Janet Middlebrooks and her sister-in-law were always trying to diet, so when they met for weekly excursions at Harundale Mall half a century ago, they always ordered the Waldorf salad at the upstairs cafeteria. From the get-go, Middlebrooks, now 81, was a devotee of the Glen Burnie shopping center, the first enclosed mall east of the Mississippi. She saw the governor cut the ribbon at the mobbed opening, bought groceries and clothes, and occasionally participated in evening square-dancing demonstrations.

Rouse Co. officials have told merchants that they are putting Harundale Mall up for sale. The merchants say they don't care."It doesn't make a difference who owns it as long as they do something to bring it back up," said Robert Braun, who owns Hair Salon in the southeast corner of the mall. "Businesses have sort of drifted. I still think Harundale's got a lot of potential."Mr. Braun opened his salon in November and said he still plans to expand his business. "If someone took an interest in the mall and rebuilding the original concept of what it was supposed to be, you could have a successful mall," he said.

Older residents recall baseball games, neighborhood celebrations and Easter egg hunts in the park on the east side of the north Anne Arundel County community of Harundale, which had athletic fields, a basketball court and a playground. Now weeds grow through the cracked asphalt of the old basketball court. Shrubs and small trees grow in the infield. Only a charred skeleton remains of the playground equipment, and the only reminders of spring-mounted rocking horses are rusting bits of metal sticking out of the ground.

The Harundale Youth Sports League already runs a popular winter basketball program. But Rudy Brown, the organization's treasurer and a coach, was among those who noticed something interesting two years ago: The kids wanted to keep playing in the spring. So the league decided to do something a little different, starting a spring basketball league, at a time usually reserved for baseball, softball, lacrosse and soccer. Since its launch in 2004, the youth spring basketball league has nearly doubled in size and is gearing up to start another season in about two weeks.

The Hornets won their division tournament with a 4-0 record. They beat out the Heat, who were second with a 3-1 mark.

For 18 years, Harundale residents avoided the park tucked behind Guildford Road. Weeds sprouted from fields where neighborhood kids once played baseball. Trash littered the hills where children hunted for Easter eggs each spring. Where colorful rocking horses once sat, only rusty stubs remained. "When we first moved in, we walked down here, and I was like, `jeez!'" recalled seven-year resident Marc Rubin. He didn't see anyone trying to change it, either. "The attitude here," Rubin recalled, "was that if you wanted something done, you just did it yourself."
