Elected officials in Baltimore County need to think carefully about plans for a new outlet mall at Nottingham Ridge in White Marsh ( "Developers of White Marsh outlet mall face opposition campaign from rivals," June 14). I have so many concerns about this project that it is hard to know where to begin. As a business owner and resident of the area, I fear that adding this new competition without doing an in-depth analysis of the retail market may cause stores to close and blight to come to the existing shopping centers.

Equating the stocking of menhaden in Maryland's waters to a set of traffic lights, Mike Waine sees the current plight somewhere closer to red than green. Waine, the fisheries management coordinator for the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, said Tuesday's two-hour hearing in Annapolis helped gauge the public's view on the overfishing of menhaden — and the future management of the species. Once considered a delicacy, menhaden are now more highly regarded as the main forager of unwanted algae as well as a source of food for the region's striped bass population.

All of the official proceedings of the Maryland General Assembly - committee hearings, voting sessions, floor debates and so on - are open to the public. Anyone who cares to can watch as their senators and delegates discuss and vote on any of the thousands of pieces of legislation that move through the General Assembly every year. Anyone, that is, who happens to be in Annapolis. The options for those who can't hang around the State House and the House and Senate office buildings have gotten better in recent years, but they're still far from ideal.
