New development's name to honor Annapolis history Madison Homes has chosen a name for its Annapolis development on the downtown site of Anne Arundel Medical Center: Acton's Landing. Through historical research, the company said, it learned from a 1651 land survey that the site had been known as "Acton's Land" and was the property of Richard Acton, one of the first three known landowners on the Annapolis peninsula. "We believe the new name is an appropriate tribute to the original landowner," said Russell Rosenberger, president of Madison Homes, which plans to develop a community of single-family and duplex homes, townhouses and condominiums, along with a neighborhood park at the Acton Cove waterfront near Charles and Shaw streets.

In the overwrought production of Hamlet at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre, Hamlet's mother's bedchamber is completely encircled by sheer red curtains, and her bed is covered in red velvet. When Hamlet slays the old councilor, Polonius, who is hiding behind the curtains, the drapery cascades onto his corpse like an enormous pool of blood, and the murder is accompanied by a shrieking Psycho-like chord. Subtlety is not a hallmark of Australian director Gale Edwards' production, or of Wallace Acton's portrayal of the title character.
