But the billboard-sized banner that one homeowner recently put in his front yard - along with dozens of smaller signs that pepper Oklahoma Road - reveal that this neighborhood, where old and new residential subdivisions abut a few remaining farms and a stretch of the Liberty Reservoir watershed, is in the midst of a controversy.

" Since the state prison or "big house" is indeed in Baltimore, this is an appropriate if unflattering appellation. Meanwhile the Irish town of Baltimore is now called by another name in Irish.
