"It's open and jamming," said Scott Just, the general manager of the resort near Cumberland. "There's a couple hundred people in there. They were pressing up against the ropes. " The $35 million casino, located in what was the lakeside golf resort's conference center, will be open around the clock.

One overlooked victim of globalization is corporate community citizenship. As CEOs, bankers and investors all attempt to squeeze every last penny of shareholder value, we have lost sight of how corporations can and should shape and define values within a community. Three decades ago, CEOs like Jack Moseley, Hank Butta and BGE's George McGowan ran their businesses and built community. They worked together and invested their assets in making this city better. Sadly, they are no longer admired or regarded highly for their important involvement in the redevelopment of Baltimore's downtown.

Editor: I am a resident of Cedarday Drive. I just read your article in The Aegis on-line. I believe that you only have one side of the story and should spend some time and understand our concerns. The county government including Mr. Craig have not been interested in listening to our viewpoint. In fact, his secretary told one of my neighbors that he did not want to talk to "those people!" It seems as though this project is going to go through despite the outcome of the meeting on the 21st.

Even though there was no formal lighting ceremony this year, an Edgewood couple wants to remind their fellow residents that the community's Christmas tree is alive, well and fully decorated. Sam and Donna Gibson, longtime residents active in the community, say they made sure the tree near the Edgewood MARC station did not go neglected. Standing next to the tree Thursday morning, the Gibsons wanted to remind everyone that even though there was not an official tree lighting because of construction by the station, the tree is decorated and lit at night for people to come and see. The Gibsons both talked about how grateful they are for the community and the people in it. They said they just wanted to make sure they could spread some holiday cheer.
