Errors and stranded runners have plagued the Columbia Reds periodically this summer, and last night at Randallstown High School, those two problems returned to haunt the Reds once more.The Reds committed three miscues, including a costly mistake in the fourth inning, and left nine runners on base, as Liberty Road twice rallied from deficits to pull away to a 9-6 victory in Baltimore Metro Baseball League 17-18 action.The loss left the Reds (8-10) in third place in the eight-team Senior Division, well behind the second-place Liberty Road squad (15-7)

WHEN motorists drive through the Randallstown commercial corridor two things stand out: Signs of every color, height and dimension cluttering the roadside and the large number of spaces sitting vacant in shopping centers and strip malls. What may not be obvious is that the large two- and three-story apartment complexes also have vacancies. A quarter of the Village of Huntington, a sprawling 589-unit complex, sits empty. This shabby commercial area is an anchor dragging down otherwise healthy single-family residential communities of substantial stone and brick homes that sit a block or two away from the retail corridor.

Mary and Bob Siegel wanted a house that would catch people's eye, and the California contemporary they bought in Holbrook in February 1996 does just that.Their additions to the home -- a mahogany deck and an 18-foot-long stone outdoor waterfall and landscaping around both -- have made it even more eye-catching.Even though the home is a block or so from busy Liberty Road near Randallstown, the waterfall in the yard and another in the skylighted family room transport a visitor to a waterfront scene.

A seven-car accident injured four people yesterday in the same stretch of Liberty Road that has been the scene of three fatalities since July, prompting another call for more police officers to enforce the speed limit. At the same time, members of the Liberty Road Safety Initiative and community organizations are gearing up for a memorial march and rally tomorrow to remember the three people killed recently on a stretch of the state highway west of the Baltimore Beltway. Yesterday's accident occurred when one car ran into the back of another near Washington Avenue and caused a chain-reaction collision, Baltimore County police said.

Baltimore County police are searching for the driver of a yellow car who sped from the scene of a fatal accident on Liberty Road on Wednesday night after what appeared to be aggressive driving along the busy four-lane road in Milford Mill. A woman riding in the back seat of a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero was killed as the sport utility vehicle was trying to turn left from the 8000 block of Liberty Road into the parking lot of Sea Pride Crab House 2 and one of two speeding cars hit it, police said.

Yesterday morning, Michael Chapman left two red and white floral arrangements on the lawn of the Farmers Bank in Randallstown as an expression of sympathy for the two tellers killed during Monday's robbery.But the sign outside Chapman Garden less than a mile down the road is a message of anger and revenge: "Capital Punishment for the Murderers.""That sign is like a scream from the highest mountain for Mike," said Millie Restivo, greenhouse manager at the garden center. "He is so soft spoken and quiet . . . I guess it's Mike's way of fighting back."
