Where Do I Find Milkweed?        I really enjoyed your column and Ms. Barker Frankel’s article that I just read on monarchs in the paper of Sept. 13. We recently purchased property and have not seen any milkweed plants on it, which concerns me. In the past, our property used to be a tobacco farm and then morphed into a horse farm. I was wondering if you know of any local places that I could purchase native plants that you could recommend for monarchs.
More Pet Tales Please … And Wider Distribution       I liked your August 16 Pet Tales issue and would like to see more of them like this in the future.       I ran across this issue in one of my journeys and thought it was great and would like to know also how we could get these in our neighborhood as well. Also in Charles County. –Marvin Wells, Dundalk
Yours In Solidarity       Picked up my fav community paper, and the Labor Day lead caught my eye. Nice stories about folks who labor in many great industries, but I noticed no one was mentioned from organized labor groups.       It’s been many years (the late 1800s) when the idea took off for a holiday to honor unions pushed by organized labor. Details are probably sketchy about why we have that holiday now. It’s all about sales. LOL.

Activist Teens Are Organizing Against Gun Violence        At the March for Our Lives rally that I spearheaded this spring, I promised that I would not give up the fight to solve gun violence in our schools and our community. I’ve upheld that promise since, attending various town halls and speaking with politicians. On August 15, we went a step further by hosting a bipartisan roundtable to discuss school safety.  
Circulator and Shuttles Bring Mobility to Southern Anne Arundel County        On July 1, the Anne Arundel County Transportation Office launched two new transportation options to serve the south of the county: the South County Circulator and two Zonal Shuttles. This initiative was the result of dynamic collaboration between Ramond Robinson, head of the Transportation Office, and the South County Huddle, a local volunteer organization.

Farewell to a Legend: Michael Hosford

In the rich land that was the Annapolis restaurant scene in the 1970s, Michael Hosford was a legendary bartender, and his domain was the Maryland Inn. There are a few things you need to know about the Inn back then. The hotel housed The Treaty of Paris, a world-class restaurant, and two bars, The Drummer’s Lot and The King of France Tavern.

Seeing Turtles Re: I Know Why the turtle Crosses the Road: ­www.bayweekly.com/node/43504       Eastern box turtles and terrapins are not the only turtles among us. Snapping turtles are our neighbors, too, as witnessed by Dennis Distler and the folks at Annapolis Hyundai.
