Filene's Basement warned state regulators Monday that it expected to close its Baltimore and Rockville stores in January, laying off 68 people. The discount clothing retailer and its parent, Syms Corp., filed for bankruptcy protection last week and asked for court approval to liquidate their assets. Filene's Basement told the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation that layoffs would affect 31 employees at its Inner Harbor store and 37 employees in Rockville. Both locations are expected to shut down Jan. 9. jhopkins@baltsun.com twitter.com/RealEstateWonk

Syms Corp., the owner of Filene's Basement, announced today that both companies have filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11. Rather than reorganize its finances and continue operating, though, Syms said it concluded that liquidation was the best move for shareholders. The 102-year-old Filene's had been in bankruptcy in 2009 when Syms, founded in 1959, acquired the retailer's assets in a bankruptcy auction. But a turnaround wasn't possible. In a statement, Syms CEO Marcy Syms said: “This has been a challenging time for Syms and Filene's Basement.

Invited over to help celebrate his son's first birthday, 25-year-old Hari P. Close III had been a no-show. But overnight Tuesday, Close crept into the home where his son lived and climbed into bed with the boy's mother, records show. On Wednesday morning, 1-year-old Dalyire Damion McFadden was missing, and he was later found by police wrapped in a deflated air mattress in the basement. He had been stabbed in the neck, police say. Close, who was an aspiring male model, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in his son's death and was being held without bond.

After four days without power, my family returned to the 21st century Wednesday night, but that wasn't the worst experience of the storm. As I snuggled up on the couch Saturday to weather Irene with my family, I had no idea what was in store. I suspected a lot of hype and substantial rain, but nothing to write home about. Around 10:30 Saturday night, power went out in our neighborhood. A short time later, I went to bed, only to be startled awake at 1 a.m. by my mother who told me I had to come downstairs.

A 28-year-old guy living in his parents' basement in South Philadelphia just might be one of the foremost experts on the Archdiocese of Baltimore, if not the whole American Catholic Church. Rocco Palmo facetiously calls himself "The Church Whisperer," and over the past six years, his blog has become a must-read for ecclesiastical insiders. After starting with just three readers a few days before Christmas in 2004, Palmo has built up a audience of roughly 500,000 unique visitors each month.

I was sorry to hear that William Lloyd "Little Willie" Adams had passed away. Years ago, my friend Elliott Klupt, who lived next door to Mr. Adams, and I were invited over to meet Joe Louis, who was staying at his home before a fight. We were about 12 years old, and Mr. Louis was in the basement practicing his punching. That was a special time in my life. Gerald Yamin, Pikesville

We are talking today about social graces on social media, and I don't mean Congressman Anthony Weiner and his over-sharing. We will save that compelling topic for another time. No, today we are talking about me and my birthday and my flooded basement and my Facebook page. I awoke that morning to my cellphone chirping like the birds outside my bedroom window, as dozens of birthday greetings flowed in from every corner of Facebook, and I felt the love. This is a kind of artificial love, but it is love.

In a Canton basement lit by fluorescent lights, a dozen glass jugs of fermenting grape juice share space with a washer, dryer and furnace. Standing before them, Erik Bandzak surveys his wines: two deep reds made from a Rougeon grape and an Isabella blackberry blend, which every few minutes emit tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide through their glass air locks. A glass hydrometer, an instrument that gauges a wine's sugar content, measures his Rougeon at about 0.99. "That's what I want it at," Bandzak says.
