Gambling charges against a state lawmaker's brother and three others were set aside on an inactive docket Monday in Baltimore County District Court in Towson, meaning the court made no finding of guilt or innocence in the case alleging that a Dundalk tavern made cash payouts on video game machines. Daniel J. Minnick, 86, brother of state Del. Joseph "Sonny" Minnick, who was also a part-owner of Minnick's on Sollers Point Road, agreed as a condition of setting aside the charges to forfeit five video game machines and half the cash confiscated in a police raid on June 29. Police alleged that the bar/restaurant was making payouts to customers playing the machines.

The Democratic delegate's older brother, Daniel Minnick, 86, faces six charges in a case scheduled for trial Monday in Baltimore County District Court.

Known for its signature dish of sour beef and dumplings, the Dundalk restaurant was a traditional gathering spot for local politicians to gab, argue and make deals as they ate. In a 1999 Sun article, she described the restaurant, as "one of the last ma and pa restaurant operations left" in the Dundalk area.

The recent articles concerning Sheila Dixon ("Dixon at work behind the scenes," July 13) and Del. Joseph J. "Sonny" Minnick ("4 charged in tavern gambling raid," July 15 ) show how prosecutors deal with politicians accused of crimes. Ms. Dixon was allowed to plead guilty to a lesser crime after a jury found her guilty, solely to protect her pension and to allow her to continue to run for elected office in the future. Mr. Minnick co-owns the bar where authorities say illegal gambling was held at and where the bartender is reported to have claimed that Mr. Minnick was involved.

A bill that would have created an "outdoor" exemption for Baltimore County bars and restaurants to the state ban on smoking in public places died in a House committee yesterday, effectively ending an effort that some health advocates feared could unravel statewide support for the newly imposed law. The bill, sponsored by Del. Joseph J. "Sonny" Minnick, co-owner of a Dundalk bar, failed on an 8-to-10 vote in the House Economic Matters Committee. Four members were absent. The measure would have allowed smoking on enclosed decks and patios, and in tents or other outdoor structures with removable walls.

Del. Joseph J. "Sonny" Minnick co-owns a tavern in Dundalk, and he said he has lost business since the state banned smoking in bars and restaurants. Now, at the request of fellow tavern owners, he is backing a bill that would create an "outdoor" exemption for Baltimore County bars and restaurants. This week, the proposal won the support of a state Senate committee, alarming health advocates. The measure would allow smoking on enclosed decks and patios, in tents or in other outdoor structures of bars and restaurants, and it would apply only to Baltimore County.

"This is a very popular part of the state that we've just kind of left alone," said Del. Frank S.
