next week on just up the pike . . .

Outside the Newport School in Calverton, where rising rents may force them to close up shop for good.

You've heard about it, read about it, even charretted about it, but you've probably never seen pictures of the Burtonsville Town Square. Next week, we'll be taking a look at the proposed shopping center - what could have been, what we're getting instead, and what's being built in similar communities across MoCo.

Come back next week and check it out!

The Amish Market in Burtonsville was supposed to close last week. Then they got a two week reprieve. Now the end-date is August 30. The opening date in Laurel is also delayed to later in the fall.

I commute past the new site for the Dutch Country Market and it's hardly an upgrade from their old location. It's a virtually inaccessible run down strip near the county line. The old tenants were Galaxy Furniture, one of the many Laurel furniture stores that shut down after Ikea moved in down the road.
