Occasionally, I'll find an ethnic restaurant that makes me feel like an expatriate in my own country. These are places firmly rooted in another culture, resistant to American attitude, and clearly catering to a different demographic. Zhong Shan Restaurant on Park Avenue is such a place. It has the feel of somebody else's home away from home. And the most tangible agent of the you're-not-in-Kansas vibe is the flat screen TV. First of all, it seems out of place in a formal dining room.

It's not San Francisco, where thousands of people get to see a 250-foot-long golden dragon weaving its way through the streets every year. It's not Washington, where city officials closed down H Street last Sunday to make room for fireworks, kung fu demonstrations and the usual big parade. But if you want to celebrate the Chinese New Year without leaving Anne Arundel County, your best bet might be a vibrant little martial arts academy in the rear of an otherwise ordinary-looking industrial park in Arnold.

A contemporary Chinese artist helped a private school in Baltimore County dedicate its Confucius Classroom on Monday. Wu Ching-ju, speaking through an interpreter, opened the ceremony at Garrison Forest School, an all-girls elementary through high school in Owings Mills. With a slide show of her graceful sculptures playing in the background, the artist related the story of her life steeped in "curiosity for the world" and a determination to succeed. She listened to a student concert, toured the classroom filled with Chinese artwork and offered her insights to a sculpting class.

When the Chu San Chinese Opera Institute bows at the Many Moons Festival on Sunday, audience members will be able to tell the personalities of the characters on stage simply by looking into their faces. According to traditions developed more than 3,000 years ago, characters wearing red makeup will invariably be intelligent, courageous, loyal and full of integrity. Black greasepaint represents firmness of purpose and honesty, while those with blue visages will prove stubborn and intractable.

About three dozen students formed rows in the Duncan Hall lobby of Howard Community College and staged an impromptu demonstration of tai chi, a Chinese martial art known for its slow but precise movements. Some students were clearly novices, yet their cadence showed that, at the very least, they were fast learners. The students are enrolled in an intensive summer language program called STARTALK, a federal government initiative designed to increase the number of Americans learning so-called "critical need" languages.

Thousands of U.S. homes tainted by Chinese drywall should be completely gutted, according to new guidelines released Friday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The guidelines say electrical wiring, outlets, circuit breakers, fire alarm systems, carbon monoxide alarms, fire sprinklers, gas pipes and drywall need to be removed. About 3,000 homeowners have reported problems with the Chinese-made drywall. The agency continues to investigate possible health effects, but preliminary studies have found a possible link between throat, nose and lung irritation and high levels of hydrogen sulfide gas emitted from the wallboard, coupled with formaldehyde, commonly found in new houses.

If the world of Chinese restaurants can be divided between those with chopsticks on the tables and those with silverware, Wing Wah Restaurant in Pikesville is a knife-and-fork kind of place. Tucked among storefronts on the 500 block of Reisterstown Road, Wing Wah serves generous portions of moderately priced, mildly flavored Chinese fare. It has a neighborhood feel to it, starting with the signs on the entry doors that warn you not to park in the nearby Jiffy Lube lot, lest you be towed.

Hummer, the off-road vehicle that once symbolized America's love for hulking SUVs, faces a shutdown after its sale to a Chinese heavy equipment maker collapsed. Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co. said Wednesday it pulled out of the deal to buy the company from General Motors Co. Tengzhong failed to get clearance from Chinese regulators within the proposed time frame for the sale, the Chinese manufacturer said. GM said it will continue to honor existing Hummer warranties. "GM will now work closely with Hummer employees, dealers and suppliers to wind down the business in an orderly and responsible manner," said John Smith, GM vice president of corporate planning and alliances.

Imagine "McCabe & Mrs. Miller," "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" and "Deadwood" hand-stitched together and given a novel slant as a mini-epic of Chinese immigrant life. That suggests the polyglot vitality of Baltimore writer Christopher Corbett's new nonfiction book, "The Poker Bride." An unofficial follow-up to his rollicking frontier saga, "Orphans Preferred: The Twisted Truth and Lasting Legend of The Pony Express" (2003), "The Poker Bride," a juicy combination of social history and deconstructed myth, pivots on the fact-based Old West legend of Polly Bemis.
