There's reason for a bit more cautious optimism about the economic outlook these days after there was a bit of an uptick in applications for new residential building permits. Certainly, the news comes as a mixed bag. Permit numbers were up in 2011 compared to the previous two years, which were terrible. And the numbers of four years ago at the peak of the most recent housing boom were not up to the highs of the 1980s, either in terms of raw numbers or percentage of growth in county residences.

The day has finally arrived, Wegmans fans. The chain's first store in Harford County opened its doors to a warm - and packed - reception. The Abingdon Wegmans has been a long time coming, taunting shoppers that would exit off or head toward I-95 with its giant sign and clock atop the hill at the Boulevard at Box Hill. But the torment is over - the grocery store had its grand opening 7 a.m. Sunday. Wegmans was prepared for the onslaught of hungry and eager customers. Police cars blocked off certain lanes and employees directed traffic to ease the congestion and the frustration of finding a parking spot.

(410) 515-3662 or (410) 569-1788.It's the proverbial carryout: a plain storefront in a strip shopping center on a busy street. Even pushing open the glass plate door doesn't reveal any surprises inside. There are a few arcade games, several ho-hum tables and chairs, and the usual cooking aromas -- fried onions and sizzling french fries.
