There will be no more wedding receptions, birthday dinners or high school reunions at Snyder's Willow Grove. For 77 years, the Linthicum Heights restaurant and banquet hall hosted countless family and community celebrations and special dinners. But storms at the end of April forced the Patapsco River over its banks, depositing a foot of water and mud in the Snyder's dining rooms. For Mother's Day, co-owner Vernon Snyder was preparing to serve 1,200 customers, a healthy crowd on one of the restaurant's busiest days of the year.

A Linthicum Heights woman didn't just get stuck with doing a weekend home improvement project - she got stuck in it. Anne Arundel fire officials said the woman had to call for help after apparently losing her balance and falling into the tile glue she had spread while installing linoleum in her kitchen Sunday evening. A team of paramedics arrived to find the woman stuck to a chair, in a cross-legged position and wearing undergarments, with a cordless phone glued to her hand, said Battalion Chief John M. Scholz, a fire department spokesman.

IN 1981, I joined the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights. As I walked down the sidewalk to the clubhouse on Hammonds Ferry Road that first meeting, I was impressed by the two attractive seasonal decorations on the doors. What a nice greeting they were. Since then, I have looked forward each month to seeing the different wreaths, swags or baskets that welcome arriving members. The beautiful ornaments are faithfully designed and hung by member Marie Meredith. "I guess the door decorations and the club's Holly Mart workshops are my claim to fame," Meredith said as she talked about her involvement in the club and other organizations in the community.

Ronan, an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois, bolted from his owner's grasp and charged across the open field toward a guy waving a stick and screaming, "Get that dog out of here." The dog lunged toward the man, bit into his arm and held on. "Good grip," said a man with a clipboard. As a judge for the Protection Sports Association, he made note of it as part of the dog's ability to take commands from his owner, ignore all distractions and hang on to a "decoy," a person outfitted in a thickly padded bite suit.

Tucked amid the bustle of highways, trains and BWI Marshall Airport lies Linthicum, a hamlet first developed as a "country suburb" and about to mark its centennial in 2008. The descendants of Abner Linthicum wouldn't recognize the place they marketed as minutes from Baltimore. Over a century, houses of varying age and size have been built, and their occupants are planning festivities to mark Linthicum's 100th year. "I can get downtown to Baltimore in minutes. It's not as congested in this village as other places I've lived," said John Lombardi, a semi-retired insurance executive.
