A outdated state-owned pier along an industrial stretch of Canton waterfront is one step closer to landing on the open market. The Maryland Board of Public Works approved a request by the Maryland Port Administration on Wednesday to declare the pier and its water access rights as surplus to the state's needs, the first step toward selling the property. The 346,000-square-foot Clinton Street Marine Terminal pier and the narrow half-acre piece of land it attaches to along South Clinton Street in the Canton Industrial Area are valued between $2.5 million and $3.1 million.

Peter Bowe and his wife, Barbara Stewart, chose their waterfront townhome for its location. An end unit at the tip of a pier in the HarborView complex, the home soars next to Baltimore's harbor, affording spectacular views, a stellar seat for Pier Six concerts and a quick, five-minute commute to Bowe's job as president of Ellicott Dredges in South Baltimore. “I describe it by saying you can fish out of every room in the house except the kitchen,” quips Bowe. “You look out the window every day, and you're connected to the city and the water,” Stewart continues, “but it's remarkably quiet.” Bowe, 58, and Stewart, 51, a retired executive at JP Morgan, share a life goal of spending more time with friends and family, and this house, which they purchased a year ago, is an idyllic spot.

Ruth's Chris has had a good long run in Pier 5 Hotel. It opened in the hotel's main restaurant space in 2005. But nothing seems to work in hotel's smaller restaurant space. The Peacock Grill, Pizzazz Tuscan Grill and My Panini have come and gone. But that space has an amenity that Ruth's Chris doesn't have -- a waterfront deck. Actually, that deck hasn't always been there, and none of the cafes ever took full advantage of it. Now, Ruth's Chris at Pier 5 has taken over both the cafe space, which it will be using as a banquet facility and the adjoining deck, which they will open Wednesday through Sunday nights.

A 100-foot tugboat sank off Pier 3 in Locust Point on Saturday night. The tugboat Kaleen McAllister sank before 10 p.m., Mike Reagoso, the vice president of Mid-Atlantic operations for McAllister Towing, said Sunday. No one was injured in the incident, Reagoso said. Everyone had left the boat by the time it sank, said Petty Officer David Marin, a Coast Guard spokesman operating out of Baltimore's Curtis Bay yards. "It is too early to determine what the extent of the damage may be, but the submersion of the tug is not expected to interfere with any harbor operations or any port operations," Reagoso said in a statement.

Far from the smoothest production imaginable, and a little too reminiscent of a typical, lightweight PBS fundraiser, the "Star-Spangled Spectacular" concert Saturday night at Pier Six nonetheless delivered a decent level of entertainment for a sizable, enthusiastic crowd. In his opening remarks, the host, actor John Lithgow, called the program "a tribute to a great national treasure, American music. " That meant mostly the pop side of the musical spectrum, of course, since this event was nationally broadcast and nothing too classical would likely have been approved.

With more than 20 years of experience, R&B singer Joe has had a front-row seat to watch the genre evolve.  And in 2014, the 41-year-old singer born Joseph Thomas believes R&B needs to remember romance - and being in love with more than only yourself - still matters. To him, the influence of rap's street bravado has chilled a genre that has long identified with warmth. “I just want it to be a little bit more about love and more about respect, and to talk about things that's going on right now, as opposed to bigging yourself up and making yourself look real smooth and fly,” Joe said on the phone earlier this week from New Jersey.

How can it have been 38 years since Heart's “Magic Man” became an FM radio staple? Saturday night at Pier Six Pavilion, before a near-sold-out house, the Wilson sisters - lead singer Ann with guitarist Nancy - and their band's latest incarnation played a tight, straight-ahead 90-minute set short on spontaneity and surprises, but plenty long on the propulsive rock 'n' roll that earned Heart a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their fans clearly loved it, and for good reason: this was classic rock with an oomph, a well-oiled hit machine that shows little sign of wearing down anytime soon.

With a decade-long career that has survived several member departures and includes four stylistically different albums, Panic! at the Disco and its musical trajectory have been anything but ordinary. Sunday night's wide-ranging show at Pier Six Pavilion reflected the emo-turned-alternative-rock trio's unpredictable career. Following two opening acts (Magic Man and Walk the Moon), Panic! hit the stage with high-energy tracks (“Vegas Lights,” “Time to Dance”). The heat of the summer night led to a quick and necessary costume change for frontman and multi-instrumentalist Brendon Urie.

Recent articles in The Sun about the Recreation Pier in Fells Point have said that it was built to store port cargo ( "Kevin Plank's Recreation Pier hotel plan moves forward ," June 9). That was just one of its uses. The city's main purpose in building the pier was to provide harbor access to the public and recreation for the citizens of Baltimore, the waterfront then "being entirely owned and controlled by the railroads, private corporations and individuals," according to a 1914 engineering report on the pier.
