Cattail Creek residents voted 90-3 to accept a Howard County negotiated settlement with their developers over a nightmarish, years-long sewage disposal problem. But now they face a new issue. The residents have dropped their private lawsuit as part of the agreement that will pay each participant thousands of dollars, but one of the development partners for the upscale Glenwood retirement community is demanding they pay for operating the replacement sewage system built in February 2009 to replace one that never worked.

PRINCE FREDERICK -- The Scrivener family has owned its Calvert County farm for nearly 100 years, and every generation has helped grow tobacco, the signature crop of Southern Maryland. But seven years ago -- before the state started paying farmers to abandon the leaf that might be hazardous to one's health -- the patriarch of the fourth generation, Bob Scrivener, planted something new: rows of Douglas fir and white pine, better known at this time of year as Christmas trees. Raising trees involves more than trimming them and shooing away deer.

Ask fox hunters what appeals to them about the sport, and they rhapsodize about the sight of hounds racing across an open field, the bite of the fall air and the delight of a full gallop. One thing's for sure: Dealing with building inspectors and zoning officers isn't supposed to be part of the deal. But that's what the Howard County-Iron Bridge Hounds, a 70-year-old fox-hunting club, has been doing the past few months. The club has briefly run afoul of Howard County officials by building a clubhouse without required approvals - a clubhouse that, despite the inclusion of a full bar and kitchen, the group initially described as no more than a renovated stable loft for farming.

The chairman of the Columbia Council plans to recommend that the council reject joining a venture to build and operate a public golf course with the county and a development partnership.Meanwhile, the county executive has said in a letter that he doubts Howard County could join in financing course construction because the county has so many other capital projects competing for money.Howard-based developer J. Thomas Scrivener, one of the partners in the proposal, said yesterday that it was unlikely the project would include a public golf course if either the county or Columbia decides not to participate in the venture.

Helen Waldron, 71, and her neighbor, Hazel Scrivener, 80, are two mild-mannered, but determined women who weren't looking to make a fuss when they appeared at the annual state-required Constant Yield public hearing on property taxes held by the County Council. In fact, neither of the Ellicott City widows had even intended to testify, but since no one else among Howard County's roughly 270,000 people appeared to protest their rising bills, white-haired Hazel Scrivener finally volunteered to say a few words.

After their 2A state semifinal game with Calvert Tuesday, the Eastern Tech softball team huddled together in the grass outside one of the fences at Bachman Sports Complex in Glen Burnie. And save for the discussion about the procedures for turning in equipment, you'd have hardly known that the Mavericks had been eliminated in a 3-0 loss to the defending state champions. That's just the way Eastern Tech second baseman Brittany Bangert wanted it. The Mavericks had nothing to hang their heads about, in what was ostensibly their first taste at the big time in four years, and she didn't want any of her teammates feeling any other way. "Our expectation was to win the regional championship," said Bangert, a second-team All-County selection last year.

Not long after he split up with his wife of 23 years and moved into his new home, Brian Stafford woke up one windy night feeling slightly nauseated. "I was kinda queasy," said Stafford, a 49-year-old appliance repairman, "and it was like, damn, I think I'm getting seasick in my own house." While he admits to being sad, lonely and an emotional wreck at the time, there was a physical cause behind his wooziness: For Stafford, and a growing number of singles -- especially the newly single -- home floats.

From the fairways of Columbia's Hobbit's Glen Golf Course to the pastureland of Howard County farms, the talk of the day is still the great cow hunt that culminated in two blasts from police riot shotguns.The objects of the hunt were four heifers. They had bolted a farm and enjoyed six weeks of freedom roaming the woods and a golf course near Columbia.Two of the heifers paid for their jaunt Thursday when police gunned them down in the woods.But before that the cows eluded a police tactical response team, animal control officers, state livestock experts, and two Maryland Department of Natural Resources' helicopters for most of the day.The four heifers -- all crossbreds -- had been on the loose for six weeks after escaping from a farm owned by J. Thomas Scrivener, a Howard County-based developer.
