The state Board of Public Works voted yesterday to bar Baltimore businessman Gilbert Sapperstein, who pleaded guilty to defrauding the city school system of $3.3 million, from entering into work contracts with public agencies for an indefinite period. Assistant Maryland Attorney General Gary Honick said the state wanted Sapperstein prohibited from gaining state contracts because of his role in the schools scandal and to ensure the integrity of the public procurement process. He said Sapperstein, the former owner of All-State Boiler Services Inc., could file a petition with the board in five years to have the prohibition lifted.

State and local officials are looking to buy a 190-acre waterfront farm in eastern Baltimore County from a developer, even though the partly wooded spread on Back River scored poorly on a rating system the state uses to rank potential purchases for parkland. No deal has been reached, and no one would reveal what price has been discussed with developer Mark C. Sapperstein, who says he has spent at least $6 million to buy and improve the land. But county officials, who paid Sapperstein more than the appraised value of another property two years ago, say they would be "very interested" in acquiring Bauer's Farm to preserve it from development and to expand public access to the river and Chesapeake Bay. "Anytime Baltimore County could preserve a couple hundred acres of prime waterfront property and add it to the county's park inventory, that would always get our interest," said Don Mohler, spokesman for County Executive James T. Smith Jr. The farm, with nearly a mile of shoreline, adjoins 1,360-acre North Point State Park, which has a wading beach, fishing pier and hiking trails.

Audiences have gotten used to open-ended plots that don't tie everything up, but the refreshingly anarchic comedy Hamlet 2 features something new: a completely open-ended character. Steve Coogan plays Dana Marschz (don't worry, no one in the film knows how to pronounce it either) as a man whose diverse enthusiasm keeps stretching him out like Silly Putty. His exuberance knows no limits; too bad the same doesn't go for his talent. Coogan, a comedy star in England, is a resourceful actor who goes for broke in Hamlet 2 playing a maladroit performer.

He has been convicted of conspiracy, bribery and theft, but Gilbert Sapperstein, a former boiler company owner and longtime liquor license broker who participated in a scheme to steal nearly $3.3 million from the Baltimore school system, is still doing business with the city. The Board of Estimates yesterday approved a payment of $260,700 to Sapperstein for properties he owns in the 900 block of Washington Blvd. in the Pigtown neighborhood. The board's action sealed a real estate deal that city officials say was in the works long before Sapperstein was convicted for his role in bilking the school system.

Gilbert Sapperstein apologized yesterday for his role in a scheme to steal more than $3.3 million from the city school system - but the grandfather and businessman received little sympathy as he was sentenced to 18 months in jail. "I made a mistake, and I embarrassed my family," said Sapperstein, who pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy, bribery and theft. In a plea deal with the state prosecutor's office, Sapperstein, 72, a Green Spring Valley resident and owner of All State Boiler Service Inc., also agreed to pay back the stolen money.

A stalled project to redevelop a critical downtown corner appears back on track after market changes forced a shift from an apartment tower to a mix of hotels and residences. Two new hotels with 300 rooms are now planned for the $100 million Citycenter project at Calvert and Lombard streets, first proposed three years ago as a luxury apartment tower, developer Mark Sapperstein says. The 30-story building, which Sapperstein said he hopes to start building this year, will include two Hyatt-branded hotels, a Hyatt Place, geared to business travelers, and an extended-stay Hyatt Summerfield Suites, with apartments on top, Sapperstein said.

A Pikesville developer is moving forward with plans to build 144 high-end townhouses on a waterfront parcel in eastern Baltimore County. Mark C. Sapperstein won County Council approval last night to submit the project as a "planned unit development." The designation, while subjecting the plans to public hearings, allows Sapperstein to break some zoning rules if the project is determined to benefit the community. Early plans call for clusters of six "villa-style" townhomes built on 37 acres on what once was Bauer's Farm in Edgemere.

Baltimore County officials say parkland is so scarce in some areas that they're willing to pay premium dollars when it becomes available. But a plan to buy a patch of green on the east side has raised questions from a County Council member about the price the county would pay for it. The county administration has agreed to pay $900,000 to a developer for about 20 acres of a field next to Sparrows Point High School in Edgemere. The deal requires approval of the County Council, which has scheduled a vote for tonight.
