THE PROBLEMDrivers whiz out of a Perry Hall community and turn onto a main road without yielding to other motorists. THE BACKSTORY Tasia Howe of Perry Hall travels Gerst Road every weekday and says she is often cut off by drivers turning left onto Gerst from Forge Haven Drive. Forge Haven is a private road that leads to the larger part of the Glenside Farms community. It forms a T-intersection with Gerst Road. "They assume you're going to make a right and go their way," Howe said. She thought there had been a stop sign on Forge Haven that had been knocked down in a recent accident.

BALTIMORE COUNTY was trying to do a good thing when it sought to buy Lawrence Gerst's farm for a park in Perry Hall, in the heart of the planned, 4,000-home Honeygo community. With a shortage of regional recreational facilities and demand certain to grow, county officials are worried about buying parkland before development drives up land prices.They sought the Gerst property, ideal from the standpoint of topography and location, but Mr. Gerst wasn't willing to sell -- at any price. At that point, the County Council prepared to start condemnation proceedings.

Criticized as being insensitive to property owners' rights, Baltimore County officials yesterday dropped plans to condemn a longtime farming family's land and use it as the centerpiece park in the fledgling community of Honeygo.Instead of condemning the land -- which has been in the Gerst family for four generations spanning more than 130 years -- county officials will renew their search for a site for a regional park in Perry Hall or White Marsh. County officials also are seeking an agreement that would allow them to match any new offer for the Gerst property.

A just-retired Baltimore County police colonel takes over today as chief of Towson University's police department. Col. Bernard J. Gerst, who rapidly rose from a county police cadet to several high-ranking posts within the department, retired Monday as the head of the Human Services Bureau. The choice of Gerst completes the university's yearlong search for a chief. Campus officials say their decision to hire Gerst signifies their determination to work more closely with county police. Gerst has been given the title of director of public safety and will oversee a force of 42 officers and Aron, the police dog. The officers patrol the 328-acre campus and the surrounding neighborhoods, where some of the university's 16,000 students reside.

It is the only life Lawrence Gerst has known, and even at an age when many would be looking to retire, he has no intention of stopping.But he may have no choice.Baltimore County officials, in what apparently would be an unprecedented move, are seeking to condemn his land and use it as the centerpiece park in the planned community of Honeygo."Why should Baltimore County try to run us off this land?" asked Gerst, walking the fields that have been in his family for more than a century.
