The Baltimore Sun's editorial "Tie-breaker" (Dec. 15) rightly notes the stalemate between the Roland Park community and the Baltimore Country Club on the Keswick Multi-Care Center's plan to build an assisted-living facility on land that now belongs to the country club. This stalemate is an opportunity for the city to take a leadership role in moving the project out of Roland Park and into another area in the city that is in need of redevelopment. There is no need to destroy green space to build such a center when there are so many sites throughout the city, including near Roland Park, that are in need of redevelopment.

Kathy Fitzpatrick has no handicap when it comes to the history of golf in the Baltimore area.This historian is blessed with patience and tenacity. For nearly three years, she's read reel after reel of newspaper microfilm. She's visited the Library of Congress and the headquarters of the U.S. Golf Association in Far Hills, N.J."I don't know what people must think of me, but once I start a project, I just don't like to give up," she says. "The golf research is far easier than playing golf. I really have to work at the game . . . I shoot in the 90s. Not all the time, you understand."
