As a gardener, I love raising plants. As a father, I love raising a family. Sometimes my passions collide, creating an awful mess. What is best for the garden is not always best for the family, and I am forced to choose between them.These are trying times indeed.For instance, the 40-foot silver maple tree in our back yard has got to go. The tree's canopy already shades much of the vegetable patch; its roots penetrate my best soil.Besides, we've run out of firewood.I have been lobbying for years to ax the tree.

Beth Tfiloh baseball coach Jeff Lowe believed his team was playoff-caliber last season. A few mistakes late in the schedule, though, cost the Warriors a spot in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference playoffs. "I think that we underachieved toward the end," Lowe said. "I thought we gave games away with mental mistakes, but I think that this year we would have competed very well." Beth Tfiloh, now in the C Conference, has managed to limit such mistakes this time.

NOSTALGIA REIGNED supreme at the recent Art Garfunkel concert at Beth Tfiloh on Old Court Road. According to Rabbi Michael Meyerstein, "It was fuzzy, feel-good music, and most people seemed to enjoy it."Certainly the Garfunkel groupies who attended in their flower-child garb, armed with old record albums, were not disappointed. The music and the large, vinyl, shiny, neon-colored flowers decorated with the faces of Beth Tfiloh school students were pure '60s.And it seemed everyone was on their feet when Garfunkel sang old favorites "Sounds of Silence," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Mrs.

Relax everyone, Tara is OK. She was hiding in a cage at the prison. Daryl, Carol, Glenn, Maggie, Beth, Tyreese, Judith, Lizzie and Mika are all OK, too. Last week's midseason premiere followed the path of Rick and Carl as they got their wits about them after the fall of the prison, and also Michonne as she had a vision quest. This week's episode, ironically called "Inmates," caught up with everyone else, so it was good for those of you with limited attention spans. We first see that Daryl and Beth are OK, so I'm sure all of the ladies out there had a big sigh of relief when they saw that that big hunk Daryl was still alive!

Rabbi Daniel Plotkin was in the marching band at the University of Wisconsin and one of his highlights came when the football team took part in the Rose Bowl parade in 1994 - the school's first appearance in the game in 31 years. When Plotkin became the rabbi at Beth Shalom in Columbia less than three years ago, he soon learned of several other congregants with dormant musical backgrounds but no outlet to keep sharp or exhibit their skills. With the assistance of Steve Cohen, who joined the congregation in 2005, Plotkin created Divine Intervention, an eclectic mix of musicians who held An Evening at the Coffee House on Jan. 25 as a fundraiser for Beth Shalom.
