Danyette Hawkins had to employ her best diplomatic skills as she stood in front of the Grand parking garage on Paca Street holding a bright-colored flag before the game. Every few minutes, a driver would pull up to enter the garage. Hawkins would have to explain that the garage — popular among fans when the team plays at night — was still filled with daytime business parkers. Then she would wave her flag and the car would move on. Some of the fans appeared frustrated.

A Baltimore County community association is spending thousands to fight a Cockeysville neighbor's building a garage apartment, a case that both sides say could have a significant impact on county land use. Harold H. Burns Jr., president of the Falls Road Community Association, warns that J. Gary and Barbara Mueller's remodeled garage could set a precedent that would allow other residents to overbuild on their properties. "You're not allowed to put a house in your backyard," said Burns, whose cash-strapped organization is asking other groups to pitch in on a legal battle that he says affects them all. "We've reached out to a lot of community associations," he said.

Baltimore's Urban Design and Architecture Review Panel on Thursday gave preliminary approval to the early design of the Harrah's casino that group led by Caesars Entertainment Corp. plans to build on an empty lot along Russell Street. The panel remains concerned about the look of a massive parking garage that faces Interstates 95 and 395. It was the focus of the panelists' critcism during their first meeting about the project, last month. Though the height of the garage has been reduced from about 120 feet to 100 feet, and vertical elements that echo the nearby Montgomery Park building were added to the design, the panelists continued to air concerns about how the garage will appear to drivers passing and entering the city.

Editor: There was a serious lack of monitoring at the Bel Air parking garage on Jan. 24, when I served my calling to be on the jury panel. It was one of the coldest days of this year. We were dismissed at noon and I headed to the parking garage and may car on the sixth floor. I got on the elevator alone, against my better judgment. After passing the fifth floor the elevator abruptly stopped with a jolt. My first thought was panic but I chose to access the situation and I realized there was an alarm button and a telephone button.

The new Main Street entrance to the Bel Air Municipal Parking Garage has opened. The entrance, which is off of Burns Alley between Courtland Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, was put in to work in conjunction with the new Main Street surface lot the town opened in July on the site of the former BB&T building. Traffic that enters the Main Street lot has the option of using one of the metered spaces on the lot or, if no spaces are available or the weather is rainy or snowy, a motorist can simply drive through the surface lot, cross Burns Alley and enter the parking garage.

Charles Gorham heard loud music at 5 a.m. Friday from the tan stucco garage apartment he rented behind his Northwest Baltimore home. His tenant, Duane Mitchell, was known for partying, and Gorham figured to leave well enough alone. He left for work, but when he returned at 9 a.m., the music was still blasting. The 73-year-old landlord walked over and, in the doorway, saw Mitchell's thin body splayed out, face buried in dingy beige carpet, dried blood covering the back of his bald head.

Everyone has a remedy to beat the summer heat, from a trip to the pool to a snowball from a shack. At Midnight Sun, we prefer the tried, true and futile practice of complaining about unrelenting humidity over cold drinks at a comfortable bar. It accomplishes little besides a buzz, and that's just fine. On a recent Friday evening, Le Garage Beer Bar & Frites - which opened in May on Hampden's West 36th Street, better known as the Avenue - offered a low-key backdrop for such sweat-induced grumbling.

Running parking garages is not a core function of government, so Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake's plan to sell off city-owned garages would be an encouraging step toward shedding non-essential city assets and investing in more important priorities for the city's residents and long-term fiscal health. The mayor proposes selling four downtown city-owned garages to generate between $40 million to $60 million in net proceeds (after paying off $24 million in garage debt) that would be used to make improvements to city recreation centers.

Chicago's 2008 privatization of its municipal parking assets is widely considered to be a colossal boondoggle. Los Angeles considered selling off a few of its parking garages earlier this decade but scrapped the idea after it became clear that the deal wouldn't be nearly as good as initially advertised. Pittsburgh's city council killed a parking privatization deal in 2010 amid concerns about hidden costs in the proposed contract. In 2013, Cincinnati signed a deal to privatize its parking, but then voters rebelled, electing an anti-privatization mayor and city council, who promptly killed the plan.

Several Baltimore City Council members expressed skepticism Monday about a plan to sell some downtown parking garages, while others began lobbying the Rawlings-Blake administration to claim funds from the sale for recreation centers in their districts. Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young said he has concerns about the administration's proposal to raise up to $60 million for recreation centers by selling four of the city's 17 parking garages. Young noted the four garages are money-makers - bringing in $400,000 annually - and questioned whether it's wise to forgo future revenue for a quick cash infusion.

Three men robbed a teenage boy of his Air Jordan tennis shoes at a Westfield Annapolis Mall parking garage Sunday, Anne Arundel County Police said. About 8 p.m., the suspects - two black men and a white man between 17 and 18 years old - followed the victim from the mall into the garage, police said. The robbers then threatened him with violence if he did not give up the shoes. The suspects fled down the outside stairs toward Sears after the victim handed over the shoes. The victim alerted mall security to the incident.

Annapolis' new Gotts Court Parking Garage is a home run -- an architectural triumph and key element in the revitalization of downtown.But its impact must be kept in perspective. The garage alone will not solve the capital city's economic problems, especially those of West Street.Of course, West Street businesses have good reason to celebrate the opening of this facility, which has been talked about for 30 years. By providing much needed parking space for shops and offices, the garage seems guaranteed to give West Street a shot in the arm.But, as Alderman Carl Snowden noted, "This is not the Second Coming."

Here's a restaurant with some sharp ideas about how a French bistro should behave when it's in 21st-century Hampden - be just French enough, without being too French. Le Garage opened last month in the site where The Dogwood restaurant had its valiant run. The space, which sits below street level, has never been considered an asset, but what the operators of Le Garage have done is rather cunning. Instead of fighting their location, they've exploited the space to create an environment that feels secluded and cool, like a place for folks in the know.
