The state came to Montgomery County's east side a few years ago bearing gifts: a redesigned U.S. 29 to speed commuters through to destinations in Howard County and the District. But soon after the roadwork was completed, new problems arose. Nearby shopping was now obscured from drivers' sightlines. Once-thriving stores lost business and began to close. "It's easy for people to keep on going," said Bill Strassberger, a community activist who lives near the Burtonsville shopping area, where several storefronts are vacant.

For much of this half-century, the tale of political power In heavily Democratic Baltimore County has been an east-side story. This has been especially true of campaigns for the county executive s office.Various factors -- Including demographic shifts and, possibly, the unusual absence of a home-grown candidate from the east -- could dictate a different ending to this summer s Democratic primary race for county executive. But the consistent power of the large eastern voting bloc is not something candidates can afford to take lightly, despite the fact that the old east-side Democratic political machine has been dead and buried for at least 20 years.

People in Bowleys Quarters say Milton Rehbein is easy to like. He's a native of the tight-knit shore community in eastern Baltimore County. And he put in or rebuilt just about everyone's pier or bulkhead. But his plan to turn the old family marina into upscale condominiums has divided a waterfront hamlet still coming to terms with change in the aftermath of a punishing tropical storm. How strong are feelings running in Bowleys Quarters? The local community association has endorsed the proposal - and opponents say they will push to impeach the group's president at what is expected to be a stormy meeting tonight.
