The traveling facility for innovators to pitch ideas makes a stop at UMBC's incubator complex.
What do you do if you're an entrepreneur with an idea that might set the world on fire—and no way to reach partners, venture capitalists or potential customers? Startup Maryland is a statewide initiative that helps entrepreneurs and innovators bring their ideas to fruition with the Pitch Across Maryland bus, a vehicle equipped with a studio to help business people make video "pitches." The Pitch Across Maryland bus made a stop at bwtech@UMBC, the incubator complex adjacent to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on Sept. 19. "We want to put the spotlight on entrepreneurs, to give them a bigger megaphone," said Startup Maryland co-chair Mike Binko. "You never know who's out there—a partner or investor who can help you get to the …

The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is recommending that people who shop at Trader Joe's avoid its peanut butter products.
People who shop at Trader Joe's are being warned to avoid its peanut butter due to an ongoing investigation into a multi-state outbreak of salmonella, according to the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The department is asking that people not consume Trader Joe’s brand Valencia Creamy Salted Peanut Butter made with sea salt, but it warned that other peanut butter products could also be contaminated, according to a press release.

The proposed liquor store in Wegmans has sparked the debate.
The proposed 10,000-square-foot liquor store inside the new Columbia Wegmans has reignited the debate on whether wine, beer and liquor should be sold in Maryland grocery and convenience stores. In an expansive article on Saturday, the Baltimore Sun examined how multiple grocery stores are trying to find ways around rules that generally ban chain grocery stores from selling wine, beer and liquor. (There are some exceptions, such as an Eastern Shore Giant location that has a license that has been grandfathered.) Adam Borden, the president of Marylanders for Better Beer & Wine Laws, said the bans are antiquated. “Our culture has evolved,” said Borden. “It used to be one where temperance and orderly tax collections were our most paramount …

Jay Patel and his throwback country store have changed Oella from a rough mill town into a close-knit community.
As cars pass through the four-way stop at Jay's Country Corner Store in Oella, horns beep and hands peek out partially cracked windows, waving at the man standing on the store's stone steps. Jay Patel must wave back each time. He shouts a hello and calls the vehicles' occupants by name. Patel has been standing on the store's porch no more than five minutes. He has waved at least that many times. "See, this is the problem out here," Patel says. But the diminutive 61-year-old from India, owner of the country store since 1983, is smiling through his thick white goatee. For Patel, there's no problem. He loves the Village of Oella and the people in those vehicles who can't resist saying hello. He should. The old mill town that straddles the …
