Making your way across the jetty at Sandy Point State Park is like walking on bowling balls. Wet ones. The rocks have a way of channeling feet this way and that into the nasty spaces between them, a perfect geometric formula for sending a tackle box one way and a rod the other in the best case, or delivering a skinned knee, an ankle sprain or worse. Despite trying conditions, anglers take their chances for access to the Chesapeake Bay to fish in the shadow of the Bay Bridge. Why? They don't have boats, and the state of Maryland, for all of its shoreline, has few places for those folks to wet a line.

A boat crashed into a jetty in Herring Bay near Deale on Thursday afternoon, injuring at least two of four people on board, according to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. About 5:55 p.m., rescue units from both Anne Arundel and Calvert counties - Deale skirts the line between the two - responded to the jetty near Rockhold Creek for reports of a "pleasure boat" having crashed into the jetty, said Lt. Keith Hamilton, a department spokesman. Personnel from Calvert County were the first to arrive, and pulled all four passengers from the crashed boat onto their fire boat before heading to shore, Hamilton said.

PORT DEPOSIT -- This historic Susquehanna River town will take a big step toward becoming a Cecil County tourist attraction tomorrow when it begins advertising for bids on the construction for a long-planned restoration of its waterfront property. Plans call for the development of a waterfront park and marina and reconstruction of a jetty that the Navy built during World War II. Sailors attending boot camp at the Bainbridge Naval Training Center, on a plateau above town, would pack the pier, waiting to clamber into one of the more than 100 whaleboats docked there so they could practice maneuvers up and down the river.

Port Deposit has added a path to walk along the Susquehanna River, a pier for fishing and bird watching, and a spot for launching boats into the waterway to its already scenic amenities. The Cecil County town that traces its founding to the early 19th century will dedicate the $2.3 million Marina Park Riverwalk and Jetty at the south end of Main Street at 10 a.m. Thursday. The project, which has been a decade in the planning, should draw boaters and anglers from the river and motorists traveling along Interstate 95 to the town of 700, officials said.

Residents in Tracy's Landing and Deale are raising questions about a proposed $3.2 million jetty slated for the mouth of Rockhold Creek in southern Anne Arundel County. The county and the Army Corps of Engineers-Baltimore District say building the jetty is necessary to reduce shoaling at the entrance channel and to protect boats docked nearby from storm damage. Residents, however, are worried about possible flooding, environmental damage and losing their waterfront views. At a public meeting last week, about 110 residents, watermen and business people showed up to listen as engineers explained how the jetty project would work.

Maryland reports sixth death from swine flu Maryland health officials reported Thursday a sixth death associated with swine flu. Officials would not release details about the death, except to say it was an adult from the Washington suburbs with an underlying medical condition. As of last Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 436 deaths and 6,506 hospitalizations associated with the virus, known as H1N1. As infections continue to spread widely, the federal agency and state health departments have stopped recording confirmed flu cases that do not result in deaths or hospitalizations.

Crime statistics in story refuted In the interview with Anne Arundel County Police Chief P. Thomas Shanahan on public safety in the county, there are two serious misstatements of fact ("Police, fire chiefs say public is safe despite staff cuts," July 24). The statement that violent crime "has been steadily declining" since 2000 is wrong. According to the county police annual reports, as well as data submitted by the police to the FBI under the Uniform Crime Reporting System, violent crime in Anne Arundel County went up more than 15 percent in 2001, and experienced only a marginal (1.2 percent)
