A century after horses relinquished to automobiles their lead role in American transportation, horsepower may be making a comeback. With help from the federal and state governments, Anne Arundel County recently commissioned an $85,000 study to determine whether horse manure can efficiently be used to produce electricity and liquid fuel for motor vehicles. The notion of converting animal waste into an alternate energy source is not new, but such efforts have proved impractical when the conversion process was too expensive or the waste - such as chicken manure - was more commercially valuable as a fertilizer.

Contamination exceeding federal drinking water standards have been found in ground water beneath the Sudley Landfill in South County, a state environmental spokesman said yesterday.The contaminants -- volatile organic chemicals commonly used in household paints, degreasers, wax and varnish -- are similar to those discovered at two test wells at the Millersville Landfill, whose management recently has come under scrutiny by nearby residents and County Executive Robert R. Neall.Vinyl chloride, trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethene were found in one of nine ground water monitoring wells located at the South County facility last December, said John Goheen, a spokesman for the Maryland Department of the Environment.

An unexplained surge in the amount of trash flowing into the Sudley Landfill this spring has led the county to close the South County facility to commercial trash haulers.As of this morning, those commercial haulers must travel an additional 35 miles north to the larger Millersville Landfill, said Jody Vollmar, spokeswoman for the county Department of Utilities.The county already had planned to close Sudley on Oct. 8 to eliminate operating costs and prevent further contamination of the ground water, she said.

But the problem still had not been resolved when an inspector returned last week.

The county's surprise decision to close the Sudley Landfill to commercial haulers nearly four months early means more trash is being dumped in the Millersville Landfill, already a source of contention among residents.Sudley's trash -- 9,000 tons a year -- is in addition to 14,000 tons of trash a year that the county began accepting from Annapolis on July 1 when the city's landfill closed."It was a surprise to us that they closed Sudley," said Norman G. Myers, president of the Greater Odenton Improvement Association, who said he has not yet received any complaints about the additional truck traffic on Burns Crossing Road.

Marie Wallis was watching television when she was shot in the back of the head through her family room window in Harwood in January - an unusually violent incident for the rural, south county neighborhood and even more baffling because police couldn't identify any suspects who might have wanted to harm the 24-year-old woman. Anne Arundel County Detective Bob Aurand didn't forget the case, even though he wasn't investigating it. When he saw a case of .22-caliber ammunition - the same kind used in the Jan. 3 shooting - in the bedroom of a suspect police were arresting and charging in April in the rape of a medical worker in Harwood, he seized it, suspecting there might be a link.

THE SPIRIT of voluntarism abounds this week in the frothy wake of the presidential summit in Philadelphia. So, in that spirit -- and in the interest of encouraging governmental support of private citizens who answer the call to community service -- I offer the story of brothers Bobby and Jim Sturgell, their sister Sharon and all others who volunteered for a day of roadside trash pickup in Anne Arundel County. It was a beautiful thing while it lasted.The Sturgell family owns Happy Harbor, a restaurant and tavern in Deale, south of Annapolis.
