Anne Arundel County officials are negotiating to buy 120 acres of waterfront property that would link two other wooded tracts and create a regional 200-acre North County park on Stony Creek.The resulting park on the Marley Neck peninsula would be slightly smaller than the 240-acre Downs Memorial Park in Pasadena. It would preserve a green wedge on the rapidly developing peninsula and offer a refuge in the mostly paved-over Glen Burnie-North County area.The site for the unnamed park has about a half-mile of waterfront on Big Burley Cove and Stony Creek.

Charles Ryder, 48, of Glen Burnie, was found at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday after authorities said the man jumped Saturday from a moving Sea Ray vessel on Stony Creek at around 5:15 p.m. Officials from several agencies searched for Ryder in the water on Saturday, but could not recover him by nightfall.

Mount Pleasant Beach residents hope the thousands of clams nestled in the silt beneath neighbor Dan Anthony's pier herald a healthier Stony Creek.Anthony, who has lived on the creek 33 years, said he first noticed the brackish-water clams -- which are half the size of commercially harvested clams -- a year ago.Now, large beds are clearly visible several feet below the green algae-tinted water."

The county has blocked construction of a 120-slip marina on Stony Creek that has already received state and federal permits.County officials say the 3-acre site, where Sterling Homes Inc hopes to build a marina for residents in the Stoney Beach community, does not have the zoning needed for a commercial facility.The developer disagrees. Sterling Leppo, owner of Sterlin Homes, said the County Council rezoned the property from commercial to residential use after he purchased it and had begun construction.

Anne Arundel County officials are moving ahead with plans to buy waterfront property for a 200-acre North County park on Stony Creek and hope to have a deal within six months.County officials opened negotiations last year with landowner David Heckendorf to buy 120 acres that would be linked with two other strips of land the county owns to create Stony Creek Park. That configuration of properties would give the new park about a half-mile of waterfront property on Big Burley Cove and Stony Creek.

THERE WAS A TIME around the turn of the century, when Curtis, Rock and Stony creeks were "crowded throughout their length with little resorts much frequented in season," according to a contemporary report.On hot and lazy summer days, competing steamboats ferried city dwellers from Baltimore to those beaches. Revelers came to have a good time -- carrying baskets of sandwiches, cold chicken and deviled eggs.We all know what has happened since: The Curtis Bay area became a base for chemical industry.

People who live in communities along the creeks and rivers of northern Anne Arundel County all share a passion for the water. But a spreading dispute over use of one creek shows that homeowners love their waterfront lives for different reasons.The Riviera Beach Community Improvement Association has asked the state to impose a 6-knot speed limit, about 6.9 mph, on part of Stony Creek, a favorite area for water-skiers and boaters. Association members say that wakes and waves from the water activity are major contributors to beach erosion.

The fireboat in Stony Creek was a bit like having a fire station in your back yard, according to some Riviera Beach residents. It was ideal when there was an emergency, but not so appealing when there wasn't. Deciding the boat was more of a safety liability than an asset, the Sunset Beach Improvement Association asked the Riviera Beach Volunteer Fire Company to remove it this season, which has happened. The volunteer company still has a boat in Rock Creek, which is a good location from which to send out rescue operations and fight fires on boats in the Patapsco River.
