For nearly a decade, the burnt-out stone shell of the old Ellicott City School languished like a ruin on a hill overlooking historic Ellicott City and the Patapsco Valley.But this spring, after months of rehabilitation, the long-abandoned property at 3700 College Ave. has been transformed into Howard County's newest luxury residential complex, a 20-unit development called the Greystone condominiums.A sales center and furnished model opened last month for the condominiums, which represent the first phase of a 4.5-acre, $8 million development that will include 28 three-story town houses.

Executive chef Joshua Vazquez reflects: Cooking is really a passion of mine and has been since my childhood. As a child, I grew up in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is truly a wonderful place because of the cultural mix that stems from its history. Growing up there really influenced me not only as a person, but also as a cook. The rich history created a nexus of Indian, European and African influences and flavors that all still inspire me today. These rich flavors and cooking styles, Ceviche for example, always provide a base I can look back to whenever I am in doubt about a dish.

The proposed Greystone golf course and country club, near White Hall in northern Baltimore County, moved a step closer to reality last week when the county appeals board gave the project the go-ahead for a second time.From the time the idea was proposed, area residents complained that the project, at the intersection of White Hall and Vernon roads, would generate traffic, diminish the quantity and quality of the water supply, take productive agricultural land out of use and disturb the tranquillity of a historic inn at York and Wiseburg roads, a few miles away.

Greystone Grill has reinvented the concept of a mall restaurant. Now you can shop at Wal-Mart and then walk to this contemporary steak and seafood house for dinner. Your wine vault awaits. It will cost you a mere $1,500 and will house up to 24 bottles. Vaults are prominently on display with the owner's name in big letters. And yes, several have already been sold. At first glance, Greystone seems as pricey as upscale steakhouses like Ruth's Chris. The difference is that the food isn't a la carte.

Playing Baltimore County's premier Greystone golf course, which opens in White Hall in the spring, may cost golfers more than double the top rates for the county's three existing public courses.The dramatically higher rates proposed by the independent Baltimore County Revenue Authority yesterday -- $30 on weekdays and $40 on weekends, plus $11 for an electric cart -- already have golfers and some public officials complaining."That's outrageous. I won't be playing it. They're not worried about the average player," said Dennis Claassen of Overlea, an avid golfer who belongs to a 32-member golf club.

Greystone, a golf course project that has been more than five years getting to the construction stage, is a study in tenacity.Architect Joe Lee used the word last week during formal turning-the-first-shovelful-of-dirt ceremonies. Actual construction of the northern Baltimore County course started eight weeks ago and the first four holes have been cleared and roughed, with shaping next on the agenda.It was a great day for the original investors who are still involved and who persevered over the years to see a dream come true.

Greystone, a northern Baltimore County golf project that has been on and off for more years than people care to remember, will open officially for play Thursday.The public, daily-fee facility incorporates the rolling countryside, presenting both tree-lined and wide-open holes, along with five ponds. From the under-construction clubhouse site at the highest point of the property in White Hall, the vistas are dramatic.Joe Lee, the Florida-based architect who was part of the original team, developed a design that includes five sets of tees and plays from 4,800 to 6,925 yards, with a par of 72.Greystone is owned by the financially independent Baltimore County Revenue Authority, which bought the property about the same time it was negotiating for control of the county's other three public courses in 1995.

Every restaurant signals in different ways what a customer can anticipate. I don't expect white tablecloths amid the cheerful clatter of a diner, or a sophisticated night out in a family restaurant where home-style favorites and comfortable dress are the draw. Expensive places have their signals too: higher-than-average prices, better-than-average ambience and a certain flare with the menu. But on my recent visit to GreystoneGrill, one of the most expensive restaurants in the county, I found mixed signals.

If you love a certain Ellicott City eatery, you're now going to develop a similar crush on a new place in Hunt Valley. That's because Greystone Grill No. 2 has just opened at the newly renovated Hunt Valley Towne Center. Like the Ellicott City original, the Hunt Valley version sports a "contemporary, clean" look, according to its "innkeeper" (aka general manager) Tom Brown. Same wood-stain colors, same gray stonework around columns and posts. But this version also offers outside seating, as long as the weather cooperates.

Think of the new Greystone Grill as the restaurant of the future. You can take that literally: A second Greystone Grill will open in Hunt Valley next fall, and others are to follow in the Annapolis and D.C. areas. Or you can take it figuratively: My guess is that we're going to be seeing more and more of this restaurant concept, located somewhat uneasily between casual and fine dining. The food and prices are upscale, but white tablecloths, dress codes and formal service are missing from these places.

MONROVIA, Liberia - The thousands who have set up camp inside a U.S. Embassy-owned compound here are hungry, sick and tired of running. Yesterday, with fresh fighting just six miles north of the city, many were also tired of waiting. The world has promised to help them, they say. Even the Americans, whom they see as their closest kin, have said they will do something. But no one, not U.S. soldiers nor even West Africans who have offered to come first, shows any signs of getting here anytime soon.

Baltimore County's fifth public golf course opens Wednesday, its second new public course in 13 months and a facility that officials say will help make the county a more attractive location for businesses and their executives.Woodlands Golf Course, a premium 18-hole course on county-owned land next to the older Diamond Ridge course near Woodlawn, cost $6.5 million and features a challenging 7,000-yard course with trees hemming in the fairways designed by Lindsay Ervin.Its opening -- to be preceded by a VIP outing on the course today -- culminates a three-year effort by the county to put its public golf courses in the hands of the financially independent Baltimore County Revenue Authority, rather than have the courses compete for tax dollars as part of the Department of Recreation and Parks.
