Maryland linebacker Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil - who worked his way up from Division II to a prominent role with the Terps - is out for the season with a pectoral injury, the team announced Monday. Cudjoe-Virgil - who is known for making plays behind the line of scrimmage  - was injured early in Saturday's 27-26 victory over Virginia. The severity of the injury was not known immediately, and Maryland coach Randy Edsall declined to speculate about injuries during a Sunday conference call.

The crape myrtle was at its summertime height the other day when I wandered into the Seton Hill neighborhood to see the area's newest arrival. Without fanfare, a new Mother Seton House visitors center has risen in one of Baltimore's most venerable locations. It's tucked between Mother Seton House and the old St. Mary's Seminary Chapel. This location, only a few blocks west of the Washington Monument and Mount Vernon Place, is not as well known as it should be. St. Mary's Park and the adjoining collection of National Register of Historic Place landmarks provide a delightfully atmospheric glimpse into early Baltimore.

If the battle between city residents and city drug dealers is a battle of wills, it appears the drug dealers are winning, or at least have city agencies so confused that they can't keep a single street illuminated in a neighborhood that abuts downtown and Mount Vernon. The people who live in Seton Hill got a portable floodlight near Orchard Street and Pennsylvania Avenue to counter a drug market. The dealers who prefer to ply their trade in the dark broke the light by cutting the wires and bending the frame.

Seton Hill residents and Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. yesterday settled their bitter two-year dispute over the appearance of a new electric substation in the historic neighborhood. The compromise design requires BGE to completely rebuild an existing brick compound, spending at least $3 million more than required by a plan presented to the Baltimore Planning Commission last month and fiercely opposed by area residents. "I'm not jumping up and down for joy," said Mico Milanovic, a member of the Seton Hill Community Association.

City officials hope to transform a closed firehouse in Seton Hill in downtown's west side into a cafe or shop with offices or apartments above, the Baltimore Development Corp. said Monday. The BDC, the city's economic development arm, is seeking proposals to redevelop the two-story brick building at 700 N. Eutaw St. in a neighborhood of historic rowhouses and churches centered around St. Mary's Park. "It's an attractive, stable residential neighborhood, and there are a few little pockets here and there where property could be redeveloped," said John Thompson, economic development officer for the BDC. The community has seen an uptick in development in recent years, including the conversion of the former City College, in a block adjacent to the firehouse, into the Chesapeake Commons apartments as well as the renovation of a commercial strip in the 500 block of N. Eutaw St. Construction is expected to start this year on The M on Madison, a residential rental project at Madison and Howard streets.

Five firefighters suffered minor injuries Monday evening when a building collapsed during a four-alarm fire in West Baltimore. The fire began at and significantly damaged a three-story brick building and adjacent lumberyard in the 600 block of Pennsylvania Ave. called Penn Lumber, fire officials said. A deli next door also was damaged. Nearly 30 fire firetrucks and 100 firefighters were called in to battle the fire in Seton Hill and were still at the scene at 8:30 p.m. Conditions in the building worsened rapidly once firefighters responded in the late afternoon, city fire spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright said.

Will a state or city leader with a clear set of well-considered priorities please stand up? Jill Carter and Carl Stokes are at it again ("Speed cameras yield $19.2 million," Sept. 12). I can't keep up with all the issues they keep raising. Let me tell you, Mr. Stokes, that I wish there were more cameras around Baltimore City. Seton Hill has tried for years to get the city to slow the traffic on Druid Hill Avenue, but the city refuses to help, ironically citing the need for first responders to get through the area quickly.

When Kevin-Douglas Olive first saw his rowhouse in Baltimore's historic Seton Hill, he wasn't certain he could live in a space only 9 feet wide. "Good grief, it's narrow," he remembered thinking. But as he and his partner passed the living room fireplace decorated with Delft tiles showing French hunting scenes, stood on cherry floors that once were decking on a ship and saw the upper-level skylights, Olive began to feel inspired. As soon as he stepped out on the third-floor terrace, he was enthralled.

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.

Work is scheduled to start this winter to transform the biggest state government complex in Maryland into a model of 21st-century urban design, a $1.5 billion "village" that clusters offices, homes and shops around mass transit and plazas in a now-blighted swath of midtown Baltimore. After years of planning and community input, and with a new development team at the helm, the overhaul of 28 acres at State Center will begin with an underground garage at Madison Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
