The historic Rodgers Forge neighborhood in Towson has adopted guidelines for residents who want to install solar panels, an effort community leaders hope can strike a balance between preserving the community's architecture and embracing alternative energy. A committee of the Rodgers Forge Community Association worked for about a year to come up with the recommendations, which the full board approved in September, according to immediate past president Stu Sirota. "I think this shows that Rodgers Forge is a progressive neighborhood that cares about its history and maintaining the architectural integrity of its homes, while still being able to allow a modern and innovative green technology," Sirota said.

Our community has much to celebrate. Many congratulations and much merriment in the Forge during the last month of one of our nicest summers on record. And it was fantastic weather for a wedding. Just ask Harrison Levy and Sara Mosgin , new residents of Brandon Road. On Aug. 23 they promised to love, honor and live happily ever after in good times, like a picnic lunch by a beautiful lake, and challenging times, such as a heart-pumping, breath-catching 3-mile hike up a Colorado mountainside (which is how Harrison proposed)

Calling the shooting a "simply cold-blooded execution," a Baltimore County judge sentenced Dante Antonio Woods to life without parole on Wednesday for a fatal shooting in Rodgers Forge last summer. Prosecutors said Woods — who was 22 at the time — gunned down Donte Stephens, 36, on July 17, 2013, outside his home in the 100 block of Murdock Road, where he lived with his girlfriend and her daughter, who had a 5-year-old son with Woods. Judge Sherrie R. Bailey said it's "rare to see homicide cases where there is this much time to think and consider one's actions.

The limits of growth has been a constant theme in Towson news over recent years, mostly focusing on major redevelopment downtown. Meanwhile, the same issue is also a sore spot a little farther south - around Towson University. The discomfort over "boom town" expansion felt by residents near Towson's core is shared by residents of Rodgers Forge, which borders TU. The current flash point has been discussion over a proposed $2 million in improvements to a softball field. TU officials say the upgrade is necessary for the university to meet equal facilities requirements under Title IX. Worrisome to Rodgers Forge residents is part of the design that includes an electrical conduit, which they fear could mean the installation of lights in the future - a hot button issue in the suburban enclave.

This is the story of Stewart "Stu" McCullouch III , part-time Rodgers Forge resident, retired Air Force captain, aerospace engineer, triathlete and aspiring Ironman. Sounds intimidating, but truly, if you met him you would never know most of these accomplishments because boasting doesn't suit his character. You would simply think him the most jovial, salt-of-the-earth man you ever met. And maybe you did meet him during his annual part-time residency on Stanmore Road where he would stay with his daughter.

Some of the residents of the Rodgers Forge neighborhood that borders Towson University's softball stadium are alumni of the school and fans of the Tigers. They understand the university's desire to build a $2 million new facility this summer and bring the program up to NCAA Title IX standards. They just don't want it 25 feet from their backyards. The roughly two-dozen neighbors, who last month formed an ad-hoc committee to protest a new complex, rallied outside the university Saturday morning, saying the school has refused to negotiate with them on the plans.

As my 9-year-old son and I were enjoying a meal at a Lebanese cafe last month, I overheard a middle aged woman say to the server: "This is my first Memorial Day weekend alone. I'm separated, and the kids are with their dad. " The way in which she wore her heart on her sleeve was touching, as if she thought others might think something was amiss because she was dining alone. It reminded me of my own vulnerability when my marriage broke down several years ago. The server expressed her sympathy.

Jerry Truelove and a dozen of his Rodgers Forge neighbors have formed an ad hoc committee to negotiate with TU about a planned women's softball stadium. They claim the new construction will destroy their quality of life and decrease their property values and they want to see the stadium built elsewhere on the 328-acre campus, where it won't impact any homes. On a recent Sunday afternoon, Jerry Truelove stood  in the backyard of his Stanmore Court home near an 8-foot-high fence that separates Rodgers Forge from the Towson University campus when a ball dropped from the tree branches.
