Three-hundred and thirty-something-year-old Baltimore County is suffering an identity crisis.The suburb is no longer the stuff of Barry Levinson's "Avalon," or home to Ward and the Beaver. You can sense the transformation in the debate over a changing school system, in the heightened fear over crime. There's concern about the aesthetics of a growing county seat, about threats to rural zoning, about the continued loss of job security in the industrial east, about the urbanization that has spawned political redistricting in the west and about the fast-growing retiree population.

The roadside root beer stand's orange contours memorialize this venerated shrine to a different era. Its fans make pilgrimages to this Stewart's franchise on Pulaski Highway, a truck-battered stretch of U.S. 40 in eastern Baltimore County, to recall the food experiences of their youth. This is the place where it seemed a little cooler in the days before broiling city neighborhoods such as Highlandtown or Canton had air conditioning. Suburban Rosedale was the summer destination when the sun was bright, the humidity was high and school was a distant notion.

But here is the City Council -- just two years later -- again pondering the explosive question.The reason is a proposal by the aging Pulaski incinerator's owner, Willard Hackerman. He wants to replace the East Baltimore facility's five polluting furnaces with a new $300 million waste-to-energy plant at no cost to the city.

Settling Pulaski Highway incinerator operator Willard J. Hackerman's lawsuit against the city may have saved millions of dollars for City Hall, but the settlement leaves open the future of that disposal site near the Baltimore City line.Mr. Hackerman filed a $75 million suit in 1993, claiming the City Council's imposition of a five-year moratorium on new incinerator construction prevented him from repairing air pollution problems replacing his 38-year-old facility.The city privatized the incinerator in 1981 during the Schaefer administration and sold it to Mr. Hackerman, a supporter of the mayor, for $41 million -- but the city also had heavy expenses for using the plant.

In a lengthy article in last Sunday's Sun, staff writer Joe Nawrozki described the descent of Pulaski Highway, particularly around the Baltimore city-county line. In a scene resembling "a Third World country," one police official said, 80 to 100 prostitutes work a five-mile stretch of the road that's chock-a-block with no-tell motels. The hookers rounded up on Pulaski by police in recent months have included a grandmother, a mother-daughter team and a woman who was seven months pregnant; the johns have included locals, long-distance travelers and even a minister who told police he was just trying to spread the word of the Lord.
