YOUNG ARTISTS at Forest Ridge Elementary School have been showing their work far from home.

The art of Kellen McKay, Kevin Li, Aaron Foster, Alex Fleming, Katie Lugo and Rebecca Lee was on display as part of an exhibit, "Artist's Window," sponsored by the Howard County school system, at Chatham Mall on U.S. 40 in Ellicott City. The art is now being returned to the youngsters. Senior line dancing

The Savage Senior Center keeps getting busier.

The newest class begins Wednesday, when you can learn to line dance from 11 a.m. to noon.

It's a great way to get a little exercise, listen to country music and get ready to shine on the dance floor this holiday season.

Lunch is served afterward, so those who have worked up an appetite can sit down to a nourishing meal.
