One picturesque middle-class cul-de-sac in the western Savage area seems serene -- until you get out of your car. The roar from nearby Interstate 95 assaults residents' ears, prompting them to seek peace and quiet away from their own back yards.Now the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is buying land near those back yards to expand Savage Park, which many area residents use as a haven away from the diesel-fueled din."Living next to I-95, it's nice to have a place to get away," said Danny Walburn, who lives on Spring Water Path, a stone's throw from the new park land.

Three men clutched their GPS electronic navigation units as they strode into the wall-encircled clearing. Their searching gazes suggested they weren't far from their goal. Jason Ashmore's eyes scanned every crevice in the stone walls. He paused and suddenly bent down, reached into a hole under a stone slab and pulled out a white plastic container marked in bold black letters, "GEOCACHING.

It was built in two phases, with the first 2 1/2 -mile section finished in 1999. Phase one runs from Savage Park across Vollmerhausen Road in Jessup, under Interstate 95, and continues north to the Pratt Truss Bridge near Old Guilford Road in Columbia.

This portion of the pathway crosses the Pratt Truss Bridge and continues northwest under Guilford Road, Broken Land Parkway and Route 32 before heading east to join the Columbia Association pathways that surround Lake Elkhorn.

IN 1967, Mickey Mantle made baseball history when he hit his 500th home run and beat the Baltimore Orioles, 8-6, at Yankee Stadium. In Savage Park that same year, a few local guys made history by starting a baseball team for neighborhood kids. The birth of the Savage Boys and Girls Club was a community effort with a simple philosophy: Every child -- no matter his or her ability to play or pay -- should be able to participate in recreational sports. The club has grown in 35 years, but its purpose remains the same.

LIVING IN an old town is like living in an old house -- there's always work needed to keep the joint up.Savage is no exception. Residents periodically invest sweat equity to make our town a pleasant place to live.Maintenance work, such as the cemetery cleanup last fall, is an example of that sweat equity.Now members of the Savage Community Association and the Carroll Baldwin Hall Committee have decided that it is time to do a little more. And, like all the best ideas, this one serves several purposes: to get rid of junk, bring in money and improve the appearance of Savage.
