I like Pen & Quill, the new restaurant on the corner of Charles and Lanvale streets in Station North. It's pretty and comfortable, and the food, from executive chef Bella Kline, is tasty, rib-sticking and satisfying. I sure like it a heckuva lot better than The Chesapeake, which was the name of the previous restaurant that occupied this space. The Chesapeake, which lasted for less than a year, should not be confused with another similarly named establishment, Chesapeake Restaurant, a dining institution that flourished on this corner in the middle of the last century.

"The Violet Quill Reader: The Emergence of Gay Writing After Stonewall," by David Bergman, Ed. 410 pages. New York: St. Martin's Press. Paperback, $14.95David Bergman undertook a noble, ambitious task. He assembled selections of the best published and unpublished chapters, short stories, essays, personal letters and diary entries of America's most prominent gay contemporary writers. Moreover, he explained the literary, historical and social significance of their work. The result is a sophisticated tome that should appeal not only to academics or gay people interested in their cultural heritage, but to lovers of good writing as well.

The original Chesapeake Restaurant was a Baltimore dining institution for more than 50 years until it closed in the late 1980s. After a 24-year dormancy, the doors at 1701 North Charles St. opened in June 2013, with a new restaurant, named The Chesapeake, which was operated by the property's developer, Ernst Valery, and his partners. Valery closed The Chesapeake in May and turned the restaurant space over to the Karzai family, the restaurateurs behind The Helmand (which is named, partly, after the family's oldest son, Helmand Karzai)

"A Midwife Through the Dying Process," by Timothy E. Quill, Johns Hopkins University Press. 239 pages. $24.95It's hard to argue with one of the more memorable contentions of this book: No one should have to die with a plastic bag over his head. (The Hemlock Society recommends the bag as a suicide backup measure if an overdose of barbiturates doesn't do the job.) But by logical extension, in Dr. Timothy Quill's vaguely Orwellian version of compassionate medical care, terminally ill patient who wishes to hasten death should have sanitized, clinical protocols available - and physicians should have not only the freedom, but the responsibility, to administer them.

Helen Hawkins was born in a Dolphin Street rowhouse and later moved with her family to a home on Tyson Street. From her Tyson Street home, she enjoyed watching the elegantly dressed crowd entering the then-segregated Lyric Theatre, said her son, Calvin B. Quill Jr., of Baltimore. "She loved the notion of making beautiful clothes for others to wear," he said.

1964: COAT OF ARMS The Harford County coat of arms was designed by George Van Bibber and adopted by the County Commissioners on Sept. 28, 1964. The shield in the design is gold, which symbolizes the wealth of the county and the richness of its fields. Across the shield are waving bands of blue signifying three major Harford streams - Deer Creek, Bynum Run and Winters Run. The crest is a two-handed forearm with the right hand holding a white quill symbolizing the pen used by those who wrote and signed the Bush Declaration, which supported independence and was signed by Harford residents.

Allen J. Quille, the self-made parking lot magnate who raised millions of dollars for political campaigns and educational causes, died yesterday of pneumonia at Sinai Hospital. He was 82 and lived in the Bare Hills section of Baltimore County. Although he left school at 16, Mr. Quille became ruler of an asphalt empire from Fells Point to Pikesville as president of Quille's Parking Co. and became one of the city's leading African-American businessmen. As a fund-raiser and donor, he directed his skills -- and his wealth -- to Democratic politics at the city, state and national levels, and his political ties brought invitations to dinners at the White House during the Carter and Clinton administrations.
