About 100 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from a rooftop generator at Bond Street Wharf into the Fells Point harbor Sunday, Maryland environmental officials said. The fuel leaked into the water from a stormwater outfall at Bond Street, Maryland Department of the Environment spokesman Jay Apperson said. Officials believe 75-100 gallons of the red-dyed fuel reached the Patapsco River. MDE's Emergency Response Division contained the spill with a boom, a temporary floating barrier used to contain oil, and used absorbent materials to recover oil from the water, Apperson said.

For the past six years, the people who live along Wharf Creek in Pasadena have done everything they were supposed to do to get the clogged creek restored and a boating channel reopened.Now that the dredging is one step away, they could lose the whole project because some of their neighbors don't want the mud dumped in a field behind the local high school.Anne Arundel County has postponed the dredging indefinitely. If it can find another spoil site that makes everyone happy, fine. But if it can't, it should go ahead and put the muck on an unused field behind Chesapeake High School, as originally planned.

Gov. Parris N. Glendening has agreed to pay half the $19 million cost of extending the promenade around the Baltimore harbor by nearly a half-mile, matching city financing for the project 25 years after the walkway was begun to help revive the waterfront. Construction of the promenade and supporting bulkheads at three private development sites - HarborView, Fells Landing and Belts Wharf - would move the city toward its goal of completing a 7.5-mile public boardwalk from Canton to Locust Point.

In July, Joe Zuccaro will celebrate one year of living in a condo in a historic Fells Point tobacco warehouse that he refers to as "a Renaissance bachelor's pad with a million-dollar view. " "I have always wanted to live in Baltimore," said the Montgomery County native. "I wanted to be somewhere neat and right on the water. " The renovated warehouse, like several in and around Baltimore's harbor, is in many ways a monument to Baltimore's great industrial past. Located on Henderson's Wharf, the brick building was constructed well over a century ago by the Baltimore &Ohio Railroad for storage of tobacco bound for Europe.

A few months after purchasing the Wharf Rat Brew Pub, along with its cellar brewery, its new owners closed it down for renovations and reopened it this year as the Pratt Street Ale House. This is the downtown location, right across the street from the Baltimore Convention Center, and within cheering distance of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The original Wharf Rat on Ann Street in Fells Point is still owned and operated by the Oliver family. The Pratt Street Ale House is now a tourist-friendly, even family-friendly, sports bar, with enough televisions to satisfy the most rabid sports fans.

Dredge Disposal on Wharf CreekYour editorial (Oct. 8) and an earlier article on the Wharf Creek dredge disposal issue have prompted us to write.Approximately 17 years ago, we were in the process of building our small private marina, Hammock Island on Bodkin Creek. Wharf Creek is a tributary of Bodkin and is less than a half-mile from our site. Our dredge permit allowed the removal of 3,000 cubic yards of dredged materials -- most of which we placed upon our 3/4-acre, eroding island. At that time, we were told to expect a number of years of settling.

This restaurant, on the western edge of Little Italy, boasts of having one of the area's largest seafood menus. The menu does, indeed, list more than 20 fish, not including shellfish. They can be had broiled, fried, poached, stuffed, Cajun-style or with marinara, bearnaise or hollandaise sauce. It also lists five lobster dishes and three surf-and-turf offerings. There is variety at Mo's, but that's not all. I found large portions of well-prepared food in attractive, downtown surroundings.

Last week, I was doing some holiday shopping in a popular retail establishment; let's just call it "Wharf Uno." Wharf Uno is a pretty smelly store -- there is always some sort of enigmatic scent wafting through the aisles, emanating from a new scent-delivery system called "reed diffusers." These reeds look surprisingly like incense sticks, but they are cleverly incapable of igniting your draperies and burning your house down because you do not light them. Instead, you stand them up in a jar of fragrant oil, and they soak it up. Through some sort of magical transference system, the air starts smelling.
