The busy Stoney Creek Bridge in northern Pasadena reopened to traffic Monday morning after being closed for five weeks as part of a repair project. The bridge, which carries Fort Smallwood Road over Stoney Creek, is "a nicely painted and repaired bridge," said Charlie Gischlar, a spokesman for the State Highway Administration. The 66-year-old drawbridge was in desperate need of repairs, highway officials said, and the only way to do the work was to completely shut it down to traffic.

The bridge is stuck! Residents of Riviera Beach and the small waterfront communities that hug the shores of the Patapsco River in northern Anne Arundel County say they hear that way too often.The 52-year-old Stoney Creek drawbridge -- which goes up for boats and often doesn't come down for cars -- is a touchy topic, the mere mention of which can move perfectly normal people to eye-bulging, vein-popping, blood pressure-boosting diatribes.It's not the daily traffic delays on the two-lane structure connecting the north and south sides of Fort Smallwood Road that bother residents.

More people and building in Anne Arundel County might mean more traffic and development, but it also means more and bigger parks.A record $2.8 million in state funds for new and larger parks in the county has been earmarked in the past year under the 30-year-old Program Open Space, which parcels out money to )) counties based on their growth.The funds marked for Anne Arundel have been increasing steadily since the mid-1980s.In a complex funding ritual, the county must now get final state approval for proposed park projects before roping off property, but county recreation and parks officials expect this year's seven projects to sail through.

To John McIntyre 's list ("Less than glorious: the War of 1812," June 6) please add the name of William Henry Winder. Before he gained infamy as the architect of Washington's defense in 1814, Baltimore's most prominent lawyer, catapulted from civilian to brigadier general, cut his teeth at the 1813 Battle of Stoney Creek in Upper Canada. As second in command of a 2,700 man brigade, he had the distinction of being the second general officer captured in that night action. Despite his less than distinguished service record, he resumed his extensive law practice in Baltimore after then war and when he died in 1824, The Baltimore Patriot reported the largest funeral procession ever seen in Baltimore with 15,000 people accompanying Mr. Winder's body to his grave.
