Maryland is in the running for a data storage center with its own sizable power plant, a project planned for the University of Delaware until officials there spiked it amid an uproar over its scale and potential effect on the community. The Data Centers LLC said it's looking in Cecil County and elsewhere in Maryland as well as in Delaware and five other states. The company, which goes by TDC, eventually hopes to build two to three of the projects a year. Now, though, TDC is hunting for land for its inaugural project — which has proved harder to launch than the Pennsylvania firm anticipated.

Any craft-beer devotee will tell you the hardest thing about visiting a craft brewery is getting up to leave. Delaware's Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is encouraging more people to stay by going beyond the welcome mat to the spare bedroom - or 16. Having gained a following for its beers, Dogfish Head captured the attention of foodies by integrating flavorful ingredients into its brews. Now it is breaking new ground this summer by opening the Dogfish Inn, a brewery-themed boutique hotel, to accommodate its perpetual influx of craft-brew heads.

WASHINGTON -- When Washington Wizards head coach Randy Wittman broke the huddle, concluding a pre-draft workout for NBA prospects at the Verizon Center Thursday, Towson forward Jerrelle Benimon proceeded to the sideline with his head down. Benimon took his seat and stared into space, contemplating the last drill of the day during which he missed five of six jump shot attempts. "I couldn't get that last shot," he looked up to tell the first player that approached him. That player was familiar to Benimon - Delaware guard and South Baltimore native Davon Usher.

Concerning the recent discussion in The Sun about seniors leaving Maryland to live in retirement elsewhere ( "Why I love living in Maryland," May 18), I have noticed that some of my friends and acquaintances who are retired school teachers have moved to Delaware. They did not chose to retire to Delaware to be nearer family members, and they certainly not to move to a better climate. They made this decision due to the significantly lower tax rate. Delaware has no sales tax, and their income tax and property tax rates are about two-thirds Maryland's rate.
