Maryland might not have the biggest presence at Thursday's Country Music Awards but its presence might be the best smelling. An Eldersburg candlemaker has been named the official candle of the CMAs. That means that when Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Kelly Clarkson leave the show, there's a very good chance they'll have a few Unwined Candles in their bags -- and a little bit of Maryland. "Best believe we have been putting in long hours making candle upon candle for all of our loyal and beloved customers as well as around 100 celebrities in Nashville," the little company wrote on its blog.

If there's strength in numbers, the New York Chamber Soloists are in great shape.

Kudos, once again, to Craig Witzke. I moved to Baltimore, 27 years ago, to start a distribution/construction business. By accident, I ended up living in Catonsville; it was the town at the end of I-70. I never regretted that decision. It is a wonderful community of which I am very proud to a member, even if I'm not really considered a Catonsvillian by some. I've never met anyone that cared for and did as much for Catonsville as Craig Witzke.  I am honored to have called him a friend for nearly 20 years.

The Laurel Mill Playhouse on Main Street seems to be getting the hang of stormy opening nights. But even Director Larry Simmons couldn't design as fitting an aura for the first showing of John Van Bruten's classic romantic comedy, "Bell, Book, and Candle," as the natural downpour opening night Oct. 11. Or, could he? A delightful story about witches, "Bell, Book, and Candle" debuted on Broadway in 1950. The play predates and influenced Sol Saks' well-known 1960s television show, "Bewitched.

In a recent letter to the editor, Charles Campbell rehashes tired talking points and cherry picks data to attack proven renewable energy sources like wind and solar power ("Nuclear is greenest," May 28). The old-school reliability concerns Mr. Campbell raises are most often voiced by fossil fuel companies - not the grid operators responsible for keeping the lights on. The "comprehensive study of U.S. wind power" that Mr. Campbell references is, in reality, based on data from four days in Colorado that was commissioned by the Independent Petroleum Association of the Mountain States.

Maryland's Fire Marshall has banned sky lanterns, the increasingly popular paper balloons that are sent aloft by the heat of a candle or fuel cell suspended from the bottom. "They're made with oiled rice paper and bamboo - it's almost kindling," said Deputy State Fire Marshal Bruce D. Bouch. "They have to land somewhere, and sometimes they're still partly on fire when they hit the ground. They've been known to ignite dry vegetation. " Bouch said the fire marshal's office frequently gets calls from people interested in using sky lanterns in weddings or other celebrations who want to know if they are legal in Maryland.

A memorial service was held late Friday - the longest night of the year - at the Inner Harbor to honor the more than 100 homeless men and women who died this year in Baltimore. The ceremony, in its 22nd year, was also intended to raise awareness for the struggles of the homeless, said Adam Schneider, spokesman for Healthcare for the Homeless. He said men and women who are homeless are three to four times more likely to die prematurely than those with a home. The average age of a homeless individual at death is 47. The names of those who died were read aloud for the roughly 150 people in attendance, and a candle was lit in honor of each of the deceased.

Candle making is easy and enjoyable, says author Miranda Innes. "The possibilities are limitless, and it's not a tragedy if something goes wrong. Experimenting with color is fascinating and full of surprises."Making your own candles is a lovely pastime, a wonderful thing to do with your children. You can have a terribly good time doing it. It's very therapeutic."When Ms. Innes was researching techniques for "The Book of Candles," she was cynical about some of the proposed candle-decorating ideas.
