Shooting on yet another John Waters film was coming to an end last week, so it was essential that Bob Adams make it to the set of "Cecil B. Demented" before the final wrap. He had presents to deliver.Adams is a card-carrying member of the original Dreamland Players, the group of eccentrics who helped Waters create his first guerrilla films more than a quarter century ago and who have remained fiercely connected ever since. Every Waters film doubles as a reunion for the Dreamlanders, who often marvel over how seminal has been their association with the filmmaker.

As Election Day nears, the piles of illegally placed political signs are growing at Howard County's three highway maintenance yards. "This [year] has been the worst it's ever been. I don't know why people spend so much money," said James M. Irvin, the county public works director. Virtually every candidate is represented, from County Executive James N. Robey, a Democrat, and Steven H. Adler, his Republican opponent, to lightly funded school board candidate Barry Tevelow. Election signs are prohibited on public property of any kind, including road rights of way. Of course, Republicans tend only to see illegal Democratic signs, and vice versa, and candidates say they never place signs in road rights of way. Only over-exuberant volunteers do that.

Competition among Republicans seeking to serve the final year of departing state Sen. Martin G. Madden's term melted away yesterday, leaving Sandra Schrader as the heir-apparent. "I think the consensus rapidly built that Sandy is the best person for the Senate seat. She has a record of tremendous service, and she's an educator," Madden said, referring to Schrader's years of substitute teaching. Madden, who represents southeastern Howard and the Laurel area of Prince George's County, has said he will resign his seat Jan. 7 to return to private business.
