See More Boats at Capt. Avery House

Dear New Bay Times~Weekly:

We cannot adequately express our delight at seeing the photographs of our model boat show at the Capt. Salem Avery House Museum on the front page, then turning to the well-written story by talented M.L. Faunce. Thank you so very much.

With your vast readership, we are certain we will have increased attendance at our exhibit, which continues on Sundays from 1 to 4pm through October 25.

We appreciate the support you and your staff always give to our museum and the events we sponsor. We're an all-volunteer organization, and exposure such as your Sept. 24-30 issue is most encouraging.

-Mavis and George Daly, Co-Presidents, Shady Side Rural Heritage Society

Animal Lovers Vote Glendening

Dear New Bay Times~Weekly:

All animal lovers and those concerned about animal welfare have a duty to show their support by voting for Gov. Parris Glendening.

He is the only governor in the United States with enough courage to appoint an animal welfare advocate, Dr. Joseph Lamp, to a state wildlife advisory commission. In Maryland, this nine-member commission recommends policies to the Department of Natural Resources. Its members commonly speak out for the interests of a declining number of persons - less than 150,000 - who hunt, trap and kill animals in Maryland. Thanks to Governor Glendening, the animals now have a spokesperson for their interests, too.

Our governor has also saved Maryland's black bears from the bullets and arrows of persons wanting a hunting season. During a recent speech at the Humane Society of the United States, he explained that Maryland will continue to be a safe haven, and these beautiful bears will remain living treasures for all and not trophies on a hunter's wall.

Finally, his record is rock solid on protecting animals, and he wants to do much more. He has promised to appoint a task force to assess if Maryland's anti-cruelty laws are strong enough. This task force will be more important than ever before now that the horrors of pit-bull fighting in Maryland have been exposed and the link leading from cruelty to animals to cruelty to people is no longer in question.

We need a governor with his compassion, his dedication and his agenda to continue to work for change.

-Lou Sullivan Carter, President, SPCA of Anne Arundel County
