An unknown driver ran his van through a southeast section of the more-than-150-year-old iron fence surrounding Baltimore's Washington Monument in Mount Vernon early Saturday morning, police said. Police were dispatched just after 2:30 a.m. to Washington Place and East Mount Vernon Place after a 1997 Chrysler van struck the fence, but police spokesman Kevin Brown could not confirm if any citations had been issued. The fence, adorned with a motif of battle axes and stars, surrounds the 178-foot-tall monument designed by architect Robert Mills.

Being a native Philadelphian and currently a resident of eastern Baltimore County, I am anything but a Redskins fan. However, I cannot understand why anyone would be offended by the team's name ( "Redskins name controversy heats up with federal cancellation of trademark," June 18). In fact, Native Americans should feel proud that a team, especially one based in the nation's capital, would honor the fighting spirit of Native Americans by naming itself after them. A football team seeks to win every time it takes the field.

Oliver House has a history as rich as its structure. Its current owners, Stephen and Sharon Crum, are doing their part to ensure its preservation by restoring the property. Although the house is named for its original owner, Robert Oliver, it gained historical attention because of its architect, Robert Mills. Both men have a place in the history of Maryland. Oliver, a merchant and one of the original directors of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, purchased about 1,500 acres, which included what is now Oliver Beach.

Oliver Beach residents who have been fighting for two years to preserve the open land around a historic 1819 mansion on the Gunpowder River have won a rare victory from Baltimore County's bureaucracy.The county Board of Appeals reversed an earlier approval of Emerald Development Corp.'s proposed 12-home Oliver Landing project. The board decided July 16 that the county planning board did not properly consider the historic significance of the three acres around the mansion.Such reversals are rare, since the board is legally constrained from throwing out development approvals unless they're found to be arbitrary or procured by fraud.
