There is an area of West Baltimore that has been devoid of a grocery store for 15 years. Yes,15 years ( "City says largest supermarket to open in Howard Park after years of lobbying," July 28). The term for an area or community bereft of a food store is "food desert. " Food (and water) are inherently vital to our survival as human beings. Baltimore perceives itself as a major American city yet pockets of it have been without major food stores for 15 years? Shouldn't the politicians be ultimately accountable?

Republican gubernatorial nominee Larry Hogan blamed Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown for Baltimore's "food deserts" Thursday, suggesting that the O'Malley-Brown administration's tax policies led the the recent demise of the Stop Shop Save grocery chain. In a statement released by the campaign, Hogan minimized the impact of Thursday's opening of a new, 67,000-foot ShopRite store in Howard Park. “ShopRite expanding in Baltimore is a good thing, but I would have hoped this major corporation would have chosen to locate in one of Baltimore City's food deserts where unemployment and poverty are far higher than the state average," Hogan said.

Many of the first homes built in Howard Park in the early 1900s were bungalows and cottages. They were priced for a buyer who wanted to move from a rowhouse, but couldn't afford one of the large houses in Roland Park or Forest Park. Today, Howard Park is still a community where homeownership is very affordable."Buyers can get a spacious single-family home and a convenient location for a moderate price," said Katy Grove of O'Conor, Piper and Flynn ERA's Owings Mills office.The houses, most of which are on eighth-acre lots, range in price from $65,000 for a Cape Cod to $100,000 for a turn-of-the-century cottage.

One of Harford County's hottest housing developments is one of its oldest -- Howard Park.A community of about 400 ranch homes off Route 24 in Bel Air, Howard Park provides consistent and constant competition to newer townhouses being built throughout the county, according local real estate agents.The 40-year-old ranchers, most with basements and either two or three bedrooms, don't hit the market that often, but when they do, they tend to sell fast, and often for the asking price or more, said Phyllis Giese, a Realtor with the Forest Hill office of O'Conor Piper and Flynn ERA. With prices ranging from $80,000 to about $130,000, these single-family homes often are as affordable as newer townhouses in Abingdon, Bel Air, Forest Hill and other parts of the county, Giese said.

John Parker, the manager of a Howard Park hardware store, remembers the days when he walked to the nearby Super Pride to grab a few items for lunch. "I used to love to get something from that supermarket, bring it back here and cook it," Parker recalled. The Super Pride store closed five years ago, creating a major inconvenience for Parker and others in the Northwest Baltimore neighborhood. With the loss of their only supermarket, Howard Park residents must drive miles to grocery stores in other communities.

Every Tuesday and Saturday from April to October, Dan Zimet and Alan Frank meet up with buddies to play handball at Centennial Park in Ellicott City. The games are friendly competitions among a brotherhood of 25 to 30 men ages 40 to 80, but they're more than that to most of the players. Zimet, a psychologist, and Frank, a lawyer, have a combined 42 national handball titles, and part of their success is attributable to how they push and test themselves in the Howard County park.
