Harford County:

You can sample plenty of seafood and traditional dishes, listen to live entertainment and view a variety of arts and crafts tomorrow and Sunday at the 12th annual Harford County Seafood Festival.

The event is scheduled from noon to 7 p.m. tomorrow and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday at Tydings Park in Havre de Grace.

While enjoying Maryland steamed crabs, crab cakes, and blackened red fish or such non-seasonal items as pit beef, sausage, and pasta salad, you'll also help raise money for the Harford County Education Association's scholarship fund.

Admission is $3 a day for ages 13 and older, and children with an adult are admitted free.

Howard County:

The Planning Board has approved a new gasoline station in Columbia, but split on recommending a variance needed to convert a Savage service station to a convenience store.

The board voted, 3-0, Tuesday to approve the use of a 1 1/2 -acre site at Minstrel Way and Snowden River Parkway in Owen Brown village for a gasoline station.

The Owen Brown village board members opposed the change. The village board cited traffic problems and what they considered a conflict with Columbia's plans.

Later, in a variance request, the trend of replacing service bays with convenience stores ran afoul of the Savage Community Association.

The board was split 2-2 on recommending that the county Board of Appeals approve Exxon Corp.'s request for a series of variances for a half-acre property at U.S. 1 and Howard Street.

A service station has been on the site for 20 years, but Exxon wants to rebuild the station with four pumps under a canopy, instead of the current six pumps.

The Savage association President Bill Waff said that was fine, but eliminating the service bays and building a convenience store would put mechanics out of work and draw business away from the Wawa store in downtown Savage.
