The plan represents County Executive James N. Robey's desire to accomplish three major goals: consolidate government offices in one place, renovate and modernize the 1970s vintage George Howard complex on Court House Drive, and prepare the government for the next 30 years of growth.

No one makes whiskey any longer on Sollers Point Road in Dundalk, where the old distillery stands empty, the weeds poke through the paving and graffiti marks the brick walls. Joseph E. Seagram & Sons closed its bottling plant there in the late 1980s, and it's been empty for years, considered an eyesore by many neighbors and the scene of several recent fires. The latest owner of these desolate 14.5 acres is planning a redevelopment, and one of his ideas involves moving county-owned offices there, freeing up a nearby property for "big box" stores at one of the biggest crossroads in Dundalk.

It is that time of year when all levels of government attempt to convince us that there is no Christmas holiday. That this is simply a winter thing. What a joke. Like the appearance of or the mention of a religious symbol somewhere in, on or near a public building will some how create a religion. If these people want to be taken seriously they would not close schools, government offices, etc. during this winter thing. Fortunately, most citizens see this for what it is, stupid. And, to all, including those in charge, a very Merry Christmas.
