From the beginning, John L. Baker said he was fighting for the environment, trying to save the last undeveloped plot of land in his Ellicott City neighborhood.But over the years, a drainage pipe on Baker's property off Bonnie View Court has carved a ditch in the 10-acre wooded lot adjacent to his house, dumping unknown quantities of silt into wetlands and streams that feed into the Chesapeake Bay, a developer contends.Ron Wildman, who wants to develop the 10 acres known as Bonnie Branch Overlook, blames Baker for neglecting the pipe and harming the environment, even after Howard County officials warned Baker about the erosion problem and offered him several options for resolving it.Wildman wants to build 10 houses on Bonnie Branch Overlook, which is home to streams, woods, wetlands and wildlife.

Further delaying a project dogged by community opposition for three years, Howard County officials have issued a stop-work order against an 11-house development being built around a wooded ravine in Ellicott City. County inspectors say concerns about tree-felling that started two weeks ago at the property and about deviations from the initial building designs prompted them to stop contractors working for developer Ronald Wildman. Tree harvesters appear to have cleared woods outside the boundaries outlined in the county-approved plans for the development - Bonnie Branch Overlook - in a hilly crook adjacent to a stream, inspectors say. "The plan delineates the area that may be de-wooded, and the contractor doing the work went beyond the area slightly," said J. Michael Evans, director of the Howard County Department of Inspections, Licenses and Permits.

There aren't many places in Ellicott City like this.This 10-acre wooded area has no paths or picnic tables, and there are no roads to take you in there. Instead, there are a variety of trees, two streams, patches of wetlands, deer, fish, birds -- and sunlight trying to peek in.For owner Ron Wildman, who lives across the street, it's the perfect place to build 11 environmentally friendly homes. For nearby neighbors on Worthington Way, this last piece of undeveloped land in the neighborhood has been a part of their homes for 30 years -- and they want to keep it that way."

Lee Walker Oxenham says she has done it all for her 6-year-old son, Ian, who likes to hunt for tadpoles and wants to save the tigers.Oxenham can't do much about tigers. But she is fighting as hard as she can to preserve a 10-acre plot of land near her Ellicott City home, where neighborhood children like to play in the woods and streams and wetlands, and where a developer wants to build homes on part of the acreage.The land is one of the largest undeveloped plots left in Ellicott City and nearby residents, led by Oxenham, are doing their best to keep it that way.Last night at a sometimes heated county Board of Appeals meeting -- the fifth on the proposed development off Bonnie Branch Road -- Oxenham was cross-examined late into the night by the county's lawyer.

Worthington Way residents were supposed to make their case last night to the Howard County Board of Appeals for preserving a 10-acre lot in Ellicott City.Instead, residents and board members debated whether the community was adequately informed about how to challenge a decision by the Department of Planning and Zoning, and the case was postponed until Sept. 22.Neighbors planned to appeal the department's decision to allow the lot to be developed, arguing that the site is an environmentally fragile one that is not appropriate for development.

The hardest part, writing about a Haunted House?How do you spell a scream?There's AIYEEEEE, but that's more like what a bronco rider screeches just before being thrown off the bronco. There's ARGHHHH, but that's what Charlie Brown yells when Lucy pulls away the football. There's EEEEKKKK, which is what Little Miss Muffet exclaimed when the spider sat down beside her, so that's close.Still, it's not quite right. It doesn't quite capture the combination of surprise, fear and joy that's the benchmark of a good Halloween-style Haunted House.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Imagine that a nationalist wildman -- Vladimir Zhirinovsky, for example -- becomes president of Russia. Probable? No. Possible? Yes; nothing is yet guaranteed in the new Russia. Imagine that he leans heavily on former Soviet states to return to the fold, as he has said he would. They -- some of them new members of NATO or close to membership -- look westward for help.Ask Americans if they are willing to fight for, say, Ukraine, and they are likely to suggest a sanity test.
