The Baltimore City Council postponed action Monday on a bill that would have banned the use of foam cups and containers for carryout food and drinks after several members withdrew their support. Councilman James B. Kraft, the bill's chief sponsor, said he is still hopeful Baltimore can become the first major East Coast city to adopt such a ban. Kraft, who represents Canton, Little Italy and Fells Point, said some council members expressed concern that the city needs to work toward a cultural shift that changes individual behaviors on littering, rather than a government edict.

If it's true that what goes around comes around, Crystal Jenkins Jones says she now knows that better than most. Last year, she says, her cousin was one of two people who shot and killed a 72-year-old security guard picking up Chinese food at a carryout on Greenmount Avenue. And on Monday night, Jones' 52-year-old husband, Freddie, was slain in a robbery at the same place. "The death last year happened from a family member of mine," Jones, 43, said Wednesday, standing in a nearby parking lot. "It'll come back to you if somebody takes a life from someone, and it just so happened a life was taken from me. " Baltimore homicide detectives canvassed the Better Waverly, Harwood and Abell neighborhoods of North Baltimore on Wednesday morning in hopes of drumming up tips in the killing of Freddie Jones Jr., an Army veteran and shuttle-bus driver at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

A 52-year-old man died after being shot during a robbery at a carryout restaurant in Better Waverly on Monday night, renewing concerns in the community about the crime connected to the beleaguered business. The Yau Brothers carryout, in the 2900 block of Greenmount Ave., was closed Tuesday, as it was after similar shooting incidents in the past two years: In 2010, 72-year-old security guard Charles Bowman was fatally shot in a robbery there, a year after three men were shot following a fight that broke out inside.

Fed up with foam cups floating in Baltimore's waterways, a City Council committee voted Tuesday to approve a ban on polystyrene foam products for carryout food and drink items within the city limits. The measure, sponsored by Councilman James B. Kraft, would impose penalties on food service businesses for using products such as Styrofoam. It will now go to the full council Monday for a vote. "No food service facility may use any disposable food service ware made from polystyrene for the purpose of allowing consumers to take away prepared foods or beverages from its premises," Kraft's bill states.

A Baltimore teenager pleaded guilty to murder Monday as his trial was set to begin, following a failed attempt last week to have a confession withheld from jurors in the case. Markell Shelton Jones, 18, shot and killed Freddie Jones Jr. at the Yau Brothers Chinese carryout on Greenmount Avenue on Halloween 2011 during a bungled robbery attempt. The attack was captured on surveillance cameras and police released the footage to the press. After Markell Jones' family recognized him on television, his grandfather called police to have him taken into custody, according to testimony at a motions hearing last week.

A Baltimore Circuit Court judge ruled that a jury will be able to hear the taped confession of a teenage defendant in a murder case, rejecting his lawyers' claim that the police had coerced the statement from him. Markell Shelton Jones and his mother, Lakisha Jones, testified Monday that they had been influenced by police, an argument Robert Linthicum, Jones' attorney, made again Tuesday. "The whole thing basically reeks of coercion," he said. But Judge M. Brooke Murdock said police had done nothing improper in the way they conducted the interviews and said she did not find the defendant's mother credible.

The family of 17-year-old Markell Jones was watching the television news one night in November 2011, authorities say, when the broadcaster introduced surveillance tape footage of the killing of an Army veteran inside a Greenmount Avenue carryout. Relatives recognized Jones on the tape, authorities say. After talking it over, they called police, and Markell gave a full confession - and a written letter of apology to the victim's daughter. It appeared to be a clean, closed case.

Antoine Darnell Phipps, 30, was sentenced to life in prison plus 25 years for shooting a carryout customer outside a West Baltimore restaurant in August 2010 because he was "angered by a mistaken food order," the Baltimore State's Attorney's Office announced Thursday. Phipps waited outside the "Sumtin Fishee" eatery on the corner of Strickland and Baltimore streets and ambushed Roger Jones as the man walked to his motorcycle, the prosecutor's office said. Jones was shot in his right hip and left arm. A Baltimore jury convicted Phipps, of the 1500 block of W. Fayette St., of attempted murder and related handgun crimes in January.

Working near the Inner Harbor has its advantages around mealtime. In addition to the restaurants and food stalls in Harborplace, there are numerous eateries for blocks in any direction. One of the more exotic options is Afghan Kabob, which opened four months ago in a sunny space at the corner of Lombard and Charles streets. The menu is small, and so is the space in this glorified carryout. But the food and service far exceed the quality of the average glorified carryout. In fact, both are better than some of the more formal places I've been to in the neighborhood.
