Disgruntled Ellicott City residents want to quash a proposal to move5,000 feet of Rogers Avenue westward.Although the $4.3 million project to study and realign Rogers Avenue between U.S. 40 and Interstate 70 is still two years away, the Planning and Zoning Department included it among this year's capital budget requests. No money is requested until fiscal 1995.The fact that the project appears in the capital budget at all isanathema to nearby residents who attended the Planning Board public hearing Tuesday.

A woman was found fatally shot Thursday evening in St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City, a man was discovered dead on the grounds nearby and another woman was critically injured by gunfire — turning a quiet, family neighborhood near the historic downtown into a crime scene. Police and SWAT team members swarmed the 3600 block of Rogers Ave., just up the hill from the historic mill town's Main Street, and blocked off a section of the road after receiving a call about 5:20 p.m. from a custodian at the church, who said he'd found two women in a church office suffering from gunshot wounds.

Land once intended for a new Howard County government complex in Ellicott City will instead be the site of 163 townhouses, according to a developer's plan scheduled for presentation to the public Tuesday night. Ellicott Mills Overlook is the latest change in one of Howard County's oldest areas of suburban development, near U.S. 40. A 150-unit Alta at Regency Crest apartment complex for seniors is under construction on a former farm remnant across Rogers Avenue, and plans are to eventually redevelop the nearby Normandy Shopping Center and the adjacent former Miller Motors Ford dealership across the divided highway.

The Sunday morning crash of a Baltimore firetruck and a sport utility vehicle at Park Heights Avenue and Clarks Lane, in which three lost their lives, was eerily reminiscent of a crash between two firetrucks at Park Heights and Rogers avenues on Nov. 9, 1949. At 3:10 on a warm late-autumn afternoon, an alarm sounded from Box 8664, reporting a grass fire at Glen and Key avenues. A hook-and-ladder truck from Truck Company 22 responded and traveled north on Park Heights Avenue at 55 mph with its siren screaming.

Next year, bulldozers are to knock down the 82-year-old pale green farmhouse overlooking Rogers Avenue just east of U.S. 40 in Ellicott City and slice 15 feet off the crest of the hill on which it sits. Rising there will be four-story apartment buildings surrounding a landscaped courtyard and pond that will obliterate the last remnant of an earlier, rural way of life. The apartments will house 152 upscale tenants age 55 or older. It is an old story in post-World War II Howard County, where a mostly rural population of 36,172 people in 1960 had exploded by last year to 272,452 people living in mostly suburban surroundings, according to census figures.

Jerry Hicks, 64, lives in Glen Burnie, but he prays several times a week at Our Lady's Center, off Rogers Avenue in Ellicott City. "I'm a roaming Catholic," he jokes, noting that he also attends churches in Washington and on the Eastern Shore. For almost six years, roaming to Ellicott City meant that Hicks had to pray in a double-wide rented trailer, because the original building had been destroyed by fire Dec. 22, 2001. After years of effort, mostly by retired engineer Philip Adinolfi, 84, the structure has been rebuilt and is roughly double its original size.
