Baltimore's liquor board on Thursday revoked the license of a massive Southeast Baltimore dance club, citing incidents in which a patron was shot on the dance floor and the club's owner released pepper spray into a large crowd while riding on a golf cart.

A Howard County hearing board has decided to revoke the license of an Elkridge liquor store cited three times by police for selling alcohol to minors. In its order to revoke the license of Meadowridge Wine and Spirits in the 6500 block Huntshire Drive, which was released yesterday, the county's Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board found "a pattern of violations over several years that demonstrate a failure to fill the responsibilities required of a licensee." At the hearing Oct. 12, the board heard a statement of facts agreed to by both sides revealing that no one legally responsible for the store lives in Howard County, as required by law.

After five years of below-average performance, Baltimore County's only charter school will lose its license to operate in July, but will continue as a regular public school next year. The Baltimore County school board voted Tuesday night to pull the charter from Imagine Discovery Public Charter School, the Woodlawn-area school that families had fought for years to keep open. Imagine Discovery parents are generally satisfied with the transfer of leadership because they believe the school will remain open with the same principal and teachers, said Charles Sydnor, who is on the school's PTA leadership team.

Baltimore County auto insurance salesman Hal Katz is known for his offbeat television commercials, such as the one with the rapper singing, "Hey, Hal, you're the best!"

The Maryland Insurance Administration has been investigating Katz and his companies in the past several months over the alleged mishandling of premiums and use of unlicensed agents. Last week, Baltimore City Circuit Court placed two of his companies — Interstate Auto Insurance Co. and Katz's Insurance Agency — into receivership.

Thanks to Charles Campbell for his very enlightening commentary about the huge international costs resulting from our national ethanol mandates in gasoline, resulting in dire increases in food costs worldwide ("U.S. must abandon corn-based ethanol," Aug. 29). Looking closer to home, in addition to grocery costs, ask any waterman or boater on the Chesapeake Bay or elsewhere and you'll hear of the extremely common mechanical breakdown of marine engines due to the fact that ethanol absorbs water which then corrodes the fuel system from the inside.

A Baltimore County judge denied Mark Midei's appeal for reinstatement of his medical license, ruling that there was "substantial evidence" for the Maryland Board of Physicians to revoke it last year after finding that the Towson cardiologist falsified patient records to justify the placement of unnecessary coronary stents. The decision ends an ordeal that began more than three years ago, when an anonymous letter was sent to the state board, claiming Midei, a well-regarded physician who earned a seven-figure salary at St. Joseph Medical Center, was improperly treating patients.

Maryland health officials have revoked 157 nursing assistants' certificates after learning that a state employee awarded the medical documents to people who didn't apply or didn't meet minimum standards. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's inspector general concluded in 2009 that an employee fraudulently issued 19 nursing certificates, but the new findings show more than eight times as many faulty certificates had been issued. The employee has been fired. A new audit also found that 53 percent of Maryland's 1,367 licensed assisted-living facilities and 76 percent of the state's 201 centers for the disabled were not inspected during fiscal year 2010.
