Most builders decorate their model homes with lavish, expensive furniture. But at Riverside in Harford County, Keystone Homes of Bel Air is furnishing its models with goods from J. C. Penney, IKEA, Sears and K-mart.The homes being built at Riverside, a huge multi-use development in Belcamp, 10 miles south of Havre de Grace, are modest, comfortable and aimed at first-time homebuyers. Keystone figured it made sense to decorate the models with goods prospective buyers would likely use."Affordability is a major issue," said Keystone President Robert W. McGee.

The conversion of a modest rowhouse into a bar inherits a problem with no obvious solution: What to do with such a limited space? These types of bars often rely on cosmetic tweaks like fresh paintjobs or new light fixtures to convey change. The results are usually improvements - recent examples include Shotti's Point in Riverside, Canton's Silks and Cockey's in Upper Fells Point - but rarely do these new businesses feel like drastic transformations. Bar Liquorice is a recent exception.

The county is studying a plan to create an emergency and day shelter for the homeless in Riverside Business Park using funds from the sale of a proposed shelter in a nearby Abingdon neighborhood, officials said Friday. Plans for the site surfaced earlier last week, after frustrated activists and County Council members - who were left out of plans to put a day shelter next to a Catholic elementary school in Bel Air - told the administration of County Executive James M. Harkins that the behind-closed-doors strategy it has been using to address the issue is a failure.

Pizza, life's cheesy cure-all, makes a strong case as the ideal bar food because it's easy to share and rarely fails to please a crowd. The fact it goes hand-in-hand with beer helps, of course.  And while Baltimore is not often associated with pizza, the city has plenty of bars that serve high-quality pies and drinks in comfortable tavern settings. Verde, Birroteca, Johnny Rad's, HomeSlyce, Barfly's and Joe Squared have a verve all their own.  So let us highlight one more cozy pub deftly marrying pizza and a thoughtful bar program: Hersh's Pizza & Drinks in Riverside.

Although Belcamp is often overshadowed by larger, better-known neighbors such as Bel Air, Abingdon and Aberdeen, its residents like what it has to offer and its off-the-beaten-path location. Belcamp, in southern Harford County, is better known for its industry - the Bata Shoe Co. and tenants of the Riverside Business Park such as General Electric, Mercedes-Benz and the McCormick spice company - than its neighborhoods. In fact, the residential portion of Belcamp can be narrowed to only two communities, Riverside and Water's Edge.

GREENSBORO -- All the beds have been made. The maid's tip envelopes rest on the nightstands, next to the alarm clocks. In the dining room, sugar packets and cups are stacked neatly on a buffet table, ready for the morning coffee rush. But no one will be sleeping at the Riverside Hotel tonight. No one has slept there in almost two years. And despite a $1 million renovation that took years to complete, no one in this tiny Eastern Shore town has any guess when, or even if, the once-bustling landmark will be back in business.

People were walking and jogging, there were kids playing on the jungle gym. Everyone smiled and said, 'Hello' to each other.

There's a new study about the public costs and benefits of growth at the residential-business community of Riverside that tells us what we mostly already know.To wit, business development generates more tax income than it requires in county services. And communities with fewer children in school are in a break-even situation, using as much in county services as they pay in.The study by Legg Mason Realty Group, commissioned by BLC Properties, the development owner, concluded that business-industrial components of Riverside generated 2.5 times more in taxes than their demand for county services.

In early December, a Facebook post announced a change had come to a Riverside haunt: “Hey guys. It's no longer Paul's bar ... we are under new ownership but not much else is going to change.” Shotti's Point had arrived, but it was the second part of the message that mattered most. From 2000 to 2013, Paul Zang turned the Fort Avenue corner bar into a no-nonsense hangout for neighborhood patrons of all ages. I unknowingly stumbled upon Paul's one summer night in 2012, and happily played pool as the gregarious Zang chatted with regulars and Led Zeppelin played over the speakers.

Literary legend has it that James Michener saw a great blue heron above the St. Michaels property he was inspecting and immediately decided to buy the 25 acres and the old house that sat on a creek off the Choptank River, near the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay. It was an omen, he is said to have concluded. This would be where he researched and wrote his next expansive historical novel, "Chesapeake," which would be published in 1978. He called the retreat "Southwind" for the unceasing breeze that blew up the bay. It was the same kind of epiphany that struck Dr. Paul and Anne Yarbrough Gurbel of Baltimore, who had been searching for a weekend home in St. Michaels for two years.

Dirty Oars Tavern was dead at 11 p.m. on a recent Saturday. It wasn't just slow; there were no patrons in the new Riverside bar. Some bartenders might have used the downtime to pack the bar up early or to fiddle on their smartphone. But not Larry, the middle-aged owner sporting a Cal Ripken Jr. jersey behind the bar. He warmly engaged our group from the moment we entered the former home of Lime, a tequila bar that closed a couple years ago. Retaining the same layout as Lime, Dirty Oars is quaint without feeling cramped.

A woman walking through Riverside Park in South Baltimore early Sunday was attacked and sexually assaulted, and city police are asking for help in locating a suspect, authorities said on Tuesday. The incident occurred 10 days after a couple was robbed at gunpoint at East Clement and Covington streets, a few blocks south of the park which runs along East Randall Street, between Johnson and Covington streets. City police released scant details of the latest attack, and only after inquiries from The Baltimore Sun. The police then issued a news release to all the city's media.
