Corporate Office Properties Trust said it sold office buildings in White Marsh, Hunt Valley and Hanover as part of $61 million in property and land sales in the first three months of the year. The Columbia-based office real estate investment trust primarily serves government and defense-related tenants. The sales are part of a strategy, announced in April 2011, to shed non-core holdings such as suburban office complexes and focus on high-security buildings designed for government agencies and contractors.

When a Baltimore couple combined two Federal Hill rowhouses into a double-wide home a few years ago, the state's tax assessors made a mistake: Instead of factoring in the values of two addresses, they set the new home's value as if it were still just a single rowhouse. As a result of the state's mistake, which officials acknolwedge, the city issued annual tax bills the past three years that were thousands of dollars lower than they should have been. On Friday, after the state recalculated the value going back to 2009, Marci De Vries learned just how much in back taxes she and her husband will owe on the South Hanover Street property: $7,585.

It is incredibly frustrating, not only to myself but to many residents of the Elkridge/Hanover area, that CSX claims to elicit public involvement in the site selection process (for a new railway facility) yet continues to refuse to release details on how they arrived at their cost estimates for each of the proposed sites. Cost estimates for the proposed sites are not the only concern surrounding this issue but, in my opinion, CSX is being brazenly deceptive at this early stage of the process and I have a deep concern that CSX will continue to operate as such, if not more so, as the process continues.

I find it unconscionable that our esteemed members of the "fourth estate" employed by Patuxent Publishing have been relatively biased in their reporting on the siting of the proposed CSX intermodal site in Maryland. Not once have your reporters done any obvious investigative work to confirm what residents suspect: that CSX has been less than transparent in its disclosures to the general public. Whenever anyone asks CSX (and the Maryland Department of Transportation to a lesser degree)

Elkridge residents are organizing an aggressive campaign to remove their area from consideration for a proposed rail container transfer facility that has also thrown a monkey wrench into Howard County's plans for a new elementary school nearby. "We want to see if our elected officials can get this site taken off the list today," said Howard Johnson, president of the Greater Elkridge Community Association. Residents working under his group's umbrella have created a Facebook page on the issue and written a nine-page letter to elected officials detailing their opposition.
