Buffeted by sharply divergent citizen views, Howard County Council members are set to begin hashing out changes in the generous senior property tax credit approved just before last fall's election. Three bills and a resolution are on the agenda for Monday's council work session discussion, which is to precede a vote scheduled for April 4. Residents tried hard to sway the decision at a public hearing Monday night in Ellicott City, though several people with opposing views agreed on one thing -- that the current law, passed one week before the November election, was a political gimmick.

Plant a treeFrom: Virginia ThomasColumbiaI know that many Howard County residents are eagerly awaiting the opening of the Broken Land Parkway interchange with U.S. 29. With the opening scheduled for September, congestion created by the current intersection will soon be eliminated.While traffic flow will be facilitated with the completion of this and the Seneca Drive interchange, a price has been paid in terms of loss of trees and other vegetation at these sites. Although the State Highway Administration will be providing some landscaping, I am working with some community organizations who have volunteered to plant additional trees as offered through the Maryland TREEmendous program.

CARVING UP DISTRICT 13From: Martin G. MaddenDelegate, District 13BClarksvilleSince my election last year, I have written few letters to the editor. However, Delegate Virginia Thomas' recent pronouncements (Howard County Sun, Dec. 15, Readers write, "Thomas to testify") on legislative redistricting and her allegation that I "chose tosave the Laurel area that straddles Howard and Prince George's Counties" rather than protect the district I represent have forced me to write.I believe that an objective observer of the facts will see that if anyone is individually responsible for the unfair division of District 13, it is Virginia Thomas, not me.On Dec. 1, it was reported that Delegate Thomas was hedging her bets on her own redistricting plan for District 13, which she had submitted to the Governor's Advisory Committee.

Why Suppress Residents' Voices?Why would a newspaper like The Sun, which professes to be a strong advocate of our First Amendment rights, take such a strong stand against a referendum that would simply give Howard County citizens the same constitutional rights of other charter counties in Maryland?The right to bring to referendum comprehensive zoning is one we should have always had. Some people say that's why you elect your council person. The fact is, I am left high and dry when a zoning matter is before the council sitting as the zoning board.
