Owings Mills-based The Great Cookie is hoping to sell cookies and cookie cakes nationally through a newly launched, redesigned website that expands the assortment and ability to customize cakes. The company, founded in Ocean City in 1979, expects online shopping to play a big role in its national growth. It's also considering expanding locally beyond the seven stores it operates mostly in Baltimore-area malls. Online customers can choose from more than 30 predesigned cookie cakes or customize a cake with a personalized message.

The debate over the minimum wage, both in Maryland and nationally, and related concerns over income inequality have provoked some unpleasant and ongoing side effects. The recent trend of billionaires flaunting their perceived superiority over the less-economically-well-endowed while simultaneously decrying "class warfare" and even invoking a comparison to Nazi persecution being among the worst. Yet the very parameters of the conversation seem flawed. Many people assume, for instance, that raising the standard of living for the working class necessarily takes away from those on the highest rung of the ladder.

Happenstance brought Suzy Ganz from Wall Street to a Baltimore County manufacturer. A deep interest in the work kept her there. Before she was CEO and chairman of Lion Brothers Co., an Owings Mills maker of brand logos, uniform insignia, Girl Scout badges and similar products, Ganz was an international equities trader and bond specialist. Her only connection to Lion was that her father had acquired it with a group of investors. Then he died unexpectedly. Her mother asked her to take a look at the business so they could figure out what to do. What started as a 90-day commitment at age 28 grew into a career that's already lasted more than a quarter-century.

The state comptroller's office says Baltimore-based Constellation Energy owes more than $2.5 million in back taxes, interest and penalties. The comptroller's office filed a lien in December for money it says the energy company owes for the 2006 and 2008 tax years. Most of the amount is interest - the taxes claimed come to just under $440,000. "It hasn't been paid, and this is part of our normal process, to file a lien," said Christine Feldmann, a spokeswoman for the comptroller's office.

Columnist Dan Rodricks writes that Marylanders have an apology coming for the flawed rollout of Obamacare ( "Some Marylanders deserve apology for insurance stress," Jan. 16). Mr. Rodricks might start by with apologizing himself for his endless promotion of Obamacare over the last several years. Now that he has what he wanted he is trying to blame the law's problems on the Republicans, even though not one Republican in Congress voted for Obamacare. And don't give me that single-payer baloney.

Thursday's wrestling match was a good measuring stick for Winters Mill and host Owings Mills. For one, it was a step in the right direction. For another, maybe a little hiccup. The visiting Falcons (1-3) fell behind early but rallied to win 11 consecutive matches to defeat the No. 11 Eagles (3-2), 49-24. Both teams dropped matches to Leonardtown (14-1) before facing each other. "What you saw tonight were two historically strong teams in a rebuilding mode," said Winters Mill coach John Lowe, whose team won the Class 2A-1A state title last year.

Unexpected expenses and shortfalls - $3.8 million in police expenses, $4 million in unpaid tax credits, a $14.4 million gap from inactive speed cameras - left Baltimore officials scrambling in recent months to patch holes in the budget, the city's fiscal chief said Tuesday. Budget Director Andrew Kleine detailed the fixes in the $2.4 billion spending plan at a quarterly briefing before City Council members. He said he now expects a $4.5 million surplus by the end of the fiscal year in June.
