Lockheed Martin will host a discussion forum next Thursday at the Wilson Point Fire Hall.
After months of talking with residents and state regulators, Lockheed Martin said they're aiming to handle upcoming sediment pollutants cleanup in waters near its Middle River facility with as little intrusion as possible. Residents "asked us to consider them as we create the plan for how we're going to drive the trucks and, when we're selecting the remedy, to have a balanced approach," said Tom Blackman, a project lead for environmental remediation for Lockheed Martin. The alternative ultimately selected will still require "some dredging," Blackman said, of nearly 50,000 cubic yards over 12 1/2 acres, plus 8 1/5 acres of in situ treatment (using carbon pellets to attract particles), followed by short- or long-term monitoring for much of …

An overflow pipe has been capped to prevent future leaks, according to Baltimore County officials.
Baltimore County Department of Public Works employees have capped an overflow pipe that caused about 200 gallons of sewage to spill into a tributary of the Middle River near the Middle River Bridge adjacent to the Hawthorne community. "It's a complicated thing from a number of different angles," Public Works spokesman David Fidler said Tuesday. "There was some sort of utility work by the county being done on a sewer line in that area, and the spill appears to have come from an overflow pipe." The spill is estimated to be about 200 gallons, which Fidler said is "very, very small."

Father's Day was an emotional weekend for Danny Wiseman. The weekend came just after the 20th anniversary of the death of his father, Albert, to cancer.

Wiseman, a Dundalk native, won his second straight PBA East Regional title Sunday as he defeated Tommy Dakouvanos, 267-200, in the finals of the Howell Lanes Open in Howell, NJ. That win came a week after Wiseman defeated Jeff Zaffino, 279-268, in the finals of Dominick V. Diccio Memorial in Turnersville, NJ.
