Hampton "Skip" Auld does not mince words when he talks about the struggles of Anne Arundel County's library system the past few years. "We were devastated," the library director says. "We were on the ropes. " Years of government cuts during an economic downturn took its toll on the libraries. There was less money to buy new books, audio books and DVDs. Magazine subscriptions were canceled. Sunday hours were cut. Employees had no raises. During those years, Auld spearheaded a cheery but relentless campaign on the library's behalf.

Facing the prospect of more cutbacks in library hours and other declines, Anne Arundel County Public Library administrator Hampton "Skip" Auld is taking a page from other services clamoring for scarce county dollars. Auld is turning to the community for support, seeking to energize library patrons in much the same way that public schools have turned parents into lobbyists. He is hoping that a public outcry will pressure elected officials to keep reductions in the library budget well below the 10 percent that County Executive John R. Leopold has asked of each agency.

Slavery haunts us. It lurks in the shadows of our conscience, emerging only for painful confrontations in a museum or occasional book. Otherwise, we exorcise it from our memories. Sometimes, we do both at once; witness what recently happened to two infamous slave houses in Maryland. One was the home of Josiah Henson, a slave whose story was the basis for Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe. The book so ignited anti-slavery passion in the North that Abraham Lincoln greeted the author by saying, "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war."

Sometime during the late 1960s, while making a cameo appearance on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, bandleader Guy Lombardo - who was known as "Mr. New Year's Eve" - stared into the camera and said, "When I die, I'm taking New Year's Eve with me." Well, almost. Even though Dick Clark replaced Lombardo with his New Year's Eve broadcasts, people still think of the great bandleader as the old year yields to the new. And more than likely on New Year's Eve, you heard a recording of Lombardo and his Royal Canadians playing their signature vibrato saxophone rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" at the stroke of midnight.

The great-great-grandson of Frederick Douglass and a descendant of the man who owned the abolitionist met yesterday on the gun deck of the Constellation, a ship that patrolled the coast of Africa to stop slavers in the early 1800s. Frederick Douglass IV, dressed in cutaway coat and stovepipe hat, was portraying his ancestor in a Black History Month program on the ship, docked at the Inner Harbor. He spoke of the "conflicted economics" of the 1800s that allowed a slave to become a ship's captain because his owner would get all the money, but kept some free whites out of that job. And he told of Hugh and Sophia Auld, brother and the sister-in-law of the elder Douglass' owner, Thomas Auld.

Millions celebrate arrival of the New Year with bells and whistles, songs and sirens, bursting fireworks and even blasting firearms. But on Navy and Coast Guard ships and at onshore stations around the world, seamen standing the lonely midnight to 4 o'clock mid-watch will mark the arrival of 2002 with ... poetry. On New Year's morning, the Officer of the Deck - or of the Day if he or she is ashore - traditionally writes the mid-watch log entry in verse. "But some are verse than others," observed a seaman aboard the USS Rainier off Vietnam on Jan. 1, 1969.
