After living here in Columbia for 34 years, I thought I had become inured to the oddities and missteps of amateur government. Well, a decorative fountain meant for children to play in the middle of Symphony Woods ("Reviews mixed for planned fountain," Feb. 2) certainly ranks up there with bad software decisions and water flumes that break down. Has anyone ever sat near that same kind of fountain now operating in Fairfax, Va.? What you see there is a constant parade of parents and children and noisy adolescents.

I'm a practitioner of parkour and the owner of Urban Evolution Baltimore (a parkour gym), and the loss of the McKeldin Fountain from the Inner Harbor would be very unfortunate ("McKeldin Fountain, a threatened Baltimore landmark," July 31). It's rare that architecture in cities is both interesting, beautiful, and usable for traceurs, so gems like McKeldin Fountain are treasured among our community. From the beginning of my practice more than eight years ago, McKeldin Fountain has been an inspiring place.

This week, Watchdog updates readers about an unresolved problem. Update: The fountain in the Druid Hill Park reservoir is going to remain out of commission for the time being. Watchdog last updated the condition of the landmark in 2009, explaining that phragmites, an invasive water plant, had clogged the fountain's lines. At the time, officials with Baltimore's Department of Public Works had planned to have the fountain restored to working order in 2010. But more than two years have passed, and nothing has changed.

The wonderful McKeldin Fountain at Baltimore's Inner Harbor was running beautifully recently. The site was clean thanks to a team of workers, and there were several families there enjoying this important architectural landmark with its bridges, waterfalls, sculpture and passageways. I can't understand why The Sun is refusing to cover the controversy over losing such an important structure. The city plans to remove this piece of Baltimore history to replace it with nothing but grass.

The problem: Drinking fountains near Rash Field on the Inner Harbor promenade weren't working. The back story: Everyone expects the street furniture along Baltimore's avenues and byways to experience wear and tear now and then. But it's troubling when some damage appears to be caused deliberately. That seems to be the case with this week's Watchdog. Marcus Mencarini regularly runs along the Harbor Promenade from his Fells Point home. He said he has noticed that as long ago as last summer one of the two drinking fountains near Rash Field, between the Rusty Scupper restaurant and the Maryland Science Center , was not working.

THE PROBLEM -- A fountain in Druid Hill Park went dry. THE BACKSTORY -- The Druid Lake Fountain, built in 1959, has had its share of troubles. It functioned until 1992 - even when a decomposed body turned up in 18 inches of water in 1969 - but then broke down. It was fixed in 1998, then had to be shut off again. Then, in 2004, after a $700,000 rehabilitation, the fountain in the lake shot water 12 to 25 feet in the air against a backdrop of red-amber and blue lights. It was hailed as the rebirth of the Reservoir Hill neighborhood, and in some ways part of a rebirth of a city enjoying a comeback from years of crime and abandonment.

Nikko Pontrello scored the game-winning goal 19 seconds into overtime, and No. 14 Loyola Maryland beat No. 12 Penn State, 12-11, on Saturday in a game that was moved indoors to Holuba Hall because of last week's snowstorm. The host Nittany Lions (1-1) scored the final four goals of regulation for an 11-all score and sent the game to overtime, but Graham Savio won the faceoff for the Greyhounds (1-1) to start the extra frame.

Hey, "The Walking Dead" is back on AMC! It's been two months since we've been able to spend our Sunday nights watching men and women in tattered clothing brutally slaughtering rotting men and women in even more tattered clothing/skin, unless you happened to catch that one really weird episode of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" on the Memorable Entertainment network. Sunday night's return - titled "After" - was a very strong showing, in this humble blogger's opinion. If you didn't start getting a little choked up during the scene where little Carl almost has to squeeze the trigger to put down his father, Rick, you might want to be tested to see if you're a serial killer.

Georgetown junior attackman Jeff Fountain (St. Paul's), who is second on the team with 16 goals, left the Hoyas' 8-6 loss to Villanova on Wednesday with an injury, and his status isn't immediately known. Also, Hoyas senior attackman-midfielder Brian Casey is not expected back anytime soon after a leg injury in a 16-8 victory over Providence on March 16. A Georgetown Prep grad, Casey was the team's leading scorer at the time of his injury. The possible good news: Senior Chris Nourse , a starting defenseman, is day-to-day with a leg injury suffered in a 17-12 win over Marquette on March 29. Nourse did not dress against the Wildcats, but his injury is not as severe as was first feared.

Jeff Fountain picked an opportune time to rediscover his game. In just his second game as a starting attackman, the Lutherville native and St. Paul's graduate pumped in three goals in Georgetown's 9-8 overtime win against visiting Navy on Sunday at Multi-Sport Field in Washington. His last goal was the game winner with 2:04 left in the extra session. Fountain, a converted midfielder, said he was eager to improve on his zero-goal, one-assist performance in the Hoyas' 11-10 overtime loss to Lafayette on Feb. 16. “I had a tough week last week,” he said.

Hotel restaurants often get a bad rap. Many are known for boring decor, pricey food and lackadaisical service. FountainSide at the Doubletree by Hilton in Pikesville fits some of those descriptions - but the service is anything but lazy. The restaurant and its lounge occupy a large space on the Reisterstown Road side of the Doubletree. We entered through the lobby, finding the space fairly easily, despite the lack of clear signage. Later we realized that the hotel's side door was actually more convenient to the restaurant, but first-time visitors would have trouble finding that entrance.

A couple of areas of Harford County particularly hard hit by power outages from Storm Sandy were Fallston and Fountain Green, where many businesses and homes were still dark Tuesday night. Wednesday morning, however, power had restored to much of Fallston and to Fountain Green, and life appeared to be getting back to normal. It was a far different story Tuesday, night, however. The entire Route 1 commercial strip in Fallston from the Bel Air Bypass to the Baltimore County line did not have power around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

There is one campaign promise Gov.-elect Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. shouldn't have trouble keeping: turning on Comptroller William Donald Schaefer's beloved fountain at the governor's mansion. Schaefer wrote an angry letter last month to the secretary of the Department of General Services - which oversees the grounds of the governor's mansion - accusing someone in the agency of allowing the fountain to deteriorate since Gov. Parris N. Glendening turned it off 18 months ago. "I have been advised that the fountain in the garden of the governor's mansion has been allowed to deteriorate and is in need of serious repair," the former governor wrote to Secretary Peta N. Richkus.
