Reuben Dagold wasn't sure what he was going to do when he retired as a bureau director of the Baltimore City Health Department 11 years ago at age 62. He knew one thing. "I told myself that I wasn't going to take on any responsibility," Dagold recalled. The day after he retired, Dagold joined a group from the Mountain Club of Maryland for a hike through Washington Monument State Park. He had not hiked since he was a high school student at Poly, when two teachers had organized a moonlight hike.

Follow-up: Hiking We heard from some longtime Maryland hikers after last week's story on fall hiking that we'd neglected to mention two mainstays of the state's outdoors community: the Maryland chapter of the Sierra Club and the Mountain Club of Maryland. Both organizations sponsor several hikes every month, from low-impact day hikes in and around urban areas to overnight mountain trips for hardier hikers. Activities are open to members and nonmembers alike. For more information: Sierra Club: 301-277-7111 or maryland.

Exercise can be such a dirty word. But throw in a little sightseeing, good friends and a bag of trail mix and you've got an enjoyable activity that makes the phrase "take a hike" actually seem enticing. The Mountain Club of Maryland hosts three or four year-round outdoor treks per week around several sections of the state. Each trip is usually set to a theme. Saturday's walk through the city's east side will focus on architecture. Hikers will view such landmarks as the Pagoda, American Brewery and Clifton Mansion and neighborhoods such as Patterson Park and Butchers Hill.

Country club payout rips off taxpayers Baltimore County's payoff to a private country club ("Council OKs deal to protect Towson land," Oct. 17) makes it obvious that the rich keep getting richer. Under this deal: The Country Club of Maryland will get $2 million from county taxpayers. The developer can build a smaller number of select homes, which will surely carry a premium price. The surrounding residents will keep their property values up - at the expense of county taxpayers. But I'd like to know how this deal benefits county residents from Dundalk, Parkville and Arbutus.

For the first time, the Baltimore County government will pay taxpayers' money to a private country club to restrict development on its land, under a deal approved last night by the County Council. The government will pay $2 million to the Country Club of Maryland in Towson. In return, the club agrees to keep 143 acres off limits to development for 25 years. The club will also give the county 45 acres if it ever goes out of business. The agreement, approved by a 5-2 vote, ends a long standoff between the country club and the surrounding community over plans to develop a part of the property.

Country club payment draws opposition County government's plan to pay a Towson country club $2 million to limit development on its land was questioned yesterday by a county councilman who warned of setting a "dangerous precedent." The plan is a compromise between the Country Club of Maryland and community leaders who were opposed to development on the property. The club would move ahead with plans to build 36 homes on part of its golf course, while promising to restrict development on the remaining 143 acres for 25 years.

In Randallstown, the plan calls for a community center and bustling town center where there are now vacant parking lots and empty shops. In Essex, the vision is a gleaming waterfront destination. And in Dundalk, building a marina district that would include an amateur sports center, a cruise ship terminal, a hotel and a park is among the goals. Now, Towson is taking its turn with a team of out-of-town community planners known as a UDAT -- or Urban Design Assistance Team -- that is to help Baltimore County officials and community leaders create a plan for the county seat and college town.
