There's a fun new neighbor at Harborplace. Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. moved into the Light Street Pavilion in May, and the old mall, which had been looking down in the mouth, feels lively again — like a place people might actually have chosen to visit. Founded in Monterey, Calif., in 1996, the chain of casual seafood restaurants was inspired by a shrimp-loving character in the movie "Forrest Gump. " The Bubba Gump menu is packed with shrimp dishes, and the decor of a typical Bubba Gump restaurant is meant to suggest the waterside shrimp restaurant that the characters in the movie might have opened.

Bubba, the Anne Arundel County police dog who assisted in more than 100 arrests during 11 years of service, died over the weekend after a long bout with cancer. The German shepherd made headlines for helping apprehend thieves and purse-snatchers. But his friendly way with others made him so popular that hundreds of people chipped in to pay for his medical treatment. "It was his personality that made him," said Cpl. Keith Baumann, Bubba's handler. "He was so social and friendly with people."

"I got all my country learnin' milkin' and a churnin', pickin' cotton, raisin' hell and bailin' hay." -- Singer Billy Joe ShaverPOOR OLD BUBBA. He's in a heap of hurt. The TV boys canceled "Dukes of Hazzard," and now there's nothing to watch except shows about a scrawny female lawyer and city kids who don't have jobs and, for fun, drink coffee. Sure, there's wrestling on cable, but the plot is no better than "Baywatch" -- all meat and no potatoes.Now Bubba-land, the South, is no longer the South -- at least not in the ways that count to Bubba.

ANNAPOLIS - Spring at the Naval Academy, and a plebe's affections turn to Calculus II and 200-meter swims leisurely performed in five mandatory minutes. Spring, and Bubba McKinney is still the laid-back brother. His twin, Scotch, is now the one on the Supe's List."That's how you can tell us apart," Scotch, born Scott McKinney, says. Supe's List is Navy slang for the Superintendent's List, meaning a midshipman has at least a 3.4 grade point average (out of 4.0) and a sea of A's in military performance, conduct and physical education.

WHEN GERALDINE Burkett took her Chihuahua to the veterinarian last fall, her heart was touched by a picture of a beautiful German shepherd named Bubba, a police dog in the county Police Department's K-9 Unit. Bubba had cancer, and the county's budget allocation for police dogs did not include money for the cost of chemotherapy he needed to survive. The veterinarian was providing the treatments at cost, and animal lovers were being asked to help. Burkett put some money into the collection can and went home.

COLLEGE PARK -- For a few moments that his Maryland lacrosse teammates will savor forever, Brian Burlace stepped out of character and launched into a tirade.The burly senior defenseman stormed into the locker room with the Terps trailing Duke, 6-3, at halftime in their first-round NCAA tournament game Saturday night and hurled his helmet in anger. The normally reserved co-captain kicked at shoes in front of his locker, sending them clattering across the floor."I had never seen him like that," said Dave Willard, a senior midfielder and also a co-captain.

The Golf Boys finally got some much needed street cred. It was right before last year's U.S. Openwhen a bunch of young Americans who called themselves “The Golf Boys” took quite a bit of criticism for the silly video spoof they did. At a time when their European counterparts were dominating the sport - including a blowout victory by Rory McIlroy in the Open at Congressional - “The Golf Boys” seemed to lack style and substance....

I got the news in Florida this morning that Bubba Smith had died. I couldn't help but smile as I recalled a true story that happened while I still lived in Baltimore. My brother, Dr. I. Norton Brotman was a well known dentist in Baltimore - he was the Colts dentist in their heyday. He was instrumental in designing mouth guards for the team as well as caring for any dental problems that arose. My father, Dr. Robert H. Brotman, also a well known dentist in Baltimore, received a phone call one Sunday, and the male voice asked for Bubba.

Bubba Smith, the fearsome defensive end who played five seasons for the Baltimore Colts and helped them to victory in Super Bowl V in January 1971, was the very definition of a larger-than-life figure. A 6-foot-7, 250-pound All-American at Michigan State who prompted cries of "Kill, Bubba, Kill!" from Spartans fans, he was the No. 1 pick in the 1967 NFL draft and became a two-time Pro Bowl selection with the Colts before ending his injury-shortened career with the Oakland Raiders and Houston Oilers.

Without Phillips as the original Light Street Pavilion anchor, would Harborplace have been so successful? I don't think it would have. Phillips was the essential ingredient in the Harborplace stew, and even as local diners increasingly stayed away, the numbers, and profits, spoke for themselves. Phillips was a monster hit during those early years. Harborplace has changed, though, and Bubba Gump could turn out to be a more strategically attractive anchor restaurant for the Harborplace of today.

I've never been to a Bubba Gump Co. I've been reading some online reviews, and it sounds in general like Bubba Gump is better than people thought it was going to be. They have fun there. Not everyone agrees; people seldom do.    Forrest Gump Visits Bubba Gump Shrimp Co in Daytona Beach from SEE Coastal Media on Vimeo .   We can only realy agree that Bubba's "shrimp" speech in Forrest Gump is one of the most excruciating sequences in the history of cinema.

WHEN BILL CLINTON was chairman of the conservative DemocraticLeadership Conference, his biggest critic was Jesse Jackson, who thought he was too conservative. What irony then that it now appears that only black voters can save Governor Clinton's presidential campaign.Why? Because Clinton's support among white Southerners has fallen off due to his draft dodging. Georgia pollster Claiborne Darden says, "Clinton reminds me of a Civil War soldier with his stomach shot out, leaning up against a tree for days, waiting to die."

That didn't take long. The anchor restaurant space in Harborplace's Light Street Pavilion that for 31 years was home to Phillips has a new tenant.
