What a deal. Last week, the Baltimore Brew reported that the Rawlings-Blake administration agreed to recommend that $6 million in grants meant to mitigate the impact of traffic and other nuisances near Baltimore's planned casino site near I-295 should be used to reimburse the developer for infrastructure costs. According to a memo written by a policy advisor in the Mayor's Office of Government Relations and published in the Brew, a local development council, which the mayor has yet to appoint, is supposed to have advisory input on use of what are called "local impact grants.

My wife and I and another couple just got back from a few days in your beautiful city. We were there to watch baseball and stayed close to the Inner Harbor. While there we could not believe how friendly the people were. Television does not do justice to the beauty of Camden Yards. The Oriole fans are great people, and the concessions were excellent too. I would like to thank the folks at the Hampton Inn for taking such good care of us and also Dave at Peter's Pour House. But most of all I would like the thank the three gentlemen on the boat named "Bus N Loose" for the ride back to the Inner Harbor.

Gene Towner woke up yesterday worried about hash marks. The 61-year-old computer consultant from Towson doesn't generally lose sleep over the short white marks spaced along the length of a football field, but he was in charge of yesterday's 14th annual Freestate Spectacular at Towson University in which 33 Maryland high school marching bands were to compete - all relying on hash marks to keep their lines straight. Hash marks are spaced differently on high school and college fields, and the university's athletic officials were not willing to put temporary adhesive markings on their 2-year-old artificial turf field.

Once again, an out-of-towner has been cut down in their prime in Baltimore's crime wave. A student learning to be a physician. There will be mayoral, police and community outrage, but nothing will be done because the courts have our hands tied. These two vermin should have been in prison, yet they walked free to prey on someone again. How can a city get so upset over a 2-cent bottle tax, but do nothing about human life? I live in the suburbs and would not come downtown for any reason whatsoever.

The new leader of Baltimore's convention bureau plans to mix a little romance with culture and the proven appeal of the Inner Harbor to convince more people to come to Baltimore next year and to stay longer. Leslie R. Doggett, president and chief executive of the Baltimore Area Convention and Visitors Association, offered an array of strategies yesterday to try to achieve those goals as part of the association's 2004 sales and marketing plan. They include opening a sales office in Washington, selling Baltimore as a "romantic city" this winter, expanding electronic marketing and targeting meeting planners who have historically visited Baltimore during the slow months with a direct-mail campaign.

Two out-of-towners came to Laurel Park yesterday with the same idea. And they both succeeded. Not worried about entering unseasoned 2-year-olds into stakes races, Kentucky's Eddie Kenneally and New York's Steven Klesaris took the big prizes in Laurel's rare day of dual stakes races. Kenneally, the former private trainer for the late Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke, took the $100,000 Selima Stakes for 2-year-old fillies with Haitian Vacation. It was the fourth lifetime start for Haitian Vacation, who entered with one victory on her record.

It's a very active community," Mrs. Notari says. "I like the proximity to a number of vicinities.

All Debbie Holt wanted to do yesterday was say a prayer at St. Joseph Church in Emmitsburg. She knew that Gianna Talone-Sullivan, a woman who claims she receives messages from the Virgin Mary, would not be attending the usual Thursday night prayer service. She knew the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore found no basis for the Talone-Sullivan's apparitions and canceled the service. Still, the 32-year-old mother wanted a chance to pray in the church where thousands have heard Talone-Sullivan's messages from Mary for seven years.
