Baltimore lost a large stand of trees near the Jones Falls Expressway in late 2016 when the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. cleared land north of Cold Spring Lane to build an electric substation. Now, more trees have been cut down for a separate project off Charles Street just north of Cold Spring Lane.

Over the past three weeks, two cats and a fox have been euthanized in North Baltimore after tests revealed that they had rabies. Three cases does not make an epidemic, but if you live in the 21210, 21211, or 21212 zip codes consider yourself forewarned — and consider keeping your pets inside.
They say it’s the policy that’s always been in place, but it seems pretty raw to me. The Johns Hopkins at Keswick complex was closed twice recently due to illness outbreaks. The administrative workers, who were barred from coming in, are being forced to use vacation days to make up the lost time. And if they don’t have any to spend, Hopkins will lend them some, to be paid back later.
With help from several local education leaders, including Loyola prof Peter Murrell and former Gilman School headmaster Jon McGill, Baltimore City will see a brand new public charter school opening fall 2012 in North Baltimore.
As Murrell, an urban studies professor at Loyola, notes, “At this point, there’s no school that’s focused on college access and African-American students.” This school would be the city’s attempt to fill that hole. So what would make this particular charter school stand out? Well, for one, the school’s goal would be to have kids taking college-level classes as early as 10th grade. Students would show up to college better prepared, and potentially be able to graduate from college a year (or more!) early.
It may seem counterintuitive to have a high school put an emphasis on college-level classes — especially a school that will most likely draw students from disadvantaged backgrounds. But fans of the early college high school model say that it’s exactly this rigor that encourages students to thrive. More than 230 of these schools have opened over the past decade, most of them catering to “low-income youth, first-generation college goers, English language learners, students of color, and other young people underrepresented in higher education.”
When it opens in the fall of 2012, the school will host 150 students chosen by lottery, half each in the sixth and seventh grades. Over the next few years, grades eight through twelve would be phased in.
