So where were the snowplows and salt trucks last Sunday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., especially in Harford County and northeast Baltimore County? Major roads like Route 152, Bel Air Road, Jerusalem Road and all others were completely untouched and treacherous! Oh, that's right, all the drivers were in their Ravens Snuggies waiting for the game. What a shameful lack of response! (I won't even focus on the fact that the weather reporters got the storm completely wrong by predicting a mere 1-to-2 inches that quickly was adjusted to 3-to-5 inches - and still no plows!

Letter to The Aegis | September 5, 2013
Editor: Thank you for the opportunity to address recent letters to The Aegis regarding the proposed development at the corner of Route 152 and Route 147 in Fallston. I am a community member that is very concerned about the plan to develop the agricultural zoned portion of the land for business use. I disagree with the comments presented in The Aegis over the last few months about a "need" in Fallston for an "elite athletic membership facility" or "field house" on this property.

No barricade will block the entrance to Old Fallston Road at Route 152 after all.The County Council voted 4-3 Tuesday to keep open the one-tenth of a mile of road connecting Route 152 with Carrs Mill Road, where Fallston High School sits.The closing was supported by Harford's Department of Public Works, which said too many cars, most traveling above the posted 25 mph speed limit, had disrupted residents.Louis Sagi and other residents of the street approached the county this year about building a barricade -- in the form of a cul-de-sac -- at the end of their one-way street, which has only one entrance at Route 152."

A couple of areas of Harford County particularly hard hit by power outages from Storm Sandy were Fallston and Fountain Green, where many businesses and homes were still dark Tuesday night. Wednesday morning, however, power had restored to much of Fallston and to Fountain Green, and life appeared to be getting back to normal. It was a far different story Tuesday, night, however. The entire Route 1 commercial strip in Fallston from the Bel Air Bypass to the Baltimore County line did not have power around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Neighbors who fear that a plan to expand an energy-producing incinerator in Harford County will cause them traffic headaches won't know until later this year if their concerns will be addressed. The Harford County Council recently chose not to consider a proposal that would have required the Army, Baltimore County and the state to build a new access road from Route 24 to the Harford Waste-to-Energy Facility next to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Joppa as part of a proposed $400 million expansion project.

Of the eight possible sites for a new and larger park-and-ride at Interstate 95 and Route 152 in Joppa, state transportation officials' favorite is the least popular with residents. The preferred site is a nearly 10-acre wooded parcel just north of the interstate. "That is 10 acres of pristine woods that is our buffer from 95," said Vince Rabenau of Joppa during an informational meeting last week at the Joppa-Magnolia Fire Hall. The property, owned by Trinity Baptist Church, provides "a sanctuary from the noise, pollution and traffic," he said.
