier, he was gunned down while walking home, right behind her office building on Edmondson Avenue.

In 1989 when Lutheran Hospital closed its doors in West Baltimore's Rosemont neighborhood, no one thought the building would still stand empty 14 years later, becoming one of the city's largest symbols of blight and community decline. "That hospital was a mainstay in this neighborhood. And, when they pulled out, it sent us into a tailspin," said Robert Hunt, president of the Rosemont Neighborhood Improvement Association. "People moved out, and we've had deterioration ever since." While the hospital's demise was viewed as a catalyst in the once-desirable middle-class neighborhood's deterioration, Hunt and others believe that same 6-acre parcel could become Rosemont's greatest asset - if only someone would keep the promise to redevelop the site.
