The Rev. Thomas R. Schwind, the Catholic priest turned Pentecostal pastor who is facing a 13-year-old allegation of rape, has hired former Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke to represent him. Schwind, 50, now pastor of the New Covenant Tabernacle in Jonestown, east of downtown, was accused Thursday by Rita Monahan, a former nun, of sexually assaulting her while she volunteered in 1989 at St. Ambrose Catholic Church, where Schwind was pastor. Monahan, 53, of Chicago also contended at a news conference here that Cardinal William H. Keeler and the Archdiocese of Baltimore covered up the incident, an allegation church officials denied.

Watching Navy nose guard Kevin Schwind ease into his four-point stance is an interesting experience as he climbs up from his knees and plants both hands on the ground to launch his 6-foot-1, 286-pound frame into a power rush from the ground up. Considering the distance that Schwind has traveled to make it to this point, it's a marvel that he is even lining up in the first place. Schwind, a senior from Fairfax, Va., suffered a leg injury last September in the third quarter of a loss to North Carolina State.

For the past several years, Columbia has been at a crossroads. Redevelopment plans have the potential to change the downtown in ways that founder Jim Rouse could have never imagined. More housing is destined for the core, as is a revamped mall and even a grocery store and gym on the lakefront. Meanwhile, Howard County General and Howard Community College continue to grow. In other parts of Columbia, a plan to overhaul many of the village centers could be ready soon and a new president for the Columbia Association could be introduced nearly any day. And let's not forget that this reimagined Columbia seems destined to include changes around Merriweather Post Pavilion, both in Symphony Woods where there's currently a debate on how to develop portions of that property and on the nearby "crescent property," where the Howard Hughes Corp.

A former nun will not participate in the prosecution of a former Catholic priest whom she had accused of raping her in 1989 at St. Ambrose Church, the city state's attorney's office said yesterday. Margaret T. Burns, spokeswoman for the office, said prosecutors received a letter last month from Rita D. Monahan indicating that after additional thought she did not wish to testify in a potential case against the Rev. Thomas R. Schwind, now a Pentecostal pastor in East Baltimore. "Based on correspondence from the victim that outlines her desire not to testify, the state will be unable to proceed, and the matter will be officially closed," Burns said.

Baltimore police have opened an investigation into a 13-year-old allegation by a former nun who says she was raped by a priest in the rectory of a Park Heights parish. Sister Rita D. Monahan, who made her complaints public in a news conference yesterday, said she went to church officials, including Cardinal William H. Keeler, in early 1990 seeking assurances that the priest, the Rev. Thomas R. Schwind, would be sent to a psychiatric center that treats sexual disorders. Instead, she said, the priest was transferred from St. Ambrose to another parish, and she was invited to confess her sins and was offered a $5,000 settlement on the condition that she not press charges and not speak about the incident.

Village residents who live near a 264-unit housing development proposed for the edge of west Columbia are fighting the project, which they say will bring too much traffic to the area and force the cutting of many trees surrounding the site. But the Riverdale development, a project of Dale Thompson Builders Inc. that is slated for a 30-acre site at Cedar Lane and Route 32 near the Middle Patuxent River, is so far along in the process that substantial changes are unlikely. "It's too late in the game for them to be challenging the zoning," said Marsha McLaughlin, director of the Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning.

Bradley I. Schwind feels downgraded, or at least his bicycle does.The city resident has been effectively kicked off the light rail system because his constant companion -- a Performance brand bike -- was branded a weekday undesirable by the Mass Transit Administration.This is no small matter to Mr. Schwind, the owner of a computer repair firm in Hunt Valley. For the past 10 months, he has (willingly!) commuted to work by a combination of light rail and bicycle.He used to ride to Cold Spring station, carry the bike on board, and then finish with the 3-mile jaunt from Timonium.

When a player enters the Naval Academy football program, he is virtually certain of two things about his future: The bright lights and big money of the NFL do not await him, and very soon he could well be trading his football helmet for a combat helmet. The phrase "in harm's way,"often mentioned about the seniors' future destination when the service academies clash on the football field, is not just idle banter. But that realization doesn't make it any easier when the dreaded word comes that a former Midshipman has been killed in action.

The death of a Columbia tree by chain saw often provokes a public outcry, which is why the Columbia Association is moving cautiously as it cuts down 18 large, decades-old damaged trees in Symphony Woods, the town's grove bordering Merriweather Post Pavilion. "The public is going to be concerned when they see the trees come down," said Cynthia A.S.H. Coyle, who chairs the CA board's Planning and Strategy Committee. "The reason is obvious," said Steve Sattler, CA's communications director.
