There was even talk of another major store to compliment the anchors -- Kmart and Giant Food.Thirteen years and three owners later, the promise has not been fulfilled.Kmart and Giant remain, but most of the original lessees are gone. Some, Walker's clothing apparel among them, went out of business; others, such as the News Center, moved elsewhere.

An anticipated savings of millions of dollars on the Tollgate landfill capping project would allow the county to accelerate work on three other landfill projects, Harford County officials say.The county proposes to transfer almost $2.5 million within the Solid Waste Capital Projects Fund from the Tollgate landfill fund to projects at the Scarboro landfill near Dublin and the Bush Valley landfill in Abingdon.The money -- from a lower-than-expected bid on the cap construction -- would be used during this fiscal year to help finance two new cells at Scarboro; to accelerate the remediation of the older, closed portion of Scarboro; and to reimburse state and federal environmental agencies for oversight of Bush Valley.

Discussions to move the Interstate 95 tollgate near Perryville closer to Delaware -- a shift that some Maryland lawmakers say would remove a barrier between Cecil County and the rest of Maryland -- may have hit a roadblock. A spokeswoman for the Delaware Department of Transportation said Friday that Delaware is rethinking its plans for moving its tollgate so that it can expand the number of lanes and reduce traffic backups. At least some Maryland lawmakers saw Delaware's plan as an opportunity for the states to combine their toll-collecting operations into a single stop for motorists using the interstate.

There have been some rumblings in the past two or three years that moving the Harford County Farm Fair from its home since it was re-established nearly quarter of a century ago might become necessary. Certainly, the farm fair is one the more well-attended events in Harford County, with the Fourth of July festivities in Bel Air being one of the few things that's consistently a bigger draw. The farm fair is a big event and has been since it started, and it has been associated since the beginning with the Harford County Equestrian Center on Tollgate Road in Bel Air. Granted, there had been a county fair of sorts previously, but not on the scale of what's evolved at the equestrian center.

What made 500 high school cross country runners from 23 schools come together nine days ago at Tollgate Park in Bel Air on a damp dreary Friday to run in the Harford Invitational? "Probably the most surprising thing an outsider wouldn't get is how much almost like a community this event is," said meet director Donnie Mickey. "The kids support each other, the teams support each other, they socialize, and the coaches talk to each other. It's a very competitive atmosphere, but at the same time it's very friendly."

Charlestown -- The Wellwood Restaurant in this small pre-Revolutionary War community offers a picturesque view of the Northeast River and the best crab cakes in Cecil County, according to some locals. But Larry Metz says his restaurant is cut off from many potential customers: It is on the wrong side of the $5-a-car tollgate on Interstate 95 near Perryville. "That toll hurts my business," Metz said. "It is ludicrous. It hurts every business in the county." For example, last year Metz booked a dinner party for 85 people from the Baltimore area.
