"I left for work at approximately 8 a.m. There was no TV in those days and the radio wasn't something everyone tuned in to early in the morning," wrote Ruth Martin, an 87-year-old Baltimore native now living in Parker, Ariz. "I caught my bus and the regulars boarded, and the morning progressed as usual. " She wrote to me of a day she never forgot: May 8, 1945 — Victory in Europe Day, V-E Day. It was the day the Allies formally accepted Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender. Born Ruth Dembinsky and living on Mount Street near Wilkens Avenue, Martin was a 1940 Western High School graduate.

Marylanders heading off to visit loved ones encountered heavy, but not unbearable, traffic on most state roadways -- and weather that left a lot to be desired as heavy rain made for a soggy Thanksgiving Eve. During the evening rush, traffic on the Bay Bridge was especially heavy because of several minor accidents and the inability of officials to open a third lane for eastbound traffic, said Lindsay Reilly, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Transportation Authority....

THE EXPLOSIVE growth of Maryland's commuter train patronage suggests that the arrival of around-the-clock rail service between Baltimore and Washington is just a matter of time. As the number and frequency of trains keep increasing, Amtrak's Penn Station will become even busier. That's why it makes sense to build a Greyhound bus station on vacant land next door and create a comprehensive transit hub for Baltimore.This worthy proposal by Greyhound Lines and Amtrak ought to be explored for its tremendous potential.

In Baltimore City Design panel clears way for Greyhound station The city's Design Advisory Panel gave its support yesterday to plans for a four-story Greyhound bus station on North Charles Street at Lanvale Street, clearing the way for construction of the $15.5 million project. The station's brick and pre-cast concrete exterior is meant to blend with nearby rowhouses and Penn Station. The ground floor will hold the bus terminal and possibly a cafe; the three upper levels will have 329 parking spaces available to passengers and the public.

New bus depot puts big burden on transit riders State Transportation Secretary Robert L. Flanagan is exactly correct that the Haines Street location for the new Greyhound bus station involved "stupid decisions" and that the station is "not located close to the population that wants to use the Greyhound bus service" ("City, state debating MTA access to bus site," July 20). Thus we have yet another slap in the face to the poor and low-income folks who rely heavily on this bus service. The bus station issue should have been a top priority.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - They are given a set of cheap clothes, a check for $50 and a state voucher good for one bus ticket out of town. Then, in a ritual so common that it goes largely unnoticed in this pleasant East Texas town of 36,000, about 100 prison inmates are released every weekday into the streets of Huntsville. No matter in which of the 58 Texas prisons, with more than 130,000 inmates, they are jailed, male prisoners are always released from the prison system's state headquarters here at the Huntsville Unit - whether on parole or having completed their sentences.

John Peter Coutros, former co-owner of a Baltimore seafood restaurant who was active in Greek cultural organizations, died of heart failure Friday at his home in Dover, Pa. He was 87. The former longtime Hunting Ridge resident, who had lived in Dover since 1987, was born in New York. He returned to Greece with his parents in the early 1920s and settled in Sparta, where his father was mayor and operated a vineyard. In 1930, he was sent back to New York and lived on Coney Island. He moved to Baltimore and, during World War II, served as a chef in the Army Air Forces.
