Keeping up with Local Theater

Dear Bay Weekly:
Thank you Bay Weekly for your excellent article on the theater companies of the Bay area [Carrie Steele’s “The Curtain Rises,” Vol. XII, No. 37: Sept. 9]. We of the acting community appreciate your continuing coverage and well-written reviews that inform the public of what is available to see. I had, myself, no idea how much theater was in the area. And it was a great treat to read what other theater companies are doing to keep the Bay area enriched with entertainment.

—Sid Curl, Chesapeake Beach


Dear Bay Weekly:
I am writing about your non-endorsing editorial “Listen Up to the Presidential Debates,” on page 3 of the September 30 edition [Vol. XII, No 40].

It is imperative to remember that all our Chesapeake Bay environmental concerns and rising living costs won’t matter if we are not safe. I, too, love our Bay and its beauty and boating and, as a retiree, I am mindful of the rising costs of living. But if terrorists come back to our shores, costs will skyrocket in all areas of life in the aftermath for those of us left alive.

—Barbara G. Reynolds, Riva

Our Wait Was Worthwhile

Dear Bay Weekly:
My children, my mother and I attended the rally for the Vice Presidential candidate, Sen. John Edwards, at Anne Arundel Community College. It was a thrill for my daughter and I, who are both graduates of the community college, to have Edwards come to our college. My 75-year-old mother was energized by the rally. As a child in Italy she was forced to go to rallies and sing the praises of Mussolini. Now as a United States citizen she is free and happy to chant with Edwards that “hope is on the way.”

—Ann Amalia Dean, Severna Park

Send Maryland Postcards to Wisconsin Fourth Graders

Dear Bay Weekly:
Our fourth grade class is currently studying the regions of the United States. We are learning about each state and its environment, landforms and special places of interest.

We are asking for your help. We would like people to send us postcards that show us what your state is like. This would give us the opportunity to get a closer look at your state of Maryland. If you would like to write a note on back we would appreciate it. Thank you for helping us make learning a fun and rewarding experience. We appreciate your help.

Send postcards C/O Peshtigo Elementary Learning Center; 341 N. Emery Ave.; Peshtigo, WI 54157.

—Haley Bouche’s fourth grade class, Peshtigo, Wisconsin
