Local developer Greenberg Gibbons Commercial plans a "major refurbishment' of The Shops at Kenilworth after purchasing a stake in the Towson mall last month, the firm's CEO said. The mall, located just off Interstate 695 between Charles Street and York Road, has an extensive free parking and an upscale clientele for its some 30 stores, which makes it a "hidden gem," said Brian Gibbons, CEO and chairman of the board at Greenberg Gibbons. "I look at Kenilworth as a specialty center as opposed to a mall.

Regarding Steven Riveli's praise for the Rotunda mall owner's design decisions and list of experts who favor this type of development, the key to the most favorable plan lies in the character of the community it will serve ("Rotunda owners right to turn the mall inside out," Aug. 21). The community surrounding the Rotunda is not Harbor East or Towson. It is in an area that serves three senior citizen complexes and several well-established neighborhoods. This community welcomes the upgrade of the Rotunda and new neighbors.

With new Peruvian joints popping up just about every other week (or so it seems), the flavors of Latin and South America are all the rage. But just because they're trendy doesn't mean the cuisines of Latin countries are new to the Baltimore food scene. Tucked into an unremarkable strip mall in Woodlawn, Salsa Grill has been quietly and successfully cranking out quality Latin American food for more than two decades. Scene & Decor From the outside, Salsa Grill looks just like one more storefront in an average shopping center.

Gunfire pierced the Saturday morning bustle at The Mall in Columbia, a gathering place for many in the planned suburban community, sending shoppers racing for cover as two store employees were fatally shot by a man who police said then killed himself.

Hundreds of people huddled in the cold outside The Mall in Columbia on Thursday for a candlelight vigil to remember Brianna Benlolo and Tyler Johnson, the skate shop employees killed in Saturday's shooting at the mall. The vigil was held at an impromptu memorial set up outside the mall's west entrance, where suspected gunman Darion Marcus Aguilar entered the mall that morning. Police say Aguilar, 19, of College Park, shot Benlolo and Johnson with a 12-gauge shotgun about 11:15 a.m. before turning the gun on himself.

The Macy's store at the Mall in Columbia was burglarized early Wednesday morning. At around 4:50 a.m., two unknown men smashed open a window to break into the store, Howard County Police said. They fled the scene without taking anything after they were confronted by a Macy's employee. The suspects were seen driving a black Dodge pickup truck. Fire crews initially responded to a call claiming there was a car in the Macy's building, but found no vehicle inside when they arrived at the location, according to the Howard County Fire & Rescue Twitter account.

Sometimes the best flavors pop up in the least likely places - such as a strip mall on Route 175 near Fort Meade. That's where Bangkok Kitchen has done business for nearly 20 years. From the outside, the shopping center has seen better days. But don't let that stop you. Bangkok Kitchen's excellent Thai food is much more memorable than the building's rundown exterior would indicate. Serious foodies will recognize the area, too. Just down the street, Grace Garden has been making adventurous Chinese-food lovers drool for years.

Do they know what they're doing? Construction jobs pretty good money, but then they just end. Retail sales…many low paying, and often dead-end. White Marsh Mall…not exactly packed. It's acres of blacktop with much underused. Look out Chesapeake Bay, more runoff infused. So once in a while we may walk through an aisle of one brick and mortar. But then we look down to check on device how cheap online, and leave for best price.

In response to Baltimore County Councilman David Marks' recent letter about the proposed Nottingham Ridge Outlet Mall, I would again point out the project's appalling lack of community input ("Marks: Consider the alternative to the outlet mall plan," June 23). As Councilman Marks is aware, I have been a long-time supporter of both his work with the Baltimore County Council and his volunteer work within the community. In fact, I believe our working friendship began in 2008, when he was president of the Perry Hall Improvement Association and I was president of the Perry Hall Middle School PTSA.

How touching that Gov. Martin O'Malley, Rep. Elijah Cummings and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman found time to show support for the mall shooting victims on Monday ("Community begins to rebuild as Columbia mall reopens," Jan. 27). But why were these deaths any more important than those that occur almost daily in Baltimore City? Are those slaughters any less "tragic?" I dare say our caring leaders could be kept quite busy posturing in the city, but of course there are no media crews there to capture their concern for a national TV audience.

So, Dan Rodricks actually thinks it's unbelievable that there are people who feel that "you don't expect that kind of thing to happen to you," as he was reportedly told by an 18-year-old worker in the aftermath of the shootings at the Mall in Columbia ( "Expecting the horrible is the American way Jan. 25). Mr. Rodricks reports that he had to ask the worker at the mall, not once, but twice, "Really?" Well, guess what, Dan? Yes, there are those of us who are surprised when such events happen.

Regarding Heather Patti's op-ed about the Nottingham Ridge outlet mall proposal, for the past 15 years I have worked to lighten school overcrowding in Perry Hall and White Marsh, and after my election to the Baltimore County Council I down-zoned more than 400 acres of land, blocking hundreds of new homes from being built ( "Is a mega mall slipping in under the radar?" June 13). The current Nottingham Ridge plan reverses this work to lighten school overcrowding. Approved by my predecessor, it will flood our schools with students from 1,250 apartments and condominiums, with no clear plan to build a desperately-needed middle or high school.

Elected officials in Baltimore County need to think carefully about plans for a new outlet mall at Nottingham Ridge in White Marsh ( "Developers of White Marsh outlet mall face opposition campaign from rivals," June 14). I have so many concerns about this project that it is hard to know where to begin. As a business owner and resident of the area, I fear that adding this new competition without doing an in-depth analysis of the retail market may cause stores to close and blight to come to the existing shopping centers.
