Dear Bay Weekly:     Great article on us at PLB Comics [May 12: Putting Ink to Paper:].     Also a fantastic job on the article about Free Comic Book Day at Capital (Billy is the man!), Third Eye and Twilight Zone [The Comic Crusaders]. Thank you for contributing to giving the comics industry the good name it deserves!
Dear Bay Weekly:     I’m closing Main Street Gallery before long and want to thank you for the amazingly generous and steadfast support you have showered upon us. It has been 20 years of fun and adventure, but now I want my house back!     We’ll be doing smaller, more intimate affairs now and then; high on the list will be open-studio play dates featuring Parran Collery’s tiles (and sangria).
Dear Bay Weekly:     A friend and colleague from Missouri recently visited the area and brought her family. They made a special trip to the Calvert Marine Museum because of her young son’s interest in paleontology. Her son, Ben, had seen Dr. Stephen Godfrey featured in a National Geographic Prehistoric Predators special on Megalodon Sharks. The family was pleased that Dr. Godfrey agreed to meet five-year-old Ben and give him a special tour of the Calvert Marine Museum. Godfrey met them at the door and gave the family an unforgettable experience.
Be Kind to Animals Week is May 1-7, and it’s the perfect time to encourage the young animal lovers in your life to put their compassion into action. Relating to animals’ feelings helps kids develop empathy and grow into responsible, caring citizens.
On Saturday, April 30, 260 volunteers from Chesapeake Christian Fellowship in Davidsonville put their love into action. From West River to Pasadena, 520 hands were busy building ramps, replacing floors and roofs, painting walls, clearing wooded areas, mulching, weeding and planting.
Dear Bay Weekly:     Thank you for Heather Boughey’s great article about the Maryland Park Service’s Park Quest program in Bay Weekly’s April 14 edition [].     Her first-person adventures as part of Team Bay Bougheys showcase the fun, excitement and outdoor challenges that other families experienced last summer during Park Quest. We look forward to reading about Team Bay Bougheys’ adventures again this year on our Facebook site — with more family photos as well.
Dear Bay Weekly:     I enjoyed reading Peggy Traband’s story about Mr. Owl [Creature Feature, April 14:], who was rescued from Sudwell-Nutley Rd. I was sorry to learn he did not survive, despite the work of the Davidsonville Wildlife Rehabilitation Center [Correspondence, April 21:]. I sent the story to my daughter, a senior at Cornell University, who is studying to be a rehabilitator. –Weems Duvall, Churchton
Dear Bay Weekly:     Our March 15 article on Friendship United Methodist Church Sunday schoolers raising enough money to buy two pregnant cows, through Heifer International, for impoverished Third World families, has gotten a lot of attention on the church bulletin board and in our Sunday bulletin. Pastor Byron Brought — who dressed up as a cow to celebrate the achievement — has mentioned it and the donation at least twice from the pulpit.
Dear Bay Weekly:     Join us in celebrating Earth Day on Friday, April 22, from 4 to 8pm. You’ll meet an oyster rancher, paddle a kayak, spin wool, listen to music and a nature reading and drink some slack wine.     At the 7:30pm closing ceremony at sunset, we’ll gather on a spot overlooking the St. Mary’s River, and I’ll read The Journey, a reflection that begins …     When the sun sets on my river, and the wings of gulls turn to white gold …
Dear Bay Weekly:     I want to congratulate both you and Margaret Tearman for her excellent article on Pepco’s Mid-Atlantic Power Pathway MAPP Project on April 7.     The article covered a complex topic in a very readable way and in a fair, balanced manner.     It is a public service when an article like Margaret’s informs the public accurately about a topic that generates a lot of fear and concern and that involves high stakes. –Susan Shaw, President: Calvert County Commissioners
