LONDON -- The Kingwood pulls out of Westminster Pier, as jaunty as the Queen Elizabeth II leaving for New York.But the Kingwood is no queen, only a dowager riverboat heading for Kew Gardens with a cargo of tourists and nostalgia.When the Kingwood first made this trip nearly 70 years ago, London was the "biggest and greatest city in the world," in the words of that great novelist of the sea, Joseph Conrad.The River Thames was "crowded with memories of men and ships it had carried to the rest of home or to the battles of the sea."

State environmental officials have given the go-ahead for a developer to fill in part of a stream to build a 36-home subdivision in Linthicum, a project opposed by area residents worried about flooding and erosion.Nearby homeowners blame storm-water runoff from surrounding developments for soggy lawns and flooded basements.They argue that the proposed Andover Estates project -- on a steep, narrow piece of land between Kingwood and Kingbrook roads -- would make their problems worse."I can't understand why anyone would even think of approving it," said Georgianna Fletcher, 75, who has lived in her Hammonds Ferry Road home since 1952.
