Historic Aigburth Vale in Towson may be rescued yet.A failed proposal by builder Martin P. Azola to redevelop the deteriorating, county-owned villa could be resurrected if the burgeoning Regional Economic Studies Institute (RESI) at Towson University decides to relocate there."They would be the perfect tenant," Azola said. "The trick is to get them to fit."But the economic research program, which has grown from 23 employees to more than 70 since becoming associated with the university last year, also is eyeing other properties.

Vale Tudo, the eye-catching Fells Point bar that opened last winter, will now be known as The Rockwell, according to general manager B.J. Parker. The new name debuts tonight. The name "Vale Tudo," which means "anything goes" in Portuguese, was a misnomer, he said. "Vale Tudo didn't fit with what we were trying to do with the rock 'n' roll image of the club," Parker said. Other changes are coming to the new Rockwell. Parker said the aim is to "be more of a tavern," which means adding another projector that will display live sporting events.

Even before it officially opened yesterday, Aigburth Vale Senior Community was a success - at least in Nita Hughes' eyes. The retired nurse was "the guinea pig," she says, the first resident of the new independent-living facility at 212 Aigburth Road in Towson. She moved in the day after Thanksgiving and immediately established a radio link with her grandchildren. They live a few houses away on a side street, and their walkie-talkies have enough range to reach her apartment. "It's a joy to be here," says Hughes.

If a new proposal for dilapidated Aigburth Vale in Towson is approved, the former villa of one of the 19th century's most famous comedians will become housing for the elderly.The $5.5 million plan, recently submitted to Baltimore County officials, calls for building 70 one-bedroom apartments -- six in the historic mansion and 64 in a four-story addition behind the main house. A glass-enclosed breezeway would connect the buildings."We think it's a wonderful project that won't impact a lot of people," said Leo J. D'Aleo, who heads the development company Aigburth Vale LLC. "The project would be an asset to the community."

At dawn one recent morning, Betty Thomas looked through her bungalow window on Roland Avenue in Bel Air and counted 13 cars jetting down Vale Road. Betty Baynes parked her car a little farther down from there last May and, in one hour, counted 2,300 cars passing through the intersection of Vale Road and county Route 924. And earlier this month, county engineers counted 1,866 cars going through the same intersection during a morning rush hour. Still, studies show traffic delays are at acceptable levels, so county officials don't see much of a problem.

Azola, who was picked by Baltimore County to restore and renovate the 1868 mansion, says he can't proceed without financial help from the county. But county officials, who are selling the ramshackle property for $500, say they never planned to contribute money to the project."Negotiations have ceased," Shirley Murphy, chief of the county Bureau of Land Acquisition, said Friday.

From: Eden Valley, Australia Price: $19 Serve with: Salmon, crab, poultry, ham In Australia, there's no need for wineries to label Riesling as dry. Consumers there wouldn't have it any other way. For U.S. sales they often label it as dry so it won't be confused with the sugar water many American wineries produce. This is simply a classic example of how well the world's best white wine grape performs Down Under. It's intensely flavorful and elegant, with hints of kiwi, lime, citrus peel and slate.

After an extensive search, Harford County officials have settled on a site for an elementary school that is intended to relieve crowding in the Bel Air area. The 23-acre property on Vale Road near Red Pump Road north of Bel Air will not be the easiest to reach or the least costly on which to build, but county ownership makes it the most practical choice, officials say. "This is not the best of sites, and only about half of it is developable," said Kathleen Sanner, school system director of planning and construction.
