There will be no more wedding receptions, birthday dinners or high school reunions at Snyder's Willow Grove. For 77 years, the Linthicum Heights restaurant and banquet hall hosted countless family and community celebrations and special dinners. But storms at the end of April forced the Patapsco River over its banks, depositing a foot of water and mud in the Snyder's dining rooms. For Mother's Day, co-owner Vernon Snyder was preparing to serve 1,200 customers, a healthy crowd on one of the restaurant's busiest days of the year.

As of Wednesday, just two days before a wedding and a high school prom, just three days before a 400-person Greek wedding, dozens of tradesmen scrambled to finish the first new Martin's Inc. banquet hall in two decades. Workers installed gold railings on a sweeping staircase. Paperhangers smoothed wallpaper into place in the grand lobby. Faux painters re-created one of the ballroom's ornate walls onto a huge room divider, brushing on intricate veins of marble and mirrored panels. In the ballroom of the new Valley Mansion by Martin's in Cockeysville, Martin Resnick, founder of the 43-year-old catering business, was surrounded by stacks of plastic-covered chairs and leafy plants yet to be arranged.

Editor: Rev. Donte' L. Hickman's recent criticisms of your editorial cartoon were totally unfounded. No one here is hiding behind children or exploiting them for a more "pervasive" agenda. To come into this community and accuse us of racism and exploiting children is not how you win friends and influence people. These kids started this Save Our Pool campaign on their own. They wanted their pool opened so they decided to contact our local Council Representative and ask him to help the County find a way to purchase the property or open the pool.

You gaze at the 19th-century homes, shops, churches and buildings, and all of a sudden you feel time has stood still in Savage. Life moves at a slower pace in the community, though it is just a few hundred yards from the traffic and modern commercial buildings on U.S. 1 in Howard County. The centerpiece is the Savage Mill, a collection of red-brick buildings that housed a thriving textile mill from 1822 through 1947. The mill was built by Amos Williams and his brothers with money lent to them by their friend John Savage, after whom they named the business.

Thomas E. Creutzer of Perry Hall was attending a wedding reception at a Westminster banquet hall about a year ago when he found that he was unable to maneuver his wheelchair through the restroom doorway. Upon alerting the staff of the problem, he said, they offered to carry him to the bathroom, a remedy he dismissed as unsafe and humiliating.The final solution: He was directed to the coat check area where, behind a curtain, he urinated into a bottle.Creutzer has filed suit against the hall -- Martin's Westminster -- accusing it of failing to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. His suit is one of four announced yesterday in a coordinated effort to spotlight alleged violations of the 1990 act."

Gov. Martin O'Malley helped Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton raise nearly a half-million dollars for her presidential bid last night at a Baltimore County fundraiser that attracted some of the region's most notable Democratic contributors. The event was held on a day that the New York senator picked up her latest high-profile Maryland endorsement. Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, a Baltimore County Democrat, announced yesterday that he is backing Clinton's bid. Clinton, in turn, praised Ruppersberger, along with O'Malley and Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, who also attended the dinner, before telling the crowd of 300 that the country needs a leader "that sets goals for America again."

Its critics cheered when the lights went out at the Tunnel, a downtown nightclub that police said has been a magnet for violence. But the Eutaw Street club probably won't stay dark for long. The Tunnel, closed by the city last month for zoning violations, could reopen soon, said city officials and the club's lawyer. Club owner Jay A. Benjamin has submitted paperwork to correct its zoning status and could be back in business within days if the club passes new building inspections, officials said.

The Tunnel, a troubled downtown Baltimore nightclub long criticized by police for attracting violence, has been forced to shut its doors after city inspectors determined it was violating zoning regulations, officials said yesterday. Acting on complaints from the mayor's office and City Council members, zoning officials said they inspected the club - in the 300 block of N. Eutaw St. - on June 28 and found it was violating its "banquet hall" zoning designation. The violations were that the Tunnel was charging admission and operating as a nightclub, said Michael Savino, city superintendent for zoning enforcement.

The e-mail came from a dedicated foodie who used to work at the Sun, raving about a banquet for 30 he had had at the Golden Gate Noodle House in Towson: "True," he wrote, "it was arranged by a Chinese-American friend of a friend, but most of the dishes, I'm told, are available either on the menu or by advance order." I had never been to the Golden Gate, so I didn't understand why he had said it was an unlikely place for a Chinese banquet. I saw when I got there. It's a tiny, cluttered mom-and-pop place on Allegheny Avenue with a few booths and tables decked out in red plastic cloths.
