Government is often said to move slowly, but it does move, as many of those involved in planning a new 51-acre park and a 63,000-square-foot community center in North Laurel can attest. Bulldozers should be appearing within the next few weeks in what are now woods and grass between the rear of Laurel Woods Elementary School and Whiskey Bottom Road, and the $25.2 million combined facility is to open in October 2010 - after a mere two decades of effort for what most acknowledge is an old, settled area without enough public amenities.

Shane. Shane. Shane.Depending on whom you're speaking with, it's a name that spells trouble. The governor has screaming matches with her. Her colleagues on the Howard County Council talk miserably about her behind her back. Even her constituents gave her a so-so nod of affirmation during the last local election.Shane Pendergrass, in her second term as a Howard council member, is sometimes difficult, often unyielding and steadfastly ideological.She proved all of that recently when she virtually hijacked Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. and the county administration in the 11th hour of negotiations over Coke's proposed construction of a regional headquarters and bottling plant in the county.

The Howard County Council tentatively approved only 10 percent of County Executive Charles I. Ecker's proposed $76 million capital budget at a work session yesterday, but even that was a little too rich for Chairwoman Shane Pendergrass.Ms. Pendergrass, a 1st District Democrat, wanted to pre-empt Mr. Ecker by cutting 10 percent from all construction projects that have not yet been put out to bid. She was only partially successful.Mr. Ecker had said Wednesday that he planned to send the council an amended capital budget proposal early next week that would reduce construction projects that have not yet been bid by up to 10 percent.

Shane Pendergrass, a two-term County Council member, comes into a crowded House of Delegates race carrying perhaps more name recognition than the rest of the field combined. But she's also carrying a more visible target -- her record.Ms. Pendergrass, a Democrat, says her record of the past eight years -- during which the council handled everything from growth control to comprehensive rezoning to school construction to severely restricted budgets -- could be a "plus and a minus" in her bid for one of two District 13A seats.

A man who was suffocated and found floating in the Patapsco River this week had been abducted and held for ransom and is believed to be connected to a violent drug gang whose feuding with rivals may have been responsible for at least five homicides last summer, according to law enforcement sources and court records. Authorities are monitoring the situation and exploring leads as it remains unclear whether the killing of Eric Pendergrass, 26, is an isolated incident or related to the spate of retaliatory violence associated with the April kidnapping of the teenage brothers Stephon and Sterling Blackwell.

When Barack Obama is inaugurated this month, his transition team will present him with suggestions on reforming health care from thousands of people across the country, including more than 200 who convened recently in Columbia. The campaign organization the president-elect built is still at work, using vast e-mail lists to mobilize people who want to take part in transforming vital programs like health care by braving a cold holiday weeknight to put their thoughts down on paper. "How refreshing is it that a campaign that is successful wants to listen to its supporters' ideas?"

The late Robert H. Kittleman, a Howard County Republican who served for more than two decades in the Maryland General Assembly, always said the surest way to elective success is to knock on 10,000 doors and impress voters within the first 30 seconds that you are intelligent enough to do the job and affable enough to be approachable. Democrat Shane Pendergrass has spent 22 years in elective office, the past 14 as a member of the House of Delegates, yet she doesn't like knocking on doors, and doesn't do much of it, though she doesn't dispute the Kittleman credo.

When three-term Del. Frank S. Turner knocked on their door, retirees Irene and Jim MacDonald agreed to put a Guzzone-Pendergrass-Turner campaign sign on the lawn of their 33-year home in Columbia. They did the same thing when Del. Neil F. Quinter showed up with his sign. The MacDonalds, who live on the high-traffic corner of Tamar Drive and Old Montgomery Road, are one of a handful of families with lawn signs advertising four candidates for the three available Democratic nominations to the Maryland House of Delegates from Howard County's District 13. The popularity of the four elected officials is creating a problem for about 11,000 Democrats likely to vote in the Sept.

THREE-TERM Howard County Del. Shane E. Pendergrass said she found a quick cure for her chronic stomach ache - deciding not to run for the Democratic nomination for a seat in the U.S. Congress. "I figured I would know in my gut what to do, and after having a stomach ache for two weeks, it went away instantly. I kept not listening," Pendergrass said about her decision-making process. Pendergrass, along with fellow District 13 Democrat Del. Neil F. Quinter, had been considering a run for the 3rd District congressional seat now held by U.S. Rep. Benjamin L.

Changing the rules in Columbia is not impossible; it just seems that way. Every property owner in town has to agree in order to change the covenant, the document that governs the Columbia Association. Most local officials want to change the way things are done, but they cannot agree on how to go about it. State Del. Shane E. Pendergrass has written legislation to change that requirement, but the Columbia Association board voted, 5-3, Thursday to oppose it. "It's still my plan to introduce it," she said, noting that the state legislature had passed another bill without the support of Columbia Association.
