From the road that leads to North Point State Park, a.k.a. Black Marsh, the smokestacks of Bethlehem Steel belch grayish gas into the sky. It is a metaphor for the conflict raging over one of the last pristine pieces of land on the Chesapeake Bay. Black Marsh is an intricate mosaic of marshes, woodlands, hiking and biking trials -- home to a wondrous diversity of plants, animals and birds. Quiet. Peaceful. Unspoiled. So why would anyone want to roll bulldozers over 20 acres of this land, drive in piles and pour cement to build a 350-seat amphitheater, an eatery, 50 boat-tie ups and a huge parking lot?

The nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization has listed U.S. Rep. Andy Harris -- a Baltimore County Republican -- among the nation's "most anti-equality members of Congress. " The Human Rights Campaign said Tuesday that Harris made its new "Hall of Shame" list of 19 legislators nationwide for having "gone out of his way to sponsor nearly every anti-LGBT bill introduced in the House" since he arrived there in 2010. The list, which also includes high-profile legislators such as Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)

The Maryland legislature will debate whether rockfish, or striped bass, should be protected from commercial fishing.Ninety percent of the 833 Evening Sun readers and other callers yesterday to SUNDIAL thought that rockfish should be protected from commercial fishing. Ten percent, or 83 callers thought that rockfish should not be protected."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

In the wake of President Barack Obama's declaration of war on ISIS and the fact that several dozen ISIS members with American citizenship are believed to have already re-entered the country, along with the near simultaneous multiple failures of the Secret Service to properly protect Mr. Obama, I believe it is time to do with the White House what was done during World War II. During that era the roof of the White House was protected by both sandbagged machine...

The protected lists that were revealed yesterday for next week's National League expansion draft provided a few surprises involving former Orioles.The Cleveland Indians had only four pitchers on their 15-man list -- the fewest of the 26 existing teams -- but one of them was Jose Mesa. He was traded to the Indians last July, when the Orioles finally gave up on him.Shortstop Juan Bell, who failed to impress after being the principal figure in the Eddie Murray trade four years ago, was one of seven infielders protected by the Philadelphia Phillies.

IT'S HUMAN nature to be interested in "the next big thing." But when a new type of mutual funds becomes the industry's hottest, investors should live by the rule of "look, but don't touch." For proof, look no further than today's darling, the "principal-protected" fund. These hybrid funds are capitalizing on investors' fears every bit as much as Internet funds appealed to avarice back in 1999. While much of the fund industry has been shrinking, principal-protected funds have nearly tripled in assets - growing to well over $1 billion - in the past 16 months, according to data from Lipper Inc. As with most investment trends, principal-protected funds sound terrific, right up to the point where you deconstruct them.

MARYLAND IS ONE of only six states without land in the National Wilderness Preservation System, a reflection of this state's long history of settlement and development, and its modest size.But Maryland has wildlands, nurturing significant environmental communities that remain relatively undisturbed. The state created a system to protect these endangered parcels of state land in 1971, with 11 areas now encompassing nearly 15,000 acres.Gov. Parris N. Glendening plans to add about 23,000 acres and 17 sites to the state list of wildlands protected from intrusion by vehicles and extractive industries.

In one of his few environmental initiatives this year, Gov. Parris N. Glendening announced yesterday he will seek legislation that would more than double the amount of legally protected wilderness in Maryland.The move, if approved by the General Assembly, would designate 17 sites totaling 22,790 acres in state parks and forests as "wildlands," where logging, mining and driving would be prohibited.From prime trout streams in Western Maryland to cypress swamp on the Eastern Shore, the proposed sites are rich in rare plants and animals and represent some of the best remaining examples of Maryland's natural history.

Who will protect us from our own county? Can anything be spared from large-scale development in Howard County? If you are a 280-year-old mansion in the middle of a state park would you be spared? If you are protected by easements placed by the Smithsonian Institution in consideration for the "gift to the nation" Ambassador Bruce gave when he sold the land to the federal government would you be spared? If your development required the county to spend $1 million it did not have to build a road through the state park to reach your development, would you be protected?

