Daylight Saving Time Starts Sunday — A reminder to turn your clocks forward one hour early Sunday morning.

Dave & Busters Latest To Challenge White Flint Mall Redevelopment — A second high profile tenant sued White Flint Mall last year over its redevelopment plans. Dave & Busters, the restaurant, bar and arcade space, sued the mall last November claiming its redevelopment plans violated the lease. Mall owner Lerner Enterprises fired back by claiming Dave & Busters technically was in violation of the lease since 2006, when it opened a location at Arundel Mills Mall in Hanover. That apparently is too close to the White Flint location, though Lerner allowed Dave & Busters continue to operate. It appears another longtime tenant at the old mall will be on the way out after it’s redeveloped into a mixed-use town center. Lord & Taylor filed a similar suit against the mall last summer.

County Executive Candidates Reject Rent Stabilization — At a campaign forum held Wednesday night by the Montgomery County Renters Alliance (a advertiser) all four county executive candidates said they do not support the idea of rent stabilization. They did talk about the need for more housing supply to lead to affordable housing rates. On the County Council side, 19 candidates showed up and 18 spoke. [Renters Alliance]

Montgomery County A Model For Trans Fat Ban? — Montgomery County was the first county in the country to ban trans fat in a bill introduced by former Councilmember Duchy Trachtenberg, who’s running against incumbent Roger Berliner for the District 1 seat. [Washingtonian]
