Oliver Speck's Eats & Drinks has closed in Harbor East. The last meal at the barbecue restaurant was Sunday dinner, according to executive chef Jesse Sandlin. Sandlin said that there had been, in the past several months, internal discussions about possibly re-locating Oliver Speck's, but the restaurant's immediate future was uncertain on Monday morning. Oliver Speck's owner Jim Lancaster confirmed that he is selling the business -- the equipment and the liquor license -- but not the Oliver Speck's trade name.

With high-end shopping, award-winning fine dining and a luxury hotel that can count One Direction members as recent customers, Harbor East can safely be called Baltimore's most glamorous neighborhood. When the attractive wine bar Vino Rosina came to Harbor East's Bagby building in May 2010, it seemed like a fine fit. But success isn't guaranteed just because a bar looks the part in an elegant neighborhood, and in July, Vino Rosina smartly hit the restart button. Ownership remains the same, but in its place is now Oliver Speck's, a restaurant focusing on Southern barbecue.

Let it be known that the Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra is in very capable hands.Scott Speck, in his debut concert at the helm, had his 56 musicians in excellent form Sunday evening in a program of Tchaikovsky, Bizet, Brahms and John Adams at Key Auditorium in Annapolis.Mr. Speck, 33, establishes a much different podium persona from that of his predecessor, Arne Running, the emotional Philadelphian who served the CYSO so well in his two seasons here. Where Mr. Running stomped the feet and stabbed the air to inspire his troops, Mr. Speck's kinder, gentler stick work coaxes the players in a less insistent manner.

"Iron Man: The Cal Ripken, Jr. Story," by Harvey Rosenfeld. New York: St. Martin's Press. 276 pages. $22.95 How Cal Ripken Jr. sent the ghost of Lou Gehrig into retreat while en route to supplanting him in the record book - under the heading of "most consecutive games played" - is one of those rare narratives that makes everyone feel so good they want to stand up and cheer. Such is the reaction all over America, even among baseball's uninitiated, many of whom don't care to know the difference between an infield fly and a fly on the wall.

When business stalled at Vino Rosina, an upscale bistro in Harbor East 's Bagby Building, the owners and management did something altogether surprising. They shut down Vino Rosina and reopened, a few week later, in the same space as a barbecue joint named Oliver Speck's. Good for them. There was nothing wrong with Vino Rosina, but, in the long run, there was nothing particularly compelling about it either and little to distinguish it from it Harbor East neighbors, including a few bistros that had moved into the same building.

"A cocktail should still taste like the spirit you are basing it on. " Cocktail purists: Rejoice in this too-often-forgotten mantra from Alec Franklin and his team at the newly opened Oliver Speck's in Harbor East. And yet Speck's, the barbecue- and comfort-food replacement to Vino Rosina, isn't interested in putting on airs with its food and beverage program. Instead, the crew wants to serve up flavorful, fun, down-home fare that takes advantage of local ingredients. To complement the Speck's take on Southern cuisine, the cocktail menu is seasonal and based on bourbons, ryes and other whiskeys.

Earlier this month, the team behind the Harbor East wine bar and restaurant Vino Rosina announced that the restaurant would be closing on July 20. At the time, they said that they were already working on a follow-up concept for the same space in the Bagby building. And they were. Their new restaurant, which will be named Oliver Speck's, will open sometime around the start of Baltimore Restaurant Week , which begins on July 26. Executive chef Jesse Sandlin said the specialty at Oliver Speck's - which is named for her pet Juliana pig - will be comfort food and barbecue.

I became frightened when I read the commentary by Norman Meadow ("Nuclear blows away wind," Feb. 1). I wanted to say so much, but my thoughts were running way beyond the commentary. Just one example: The reactor at Chernobyl still contains enough radioactive material to destroy Europe. The only thing stopping it is a decaying sarcophagus. Mr. Meadow doesn't mention this. Nuclear waste is another example. The very first drop is still around. Reality is, there is nothing that can be done about the waste.

A California scientist using the Hubble Space Telescope has discovered the smallest object ever seen in the Kuiper Belt - the vast region of icy objects beyond the orbit of Neptune. The unnamed object is estimated to be 3,200 feet in diameter - just over a half-mile. Hubble detected it from 4.2 billion miles. The next-smallest known Kuiper Belt object is 30 miles in diameter. CalTech astronomer Hilke Schlichting and her team found the tiny object by scouring 4 1/2 years of data from Hubble's Fine Guidance Sensor.
