Construction of a new clubhouse at Hobbit's Glen Golf Club in Harper's Choice has been delayed a month, according to Columbia Association President Phil Nelson. The demolition of the old clubhouse, which was scheduled to begin in October, has been moved back to November, with the opening of the club house scheduled for November 2014. "There have been delays in the project due to the architect not keeping up to speed with release of design data that is essential for developing the overall site plan," Nelson wrote in a memo to the CA Board of Directors.

Drivers were amply warned about lane closures on the Jones Falls Expressway and the resulting traffic jams ("Drivers find delays on JFX," April 17). Even still, I noticed that all the 20 cars in the photograph accompanying The Sun's article on the subject appeared to have just one occupant, a driver. In addition to alternate routes, people should consider another alternative - carpooling! Terry Callanan

Thank you for the commentary regarding the challenge facing women in construction ( "Construction: a boy's club," July 14). I know about it from experience. From 2007 to mid-2008, I received scholarships and worker retraining at a technical school for building construction. Out of 100 students, I was one of four who achieved an associate of applied science degree during that time. I then received direct entry into the apprentice 3.5-year program to become a union carpenter. I was lucky to receive six months of work each year.

Ever wonder why your neighborhood streams and rivers look so muddy after a heavy rain? A recent survey of construction sites in the Baltimore area found less than a quarter of the exposed soil being worked had been properly protected from erosion. The survey, involving staff and volunteers from 22 different environmental and community groups, found widely varying but generally poor controls on mud pollution being used at building sites in Baltimore City and the five surrounding counties.

Commuters entering Baltimore from the south on Monday morning found themselves in a massive traffic jam amid widespread confusion about how to navigate a new construction pattern, in part due to a failure by the Maryland Transportation Authority to update signage about the change. "It was way, way, way beyond anything I have seen," said Tamory Winfield, a MdTA spokesman, of the traffic problems on northbound Interstate 95. Crews are rushing to fix the issues before the afternoon rush hour, which will include a northbound influx of fans headed to tonight's Orioles game, he said.

How ironic that Kevin Kamenetz suddenly is "on the side of the taxpayers - and good common sense!" ( "Kamenetz trumps Dance," Aug. 4.) And what a shame that many of these critical issues were not deemed to be important in previous circumstances! Where was this common sense when the citizens of Mays Chapel implored the county executive, County Council and the school system to solve the central corridor school overcrowding problems in ways that included: converting Cromwell Valley to a neighborhood elementary school rather than a magnet school, using unused local school seats to avoid creation of a commuter school, protecting the community from a dangerous onslaught of excess traffic, saving 10 acres of beautiful forested parkland, and selecting far more cost effective ways of creating additional school seats?

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has shown no shyness in the past about standing behind the school system's construction and renovation plans in the face of community opposition - case in point, his infamous "my job to talk, yours to listen" press conference at the ground breaking for a new elementary school in Mays Chapel last year. Yet on Friday he authored a sweeping re-write of Superintendent Dallas Dance's plans for additions, modernization and new construction involving three elementary schools and a middle school in the greater Towson area, plans that had drawn community opposition for everything from traffic to the destruction of century-old trees.
