As a long time resident, I am against the opening of a chain Subway restaurant in Historic Ellicott City ("Subway franchise's entry riles Ellicott City," Feb. 24). Do we not have enough access to Subway restaurants in our surrounding neighborhoods? Do we really want the unique, quaint atmosphere of Main Street to be turned into just another homogenous strip mall? We already have a pawn shop, complete with ultra-tacky walking billboards, as well as numerous high density housing developments planned just around the corner, proposing to bring hundreds of new residents to the area.

David A. Wagner, former deputy secretary of the Maryland Department of Transportation who later headed the Maryland Port Administration, died April 7 of cancer at his home in Mandeville, La. The longtime Pasadena resident was 71. "Dave was a good administrator, and he was a detail guy. He was well liked by his employees and those who worked with him," said Helen Delich Bentley, the former congresswoman and chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission....

By now, many have seen the horrific photograph from the front page of the New York Post ("Police question man in N.Y. subway train death," Dec. 5). A man clings helplessly to the platform of a New York subway seconds before he is struck and killed by an oncoming car. The man who took the photograph was lambasted and humiliated on the Today Show by the supreme judges, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie. They questioned, grilled and toasted the photographer. Their assumption was that the photographer should have been attempting to rescue the man who was shoved onto the path of the oncoming subway car. His reasoning was that he took multiple photographs with the flash to try to call attention to the car engineer to get him to stop.

A wise man once sang the words “If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere! It's up to you New York, New York!” And he wasn't lying! Tonight, we join all of the McKinley High graduates as they are apparently a few months into their adventures in the Big Apple, the only one who seems to be truly enjoying herself is Rachel Berry. Her producer wants to thank her for being such a hard worker and good sport with Santana quitting, so he rewards her with 24/7 access to her very own Town Car. Rachel begins to lose sight of who she is and where she came from, as she tends to do once things are on the up and up for her. She opens the episode with the Petula Clark's 1964 hit song “Downtown,” and the rest of the cast joins in with her in their own respective adventures around the city.

First, a man wearing a sandwich board advertising a new cash-for-gold store raised eyebrows along historic Ellicott City's eclectic Main Street. Now, a laborer is emptying debris from a former bakery that in May, according to a small sign in the window, will become a Subway sandwich franchise — the first chain store in recent memory. It's all very disturbing to some of the more protective independent local merchants, craftspeople and visitors who come to the old mill town for its quirky appeal.

I wanna say thank you to the person who found my license and mailed it back to me. Good to know somebody here has common sense. Have you noticed Subway commercials always make it look so good? And advertisers on the radio talk about “meat piled up,” but when you get there, they don't want to give you any meat. Am I the only one seeing this? C'mon, Subway, we need more meat. Quiznos, here I come. The end of the world scenario I most fear is being stuck on a desert island with John-John Williams.

I heartily agree with Eileen Pollock when she says that she can't overstate how pleasant Baltimoreans are ("Baltimore is no New York," Jan.14). I moved to Baltimore from out of state seven years ago and have been struck by the friendliness and helpfulness of everyone. Ms. Pollock then proceeds to make some generalizations about daily life in Baltimore, unsupported by evidence, and seems to contradict her initial description of the city as a relaxed, friendly place. She says Baltimore is totally car dependent while New York is easy to navigate on public transportation.

Michael Phelps continued his global mystery tour this week with a trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to film his newest Subway commercial with soccer legend Pele. The mystery, of course, is whether Phelps will swim for more gold medals when Brazil hosts the 2016 Olympics. Phelps coyly evaded the speculation again in Sao Paulo, where he joked to a French news agency that his potential comeback is "the million-dollar question. " Phelps sent a strong signal that he's considering a comeback when he rejoined the international drug testing pool , meaning he could compete in 2014 if he chooses.

Thanks for the recent article highlighting two businesses that are working to provide healthier food choices in Baltimore ("Two city stores move to close health gap," June 18). I work in the office complex next to Apples & Oranges, one of the highlighted businesses, and have the luxury of being able to purchase lunch once or twice a week when I am at the office. Until the opening of Apples & Oranges, there weren't great options in the area, only McDonald's, Wendy's and Subway.

With today's official start of Metro service to a new subway station at Johns Hopkins Hospital, city and state officials should take steps to determine the future of mass transit in Baltimore.The Metro was conceived as a 77-mile system with six lines. Today it has only one complete line -- the northwestern 14-mile route to Owings Mills. The Johns Hopkins leg could easily be the beginning of a northeastern route to White Marsh. But the high price means that is unlikely to happen.This short, 1.5-mile leg, which includes new stations at the Shot Tower as well as Hopkins, cost $343 million.

This week, Maryland transit officials unveiled their latest expansion plans to get riders to abandon their autos and hop aboard new subway and light-rail lines that, if built over the next 20 years, will speed them to White Marsh, Dundalk, Towson, Fells Point, the Inner Harbor East or Arundel Mills Mall. Ambitious? Yes. New? Not really. For nearly a century, Baltimore transit planners and officials of the now-vanished United Railways and Electric Co. and the Baltimore Transit Co. have offered plans on how to relieve Baltimore of its transit woes and offer comprehensive and reliable service.

I was flying home with my kids a few days ago, and we stopped at Subway in the airport. After answering all their other questions -- "What kind of bread? Which cheese? Toasted or not? What toppings?" -- one of the questions floored me. "Girl or boy?" I was confused because Subway's kids' meals aren't usually as polarized as some -- where, say, at McDonald's, the Hot Wheels must be for the boys and the Hello Kitty for the girls. Never mind the fact that the time my son found a cat toy in his dinner bag, he was thrilled, or that plenty of girls love cars, too. "Huh?"
