Joe Bartenfelder, a farmer and Baltimore County councilman who is running for county executive, grows hay for his daughter's horses on the bulk of a plot that he leases from Baltimore City — not even a cash crop for this hard-working farm family that shows up every single weekend of the year at Baltimore's local farmers markets. ("City to raise county councilman's rent," May 21.) He may be growing hay, but he's not the one making it. That old expression refers to those who take advantage of favorable circumstances.

The Marble Bar at the Congress Hotel was quietly re-listed again last week. The bar/club, which once hosted the likes of R.E.M. and Iggy Pop, went up for lease in December at an undisclosed price. But it seems no offers materialized. Congress Financial, which bought the hotel last year, retired the bar from the market several months ago, said Henry Deford, the JBL Real estate agent handling the property. The company listed it for lease because, with all 36 units at the once iconic hotel filled, it also wants to revive the bar, Deford said last year.

Alerted by a phone call one recent Sunday, Stephen Pieper drove his black pickup the few miles from his farm in White Hall to Monkton, where he arrived too late to stop a man from plowing under the corn on 95 acres of land he'd leased for decades. Pieper, who leases more than 1,000 acres in Baltimore and Harford counties, said $100,000 worth of corn was destroyed by the farm's new owner — the CEO of Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group. David Smith, who heads the nation's largest independent TV broadcast company, had no choice, his attorney said.
