State road crews have removed 200 feet of metal guardrails along Butler Road in Baltimore County's Western Run Valley, but residents accustomed to the open fields and unmarred vistas say it's not enough.Though state officials thought they had satisfied residents' concerns, neighbors say they want the state to remove most of the 2,000 feet of guardrail that was put up last week in nine sections along a mile stretch of the bucolic country road."It's unsightly in a rural district," said Katharine Jenkins, who has lived in the valley 40 years and drives a pony cart across Butler Road to visit her sister.

The owners of Barrett's Grill at the Hunt Valley Towne Centre will open a restaurant in the Glyndon location that was the site of Mia Carolina until earlier this year. The new restaurant will be called Glyndon Grill , according to Michael Sipes, who co-owns both Barrett's Grill and the new restaurant with John Barrett. Glyndon Grill will operate with a different menu and chef than Barrett's but will also focus on in-house, made-from-scratch preparations, said Sipes, who added that Glyndon Grill will also likely be more casual than Barrett's Grill, which he and Barrett have owned since 2011.

So do a couple of other stores across Falls Road. Then you have a flower and gift shop, a general store, liquor store, post office, a custom kitchens designing firm, landscaping business, artists' cooperative, duck decoy shop, a mail-order saddlery business and a quarry.

Widows and parents of Marylanders who were killed on the state's roads pleaded with lawmakers in Annapolis on Wednesday to give the victims of future traffic crashes a measure of justice they believe was denied their family members under the state's difficult standard for holding drivers criminally accountable for fatalities. In an emotionally charged hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, families of crash victims urged passage of a bill that would create a misdemeanor offense known as "manslaughter by vehicle or vessel — criminal negligence" with a potential penalty of three years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Each April, I look forward to the Saturday when the Grand National Steeplechase jockeys ride across a swath of unspoiled Baltimore County valley. From a vantage point atop a hill off Butler Road, just off Falls Road, I look out across the Western Run Valley and think how fortunate we are to have this setting — and the chance to visit it on a single spring afternoon. That's enough; too much traffic is not what this location needs. The countryside race, held Saturday, is over private estates and farms.
