A homebuyer in Baltimore certainly doesn't need to leave the city limits to live in the lap of luxury. One of the area's finest homes is found at 206 Goodwood Gardens in Roland Park. This magnificent Colonial Revival, built of stucco and featuring a side porch that wraps around to the rear of the home, dates to 1907 and was once home to Daniel Willard, who served as president of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad for 31 years. Located on almost a half-acre of manicured lawns and gardens, this property is being sold for $2.2 million.

The Sun's editorial on the late developer Willard Hackerman was very even-handed in summing up the extraordinary contributions of this great man ( "Baltimore's man to see," Feb. 10). However, I believe there is a deeper level to consider when viewing his contributions. Being wealthy, powerful and connected is no reason to treat someone unkindly or suspect them of wrongdoing. I briefly worked for Whiting-Turner as a carpenter in 1975. After repeatedly banging my thumb with a hammer, I realized that my talents lay elsewhere.

Willard Hackerman held no public office, but he was as much a city father to Baltimore as any mayor or City Council member, delegate or senator. Few, if any, have had a larger impact on this community than the 95-year-old man who died at Johns Hopkins Hospital Monday morning, and few have demonstrated greater devotion to it. Mr. Hackerman, the builder of the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, the National Aquarium and the Baltimore Convention Center, has...

A Baltimore police sergeant who claimed he was never treated for post-traumatic stress disorder after he fatally shot a man in 2005 has settled a lawsuit against the city, in a deal that allows him to retire with his pension, according to court documents and his attorney. Under terms of the settlement, Richard A. Willard, 45, dropped the federal suit and a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; the Police Department canceled an administrative hearing that could have led to his termination.

The gun battle raged in three different spots near the old Murphy Homes high-rise in West Baltimore, ending on a cold February day with the death of a 20-year-old man in a hail of gunfire from four city police officers. Four years later, one of the officers claimed he was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, but says he never got the help he needed to cope with killing a man. Instead, Richard A. Willard says the department is trying to fire him. The sergeant sued the Police Department this week, and is seeking an injunction in U.S. District Court court to delay his Feb. 22 termination hearing.
