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.

More than three years after its closing, the Valley Inn is back in business. Now owned by Ted Bauer, the owner and operator of the Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley, the landmark on Falls Road just north of the beltway had its newly remodeled pub open for business last weekend. The pub is the first space to open under the Valley Inn's new ownership, but there's more to come, including a separate raw bar area and a full-scale dining room. For now, the pub appears to be operating on a part-time basis.

The Oregon Grille, after 16 years, has achieved institutional status. For residents of northern Baltimore County, especially those reluctant to drive into the city, the Oregon Grille is a retreat from the crowds and their flashy manners. Gentlemen are still asked to wear jackets in the dining room — not just on weekends, but weeknights, too. We had a pleasantly paced and relaxing dinner in the main dining room, which is decorated extensively with equestrian kitsch and framed scenes of the hunt.

Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. said Monday it finalized its planned purchase of 18 television stations owned by Barrington Broadcasting Group for $370 million. Those stations, plus another six Barrington stations that Sinclair will operate or service, are located in 15 markets, including Syracuse, N.Y., Colorado Springs, Colo., Flint and Traverse City, Mich., and Myrtle Beach, S.C. Sinclair funded the purchase through cash on hand. Because of a conflict under Federal Communication Commission ownership rules, Sinclair sold its FOX stations in Syracuse, N.Y., and Peoria, Ill. The company also assigned a local marketing agreement and purchase option on a MNT affiliate in Syracuse to Bristlecone Broadcasting, while selling off license assets of five other stations.
