Chew on this: Adults — not children — account for 65 percent of gummi candy consumption in the United States. And that appetite is growing, if Haribo of America Inc.'s sales are any indication. U.S. sales for the Woodlawn-based division of the German candy maker have grown in double digits in each of the past five years, and more than 20 percent in 2011, said Christian Jegen, president of Haribo of America. Known for inventing gummi bears, Haribo began mass-marketing the fruity, chewy candy in the United States in the 1980s.

Randy Myers might technically be in the business of selling books, but he says he doesn't fret the impact the Internet or e-readers is having on the business, recently opening his second Collector's Corner comic book shop in February in Harford County. “People want to hold [comics] in their hand,” Myers said. “It's the tactile nature of the comic book that gives it more of a chance at surviving the digital age. It's not just the words, but it's the illustrations.” The shop prides itself on its selection of popular titles, such as the widely known series-turned-hit-TV-show “The Walking Dead,” the classic DC and Marvel Comics brands and small stapled comics from obscure indie brands such as Microcosm Publishing.

It's . . .250 channels!Yes, it's satellite TV, strange visitor above our own planet, with powers that far outstrip those of ordinary cable.It's a tube-lover's dream, that's for sure, as I discovered during my first wander through the back roads of the sky. Recently, with a satellite descrambler remote in my hands for the first time (at my sister's house in the cable-less countryside of rural Michigan), I sat down to take a quick look -- and ended up glued to the sofa.

IT'S THE oldest story in show biz, isn't it? Four 30-ish guys who love to sing and dance and act finally get their big break the way so many struggling artists do: playing a "boy band" in a BGE commercial warning kids not to touch downed power lines. Oh, sure, happens every day. The band is called the Electric Boyz - hey, this is a utility company bankrolling this baby, not Puffy Combs - and their 30-second spot gets a heavy rotation on MTV, Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network, which allows the boyz, er, boys, to dream that maybe some heavy hitter in the recording industry will notice them and throw fistfuls of money at them so they can quit their days jobs as a hair-stylist, fork-lift operator, waiter and youth counselor.
