Bryan Voltaggio's diner project, coming later this spring to East Street in Frederick, has a name. It's Family Meal. The term has a sweet double meaning. It's of course what some folks call the meals they share with their own family, but it's also an industry term for the meal that a restaurant staff shares before evening service begins.  If you want to be part of Family Meal's family, there's going to be an employment open house on May 15 and May 22 at Volt.

REGULAR PATRONS of the Colonial Players of Annapolis know only too well that this autumn's season premiere, "And a Nightingale Sang," opened somewhat later than originally scheduled.But the delay was worth it -- not only because of the evocative play about a blue-collar family living in England during World War II, but because a $300,000 face-lift has much improved the ensemble's East Street home.The upgrades include an enlarged lobby and bar where theater-goers can gather and sip beverages, a more functional box office and $70,000 worth of improvements in lighting and sound equipment.

CULPEPER, Va. - When former Culpeper Mayor Waller Jones discussed his upset loss in a bid for a fourth term this spring, he mentioned the role of a small core of political activists - the South East Neighborhood Watch. What began 10 years ago as a community effort to rid the block of drug dealers has evolved into a close-knit group of neighbors who are involved in social and philanthropic issues and form perhaps the county's second-most powerful political force, behind the Republican Party.

THE TUMULT and the shouting have died. The thousands of visitors here for the All-Star Game have departed. Let's hope that while they were here they saw more than Oriole Park at Camden Yards and nearby hotels. If they'd poked around a little, they might have gone home shaking their heads.In South Baltimore, for example, they might have come across a West Street and an East West Street. Traveling north and south,they would have found a Charles Street, but they could have found, too, a Charles Avenue, Charles Lane and Charles Road.

The problem : Parking is prohibited on a Harbor East street, but with little warning. The backstory : Jon Spelman knows to be careful when parking on city streets. But that didn't prevent him from getting towed. The Fells Point resident said he attended a conference at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel on a recent Sunday and decided to drive his wife's Toyota RAV4 there to escape the heat. He parked behind another car on International Drive, a dead-end street off the traffic circle at the end of President Street that leads to the entrance of the new Legg Mason tower.

Kenneth Lyles, a barber at the Total Male on East Monument Street, described the devastating scene: a loud bang on the street that sounded like the passing tow truck had hit something and then a deep hole in the pavement opening quickly, peeling down away from the surface like Play-Doh. "You couldn't see the bottom," he said. "It was a scary sight, man. " Lyles said he and others outside at the time told the truck driver to quickly keep driving. He said they rushed to both ends of the block between North Patterson Park Avenue and North Montford Avenue to divert traffic away from the widening trench.

City public works crews are still working to determine the extent of problems from a sinkhole on East Monument Street, just east of Johns Hopkins Hospital, where residents and businesses are expected to be without natural gas for weeks. A six-inch water main broke at the 2300 block of East Monument Street between Bradford and Montford within the existing sinkhole that left least 15 businesses and second-story apartments without natural gas service on Wednesday. Discharge from the broken main increased the collapse, causing 60 units between 2322 and 2342 East Monument Street to lose water until Sunday, according to a department of public works statement.
