I'VE BEEN COMMUTING on the Jones Falls Expressway into Baltimore for more than 10 years, and it isn't hard to remember the good old days when backups to Cold Spring Lane were, although annoying, reasonably tolerable. Even when backups became so routine that my feet would automatically pump the brakes when approaching Television Hill, there was no cursing, no teeth grinding and certainly no searching maps for possible alternate routes into the city. The backups were simply like television commercials; no one wants or asks to sit through them but, because they don't last too long, we do. Besides, the heavy traffic on the bottom leg of the JFX was moderately bearable because sometimes we got a taste of true gridlock -- when, without warning, some sinister force would actually back cars up the entire eight miles of the JFX, all the way back to the Beltway.

A stretch of Charles Street that was damaged and closed after a 90-year-old water main broke beneath it and sent torrents of water downhill two weeks ago was reopened Wednesday night, according to Baltimore's Department of Public Works. The stretch reopened - "just in time for holiday travel," the city said - about 8:20 p.m., after being closed between W. North Avenue and W. 21st Street in the city's Charles North neighborhood Nov. 7. All sidewalks, road surfaces and utilities on the street damaged by the break are also fixed, the department said.

New York has Lafayette Street and the 26th Street flea Market. In London, Bond Street is famous for antique shopping. Philadelphia has an Antique Row. But Annapolis, where history is woven into the fabric of the community, makes do with an antique scene scattered throughout the city and the area, rather than a central destination for those seeking interesting, unusual and high-quality period pieces. Shops are clustered on Maryland Avenue, in West Annapolis, with several on West Street near Route 2 and along Ritchie Highway and Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard north into Severna Park.

Of all the trendy pubs and historic restaurants in Annapolis, Bill Clinton chose a dim tavern on Maryland Avenue.That impromptu visit from the leader of the free world Monday was all it took to nudge The Little Campus Inn into the limelight. And it was more than enough to cause a ripple of wistful envy from other hot spots in a city where the owners of even the tiniest pub vie for the title of the political place to be seen."Oh sure, we would have loved to have had him in here," said Rusty Romo, owner of Harry Browne's on State Circle, where politicians and lobbyists go for a dining experience rather than a quick bite before a hearing.

I've been waiting 36 years for the phone call that came this week. Valerie Berton of the Maryland Department of Planning said that North Avenue's grand, but very dilapidated, Parkway Theatre would be the recipient of a $2 million Sustainable Communities Tax Credit administered through the Maryland Historical Trust. A few weeks ago, the city sold this magnificent 1915 film house to the Maryland Film Festival for a token $1. State officials will assemble at the Parkway, 5 W. North Ave., at 10:30 a.m. Monday to celebrate the announcement, which will help finance the planned renovations.

When Mateusz Rozanski and Kelly Cross planted a tiny boxwood hedge in front of their Maryland Avenue house, they woke the next morning to find all the expensive little shrubs gone. So they planted the twin patches of dirt again, and again the plants disappeared. And again. But they just kept planting. And in a kind of urban miracle, their optimism overwhelmed the vandalism, and the thieves just gave up trying to steal their gardens. "Something just clicked," said Mr. Rozanski, "and it started being respected.

Terrance Walbert, of the 200 block of Dumbarton Road, had stepped off of a city bus in the 1600 block of Maryland Avenue when he began to cross the street, police said.
