While Baltimore County officials were deciding whether Michael Williams was fit to continue teaching, he was assigned to a dusty, windowless room at a Pulaski Highway warehouse that held old textbooks, surplus computers and other materials. He, along with a dozen or so employees, sat at a long table reading detective novels and playing Trivial Pursuit. Sometimes they would fall asleep until supervisors, watching from a security camera, came in to wake them up. Williams, who had been accused of touching a girl on the cheek with a yardstick, was paid his full salary plus benefits for more than a year to show up at the warehouse when school was in session.

Twenty Giant Food workers will be laid off by the end of the month after a dry-goods warehouse in Jessup that supplies Giant stores closes, union locals representing workers said Monday. Warehouse operator Jessup Logistics LLC said in April that it was shutting down the warehouse and laying off about 250 people. The subsidiary of New Hampshire-based C&S Wholesale Grocers said it would save about $13.5 million a year by shifting the distribution work to a more technologically advanced facility in York, Pa. Giant, the region's largest grocery chain, outsourced the dry-goods operation to Jessup Logistics but still owns the center and runs a fresh-foods warehouse as well as the transportation and recycling divisions.

An Iowa-based real estate investment group has closed on a 352,850-square-foot Anne Arundel County warehouse occupied by Under Armour.

Monster trucks, wild animals and figure skaters draw millions to Feld Entertainment's live traveling shows each year. But some of that magic comes from an unlikely arena — an industrial complex in Jessup. Thousands of stuffed toys, flashing light sticks and elephant-shaped snowcone cups move annually through Howard County, restocking concession stands at Feld's numerous events. The company produces such popular shows as the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus, Disney On Ice and Monster Jam. "If you went to the circus and you didn't have the snowcones, cotton candy and popcorn, it wouldn't be the circus," said Feld spokesman Stephen Payne.

The two warehouses Amazon will open in Baltimore are not intended for its new grocery service, according to the developer of the facility. The online retailer is in the middle of expanding its shipping facilities in pursuit of cheaper, faster shipping. Last fall, it announced plans for a one-million-square-foot distribution center on Broening Avenue expected to bring about 1,000 jobs. The one-story building will be used as a fulfillment center, where employees pack orders, said Brian Strohl of Duke Realty, which is developing the former General Motors site in East Baltimore.

Coca-Cola has agreed to move its regional distribution center to a yet-to-be-built 291,000-square-foot warehouse in Hanover, Anne Arundel County officials said Friday. The facility will replace Coca-Cola's current 272,000-square-foot warehouse on Candlewood Road, also in Hanover. The center stores Coca-Cola products before delivery to businesses like restaurants and grocery stores across the region. To be developed by Preston Scheffenacker Properties, the new warehouse will be the first building in the Preston Gateway North development near the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Route 100. While only modestly larger, the new facility will be tailored to Coca-Cola's needs, making the operation more efficient, said Curtis L. Etherly Jr., spokesman for Coca-Cola Refreshments USA Inc. It will have 32 loading docks, as well as a larger truck yard and better security than the existing facility, Etherly said.
