A 40-foot cabin cruiser was completely destroyed Wednesday, when it caught fire, while berthed at the Anchorage Marina in Canton. Multiple fire units responded at 3:40 p.m. to the pier in the 2500 block of Boston Street, city fire officials said. Crews isolated the boat in the water to prevent the fire from jumping to other nearby boats and brought the blaze under control by 4:05 p.m., said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a fire spokesman. No firefighter was injured. No one was on the boat at the time and no other boats at the marina were damaged, officials said.

Cars are 16 feet long. Row houses are 11 to 14 feet long. OK, my shoes are 1 foot long, my bike is 5. So walk or bike. Oh, wait: People are thinking they must use cars and the city must provide parking? Pretty silly. Theodore Houk, Lutherville Text NEWS to 70701 to get Baltimore Sun local news text alerts

Remember the American officer in Vietnam who famously said he had to destroy a village in order to save it? Welcome to Boston Street, on the west side of Canton, where they're beginning to understand such language of contradiction.Take Harry Lewis, for example. He's sitting by the window of Harry's Cafe Mediterraneo, which he opened in July 1995, and pointing to a crater in the street that could be spotted on a clear day from the moon."See that?" he says. "You could fit a whole car into that, and that's the thing that's killing us."

In its aim and ambition, Moonshine Tavern is nothing like the Gin Mill, the cozy Canton bar and restaurant it replaced after nearly 16 years of service. Like many of the nearby bars on Boston Street, the Gin Mill was more of a casual place for dinner and drinks than a hot spot. I talked to Moonshine Tavern co-owner Shanna Cooper in January, and it was clear that she and partner Jacob Millisock hoped to make Gin Mill a distant memory. "We're not looking to be a hole-in-the-wall bar," Cooper said.

The Baltimore City Fire Department battled a three-alarm fire at a warehouse at 1200 Baylis St. in the Canton area late into the night Sunday, bringing it under control around midnight. Capt. Roman Clark, a department spokesman, said about 60 residents in the block were evacuated. No homes were involved in the fire, but heavy smoke and the fire's proximity to residences spurred the evacuation, said Chief Kevin Cartwright. An MTA bus was called to shelter residents. Power was also out in the immediate area.

Laura Mooney has made a fresh start in her second Canton home since 2003. Her idea was to simplify her life and downsize while remaining in the East Baltimore neighborhood she has lived in for the last 11 years. Her newly renovated Canton home, which she moved into four weeks ago, is a symbol of newfound liberation, she said. "This house is light, airy and clutter-free; that's my aesthetic," Mooney said. That aesthetic has a welcoming effect. A distressed wooden sign set in a wrought-iron stand at the foot of her winding staircase says it all: "Bonjour!"

The recommendation to open a new elementary/middle school in Canton is drawing opposition from the community and the popular charter school that would be its neighbor. The proposed school, which would serve pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, was part of a large-scale plan rolled out by Interim CEO Tisha Edwards earlier this month. The plan would open a new school to alleviate overcrowding in Southeast Baltimore schools, Edwards said, while also moving a current school -- Friendship Academy of Science and Technology middle/high school -- whose students have been causing a stir in the community.
