Your story about the closure of the last Stop Shop Save grocery stores in Baltimore is yet another sad example of why the city should move to repeal the bottle tax ( "Stop Shop Save to close remaining Baltimore locations," July 22). The bottle tax is hurting independent grocery stores like Stop Shop Save. This legislation, which exists nowhere else in the country, has made it nearly impossible for city-based grocers to compete with stores across the county line that don't have to pay the tax. The beverage container tax was increased on July 1, 2013, by 3 cents for every bottle and can of water, iced tea, soft drinks and juices.

"Mr. Beverage" is back at the Midtown. Nathan Beveridge, who owned the Midtown Yacht Club in Mount Vernon from 1998 to 2005, is back at the helm, the interim operators having been pushed overboard in November. And that's the last of the nautical references, because the Midtown Yacht Club is now Midtown BBQ & Brew. You can just call it "Midtown," Beveridge says. Many folks always did anyway. In the 1990s, Beveridge earned a following, along with, inevitably, the "Mr. Beverage" nickname, at the bygone Conservatory high atop the Peabody Court Hotel, where the views of Mount Vernon were giddy.

Maryland's largest distributor of wine and spirits is moving its headquarters to White Marsh, taking more than 500 jobs from Anne Arundel to Baltimore County. Baltimore County officials said Wednesday that Reliable Churchill will consolidate its offices and warehouses at a new facility at Baltimore Crossroads @95, a 1,000-acre, mixed-use business park on Route 43 near Interstate 95. The site's size helped attract Reliable Churchill — as did the proximity to the interstate and the port of Baltimore, said Jim Lighthizer, a principal with Chesapeake Real Estate Group, which is developing the new 449,200-square-foot facility with Industrial Income Trust, a Denver-based real estate investment trust.
