County Council candidate Mary Kay Sigaty, a Democrat running in west Columbia's District 4, got the biggest crowd response last week at a candidates forum in Harper's Choice. The question from education activist Stanley Daniello was: "How can we trust any of you?" It began when UNcommon, a rival Democratic candidate whose name is Jeffrey L. Underwood, responded that he was probably the only Eagle Scout among the four candidates seeking the seat on the all-male County Council. Democrat Josh Feldmark then said he also had been an Eagle Scout, whereupon Sigaty, the only woman on the panel spoke up. "I think I'm the only one up here who couldn't be an Eagle Scout.

An Ellicott City activist has demanded that Howard County government officials launch an investigation into the Patapsco Heritage Greenway Committee's use of public funds. Lee Walker Oxenham, a member of the Sierra Club, says the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks gave the greenway committee $20,000 to produce a feasibility study and master plan for the Patapsco heritage corridor. The group is trying to turn the Patapsco Valley into a certified heritage area. The master plan was produced pro bono by Human and Rohde Inc., documents from the Towson landscape and architecture firm show.

A developer has been forced to delay the expected start of a proposed 11-home project in Ellicott City that has attracted neighborhood opposition -- and, more recently, a bizarre message that caused a county employee to be disciplined.The Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning has ordered developer Ronald Wildman to resubmit a plan detailing trees and other vegetation on 10 acres of environmentally sensitive land he owns on Bonnie Branch Road.The request could force Wildman to wait until this fall to build the development, called Bonnie Branch Overlook.

Lee Walker Oxenham says she has done it all for her 6-year-old son, Ian, who likes to hunt for tadpoles and wants to save the tigers.Oxenham can't do much about tigers. But she is fighting as hard as she can to preserve a 10-acre plot of land near her Ellicott City home, where neighborhood children like to play in the woods and streams and wetlands, and where a developer wants to build homes on part of the acreage.The land is one of the largest undeveloped plots left in Ellicott City and nearby residents, led by Oxenham, are doing their best to keep it that way.Last night at a sometimes heated county Board of Appeals meeting -- the fifth on the proposed development off Bonnie Branch Road -- Oxenham was cross-examined late into the night by the county's lawyer.

All of Lee Walker Oxenham's hard work might come to nothing.For the past several months, Oxenham has devoted much of her time to disputing a proposed 11-home development on 10 acres of land off Bonnie Branch Road near her Ellicott City home.But late Tuesday night, after Oxenham finished being cross-examined before the Howard County Board of Appeals, Paul Johnson, attorney for the county planning and zoning office, moved to dismiss the case. He argued that Oxenham and other citizen activists had not proved that there was "substantial evidence of arbitrariness or capriciousness or error of law" by the county.

A paved bicycle trail paralleling the Patapsco River on the Howard-Baltimore county border will be completed without appeal from environmental activists under an agreement reached yesterday between the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and local environmentalists and activists. The state agency agreed to build no more paved projects within Patapsco Valley State Park over the next 10 years, and the trail's opponents agreed to drop all administrative appeals. Since 1998, a dispute over the 1 1/4 -mile paved trail has pitted environmental activists who feared the effects of runoff and increased traffic against bicyclists who wanted greater access to park resources and developers who sought to improve tourism opportunities.

Greenway project doesn't deserve further support One citizen activists' hard work appears to be paying off, as evidenced by the article "Another setback dealt to greenway project" (May 24). Howard County politicians and bureaucrats are finally acknowledging what Lee Walker Oxenham has been saying all along: There is no community support for the Patapsco Heritage Greenway. Howard County has acknowledged (in Orwellian doublespeak) that tens of thousands of tax dollars have been wasted.
