Now that MGM Resorts International won the state license to build a casino in Prince George's County, officials say they have no doubt it will become a world-class destination — and a revenue-generating powerhouse for the state. "I believe this will be the most successful commercial resort outside of Las Vegas," said Jim Murren, MGM's chairman and CEO, shortly after a state commission awarded his company the license on Friday. "I've never seen a site like this. " Analysts agree that the MGM National Harbor casino has major promise — projections are that it could generate hundreds of millions a year in tax revenue — but also that it will compete with Maryland Live at Arundel Mills and the rising Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore.

The Turf Valley golf club and resort in Ellicott City won approval this week for extended hours for alcohol sales. The resort will have a country club license once the legal papers are signed, said Howard County liquor board administrator Denise King, which allows establishments to begin serving at 6 a.m. Its existing golf club liquor license has more limited hours for serving alcohol. The change comes as the Howard County legislative delegation is considering proposing a bill in the General Assembly to extend sale hours for alcohol under a golf course liquor license to hours nearly identical to those under the country club license.

The Baltimore City Board of Liquor License Commissioners voided yesterday a bar license that had been inactive for about three years - a clear violation of state law that prohibits licenses from going unused for more than 180 days, or 360 with a hardship extension. Board Chairman Mark S. Fosler said the board voided James C. Quigley's liquor license as part of a crackdown on dozens of dormant licenses and the brokers who hold onto them for future sale. City liquor licenses fetch between $50,000 to $100,000.

An Ellicott City restaurant owner has persuaded a doubtful Howard County liquor board to grant him a liquor license, despite the same kind of questions about his credibility that led a different board to deny a license for an Oakland Mills eating place. The two cases bear some striking similarities, but some differences, too. Both applicants were accused of including false answers on their license applications - answers that ignored past violations - and both blamed their troubles on business consultants and associates.

Liquor board will conduct a fair hearing The Sun's article "Late-night unruliness near club undermines goals for arts district" (Aug. 3) indicated that community residents and business owners have for years complained about Club Choices. As Club Choices has no liquor license, the Maryland Board of Liquor License Commissioners' only legally mandated responsibilities in this matter concern adult entertainment -- about which we have received no complaints. A thorough check of our records also indicates that we have received no complaints concerning Trip's Place, over which we do have regulatory control at least since 1998.

Carroll County charges too little, takes too long and spends too much money to handle zoning appeals and liquor license issues, according to a county audit completed recently.The audit recommends the elimination of the Office of Administrative Hearings as the principal way to cure "inefficient processes and procedures."By slashing the office -- with an annual budget of $89,000 -- and turning its unctions over to the county attorney's office, Carroll could save more than $50,000 a year, the audit said.

The old adage that cats have nine lives apparently includes cat legislation.A proposal to require licensing of cats keeps returning -- the latest version introduced in Baltimore's City Council last night, to require that owners purchase a $20 license for each of their cats.Previous cat licensing bills in the city have failed, but neighboring counties have passed similar legislation, causing furor among feline fanciers who say the licensing process and fee create a hassle for responsible pet owners.
