A prominent developer says he has no "present plans" to pursue a large, mixed-use development on land now occupied by the University of Maryland golf course. Brian Gibbons - whose firm, Owings Mills-based Greenberg Gibbons Commercial Corp., developed Annapolis Towne Centre, Hunt Valley Towne Centre and other shopping centers in Maryland and Virginia - had presented Maryland President Wallace Loh with a preliminary plan "to improve transportation connections to the campus and to repurpose some of the university's golf course," according to a July 8 letter obtained by The Baltimore Sun. The plan came under criticism from local elected officials and from a coalition trying to preserve the golf course.

I wrote a story for today's paper on a proposal for a large development on what is now part of the University of Maryland 's golf course. The proposal is just a “concept,” the principals say. As now constituted, it would include a large, mixed-use development (hotel, retail, residences, office) and a direct link to the campus area from the I-95/I-495 interchange. At least some golf course land would be “repurposed.” Obviously, this would be a vast undertaking.

Smidinger knew she had been distancing herself from the rest of the field, but she wanted to stay focused on each shot in the final round. In the end, she could breathe easy by winning the girls title with a two-day total of 143, six shots ahead of Atholton's Bryana Nguyen. Smidinger also become the third Arundel female golfer in the past 11 years to win a state championship.

The wife of retired Orioles second baseman Roberto Alomar has obtained a temporary injunction against him after a domestic dispute over the weekend. Maria Del Pilar Alomar , 33, said in a complaint filed Monday that the couple got into an argument at their Hillsborough County, Fla., home on Sunday. Deputies responded, and the wife told them that she had to push Alomar away when he got several inches from her. No arrests were made. The complaint also described an incident in June, in which Alomar, 42, allegedly yelled at his wife and pushed her. In April, he threatened her with a knife, according to the complaint.

Environmental testing and development I am writing in response to recent reports in The Sun and most of Baltimore's other major media outlets about the arsenic (60 times normal) and lead (240 ppm above normal) contamination found at Turf Valley. It is unforgivable that the developer's July 23 revelations date back to 2005 testing. This is in addition to the mercury, DDT and chlordane that was previously found at Turf Valley during limited testing (13 samples across more than 800 acres)

If somehow you hadn't noticed the gorgeous weather outside, it was impossible to miss it inside. The sun's presence was reflected in the rosy faces of a couple hundred folks as they drifted into the Maryland Golf & Country Club clubhouse in Bel Air. There were loads of sunburns and smiles after a day competing in the Casey Cares Foundation's third annual golf tournament, even on the faces of those who hadn't done particularly well on the greens. "At some point, you say, 'Well, the weather is good,'" said Comcast sportscaster and event master of ceremonies Brent Harris, after reporting his dismal day's performance to tournament co-chairs Justin Polun and Beth Wieczorek.
