Since 2010, patrons have flocked to Canton's Bare on the Square waxing center for one thing: a Brazilian wax that's done in half the time of those at most salons. The $65, 10-minute Bare Down There Brazilian wax is a claim to fame for co-owners Melissa Jacobson and Stephanie Casey. Now they're expanding their business into all-natural skin care with a second location, Bare Skinlabs in Lutherville's Green Spring Station. The new space, which opened at the end of January, is small but efficient.

When Ben Benokraitis bought a solar-powered water heater for his Baltimore County home two years ago, the installation company told him he'd get about $800 a year in payments to help offset the cost. That money would come from the sale of three Solar Renewable Energy Credits, or SRECs, his small system would create each year. His solar installer would broker the sales and send him a check. But instead of the $1,600 he expected in the past two years, Greenspring Energy passed along $225.25 — payment for a single credit — before laying off its workers and locking the doors to its home office in Timonium at the end of January.

By the end of the decade, about 15 percent of the county's populace will be 60 or older. And according to the county's Department of Aging, the subdivision is second only to Dade County, Fla., in how fast the number of its senior citizens is growing.

Even Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan has warned that investors may be too optimistic about rising stocks.But nervous investors should take heart.There are a number of "defensive" mutual funds designed to perform well in falling markets.

It's hard not to think: Why hasn't all this gorgeous landscape been ruined, as close as it is to downtown Baltimore? It's taken me a while to realize why the areas such as the Worthington and Greenspring valleys remain so unspoiled. This week, at a little Victorian house on Pennsylvania Avenue in Towson, I held a 50-year-old report whose precepts have cast a long shadow.
