Daedalus Books is closing its Belvedere Square location to the dismay of bookworms throughout the city. On the bright side, fans of the store will be able to get some great book bargains before the store is slated to close May 15. The store is already discounting books by 30 percent to get rid of inventory. Prices could be slashed as much as 50 percent by the time it closes, a store manager said. Daedalus specializes in remainder books sales - the excess inventory that publishing houses sell at a discount - so their books are already pretty cheap.

Late last November, Demi showed up, fully formed, on the basement level of Crush, like Athena having just burst out of Zeus' head. It sounded like a trick — that Demi was just a ruse to get overflow diners from Crush to move into an undesirable seating area. But this new lower level, we were told, was not "Demi at Crush," or any other kind of halfway gimmick; Demi and Crush, it was promised, were two separate restaurants: Crush above, Demi below. The truth is there is a tiny bit of blurring, some of it inevitable, at least for the short term.

The folks at XS have been stirring. The multistory cafe, sushi bar and lounge has very recently revealed a freshened-up menu, along with a few weekly specials and a handsome new marketing package. That's good to see; I like to see a restaurant trying. XS just passed its seventh anniversary, and although it appears to be doing well — it's always crowded when I walk by — I don't think anyone outside its core base of customers thinks of it much. XS is located on the same strip of Charles Street in Midtown Belvedere as the other members of Jay's Restaurant Group.

One man was seriously hurt in two separate shootings Wednesday night, police said, and another was hurt early Thursday in the second reported Midtown-Belvedere stabbing this week. In the most serious shooting, a 19-year-old man was attacked after he walked by two men in the 5100 block of Belair Road at about 9:31 p.m., according to preliminary reports. According to police, one of the two men grabbed the 19-year-old and choked him. After they went through his pockets, one of the men shot him in the left hip and stomach and the two fled the scene, police said.

A registered sex offender, who had been sought on rape charges since Baltimore County sheriff's deputies mistakenly released him from custody last month, was apprehended Tuesday night in the city's Mid-Town Belvedere neighborhood. Baltimore City police spokesman Jeremy Silbert said members of the regional Warrant Apprehension Task Force received information about 34-year-old Ernest Clark's possible whereabouts and conducted surveillance in the area. He was spotted outside in the 200 block of E. Chase St. at about 6:15 p.m. and was taken into custody without incident.

The owner of a vacant nine-story office building at 11 E. Chase Street in Midtown-Belvedere is seeking city approval to convert the property to 56 apartments. A group called Daejan 11 E. Chase LLC, represented by Samuel Monderer, has applied to Baltimore's Board of Municipal and Zoning Appeals to convert the historic Algonquin building to residential use. Monderer also controls the neighboring apartment building at 1010 St. Paul St. and a parking lot between the two buildings. A zoning board hearing has been set for Tuesday.

I am writing this in response to Diane Kelly's letter regarding radio station WTMD potentially occupying the Senator Theatre (Readers respond, Feb. 2). Ms. Kelly, your comments regarding the proposal smack of unwarranted paranoia. Yes, it is true that Towson University has no control over students when they are off campus. They are, after all, young adults and are responsible for their behavior, whether it be on or off campus. However, you seemingly have a jaundiced perception of these students as drunken, despicable louts who urinate on the neighbors' lawns at odd hours of the night.

Neighbors of the Senator Theater are wise to question the wisdom of having that building sold to Towson University ("Senator Theatre bids pared to Towson University, Charles," Jan. 27). They would be well-advised to meet with other communities which have dealt with the university over various issues. It would be far better to mount opposition now and keep Towson out of their community. Despite the statements of Marina Cooper, the usual response of the university has been that is has no control/responsibility for students when they are off campus.
