Baltimore County police confirmed Friday that a 14-year-old girl declared missing earlier in the week had been found in Rosedale on Wednesday afternoon, the day after she disappeared. She was unharmed. Solothia A. Thomas, a student at Overlea High School, was found by police at a fast-food restaurant in Rosedale about 24 hours after she failed to return home from school. Neither of two police spokesmen contacted by The Baltimore Sun could say why the department, having released a news bulletin on Wednesday asking for the public's help in finding Solothia, did not then put out another statement about her being found safe less than 90 minutes later.

Like Thanksgiving, Labor Day is a national holiday. Unlike Thanksgiving, it does not have an official meal. One-hundred-and-twenty years on, it's time we had one. I'm nominating the peppers-and-eggs sandwich as the official meal of Labor Day, and I'll tell you why in a moment. First, some declarations. 1. Most people only think of Labor Day as a day off at the end of summer, or a good day to buy a dishwasher. Lost is its original meaning: a "national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.

What if Downton Abbey was set in a fast-food restaurant, but kind of like with the same characters. And what if that guy from "Mad About You" and "Spin City" was in it? But there's no Dowager Countess character -- I don't think - that wanders pointlessly into a scene, makes a lemon-sucking face and says something like, "Toasted buns, indeed. " Seen on Eater

On my way to Rod Laver Arena, I see something on the street that catches my eye. It's a restaurant, called, no joke, "Lord of the Fries." Why in the world would an Australian fast food restaurant chain try to link itself to William Golding's famous novel about shipwrecked boys and the destructiveness of human nature? Are patrons only allowed to order "fries" if they're holding the conch? Are these "fries" cooked by a giant replica of Piggy's glasses? If you order "Pig's Head On a Stick" as a side to your fries, are you forced to come to terms with your loss of innocence?

A gas station proposed for Waverly Woods is the lesser of two evils in a contest with a possible fast-food restaurant, some residents and business operators believe. Others welcome the service station proposed for Waverly Woods Village Center shopping center by Convenience Retailing LLC as a way to draw new customers and to eliminate a roughly five-mile drive to get gas. "It is definitely better than a fast-food restaurant," said H.J. Pflueger, who lives in Waverly Woods, about six blocks from the service station proposed for the intersection of Warwick Way and Birmingham Way. "Then people come, they eat and they throw it around.

A fast-food restaurant in Northeast Baltimore was robbed Saturday night by two men who forced customers to lie on the floor while they took an undetermined amount of cash from registers, police said. The men entered the KFC restaurant in the 6200 block of Belair Road shortly before 7:10 p.m. One of them brandished a handgun and ordered customers to the floor as his companion acted as lookout, police said.

Two decades ago, the last Gino's, in Pasadena, closed - leaving the hungry faithful in search of another burger to replace their beloved Gino's Giant. That is, until former Baltimore Colt Gino Marchetti helped bring back the franchise, starting with a location in King of Prussia last year. In August, Gino's Burgers & Chicken debuted in Towson, and longtime fans lined up for a taste of nostalgia. Gino's, it turns out, is still better than most fast food on the market.

For the record: Julie Shanklin did not, as a 16-year-old girl in the 1970s, take up the hem of her Gino's uniform to make it a mini-dress. She was 5 foot 11, OK? And because she was so tall, the red-and-white dress was short on her, even by 1970s standards. "My mom was like, 'Is there any hem we could let out?'" There was not, so Shanklin paired her uniform with the ruffled bloomers her mother wore square dancing. "It would have been obscene. " Even with obscenity averted, Shanklin caught the eye of Harold Autry, also 16 and working as a cook at the same Gino's in Montgomery County.

A 40-year-old man was sentenced yesterday to 23 years in prison for robbing and stabbing an 82-year-old woman outside a Baltimore KFC restaurant. The judge said he would have sent the suspect away for an even longer term if the law allowed it. The suspect, Rozza Alston, addressed the court with his hands cuffed behind him, wearing a red and blue plaid short-sleeve button-down shirt and long shorts. Speaking in a hushed, barely audible voice, he maintained his innocence and said he was not the type of person who could commit such a crime.
