The city takes little nips out of its citizens. Richard Horne can tell you about it. He remembers people sitting on front porches on balmy summer evenings. Now the porches are bare. His was emptied last summer, and now the city's reached for its own piece of the action."Barren porches," Horne was saying yesterday. "Go through my neighborhood in Roland Park, go down toward Charles Village, places where you used to see porches with nice furniture, and now they're barren. Because things are instantly stolen now."

No doubt you've heard of food trucks, but Casey Dyson is taking the traveling food trend to another level with CookieRide -- a self-described “mobile cookie jar.” “I knew I wanted to do something with food,” she says. “I liked the idea of cupcake trucks and the hominess of products such as cupcakes and cookies, but I felt like there were a lot of cupcake trucks out there.” So Dyson, a former baker at Touché Touchet Bakery in Columbia, decided to focus on cookies and opted for a scooter because it's more eco-friendly than a truck.

Firefighters from the Rivers Park Fire Station had only one question for Casey Dyson as they sampled home-baked cookies from her fledgling delivery service: Does she pack cold milk on her scooter? Dyson, a Columbia resident who launched CookieRide in August after four months of paperwork and preparation, carries six varieties of cookies - but no beverages. The firefighters at the Old Columbia Road station gave their approval to her quarter-pound chocolate chip cookies and smaller Power Bites - an original recipe made of nuts, flax seed, and dried blueberries and cherries that was inspired by a physical therapist seeking a snack high in antioxidants.

In a Mount Vernon back street, signs of a curious revival are evident. Twenty vintage Italian motor scooters are neatly aligned in a row. Their riders, standing quietly nearby, have left no detail to chance in their own appearance. Hair is shaped in a sober blunt cut, bangs low to the eye, reminiscent of the early Beatles. Dark sunglasses mask their eyes. They sport short, boxy jackets. Expressions are solemn. Their stance is as tailored as their form -- with feet turned out and hands held behind their backs.

Annapolis has been experiencing a rash of motor scooter thefts as the weather has heated up this summer. Owners have reported some that vanished minutes after they were parked; others were recovered in such bad shape that they were no longer drivable. Police have even recovered scooters they believe were stolen but hadn't yet been reported missing. Police said that in May and June, they received reports of 13 stolen scooters and one attempted theft. They expect scooter thefts to continue through the summer, because that's when the small vehicles get the most use. Barely any are reported stolen during the winter months.
