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 . Please include your name and contact information.

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....

As a former resident of Reisterstown for many years and now a resident of Pikesville, I am very excited at the prospect of Foundry Row and the Owings Mills Mall revitalization and Metro Centre coming to our area. It has been many years since I have been able to shop in my own area instead of traveling to White Marsh, Columbia, Towson or Hunt Valley. It is very frustrating to see development in all other areas of Baltimore County and not the Pikesville, Owings Mills, Reisterstown area.

As a resident of Owings Mills for the past 10 years, I can tell you that I am very excited about the three planned developments ("No 'courtesy' for Wegmans," May 27). I am looking forward to taking my daughter to the Metro Centre's library. After years of becoming a ghost town, it is about time the mall receives a makeover. And with Solo Cup abandoning its factory, it makes sense that it become a retail center. I support all three projects because they will bring much-needed retail to the Owings Mills community.

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.

Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston answers readers' questions on the Ravens' win over the Carolina Panthers and other topics about the team. Sure, Steve Smith was the star of Sunday's win over his former team. But I really liked what I saw from Justin Forsett. Last week it was Lorenzo Taliaferro. How long can the Ravens keep up this running back-by-committee approach? -- Eddie R. The Ravens should keep the running back by committee going for the rest of the season. It is working and they do not have a feature back on the roster.

Roy Valiant is totally correct about the anthem being disrespected by Orioles fans ( "Stop desecrating the anthem," Sept. 18). But I would like to go a step further. At many sporting events, unfortunately, it seems, most often at NASCAR events but others as well, the performer changes the anthem to "make it their own. " This works well on "American Idol" where the contestants are encouraged to do so. But not with "The Star Spangled Banner. " That should be left alone. "Free" and "brave" are one syllable words.

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.

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.
