ALL IT TOOK the other day was a rumor -- in this case that Baltimore city was about to annex Lansdowne and Baltimore Highlands in Baltimore County -- to draw nearly 1,000 anxious countians to a community meeting.But it's harder than you might think for the city to gobble up parts of surrounding jurisdictions. That's because of a confusing ballot question 43 years ago that might well have gone the other way. It's a classic story of "what if."Question 5 was an amendment to the state Constitution Nov. 2, 1948.

Russia annexed Ukraine's southern Crimea region, despite the fact that a significant minority of the Crimean population are not ethnically Russian nor interested in joining the Russian Federation. Approximately 12 percent of the Crimean population - over 250,000 people - are ethnically "Tatar," a largely pro-Ukrainian, Sunni Muslim group. They have an embattled history with Russia. In 1944, Stalin exiled the Tatar population to Central Asia, and over half of the population died in the forced migration.

WHO DECIDES where and how a community should grow? In Maryland, counties, cities and towns all have master plans that designate how development should progress. The final say on any planning issue is usually in the hands of elected officials. So when voters aren't happy with decisions, they can eventually make changes at the ballot box. But along the border between towns and counties, the rules are not always so simple. The problem? Annexation - the transfer of territory from county to municipality - can put governments at odds and offer developers a way to sidestep growth controls.

Eighteen years ago, the eastern Carroll County town of Hampstead laid claim to a little piece of neighboring Baltimore County.By annexing the Roberts Field subdivision into the town's corporate limits, Hampstead's town fathers at that time grabbed about 232 acres of land that were located east of the Carroll line in Baltimore County.Baltimore County officials discovered this infringement on the county's sovereignty wholly by accident during the last session of the General Assembly. A sharp-eyed legislative analyst pointed out this anomaly to the county's lobbyist in Annapolis.

On a breezy September afternoon, Jerry Queen invited some friends over for a cookout on his front lawn, which overlooks a golf course that the city of Aberdeen wants to annex to help make way for more than 1,000 homes. After throwing some hot dogs on the grill, he pulled his pickup truck onto the grass and opened the hood - to maximize the sound of his horn when he blared it into a golfer's backswing. He decided against actually laying on the horn, on the advice of his attorney, but the golf course owner who is pushing the development likely got the message anyway: All the attendees at his party were wearing red shirts, the uniform of those opposed to the proposed annexation that has riven this Harford County community.

" The Annex team saw precisely that possibility. After a lot of clawing away at the remnants of the fast food emporium and a lot of waiting for city permits, the company's new home, dubbed -- what else?

Just as squirrels will keep attacking a squirrel-proof bird feeder until they demonstrate that no bird feeder is truly squirrel-proof, developers can be expected to keep seeking permission to build on property that they've been told they can't build on, if they think they can sell houses. So it is in Aberdeen, where a developer is again seeking to get piecemeal what other developers have thus far not been able to secure: permission to build houses in the area of Gilbert Road in the general area of the Wetlands Golf Course.

The Aberdeen planning commission has recommended single-family dwellings for a development that had originally sought to build more than 1,600 homes and condominiums. Several members of the city's Planning and Zoning commission said the petition to build the dwellings on 497 acres, which would be annexed by Aberdeen, was too dense. Christopher Michaels, management director of the project called Glengarry, said last week it was unclear what the property owners would pursue next. "I don't mean to sound ambiguous," he said.
