I'm a sucker for cocktail names. The more obscure, random or puzzling, the better. Like "Bramble. " I've noticed it on several drink menus across Baltimore this summer and finally found one worth ordering — the Bramble On at the Nickel Taphouse in Mount Washington. It turns out the Bramble has a pretty storied history. One might even call it a modern classic. "The Bramble was — and still is — a cocktail that was popular in England in the 1980s. Basically, it's a gin sour with blackberry liqueur.

First Maryland Bancorp unveiled an overhaul of its executive ranks yesterday, the first step in a campaign by its new chief executive to improve stagnant profits at the state's second-largest banking company.The changes, announced by President and Chief Executive Officer Frank P. Bramble Sr., amount to a reorganized team of starting players, including a handful of recruits from Mr. Bramble's former employer, and a new corporate structure mirroring the one he created at MNC Financial Inc.Among the priorities at the parent of First National Bank of Maryland are to increase profits by cutting operating costs, to expand retail lending, and to enhance First Maryland's presence in the Washington area, Mr. Bramble said.

Frank P. Bramble Sr. may never again hear the satisfying swish of a basketball falling through a hoop, except in driveway games with his children. And he may not be able to recapture the minor glories of high school, where he was team captain, and college -- which in some ways are more important to him than his leadership of Maryland's largest banking company.But at least he hasn't forgotten the on-court leadership skills that helped him rise from C&P coin collector to the helm of MNC Financial Inc.Those skills include an appreciation for teamwork, an appealing personality and an unusual ability to be in the right place at the right time.

Between the muck and the poison ivy, interest was scant in the Olde Severna Park community in exploring the soggy area along Sullivan Cove that was hidden by dense bramble. But treks in recent weeks have revealed the site is a bog - an unusual type of wetland characterized by wobbling mats of peat floating on cold, clear water. The water level barely changes despite the season. Maryland environmental officials are recommending adding the discovery to a regulated list of Wetlands of Special State Concern, giving it additional protections, said Kim Lamphier, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of the Environment.

TRAPPE -- For 30 years in a converted garage at a crossroads about halfway between Trappe and Easton, William Woodrow "Woody" Bramble Jr. has been doing the dirty work for Eastern Shore hunters. Right now, they are bringing geese to Bramble's Waterfowl Cleaning Service to be plucked, cleaned and bagged -sometimes all in less than 30 minutes - and made ready for the oven or freezer. When it comes to his rather messy craft, Bramble is downright blase. Livers and other slimy innards, assorted webbed feet and wings don't faze him. Feathers?

As Steve Kruskamp Jr. can tell you, getting fired is not the end of the line. Even though he was the second contestant booted last year from Towson University's knockoff of The Apprentice, Kruskamp got another chance. First Mariner Bank Chairman Edwin F. Hale Sr., playing the Donald Trump role in the campus contest without the cameras, was so impressed with Kruskamp that the Baltimore executive rehired him. Unlike the cutthroat competition featured on the television show, the university's production showed that winning may not be everything in the business world.

BEULAH - Dorchester County officials are considering a plan that could make this tiny crossroads the dump site for as much as 600 tons of outside trash every day - a move that critics say would clog rural Eastern Shore roads with convoys of garbage trucks and leave an uncertain environmental legacy. The five-member County Council is reviewing bids from four unnamed companies interested in running the county's 300-acre landfill in exchange for fees paid by haulers bringing refuse from communities where landfill space is scarce.

When the Maryland Racing Commission convenes today to consider the most recent delay in the reopening of Laurel Park, two new commissioners will offer perspective from widely varying viewpoints. David Clogg, 57, a financial adviser, brings to the nine-member commission a background in harness racing. He has owned standardbreds and competed as an amateur driver. David Bramble, 28, a lawyer, brings to the board a background unlike any of his new colleagues, who own horses or have some other close connection to the sport.
