Elk could once again roam the forests of western Maryland — unless citizens say no way in a survey beginning next month.
Elk are big. Females reach 500 pounds; males, which grow the towering antlers, get up to 700 pounds. They’re herbivores, but it takes a large range to feed the appetites of creatures so big. Thus farmers worry about their crops.
Meryl Streep is all teeth, no bite, in this boring biopic
What do you do when you’re making a movie about a political figure whose politics you don’t agree with? Avoid the subject, cast Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher and give her an immense set of dentures. The formula worked. Streep and her dentures just took home a Golden Globe.
The teeth are right. But the rest of the film is all wrong.
Ye gads it’s been a difficult winter!
Today it’s bitter cold and windy, and the long-range forecast looks like a lot more of the same, except for the charming likelihood of a few days of freezing rain. With two of my offspring still in college, there is no fiscal possibility of escaping to the tropics.
In our Mission Statement, Bay Weekly eschews doom-and-gloom news and commits to a world where people enjoy a high quality of life in a sustainable way that they’ll be able to hand down for generations to come.
So why are we writing about bedbugs?

At historic Linden House, the buildings have a lot to say
Once upon a time, just about everything on the table was home-grown. To eat, you needed to keep chickens for meat and eggs. Cows for milk, butter and cheese. Livestock was raised, butchered and preserved.
You’ll have to think outside the apartment to solve Bowie Community Theatre’s mystery
Bowie Community Theatre takes you through so many twists and turns in Murder by Misadventure that trying to keep up could be hazardous to your health.
With only four characters and one the police inspector, the 50-50 chance of guessing the murderer could have killed the mystery before final curtain.
It survives — though not all the characters do.
Americans have a thing for lawlessness.
If we had a mantra, it might go something like this: The fewer laws the better — except as they benefit us personally.
From the Pilgrims, Conquistadors and New Dutch to explorers, pioneers and cowboys — not to mention robber barons — we’ve made our own laws.
The waning moon rises before midnight Thursday and Friday, with ruddy Mars just a few degrees above. They are high in the south by 4am and in the southwest at dawn.
Monday’s last-quarter moon rises after midnight, just a couple degrees below the bright star Spica. Golden Saturn trails a few degrees to the moon’s east, with the three forming a tight triangle.
Grass beds survived storm to welcome waterfowl, Bay babies
Housing stock is on the rise for the young fish and crabs who’ll be sheltering at the top of the Bay come spring. The vast grass-filled Susquehanna Flats, the circular area where the Susquehanna River meets the Bay, appeared unexpectedly healthy in aerial survey images made late last year.
The valuable Bay habitats seem to have survived fall 2011’s deluge of runoff and sediment.
