The original Chesapeake Restaurant was a Baltimore dining institution for more than 50 years until it closed in the late 1980s. After a 24-year dormancy, the doors at 1701 North Charles St. opened in June 2013, with a new restaurant, named The Chesapeake, which was operated by the property's developer, Ernst Valery, and his partners. Valery closed The Chesapeake in May and turned the restaurant space over to the Karzai family, the restaurateurs behind The Helmand (which is named, partly, after the family's oldest son, Helmand Karzai)

What a great idea: a Cuss Bucket! ("Time for a little gosh-darned civility," May 17). We used to do a similar thing at home when our children were growing up, only the words they might have used were a lot milder than those inferred in Fred Rasmussen 's delightful article. Wouldn't it be wonderful (sigh) if we could get back to gentle language again? And gentle behaviors? And respect for one another? We could all benefit from some "gosh-darned civility.

A Baltimore-based chocolatier placed very high on a new list of the 50 Best Chocolatiers in America on Wednesday. Glarus comes in at no. 6. Here's what they say about Glarus on Complex , an online style guide for 20-something men. "Glarus Chocolatier uses traditional Swiss recipes for each of their handcrafted creations. Think a small craft brewery, but with chocolate covered strawberries rather than pilsners and lagers. Got it? We feel drunk already. " The Glarus store on Exeter Street is only slightly less fun to visit than the dentist's, but getting drunk on chocolate sounds like a great idea.

An interview with Thea Jones, founding member of Renaissance book club. When did your group get started? A group of us decided to do this about 1980. ... We were working together as members of the Friends of the Howard County Library, and ... we thought that it would be a great idea to have a book club with men and women in it so that there would be cross-gender discussion, if I can say it that way. And we convinced our husbands that it would be a great idea. What book are members reading this month?

According to letter writer Mark L. Alexander, "millionaires became millionaires because they offered a good or service that other people wanted. They owe society nothing from these transactions. Their sole obligation was to the people with whom they entered into a contract to provide the good or service. " I think the writer ("Rich owe no debt to society," Dec. 7) is sadly mistaken. A quote from Elizabeth Warren says what I would like to say but she says it much better. Ms. Warren writes, "There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear.

Robbie Silverman felt uneasy approaching his rabbi about the subject, fearing the spiritual leader of his congregation would find it weird, or at least silly. But Silverman had lost a loved one only weeks before, and he wanted to do something. He stepped into Rabbi Yerachmiel Shapiro's office at Moses Montefiore Anshe Emunah synagogue in Baltimore County and broached the subject of installing a memorial tribute board similar to those in the hallway and the chapel honoring members of the congregation and their relatives.

A little more than two years ago, Corey Hirsch's older sister gave him an idea. Bridget Hirsch, a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York, had recently seen her school participate in a charity hockey game benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. She took a few pictures at the event and sent some information to her family, thinking it might be something they could replicate back home. Corey thought it was a great idea. Then a sophomore at DeMatha, Corey approached coach Tony MacAulay about doing something similar with the Stags hockey team.

On the same day the Greater Baltimore Committee unveils transformative plans for a new downtown arena, we receive word of a shooting of a 12-year-old boy who was watching an NBA playoff game on a television set perched in the window of a house on Cliftview Avenue — and this just a day or so after the FBI again affirmed Baltimore as one of the most violent cities in the country. On Thursday, the boy, Sean Johnson, died of his injuries. That's the way it goes around here: Big visions and bold ideas for buildings in the places attractive to tourists, violence and frustrations out in the neighborhoods where Baltimoreans of modest means reside, along with their children.

Blogs, it's been shown, can do many things: shame celebrities, hound politicians, break news, challenge the mainstream media. But can a blog help save a city? George Soros' Open Society Institute in Baltimore hopes so. The institute, a private grant-making foundation founded by the billionaire financier and philanthropist Soros to promote economic and social reforms, this month launched a blog called audaciousideas.org to further debate about what ails Baltimore. Jane Sundius, the group's director of education and youth development, drew about a dozen comments to her post last week calling on community members to watch their kids as they pass to and from school each day, to both encourage them and ensure their safety.

On baseball's first full day of the 1995 season, there were highlights and lowlights, among them:* The Colorado Rockies opened their new park, Coors Field in Denver, in record-tying style. The Rockies' 11-9 win over the New York Mets in 14 innings tied the National League longevity record for any season opener.* Atlanta's Fred McGriff got off to his best start in eight years, driving in five runs with two homers and two singles in five at-bats in a 12-5 win over San Francisco. Atlanta's three-time Cy Young winner, Greg Madduix, yielded just one hit in five innings.

Inventor Mario P. DiForte has spent more than four decades thinking of ideas for gadgets, tools and products. If there's a better way to practice baseball, drive a car, talk on a cell phone, prevent illness on airplanes or rescue a person from drowning, DiForte thinks he has a solution in his arsenal. Now, at 66, DiForte is battling heart problems and fears that nearly two dozen unsold inventions may never do more than gather dust on the shelves of his Glen Arm home. That worry has sparked what DiForte believes could be his biggest concept of them all: He intends to give his ideas away.
