A medic unit that had rushed to the scene of the midday shooting in Belair-Edison sat idling in the street. With the dead man's body under a sheet, there was no one to transport. Word was spreading about 49-year-old Kelvin Moyd's being shot. Relatives came running down Pelham Avenue, visibly upset and too frantic to cry. Two women burst through crime scene tape. One was bear-hugged by a male officer, who had other officers come to his aid as he struggled to keep her back. Then a man came down the street and a group of people swarmed him before he could confront an officer.

The Waltherson neighborhood in Baltimore has been around since the 1920s and its style hasn't changed much since then. But sometimes having a constant like that is a good thing -- at least that's how it is for some residents in this northeastern region of the city. "It has stayed very nice," said Kathy Rogers, a former president of the Waltherson Improvement Association and a 38-year resident of the community. "I grew up here, and every time I consider moving, I think to myself, why move?

So by now everyone knows the hot areas of the city -- Federal Hill, Fells Point, Canton, Mount Washington -- and the list continues to grow. But bargain hunters and trendsetters know that before an area is declared "a happening," it usually starts out as a quiet little neighborhood that has something unique to offer. While the Waltherson neighborhood may not be walking distance to Harborplace or near an artsy enclave, it does offer a lot of house and yard for very little money. "You can get the houses at very reasonable prices.

The 67-year-old woman had finished her day as a downtown law firm receptionist, ridden the bus to Northeast Baltimore and was making the short walk to her well-manicured home. The 14-year-old boy and his friends had skipped school, found a rifle in an abandoned rowhouse and were firing off rounds most of that afternoon. Devon Richardson pulled the trigger on Sept. 26, and Janice Letmate died - the kind of crime police called "a senseless tragedy," the kind of crime that made Letmate's adult children and others who heard about what happened fearful of the city.

The Sunday review is of Clementine, one of the pioneering restaurants in Hamilton. Or is it Hamilton? The Baltimore neighborhood map says that Clementine is in Harford-Echodale/Perrring Parkway. But someone stuck a sticky note on the big newsroom map saying that the neighborhood is now officially known as Hamilton Hills. The businesses just across Harford Road are in Waltherson. See for yourself. Clementine would be a major asset to whatever neighborhood it's in. I am guilty of having thought about it as a brunch place.
