The husband-and-wife team behind Verde concede they were somewhat reticent about publicizing Verde, at least at first. When they opened their approachable chic trattoria last September, in the old Birches space on Montford Street, Ed Bosco and Marianne Kresevich certainly were hoping that Verde would be a good fit for Canton. Now, the Roland Park residents, who moved to Baltimore four years ago, said that the first year has exceeded their expectations. And they're moving forward, with a new brunch debuting this weekend and plans to expand seating to the second floor.

Caesar's Den has closed. The Little Italy restaurant served its last meals to the public on Sunday night. It was owned by Tina and Guido DeFranco, who lived above their High Street restaurant. "It feels great," said Guido DeFranco on the morning after the last dinner. "If feels like the first day of my  new life.

I met a 40-something fellow who plays softball almost every night, and frequently on Sunday, sometimes on only four hours' sleep. He works an overnight shift at a paper products plant, comes home in the morning, drives his wife to her job and his youngest daughter to school, picks his daughter up in the afternoon, sleeps 'til supper, puts on his uniform and plays a double-header before getting to work at 11 p.m. He plays for three teams. He's batting .638 for one of them."You must love it," I said.

PORT DEPOSIT - With an influx of cash from the state, construction will continue on the repair of a century-old, three-story retaining wall that has been in danger of falling since early 2004. Bill Eldred, Port Deposit's director of economic development, said the state Board of Public Works approved Wednesday $200,000 to be used to shore up the wall, which has threatened homes along High Street as well as those on Main Street below, in this Susquehanna River town. "It's not sexy or glamorous, but it keeps the construction going," Eldred said of the state aid. The money was good news for residents living on High Street, a narrow, dead-end road that climbs a rocky hill above and behind homes along Main Street.

PORT DEPOSIT - Bids are due this week for repair of this town's retaining wall, which has been threatening to fall since earlier this year - and none too soon for residents of the High Street neighborhood, who are tired of walking the quarter-mile hill between their homes and the municipal parking lot where they've been forced to park since February. John Klisavage, whose family is among seven other families living on High Street, said he makes mental calculations about what to carry before leaving home ---- two lunchboxes, a handful of business papers, maybe an umbrella.

The Carroll commissioners cleared the way yesterday for New Windsor to build a firehouse when they gave the town's volunteer Fire Department 7 county-owned acres off Route 75. The land, now a ball field, will give the department space to build the two-story headquarters it wants. It has become increasingly difficult to cram new equipment into the firehouse on High Street, said Leon Fleming, liaison between Carroll County Volunteer Firemen's Association and the commissioners. "They've just outgrown it."

PORT DEPOSIT -- A section of a century-old retaining wall that holds back a mountain of rock and soil behind buildings along Main Street in this Susquehanna River town is in danger of collapsing -- again. "The engineers tell us it could fall anytime," Mayor Robert "Rob" Flayhart said yesterday as he pointed to a section of stone wall, about 30 feet long, not far from his Town Hall office. He said the concrete-and-rock structure, which also supports High Street, has moved about 2 inches in recent weeks.

The state fire marshal's office is asking the public for help investigating a series of arsons at vacant homes within a half-mile of each other in Cambridge. A fifth blaze broke out early Friday after a spate in March and April. Thirty firefighters, including crews from four neighboring towns on the Eastern Shore, fought the fire at a home under renovation in the 400 block of High Street starting about 12:35 a.m. Investigators determined the fire was intentionally set on the second floor of the home and caused $25,000 in damage.

The revivals keep going. Another old favorite is coming back. The Old Waverly History Exchange & Tea Room, which operated out of a Victorian frame house on 31st Street, will re-open at the end of the year in Little Italy, according to its once and future owner, Donna Beth Joy Shapiro. The new version, which will be called Old Waverly Tea Room & Academy of Home Arts, will occupy a long-shuttered commercial space on Little Italy's High Street. Shapiro, a sometime contributor to the Sun, said that her plans for the new location include a retail bakery operation, which will feature bread baked in a wood-fired brick oven, along with Old Waverly specialties like raisin scones, rosemary shortbread and rugelach, and a classroom space where she will offer home economics classes under the Academy of Home Arts name.  Shapiro said she intends to operate the bakery, cafe and academy under kosher supervision.

Lost City Diner materialized in Charles North last August. Now, the fountain shop and late-night stop has shut itself down. Don't worry, though — its owner, Joy Martin, said it's an intermission. Martin, who also own the Club Charles, gave no firm date for the reopening of Lost City. In an email, she said she's "just closing to do some renovations to the kitchen and try to get my sign up. " When Lost City Diner opened suddenly last summer, it seemed to be the final chapter of a long-running serial that played out for years on the corner of Charles and Lanvale streets, half a block up from the Club Charles Lost City Diner, when it revealed itself, was beautiful, with antique fixtures and fanciful retro-industrial elements gorgeously evoking the giddy atmosphere of a Buck Rogers serial from the 1930s.

About 20 of High Street Partners' employees are based at its Annapolis headquarters. The rest of its 160 workers are spread around the world, from California to London to Shanghai — which makes sense, considering its niche. The company helps firms set up international operations and keep them humming, whether it's a U.S. corporation trying to break into Brazil or a European company expanding here. High Street is finding plenty of call for those services: Revenue increased by more than 50 percent in 2011, and the company expects to repeat the performance in 2012.

"It's scary," said Lisa Von Brauen, who lives on Main Street, about a block from town hall and near High Street - where tons of the granite wall were removed in May to prevent it from falling on homes below.

There has been an Indian restaurant on Little Italy's main street for years, so why not a gourmet Argentine carryout and coffeehouse? Max's Empanadas moved into a storefront location where a couple of Italian delis have come and gone, and it looks to be off to a good start. It's a real charmer. You may recognize the enterprising owner, Max Gonzalez, not only from local farmers' markets, where he sells his pastries, empanadas and chimichurri sauce, but also from the area's tango scene, for which he's both a promoter and teacher.
