Residents who live near the former Chestnut Ridge Country Club and golf course are once again fighting to preserve the sprawling Lutherville property, where a developer wants to build 85 luxury homes. Last year, the Baltimore County Council voted to drastically reduce the number of homes that could be built on the 230-acre site off Falls Road - the largest contiguous piece of land for miles around. But now a developer who had bought the land before that vote is asking the county to overturn the decision, arguing it is being unfairly denied the ability to build on its property.

The Baltimore County Planning Board is set to hear public comment Thursday on a former golf course and country club off of Falls Road in Lutherville that's been the subject of a zoning dispute. A public hearing about the former Chestnut Ridge Country Club is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the Jefferson Building, located at 105 Chesapeake Ave. in Towson. The County Council voted last year to limit development on the approximately 230-acre property, following the recommendation of Councilwoman Vicki Almond, a Reisterstown Democrat who represents the district where the site is located.

One day Patricia Ackman saw something she thought would make a fine lampshade, so she made a lamp to fit it.Then she made another. She got more ideas and made more. Then there were more ideas and more ideas. And before she knew it she was in trouble. "You can't have 12 lamps sitting in the living room," she says.When she had made 50 lamps she decided to have an open house, a invitation-only show and sale of her work. When 25 lamps went out the door that day, she knew she was on to something.

PUT ON YOUR crash helmet if you head along Falls Road at its intersection with Chestnut Avenue. Chances are, you'll really need it.This is perhaps the most perilous stretch of roadway in Baltimore, a sharp S-curve made more dangerous by the placement of historic brick mills at the road's edge. Dave Grimm, who works in the area, has counted 57 accidents there this year.On a rainy day, the place becomes a demolition derby -- as it did last week when showers hit.In 24 hours, four accidents occurred along the stretch, including one in which a vehicle hit the curb and flipped over a 15-foot embankment, injuring the driver and a passenger.

A dozen inmates at the Patuxent Institution in Jessup have been working for months to help bring back the American chestnut tree, and in the process give themselves a bit of a comeback as well. This week inmates and administrators at the prison handed over 603 chestnut seedlings, grown in a greenhouse on the institute grounds, that they have raised from chestnuts to 12-inch sprouts. The seedlings were accepted by representatives from the American Chestnut Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to restoring the tree species.

With her team clinging to a four-point lead and an undefeated season hanging in the balance, Archbishop Spalding's Jade Scaife muscled her way through a pack of St. Frances defenders and made a layup to provide some cushion. Scaife then grabbed a defensive rebound on the next possession and fired an outlet pass that led to another layup by Torri Chestnut. Those crucial plays helped the No. 1 Cavaliers escape with a 64-54 victory over the No. 7 Panthers on Wednesday night. Spalding improved to 15-0 on the season and sits atop the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.

It is unusual for me to side with developers, but your article about the Chestnut Ridge property being re-zoned to accommodate nine houses instead of the more lucrative zoning that currently exists is just wrong ("Developer sues Balto. Co. Council," Dec. 24). I understand the issue with the Greenspring Valley Association, but the proper time to change the zoning is during the Comprehensive Zoning Map. This allows residents time to air their views and get a fair hearing. Residents cannot be expected to go to meetings every time a councilperson wants to change zoning.

A battle over the future of the closed Chestnut Ridge golf course in Lutherville is continuing, with the company that bought the property now suing the Baltimore County Council over its decision to limit the land's development potential. In a lawsuit filed last month in Baltimore County Circuit, CR Golf Club LLC, which has ties to Timonium developer Cignal Corp., claims council members made an unfair land-use decision this summer that limited the number of homes that can be built on the approximately 230-acre property off Falls Road.

Tall, tangled grass grows on parts of the golf course at the former Chestnut Ridge Country Club. The buildings are locked. No one plays. The club closed last fall amid financial problems and a legal fight with former members. Now, its sprawling land in Lutherville is the subject of another battle. Nearby property owners are asking the Baltimore County Council to protect the land, worried that a developer will damage the environment and clog local roads by building homes there. "That green space, that stream valley was always an open space that this community knew as a golf course for nearly 60 years," said Howard Schulman, who lives on Broadway Road.

After winning the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference girls basketball title last season, some of Archbishop Spalding's veterans figured it wouldn't be too hard to repeat - until McDonogh showed them otherwise just before Christmas. The No. 4 Cavaliers learned a valuable lesson with that loss, and the change of attitude fostered success in their next conference game as they rolled over No. 8 Roland Park, 84-48, Wednesday night. "That changed everything," Cavaliers senior Camille Calhoun said of the 56-39 home-court loss to No. 3 McDonogh on Dec. 15. "We needed that because we were thinking we were too good for everyone.

Morris Chestnut made a name for himself as Ricky, a college-bound football star whose life was cut short, in the heart-wrenching 1991 film "Boyz n the Hood. " Since then, Chestnut has tackled a variety of roles. He's been a groom-to-be dealing with his fiancee's infidelity in "The Best Man"; an alien with a soft spot for humans on ABC's "V"; and Vivica A. Fox's love match in "Two Can Play That Game. " This weekend, Chestnut will be on stage at the Lyric for five performances of "What My Husband Doesn't Know," a "Fatal Attraction"-esque drama, written, directed and produced by Morgan State University alumnus David E. Talbert.
