Mia Carolina has closed in Glyndon. The last day of service was Sunday. “We couldn't sell it and we couldn't sustain it,” owner Jay Cohen told The Baltimore Sun. "I'm grateful to everyone who was involved from the landlord to the last busboy. The customers made the restaurant what it was, and I thank every one of them. " Cohen opened Mia Carolina in 2005, taking over the old Mezzanotte Bistro space on Butler Road. He thoroughly renovated the space in 2007, changing the atmosphere from trattoria to semi-formal dining.

Prime pieces of farmland like this one on the auction block in northern Baltimore County are few and far between. Ideally situated among the rolling hills of Maryland's horse country, 4101 Butler Road in Glyndon is a 189-acre, horseshoe-shaped estate adjacent to Sagamore Farm, the well-known thoroughbred horse breeding center. A completely renovated, 304-year-old farmhouse, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, is nestled on the property. The current owners farm out portions of the land for soybean and hay. There is also a one-bedroom cottage on a 1-plus-acre building site.

On a late summer afternoon, Glyndon, the village tucked between Reisterstown and the Worthington Valley and its Sagamore Farm, looked as pretty as the black-eyed Susans tumbling over the old-fashioned fences. Had I wandered outside Baltimore County and fallen into a lost Cape May neighborhood? Was it all the porches, awnings, screen doors, rocking chairs and gardens? Glyndon indeed was once a summer retreat, miles distant from the city's heat, but connected by the rails, coaches and steam locomotives of the old Western Maryland Railway.

Like any prospective son-in-law, Sgt. Michael Frazier admitted to jitters about meeting his fiancee's father for the first time. Unlike most, the 29-year-old Marine flew to Miami Wednesday on a private jet with his own cheering section. "Not to worry about anything," Stephanie Greenberg assured Frazier, whom she met for the first time shortly before takeoff from the Signature Aviation terminal at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. "We are here for you, and we'll pull this dad aside and let him know how great you are. " Stephanie and Erwin Greenberg volunteered to fly Frazier and his fiance, Monica Montes, home for the holidays on their company plane to spare Frazier the hassles he would have encountered on a commercial flight.

Off historic Glyndon's main street, a dirt and gravel drive lined by old trees winds its way to the home of Todd and Karen Morrill. The rambling one-story house, constructed of redwood and Butler stone, sits above multiple graduated terraces with flagstone patios and decks. From the front, the home appears low to the ground and features three sets of 11-foot double doors. Warm lights from within reveal dark wood paneling, stone fireplaces, red bows wrapped around fir branches affixed to door frames and sprigs of holly on built-in shelving.

Rebecca Butchock's bed is feeling very empty this week, and her 2-year-old son, Liam, worries that everyone he loves who gets out of his sight may never come back. Their beloved dog, Ruby, got away from a friend during a walk earlier this week and they've mobilized a solid team of friends -- those they know in real life and some they only know on social media -- to find her. It's been a tragic month for the mother and son. “On the fourth of July,” says Butchock, “my boyfriend and Liam's father died very suddenly of a heart attack.” On the 12th, a friend offered to take Ruby for a hike at a farm in Glyndon to give Rebecca a bit of a break, but something spooked the terrier mix and she bolted, yanking her leash out of the friend's hand and vanishing into the woods.

There are several reasons that, according to at least one assessment, 2013 timber champion Foyle has been installed as the favorite heading into the 118th running of the Maryland Hunt Cup on Saturday in Glyndon. Gates open at 11 a.m. for a 4 pm. post time for the $75,000 steeplechase race, which will run on what is generally regarded as one of the most daunting courses in the sport. For one thing, Foyle will have a new mount. Highly regarded British amateur rider Sam Waley-Cohen replaces James Slater, who guided the Merriefield Farm 9-year-old to a photo finish in the $30,000 Grand National last weekend in Butler, losing by a nose to Spencer Road.

Glyndon Grill is all about casual comfort. But don't confuse that with being sloppy. The restaurant, which opened in October in the Butler Road space formerly occupied by Mia Carolina, feels upscale but it lacks the pretension that "upscale" sometimes involves. With friendly service and a kitchen turning out familiar and mostly well-executed comfort food, Glyndon Grill has already become a popular neighborhood spot. Scene & Decor The town of Glyndon is charming, historic and horsey, and Glyndon Grill fits right in. Though the space is newly renovated, horse country signage and historic photos capture the essence of the village.

In Glyndon, mail isn't delivered to houses. And residents of this northwestern Baltimore County town like it that way. Neighbors want to bump into each other and chat when they pick up mail at the historic, resident-owned post office. That's just the kind of place Glyndon is, they say. The historic neighborhood is also the kind of place where kids bike to the neighborhood swimming pool. It is the kind of place where friends sit on wrap-around front porches and where, on the Fourth of July, more people are marching in the town parade than are watching it. At the end, townspeople sing the national anthem and eat hot dogs.

Regarding your article on cool roofs, the concept appears very beneficial, but Baltimore also has a winter season ( "Push urged for more cool roofs in Baltimore," Oct. 13). There was not one word relating to the fact that though the white "cool" roofs reflect 80 percent of the sunlight in summer, I could use that 80 percent during the winter when my furnace is trying to make up for the loss that I am now denied because of my "cool" roof. Obviously what is needed is a roof which turns energy-reflecting white when it is hot outside but energy-absorbing black when it is cold.
