NEW MARKET - It was to be a mammoth planned community with a population the size of Annapolis'. But 34 years after its conception, Lake Linganore at Eaglehead is more like Atlantis: It exists more in imagination than reality. Like the mythical lost city, the Frederick County community is an outsized utopian dream: 3,700 rolling acres surrounding a man-made, 216-acre lake. It's close enough to Baltimore and Washington to appeal to thousands willing to commute for an hour to live near nature's charms: lakes, trails, foliage, honking geese.

The Frederick County sheriff's office identified three family members who were shot to death in an apparent murder-suicide Wednesday night in New Market but said they would wait until speaking with relatives before releasing more information. Benyam Asefa, 40; Barbara Giomarelli, 42; and Samuel Asefa, 3 months, were killed in the shooting in the 6800 block of Woods Court, deputies said. A 5-year-old girl escaped the home unharmed and ran to a neighbor's house, where a neighbor called 911. Deputies found a handgun at the scene.

Frederick County authorities say a man's body has been recovered from a dam spillway at Lake Linganore near Frederick. Frederick County Sheriff's Capt.

LINGANORE -- While hanging Christmas lights on his deck the other day, Nick Hylton turned and caught a glimpse of the beach across from his contemporary, two-story home on Lake Linganore. Where he usually sees an empty, sandy stretch, he saw black. Lots of black.The vultures were back.About 200 turkey vultures (and probably some cousins) on this particular morning. Thigh-high. Some stretching 6-foot-wide wings.Standing.Silent.All staring with those penetrating eyes protruding from blood-red, bald, crinkly-skinned heads similar to those of turkeys.

Nature is fighting back. At least, large animals are. Humans have gobbled so much habitat in North America that species formerly driven away are learning to adapt and are re-invading human domain. Many people who worship nature in the abstract find it discomfiting on close examination.This is much more than the raccoons flourishing in Baltimore City storm drains and red foxes in wooded parks. And the deer invading suburbia to the horror of gardeners. And the bear that traversed Baltimore County on a bee line for the Inner Harbor until barred by the Beltway.

RELIGIOUS clashes seem to be popping up in the strangest places these days. In fact, they are seeping more and more often into disputes that have little or nothing at all to do with differences of faith.Frederick County resident Joanne Caldwell has decorated rocks in her Lake Linganore yard with religious symbols and expressions. The community association wrote her up for violating neighborhood covenants against "noxious and offensive things."Ms. Caldwell says this rule impinges on her religious freedom.
