BWI Business Partnership's desire to assemble a strategic plan for this important area could not be more timely.While the 80-square-mile area in Linthicum is far from saturated, poorly planned building could do considerable damage to the businesses already in place and destroy the allure for those seeking to locate near BWI.

Ask Neil Shpritz what he's done for the area surrounding Baltimore-Washington International Airport, and he'll tell you all he's done is talk. But it's the fact that business and government leaders listen when the executive director of the nonprofit BWI Business Partnership Inc. opens his mouth that has made the organization, once only transportation-focused, a promotion machine for Central Maryland and an advocate for businesses there. If Maryland's largest airport ever had a partner, it is Shpritz - the gregarious de facto mayor of the BWI Business District, which he envisioned and almost single-handedly defined over the past 10 years.

BWI Airport officials have agreed after years of wrangling to allow a politically connected Prince George's County businessman to participate in a program for minorities at the airport, according to audit findings obtained by The Baltimore Sun on Thursday. Sandy Roberts, who runs Olympic News, one of the biggest retail operations at BWI, had not previously been counted among the minority-owned businesses at the airport because officials said he was not running the company himself. Airport officials said souvenir giant Hudson News, which recruited Roberts as a minority partner, was behind the operation.

Orioles fans who depended on Maryland Transit Administration charter buses to get home from games now face the same deprivation that afflicted Ravens rooters last year. Because of a federal ruling, public transit agencies can no longer provide specialized services geared to sporting events. That includes the buses to Savage, Greenbelt and Washington that the MTA used to offer after games. With the baseball season under way, it has been left to the MTA to break the bad news to fans that they may have to leave before the last out is recorded to make the last transit connection to Washington.
