Families United by 8 Days a Week

Dear Bay Weekly:
Thank you for giving the Annapolis Chorale’s Sunday, February 6 concert with Sarah Blaskowsky such a prominent place in Bay Weekly’s calendar. Turns out that Sarah has cousins in Tracy’s Landing. They saw the picture and came to the event, so we had a little family reunion in addition to our event. Just goes to show how important those listings are.
—Katherine Hilton:

Director, Marketing and Development, Annapolis Chorale

Ruritans Clean up after Litterbugs

Dear Bay Weekly:
The Lothian Ruritan Club collected 27 large garbage bags of trash along a two-mile stretch on Route 2 between the traffic circle and Old Solomons Island Road on February 12. The last time this area was cleared of litter by the Lothian Ruritan Club was October, 2004. It is evident that Anne Arundel County has more than its fair share of litterbugs who have no respect for either public or private property. Normally the club is capable of collecting all of the trash between the traffic circle and Rt. 258, which is three miles, during the same period of time. Litterbugs cannot claim ignorance of the law because there are plenty of signs that clearly identify fines for littering. The items collected are a clear indication of carelessness and disrespect.

—Francis R. Gouin, Deale

Can’t Tell Our Aladdin from Beauty and the Beast

Dear Bay Weekly:
While I was reading Bay Weekly for the week of Feb. 10 to Feb. 16, I noticed that on page 13 in the article about love songs [“They’re Writing Songs about Love,” Vol. XIII, No. 6], that the number 10 song was “A Whole New World,” from Beauty and the Beast. “A Whole New World” was in the movie Aladdin, not Beauty and the Beast. Just thought I’d let you know!

—Hayley Marks, [email protected]

Editor’s note: Hayley should be on our proofreading staff. With writer Ted Daly, we trusted his source – a survey of disc jockeys — on the origin of the 10th most popular song at American weddings.

Department of Corrections
In last week’s music review, Battle of the Bands 2005 [Vol. XIII, No. 6: Feb. 10], the name of Old Mills High School’s battling band was misprinted. It is Twice Hitter.

Thanks from Mary Byrd Brown

Dear Bay Weekly:
I just want to thank you for the splendid support for the Mary Byrd Brown Project. Your plugs make a big difference for the shows, and your support inspires me to keep on healing and to get back to sharing my music with all of you beautiful souls again.

Thanks, too, for writer Ted Daly’s Valentine’s article [“They’re Writing Songs about Love,” Vol. XIII, No. 6: Feb. 10]. It was well written with an interesting twist.

Thanks for continuing to focus on what matters — Earth, Love, Spirit — and for building a strong sense of community.

—Mary Byrd Brown, Severna Park
