It was after crowds slowly filtered out of a Thursday meeting at Annapolis City Hall and Lehr Jaduon and Cathy Durkan ended up near each other. Jackson, a Baltimore businessman who wants to ran the historic pn^erty, had Just spent a good part of the meeting defending himself and his business. Sometimes raised his voice. Sometimes others raised their voices at him. He negotiated answers to tough questions, including a few firom Durkan, president of the Annapolis Sustainable Business Alliance. Durkan and her group want the city to stop its discussions with Jackson's Baltimore-based company on the Market House and start over with more community input If she has her way, Jackson's efforts to run the facility will be deep-sized. "Are you and I an right?" Jackson asked Durkan. His tie was loosened and his jacket and bag were sitting on a chair across flrom him. Then there was silence. And it was awkward. "I don't know, are we?" Dmkan replied. For the next five minutes or so, the two tossed charged questions at each other with a reporter, the only witness, just feet away. Durkan declared that she and Jackson have different understandings of what "sustainability" means. Jackson told Durkan he had never experienced such hostility in his four decades in commercial development. Backhanded insults followed and continued until one of Jackson's associates climbed the steps to the second floor of City Hall and' said the conversation needed to stop — it was late and it was time to go home. Jackson and Durkan talked for five more minutes before saying their goodbyes. It was the fourth flare-up over the Market House In two weeks and the third that day. Jackson and Mayor Josh Cohen found themselves under intense scratiny during a briefing Thursday evening. Just hours earlier Cohen and Al-derwoman Sheila Finlayson tani^ over the issue, much as they did on Monday. And then there was the Sept 9 meeting. At a standing-room-<Hily event hosted by Durkan and her group in a cramped and stuffy (See MARKET. Page AS) 'Sooey!' Hog-calling contest draws laughs at county fair By HEATHER RAWLYK Staff Writer When it came to hog calling at the Anne Arundel County tor yesterday, Sue Slater of Edgewater was quite a ham. She screamed. She snorted. She told the hogs to "come on to dinna!" It worked. Slater. 68, beat out three other adults, including Mike Cecil of Davidsonville, who grew up on a hog feum, during the comical competition, held outside the cattle bam at the county fiidrgrounds in Crownsville. "I just have a big mouth," she said, holding up her blue ribbon for her giggling friends to see. "Go senior citizens!" While the hog-calling contest was a first for Slater, she admitted she had some experience with piggies. "I rode a hog when I was 10 years old," she said. "I was in a hog-catching contest. I caught a hog and got on it A guy smacked the hog on the behind and it took off. We^went about 10 feet." Yesterdajr's contest was h^ among other fidr favorites, like the pie-eating contest, garden tractor pull and (See FAIR, Page A16) 8iÉMN}|iy • oí J^ÏO^fîO nwmawwn Alllìfll^ By Paul W. eUMpie—The Captai NlehofaM Carleo, 10, of DavWMnvflle, balta out hia baat "aooay" Mni tha ho^calllng coRlaat at tha Aima Anindal County FWr vaatanlay.

Rut bringing bucks, does into roadways Officials warn of increased deer activity as mating season begins By HEATHER RAWLYK Staff Writer It's a rut no driver wants to get into. You're traveling down a bade road, a highway or neighborhood street and — oh deer — a buck firolics in flront of your car. It happens year-round. But with mating season beginning this month, lovesick deer will be darting across roadways tenfold in the coming weeks — putting themselves and motorists in danger, authorities warn. Last wedcend a motorcyclist died after crashing into a car that had braked to avoid hitting a deer in Glen Bumie. State Ei^way Administration a^ Maryland Department of Natural Resources officials are warning motorists to be alert while navigating county roads, especially between sunset and sunrise. Maiyland deer typically mate in early November, a peak period known as "the rut" But breeding behavior can start as early as mid-September, when soma bucks shed the velvet off their antlers. "Deer live by their noses," said George llmko, the assistant deer project leader iter the litoyland Department of Natural Resources. "It's how they find food, detect dan: ger and pick up the scent of a doe in heat" Wooded ar^ around the county turn into "sinsJes bars" for deer during the rut. Timko said. (See DBIR.
