Free Basting Oil

With only thirteen days to go before the Columbia Wegmans opens, I recently learned that, on April 11th, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals upheld the HoCo Circuit Court’s dismissal of the Kendall/Rousseau lawsuit that attempted to keep the popular grocer out of Columbia.

You may recall that Phillip Rousseau is the guy who complained that the new store would threaten his health by the increasing the diesel fumes on Snowden River Parkway. Phil’s house backs up to Snowden River Parkway.

Paul Kendall, Phillip Rousseau, Carvel Mays and Frank Martin originally filed suit to not only stop Wegmans but also to overturn every HoCo zoning decision for the past fifteen years. They even sought a Fed takeover of the HoCo land use process. They lost and appealed every court battle. Those appeals have now apparently been exhausted, just like everyone else concerned with this case.

Thanks to To2C netizen, Lotsabogeys, for staying on top of these convoluted legal proceedings over the years and providing me with updates. 

And speaking of Wegmans…

My new Wegmans Shoppers Club card arrived in the mail today, along with a coupon for a free 8 oz bottle of Wegmans Basting Oil. After reading this description of the product by Kurt Kulzer in the Wegmans blog I’m anxious to try it out.

“Basting Oil was released in August 2003. It had a sleek looking bottle and an elegant label. Soon, you were roasting Brussels sprouts or cauliflower and telling us how your kids were eating vegetables without argument.”

They also included a coupon for a free reusable shopping bag. We can always use another one of those.

Two weeks ago, Wegmans showed HoCo some love by donating eight tons of food to the HoCo Food Bank. Today they spread a little of that love to my doorstep.

Only thirteen days to go.
