Donna Brown marvels at the view from her kitchen's large bay window. Although she lives 15 minutes from downtown Baltimore, the rolling hills, tall trees and the rippling Jones Falls beyond her outdoor deck remind her of being on vacation at Deep Creek Lake. Brown's retreat in the woods is in Baltimore County in the new development of Rockland Ridge. Here, small groupings of cluster homes dot wide streets that wind and climb upward past the main gates off Falls Road. After 10 years living in what she calls a "very formal, center hall colonial" in Homeland in North Baltimore, Brown, 60, an agent at Long & Foster's Green Spring Station office, felt it was time for a change.

RAMAPO, N.Y. -- Upstate New Yorkers think of Rockland County as downstate, while downstate New Yorkers think of it as upstate, if they think about it at all. Many know it simply as the first rest stop after they cross the Tappan Zee Bridge: Rockland, then New Jersey. At just 176 square miles, Rockland is the smallest county in the state (after the five boroughs of New York City) and one that is often slighted because of its precarious foothold west of the Hudson River above New Jersey.

City energy tax will drive away industrial jobs Mayor Martin O'Malley's proposal to impose a 4 percent energy tax on Baltimore City manufacturers is a short-sighted response to a crisis that has been developing for two decades ("Council moves to trim budget," June 15). The current budget shortfall is a consequence, at least in part, of the city's shrinking manufacturing base and the resulting loss of tax revenues of all types from manufacturers and wage-earners and from the reduced amount of factory wages recycled through the local economy.
