The Maryland Department of the Environment is set to define areas around quarries where quarry operators will be responsible for loss of well water or damage caused by sinkholes.The department's action follows the refusal by the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal challenging a state law making quarry operators responsible for such damage.Redland Genstar, which operates the Medford limestone quarry, tried to appeal the law last year. It now expects to take an active role as the department begins to outline "zones of dewatering influence."

The water crisis affecting Westminster and much of Carroll County goes beyond the concerns of pumping water from well to tap and could drastically alter growth plans in the county for decades to come, according to local officials and water experts. To brainstorm solutions to water deficits and the new state requirement that a water system meet its demand during the worst droughts on record, officials from Carroll's eight municipalities will gather for a countywide water summit Feb. 3. If the Maryland Department of the Environment continues to enforce water restrictions in those municipalities, that could undermine overall county efforts to contain sprawl, said Jesse Richardson Jr., an expert in water-rights law at Virginia Tech.

Steve Medford has played in the unlimited adult soccer league run by the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks for 22 years, and he figures he's got almost as many years left in him. "My son Tate is 2, and I want to last 16 more years to play with him," Medford said with a laugh. Medford is a restaurant supplies salesman and a manager for his team, named BTFOOM. (The acronym, which refers to being clueless, can't be spelled out in a family newspaper.) It's similar to many others in the league of about 200 people: a group of good friends who love soccer and want to keep playing.
