After all, it's prime fishing season, and for the first time since Tropical Storm Isabel in 2003 ravaged a favorite fishing pier at Fort Smallwood Park in Pasadena, they got to drop their earthworm-laden hooks into the rocky brackish waters of the Patapsco River. The rebuilt $490,000 pier opened unofficially Tuesday, the latest in a multimillion-dollar cleanup project orchestrated by Anne Arundel County after the park was left in disarray for decades by Baltimore City.

Owens is making a renewed push to acquire a Baltimore-owned waterfront park that sits in the county, noting a growing number of complaints from nearby residents about problems such as loud parties and drug activity.

In the black-and-white photo, a 4-year-old Henry A. Schmidt squints in the summer sunlight, surrounded by men in straw hats and women in floor-length linen dresses. His uncle's Model T is parked just out of the picture, along the banks of the Patapsco River where it winds by Fort Smallwood Park. Yesterday, Schmidt returned to Fort Smallwood carrying the photo, 72 years after the church picnic that first brought him there, to celebrate the reopening of the 100-acre park in northeastern Anne Arundel County, which languished for decades in the hands of Baltimore officials.
