A plan aimed at fixing a large number of failing household septic systems on Kent Island is stirring debate, as Queen Anne's County looks to permit roughly 600 new homes on the low-lying gateway to the Eastern Shore while hooking existing homes up to its sewer system. County officials say the $53 million state-financed sewer project, made possible by legislation passed this year, would resolve a long-standing public health and environmental problem while limiting how much new development can take place in an area virtually surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay. But opponents say the project flies in the face of Maryland's Smart Growth policies and rewards real estate speculators who've been sitting on unbuildable housing lots there for years.

When Kent Mosmiller, 62, of Perry Hall takes to the greens early Thanksgiving morning at Clifton Park Golf Course, it will be the start to a tradition that dates back 18years.

Organizers of a charity race on the Bay Bridge next year have eliminated the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as a potential partner because the group opposes a proposed waterfront housing development on Kent Island. Sparrow Rogers of Chesapeake Bay Run LLC said last week that run organizers had withdrawn an invitation to the foundation to help stage the 10-kilometer run next November because people "at high levels in Queen Anne's County" said they would be upset if the environmental advocacy group were allowed to participate.

A developer's request for permits to build a bitterly disputed waterfront housing project on Kent Island has been put on hold after state officials discovered a "business relationship" between a high-ranking Maryland environmental official and a lawyer for the development team. In a written statement, the state Board of Public Works said Friday that it would delay action on the Four Seasons project pending a review of the relationship between the lawyer and the board's longtime wetlands administrator, Doldon W. Moore Jr. "The Board of Public Works recently became aware of a business relationship between the wetlands administrator and an attorney representing the applicant for the tidal wetlands license that is referred to as Four Seasons at Kent Island," it said.

WASHINGTON --Whether it is history or nostalgia, or both, news feeds on anniversaries. Last week it was the fall of Saigon 25 years ago. This week it will be the killings at Kent State University in Ohio 30 years ago on May 4, 1970 -- and in my mind that is a far more important event to remember and study. The first mentions of Kent State that I have seen in this wave of anniversary journalism have treated the "incident" as a tragedy, but it was more than that; it was almost a flashpoint in American history, something like John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry.

Kent County's Brendon Ireton was named the Ravens High School Coach of the Week Wednesday after the Trojans' 40-7 win at Washington Friday put them on the verge of their first winning season in 16 years. The Trojans improved to 5-3 with the victory, led by running back Marcquan Greene's two touchdowns. In fourth place in Class 1A East with two games left in the regular season, the Trojans are aiming for their first playoff berth since 1996. They won the last of back-to-back Class 1A state championships in 1990.

The Four Seasons at Kent Island may be viewed as many things, but surely one of them is a reality check for all the complaints of state government usurping control over land use decisions from local government (not mention all the harping on Maryland as an anti-growth state or a developer's worst nightmare). On Wednesday, the state Board of Public Works will once again take up the topic of the Four Seasons, a project that in 2007 came to symbolize the lack of teeth in Maryland's efforts to protect the Chesapeake Bay from excess development in the "critical" areas near the bay and its tidal tributaries.
