A second man has been arrested and charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of a Cheesecake Factory employee during an early morning fight near the Inner Harbor restaurant, Baltimore Police said Tuesday. The move to arrest Derek Schuler, 24, of Glen Burnie, contradicts previous statements from police that he had tried to diffuse the situation and wouldn't be arrested. According to new charging documents, Schuler had in fact joined in the April 7 fight that left 20-year-old Anthony Black bleeding profusely in front of the World Trade Center building downtown.

A slice of Cheesecake is on its way to The Mall in Columbia. The Howard County Planning Board this week approved site development plans for the Cheesecake Factory, a California-based restaurant chain that could become a trendy draw for Columbia's downtown. "This is good news," said County Councilman Ken Ulman, a west Columbia Democrat. "When I hear people mention the types of retailers ignoring Columbia, they mention Cheesecake Factory." Construction plans for the 10,500-square-foot Cheesecake Factory have not been made final, said Karen Geary, manager of the mall.

Just as the restaurant industry is growing at its slowest pace in a decade and rivals are scaling back expansion plans, Cheesecake Factory Inc. has plans to grow more aggressively than ever. The Calabasas Hills, Calif.-based chain's strategy of serving huge portions, offering variety and opening restaurants in affluent neighborhoods will no doubt be tested in the midst of a sluggish economy and declines in eating out. The chain of 52 Cheesecake Factory outlets - including one in Baltimore's Inner Harbor - and two upscale Grand Lux Cafe restaurants hopes to open 11 namesake outlets and one Grand Lux by year's end. Chief Executive Officer David Overton recently said the company could grow to 200 restaurants in the United States, up from a previous estimate of 150. Cheesecake Factory executives said the time is right to expand, because consumers have a big appetite for its offerings.

It's in the business of churning out millions of meals to millions of people, all of whom have decided to eat there on the same day and at the same time you have.

Hallie Day, a 24-year-old waitress at the the Cheesecake Factory in Towson, made it into the semi-finals on "American Idol" and will compete in a live telecast Wednesday. Day, who lives in Nottingham, says she hasn't sung much professionally, and her appearance Wednesday  will be her first with an audience that size. "I performed with the Jazz Caravan, a jazz band, one time," she said. "And then, I led worship at Second Presbyterian Church in Towson. Other than that, I haven't really performed a lot. So, a lot of this is very new to me. " Day, who says her favorite genre is "soul" music, says she started singing in church at age 5. "I loved the little solos that I would get, and I think that's maybe when the diva started to come out," she said with a laugh.

The meathead and floozy fest that is "Jersey Shore" returns for a second season this week. For those who somehow missed the pop culture sensation that is the show, it's essentially the peek that you didn't really want into the buzzed and vapid lives of young people on a mission to deflower most of the Garden State. There's more nocturnal wildlife in one episode than an entire season of "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom," insane levels of tanning, enough hairspray to knock a new hole in the ozone and, perhaps most notable, a six-pack on one guy that's so serious he's named it. In anticipation of even more of all of this, we can't help but wonder why Jersey gets these bragging rights.

Extra work by the Ravens' secondary has led to an increase in interceptions and some more housework for cornerback Domonique Foxworth. Once a week, the defensive backs have met at Foxworth's home for a couple of hours of film study. They bring their own food - from Taco Bell to the Cheesecake Factory - and talk about recognizing tendencies and playing certain coverages. By the end of the night, the players leave with a boost in confidence, but they also leave a mess. "They don't clean up after themselves, which is a problem," said Foxworth, whose Ravens play the Chicago Bears at 4:15 p.m. today at M&T Bank Stadium.
