I read with interest the Aug. 1 article "Dispute between neighbors, garden center widens," and was disappointed to see that it characterized the "dispute" as being between one local homeowner and River Hill Garden Center owner Steve Klein. The article failed to mention that Howard County Council members Courtney Watson, Jen Terrasa and Calvin Ball also expressed concern over the proposed development (during the July 1 County Council work session). Additionally, in a July 22 letter to the Howard County Council, the River Hill Village Board of Directors indicated that it was "appalled" by the proposed development and that it "…emphatically re-affirms the position of the 2009 River Hill Village Board that opposed rezoning of this property from residential (R-20)

Barron, Lois Lowry, Marc Brown and Jon Scieszka. Seated opposite Haddix was Barb Langridge, host of the county school system's "Books Alive!"

Hoping to speed long lines of northbound commuters who slow to a crawl each afternoon on the last two-lane section of U.S. 29 near Columbia, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman has made the long-anticipated road widening his top highway priority in his annual letter to state transportation officials. Ulman also wants the state to move forward on safety studies for Route 32 near River Road in the Sykesville area, where a mother and son were killed in an accident this summer, along with widening Route 32 west from Route 108 and also eastbound near Interstate 95. Then there's the widening of Interstate 70 between the Baltimore County line and the merger with U.S. 40, a new intersection at U.S. 1 and Route 175, and more.

Howard County Councilman Ken Ulman promised to vote against commercial zoning for several properties along Route 108 at a meeting this week attended by more than 70 residents of the Beaverbrook and Longfellow neighborhoods. But for the corridor to remain residential, Ulman said, something has to change along a state road that has evolved into a highway linking U.S. 29 and some of the county's most affluent communities. "If that area is not commercial, we probably have to look at how to make it attractive for residential long term," said Ulman, a west Columbia Democrat, at the meeting Monday.
