Joey Vento, the legendary and legendarily cantankerous owner of one of Philadelphia's two famous-because-they're-famous legendary cheesesteak stands, died yesterday from a massive heart attack. Check out this great video by Baltimore photographer Marty Katz. There must be places in Baltimore as inexplicable to outsiders as are Philadelphia's Geno's Steaks and Pat's King of Steaks.

I read and enjoyed the obituary for William Donald Schaefer in the April 19, 2001 edition ("Former governor and mayor changed the face of Baltimore"). It was just like remembering a family member. However, I must take exception to one line: "Mr. Schaefer had no survivors. " While I understand the context of that line in an obituary, my city fits that bill on many, many levels.

KANSAS CITY, MO. -- The Orioles will attempt an unprecedented climb out of a 2-0 hole as the American League Championship Series shifts to Kauffman Stadium. It won't be easy because the Kansas City Royals are a team brimming with confidence. The Royals arrived home having won all six of their postseason games - pulling out two tightly-contested wins over the Orioles at Camden Yards with their share of late-inning hits and celebratory histrionics - to put the Orioles' season on the brink.

Baltimore lawmakers had tough questions for Caesars executives during a Friday morning delegation meeting in Annapolis, with elected officials grilling the gambling giant on its commitment to the city. At issue is Caesars' support for legislation that would allow a sixth casino in Maryland -- a mega gambling palace potentially at National Harbor in Prince George's County that many believe would suck business from Baltimore. The company's position has led some lawmakers to believe Caesars is eying bidding there and abandoning their city proposal.

If you think present-day Baltimore has problems, travel a few centuries into the future and check out B-Mor, author Chang-Rae Lee's even more dystopian imagining of our city. In Lee's new novel, "On Such a Full Sea," the city's current crop of residents have long since died out or moved on, leaving blocks of vacant homes with murals of sky painted on boarded-up windows. Immigrants from "New China" then settled the city, renaming North Milton Avenue "Longevity Way," revitalizing blocks of vacant rowhouses, clearing the "huge city cemetery," planting "grow beds" and constructing massive fish tanks.

Promising to deliver a more cohesive government to City Hall and cleaner streets to city neighborhoods, Sheila Dixon was sworn in yesterday as Baltimore's 48th mayor in an inauguration that celebrated recent progress but repeatedly acknowledged the daunting challenges ahead. "I don't think for one second this is going to be easy. I think we've grown accustomed to explaining away problems instead of solving them," Dixon said inside the cavernous War Memorial Building. "But I don't think any of us wants Baltimore to be known as the city that knows how to make excuses."

The Baltimore Development Corp., the city's economic development agency, is looking for an outside consultant to provide an analysis of the city's "economic development landscape," according to a request for applications issued Tuesday. The consultant is being asked to assess the city's "existing economic conditions, obstacles, opportunities for expansion, and strengths," as well as identify "priorities and options to move the City's economy forward" and figure out a way "to track the success of new initiatives in terms of job growth, investment, and economic impact," according to the request for proposals.

In reference to the front page article on Oct. 7, "$1 fare eyed for free buses," I for one will not use the Charm City Circular if $1 charge is imposed; that's only one way, so the cost is really $2. I have a hybrid car, but in my opinion having a hybrid vehicle does not mean I can still drive because I use less gas and cause less damage to the atmosphere; no, it means that I too still have to drive less. The $1 (two-way, $2) charge is way more then the cost of me driving my hybrid.

The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 2 of the American League Championship Series between the Orioles and the Kansas City Royals. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles now have a tremendous mountain to climb in Kansas City down two games to none as the ALCS shifts to Kauffman Stadium. The Orioles hadn't lost consecutive home games since June 28-29. And if they were able to get anything out of a one-out, bases-loaded situation in the seventh inning, Game 2 might have turned out different.

It wasn't long after Ashley Overbey won approval for a $63,000 settlement from Baltimore's government that anonymous critics began their assault against her on the Internet. Commenting on news accounts of the settlement - which ended her lawsuit alleging police brutality - they accused the 27-year-old of initiating her arrest to get a big payout. She responded, defending herself and recounting details of the incident - a move that led the city to withhold $31,500 from Overbey's payout this week.

A recent column concerning the city of Baltimore's announced decision to sue me, individually, and other citizens was grossly misleading and incomplete. It failed to mention some important information that would reveal that there's another side to this story. The article claimed that the Canton Urban Renewal Plan requires that a land-based promenade be installed along the harbor. In fact, the only obligation set forth in the Urban Renewal Plan is that the promenade be "permanent."

The city's design panel on Thursday approved a master plan for a large mixed use development in East Baltimore opposite the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The proposal by developer MCB Real Estate LLC calls for two buildings along Eastern Avenue: a six-story apartment building, with ground floor retail and an interior courtyard, and a smaller, one-story shoppping structure, with a large 250-spot parking lot farther east. If market demand is strong, MCB could create a taller mixed-use site in place of the smaller building.
