Joan Hatfield is all business, from her work leading the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce for the past four years to her labor of love guiding a family of three kids. They're all grown up now, two of them with their own businesses to run. Maybe it's genetic. Born and raised in Texas, Hatfield now lives in Lutherville and works in Towson, where she says the best part of her job is "the people and seeing this Chamber grow and become one of the strongest in the state." As for shopping, she's all business there, too. "I don't usually know what I want, but when I do, I know where I like to go."

Police seek man who robbed jewelry store Baltimore County police continue to seek a man who robbed a Catonsville-area jewelry store of more than $20,000 worth of jewelry Wednesday afternoon. Shortly after 5 p.m., a man entered House of Time in the 5600 block of Baltimore National Pike in the Ingleside Shopping Center and asked to see some rings, police said. After an employee placed a display case containing an assortment of jewelry on the counter, police say, the man, who was trying on rings, suddenly reached into a pocket and made a motion as though he was armed.
