This is in response to the letter writer from Catonsville who wrote that he was "appalled" by Home Depot's decision to no longer allow a hot dog stand in front of its stores ("Home Depot hammers the little guy, again," May 20). The main thing that the writer fails to remember is that Home Depot owns the property and has the right to act like any other landlord and exercise their right to renew or cancel a lease as they see fit. Angelo Micklos was given proper notice to vacate the property and it is not up to the writer to question business practices for Home Depot.

Winter may appear to have no end in sight, but Home Depot is thinking spring. It's the biggest season of the year for the home improvement retailer, which said Wednesday it's hiring 750 temporary workers in the Baltimore area. That's about 45 employees for each of the area's 16 stores. The chain says the positions are seasonal, workers for the garden department and parking lots, "but we try to keep as many people on board as possible," said Catherine Woodling, a spokeswoman.

In regard to your article about the hot dog stands at Home Depot ("Home Depot tells owners of hot dog stands to relocate," May 17), I am appalled that the Big Box Bully would crush a small business owner in this environment. To throw out a long-time vendor that brings a nice added touch to this behemoth is unfathomable to me and should anger all small business owners especially the small businesses that use Home Depot for their own livelihood. Kicking a 17-employee small business out to put more lawn mowers and grills in front during the "busy season" is odd since the store has been in partnership with Angelo Micklos for 21 years.

NEW YORK - Home Depot Inc., the largest U.S. home-improvement retailer, said Tuesday it is laying off 1,000 staffers as it cuts three pilot programs and cuts some support positions. An internal memo sent to staffers by CEO Frank Blake said about 900 of the cuts stem from consolidating some support functions in its human resources, finance and other divisions. The rest come from the company closing a small-format pilot store in Wilson, N.C.; a temporary hurricane recovery outlet in Waveland, Miss.

When a man reaches a certain age, he begins reflecting on a lot of things. Lately what I've been reflecting on is: How much of my life have I wasted wandering around these home-improvement superstores, trying to find stuff? The other day, for instance, I went to Home Depot looking for two things: a handle for a storm door and gardening gloves. The whole process took, I don't know, three days. Let's start with the door handle. Want to know how many different door handles Home Depot sells?

Succulents aren't just for the desert anymore. These heat and humidity lovers, with their dramatic leaf shapes and their striking colors, are the answer to the Mid-Atlantic summer and perfect for containers, pots and window boxes, even vertical gardens. And they have one more advantage. "I love the idea of having plants but not actually having to take care of them," said Catonsville DIY blogger Jocie Hagan, who offered a workshop on planting succulent dish gardens recently at Home Depot in Ellicott City.

The rhythmic thud of the drum filled the air of Baltimore's Waverly community, alerting residents that something special was taking place in the neighborhood. The joyous sound of children's laughter and eventual singing reinforced the sense of community organizers envisioned when they planned Sunday's parade and subsequent concert in a 25-foot-by-25-foot translucent bubble. "It's whimsical. When people see it, they want to go in and enjoy it," said Seattle-based conceptual artist Nola Elsewhere, who dreamed up the concept of the bubble that housed the singing and music.

A 53-year-old foreign journalist who left his Montgomery County home after what a family friend said was a dispute with his wife early Saturday has been reported missing. Joachim Rogge, who had lived in Bethesda for 14 years while working as a correspondent for a chain of German newspapers, left the house "in a huff," said Kim Barrington, who spoke Thursday night on behalf of Rogge's French-born wife, Valerie. The Rogges have two children, ages 6 and 8. Barrington said Valerie Rogge has been in touch with Montgomery County police since learning that her husband's credit card was used to make an ATM withdrawal of $40 at a bank in Edgewood about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

A former Home Depot employee pleaded guilty yesterday to federal arson charges in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, admitting he set fires at company stores in Edgewood and Bel Air last summer, authorities said. The defendant, Derek W. Hall, 33, of Elkton, was fired from Home Depot last March, according to a statement presented in court. He was seen on security cameras in the two locations just before the fires, which forced store evacuations. A can of acetone with Hall's fingerprints was recovered from the scene of another Home Depot fire in Delaware, where he also has pleaded guilty to an arson charge, authorities said.

John Teddy Osagie was six months behind in his $310,000 mortgage, had $25,000 in credit-card debt and his house-cleaning business was shrinking with the economy. Four days after a judge ordered Osagie to pay $59,000 to his wife, plus upkeep on her home, to finalize their divorce, Osagie's one-story home in Linthicum went up in flames. On Monday, Osagie, 50, entered an Alford plea to first-degree arson. He acknowledged that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him, but did not admit to setting the four separate fires on March 14, 2009, that left his house uninhabitable.
