Anne Arundel County police say that on Tuesday, Arthur Tyler Felton used a box cutter to steal a cell phone and an MP3 player from a Sears in the Annapolis Mall, then briefly carjacked a woman in the parking lot in a failed bid to escape. This is the same Arthur Tyler Felton who in 1991 fatally shot 6-year-old Tiffany Smith in the head during a gunfight with a rival in West Baltimore's Walbrook neighborhood. The shooting of the elementary school student shocked a city, sparked a campaign to rebuild streets lined with vacant rowhouses, focused police attention on gangs, guns and drugs, and prompted residents to create a memorial in the girl's honor.

On a scruffy and littered lot in West Baltimore, Alice Jones slowly rakes uneven ground that only weeks ago was overgrown with weeds and filled with hopelessness.The lot at Bloomingdale Road and Rosedale Street in the Rosemont area was nearly forgotten by residents until early this year. It had not been useful to anyone other than drug users and alcoholics for several years.But to Mrs. Jones and about a dozen or so residents of the Rosemont neighborhood who began clearing the lot this week, the small, uneven patch of land symbolizes a beginning.

When we search for the reasons 6-year-old Tiffany Smith wascaught in the crossfire that snuffed out her life, we should not rush to judgment and automatically blame ''drug dealers.'' That was the mistake made in the shooting death last year of Jay Bias Jr. When the facts came out, it transpired that Mr. Bias died as the result of an argument he did everything he could to avoid.The only fact we know in the case of Tiffany Smith is that she died as the result of an argument she had no part in. The argument may have been about drugs.

Bernadette Devone remembers hearing the gunshots, perhaps eight or 10 of them. She remembers seeing people running, and then seeing people standing over the body of the little girl.It was one month ago. Six-year-old Tiffany Smith died after she was struck in the head by a stray bullet from a savage shootout. She had been playing with a doll on the sidewalk in the 1800 block of N. Rosedale St. near North Avenue.The photograph of Tiffany in pigtails that appeared in newspapers and on TV became a symbol of senseless violence seemingly out of control in the city.

Dino Xanthopoulos tried to stay busy yesterday at the Hollywood Diner doing everything from sweeping to cleaning to hanging pictures on the wall. It just wasn't he wanted to be doing: preparing meals. The restaurant was one of dozens of restaurants and businesses affected by a widespread downtown power outage that made life anything but typical for people who work and live there. "I've just been hanging up a few pictures of stars and doing some cleaning," said a downtrodden Xanthopoulos, who manages the diner, as he lurked inside the normally bright, neon-lit restaurant made famous by two movies.

When it comes to playing for state championships, the North County softball team is batting 1.000. The second-ranked Knights captured their second Class 4A title in as many attempts by warding off Eleanor Roosevelt, 12-6, last night at Randazzo Park in Severn. North County, which won the crown two years ago under former coach Brian Love, concluded its season at 21-5. Senior Brittany Boyd was also a member of the 2000 squad, which brought home the program's first state championship. "Both times, I was lucky enough to be on the team as a starter," said Boyd, who was 3-for-5 with four RBIs and two runs scored.
