One of my favorite things about living in the Wyman Park neighborhood is that, although we're smack in the middle of the city and all it offers, the park is close by. And one of my favorite things about the park is that, for the first two weeks of July, the wild raspberries are ripe for picking. I've looked forward to this activity every summer since my now-grown sons were wee. Back then, when the children helped pick, we would take the berries (the ones they didn't eat on the spot)

Is there such a thing as a perfectly level street in Baltimore?Not if you've been out walking or driving around town during this period of bad weather. Geographers have an explanation. If it's any consolation as you slide or take a header on a small hill or crooked piece of paving, Baltimore is located on the fall line, the place where the costal plain meets the Piedmont Plateau.There's evidence of this in downtown Baltimore. Try scaling the icy hills of Saratoga, Pleasant, Franklin and Monument streets between Calvert and Charles streets.

A stream flowing through Wyman Park turned bright pink, then lime green Thursday as city crews attempted to pinpoint with dye a break in a sewage pipe that officials estimate has spilled tens of thousands of gallons of untreated human waste into the tributary of the Jones Falls. The Public Works Department sent crews to check out Stony Run near 39th Street shortly after a suspected sewage leak was reported about 10:30 a.m., said department spokesman Kurt Kocher. As part of their investigation, they put a red dye into the sewer line to help them spot the leak.

A 28-year-old man was critically injured yesterday when he plunged 40 to 50 feet from a ledge at Rocks State Park in Harford County. The man, whose name was not released, was flown to Maryland Shock Trauma Center with numerous injuries, authorities said. He and family members were hiking to the King and Queen Seat, a 190-foot rock formation at the park. About 1:40 p.m., the man walked through a hole in the rock formation that climbers refer to as the window, which is about 60 feet from the ground.

THE HAWK ALIGHTED onto a tree limb, which bowed low with the weight of it. It sat very still, waiting for the branch to settle. Its breast feathers were a dirty white, mottled with brown; the wings and head were nearly a uniform tan, except for a few darker streaks.I had never seen a hawk in repose, outside of a zoo, or one so large and so close. I'm more accustomed to watching them circling in the heights, their "finger" feathers at the wing tip all spread.The hawk looked back over the dense hill rising up from Stony Run that pours through Wyman Park.

Veep is fliming in Charles Village today, we're hearing. My fellow Campfield Elementary alum, the omniscient blogger Downtown Diane, Tweeted that the Julia-Louis ("Day by Day") Dreyfus HBO show "Veep" will be filming on Friday at the Ottobar and at the Wyman Park Restaurant in Charles Village. I haven't confirmed the Ottobar filming, but the man who answered the phone at Wyman Park didn't deny the show was filming there. The New Wyman Park Restaurant is my regular Saturday morning spot -- I included it in my favorite restaurants in this 2010 round-up.

It was already a stressful morning for Suzanne Cooke. A German Shepherd had attacked her Chihuahua mix the night before, and then someone had the nerve to steal her parking spot while she made the emergency run to the vet -- a particularly heinous etiquette offense after back-to-back blizzards. She dropped a note on the spot-swiper's minivan Friday morning and hopped into her own Honda Accord, giving life the chance to tax her further: Much of Maryland was finally returning to work post-storm, and some roads leading downtown from her Wyman Park home were barely passable.

The city has set an end-of-the-month deadline for selecting the site of a sewage pumping station along Stony Run in North Baltimore - a timetable that could escalate a months-long dispute in the Wyman Park area. Gary Wyatt, chief utility engineer at the Department of Public Works, said the city has to choose among five proposed sites in the next five weeks so the project, part of a network of federally mandated improvements, can be designed and put up for bid by the end of next year. But community leaders, who are opposed to putting a pumping station at any of the five sites, say there is no need to rush to judgment.

Walk down Beech Avenue in Wyman Park and you'll see baby strollers on porch after porch. This has always been a family neighborhood. And lately there has been a baby boom. Wyman Park has become a haven for young professionals who are starting families and want the advantages of city life but with a little less bustle. Peter Metsopoulos and his wife, Christine Grillo - the parents of 3 1/2 -year-old Enzo and 9-month-old Rita - are part of this wave. They moved to Baltimore three years ago from New York City so that she could attend the graduate writing program at the Johns Hopkins University.

Twenty years ago, the federal government decided to close its Public Health Service hospitals - including the one at Wyman Park in Baltimore - which had provided care for generations of military dependents and retirees. Some of the communities - again including Baltimore - fought the closings. Thus was born Wyman Park Health System, which evolved into Johns Hopkins Community Physicians, an organization employing more than 100 doctors and more than 700 others, caring for nearly 200,000 people a year at 18 sites, and generating $160 million in annual revenue.
