Snake-breeding business ruled OK in neighborhood

TOWSON -- A county judge has ruled that neighbors of a Glen Arm snake-breeding business have no legal grounds to force it out of the agricultural zone where owner Peter Kahl built it in 1997.

Circuit Judge John G. Turnbull II said Tuesday the business is no different from other types of farming. Lawyers for neighbors opposed to the snake operation had argued that it should be moved to a business zone.

"This was a well-tried and hard-fought case -- three times," said Michael Moran, a lawyer for Kahl. J. Carroll Holzer, an attorney for Kahl's neighbors, said he would appeal the decision to the Court of Special Appeals.

Woman near park has right to keep neighbors off land

OELLA -- A county Circuit Court judge has ruled that an Oella woman does not have to allow her neighbors to cross her land to enter Patapsco State Park.

Judge J. William Hinkel said last week that Barbara Goldsmith Jensen of the 700 block of Race Road purchased not only the lot but also the easement across the property when she bought her home in 1997. The decision means Oella residents no longer will have direct access to the park.

Many residents said they purchased their homes there because of their the proximity to the park. The president of the Oella Homeowners Association said yesterday the group has not decided whether to appeal the ruling.
