A controversial part of Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill aimed at curbing sprawl in Maryland was gutted on the Senate floor Friday night, with conservative Democrats and Republicans joining forces to keep development decisions in local hands. The legislation would have given the state broad authority to determine which pieces of land could have new houses and buildings -- and which parcels could not. But an amendment offered by Sen. Thomas "Mac" Middleton was adopted 32 to 13 and changed the bill so the counties retained the final say on where subdivisions can be built.

State Senate candidate Bill Ferguson represents all that Baltimore could be and Sen. George W. Della Jr. all that it is. Senator Della is not "old school" he is "one room school house. " Favors owed and favors given over the course of Mr. Della's career may reelect him, but it will be a great opportunity lost for Baltimore. I hope Mr. Ferguson can pull this out. Go Bill!

Dodging raindrops Thursday night, the incumbent senator sped from door to door in a South Baltimore neighborhood. "I'm George Della," he said at one door. "Keep me in mind on election day. " Then he was off to the next. A few miles south in Westport his young upstart of an opponent, Bill Ferguson, was leading a group of supporters in the same activity. "We've had the same senator for 27 years," he said. "I don't think he's pushing hard enough. " In a city where most incumbents face little or no opposition at the polls, the contest in Baltimore's 46th district is shaping up to be the most dynamic legislative race.

It's rare for an election to so clearly capture the changing nature of a community the way the race for Baltimore's 46th state Senate district does. The traditional blue collar communities around Baltimore's waterfront have, for years, been transforming into an enclave of young professionals, and each constituency has a representative in Tuesday's Democratic primary. On one side is the incumbent, Sen. George W. Della Jr., as old Baltimore as it gets. He has been in the Senate since the year his opponent was born, served on the City Council before that, and inherited his political machine from his father.

As a senior citizen, I'm offended The Sun bases political endorsements on age and social media skills ("For Bill Ferguson," Sept. 9). In light of today's average life-expectancy, Sen. George Della's 67 years is no reason to put him out to pasture. He has served the community well and will continue to do so. Several years ago I had an issue involving the Maryland National Guard and was impressed by Senator Della's concern and input. Bill Ferguson is a terrific guy, no doubt, but just because he's 27 and Twitter savvy doesn't mean he's ready for the Maryland State Senate.

The Young Elected Officials Network had its national conference in Washington last week, and Del. Keiffer Mitchell, in D.C. on other business, decided to stop by. "I went to try to register at the table and they said the age limit is 35 years old," said Mitchell, who turns 44 in September. "I tried to explain to the lady, 'Hey, I’ve been going to the gym on a daily basis.'" They did let Mitchell in, as sort of an elderly observer. While there, he ran into Sen. Bill Ferguson and City Councilman Bill Cole.

You wrote of Sen. George W. Della of the 46th District: "By and large, he votes the way people in his district would want, he is independent of the leadership in Annapolis, he is accessible to his constituents and he has experience in the ways of the Senate. " ("For Bill Ferguson," Sept. 9) You then add that it would take Senator Della's opponent "a long time to match" his proven record but that the young man has "potential. " Query: Would The Sun drop H.L. Mencken for an upstart just out of journalism school?
