In the slice of North Laurel known as Whiskey Bottom, daily reminders of the wild world of bootlegging and revenuers live on in several street names: Moonshine Hollow, Bourbon Street, Sylvan Still and Whiskey Run. Then, once the potion has had its desired effect, you can always retreat to Mellow Court. This densely populated section of southeastern Howard County, where rolling fields once yielded tobacco harvests, is a grab bag of moderately priced apartments, townhouses, condominiums and single-family dwellings.

It was only last year that Howard County was on the verge of expanding Whiskey Bottom Road in North Laurel to accommodate increased traffic in the area. Now, county officials are heading in the other direction. After dropping the widening plans in the face of resident opposition, the county will mitigate the increased traffic with the opposite approach - building three or four islands in the middle of the road to slow drivers. Residents hailed the decision, saying traffic-calming measures are long overdue on the colorfully named street that has gone from being a dirt path used by farmers in the 19th century to the main access route for hundreds of homes built between Interstate 95 and U.S. 1. The road is of such inconsistent width, with homes so close to its edge, that some vehicles have struck cars parked in driveways.

At first, hardly anyone knew anything about Howard County Project #J4186. The plan -- to construct a left-turn lane at Whiskey Bottom Road at U.S. 1 in North Laurel -- lay buried among other road construction projects in the county's proposed 2001 capital budget. The proposal was a mere blip on the screen of what had been a year filled with high-profile battles over development and animal shelter hours. But that was before Brent Loveless found out about it. The North Laurel man sprang into action to save the street where his family has lived for more than half a century.
