The Howard County Planning Board has voted against funding the purchase of land to build a road that would serve a proposed mixed-use development in Clarksville, a potential setback for the county-backed project, which has struggled to secure highway access. About 150 people, including landowners in the area surrounding the former Gateway School site, showed up to a Thursday hearing in support of Kendall Hardware, which has been a vocal critic of a plan that county officials believe can breathe life into the stalled Clarksville Commons development on the county-owned land.

Maturity used to be viewed as a prerequisite for elective office. Although present-day examples of political immaturity abound, local, close-at-hand examples can still be grating. Specifically, in the case of the negotiations between the Kendall family and the Ulman administration over the purchase of an easement to enable a county-sponsored development in Clarksville, the two parties failed to agree to a price. Steve Kendall's response to this gridlock was to observe, as reported in the Howard County Times , "they just don't like the purchase price," and then to diplomatically decline further comment.

This well-balanced white wine is an imaginative blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Chardonnay, Semillon, Roussanne, Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Muscat Canelli drawn from vineyards around California. It comes to the palate as a very fruity wine, but leaves with a dry impression. It offers vibrant flavors of grapefruit, lime, pear, kiwi, honey and white pepper. It's immediately appealing, but with some complexity too. Drink it while it's young. Wine Find: 2009 Kendall-Jackson Summation From: California Price: $14 Serve with: Salmon, fried chicken

Of all the things the rowhouse on East Oliver Street had been over the course of its lifetime, the most recent was what some locals delicately called a gentlemen's social club. That would explain the huge pedestal bed surrounded by mirrors and bolted to the floor that had to be ripped out as the house was renovated to offer quite different services: The Spiral Dance Womyn's Center & Bookstore. It is an unlikely feminist outpost in an impoverished neighborhood of boarded-up houses and corner drug dealers.

There can never be a whole lot of stability on a short-season Single-A baseball team such as the Aberdeen IronBirds. Even if Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. is the owner. However, the 2008 IronBirds are about as stable as any low-level minor league team can be. They will open the season tonight with nine players who spent either 2007 or both 2006 and 2007 with the IronBirds. There's even returning experience at the manager position and two coaching jobs. Gary Kendall will manage the team, returning to the town where he was a field coach in 2002 and 2003.
