About 100 people and businesses were robbed in Baltimore for the week ending Sept. 27, a spike of more than 60 percent compared to the prior week yet down from the same time period last year.  Eight of the robberies occurred downtown or in the Inner Harbor, while the entire Southwestern District reported just three robberies. The same statistics show robberies for the year are down 12 percent compared to last year. The Northern District saw the most of any of the Police Department's nine police districts, with 21. Eight of those robberies appear to have occurred in a single incident in the 5900 block of York Road on Sept.

Sue Pakulla was used to the bustling atmosphere of managing the Columbia office of O'Conor, Piper & Flynn ERA at a time when home sales in Howard County seemed as brisk as ever. And then it all stopped on Sept. 11. As the horror of that day unfolded, when terrorist attacks in Washington and New York stunned America, she knew the days to come would be unlike any that she had seen. "I had a difficult time, pulling people back in, away from their TV," Pakulla said. "They were all glued to their TVs, and that had a major impact on our business at that point because not only were my agents glued, but so were people who were looking to buy houses."

You can just imagine Sandy Messer from Clyde, N.C., sitting in front of her computer, pouring her tormented thoughts, first into sentences and then into an e-mail, and finally sending it off to www.goodthings.com. She wrote: "In the wake of things that have happened in our country, I only wish that everyone could look around them and see all the wonderful, beautiful things in this world that were put here for us!" That's exactly what GoodThings intends to do. While the TV news has run a constant loop of airplanes flying into buildings on Sept.
