GARDINER, N.Y. - As a young man in the mid-1950s, John Atwater Bradley was so taken by the Shawangunk Ridge that he skipped the last day of a conference to hike into the wilderness. He returned 14 hours later, he said, after trekking more than 40 miles. "I didn't expect to be gone that long, but every time I saw something or found something, I just kept going," said Bradley, now 70, who tells the story of his marathon hike to friends and fellow members of the Explorers Club in Manhattan.

Over 90 percent of the proposed housing developments in Maryland have gone bankrupt over the last five years; now you can add Thistle Landing to the list ("More of the same," June 12). It's a shame you have once again attacked a proposed housing development. And how dare you imply that owners and elected officials are unethical and trying to sneak around the rules. Remember, you cannot sell a home for what it costs to build anywhere in Maryland. With newspapers like yours who would want to?

The city's design panel on Thursday approved a master plan for a large mixed use development in East Baltimore opposite the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The proposal by developer MCB Real Estate LLC calls for two buildings along Eastern Avenue: a six-story apartment building, with ground floor retail and an interior courtyard, and a smaller, one-story shoppping structure, with a large 250-spot parking lot farther east. If market demand is strong, MCB could create a taller mixed-use site in place of the smaller building.

Staking out one of his legislative priorities in this year's General Assembly, Gov. Martin O'Malley argued Monday that rural development using septic systems needs to be curtailed to help clean up the Chesapeake Bay and to preserve the state's remaining farmland from suburban sprawl. O'Malley joined with environmental activists and green-leaning lawmakers to defend the bill he has introduced, which would ban any new major housing projects on septic. It also would require less-polluting but more costly septic systems on smaller housing developments or individual homes not affected by the ban. The governor said he wanted to end a "proliferation" of new housing on septic systems, which allow up to 10 times as much water-fouling nitrogen to leach into streams per household as do homes hooked up to public sewage treatment plants.

It's disappointing to hear so much rhetoric coming from members of the development community and some local politicians over new storm water rules in Maryland ("A threat to Smart Growth" Feb. 2). The plain truth is that developers appreciate a clean and healthy Chesapeake Bay when they can build waterfront homes or other development projects with real estate values boosted by water views. But when saving the bay requires them (and everyone else, by the way) to do more to protect it, they threaten to retreat to the sprawling suburbs again.

Maryland is on the verge of missing a golden opportunity this year to promote transit-oriented development and pedestrian-friendly communities. By seeking to establish State Rail Station Overlay Districts, House Bill 948 would have been in keeping with the state's traditions of progressive government and bold experimentation in civic improvement. Although the bill was defeated in the Environmental Matters Committee this year — and there is little hope for its revival — the ideas it contains are worthy of continued discussion and debate.

Baltimore County leaders hailed the official opening Wednesday of a 356-unit luxury apartment building on Route 43 in White Marsh as a magnet for businesses.

Climate change has been in the news a lot lately. The United Nations held a Climate Change Summit, which was attended by more than 100 heads of state. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of New York for a "People's Climate March," the biggest such event ever. But there was a third very important climate-related development that received much less attention than it warranted: President Barack Obama issued a new executive order that may prove to be a turning point for efforts to advance climate preparedness around the world and for U.S. foreign aid planning.

A Columbia-based real estate developer wants to build four glassy office buildings on its waterfront property in Canton, a project that could create a kind of Harbor farther East. Corporate Office Properties Trust's proposal calls for shopping, restaurants and four buildings with about 250,000 square feet of offices on top of several stories of parking, said Stephen Budorick, the real estate investment trust's executive vice president and chief operating officer. The company has no time frame for when the project could begin because it is seeking tenants before committing to construction, Budorick said.

To many, Annapolis is a Colonial town, with its 1700s architecture and its links to four signers of the Declaration of Independence. But the state's capital also played an important role in the Civil War - a history that may coincide with a controversial present-day development proposal. Local historians and history buffs believe they've found evidence that thousands of Union soldiers who had been captured and then paroled by the Confederates were once housed at a site off Forest Drive.

Shawn Taylor has been on the football coaching staff at Robinson High School in Tampa, Fla., since 2001. The school has produced former Alabama star Javier Arenas as well as other successful Football Bowl Subdivision players. For years, Taylor said, dozens of colleges would stop by and check in about players during the spring. Maryland wasn't really a presence, he said. This year, in particular, is different. The Terps have been down there. They are coming up in conversations.

The mall, located just off Interstate 695 between Charles Street and York Road, has an extensive free parking and an upscale clientele for its some 30 stores, which makes it a "hidden gem," said Brian Gibbons, CEO and chairman of the board at Greenberg Gibbons.
