Moyer special aide to get preservation education award
Annapolis resident David P. Fogle, professor emeritus of architecture at University of Maryland, College Park and a special assistant to Mayor Ellen O. Moyer, has been selected to receive a lifetime achievement award for preservation education.
The award from the James Marston Fitch Charitable Foundation Inc. will be given by the National Council for Preservation Education at the National Trust for Historic Preservation's annual conference tomorrow in Denver. Moyer will speak.
Fitch, who established at Columbia University the first graduate program in historic preservation in the country, is a noted author and activist in the field of architecture and preservation.
Fogle helped found the University of Maryland's graduate program in historic preservation and was its director until his retirement in 1999.
Use licensed tree experts in storm cleanup, DNR says
As Maryland residents continue to clean up after Tropical Storm Isabel, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Forest Service advises that only licensed tree experts be used for post-storm tree care.
"During storms, some persons see a market opportunity in taking advantage of those in need by soliciting tree services door to door," said Michael Glavin, a Forest Service supervisor.
A licensed tree care provider is required for work on any live tree, including pruning, but a license is not required for tree removal.
All tree-care professionals practicing in Maryland must obtain licenses. Without a license, a tree service may not practice or advertise tree-care services in the state. A list of licensed tree experts can be found at the DNR Web site.
Promotions offered to ease congestion for boat shows
With two boat shows around the corner, the Annapolis Department of Transportation is offering promotions to relieve downtown traffic and parking congestion this month.
Boat-show visitors displaying a vendor badge, tickets for the day or a boat show wrist band to their bus drivers may ride free on Annapolis Transit.
A discounted purple boat show pass allows boaters, boat show workers, downtown employees, visitors and residents to ride Annapolis Transit buses as often as they want for $25 through Oct. 31.
Passes can be purchased at boat show offices, 601 Sixth St., the Department of Transportation, 308 Chinquapin Road, and the harbor Master's office at City Dock.
The Annapolis Transit state shuttle, which serves commuters on an express route to and from Church Circle, and the Navy Blue Shuttle serving the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium park-and-ride lot and downtown are always free.
