Alerted by a phone call one recent Sunday, Stephen Pieper drove his black pickup the few miles from his farm in White Hall to Monkton, where he arrived too late to stop a man from plowing under the corn on 95 acres of land he'd leased for decades. Pieper, who leases more than 1,000 acres in Baltimore and Harford counties, said $100,000 worth of corn was destroyed by the farm's new owner — the CEO of Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group. David Smith, who heads the nation's largest independent TV broadcast company, had no choice, his attorney said.

The recent comments by Vincent DeMarco ( "Tougher gun laws are helping reduce homicides in Baltimore," July 5) are flawed in many respects. First he only points to New York City for statistics that support his views, but when other large cities like Chicago with strict gun laws are used, the reverse is true. Second Mr. DeMarco and The Baltimore Sun never report the statistics of how many people arrested for violent crimes have legal weapons. Third, the Maryland law has not made it more difficult for criminals to purchase firearms; rather, it has created a revenue source for the state and made it more difficult for law abiding citizens to purchase firearms.

A group of high school students studying atmospheric pressure and temperature is searching for a weather balloon and payload of research equipment they think disappeared somewhere in White Hall. The students, from Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School in New York City, launched the balloon about 9 a.m. Sunday from Chambersburg, Pa. But they lost radio contact with it about 15 minutes later, and they were unable to track it, junior Alexander Daley said in an e-mail.

Keith Kratz grew up in White Hall in northern Baltimore County with happy memories of visits to the general store just across the two-lane street from his home. "It was a mom-and-pop convenience store back then," he said. "There was even a gas pump out front. " Kratz, 49, hasn't strayed far from his roots. In fact, he purchased that general store in 2001 for $170,000. His intention was to turn the property, sitting on 2.2 acres, into a home for himself and commercial space for his landscaping business, Outdoor Expressions.

Harford County emergency officials began bracing for potential flooding Tuesday afternoon, with between 3 to 5 inches of additional rain forecast to fall on the county in the ensuing 24 to 48 hours. Representatives from the Harford County Department of Emergency Services and the Maryland Emergency Management Agency went to the north county area Tuesday afternoon to ask some residents along Little Deer Creek to consider leaving their homes because an earthen dam was in potential danger of being breached.

The Crofton birthplace of Johns Hopkins, which once anchored hundreds of acres of farmland in Anne Arundel County, soon may see its territory shrink once more. A developer has proposed building an assisted-living center on the 10.5-acre lot next door to Whites Hall, a brick home where the founder of the Baltimore university and hospital was born in 1795. The plans sparked traffic fears among residents, as well as concerns about development on one of the last lots next to the house, which was built in the 1700s and anchors the remaining 13 acres of what was originally an 1,800-acre land grant given in 1665 to Colonial official Jerome White.

Rising at dawn yesterday, Paul Roberts climbed into a skid loader to start clearing out the muddy remnants of a storm that less than 12 hours earlier had caused several feet of floodwater to wash through his White Hall neighborhood in northern Baltimore County. "It's like a slurry," said Roberts, 40. "With this flood, the mud is particularly bad. I've never seen it like this before." By afternoon, he had managed to clear enough mud to free two of his cars - including a restored 1976 MG that had a water line up to the top of its windows - from the parking lot adjacent to the Gunpowder Falls State Park Trail and Department of Natural Resources' maintenance building where he works.

Seems like a lot of cover-your-butt emails were involved in the launch of Maryland's version of Obamacare's health insurance exchange. I wonder if that old, time-tested method of solving problems was ever used - at any time, did anyone actually talk to the other person? By the way, are there not enough insurance brokers agents, and insurance companies themselves that are actually able to sell their own policies? Why did they allow the government to take over their sales efforts? Could this be another case of "following the money?"

Concerning recent comments regarding Harford County Executive David Craig's position on the "rain tax," I believe what Mr. Craig was saying is it is time to re-examine the whole issue ("Council introduces bill for Craig's repeal of 'rain tax,' Oct. 2). We have been trying to "save the Chesapeake Bay" for 50 or more years. Just let us know where the money goes, who truly benefits, how many bureaucrats receive jobs, etc. Do not provide large categories, just give us some real specific information on its use. And how did the state decide that certain counties would be taxed, but other Maryland citizens are not?