Secret Service director Julia A. Pierson did herself no favors this week when she appeared before a House subcommittee to explain why her agency so badly bungled the job of protecting the president. There's no excuse for the repeated lapses in security that put the president's life at risk, nor for the agency's attempts to hide the seriousness of the incidents afterward. Ms. Pierson finally acknowledged that today when she submitted her resignation as head of the agency. In the days leading up to her departure, Ms. Pierson had promised a thorough internal investigation of the matter, but that's not good enough.

With Towson featuring nine new starters on offense and five on defense, many expected this year's team to be a much different group from last season's squad that advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision title game. That difference is especially stark when considering how the 2014 Tigers have struggled to finish off opponents. While last year's team won 11 of 12 games in which it had the lead or the score was tied after three quarters, the current squad has lost two of three games in which it had the advantage or the score was tied heading into the final period.

A diverse coalition of business groups, unions and transit advocates is urging Maryland voters to put a constitutional "lockbox" on state transportation funds, making it harder for governors and lawmakers to divert the money to other purposes. Andrew Feldman, a spokesman for the coalition, said more than a dozen groups will contribute money to back Question 1 on the Nov. 4 ballot, which would for the first time give transportation funding explicit protection in the state Constitution.

A Baltimore judge this week ruled to allow city prosecutors to withhold identifying witness information from defendants in the sweeping case against alleged members of the Black Guerrilla Family gang. Judge Sylvester B. Cox on Tuesday granted a protective order, requested by the state's attorney's office, on any materials that could expose witnesses to harm or intimidation, after hearing a detective describe the fears witnesses had about cooperating with the investigation. Forty-eight suspects accused of being members of the BGF gang, which operated a violent, widespread drug trade in the city and corrupted the Baltimore City Detention Center, were indicted last November.

I wish to address the recent events in which young children are being hurt by family violence, whether directly as victims or indirectly as witnesses. I believe that Ray and Janay Rice love their child and want what is best for her. We don't know for sure whether Ray Rice's assault of Janay was the first incident or not so we don't know whether Rayven witnessed his violence but certainly there is that possibility. I believe that Adrian Peterson loves his child and wants what is best for him. We can choose to call what Mr. Peterson did to his son "discipline," but, according to the report, he hit him with a switch, leaving bruises and cuts ( "NFL now must tackle child abuse," Sept.

Maintaining an environmentally friendly landscape at her family's home in Long Reach comes as second nature to Janine Pollack, who loves gardening and the outdoors. The pluses, some obvious and some not, are numerous. They include the inherent adaptability of native plants to the area's climate as well as their ability to attract insects, which attract birds, which attract wildlife. But the primary ecological benefit - which goes undetected by most visitors surveying the natural beauty of Pollack's outdoor canvas - is the ability of strategically placed landscaping to prevent polluted stormwater runoff from spoiling waterways and eventually fouling the Chesapeake Bay. Such benefits, and the principles behind them, will explained to visitors Sept.

From the somber, low-key tone of last night's hearing before the Baltimore County Human Relations Commission, it was hard to believe it had anything to do with a topic as controversial as sexual preference.But the issue in the 90-minute hearing at Randallstown Senior High School was whether gay men and lesbians should be protected along with blacks and other minorities from discrimination.The commission chairman, Joseph Matricciani, said the meeting was a fact-finding session to help the group decide whether to recommend to the County Council any changes in codes outlawing discrimination.

The furor over former Raven Ray Rice thrust the issue of domestic violence into the spotlight, but it also highlighted a part of football that fans likely spend little time thinking about: the league's security apparatus. Staffed largely by former police and federal law enforcement personnel — often high-ranking ones — the security departments maintained by the league and individual teams have a reputation of being able to work their contacts and launch behind-the-scenes investigations at the first sign of trouble.

Looking to protect Marylanders from unsafe levels of smog, environmental regulators are moving to clamp down on pollution from the state's smaller coal-burning power plants, but plant owners warn that the rule could have economic consequences. The Maryland Department of the Environment recently unveiled a draft rule two years in the planning that would require coal-burning plants in the Baltimore and Washington areas to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides by 48 percent over the next four years.
