Triadelphia Reservoir can be a source of fun on the water, from kayaking to fishing, but those who want to enjoy themselves on land nearby have plenty of opportunities, too. "It's a respite from the humdrum of daily living in the suburbs," said Al Richardson, acting director of the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, which owns the reservoir. "You can fish, you can picnic, you can hike. There's a host of watershed opportunities in the area," Richardson said. Fishing is common on the reservoir.

The body found Friday in the Triadelphia Reservoir on the Patuxent River has been identified as a 46-year-old Gaithersburg man wanted for attempted murder, carjacking and assault in Howard County. Montgomery County Police said the man was Robert Lewis Thornton, who was being sought for an incident near the reservoir late May 12 in which he drove a truck into the rear of a vehicle driven by a female friend he had earlier argued with, forcing her off Brighton Dam Road. He is alleged to have chased her into the woods, threatened her life and cut her in the neck before fleeing when a passerby called police.

Six months of searching for a better way to treat wastewater for a planned 400-seat addition to Glenelg High School have produced nothing but frustration for county officials and their critics. No progress has been made toward obtaining land for an improved Glenelg High septic system, and residents oppose building a wastewater treatment plant for the school. The addition will be delayed, "at a minimum until the 2002 school year," said Sidney L. Cousin, associate county school superintendent.

School officials have announced that they will recommend to the Howard County Board of Education at its meeting Thursday that a wastewater treatment plant be built on the property of Glenelg High School. If the school board agrees, the decision could resolve a contentious western Howard issue. Community members and school and county officials have debated for about 10 months how to add 400 seats at Glenelg without overwhelming the school's septic system. In the announcement Friday, Associate Superintendent Sydney L. Cousin said the existing septic system has been failing for some time and its problems need to be addressed before an addition can be built.

Sixteen months after his attempt to slow a planned residential community in Dayton failed, Howard County Council Chairman C. Vernon Gray is trying again.The east Columbia Democrat has drafted a zoning amendment that would prohibit Glenwood farmer Charles Sharp from building some of the 95 houses he has proposed on 237 acres of farmland on Triadelphia Road. Gray said the amendment would affect development of about 35 one-acre lots within 2,500 feet of the Triadelphia Reservoir.Gray, who in September 1997 proposed an amendment that would have reduced the number of houses Sharp could build, said he wants to protect the ground water in wells and the reservoir from the destructive effects of the development, known as Big Branch Overlook.

People complaining about potential environmental hazards from a wastewater treatment system needed for an expansion of Glenelg High School should be ignored, says County Councilman Charles C. Feaga, a western county Republican. "Those people were anti-growth in the extreme, and some are only recently here," Feaga told a meeting of County Council and school board members Wednesday. He was describing testimony at a state environmental hearing he attended Monday night at the school. The state must issue a permit for the treatment system before the addition can be built.

Critter counts. We've been doing them since Howdy Doody was a 2-by-4, from swans a-swimming and geese a-laying to Dr. Seuss' red fish and blue fish. This year is no different. Hearty bands of volunteers will be tromping around this season, sizing up the populations of bird species and taking stock of the traditional spawning grounds of yellow perch. Both groups could use a couple more boots (and waders) on the ground. Tuesday starts the 105th annual "Christmas Bird Count" sponsored by the National Audubon Society and billed as the nation's oldest and largest citizen-run science project.
