Whoever fired into Dave Gilmore's Woodberry home early Sunday morning had the wrong address. But how can the non-profit manager be sure the shooters know that, he wonders? How does he know that they won't come back? When Gilmore heard the loud pop from inside his home early Sunday morning, the last thing he imagined were gunshots. He lives in Woodberry, on TV Hill where three city television stations broadcast, and in four years, has never heard shots there. There was no doubt about the bullet hole, the ricochet marks, and the spent round he found inside the Rockrose Avenue home, however.

If you are not finding enough gore and mayhem at the movies this summer, you should be able to get your fill from a couple of Baltimore's ambitious, DIY-style theater companies, all served up with considerable gusto. In the process, you'll also get to experience two extraordinary theatrical works that do not come around often. Mobtown Players' 'The Spanish Tragedy' The bloodiest encounter is offered by Mobtown Players, a troupe that was recently flooded out of its home in Woodberry.

Three light rail stations in North Baltimore — Mount Washington, Cold Spring and Woodberry — will be closed for three weeks of emergency repairs starting Friday as crews work to shore up significant track-side soil erosion, the Maryland Transit Administration said Wednesday. Rail service through the stations will be halted, and buses will shuttle riders between the Falls Road and North Avenue stations through July 11, the agency said. The closures overlap with a 13-game homestand by the Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards downtown and the Inner Harbor's annual Fourth of July celebration — two major drivers of transit use to and from the suburbs north of the city.

CONVENTIONAL WISDOM holds that educational institutions benefit the city at large to an extent that justifies inconvenience to individual neighborhoods or small groups of people. But is this always true? Can institutional expansion plans threaten harm to neighborhoods that will make them less attractive, more likely to lose both population and tax base? Take, for example, the sports complex that Loyola College proposes to build in Woodberry Forest. Woodberry, adjacent to Hampden, is poised for a residential resurgence.

One thing people love to do in the summertime is watch movies outdoors. And it kind of makes sense, right? I mean, who wants to be cooped up in a dark, quiet movie theater watching a movie, when you can be sitting outside in the heat, trying to hear a movie over police helicopters, people's pets and your neighbor's kids? Well, Union Craft Brewing, 1700 Union Ave., has a game-changing formula for watching movies outdoors. The brewery in Woodberry hosting its School's Out Summer Movie Series on Friday evenings this month.

The ancient Clipper Industrial Park is a remarkable Baltimore landmark shoehorned between the northeastern flank of Druid Hill Park, Television Hill, the Jones Falls Expressway and the Woodberry light rail station.Although the industrial park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, I'll bet it's Baltimore's least known landmark.This campus of 19th century foundry buildings has been quietly converted into a kind of art studio village. It got some attention yesterday when a handful of painters, sculptors, potters and woodworkers staged an open house as part of the citywide Sixth Open Studio Tour.

Originally a community that housed blue-collar mill workers in the early 1800s, the Woodberry neighborhood has developed into an eclectic area with diverse housing styles while still retaining most of its original charm. "It's as if rural America was dropped right in the middle of the city," says Dr. Claudia Brown, a former school principal, 34-year Woodberry resident and member of the Park Hill/Edgegreen Community Association. "The residents used to be more blue-collar, but now it's a more cosmopolitan area with residents coming from remarkably different backgrounds."

Woodberry residents have a pleasant chore this week: deciding what wording should go on an historical marker at their new light-rail station.Passenger service returns to the old hillside mill village for the first time in more than 30 years when the Mass Transit Administration's big white light-rail cars start pacing along the Jones Falls Valley this spring."

Parts & Labor, the new meat-centric project from Woodberry Kitchen restaurateurs Amy and Spike Gjerde, is something new for Baltimore: a combination restaurant and butcher shop. The restaurant's culinary focus couldn't be clearer. It's meat. It's not all meat, all the time, but it comes close. The menu's centerpiece is a changing selection of five or so dry-aged butcher's cuts, which the menu describes as "under-appreciated" cuts like "plate steak" and "petite tender," which the waiter will helpfully tell you is not at all like a filet mignon.

