Yum's Asian Bistro has opened in Charles Village on the corner of Charles and 25th, where New No Da Ji was  for years and years. Before New No Da Ji (or No Da Ji as it was originallly known), there was Love's, which had been on that corner ever longer, for about 50 years beginning in 1942. The bad news: the old New Do Da Ji buffet is gone. The good news: Yum is a very pretty place to sit down for good old American Chinese food encompassing a half century or so of Cantonese, Szechwan and Hunan favorites.

I along with thousands of others wish to reach out to the residents who homes and belongings were devastated as a result of the horrible landslide along 26th Street in Charles Village ( "Deluge causes landslide in Charles Village, floods roadways across state," May 1). The reports indicate that the occupants in this area had been complaining for years over the weakening of this retaining wall. Unfortunately, to prove the residents' point it finally took a loud blast from Mother Nature that included more than seven inches of rain over a two-day period that literally destroyed the foundation of the whole area.

Residents of East 26th Street in Charles Village are seeking compensation from the city and CSX Transportation for damages suffered when they were displaced from their homes by a landslide in April that sent half their block crumbling onto railroad tracks below. The residents have hired teams of attorneys at three law firms, who have asked the city and railroad operator to meet them at the negotiating table or see them in court. They contend they should have been at the negotiating table when the city and CSX hashed out an agreement to split the cost of fixing the street.

The reactions triggered by the Board of Estimates' recent approval of a study of the feasibility of converting St. Paul and Calvert streets back to two-way traffic have demonstrated that this city is at a crossroads. Policies are changing and new ideas are emerging, yet there is still a significant obstacle ahead of us: challenging outdated mentalities. Forty years of car-centric urban planning have turned Baltimore into one of the most congested areas in the country, but some still argue that solutions lie in rush-hour parking restrictions and signal optimization.

City officials promised to cover the financial costs to the Charles Village residents displaced by the collapse of East 26th Street, and that tab now sits just shy of $100,000, city officials said Thursday. It will continue to grow, as well, even though the residents are back in their homes. The costs — mostly for hotel rooms for the residents of the 19 homes that were evacuated — are in addition to the city's $18.5 million estimate for the street's reconstruction, said Caron Brace, a spokeswoman for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, whose office released the figures.

Baltimore's food truck industry will be able to petition Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's administration for additional places to sell their fares, under a bill approved Monday by the City Council. The legislation calls on the Department of General Services to create new "food truck zones," while also allowing the mobile vendors to operate on streets throughout the city as long as they adhere to meter restrictions, said Babila Lima, a special assistant who is guiding the process for the city.

The Baltimore City Council gave preliminary approval Monday to a bill that would allow the city's growing food truck industry to operate in more places. The rewritten bill is an about-face from an earlier version of the legislation, which sought to limit the vendors to specified "food truck zones. " The bill backed Monday still would create new zones for the trucks but continue to allow them at meters on streets throughout the city. Damian Bohager, president of the Maryland Mobile Food Vendors Association, said the group fought hard to make sure opportunities weren't limited.
