Add a Super Bowl ring to the list of things floating in the Chesapeake Bay. The ring belongs to a receptionist for the Ravens named Toni Lekas -- everyone involved with a winning team gets a ring, not just the players.  The person who lost the ring is her boyfriend, Chuck Lykes. Florists, take note of his name, because Lykes will likely be sending Lekas a lot of bouquets to make up for this one. Lykes was wearing the ring at a party on a boat in Middle River in August after Lekas had gone home, according to The Caw blog on baltimoreravens.com.

Like the mayor, I'm no grocer, but I am nonetheless skeptical of owner Rob Santoni Jr.'s explanation of why he is closing his Highlandtown supermarket ( "Santoni's closing Highlandtown store," Oct. 13). To claim that the city's bottle tax is the sole reason for this decision raises a few questions: If beverage sales are such a big piece of the business, why didn't he grow volume in other areas, like real, healthy food, maybe even peas? Why did his family sell off the other 11 grocery stores over the last 80-some years and retain only one store, which apparently is over-dependent on a single product line (beverages)
