Kroger Co.'s planned acquisition of Harris Teeter Supermarkets Inc. will allow it to capitalize on Harris Teeter's growing presence in the Baltimore-Washington market, but consumers will see few, if any, changes in existing stores. Kroger, the biggest U.S. supermarket operator, said Tuesday it would buy the Charlotte, N.C.,-based regional chain in a $2.5 billion deal that will raise its store count in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. Regional supermarkets like Harris Teeter are struggling to maintain market share against mass merchandisers such as Costco and Walmart, leading to consolidation in the industry.

CINCINNATI - Kroger Co., the largest U.S. supermarket company, said yesterday that it will restate earnings for the past three years because of accounting irregularities at a chain the company acquired in 1999. Kroger audited Ralphs Grocery after it learned in September of accounting entries made to smooth out swings in earnings. The restatement will have the net effect of reducing earnings by 2 cents a share over three years, the company said. The executives who oversaw these practices are no longer with the company, said spokesman Gary Rhodes.

Dr. William Kroger, 89, a pioneer and longtime champion of the medical uses of hypnosis, died Monday in Los Angeles. He specialized in obstetrics, gynecology and endocrinology until he became intrigued by the psychosomatic causes of many illnesses he encountered. His interest led him to become a psychiatrist and to use hypnosis to deal with the psychological components of many disorders, particularly the pain of childbirth.At a time when hypnosis was regarded as little more than a potentially dangerous parlor trick, his writings and demonstrations gradually won the confidence of the medical establishment.
