It is bordered on the west by Wiltondale and other communities along York Road. It also overlooks the Country Club of Maryland and borders Herring Run.William F. Blair, who moved to Aigburth Road 25 years ago and headed the community association in the late 1970s, said many of the older people are moving to retirement communities and being replaced by younger people.

A half-century ago Betty Bieretz and her husband, Louis, were out for a Sunday drive in a newly developed area known as Knollwood. "It really was the location that attracted us because at the time this was out in the country," Mrs. Bieretz said. When they found the development still had a lot for sale, the Bieretzes jumped at the chance to build a home in Knollwood. "At one time you could hear a pin drop back here. One nice thing about this neighborhood is that when the homes were built each house was different.

As the sun rose over the Patuxent River yesterday, fewer than a half dozen of the 191 starters in the 13-class fleet competing in the 13th Annual Solomons Island Race had crossed the line. What light air they had disappeared altogether, bringing fear to the host Eastport Yacht Club's race committee that 13 would be unlucky and mean one of the slowest races ever.The wind eventually filled in again from the south after 9:30 a.m. and sped throngs of spinnakered racers into the Patuxent River and across the finish line near Solomons in bunches between 10 and 11 a.m.First over the finish line in the 55-mile race from Annapolis, which began Friday evening, was PHRF A-1 winner Jim Muldoon's Santa Cruz 70 Donnybrook, just before 3:30 a.m. Because of the long lags in time between Donnybrook's finish and that of the others in its class, Muldoon easily held his lead by a comfortable margin of more than 30 minutes corrected time over second-place finisher Jeff Klein and his team on Dragon Fly.Although winners in many handicap classes moved into position corrected time, another team which got the gun and kept the win was Dave and Beth Scheidt and their crew on their J/24 AJ, who topped the PHRF C class by 10 minutes corrected time and 20 minutes elapsed.

DAMIAN L. Halstad might have made a good Circuit Court judge, but we'll never know. The Westminster lawyer declined a recent appointment to the bench from Gov. Parris N. Glendening, citing an expected partisan political scramble in the primary election next March. "It would have made running for judge look like running for dog catcher," he said.He's right. The shameful process of forcing Circuit Court judges to run a politicized, expensive campaign to retain their seat should be eliminated.

On June 14, the Annapolis to Newport sailing race will begin its 50th sprint to Rhode Island from a starting line near the mouth of the Severn River -- and the field of 47 will include two dozen Maryland yachts.The biennial event is one of the oldest and most prestigious ocean races, and if the weather conditions are right, James Muldoon of Washington and his newly launched Donnybrook could break the course record of 53 hours, 31 minutes set 10 years ago.Oddly enough, the record was set by Starlight Express, which later became Muldoon's first Donnybrook, a Santa Cruz 70 that was totaled recently during a regatta in the Caribbean.

WHEN HE played basketball for the New York Knickerbockers, Bill Bradley prevailed with a superior sense of positioning, an attribute memorialized in a book by John McPhee called "A Sense of Where You Are."By dint of arduous practice and a feel for the flow of a game, Mr. Bradley always knew where he was in relation to the basket, his opponents and the ball. And he had the moves to score or to find an open teammate.He has shown some of the same skills as a politician, winning election to the United States Senate and, now, commanding big money supporters in his Democratic primary challenge to Vice President Al Gore.
