If I had to vote on which food store I would like to see at the Rotunda, I would vote for Graul's Market. My reason is simple: Graul's is a full-service market. Retirement communities and apartment buildings, all inhabited by senior citizens, surround the Rotunda. St. Mary's Roland View Towers is a two-building complex near the intersection of Roland Avenue and 40th Street. Roland Park Place and Keswick Multi-Care are right across from the Rotunda on 40th Street. Many who live and work in those complexes depended on the Giant for groceries until it moved down the hill.

Shirtless, hair flowing, legs pumping, Dr. Theodore Houk is a familiar sight running along North Charles Street on his twice-daily, 5.5-mile trek between his Lutherville home and his job at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. "You always see him out there," said Kathleen Wrona, who has seen Houk, an internal medicine specialist, often during her commute. On Thursday, she saw him again, witnessing as the vehicle in front of her struck Houk, critically injuring him and sending him to Maryland Shock Trauma Center via helicopter.

Police shut down a section of South Charles Street near Cross Street Market in Federal Hill Saturday night after a sea of purple flooded the street following the Raven's win over the Denver Broncos. Barricades were set up at the intersection of South Charles and West Hamburg streets, and southbound traffic was held up for several blocks. The police helicopter, Foxtrot, was called in to broadcast the message that revelers needed to disperse. Officers - on foot, horseback and in vehicles - saturated the area around the market.

A stretch of Charles Street that was damaged and closed after a 90-year-old water main broke beneath it and sent torrents of water downhill two weeks ago was reopened Wednesday night, according to Baltimore's Department of Public Works. The stretch reopened - "just in time for holiday travel," the city said - about 8:20 p.m., after being closed between W. North Avenue and W. 21st Street in the city's Charles North neighborhood Nov. 7. All sidewalks, road surfaces and utilities on the street damaged by the break are also fixed, the department said.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was spot-on in her assessment of Wednesday's water main break when she pleaded for more funds to support the area's aging infrastructure ("Water infrastructure becomes a priority," Nov. 8). Unfortunately, scenarios like the flooding are along Charles Street are all too common. Many communities are struggling to solve their water woes, but federal funding for these systems has dwindled, creating a $29 billion gap that prevents municipalities from fixing their infrastructure.

After a day in which they temporarily became waterfront businesses, shops and cafes on North Charles Street began reopening Thursday, when the river created by a massive water main break at 20th Street receded. While several blocks remained closed to vehicular traffic, pedestrians, bicyclists and the occasional skateboarder enjoyed the dry pavement and fewer speeding cars. About 450 moviegoers headed into the Charles Theater for a talk and screening with director Oliver Stone. Restaurants welcomed back the business they lost to Wednesday's gusher from a 60-inch, 90-year-old broken main.
