The Board of County Commissioners on May 24 unanimously approved a $1.066 million bid for construction of the first phase of the planned Leister Regional Park in Hampstead. Commissioner Haven Shoemaker reminisced on the late Bub Leister, for whom the park is named. Leister sold the land to the county more than 10 years ago before his death in 2006. "He sold it to the county for about half of what those guys were offering because he wanted it to be preserved as a green space for his community," Shoemaker said.

If you own shares in Jos. A. Bank or run a small business in the Carroll County town of Hampstead, where the menswear company is headquartered, your reasons for caring about the outcome of the current hostilities between Joe Bank and the Men's Wearhouse are obviously financial. Not so much for the rest of us. For the rest of us, the interest lay in the bidding, with Joe Bank, the Men's Wearhouse and Eddie Bauer all caught up in a five-month, corporate-takeover drama. Someone could have produced a reality TV show about all this by now: Bank's attempt to buy Men's, Men's attempt to buy Bank, Bank buying Bauer, and Men's getting ticked off about the whole thing.

A New York hedge fund's push to force Hampstead-based Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. to negotiate with suitor Men's Wearhouse could make it more difficult for Bank to fight off the rival chain's $1.61 billion hostile takeover attempt. Eminence Capital LLC, a major shareholder in both companies, asked a Delaware court Monday to force the men's retailer to consider the offer from the Houston chain and to stop Bank from acquiring another retailer to thwart the bid. Eminence, which owns 4.9 percent of Bank's common stock and is Men's Wearhouse's largest shareholder, also sent a letter Monday to Bank's board urging it to pursue the Houston chain's proposed merger.

Men's Wearhouse suddenly likes the way Jos. A. Bank Clothiers looks. Under pressure from its shareholders after rejecting a takeover by Jos. A. Bank, Men's Wearhouse turned the tables Tuesday, proposing to buy its smaller rival for $1.2 billion.
