Much of the draw of a small, neighborhood grocery store is the neighborliness it fosters. In the Roland Park area we've had several over time. Graul's once sat where Eddie's on Roland Avenue is today. Graul's was also farther down Roland in the space where Roland Park Wine & Liquor is. Victor's sat at the center of the Roland Park Shopping Center, and the A&P at the corner of Roland and Colorado Avenues. Today Eddie's on Roland Avenue is the only small grocery store in the Roland Park area.

The conversion of a modest rowhouse into a bar inherits a problem with no obvious solution: What to do with such a limited space? These types of bars often rely on cosmetic tweaks like fresh paintjobs or new light fixtures to convey change. The results are usually improvements - recent examples include Shotti's Point in Riverside, Canton's Silks and Cockey's in Upper Fells Point - but rarely do these new businesses feel like drastic transformations. Bar Liquorice is a recent exception.

With Cary Williams apparently set to start at cornerback, speculation has intensified on who will start at the other spot in the Ravens' season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. One candidate, rookie Jimmy Smith, said after Friday's practice that he has not received any confirmation that he could be the other starter. Asked if he'd like to know sooner rather than later, Smith said, “It doesn't matter. If I'm starting, I'm starting. But I'll be going in with the same mentality anyway.” Smith, the organization's first-round pick in April, is a big, physical talent who can match up with the Steelers' speedy corps of wide receivers.

At Linden Market in Reservoir Hill, shelves are heaped high with miniature pies, cupcakes, and candy. Three dozen flavors of salty snacks burst from cardboard boxes. Around the corner at the Whitelock Community Farm, deep green leaves of chard fan from raised beds, cucumber vines wind up trellises and Japanese eggplants resembling glossy purple commas dangle from stalks. Beginning this week, the corner store and the farm, which are just a couple of blocks apart, will forge an unlikely partnership.

Life is full of surprises. They make life interesting. The past two weeks have been filled with a mix of good and bad surprises. On the bright side, the Baltimore City Department of Transportation has been a model of good communication, responsive action and careful work on the recurbing and repaving of Ridgewood Road. Well in advance of beginning the project, the DOT left residents written notices of the upcoming work. The phone number on that paper changed by the time I called with questions, but the person who answered was helpful.

Slowly, winter 2014 thaws. Very slowly. We will likely need all spring and summer to recover. Our house and immediate surroundings are a case in point.  Most obvious are the potholes and ruts on the JFX and city streets. They remind me of virulent outbreaks of chicken pox each spring of my childhood. Potholes are everywhere; perhaps the outward and visible signs of post winter traumatic disorder, from which streets, infrastructure and people are suffering. PWTD seems greater than usual.

The federal government plans to shift the cost of accepting food stamps to retailers in the coming weeks, a move that Baltimore officials and anti-hunger advocates said Tuesday could make it harder for some families to buy groceries. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and her administration are working with advocacy groups to inform merchants of the change and to help them prepare. About a third of the city's population relies on the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, known as food stamps.

In less than two weeks, the Ravens' secondary will be tasked with covering the Cincinnati Bengals' multidimensional receiving corps, headlined by Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green. The Ravens are crossing their fingers that their top cornerbacks will be healthy enough to cover Green and wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Lardarius Webb hasn't practiced since July 25, when he first hurt his lower back. The Ravens are hopeful that he'll begin practicing by the end of this week, as he's made significant progress in his rehabilitation.

The Ravens have struck a one-year, $730,000 contract with veteran cornerback Derek Cox. The team cut undrafted rookie wide receiver Jace Davis to create a spot for Cox, who is expected to play against the New Orleans Saints  Thursday. His salary-cap figure is $570,000 under the veteran minimum salary benefit. The Ravens are thin at cornerback with injuries to top corners Jimmy Smith (chest bruise), Lardarius Webb (lower back) and Asa Jackson (sprained ankle). Cox was cut this week by the Minnesota Vikings after recording five tackles in three preseason games.

She is the owner and sole employee of Four Corners Cuisine, a Baltimore-based private chef service Hale-Koslowski operates out of the kitchens of her 10 clients. People have heard of personal chefs for the rich and famous, she says, but she caters to the middle class, not the multimillionaire.

When I was leaving a dinner for the upcoming Celebration of Art at Cylburn Arboretum, I gave our hostess a little hug.  As I turned to leave, she said, "What I love about Kathy is she hugs like a New Englander. "  Translation: Not too tight, not a bear hug, just a quick hug at a distance. I still surprise myself when I hug. My sister and I were not raised by huggers. No parents could have adored their children more than our mother and father, but they did not hug. Ditto our grandparents.

Defensive backs are scheduled to meet with teams and reporters today, which should serve as a reminder to the significant improvements the organization has made at the cornerback spot in a year's span. Last year at the NFL Scouting Combine, one of the Ravens' biggest needs was a cornerback and they wound up using two of their first five picks in the draft to address it, selecting Jimmy Smith (Colorado) in the first round and Chykie Brown (Texas) in the fifth. This year, the cornerback position is barely on the Ravens' radar. Now, I'm not saying that the Ravens won't use a mid-to-late-round pick on one because you can never have enough corners these days in the NFL. But I am saying that the Ravens consider the position one of their chief strengths going forward and feel no urgency to upgrade it, just like at quarterback and tight end. That's because Lardarius Webb, a third-round pick out of Nicholls State in 2009, is emerging as a legitimate shutdown corner at the age of 26. Webb is a restricted free agent and the Ravens are expected to put a first-round tender on him. But what they'd really like to do is sign him to a long-term contract extension.

COLLEGE PARK -  The first thing that sticks out about Daniel Ezeagwu? Probably his hair, a flat top of sorts with the top dyed yellow. “He's got nice hair,” Maryland safety Anthony Nixon joked. But Ezeagwu's play has been sticking out as well. The freshman is part of a group competing for Maryland's fourth and fifth cornerback jobs, and he has been getting singled out for his play by both teammates and coach Randy Edsall during the last week. Edsall was asked earlier in the week which players stood out to him during the Terrapins' scrimmage Saturday.
