A 35-year-old Middle River man pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to sexually abusing minors and producing child pornography between February and August of last year. His fiancée is scheduled for trial on similar charges in December. Investigators found more than 600 images of pornography "involving prepubescent children and sadomasochistic conduct" after raiding the home of John Fred Nicklas IV and Shannon Leigh Honea last year on the 9700 block of Conmar Road, according to court records and the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office.

The existence of eastern Baltimore County's waterfront neighborhoods, dotted with an ever-growing number of summer cottages and year-round homes, came as a surprise to Frank and Nancy Lanzi. Neither of them even knew about the narrow Wilson Point peninsula jutting out into the Middle River. Now, almost 10 years after that introduction, the couple enjoys life on the river in their new custom-built bungalow, unable to imagine life anywhere else. "We call our house an unexpected blessing because we actually were not looking for a dream house," said Nancy Lanzi, a 56-year-old mother of three grown children and a middle school math teacher.

The distress call over marine band radio channel 16 was alarming: A male voice reported calmly that his 28-foot Sea Ray power boat "Susie Q," with three children on board, had lost power and was taking on water somewhere on Middle River. That triggered an eight-hour search Saturday that involved three helicopters, at least six boats and additional shore units from multiple agencies. But no trace of a sinking boat or its occupants has been found. Nor were there any reports of missing persons or overdue boats that Coast Guard or Baltimore County Police investigators could link to the distress call.

Baltimore County planners want to allow hundreds of houses on waterfront conservation land along the Bird River in Middle River, over the strong objections of environmental regulators. Some county officials say a proposal for up to 400 homes where only three are now allowed would defeat the purpose of multimillion-dollar public investments in natural resource protection and would represent an unprecedented expansion into an area where the county has restricted growth since 1967. Joseph Stamato, owner of Verus Development LLC, the company that wants to develop the site, said "we're protecting the land" by using only about half of the 292 acres of woods and fields.
