After sitting dormant for over a year, a new restaurant opening next week at the old Sanders Corner will aim to bring a bit of buzz to the Loch Raven reservoir area. McFaul's Ironhorse Tavern at Sanders Corner will open Friday, June 29. "It's been a great few months getting this together," said co-owner Glenn McFaul, of Towson, to a crowd of county officials and local leaders who gathered for a "soft opening" on Tuesday, June 19. "It's been a lot of work," he said, "but we were able to put together a really good vision here to keep the tradition with Sanders alive.

Police Officer Joe Cunningham patrols a beat unlike any other in city jurisdiction.His territory is larger than two Baltimore police districts combined, and although he is armed and has full arrest powers, his duties bear little resemblance to those of urban officers.Patrolling alone, Officer Cunningham guards the 6,500 acres of the Loch Raven Reservoir watershed, a maze of forested paths and muddy fire trails. He is a 20-year veteran of the Baltimore City Watershed Police, the little-known Department of Public Works force that patrols the city's three sources of drinking water -- the Loch Raven, Prettyboy and Liberty reservoir areas, a total of 17,000 acres in Baltimore and Carroll counties.

The recent article about rules and regulations at Loch Raven Reservoir ("Think before you leap," June 25) was very informative and was an important reminder for citizens using the reservoir. The public needs to abide by the rules in order to preserve our drinking water and for safety reasons, too. Bikers, hikers, nature photographers, birdwatchers and any other groups or individuals need to work together to support the laws put into place so that we can enjoy our beautiful Loch Raven in a respectful manner.

To hunt or not to hunt is no longer a question. The overabundant deer population in the forests around Loch Raven Reservoir will be culled by hunters for the first time this fall and winter, state and local officials said at a public meeting on the much-debated issue last night at Loch Raven High School. About 225 people filled the school auditorium to hear officials outline the new hunting policy, which animal rights activists have successfully blocked for years. The deer inhabit an area that can't support the current population, said Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for the Baltimore Department of Public Works.

Visionary engineers, tough local development regulations -- and a stroke of luck -- might have spared Loch Raven Reservoir from filling in with sediment these last 75 years, extending the life of the water supply and saving taxpayers from costly dredging.Officials with the Maryland Geological Survey, working with federal and local agencies on the most comprehensive study of area reservoirs, found the capacity of Loch Raven has not significantly diminished since 1923 -- contrary to the fears of environmentalists.
