Your recent editorial "It's Miller Time?" (Dec. 18) severely misrepresented the impact that raising the tax on beverage alcohol will have on the state of Maryland and its hospitality industry. As a Maryland resident and employee of Diageo, which employs more than 300 Maryland residents at our local bottling plant in Relay, I'm concerned that you are downplaying the potential damage of this tax. It's the hardworking citizens - like those who work on our bottling line - who will bear the brunt of this tax. Raising taxes on consumer products always means job losses.

The team behind McHenry Row and Canton Crossing is planning offices for the Phillips Food headquarters and warehouse in Locust Point the group purchased in November. Mark Sapperstein's 28 Walker Development bought the 1215 East Fort Avenue site in November, said partner Abraham Rosenthal. The nine-plus acre property, which includes two buildings and housed a Coca-Cola bottling plant before Phillips, sold to MCS Fort Avenue LLC for $18.4 million, according to state records. "We like Locust Point a lot," said Rosenthal, noting a growing number of technology businesses and that the mixed-use McHenry Row project, close to the new property, has filled its 85,000-square feet of office space and found tenants for 98 percent of its retail and apartment spaces.  Under Armour, which currently leases the first floor of the Phillips headquarters building, is planning to add a second floor to its current footprint at the "Building 1" East Fort Avenue site, Rosenthal said.

The biggest problem in analyzing Howard County Executiv Charles I. Ecker's tenure is getting past the fact that he is an extraordinarily decent and conscientious man.Time and again during his first two years in office, Mr. Ecker has shown himself to be above the muck of petty politics.In his handling of the county's thorny budget problems, he has been almost Solomon-like in his determination to be fair. At the same time, he has delivered in spades on his pledge to make himself and county government more accessible.
