I have lived in the Canton area for 55 years and have been a city resident for 63 years. My husband and I raised two daughters here, who in their adult lives decided to buy homes in the Canton area. We are all within walking distance of each other. However, our youngest daughter, who has two young children, recently decided that Baltimore City - and Canton in particular - are no longer safe places to raise her children. As her parents, this saddens us. We never thought it would come to this.

A Columbia-based real estate developer wants to build four glassy office buildings on its waterfront property in Canton, a project that could create a kind of Harbor farther East. Corporate Office Properties Trust's proposal calls for shopping, restaurants and four buildings with about 250,000 square feet of offices on top of several stories of parking, said Stephen Budorick, the real estate investment trust's executive vice president and chief operating officer. The company has no time frame for when the project could begin because it is seeking tenants before committing to construction, Budorick said.

The Scunny Memorial Paddle, which ran from Sept. 16 to 21, turned out to be even less fun than Christopher Furst, a marketing director for Power Plant Live, thought it would be. And the novice kayaker didn't go in expecting the 175-mile kayak trip was going to be a day at the beach. "In all honesty, it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I've played every sport, baseball, football," Furst said, "but this was sheer endurance, paddling eight hours a day in an uncomfortable position.

For what reason is Highlandtown now called Canton? I live in Harford County now but grew up in Highlandtown near Haussner's restaurant and Eastern Avenue. I went to school at Sacred Heart of Jesus in Highlandtown. Highlandtown was in the higher elevation in Baltimore with boundaries that included Hudson Street and Fait Street up to Dean Street and the underpass next to Greektown and from Pratt and Baltimore Streets to Patterson Park Avenue and around the park. Canton was always further south down to Boston Street and the water.

BangBang Mongolian Grill opens officially on Wednesday in the Can Company space that formerly housed the Austin Grill. Based in West Des Moines, Iowa, BangBang announced its expansion into the Baltimore area last July. The Canton location is the first to open on the East Coast. Another location is set to open at the Hilltop Plaza on Annapolis Road in Bowie sometime in late February or early March 2012. Promoting a "design-your-own-meal" concept, Bang Bang lets customers select from a list of proteins and vegetables, season their dish to taste and watch it as their meal is seared on Bang Bang's signature circular grill.

In response to Lila Johnson's recent letter concerning the future of the "grand dame" row houses of the city ("A newcomer's search for a place to call home," Dec. 4), it is wonderful to hear someone from another state appreciate the beauty of Baltimore. I would also love to see the old houses on Harford Road, Biddle Street and East North Avenue renovated. I think the best way to have this happen is to start with the renovation of a row home in a neighborhood such as Canton, Fells Point or Butcher's Hill.

CANTON IS no longer strictly a location; it is a state of mind. Last year, a new Italian restaurant, Soprano's, took over Winterling's space after that 77-year-old Highlandtown standby went out of business. There was no change in address. But Soprano's wanted an upscale location. It announced it was in Canton. Is Patterson Park next? Will it junk the name that honors a merchant prince and Revolutionary War blockade runner and become Canton Gardens? "No way," promises community activist Ed Rutkowski.

In honor of Patrick 'Scunny' McCusker, restaurants and bars in an around O'Donnell Square in Canton will be donating 30 percent of all daily sales on Wednesday to Believe in Tomorrow Children's Foundation. McCusker was perhaps best known as the owner of Nacho Mama's, the Tex Mex restaurant he opened in 1994 on O'Donnell Street in Canton, which was then unfamiliar territory. But he has also been lauded, in the days, following his death, as a tireless philanthropist. He was particularly devoted to Believe in Tomorrow National Children's Foundation, a Baltimore-based nonprofit that provides hospital and housing services to critically ill children and their families.

A Canton condominium owned by Baltimore author Tom Clancy is slated for settlement next month, according to court documents. The Clancy estate is the subject of a legal battle between his widow and the former executor. The 2,379-square-foot unit in the Canton Cove building on Boston Street came under contract for $660,000 in September.  The court approved a petition to sell the property Sept. 17, a day after attorneys for J.W. Thompson Webb sought permission for the deal.

The article "City, county agree to help pay for Red Line as cost rises to $2.9 billion" (Aug. 26) was disturbing. As one who was born and raised in the area, I remember well the many trains moving along Fleet Street and Aliceanna Streets when automobile traffic (crossing both north and south) would come to a complete halt. While waiting for the box cars to pass, there were times they would then be reversed in moving - thereby doubling your wait time to cross. Many houses on both sides of the streets took the brunt from the heavy trains causing them to vibrate and shake.

Regarding your editorial about unaccompanied children from Central America illegally crossing our borders, what's wrong with them stopping and settling in Mexico? ( "Death by deportation," Aug. 24). Central and South Americans (and there are lots of them) are passing through Mexico anyway to get up here and they already speak Spanish in Mexico, so why don't they remain there instead continuing on to the U.S.? Mexico is a big country and not completely crime-ridden by any means.

For years, Silks, the bar at the corner of Hudson Street and South Lakewood Avenue in Canton, was mostly overlooked. It was just another corner bar you'd walk past on the way to someplace else. But now, after a two-and-a-half-year renovation, Silks has reinvented itself as a welcoming neighborhood spot. With a good, revolving beer selection, an appealing menu that focuses on pub-friendly food and smiling faces behind the bar, it's giving local residents a reason to do more than walk on by. Scene & Decor Aesthetically, Silks has cleaned up its act, transforming its run-down space into something fresh and attractive.

Maybe it's the below-average temperatures this summer, or maybe I'm already looking forward to fall, but lately I've been intrigued by bars and restaurants using warm ingredients in unusually refreshing ways. By warm, I don't mean hot. I mean rich, comforting, spiced. Don't call it a trend, but I've perceived a bit of a … well, a popular concept. That's easy to do when you have companies like Art in the Age making liquors out of sage, root, rhubarb and gingersnap. The challenge is crafting the right recipe around a savory spirit.

I'm sure some folks see The Shops at Canton Crossing, the glitzy new 325,000-square-foot retail center on Boston Street, as a troubling sign that the tastes and attitudes of the suburbs are encroaching on our treasured city ways. Not me, friends. I say, encroach away. For instance, just a few weeks ago, I went to Canton Crossing for about an hour and came away with a pack of socks, a cake carrier, three cheap polo shirts, and three boxes of Nabisco's Famous Chocolate Wafers. Before Canton Crossing, it would have taken days to find all that stuff in the city.

Delmarva's Southern Cafe is set to open Friday in Canton. The new comfort food restaurant, located in the Harbor Enterprise Center, also known as the Broom Factory, will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. And they will serve breakfast at dinner, if you get my drift. On the menu - biscuit sandwiches, baked cheese skillets,  country-fried rib eye, cheesy shrimp and grits, burgers and Tenderjack's chicken tenders, a specialty at Tenderjack's, the Virginia-based restaurants Delmarva's owners, Paul Stratmeyer and David Levitt, have a share in. Levitt was an owner of the Tenderjack's in Leesburg, Va., with two other partners.