Three teenagers who were arrested fleeing the scene of a break-in Monday might be responsible for a weekend wave of robberies and other incidents across North Baltimore, police said. Residents recounted a series of gunpoint robberies and home break-ins Friday, as well as additional reports of robberies Sunday night. On Monday, residents told The Baltimore Sun that teens had kicked in the door of a home in the 2000 block of Girard Ave. in Woodberry that morning. They said police responding to a neighbor's 911 call chased and caught three suspects.

Businesses along the Jones Falls in the Woodberry neighborhood are used to the Jones Falls surging onto roads and parking lots after rainstorms, but Wednesday's flooding wasn't normal. At Nepenthe Homebrew in Meadow Mill, owners watched the floodwaters seep into their business, rising from a depth of a few inches to several feet, said Brian Arnold, who owns Nepenthe with his fiancee, Jill Antos. Outside, the water had surged as much as 3 feet higher than flood markers under the Jones Falls Expressway, he said.

The elderly woman who lives in the van in the shopping center on 41st Street in Hampden is Harriet Kahn. It says "Kahn" on the vanity plates of her van, but "Can" is how she pronounces her name because, she says, the softer "ah" (as in "Kaan") gives her name a pretentiousness she dislikes. Ms. Kahn is at most 5 feet tall; she says she'll be 80 in late March. She has small hands. Her hair is straight and gray; she keeps it wrapped with a scarf on cold days. She has sharp features and dark eyes with a certain savvy spark.

Shoo-Fly Diner, the new restaurant from Amy and Spike Gjerde, opened mid-October in the Belvedere Square building - a former Hess Shoes store - that has previously housed the restaurants Taste and Crush. Before their untimely closings, both Taste and Crush had respectable runs in this space. Even so, this location has taken on a reputation for being frustrating. If you talk to residents of the York Road corridor, where this handsome commercial building is located, they'll tell you that they're sick of their chain restaurants and weary of taverns that count for their dining options.

A two-alarm fire damaged a brick warehouse in an industrial park along the Jones Falls yesterday afternoon, disrupting light rail service as city firefighters briefly closed the nearby Woodberry station, authorities said. No one was inside the three-story building in the 1700 block of Union Ave. when the fire occurred, police said. The cause, police said, appeared to be fumes from cans of paint coming into contact with a heat source in the building, which according to state records is owned by the Time Group realty firm.

For years, Woodberry activists fought Loyola College's plan to cut down a large swath of forest near their neighborhood and build a sports complex in its place. After Loyola agreed to preserve the best half of the forest - a mix of old beech, ash, oak ironwood and hawthorn trees - the college and community reached an agreement and the building began. But in February, Loyola cut an extra 50,000 square feet of dense woods. Now old fears and animosities have been rekindled in a community that feels powerless to stop wealthy, large-scale developers and believes that city regulations can do little to help them.

It might be useful to think of Woodberry Kitchen not as a restaurant but as a theatrical production, and a long-running one at that, still playing to sold-out audiences after six years. Start with the producers. Spike Gjerde opened Woodberry Kitchen in 2007 with his wife, Amy. A third partner, Nelson Carey, is no longer involved with the operation. For Gjerde, who had shown range and flair with his earlier restaurants, Spike & Charlie's, Atlantic and Joy America Cafe, Woodberry Kitchen was a stellar comeback.

Thursday is Baltimore's 20th annual Dining Out for Life fundraiser. Some 40 Baltimore-area restaurants are joining in the charitable dining event. Restaurants participating in Dining Out for Life agree to donate at least 20 percent of their check total to Moveable Feast, which provides meals to people with HIV and other diseases. But some restaurants are donating more. Clementine, The Brewer's Art and Gertrude's are donating 50 percent, for example, and Alchemy, B Bistro and Saute are pledging 35 percent of their take from Thursday's dinner.
