Three solid wood doors sit behind graceful columns, part of the huge facade that marks the entrance to St. Mary's Seminary and University, a city landmark that has stood on Roland Avenue for more than 80 years. The portal is imposing, but the cracked asphalt at its approach has until recently lacked the same grandeur. A Baltimore architect whose family has for decades worked with the oldest seminary in the nation, established in 1791, has enhanced the entry to the white limestone building with the addition of a graceful stone balustrade and landscaped fountain.

It was a sad month when the wreckers leveled the old St. Mary's Seminary on Paca Street in the mid-1970s. When the Victorian landmark where so many Roman Catholic priests received their religious education disappeared, its components went everywhere. At one time, I owned a Calvert Street rowhouse with a staircase partially constructed from spindles salvaged from this part of old Baltimore. Just as the doors and weathervane were salvaged from the old seminary and put to new uses, its location was also repurposed.

Centennial wrestler Nathan Kraisser has two state championships and a national ranking, but the junior is still looking for his first Mount Mat Madness title. On Friday, he decided to take a difficult route to get it, weighing in for the 119-pound class instead of the 125-pound class he has wrestled in for most of the season. Kraisser, ranked No. 15 nationally by Intermat at 125 pounds, chose the lighter class for an opportunity to wrestle Wyoming Seminary's Dom Malone, who is ranked seventh nationally and has beaten him here twice — the first time in the final and last year in the semifinals.

A few weeks ago, in response to a column about downtown Baltimore's Seton Hill, Jerilyn Manning gave me a call. She told me that I had missed a good story. She was so right. She is the event coordinator for the Charles R. Uncles Senior Plaza at 607 Pennsylvania Ave. I caught up with Manning and Uncles Plaza this week. It was a revelation — how an 1893 Roman Catholic seminary, St. Joseph's, had been transformed into a residence for senior citizens. The Rev. Charles R. Uncles was the first African-American to be ordained a Roman Catholic priest.

JERUSALEM -- On different sides of this divided city, grieving Israelis laid to rest their murdered children while a Palestinian family grieved over the loss of the young man who killed them. Despite the bloodshed, an Israeli official said his country would not cut off peace talks with the moderate Palestinian leadership - an apparent nod to Washington's insistence that extremist violence not be allowed to derail efforts to forge a deal by year's end. Israel will push ahead with the talks "so as not to punish moderate Palestinians for actions by people who are not just our enemies but theirs as well," said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the government had yet to make a formal announcement.
