The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Service recently certified a new freshwater-division white perch record and an Atlantic division cobia record. On Sept. 5, James Stiars of Baldwin caught a 1.7-pound white perch in Loch Raven Reservoir, breaking the previous record of 1.62 pounds set by John Williams in 2008, also in Loch Raven. "It was my first cast of the day," Stiars told the DNR. "I was using a Shad Rat crank-bait, and I thought I had a largemouth bass on the line.

Bob Cwalina of Towson asks: Why is it that fishing enthusiasts have not been allowed to park on the many available spots along the eastern side of Dulaney Valley Road at Loch Raven Reservoir? The only place you can park and hike back to the water is one spot just below the Dulaney Valley bridge. But, now all the "No Parking" signs have been removed strictly for the convenience of deer hunters. If the previous denial of parking was for auto safety, then, obviously, there are now no such concerns.

Timonium resident and poet Ann Kolakowski says that what she discovered when her grandmother turned 99 has haunted her to this day. Now, nearly 12 years later, she has published a book of poetry about that discovery. "When my brothers and I were clearing out our grandmother's home when she moved to an assisted living facility," said Kolakowski, "I found a shabby notebook. I opened it and read, 'Marian Brown, Domestic Science/Warren School, Maryland.' I was really confused. " In fact, the town in which her grandmother, Florence Marian Brown Eichler, had spent her childhood and attended Warren School had been bought, razed and flooded in 1921 to create a municipal water supply.

When it comes to allowing mountain bikers to ride the narrow trails around Loch Raven reservoir, Baltimore officials have waged a two-year campaign of sticking their fingers in their ears to avoid the voice of compromise. Let's be clear: Their concern for maintaining the watershed's integrity is admirable given that the reservoir is part of a drinking water supply that serves 1.8 million customers. Loch Raven is not a park. But these officials act as if they alone possess the wisdom to protect the watershed.

Baltimore County police are investigating a shooting Sunday afternoon near the Loch Raven Reservoir in Cockeysville, where windows on several vehicles were shot at by a BB gun as the drivers slowed to navigate a bend in the road, said Baltimore County Police spokesmen. At least two vehicles were struck as they drove near the Warren Road Bridge, Cpl. George Erhardt said Sunday, and one man in his 20s was taken to a medical center for treatment after glass flew into his eyes. The shooter, who used some kind of pellet gun, struck another person in the leg, though it didn't cause injury, Erhardt said.

It's a problem that's not older than dirt. It is dirt. Specifically, how you divvy up public dirt among all the folks who rely on it and like to play in it. Such is the case at Loch Raven Reservoir just north of the Baltimore Beltway, where competing interests are clashing. On the one hand, you have public officials charged with protecting the water supply for 1.8 million customers. On the other hand, you have thousands of outdoors lovers who revel in the recreational opportunities afforded by its 50 miles of shoreline and thousands of surrounding acres.

Dozens of local running enthusiasts greeted the new year bright and early on Jan. 1 by taking part in the Father Time Frolic, a 5-mile road race run that's held annually in the Loch Raven area beginning at 9 a.m. on New Year's Day. Hosted by the Baltimore Road Runners Club, the race winds its way around Loch Raven Reservoir Peerce's Landing on Dulaney Valley Road, to Providence Road, and back. The race is a "predicted time race" - meaning participants are not allowed to wear watches, and winners are determined by those closest to their predicted time.

A new bridge soon will span the Loch Raven Reservoir at Paper Mill Road, giving drivers a safer commute through Hunt Valley, but leaving Baltimore County officials stumped over what to do with the 78-year-old bridge it will replace. Baltimore City owns the old bridge -- part of the reservoir watershed -- and will give it to the county when the new span opens in May. There were plans to dedicate the old structure to a recreational use, making it part of a hiking or biking trail, or even using it as a fishing pier.

Environmental activists warn that construction of a 21-mile natural gas pipeline through northern Baltimore and Harford counties could affect the region's drinking-water system, as the $180 million project cuts across more than three dozen streams feeding into Loch Raven Reservoir. Theaux Le Gardeur, executive director of the Gunpowder Riverkeeper, has petitioned the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to reconsider its approval of the pipeline last month and order a more detailed review of the project's environmental effects.

In the latest response to the impact that months of dry weather have had on water supplies, Harford County will change the source of its water supply this week from Loch Raven Reservoir to the Susquehanna River. Residents should not notice any change in the quality or taste of their water but might see a slight increase in their quarterly bills, county officials said. Starting Tuesday, water will be diverted from the river through pumps at Deer Creek for the first time in almost six years.
