Baltimore Police are planning a crackdown on drivers who use hand-held phones behind the wheel or fail to use seat belts. Days after a state law took effect tightening restrictions on cellphone use while driving, the department announced that it would set up a checkpoint Friday afternoon to look for violators. Another new law requires all adult passengers to wear seatbelts, and police said they'd be stepping up enforcement on that front as well. The checkpoint will be at Harford Road and The Alameda starting Friday at 5 p.m. "Efforts to enforce the law will be citywide, this checkpoint being the first large scale deployment of officers for that purpose," police said in a news release.

Here's a cure for the noise, the tumult and the cares of modern urban living: Just install a 60-foot mountain brook in your backyard, fill it with boulders and river rock, lotus and sweet flag, rain lily and bog bean, then switch on the waterfalls. Like magic yesterday, a little corner of green space at Cold Spring Lane and The Alameda came alive with gurgles and splashes that nearly drowned out the rattle and roar of the traffic a few feet away. The new, 16,000-gallon recirculating mountain stream is a gift from nearly a dozen contractors assembled in Baltimore this week for the National Pond Expo and Conference - a convention of "pondscapers" from across the country and abroad.
