Nate Weiner used to do most of his grocery shopping at the Wegmans in Hunt Valley and the Giant near his Hampden home. Now he orders most of his groceries online from Relay Foods and picks it up at designated spot on Sundays. "I get most of my produce from them," said Weiner, 26, a mechanical engineer and part-time student. "The local stuff is picked that morning. They're some of the best vegetables I've ever had. " While the aspect of fresh and local food is an attraction, the real selling point for him is convenience.

The Baltimore Sun Media Group is buying up more newspapers ( "Sun purchases Annapolis and Carroll papers," May 2). Why? It cannot seem to adequately manage The Baltimore Sun, its premier publication. After elimination of all competition, Baltimore is left with a third-rate publication that is over-priced, poorly run and apparently devoid of management and editorial staff. As a long-time recipient of home delivery of The Sun, I feel at the mercy of a media mogul group with no regard for its readers or advertisers.

The Sun's daily circulation showed signs of stabilizing in the six months ending Sept. 30, with home delivery - the largest component of the printed newspaper's sales - rising slightly, according to numbers released yesterday by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. Combined readership of The Sun's print edition and its Web site, baltimoresun.com, reached 1.2 million adults on average - or 58 percent of the market. This is the first time the ABC has released total-audience numbers, which newspapers argue is now a more accurate measurement of readership.

Back in the old days in Howard County, if you wanted a carry-out pizza you had to go to your favorite pizza joint and pick it up yourself. By the time you got it home, it was usually cold, soggy and cardboard-flavored (and we liked it!).But then a certain Pizza Delivery Chain appeared on the county scene, and things haven't been the same since. Suddenly, you could get hot, non-soggy pizza delivered in a reasonable amount of time to your door.Not to be outdone by the new kid in town, many of the establishedpizza purveyors began to offer delivery service.

The Baltimore Examiner, the free tabloid that made its debut two years ago, will launch a Sunday edition this summer, cut home delivery of the newspaper to two days a week and reduce by 80 percent the number of papers printed on days it's not delivered. Denver-based Clarity Media Group Inc., which also owns the Washington and San Francisco Examiners, said all three papers would begin Sunday home delivery to targeted neighborhoods July 13. The Baltimore Examiner will be distributed in boxes, by hawkers and at convenience stores Sunday through Friday, with papers also delivered to homes on Thursdays.

The pickups will operate from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Wanda Feagen pulled on her blue United States Postal Service coat and a pair of thick black gloves shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday, blinking against a hard wind and waiting for her mail delivery truck to fill up on gas. "Hoo hoo!" she said of the cold weather. Feagen had just set out from the Gwynn Oak post office after cataloging mail since the start of her day at 7:30 a.m., and was on her way to the rolling residential hills nearby to begin her regular weekend delivery route.

At the Dundalk Post Office this week, news that the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service would stop delivering mail on Saturdays beginning in August was greeted with a mix of apathy and understanding. Twenty-four-year-old Jordan Gillis said he wasn't surprised by the announcement. "It'll just be something that people will adjust to," said Gillis, who was running errands Wednesday for the Dundalk Music Center, where he teaches guitar. Paul Tomczewski, 75, said the announcement seemed to be a sign of a wider issue with government finances.

Online grocer Relay Foods of Charlottesville, Va., is rolling out service Tuesday in Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia and plans to offer groceries from local suppliers and farms through home delivery and, eventually, at pick-up sites. Relay, which until now has operated only in the Charlottesville and Richmond markets, sees untapped demand in Baltimore, Zach Buckner, Relay's CEO, said Monday. The company is expanding thanks to its June acquisition of Washington-based Arganica Farm Club, an online farmers' market now serving Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia.

Effective Sunday, Aug. 6, the price for seven-day home delivery will increase from $12.95 to $13.67 per month. The home delivery price for weekend-only service will increase from $7.70 pTC to $8.23 per month. The rates for daily home delivery (Mon.-Sat.) and for newsstand copies will not change. All rates are subject to a 5 percent Maryland sales tax.The increase is the first for home delivery subscribers in this area since 1990. It is necessary because of sharp increases in the cost of newsprint, our crucial raw material.

Because of the storm, distribution of this morning's paper was delayed to allow road crews to better clear the streets and to assure that home delivery papers would not be buried beneath the snow. Home delivery subscribers of the Carroll County, Anne Arundel County and Howard County editions will receive a combined edition of The Sun today.We regret any inconvenience to our readers, and we plan to resume normal distribution and publishing schedules for Tuesday's paper, weather permitting.

The Maryland Board of Nursing has added a sixth case in its order suspending the license of an Ellicott City nurse midwife for her alleged actions during home births in recent years — including a case in which Johns Hopkins Hospital was ordered to pay one of the largest malpractice judgments in the state. The newest case cited by the board involved an infant whose delivery was aided by Evelyn Muhlhan and who later died. The baby turned blue shortly after birth and died about a month later at a hospital after being removed from an advanced breathing machine, according her mother, who complained to the board.
