Very important pets and vets follow Kim Hammond


April 02, 1993|By SYLVIA BADGER

Dr. Kim Hammond, owner of Falls Road Animal Hospital, may not be an FOB (as in Friend of Bill Clinton), but he definitely has friends in high places. The newest addition to his veterinary staff is Dr. Paula Bumpers, niece of Arkansas Sen. Dale Bumpers. When she's not working at the hospital, you'll find her at Baltimore Board Sailing, where she teaches roller blading.

And if that's not enough, tune in to WBAL-TV's Saturday news show tomorrow at 9:15 a.m., when Hammond will be talking about Jack Russell terriers.

Appearing with him will be a terrier pup that belongs to Kevin and Chris Leahy, given to Chris by her father-in-law, Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy. (They refer to the puppy as the senator's grand-dog.)

What's next for Hammond? Perhaps he's hoping to become an FOS

(Friend of Socks)?

Two Ellicott City entrepreneurs Kara Brook and Kathleen Case, Case/Brook publishing, were the keynote speakers at the first annual Carroll County Fair last Sunday.

They talked about the social, political and literary contributions made by Clara Barton, Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton, Gertrude Stein, Barbara Fritchie, Sophie Kerr, Harriet Tubman, Anna Ella Carroll, Mary Pickersgill and Mary Lemist Titcomb.

These are the women featured in the Maryland state poster, "Maryland Women and their Historic Handiwork," which was conceived and designed by Brook and Case.


I'm told that internationally renowned flute player Jean-Pierre Rampal put on an unforgettable performance at the Rosenberg Recital at Goucher College March 26.

But it wasn't just his music the audience will remember; it was his unfortunate display of temper.

Rampal stopped his recital to upbraid a mother whose child was asleep in the front row. He told the startled woman that she

should have sat in the back row.

He then explained to the audience that the sight of the sleeping child was distracting to him while he was playing.


Around town:

Before Ross Perot arrived at the Convention Center Wednesday to talk to those attending the American Society of Newspaper

Editors convention, he made a stop at the Lord

Baltimore Hotel.

As he wandered through the hotel, he explained that he had such wonderful memories of the Lord Baltimore, where he'd stayed about 40 years ago, that he wanted to see the place again . . .
