Barry Levinson showed in "Diner" that "greasy-spoon" restaurants not only define neighborhoods but individual lives and changing times as well. That's why the closing of Brooklyn Park's White Coffee Pot this Sunday night robs the North Arundel neighborhood not only of a relic of 1950s Americana but also some of its lovable characters.What will happen to Pat Carraway, for example? She was 16 when she joined the White Coffee Pot chain 30 years ago. Will she ever again be asking, "More coffee, babe?"

Buck Showalter is in need of some coffee. The Orioles manager pops a plastic cup into the well of a newfangled instant coffee maker in the visiting clubhouse at Tropicana Field, not hesitating to say it pales in comparison with the old-school percolating coffee pot back in his office at Camden Yards. The season is long, and he's tired. His right knee hurts, and in a few moments he will have an ice wrap on it the size of large melon as he hobbles around on the second-to-last day of baseball's grueling 162-game regular season.

Today, members of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company will lay to rest their longest-serving colleague: Fire Chief Emeritus Millard Purcell, whose death Friday at the age of 88 ended a 65-year career during which he responded to 35,416 calls -- nearly 2,000...

Barely 9 a.m., and already the place is rocking.Little Richard croons "Good Golly Miss Molly" on the jukebox. Clouds of smoke rise from the counter as the regulars take their places on stools with curved orange-and-red vinyl backs. Pat Carraway, clad in black polyester pants and a blue cotton top, bolts from counter to table, pulling out her pad and talking almost as fast as she moves."More coffee, babe?" she asks yet another customer as she slides past a table at the White Coffee Pot in Brooklyn Park.

At any Mexican bakery, whether in Mexico or the United States, you'll find an irresistible assortment of "pan dulces," sweet breads with various toppings. What goes best with these tempting pastries is a cup of Chocolate Mexicano (Mexican-style hot chocolate) or Cafe de Olla ("pot coffee," so called because it's simmered in the coffee pot). The comforting cocoa can be made with milk or water. While purists might use a "molinillo" (a carved wooden beater) to froth the chocolate, you can use a whisk or a blender.

But tomorrow a 30,000-square-foot flea market will open, marking another effort to revitalize the 40-year-old strip mall.Four local entrepreneurs hope to turn the former dilapidated space with graffiti-covered walls and broken windows into a bargain-hunter's dream.

Q. Please end an argument in our household. My husband is a coffee hound. He can't start the day without two or three cups, and he keeps the coffee pot going all day long. He works from home and usually keeps a cup of coffee on the desk right next to his computer. He must consume six or eight cups a day. I prefer tea. Whenever I suggest he cut back, he says I drink as much tea as he drinks coffee. According to him, that means I'm getting just as much caffeine. But I think tea is good for you and coffee is bad. I sure could use some ammunition for this discussion.

Woolworth store before it closed its doors in January. Instead of searching for another job, or shedding tears over the demise of the five-and-dime's classic lunch counter, she decided to take a big risk, buy its equipment and open her own place.
