When eight high school students are commissioned to make a graphic novel about sexual health, don't be surprised if the result includes pet dragons, a troll with genital warts and a guy named Funk Master Flexin'. These comedic touches appear in a booklet created during a six-week summer program for students at the Baltimore City Health Department that aims to raise awareness about sexual health and the department's relocated young adult center in Druid Hill. Meeting twice a week beginning July 8, the students were asked to write, photograph, draw, scan and digitally edit three stories about sexually transmitted diseases and birth control, and assemble them in a booklet.

Homebuyers concerned about environmental hazards can get some guidance from a booklet published by California Realtors."Environmental Hazards: A Guide for Homeowners and Buyers," published in a question-and-answer format, offers some insight into the primary hazards -- asbestos, formaldehyde, lead, radon and toxic wastes.The 47-page booklet is far from comprehensive. Much of its space is devoted to lists of phone numbers, agencies and titles of other printed materials on the subject.But Michael Lyon, president of the Sacramento Association of Realtors, says the booklet "educates buyers about a field where more knowledge is needed."

A Roland Park resident has created a "passport" to Druid Hill Park. Janet Felsten, founder and director of the nonprofit group Baltimore Green Map, introduced the green-colored passport April 19 at a Baltimore Green Week kickoff party in the conservatory. Felsten said she created the 20-page, passport-shaped booklet on cover stock paper as a companion to a detailed map of Druid Hill Park that she made in 2010. The purpose of the map and the new passport is partly to point out places of interest in the 745-acre park, which is home to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, Druid Lake and the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens, among other attractions.

Time for bits and pieces, items of information that don't fall into any particular category but are still nice to know about.Neat printer tricks: I'm a sucker for software that lets you do cool things with your printer. This one came along just a few weeks before the PTA asked me to design an eight-page program for my son Ben's graduation exercises.Projects like these aren't as easy as you might think if you're using standard word processing software, because a graduation program, like any booklet, requires that you figure out which page is going where when everything gets folded over.

Bob Parsons , the Baltimore native and GoDaddy.com CEO, has known for a long time that sex sells. His racy Super Bowl ads have helped his company become the biggest registrar, by far, of Internet domain names. And now he knows what unsells: dead elephants. Parsons posted a video of himself shooting an elephant in Zimbabwe. Parsons said he was doing villagers a favor, saving them from elephants that are trampling crops. Since then, he's taken heat for reasons obvious (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which sent him its "first-ever Scummiest CEO of the Year Award," said there are more humane ways to control problem pachyderms)

Alvin Berman was leafing through a Maryland tax booklet the other day when a notice caught his eye. It said ground rents must be registered by Sept. 30, 2011. The Randallstown man, who was told when he tried to register his one ground lease last fall that he was a week late, called the state Department of Assessments and Taxation to ask whether the state had extended the registration period. It hadn't. The 400,000 state tax booklets for 2010 and the online version list the wrong date, acknowledge officials in both the assessment and comptroller's offices.

Maryland has quietly stopped its longstanding practice of allowing teachers to review test booklets up to two weeks before its annual reading and math examinations were given. State officials said they changed the practice before this year's Maryland School Assessments after questions arose about whether teachers were reviewing the test for content, which would not be an appropriate use of the booklets. The change, state officials contend, has had no effect on test results and was not made in relation to the testing scandal at George Washington Elementary School in Baltimore that came to light earlier this year.

City and state education officials have uncovered widespread cheating on state tests at a Southwest Baltimore elementary school once held up as an example of against-the-odds achievement and have recently revoked the professional license of the principal, whom they are holding responsible. Investigators reviewed hundreds of Maryland State Assessment booklets at George Washington Elementary and found thousands of erasure marks. In nearly all instances, the answers were changed from wrong to right.

Feeling confused about BRAC? The logistical, financial and political machinations surrounding the national military base realignment and closure process are complicated enough. But throw in the acronym-steeped terminology government officials use and it's enough to make an average citizen's head spin. For example, someone who states that "DBED told CSSC that BRAC will send C4ISR jobs to APG and DISA jobs to FGGM" is sure to leave the listener flummoxed. But not to worry. CSSC - that's the Chesapeake Science and Security Corridor - has published "BRACANYMS," a booklet intended to bring linguistic clarity to BRAC discourse.

The latest version of the Maryland Bay Game, a staple of summer beach trips for nearly a decade, makes its debut today. The game, which features puzzles, trivia questions, and photos of bay icons, is produced by the state Department of Natural Resources. In the past, the booklet was available to all vehicles crossing the Bay Bridge. But because so many families are now using E-Z Pass and not stopping at the toll booth, agency officials decided this year to make the game available in all state libraries, a DNR spokesman said.

Last year I reviewed a publication from the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation that dealt with what I believe will be a critical issue for nonprofits in the next decade -- collaboration. If nonprofits are to flourish, they will need to find innovative, creative solutions to intractable problems. That calls for strategic partnerships, in which each player adds targeted strengths to the equation.The Wilder Foundation's booklet was both thoughtful and comprehensive and reflected a commitment to high quality.
