I was disappointed by The Sun's recent editorial ("Maryland's ATM?", Dec. 15) criticizing Montgomery County's interest in being treated equitably by state government. I agree that the wealthy should pay their fair share in taxes, regardless of whether they live in Potomac or Pikesville. But The Sun and others around the state need to recognize the Montgomery County of fact, and not myth. The reality is that, despite your misconception, the borders of our county extend far beyond the town of Potomac.

Mike Barillo has taught Denny McCarthy for as long as the 17-year-old from Burtonsville has played golf, watching McCarthy grow from a player who could beat kids his own age to one who could take on much older and more experienced competition. "Mentally, he's better than any kid I've ever seen," Barillo said Thursday from Argyle Country Club in Silver Spring, where he's the head pro and where McCarthy's family have been longtime members. "He's extremely competitive, but he's extremely calm, really disciplined, just a smart kid and a really smart golfer."

BURTONSVILLE -- Some swear by the perfectly fluffy cheesecake. Some say the draw is the bourbon chicken and the fried chicken wings. For others, it's the soft pretzels studded with chunks of salt, the creamy ice cream, the warm-from-the-oven dinner rolls, the honey-glazed doughnuts, the fresh vegetables or the case of glistening meats - massive stuffed pork chops, rings of turkey sausage, thick slices of smoked bacon. The hours are limited, the lines are sometimes long. The market, a collection of 14 shops run mostly by Amish vendors from Pennsylvania, does not have wide aisles or shopping carts or a thousand brands yelling out in neon colors.
