PLANS TO TURN over an abandoned state tuberculosis hospital near Marriottsville to an international aid organization should provide needed relief for the state, for thousands of people served by Harvest International -- and relief from the pressure to use it for more housing development in south Carroll County.The 70-acre Henryton Hospital complex of 18 shingled buildings close to Patapsco Valley State Park on the border of Carroll and Howard counties has been vacant for a dozen years, unusable by other state agencies and costing more than $100,000 in annual maintenance.
