A computer center opened yesterday in a federally subsidized Annapolis apartment complex as part of an effort to give residents technological skills needed to compete in the job market. The center at the low-income Woodside Gardens apartments was among improvements financed by a grant last year of $124,000 by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, which used the dedication ceremony yesterday to announce two more grants. Officials of HUD said the new grants, totaling $375,000, will be used to enhance computer training at the complex, expand child care and education programs, and strengthen law-enforcement services in the area.

After complaining for months of shoddy maintenance work, lease violations and rude treatment, residents of a federally subsidized neighborhood in Annapolis are demanding the ouster of the development's manager.About a dozen residents of Woodside Gardens traded accounts of rusty nails and excessive fees at a news conference yesterday in a stuffy basement community room. They threatened a rent strike if manager Eva Anderson is not forced to leave the 144-unit development off Forest Drive."Every time I think about this lady, my blood pressure goes up," said Judy Diggs, president of the newly formed Woodside Gardens Residents Council, who carried a petition with 116 signatures calling for Ms. Anderson's resignation.

While managers of the Woodside Gardens housing complex and Annapolis officials argued over using a parking lot for U-turns, residents of the complex had to do without city bus service for two days.City officials brokered a compromise that will allow bus service to resume today, but many residents of the 144-family subsidized housing complex said they felt isolated and angry after the incident.At a community meeting last night, people who rely on the bus for transportation to school and work blamed the building's management for allowing the squabble to sacrifice their services.

Gov. William Donald Schaefer wants to get state police and other state agencies on the front lines of the drug war, starting with Newtowne 20 and Woodside Gardens, drug-plagued neighborhoods in Annapolis.Dubbed "Operation People," the effort has placed more than 30 state troopers in those neighborhoods after a year of predominantly drug-related violent crime. The governor has suggested the same approach might be attempted in Baltimore.Troopers stood on the sidewalks of those neighborhoods Friday looking like so many beat cops as the governor, the mayor and a clutch of reporters and photographers marked the first week of the experiment.

It seems that if you're poor and black in Annapolis, your opinion doesn't count for much.In two separate incidents, the wishes of black residents have been ignored or condemned by Annapolis city politicians and businessmen who thought they knew what these residents needed.At Woodside Gardens, a subsidized housing complex off Forest Avenue, the management company is requiring every resident age 6 and older to have a photo identification card and present it upon demand.The management company said the ID cards are to help the security guards identify and expel outsiders who come into the neighborhood to deal drugs and cause trouble.

Elizamae Robinson, who has lived at the Woodside Gardens housing complex in Annapolis for 24 years, said the management's decision to make her and her neighbors carry identification cards would be like "living in a police state.""I'm 62 years old and I don't want to be coming out of my door and be harassed by police coming up to me asking for an ID," said Ms. Robinson, who will refuse to have her picture taken Friday. "It's just not right."Ms. Robinson and the other tenants in the 144-unit development off Forest Drive found memos near their front doors Monday informing them of the new policy.
