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.

There has been recent discussion of having certain Western Maryland counties secede and become a separate state. In addition, the governor of Texas is running ads touting his state as a better place in which to live and do business. This brings to mind a recent trend that I have noticed. At least some of the people that I know are "voting with their feet. " As a retired school teacher, many of my friends and acquaintances are retired school teachers. In recent years, some of these retired school teachers have moved to Delaware.

By the time Friday arrives we're all tired of playing in the same sandbox. We need a little freedom and creativity. A little time away from the co-worker who frequently piles up all of his dirt on your turf. Maybe if the playing field was a little bigger, say the size of a beach, we wouldn't have to draw a line in the sand. The Sandcastle Contest at Rehoboth Beach is the perfect place to test that theory — and maybe even work a bit on those team building skills. The annual event on the Delaware shore, sponsored by the Rehoboth Beach- Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce, draws hundreds of contestants and spectators and awards prizes for both adults and children.

My wife and I are both over 65 and we have found it too expensive to continue living in Maryland. We have purchased a new home in a 55 and over community in Delaware where the property taxes will be one-third what we pay in Baltimore County. Other costs such as car tags and license fees are also lower, and there is no state sales tax at all. We have met other people from Maryland who have bought homes in Delaware, and we all basically left or are leaving for the same reasons.

For the first time in years, Maryland's beloved National Premium is being brewed again - in Delaware. Tim Miller, an Easton realtor, bought the naming rights to the brand last year with plans to bring it back to the market for the first time since it was discontinued in 1996. Last we'd heard from him he'd secured the original recipe and was looking to hire a contract-brewer. That still hasn't happened, but for the past several weeks, he's started brewing the beer's first test batches at Fordham Brewing Company in Dover.

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.

He talked about the debate between Hofstra and Harvard for the final at-large spot, the most exciting first-round game, and the team with the toughest road to the Final Four. Were there any surprises in the bracket?

Despite being cut by the NBA Development League's Delaware 87ers in January, former Patterson guard Aquille Carr hopes to continue his professional career at an even higher level. Carr, 20, said Sunday on his Twitter account that he is entering the 2014 NBA draft. “After consulting with my family, friends, and agent, I will be declaring for the 2014 NBA Draft,” Carr wrote on Twitter. According to many mock drafts, including those on NBADraft.net and DraftExpress.com, Carr is not expected to be selected in the June 26 draft.

In 39 years as a head coach, Delaware's Bob Shillinglaw has seen - and consequently, prepared for - many strategies and tactics from opponents. But even he sounded mystified as to why his team failed to score a goal in the second half of Saturday night's 11-8 loss to Colonial Athletic Association rival Towson (7-2, 1-0). The Blue Hens (5-4 overall and 0-2 in the conference) took just six shots in the final two quarters and seemed to be out of sorts against the No. 20 Tigers' zone defense.

SOMEBODY SMASHES your car windshield to steal the quarter sitting on the dashboard. He's 25 cents richer, but you're out 500 bucks. A fair transaction? Apparently, it's not a problem for authorities in Delaware. Yes, that's right, our neighbors to the east seem to have the instincts of a second-rate criminal -- at least when it comes to business dealings. Recently, Delaware created a new type of corporate tax dodge that is breathtaking in its audacity. Its sole purpose? To help large companies hide profits from states like Maryland.

The Towson men's lacrosse team's most challenging win of 2014 may also have been its most satisfying. Trailing 5-0 in the first quarter, the No. 20 Tigers persisted and persevered as they emerged with an 11-8 win over Delaware at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson on Saturday night. Towson improved to 7-2 overall and 1-0 in the Colonial Athletic Association and extended its winning streak to six games, the program's longest winning streak since 2004 when that squad won eight straight games.
