Those who want to witness the benefits of underground electrical lines on a dedicated power grid need only drive down Route 29 into Howard County and pull off into Columbia. James Rouse, the visionary planner of Columbia, set out to design a modern city, which anticipated over 100,000 residents. In doing so, all aspects of city life were taken into consideration. At the top of his list must have been buried utilities. Thank God for his insight. Today, Columbia is for most the part (although some neighborhoods share an above-ground grid)

I was so glad to see Yvonne Wenger's recent article on Columbia's bike paths ("Columbia seeks to right its paths," Jan. 15). The article tells about Columbia developing a network of pathways, both on-road and off-road, interconnecting the 100 miles of existing trails for people to walk, bike or run to their destinations without their automobiles. Over 130 residents turned out last week to voice their strong support and provide feedback to Toole Design Group. Jennifer Toole, president of the Toole Group, is a nationally known traffic planner who knows how to bring folks together to make Columbia and Howard County a model of bicycle and pedestrian travel.
