The Sun's recent article about breweries hit the nail on the head ("Md. breweries booming," Nov. 10). As the brewers observe, "...a change in the law - like allowing micro-breweries to self-distribute - would encourage more to get into the business. " Modifying Maryland's distribution laws would ultimately benefit consumers by providing greater choice of products made in Maryland. We consumers have been deprived far too long.

Running a medical marijuana operation could cost each grower more than $125,000 a year in fees, a sum so steep some officials believe it may shut out small businesses. Maryland's medical marijuana commission is tentatively proposing that fee for each of the 15 potential growers envisioned for the state's new program. The panel also is recommending a $40,000-a-year charge for dispensaries, according to a draft plan expected to be released for public comment Wednesday. Those license fees - atop as much as $6,000 in application fees - would finance the state's nascent medical marijuana program.

WHEN HARFORD COUNTY began to attract corporations looking to build distribution facilities for their products, some scoffed at the projects as "warehouses" that offered only minimal, low-cost jobs.Whatever weight that argument held, it diminishes with each new project. The other day, Solo Cup Co. announced the final stages of acquisition of a tract near Havre de Grace to build a $20 million warehouse facility.The container-maker's intention to create 75 to 100 jobs initially, and perhaps 250 eventually, is significant in itself, but even more so against the roster of nationally known corporations that have opened similar facilities along Maryland's Interstate 95 corridor in recent years: Mercedes-Benz of North America, Pier One Imports Inc., The Gap, Proctor & Gamble, Saks Fifth Avenue, Michelin Tire Corp.

WASHINGTON -- The federal and state governments could buy childhood vaccines and distribute them free under a plan being considered by the Clinton administration to ensure virtually all U.S. children are vaccinated.At present, the government says, only 40 percent to 60 percent of preschool children get the recommended shots, and in some inner-city neighborhoods the number is just 10 percent. Health officials say the low level of immunization is one reason for outbreaks of measles and other diseases in the last few years.

In the discussions about the status of Harford County's fire and ambulance service, it will be vital to keep in mind that many aspects of the existing system are exemplary. A case in point is the effort two Saturdays ago on the part of members of Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company that resulted in the installation of 123 new smoke alarms in Edgewood's Edgewater Village neighborhood at a rough cost to taxpayers of $2,000. During a two-hour period, 36 fire company members visited 234 homes and found 123 in need of smoke alarms.
