Recently, a letter writer to our sister paper echoed the frustration of thousands of local motorists when he suggested that the city simply give up all pretense of progress in the seemingly endless construction on the Cold Spring bridge and ramps for the Jones Falls Expressway. Instead, he wrote, perhaps the city could use the site to erect a sculpture with an inscription reading, "Abandon hope, all ye who used to enter."The Jones Falls project is not the only trial facing motorists on Cold Spring Lane.

A Family Dollar store is slated to open this fall as an anchor tenant in Cold Spring Shopping Center in Baltimore, the chain announced. Family Dollar Stores Inc. signed a lease for nearly 9,000 square feet in the center at Cold Spring Lane and Loch Raven Boulevard, owned by Schwaber Holdings. The Matthews, N.C.-based chain is being acquired by Dollar Tree Inc. in an $8.5 billion merger announced last week that would create North America's biggest dollar store chain. Family Dollar sells mostly lower-margin consumables such as food and household products priced between $1 to $5 and targets urban shoppers in lower-income neighborhoods.

Three light rail stations in North Baltimore — Mount Washington, Cold Spring and Woodberry — will be closed for three weeks of emergency repairs starting Friday as crews work to shore up significant track-side soil erosion, the Maryland Transit Administration said Wednesday. Rail service through the stations will be halted, and buses will shuttle riders between the Falls Road and North Avenue stations through July 11, the agency said. The closures overlap with a 13-game homestand by the Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards downtown and the Inner Harbor's annual Fourth of July celebration — two major drivers of transit use to and from the suburbs north of the city.

For several weeks, an experienced recreational crabber in my part of the world has been setting his trotline down toward the creek mouth and getting mixed results. A bushel one day, a dozen or two the next several days.The season, he says, is way behind this year and he can't figure the rhyme or reason of it.The reason apparently is as simple as it is uncontrollable, says William P. Jensen of the Department of Natural Resources Tidewater Fisheries Division."We think of the blue crab as the ultimate biological animal," Jensen said yesterday.
