EVERYBODY LOVES stories with good guys and bad guys. So it's not surprising that complicated battles over land use are reduced to a predictable formula: Underdog Citizen vs. Wealthy Developer.Indeed, a Phoenix resident used those words in a recent letter to the editor opposing a golf academy in Dulaney Valley proposed by developer Clark MacKenzie.Developers and builders largely have themselves to blame that people revile them. They are plenty of self-serving ones. And historically the industry's influence has pervaded local government, occasionally in unsavory and downright corrupt ways.

I was recently one of the many citizens to attend the public workshop about the Baltimore Washington Intermodal Facility. I was impressed by the sheer volume of information presented. I am looking forward to additional information as plans progress, and encourage my fellow community members to be a part of this process as it continues. We need to let the process work and recognize the benefits of this facility to Maryland, wherever it is sited. We also have to remember that in order to grow the current job offerings in our community we need to objectively evaluate all opportunities presented.

The word on Torrey Smith when he entered the 2011 NFL Draft was that the wide receiver could become the vertical threat offenses desire. And he has done that for the Ravens, averaging 18.7 yards per catch in his rookie campaign and posting four of six touchdown receptions of at least 25 yards. But Smith also proved that he can make the necessary grabs on short and intermediate routes that produce first downs, not just highlight-reel scores. In the team's 24-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Smith caught five passes for 48 yards, averaging 9.6 yards - his second-lowest average when making at least three grabs this season.

A battle over the future of the closed Chestnut Ridge golf course in Lutherville is continuing, with the company that bought the property now suing the Baltimore County Council over its decision to limit the land's development potential. In a lawsuit filed last month in Baltimore County Circuit, CR Golf Club LLC, which has ties to Timonium developer Cignal Corp., claims council members made an unfair land-use decision this summer that limited the number of homes that can be built on the approximately 230-acre property off Falls Road.
