In response to the article "Zoning changes OK'd for swim clubs, Woodbine farm" (March 8), I again note that an exception has been made in the west county for a single individual. The article specifically states that "the legislation is aimed to help Larriland farm. " Infringing on a group's rights and quality of life just to benefit one entity seems to have become common practice (see the Walker case in Woodbine). Evidently, county government has evolved to protect the needs of the one over the needs of the many ("The proposal drew opposition from several farmers")

That's a challenge now being tackled by a crop of Maryland-based initiatives aimed at helping veteran entrepreneurs. The organizers of a first-of-its-kind venture capital fund for veteran-owned businesses are trying to narrow the investment gap. Others have created a technology incubator to encourage veterans to specialize in cyber-related business.

DAQUIZHUANG, China -- A slogan on a wall along the rutted road to this small North China village exhorts everyone to take "economic construction as the center." The message is hardly necessary here.Daquizhuang, once one of the poorest places in these parts, is now one of the richest villages in all China. It is rural China's equivalent of paradise.The village's 4,400 full-time residents enjoy per capita incomes more than five times China's average of about $330 a year. They receive free housing, utilities, medical care and education to boot.

DAGAO VILLAGE, China -- Here the part of China's ailing economy that still works boils down to a deceptively simple scene: A spare workshop about 20 miles southeast of Beijing where a handful of women stand under bare light bulbs sealing pieces of plastic together with flat irons to make plastic bags.Another group of women in an adjacent shed then stencils each bag by hand with the standard English-language warning: "This is not a toy." After that, the bags -- Dagao Village turns out about a million of them a year -- are sold to a Beijing company that makes shirts for lucrative foreign markets.

Much of the landmark Inner Harbor developments are in the neighborhood of three decades old (Harborplace turned 30 officially in 2010), which lands them somewhere short of historic. Unfortunately, the project's genesis is fading even as many of the pioneers behind it, from James Rouse to William Donald Schaefer, have exited the stage, too. How many remember what the Inner Harbor looked like before there were shops, an aquarium and other tourism attractions? A half-century ago it was rotting warehouses and piers.

Close to 300 commercial properties in Baltimore are getting a property tax break this year thanks to the city's Enterprise Zone program, which has a stated purpose of attracting development and jobs to poorer areas. But while the benefits were spread among 80 city neighborhoods, most parts of town didn't see big breaks, according to a Baltimore Sun analysis of city tax records. In almost half the neighborhoods, the tax break for all owners - collectively - didn't hit $10,000.

In 1982, Mayor William Donald Schaefer persuaded state lawmakers to try a different approach to urban revitalization. To lure companies to poorer parts of Baltimore and elsewhere in Maryland, the government would dangle a 10-year property tax discount and hiring rebates. Baltimore's first so-called Enterprise Zone was carved from a depressed section of Lower Park Heights called Park Circle, where a sausage plant and other businesses opened their doors. Thirty years later, Baltimore has greatly expanded its program, offering multimillion-dollar tax breaks to developers in many of the city's most desirable neighborhoods.

At a packed City Council hearing Wednesday, residents of Perkins Homes public housing, area clergymen and other residents blasted the $88 million in property tax breaks the planned $1 billion Harbor Point development is set to receive, arguing that a portion of the money should be used to help the poor. "You should not have luxury communities by developing off of the misery in the city," said Rev. Alvin C. Hathaway, Sr. of Union Baptist Church.  The committee hearing was called by City Councilman Carl Stokes, who has accused the Baltimore Development Corporation, the city's quasi-public development arm, of drawing an inappropriate map so that Harbor Point could received Enterprise Zone tax credits -- which are meant for impoverished areas -- that it could not have qualified for on its own. Stokes has alleged that Harbor Point is specifically taking advantage of the poverty in the Perkins Homes to receive its tax breaks, an allegation the BDC denies.
