Rather than melting with yesterday's warmer temperatures, the snowplow saga pitting the husband of Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend against Baltimore County lingered yesterday, as county officials released a fact sheet that sharply contradicted David Townsend's version of events. The two-page summary included assertions that David Townsend was told two years ago that the road he lives on was privately owned and would no longer be plowed. County officials also say Townsend threatened to wake up County Executive C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger if his road wasn't cleared.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend arrived in Annapolis in 1984 as a young lawyer working for the House Appropriations Committee, and promptly broke the rules. Townsend was trying to persuade the state to yank its investments from corporations operating in South Africa. She had traveled to Johannesburg a few months before taking the job, forming strong views she couldn't keep to herself. "The appropriations committee members were discussing it, and there was a legislator who I thought said something inappropriate and dumb," Townsend recalled recently.

On a recent afternoon in Annapolis, in a classroom stocked with uncomfortable straight-back chairs and a giant wooden table, David L. Townsend -- professor by the standard definition, tutor in the language of St. John's College -- quietly moderated a wide-ranging discussion of two 1633 sonnets penned by the metaphysical poet John Donne. The same day, his wife Kathleen, Maryland's lieutenant governor, stepped onto the campaign trail where she has sometimes stumbled on her message, to ramp up attacks on her Republican gubernatorial opponent, Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., declaring him "clearly out of step with Maryland's mainstream."

With heavy snow blanketing the stately streets of Ruxton, David Townsend made a simple request to a Baltimore County Public Works Department crew: send a plow down our street, so my wife and others can get to work. But a top county official said the reluctant decision this weekend to plow the street where Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend lives was wrong because the lane appears to be privately owned. "In the end, I don't agree that the county should use public resources on private roads -- it's not appropriate," said Charles R. Olsen, county public works director.

Night turned into Day-Oh ... when Harry Belafonte broke into song at HeartFest 2000. The King of Calypso wowed a crowd of 1,600 at the Martin's West shindig -- sharing the night's honors with his longtime friend and renowned Johns Hopkins cardiac surgeon, Dr. Levi Watkins Jr. Belafonte's two-song concert (the other song, his classic "Matilda") topped off a heartfelt, and heart-healthy, evening. The partygoers dined on low-fat offerings from area restaurants and caterers, and danced to music by Stevie V. and the Heart Attackers, a group of doctors and health-care specialists from Hopkins and Howard County General Hospital.

DAVID Townsend suffers the fortune and misfortune of having the state's second highest elected official as his spouse. Had his wife been anyone other than Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the driver of the Baltimore County snow plow would never have let Mr. Townsend use his radio last week to speak to a supervisor about plowing Crosmorr Lane. Because his wife is lieutenant governor, a disproportionate amount of attention has been focused on whether the county should plow that dead-end street in Ruxton.

After a day of silence that let her victorious opponent launch a transition without distraction, Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend dissected her unsuccessful bid for governor yesterday during a three-mile hike with family members along a paved railroad bed in Annapolis. Townsend said her campaign met its goals in heavily Democratic Baltimore and Montgomery and Prince George's counties, but that Republicans deserved "kudos" for generating a historic turnout elsewhere that propelled Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. into office.
