The Valley Inn, a landmark property on Falls Road near the city-county border, is back in business. Now operated by Ted Bauer, owner of the of the popular Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley, the Valley Inn has been revealing itself, quietly, in stages.

In late February, a traditional, wood-paneled dining room began serving a full dinner menu. Bauer acquired the Valley Inn in 2011 from John "Bud" Hatfield Jr., whose family had operated it for nearly 90 years.

No one needs to convince the people running Green Bay Packaging's box-making plant in Hunt Valley that energy efficiency pays off. The last time they got assistance making nips and tucks to their process, they lowered electricity use 1 percent even as production jumped 20 percent. So when officials there got word of a new regional effort to help manufacturers lower energy costs, they rushed to sign up. "Of course, I was like, 'Count me in!'" said Tyson Aschliman, the plant's general manager.

It is unfortunate that Baltimore's major newspaper uses language suggestive of class warfare in its editorial about estate tax relief ( "The $431 million payoff," March 21). "Aging millionaire?" "Ultra-rich?" "Manor homes and penthouses?" The editorial's rhetoric and misleading statistics ignore the real issue: Middle-class Marylanders who have worked hard and saved throughout their lives now find themselves forced to restructure their estates, give away their assets (and hope they don't run out of money)

So, Rebecca Pearce was given five pay raises by the O'Malley administration while leading a failed health insurance exchange and spending millions of taxpayer dollars in the process ( "Former Md. health exchange director given five wage increases," Feb. 7). This should give Mr. O'Malley an additional incentive to run for president, since he is demonstrating the traits necessary for success in Washington: Hold no one accountable, reward incompetence and move the goal posts as necessary to redefine success.
