At the Royal Oak Apartments, the women are in charge. "We're not chauvinistic," said Carmen Ramos, a 50-year-old grandmother. "It just happened that way." It was the women of this 207-unit complex in Northwest Baltimore, the single mothers and grandmothers, who decided they were fed up with the poor maintenance, the stairwells that smelled like outhouses, and the dried blood that stained the walls from a shooting last year. They were the ones who demanded a change. Ramos and Lakeshia Pate, her comrade-in-arms, went all-out during a weeklong campaign to turn this Section 8 complex into a decent place to live.

The Royal Oak Apartments used to be an "anything goes" type of place: drug dealing, people illegally tapping into electrical and phone lines, stairwells and hallways turned into public restrooms. Management was unwilling or unable to do anything about those problems, or the broken windows, ripped-out light fixtures and overall deterioration that had made the Section 8 complex in Park Heights a sinkhole for thousands of federal tax dollars each month. Now, a $17 million sale and renovation of Royal Oak is slowly turning the longtime trouble spot in the 2400 block of Loyola Northway into a decent place for the women and children who are its primary residents.

ROYAL OAK -- John Swaine Jr. says that in his little part of Talbot County, this summer has been the driest since 1930. And he can prove it. He'll be 80 this month, and the retired farmer has been a backyard observer for the National Weather Service -- dutifully scribbling down the daily highs and lows, precipitation totals, wind gusts and cloud cover -- since 1948. On top of that, Swaine has records back to 1891, dusty documents he found a few years ago in storage at the University of Maryland, College Park.
