Howard County Council member Courtney Watson attempts to justify her inaccurate and formulaic attacks on the record of her Republican opponent in the county executive race, Sen. Alan Kittleman, record with "I believe that calling out an opponent's record is fair in an election. " Isn't it time someone closely examines her record for a calling-out? How many more not-so-temporary trailer classrooms have been installed during her tenure on the Howard County school board and the council?

The company redeveloping a 100-year-old building in Baltimore's Remington neighborhood received a $100,000 grant from the state to support environmental remediation, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development announced Wednesday. The grant money, which will support about a quarter of the remediation expenses Seawall Development expects to incur, is from the Brownfield Revitalization Incentive Program, the state said. Seawall Development plans a $3.8 million renovation of the building at 2600 N. Howard St. When the rehab is complete, the 22,000-square-foot building will include 14,000 square feet of office space, a theater, and a restaurant and butcher shop run by Spike Gjerde, the restaurateur behind Woodberry Kitchen and Artifact Coffee, the state said.

WASHINGTON - They still want to go. Ten days after the space shuttle Columbia was lost and the seven astronauts on board were killed, space industry entrepreneurs pledged this week to forge ahead with their mission - to turn a buck by sending ordinary people into space. Ordinary in this case means people who might not be astronauts or members of the military but who are instead very, very rich. It costs at least $15 million to vacation in space these days - and there are few takers at that price.

In the end, after more than a year of intense debate, Maple Lawn Farms might not look much different than it did at the beginning. Last night, the Howard County Zoning Board voted 3-2 to approve a modified plan - an ever-so-slightly modified plan - for the mixed-use development on 508 acres of farmland in Fulton. The plan, proposed by Democrat Guy J. Guzzone of North Laurel/Savage, would cut the number of homes in the project by 52 - to a total of 1,116 - and leave commercial space at the same 77 acres.

If all goes as planned, sometime this morning a spacecraft will blast off from its launchpad in Cape Canaveral, Fla., and ride a fiery plume of contrails upward through the pre-dawn darkness to begin a two-week journey to the International Space Station and back. But the flight won't be just another NASA resupply mission. Instead, the Falcon 9 rocket and its unmanned Dragon cargo capsule built by Space Exploration Technologies Corporation - SpaceX for short - will be the first commercially owned and operated vehicle ever to rendezvous with the station's orbiting astronauts.

THERE WILL be no stopping three major development projects in southern Howard County. But as phased construction proceeds toward completion over the next 10 years, neither builders nor the county officials who gave them the green light should forget public reservations about these projects.They must remain vigilant against actions that would overwhelm roads and schools. Timetables must be honored so that residential construction does not outpace the commercial development. It's going to take more business tax dollars to pay for the schools and roads needed to serve so many new residents.

The developer of a five-acre, mixed-use development at the southwest corner of the intersection of West Cold Spring Lane and Interstate 83 is considering adding a fifth floor of residential units to the project. "A transit-oriented development should have a lot of density," said Judy Siegel, chair of the Linthicum-based Landex Companies, after a presentation to Baltimore's Urban Design and Architectural Review Panel on Thursday. It was the second time that early-stage plans for the development, at 2001 W. Cold Spring Lane, were shown to the panel.

Art has an uneasy relationship with the world of commercial enterprise. Commercial artists aren't necessarily held in high regard as they're often charged with tasks like devising nondescript images to hang in the food consumption areas of fast food joints. Then again, Andy Warhol, whose reputation has remained solid long after his death, was a commercial artist of sorts; his rather high volume studio was famously known as "The Factory. " Others, however, have maintained great art must be associated with great suffering, often the kind of suffering that comes from being a starving artist.

Opponents of the Maple Lawn development proposed for southern Howard County say they will decide in the coming days whether to appeal the county Zoning Board's formal approval of the project, which was released last week. The board's 40-page "Decision and Order" made final its October ruling, in a 3-2 vote, to approve the project after more than 30 public hearings. The plan brought forward by developer Stewart Greenebaum calls for about 1,100 housing units and about 1.2 million square feet of commercial space on the approximately 500-acre property, a Fulton turkey farm off Route 216.

NEW YORK - To free more land at the World Trade Center site for open space and a memorial, city and state officials are discussing options that would reduce by nearly one-third the amount of office space that would have to be built to replace the 11 million square feet lost in the terrorist attacks. The possibilities include having the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. buy the severely damaged Deutsche Bank building and then trade that land to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for some of the 16-acre trade center site, the officials said yesterday, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

Construction crews are busy filling a 12-story gap that has stood empty in the center of Towson for nearly 10 years. Workers have been transforming the former Investment Building into the Towson City Center, a $27 million project of offices and retail space near the downtown traffic circle that is expected to be completed by June. It's a new life for a structure that some once believed to be a "sick building," abandoned in early 2002 amid health complaints by state and county employees who worked there.

A group of North Laurel residents said they'd like to hear more about plans to develop the old Laurel Dodge site into a Royal Farms, even if it means changing the zoning laws created to revitalize U.S. 1. Royal Farms is considering purchasing nearly three acres on North Washington Boulevard between Davis and Madison avenues to build new convenience store that would include gas pumps and a car wash, employing 20 full-time workers. But before the company could redevelop the space, it would need a change in the zoning laws for the area, created to spruce up the aging corridor and facilitate new mixed-use development.
