I agree with the editorial that states that banning the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy would be laughable if it weren't so serious ("Banned in Bel Air," June 2). Actually, while reading about the decision, I did get a laugh. It reminded me of a potential Saturday Night Live skit. I can just picture the librarian clutching her breast - excuse me, I don't want to arouse prurient thoughts - clutching her hand to her bosom, and declaring, "Oh, my what a disgusting book, I must hurry and finish it so I can read the second one. " I don't know if the book is obscene, but banning it is. Mignon Rosenthal, Pikesville

When it comes to picking their next state senator, many Harford County voters will choose between two familiar names. The Democrat is Mary-Dulany James, a four-term state delegate whose father, William S. James, was a Maryland Senate president. The Republican is Bob Cassilly, who served on Bel Air's board of town commissioners and on the Harford County Council — and whose two brothers are also running for office in Harford this year. Both James and Cassilly believe they have the experience and vision to represent Harford's interests in Annapolis, replacing Nancy Jacobs, a Republican who is retiring after 16 years in the Senate.

North Harford football coach Gene Liebel was named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week on Wednesday. Liebel, in his first year as head coach, earned the award after his Hawks came back to defeat Havre de Grace, 15-14, last Friday. Down 14-0 in the second half, North Harford quarterback Braden Stinar threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Chandler Schmidt and a 16-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Keating to bring the Hawks within one point of the Warriors. Rather than play for the tie, Liebel decided to go for the 2-point conversion.

1830: Harford Furnace formed On Nov. 5, 1830, an indenture was drawn up between Samuel Irwin, John Kirk and John Withers, three entrepreneurs from Pennsylvania who sought "to carry on and work a furnace on James Run called the Harford Furnace." With $18,000, the partners purchased 1,947 acres on which to construct the furnace and outbuildings. In 1833, two of the partners sold their shares and the ironworks became known as Harford Furnace Co. At its peak in the late 1850s, Harford Furnace comprised 5,000 acres with 48 buildings, including a library, post office, general store, chemical building, warehouses, mills and residences.

A federal judge ruled this week that owners of multiple Harford County properties - where portions of a 21-mile underground gas pipeline are being installed under an eminent domain claim - cannot fully access funds set aside by the gas company as a form of collateral until a final determination is made at trial on compensation. Columbia Gas Transmission LLC was granted access to the properties in June to begin installing a back-up gas line between Owings Mills and Fallston under condition that it file a cash bond payment of $231,675 to the court, according to court records.

For most of Maryland, David R. Craig might be remembered best as the candidate for governor who finished second to Larry Hogan in the Republican primary earlier this year. But there's another title the outgoing Harford County Executive ought to have wrapped up - the elected official least interested in a pay raise. On Tuesday, Mr. Craig vetoed legislation that would have raised the county executive salary from the current $105,000 (a $90,000 base plus cost-of-living adjustments) to $130,000.

The National Weather Service is adjusting weather warning boundaries in Howard, Baltimore and Harford counties to reflect geographic differences that can cause wide weather variations. The changes could help reduce false alarms and make advisories more precise, forecasters at the weather service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office wrote in a post on their website . That could be particularly useful for winter storms, when areas at higher elevations and further from urban heat islands can receive significantly higher amounts of snow and ice. On the new map, a line will extend across the three counties dividing them into northern and southern sections (the weather service already divides Baltimore County into northern and southern sections, but the boundary is changing)

The rise of this city in Harford County and its decline owed much to U.S. 40 and the car-centric culture of 20th century America. From World War II to the 1960s, motels and gas stations sprouted along the main road from Baltimore to Philadelphia to accommodate road-weary travelers. Diners served up coffee and gossip to neighbors and road-trippers alike on what was also the main local drag. But when Interstate 95 opened, running parallel to U.S. 40 just a few miles to the west, the flow of out-of-town cars slowed to a trickle.
