The view from Cromwell Bridge Road reveals Satyr Hill Farm in Baltimore County's Cromwell Valley to be a great, green basin. From the northern shoulder of the busy two-lane blacktop, the farm begins with a gentle descent toward Minebank Run, the stream that cuts the land into two roughly equal-sized rectangles. On the stream's opposite side, the basin climbs a slightly steeper angle to a fir-covered ridge. All's as still as a tableau by a master landscape painter, except for the two horses nibbling grass along the stream bank and the blackbirds in flight forming a dark line against the backdrop of the evergreens.

Baltimore County officials are trying to purchase as a future park site a 216-acre tract of scenic farmland near Gunpowder Falls State Park described as the last large open space in the Towson area.Acquisition of the Merrick property has been the focus of three months of negotiations by county officials and three years of intense lobbying by community leaders."There are very good reasons -- environmental, ecological and aesthetic reasons --why everyone out here feels strongly that this property should be preserved," said Dorothy Streb, secretary of the Summerfield Farms Association, a community group that has been fighting to save the tract.

After a lengthy absence, the William Donald Schaefer of old might be mounting a comeback.In his recent State of the State address, the governor seemed his familiar, idea-spouting, do-it-now self. And Monday, when he visited Towson to announce that he had changed his mind and now favored the public purchase of Satyr Hill Farm, observers remarked that Mr. Schaefer looked to be in an unusually chipper mood.Whatever the cause of his renewed spirit, the governor couldn't have picked a better issue for which to revamp his activist approach than the preservation of the 220-acre Satyr Hill Farm in Baltimore County's beautiful Cromwell Valley.

Despite a police crackdown on moving violations on the streets of Baltimore City, you're welcome to run 109 traffic signals and a dozen stop signs on Saturday. The catch is that you'll have to do it on foot. For the first time since the 1980s, Baltimore will be the backdrop for a major, 26.2-mile road race when the inaugural Baltimore Marathon Festival tours the city. The festival's ancestors were usually staged at Memorial Stadium. Now, PSINet Stadium will loom over the start and finish of the classic endurance test and two companion races.

Cromwell Valley would have pastoral beauty in a parklike setting when all the parcels of land are acquired for the project, according to a concept being developed by Baltimore County and state officials.An agricultural theme would govern development of the valley. Public activities would include hiking, hayrides, nature programs, camping, picnicking, a conference center, and musical and other performances."The trick is to use the valley without damaging it, and we know we can do it," said Wayne Harman, director of the county Recreation and Parks Department.
