A panel of advisers to an established senior center on the edge of Mount Vernon is protesting a proposal to lease space in its city-owned building to Baltimore's gay community center. The Waxter Center Advisory Council fears younger patrons of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center of Baltimore could disturb older patrons of the building's senior center, which has been in operation for nearly 40 years, said Lester Buster, president of the advisory council. "We just don't know whether or not that will be a good mix," said Buster, 79, of West Baltimore.

In spite of a few jokes about walkers and such that you had to expect, there was a good discussion on a post on my blog Dining@Large (baltimoresun.com/diningatlarge) about what 35-and-overs want in a happy hour. One of the main things, after meeting other 35-and-overs, was the chance to talk without being drowned out by loud music or TVs. The following is my list of places, in alphabetical order, with a little bit of information to let you know what's available there. (Specials are offered weeknights only, unless otherwise noted.

WASHINGTON - Al Gore was not among the boys at St. Albans school dubbed "the Mocksters," the young men who posed in 1965 for their senior high school yearbook picture in nerdy glasses and bow ties to subtly poke fun at academia for posterity. Instead, young Gore sits in the front row for the picture with a straight tie and a world of gravitas. If the Mocksters needed inspiration, they only needed to visit another exclusive prep school - Andover, the Massachusetts academy where a year earlier a senior named George W. Bush was earning his nickname, "Lip."

Andover's former 6-foot-9 star, Steve Stielper scored 1,502 in his three-year career (1973-76), including a county record 892 in the 1975-76 season.Stielper's 33.4 points per game stands as the county standard. The late James "Manpoo" Butler came the closest to Stielper with his 30.9 average in 1985-1986 for Annapolis.

Howard County, with the smallest percentage of senior citizens in the state, is poised for an explosion of new homes for retirees. That's because builders realize that the county is on the edge of a dizzying upsurge in the senior population. Developers are in the midst of finishing one "active adult" neighborhood, have county approval for four more projects and have proposed at least six others. All told, the plans would add about 1,400 houses, townhouses and apartments for seniors to the county's landscape.
