Fort Meade will pump methane gas from an Anne Arundel County landfill to generate electricity at the growing Army post under a tentative deal announced yesterday, three months after the talks appeared to have collapsed. The terms of the agreement, which a county spokeswoman characterized as in the "verbal preliminary stages," call for Fort Meade to buy the methane gas from the Millersville landfill. The fort and its contractors will foot the bill for the design and construction of a five-mile pipeline and other infrastructure needed for the collection and use of the methane gas. "This is a win-win partnership for all the parties concerned," Col. Kenneth O McCreedy, the post commander, said in a statement.

We want your opinions THE ISSUE: Concerned about high levels of methane gas, the Army has evacuated a dozen families from homes built near a buried landfill at Fort Meade. Col. Kenneth O. McCreedy, the installation commander, has ordered that a cluster of 20 townhouses stay unoccupied as environmental regulators assess the risk. Critics say the move wouldn't have been necessary had the Army post's private housing developer stopped building when it uncovered the site three years ago. Federal and Army regulators say the World War II-era dump may have to be dug up. YOUR VIEW: Have Fort Meade officials responded appropriately to the threat?

The Anne Arundel County school board is scheduled to again discuss whether to expand the district's International Baccalaureate program at its meeting today. At its Sept. 21 meeting, the board debated for more than an hour whether to approve Superintendent Eric J. Smith's proposal to expand the IB program to Meade High School. The program, a rigorous curriculum that is recognized around the world, is offered at Annapolis and Old Mill high schools. School system officials have said that, because of the demand for the program, failure to expand to Meade would mean the district would have to hold a lottery.
