Far from a tragedy, Foundry Row represents a great opportunity for the Owings Mills community ( "Suburban tragedy," Sept. 5). It will at least provide some well-paying jobs and revenue to help jump start the Owings Mills-Reisterstown area. Now if we could only get the old mall replaced with a Costco center like the one in Columbia. Stuart Hirsch, Reisterstown - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

I've been reading "A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction" by Christopher Alexander. This is a mighty must-have-doorstopper for anyone interested in New Urbanism and the vocabulary of spaces that a person would actually want to live in. It was published in 1977, so architects, designers and city planners have had almost 40 years to soak in the intelligence of constructing buildings and developing public spaces that feel humane....

In search of a sustainable art medium, visual artist Kara Brook bought a beehive six years ago so she could use beeswax to paint. She quickly discovered that those same bees could be the source of a sustainable business as well. She started packaging the honey and then expanded into making what she calls “bee-inspired products.” Today, Brook collects honey from her 18 hives on her 102-acre Kent Island farm to produce home and beauty products, including candles, soaps, exfoliating scrubs and lip balms.

It was the first day of camp, a busy day at the swimming pool of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills. Amid the happy splashing, lifeguard Jalina Ray spotted something that didn't look right. She got the attention of fellow lifeguard Andrew Minkin, and pointed to an 8-year-old thrashing underwater. "I originally thought it was just a kid messing around at the bottom of the pool," said Minkin, 18, a senior at the McDonogh School. "When he didn't surface after 10 seconds, I became really concerned.

The owner of an Owings Mills medical firm is accused of defrauding Medicare and Medicaid of more than $7.5 million in a federal indictment unsealed Monday. Federal prosecutors say Alpha Diagnostics owner Rafael Chikvashvili, 67, of Baltimore created false examination reports, submitted insurance claims for medical procedures that were never performed by licensed physicians, and overbilled Medicare and Medicaid, among other fraudulent acts. The X-ray company's offices in Owings Mills and Harrisburg, Pa., were raided last October by the FBI. Chikvashvili directed his employees, who were not doctors, to interpret X-rays, medical tests, ultrasounds and cardiological exams, rather than paying licensed physicians to do the work, the indictment alleged.

The officials who are responsible for safeguarding the nation's intelligence secrets are trying to figure out how to better vet millions of employees and contractors with security clearances, after auditors found that some of those workers owed more than three-quarters of a billion dollars in unpaid taxes.

Last year, the agency reported that 8,400 executive-branch civilian employees and contractors owed $85 million.

An Owings Mills man charged in a Thursday bank robbery turned himself in after he realized he was being followed by a witness to the robbery, Baltimore County Police said Friday. Police say a man held a knife to an M&T Bank employee's neck and demanded money, then fled from the bank in the 7600 block of Belair Road with an undisclosed amount of money in a small silver car. Lt. Robert McCullough said a witness to the robbery followed the car into the city, but lost it on Interstate 95. However, the witness was able to give detectives the license plate number on the car. McCullough said John Martin Lynch, 51, of Matinee Court, turned himself into the Parkville Precinct several hours later, and now faces first- and second-degree assault and armed robbery charges.

The scoreboards and scaffolding have come down at Caves Valley Golf Club in Owings Mills, and the venue has returned to its members and corporate clientele. Yet with the success of the LPGA's inaugural International Crown won by Spain last Sunday, it doesn't seem to be a question of whether the LPGA will return to a club that prides itself on periodically hosting major championships, but when and with what event. "I would like to see us play whatever we and they want to play here," LPGA commissioner Michael Whan said on the final day. I think this course can hold anything on the LPGA schedule.
