The premise behind Stone's Cove Kitbar, a new restaurant in Owings Mills, is that people at a party tend to gather in the kitchen, where they are kept entertained and diverted by watching their host prepare dinner. Why not, thought B.J. Stone, the CEO and founder of Stone's Cove Kitbar, create a restaurant experience that puts diners right in the kitchen - or at least close to it? And, while you're at it, why not put the booze where the kitchen is, just like it would be in someone's house, where the host can fetch guests a cold beer from the fridge or mix a cocktail, and not have to worry about a pot boiling over?

Thousands of traffic signals on the Chesapeake Bay from the mouth of the Susquehanna River to the entrance of the Atlantic Ocean lead cargo ship captains, commercial fishermen and recreational boaters out of harm's way. When they go on the blink, transportation officials call on the ANTs. A dozen men and women at Baltimore's Coast Guard station make up the Aids to Navigation Team, responsible for maintaining buoys, markers and lighthouses. They change light bulbs, scrape and paint metal, and bang out dents caused by sloppy seamanship.
