An 11th-hour out-of-court settlement ended a six-month dispute between the county and a North County sand-and-gravel operation last week.The agreement, hashed out Wednesday just before a public appeals hearing, gives the Belle Grove Corp. the right to continue accepting dirt without a rubble landfill permit but allows the county to inspect and regulate the pit almost as if it were a rubble landfill.The county had wanted Belle Grove to acquire a rubble landfill permit or stop filling a 17-acre gravel pit at the intersection of Belle Grove and Old Annapolis roads.

For years, Harry Jennings and his neighbors on Summerfield Road put up with bad-tasting, corrosive water that ate through plumbing and ruined appliances. They also endured a dark, gritty dust wafting in the wind that would coat their cars and clothes and even stain the outside of their homes. "When the leaves weren't on the trees in winter, it would blow right through the woods," recalls Jennings, a truck driver who has lived all his 60 years in the wooded enclave off Route 3 in Gambrills.

Texas authorities on horseback and foot searched a gravel pit near Waco yesterday for the body of missing Baylor basketball player Patrick Dennehy as his former teammate, Marylander Carlton Dotson, was held without bail in Chestertown on murder charges. A Kent County judge said yesterday morning that a hearing would be held within 30 days to determine whether Dotson would be extradited to Texas to face charges that could bring the death penalty. A Texas arrest warrant says Dotson, who helped his high school team win a state championship, admitted killing Dennehy, a friend and former roommate.

Harford County is going ahead with its 10-year waste management plan, with the exception of two controversial sites that state environmental officials say must remain because of legal precedent. The County Council and County Executive David Craig dropped their appeal last week of the state's decision to reject the entire plan because the county proposed to eliminate the two sites, a former landfill in Abingdon and a gravel pit in Havre de Grace. After receiving permission from the Maryland Department of the Environment to move ahead with other aspects of the plan, county officials say they eagerly await legislation being drafted by Del. Barry Glassman to give counties more autonomy over their long-term waste management plans.

Residents of the Forks of the Patuxent - a semi-rural area south of Odenton - are vowing to appeal an Anne Arundel County hearing officer's decision to grant a developer more time to process the permits he needs to open a landfill and gravel pit. "How can anyone imagine how a landfill could be put there without contaminating everything around it," said Buz Meyer, president of the Forks of the Patuxent Improvement Association. Meyer and his neighbors have been fighting the landfill, which would be located near Wilson Town, a historic African-American community, for more than a decade.
