An upscale housing development, The Woods of Tiber Branch II, is planned for Ellicott City on almost 37 acres, much of it heavily wooded and containing three streams. Michael Pfau, president of Trinity Quality Homes, said the project will include 54 single-family, detached homes on the north side of Old Columbia Pike, opposite Brittany Drive. The homes will range from 2,800 to 3,000 to square feet, and prices are likely to start at more than $700,000, he said. The site is within the Ellicott City historic district, but there are no historic structures on the property, according to the Department of Planning and Zoning.

A window on an interesting time and place in Howard County's history is provided by an article that appeared in The Sun on April 28, 1907. It described a visit by an artist named Edwin Abbey, who came to Ellicott's Mills as a young boy to see members of his family in July 1864 at the height of the Civil War, when playing soldier was a major activity of the boys in town. The boys would campaign to capture the nearby hilltop community of Hilton, better known to some as Helltown. They viewed Hilton as a "hotbed of junior secessionists" who wore the despised rebel gray with military caps and brass buttons.

IN HOWARD County recently, new markings at U.S. 29, Montgomery Road and Old Columbia Pike seem to have disrupted traffic flow in a royal way.Cars hoping to turn right onto U.S. 29 first must cross the intersection at Columbia Pike -- a situation that tends to back up drivers hoping to turn onto the pike.The mess has caused flares of road rage and rush-hour tantrums as some drivers try to sneak around those law-abiders waiting at the intersection for the light to change."At rush hour, traffic backs up past the signal at the Long Gate Shopping Center almost to Long Gate Parkway," writes Dotti Fielder, whose commute has been snagged at that intersection one too many times.

Owner Jill Porter was unavailable for comment despite numerous attempts to reach her.Neighbors of the downtown Ellicott City theater are wondering why it would close its doors so quietly -- and after only seven months.

When Jeanne and Sean St. Martin bought an old house on a hill above Historic Ellicott City's Main Street, they became the owners of a building that had been turned into three apartments and had been rented for decades. They could see the sky through numerous places in the roof. That was 22 years and many improvements ago. The couple, both accountants, removed walls, created rooms, dumped three work kitchens in favor of one airy eat-in and stripped the black paint off the pine floors in a home that already had a few additions to the original house.
