Sixty Dorsey's Search residents heeded the call for a town meeting last night about proposals that would allow apartments and offices in their Columbia village on land without Columbia's strict covenants. It was a testing of the waters to see how people felt about an idea that comes on the heels of plans for a retail center at Old Annapolis and Columbia roads -- which residents shot out of the water. This time, people had more questions than opinions, but they seemed to harbor reservations about the idea of crowds of extra neighbors moving in on these outparcels, some of the many islands around which the planned town grew.

The Columbia Association has dropped its plan to heat the Dorsey Hall pool year-round after a flurry of complaints from nearby residents and members of the Columbia aquatics community, CA Chief Operating Officer Rob Goldman said Friday. An outpouring of community concerns, including safety, from the nearby Dorsey Hall Homeowners Association prompted the CA Board of Directors to delay voting on the project, which Goldman said led to the project's withdrawal. Part of the reason the Dorsey Hall site was selected was a pending construction project to improve the pool's bathhouse and nearby meeting house.

ONE OF Howard County's oldest structures, an 18th-century manor house known as Dorsey Hall, will be restored as part of a $3.5 million office center scheduled to open early next year. Howard County Executive James N. Robey joined developers Richard Talkin and Donald Reuwer on Tuesday to break ground for the project, called the Dorsey Hall Manor Executive Offices. The development, at 5100 Dorsey Hall Drive in Columbia, will include the construction of 32,000 square feet of office space in four two-story buildings.

In reading the article ("CA explores heated pool open year-round," June 6) on the possibility of turning the Dorsey Hall pool into a heated year-round pool, my memory was jarred. CA currently has two heated outdoor pools, Stevens Forest and Swansfield. Wouldn't making necessary adjustments to either of those pools be more fiscally responsible than reconfiguring a third? Just a thought. Sue Heyman Columbia

The new year finds the Howard County Board of Education not much further beyond where it was at this time last year on the issue of school redistricting. Most significant is the unresolved controversy surrounding the proposed boundary changes for Wilde Lake and Centennial high schools.The board has chosen so far to handle the problem in piecemeal fashion, leaving the big question -- whether to redistrict the Dorsey Hall community of Columbia into Wilde Lake -- unanswered until this year. Whether that transfer goes forward as expected will test the mettle of the board in doing what is in the best interest of all students, regardless of the political fallout.

The Howard County school board will have two alternatives to consider as it takes up high school redistricting this year.Associate Superintendent Maurice Kalin unveiled the alternatives last night to some 150 parents who went to Hammond High School to learn more about this year's redistricting proposals.Both alternatives would change the school board's tentative decision last year to transfer Dorsey Hall neighborhood students to River Hill High School, still under construction and expected to open in 1996.

In a corner of a conference room in the historic Dorsey Hall manor house, Richard Talkin flipped a light switch on and off, then opened and closed wooden window blinds. His gaze was fixed on two oil paintings that collectively depict a leafless black tree against an expansive cloud-studded winter sky. The diptych is mounted on adjoining walls in the home's former dining room. First somber gray, then awash with a red-violet hue, and finally flooded with a cool-blue cast, the bold landscapes proved chameleon-like as Talkin altered the lighting.

Students of Howard County, your lesson today is brought to you courtesy of your own elected school board. Pay attention and you will witness how adults held in high esteem can sometimes take the low road when faced with a choice between conscience and capitulation.That is what the school board has done in its decision to exclude the community of Dorsey Hall from being redistricted into Wilde Lake High School. The socio-economic balance that could have been achieved by that redistricting was sacrificed by board members who have ill served the community on this matter.
