Congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens on their Super Bowl win! Does anyone have their voice back yet? Now back to our regularly scheduled lives … Countless times I have driven by Stevenson Village, tucked in the crossroads of Stevenson, Old Valley, and Hillside Roads.and never really paid attention to the businesses. The Beall family owned the center eons ago, and the shops were once tenant homes. In the 1940s, there was an auto dealership on the property and in the 1970s, Stevenson Village evolved with 30,000 square feet of space to lease.

As the owner of a flower shop in Aberdeen, I am very concerned with new legislation currently being considered in Congress: the "Marketplace Fairness Act" and the "Marketplace Equity Act," which will add sales tax to Internet sales. This will disproportionately impact small businesses like mine - creating a significant administrative and financial burden that will make it necessary for me to pass on additional costs to my customers. In today's economy, it is irresponsible to place additional burdens on small businesses, which are the engine of our economy.

Eileen Dutterer Gist, owner of Stewart N. Dutterer Flower Shop in Westminster, believes the "flower service hugs where arms can't reach." So when a girl asked Gist to show her how to make a cross of roses for her grandfather's casket, Gist was more than willing to do so. "She wanted to do something special for him, and this was one way I could comfort her," Gist said. Through floral arrangements, the shop has comforted residents or celebrated their joyous events for 81 years. At a time when some of the county's older stores are closing their doors, Dutterer's reigns as Westminster's oldest family-owned and -operated retail business, according to the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce.

From: Trentino, Italy Price: $15 Serve with: Sole, shellfish Somewhere around 95 percent of pinto grigios are neutral, boring wines that don't deserve a minutes thought. Then there are the few that make one believe this varietal does have a soul. Ca' Montini has long been one of the top producers of pinot grigio, but it's hit a new peak of elegance with this intensely focused dry white wine. There are hints of lemon, hazelnut and minerals along with subtle floral aromas – just a hint, not the whole flower shop.

A year ago, the exterior of the Dutterer Flower Shop resembled a rectangular block with an upside down ice cream cone sticking out of its top. Today, the store looks like a life-size Victorian dollhouse - complete with chocolate-brown trim and two turrets, one with stained-glass windows and the other with a display of child-sized figurines singing Christmas carols. It has been more than a year since Westminster's Facade Improvement Program began doling out money to spruce up the city's commercial districts.
