Your Good Story about Great Kids

Dear Bay Weekly:

Thank you so much for writing the story Planting a Young Forest [Vol xv, No 18: May 3]. Margaret Tearman’s method of using the kids to tell it was just great. The kids and the school are very excited about the coverage, and that will enhance the whole experience for them.

—Abby Ybarra, Chesapeake Beach

Editor’s note: Ybarra is the parent who worked with Mt. Harmony Elementary School teacher Judy Mansfield creating a planting project to teach second graders why and how to protect their world.

Scenic Rivers Land Trust’s Long

Walk to 1,450 Acres

Dear Bay Weekly:

On behalf of the Scenic Rivers Land Trust we thank Bay Weekly and Carrie Madren for help in promoting Walk for the Woods 2007. This year’s walk benefited from increased sponsorships and hosted five times more participants than in the past — all concerned about preservation of fields, wetland and woods of Anne Arundel County. A highlight of the event for many there was to be among the first to experience the beauty of the recently protected Crownsville property.

Scenic Rivers Land Trust has protected over 1,450 acres in the Severn, South, West, Patuxent and Rhode rivers watersheds through voluntary conservation agreements. We appreciate the support of local media that has helped us with outreach to local landowners to promote private land protection and to help educate the citizens of our county about the ecology of our watershed.

As we work to care for our undeveloped lands and educate businesses and landowners about voluntary conservation techniques, we recognize how fortunate we are to have your support. Thank you for your help with this event and the great job you do reporting on the Chesapeake Bay and its communities.

–Cliff Andrew, President of the Board,

Jennifer Rucker Troy, Chairperson, Walk for the Woods

Village of Friendship Open During Circle Construction

Dear Bay Weekly:

Construction of Friendship Circle is expected to take up to four months and will block access to the Friendship United Methodist Church, Post Office, Magnolia Shoppe and Fabulous Brew Cafe from Rt. 2. Worship and all other activities at the church will take place as usual, and the businesses remain open during the construction of a new traffic circle at the intersection of Maryland Route 2 and Friendship-Sansbury roads, one and one-third miles north of the Calvert-Anne Arundel county line.

They can still be reached from north and south by a slight detour via Route 778 or from the Twin Beach and Rose Haven areas via Rt. 261, Friendship Road.

—Jay Lounsbury, for the Friendship
