ANNAPOLIS -- Members of Washington County's General Assembly delegation on Wednesday debated a bill to tighten the county's tip-jar regulations. The bill would add a state layer to a county prohibition against electronic tip jars that dispense randomly generated numbers. The machines aren't used in Washington County, which only allows pre-printed tickets, but are in Allegany County, where they have been likened to slot machines. The bill would set other benchmarks for Washington County's tip-jar gaming, further distinguishing it from forms played elsewhere.

New vendors at this year's Flower & Garden Show include Carnivorous Plant Nursery, from Deerwood, Md., and EcoDepot from Arbutus, Md. Carter McCamy said he got the idea for EcoDepot from an ecological restoration company he owns. Working on projects such as reforestation and stream restoration, McCamy noticed the products used in the field weren't changing much and created EcoDepot, which sells biodegradable versions. These include pots made with coir or coconut fiber that can be planted in the ground with the plants to reduce transplant shock; and hardwood stakes sewn together and used to protect saplings from deer.
