The average golfer enjoys water about as much as the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz . " Those teeing up at Eisenhower Golf Course, a tree-lined public layout in Crownsville, might have even worse nightmares than the norm. Thick, native grasses up to 3 feet high surround every creek and pond, reaching toward the sky as though part of a fiendish plot to snag wayward shots. "I tell the players we have great sales at the pro shop," says course superintendent Mike Papineau in joking reference to the fact that golf courses resell the balls they find in hazards.

The Green Bay Packers signed former Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey to their active roster Monday. Dorsey, who was selected by the Packers in the seventh round of last year's draft, spent the first five weeks of this season on Green Bay's practice squad after spending last year on the team's injured reserve because of a toe injury. Dorsey, who had five catches for 52 yards for Green Bay during the preseason, only had 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at Maryland in 2013.

N o doubt, many environmentalists around the Chesapeake Bay wish Howard Ernst would go away. His recent criticism of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and suggestion that its president, William C. Baker, resign, isn't the team spirit they'd hope for as green organizations rally for vital federal clean water legislation in 2010. Mr. Ernst, a Naval Academy professor and author of the new book, "Fight for the Bay," may be the skunk at the garden party, but from bad oysters to gas leaks, we ignore unpleasant odors at our peril.

The historic Rodgers Forge neighborhood in Towson has adopted guidelines for residents who want to install solar panels, an effort community leaders hope can strike a balance between preserving the community's architecture and embracing alternative energy. A committee of the Rodgers Forge Community Association worked for about a year to come up with the recommendations, which the full board approved in September, according to immediate past president Stu Sirota. "I think this shows that Rodgers Forge is a progressive neighborhood that cares about its history and maintaining the architectural integrity of its homes, while still being able to allow a modern and innovative green technology," Sirota said.

Rallying others to his cause, he founded the Jones Falls Watershed Association, which later merged...

At first, Baldwin Homes didn't build green. Then it dipped its corporate toe in - one home here, another there. Now the Gambrills company is constructing an entire green neighborhood. It's the story of U.S. home building writ small. Green accounted for 2 percent of the new-home market in 2005, according to a report by industry data provider McGraw Hill Construction. By last year it had ballooned to 23 percent - nearly a quarter. "I don't think green is a niche market anymore," said Michele A. Russo, director of green content at McGraw Hill Construction.

Editor: I was pleased to see Bryna Zumer's article in last week's Aegis about the growing popularity of solar electric power. I was disappointed Harford County Public Schools did not get mentioned, as we were one of the first to install photo-voltaic systems on seven of our schools in 2011.  I have attached information about our systems. More recently, we were recognized for being one of the first school systems in the state to implement a comprehensive commercial composting program at several schools.

Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene had served more than three decades in uniform without a combat tour when he got the assignment last year: He was wanted in Kabul to help train the Afghan National Security Forces. Jim Costigan, a former co-worker, golf partner and friend, had asked Greene the question before. Now he asked again. "I said, 'Harry, no one's going to be critical of you if you retire,' " Costigan, a retired Army colonel, remembered Wednesday. "'Just retire, now.' "And he said to me, 'I sent soldiers, officers, NCOs, men and women to similar assignments over the last 10 years.
