With lines of commuters already crawling along Howard County's major highways each weekday, motorists can only imagine how much worse traffic will get with the arrival of thousands of more people by 2011 as part of BRAC, the federal base closing and realignment process. But a new report from Howard's BRAC task force concludes that the county is better prepared than first thought to absorb the influx from what the task force called "the biggest single component of regional growth for the foreseeable future."

Col. Kent D. Menser, the garrison commander of Fort George G. Meade who has been changing the base from a training ground for soldiers to a "federal office park," confirmed last night that he has been asked to retire.The 49-year-old garrison commander may be falling victim to the same military downsizing that triggered changes at Fort Meade. He has been transforming a base once used to prepare soldiers for war into one that functions primarily as an administrative post.Fort Meade officials have declined to comment for the past several weeks on Colonel Menser's future, stressing that a decision is not yet final.

The federal Base Realignment and Closing process could bring Howard County $31 million in added tax revenues, 2,259 jobs and 1,853 more residents over a period of five to seven years, Kent Menser, executive director of the county's BRAC task force, told county Spending Affordability Committee members yesterday. But although the federal government is willing to pay for studies of the expected impact on schools, roads and housing in Maryland localities, it isn't yet known whether federal money will help ease any of those effects, Menser said.

Toulson Correctional Boot Camp from Jessup to Fort Meade, the post's garrison commander has promised to hold a public hearing before submitting a recommendation supporting the plan to the Army.Col. Kent D. Menser said in an interview Friday that he will make his recommendation before retiring at the end of the month, but will not propose moving the camp until hearing from neighborhood residents.

Pentagon officials certainly have a strange way of thanking people who do a good job.First, they hand Col. Kent D. Menser a $125,000 award for Fort George G. Meade for making it the most improved Army base in the continental United States. Then, they tell him to hit the road.Makes wonderful sense, doesn't it? "You've done a great job, Colonel Menser. Love that idea of yours to turn Fort Meade into a federal office park/college campus/research center. But you can't stay to finish any of it. Hasta la vista, baby."

U.S. Army Col. Kent D. Menser obviously wasn't paying attention when Anne Arundel County Executive Robert R. Neall got burned for trying to build a jail in Glen Burnie without telling anybody. Otherwise, he wouldn't have waited so long to tell Odenton residents that the state-run Herman L. Toulson Correctional Boot Camp may soon be moving to Fort George G. Meade.Colonel Menser, whom the Army has ordered to retire June 30, has done a great job of reaching out to the Odenton community. That is why civic leaders were so surprised that the boot camp proposal -- a mere idea when last they heard of it -- has moved far enough along that a specific site has been identified: across Route 175 from the Seven Oaks community.

Robert G. Morris III glanced at his wife, Patti, who simply shrugged her shoulders.His spokesman, Julius Simms, said, "Come on, I'll explain it to you later."The boot camp issue would dog Colonel Morris for the next three months.

Although Howard County will face limited impact from the Pentagon's military base realignment, local government is moving to make sure the county is prepared for what some economists forecast would be the biggest defense-related beef-up in the region since World War II. About 1,000 new homes are expected to be built in Howard County in the next decade because of the Pentagon's base re-shuffling, according to a draft Towson University study that predicts...

You know what I like best about driving around the "new" Fort Meade? The signs.They're composed of actual words -- "Public Affairs," "Museum," "Housing Office."Don't laugh. Signs that make sense to ordinary civilians are a rare and endangered species at Army installations. I used to hate covering Aberdeen Proving Ground because I needed a full-time translator to help me wade through the alphabet soup the military seems to love so much.I still remember the first time I drove onto the Aberdeen post and asked for directions.
