Rapid population growth in Ellicott City in the last decade is not enough to offset declining beer, wine and spirit sales there, the County Council, sitting as the Liquor Board, was told last night.There has been a decline in the sale of all alcoholic beverages since 1980, said Walter Dulaney, general manager of Pine Orchard Liquors in the 10200 block of Baltimore National Pike. Mr. Dulaney was arguing against granting a liquor license to essentially the same group that was denied a license 18 months ago to open Your Wine Shoppe Inc. in the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center.

Donald Edwin Barton Sr. opened his Northeast Baltimore liquor store three weeks ago with a warning from a friend, Monte Brown: "I told him he had to be careful. The previous owner wore a bulletproof vest."But Mr. Barton apparently thought the .25-caliber handgun he kept behind the counter at Northway Liquors offered enough protection from the armed robbers that area merchants say are all too common.It wasn't. The 49-year-old Glenmore Avenue resident was fatally shot Thursday night when he exchanged gunfire with a man who robbed his store.

LIQUOR STORE owner Sung Kim shot and killed a robber Monday. The assailant will never rob again. But Mr. Kim has not freed himself of being robbed again. He also killed a bandit less than two years ago. People in the neighborhood know that. They know he packs a weapon. But fear of death doesn't always stop those desperate enough to rob, especially if it's to buy drugs.By arming himself, Mr. Kim increased the likelihood of violence when a robbery occurred. This time, he got the upper hand.

For the second time, a federal judge has rejected a Baltimore County liquor store's antitrust challenge to the Prohibition-era laws governing distribution of alcoholic beverages in Maryland. Beltway Fine Wine & Spirits in Towson, one of the state's largest package stores, argued that state efforts to promote temperance unfairly discouraged competition, but U.S. District Judge Frederic N. Smalkin ruled last week that Maryland's controls on liquor pricing and distribution are lawful. "The state's interest in protecting the health, safety and morals of its citizens, in this case, outweighs the federal interest in promoting economic competition in the alcoholic beverage industry," Smalkin said in his decision.

Despite repeated complaints about a North Avenue liquor store, a closure notice by Baltimore's liquor board and a weekend homicide at the establishment, Linden Bar and Liquors remained open for business yesterday. That's infuriating, especially after the fatal shooting there Saturday night, which underscored area residents' concerns about safety and the city liquor board's inability to make stick its decision to shutter the place. Citizens and the police strongly opposed a renewal of Linden's liquor license in April and the liquor board agreed.
