People were too busy riding the Wild Mouse and dancing at the Dixie Ballroom at the old Gwynn Oak Amusement Park to notice Powhatan Hill.But across the street from the now vanished park is a charming neighborhood of modest houses nestled in a hill thick with tall trees and lush landscaping. For more than 50 years, Powhatan Hill watched over the annual German Day Festivals and Report Card Days when children with good grades rode the rides for free."People always asked us if we minded living across the street from the park," said Irene Yost, "but we never did, maybe because we're slightly around the bend from it."

I am so upset over the news that the University of Maryland may cut so many teams to address the athletic department's deficit ("Eight teams targeted to be cut," Nov. 15). With all state money the University of Maryland receives, this is not understandable! Where will out future Olympians train and who will be able to partake? Bettye A. Frantz, Gwynn Oak
