With the swipe of an excavator, a demolition crew began taking down the abandoned Solo Cup factory in Owings Mills on Thursday, work that will clear the way for new development that was once threatened by opposition. When the abandoned plant is flattened, developers plan to build a $140 million shopping center anchored by the upscale grocer Wegmans, as well as a gym, restaurants, offices and stores. Developers say Foundry Row will open by late 2015 or early 2016. The ceremonial start to demolition at the site on the corner of Reisterstown and Painters Mill roads followed months of debate among residents, developers and Baltimore County Council members.

Once it was a sign of how well bred you were: whether you knew your asparagus fork from your dessert fork. That's surprising when you consider that the fork is the upstart of eating utensils, arriving relatively late on the dining scene. In medieval times, it was used in Europe only as a serving piece. While Italy adopted it for eating during the Renaissance, England really didn't accept the newfangled implement until the second half of the 17th century.We no longer have separate forks for every sort of food; most place settings include only two, a dinner fork and a fork that can be used for salad or dessert.
