Alerted by a phone call one recent Sunday, Stephen Pieper drove his black pickup the few miles from his farm in White Hall to Monkton, where he arrived too late to stop a man from plowing under the corn on 95 acres of land he'd leased for decades. Pieper, who leases more than 1,000 acres in Baltimore and Harford counties, said $100,000 worth of corn was destroyed by the farm's new owner — the CEO of Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group. David Smith, who heads the nation's largest independent TV broadcast company, had no choice, his attorney said.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Defense lawyer David B. Smith seemed desperate to get something off his mind. Soon after arriving at the Durham office of the North Carolina Center for Death Penalty Litigation, he made a disclosure that could end his 27-year legal career: He told staff attorneys that he had betrayed his own client - death row inmate Russell Tucker - because he had concluded the man deserved to die.

Not the founders and owners of a station, which is what they are, having launched WBFF-TV (Fox 45) 20 years ago and run it ever since, but the subject of their own show. And not one of the hip new comedies that air on their outlet, but a warm and wry sitcom from the early days of TV, kind of a cross between "My Three (or should it be Four?

Springfield Farm owner David Smith is finally preparing to build the roadside stand he and his family first proposed in Baltimore County in 2006. The Maryland Court of Appeals, the state's highest court, recently declined to hear the case of neighbors who opposed the plan, which they argued would diminish the rural nature of their stretch of Yeoho Road in Sparks. The neighbors saw Smith's plan as a large distribution center that would sell a wide range of products. The court decision last month ended a years-long legal fight over what constitutes a farmer's roadside stand.

Baltimore County farmer David Smith's plan for a roadside stand in Sparks selling meat, eggs and dairy products will remain on hold, as opponents of the project are taking their fight to Circuit Court. "I'm disappointed that they can't accept what the law is," Smith, owner of Springfield Farm, said Monday after learning that neighbors who have been fighting his plans for years made the filing deadline to challenge the county Board of Appeals' approval of the project last month. "I'm not surprised they're going to try to continue to beat up on us. " Facing a Monday deadline to appeal, lawyer Michael R. McCann filed the paperwork Friday, with full arguments to come in several weeks.
