People from across the state gather on the beach at Sandy Point State Park to enjoy the bay's best eating at the annual Maryland Seafood Festival. In addition to the fresh seafood, festival-goers enjoyed watching local craftspeople, bay workboats, and displays on the ecology of the Chesapeake.

More than three decades ago, 22-year-old Annapolis native Andy Teeling climbed aboard his 16-foot dory and embarked on an ambitious journey to circumnavigate the 450-mile coastline of the Delmarva Peninsula in a rowboat. After two months of rowing under the summer sun, and with his first semester of college beckoning him back to shore, Teeling's journey was stalled in Chincoteague, Va., 150 miles short of his goal. This week Teeling, 35 years later at age 57, finished the adventure.

To hear Larry Hogan tell it, the multibillion-dollar effort to clean up the Chesapeake Bay has been a dismal failure - and the biggest problem is getting Pennsylvania and New York to stop sending sediment pollution down the Susquehanna River. The Republican gubernatorial candidate vows to "stand up" for Maryland farmers, watermen and homeowners, who he contends have been unfairly burdened with the bay's restoration, and says he'd take the other states to court if necessary to get them to do more.

Tom Wisner has taught James Michener, but has never quoted him much in his work, preferring the poems of watermen for his classes, songs and stories about the Chesapeake Bay.But he was saddened yesterday to learn of the death of Michener, whose 1978 book "Chesapeake" was among the most popular of the late author's many epic novels."

Public support for continued cleanup of the Chesapeake Bay was underlined in a recent survey of residents by the University of Maryland Survey Research Center. Ninety percent of the 2,000 people interviewed support current efforts, and 60 percent of them want even more aggressive action.Trouble is, the respondents (as the pollsters dub them) weren't asked if they'd be willing to pay more money for the campaign. And they placed the major blame for pollution on historic polluters, rather than on the primary sources of today's more complicated pollution problems in the Chesapeake.

Affordable-housing provider Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake said its new chief executive — who brings a construction and finance background — will come on board this month. Mike Posko, a principal with real estate consulting firm Cross Street Partners in Baltimore, replaces longtime CEO Mike Mitchell at the helm of the nonprofit after Mitchell's resignation in November. Before Cross Street, Posko worked at developer Struever Bros., Eccles & Rouse and at the Federal Reserve.

Regarding your story about two Christian pastors who supported Maryland's same-sex marriage law, it is a real tragedy when men who profess to represent God to their constituents promote a measure that sanctions homosexuality ("Voices for marriage freedom," Nov. 11). The same Bible that Rev. Delman Coates holds in the photo accompanying the article states that homosexuality in both men and women is an abomination. Just because the law was approved by Maryland voters doesn't make it right.

If the spirit of the Bard were to appear to the members of the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company in their terrific new home, he'd surely quote one of his lines from "The Tempest": "Be merry; you have cause. " There is abundant reason for high spirits during the venue's inaugural production, "A Midsummer Night's Dream. The troupe's downtown Baltimore theater, formed out of a handsome 19th-century bank building that deserved the makeover, is a lively place, visually and atmospherically.

I like Pen & Quill, the new restaurant on the corner of Charles and Lanvale streets in Station North. It's pretty and comfortable, and the food, from executive chef Bella Kline, is tasty, rib-sticking and satisfying. I sure like it a heckuva lot better than The Chesapeake, which was the name of the previous restaurant that occupied this space. The Chesapeake, which lasted for less than a year, should not be confused with another similarly named establishment, Chesapeake Restaurant, a dining institution that flourished on this corner in the middle of the last century.

Elizabeth McPherson hits the ground with a thud, an audible gasp of air escaping her lungs. But the rugby rookie's first thought when she lands is that her mother is going to kill her. "She was worried when my sister, who is 6 feet tall and larger-framed than I, played, so I'd been putting off telling her," jokes McPherson, 33, of Mount Vernon, who had told her mother only earlier that day that she had joined the Chesapeake Women's Rugby Club the...

For the past 12 years, the name Chesapeake Shakespeare Company has been most associated with its outdoor productions in summer and fall, reached by trekking up a hill to the rustic ruins of Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park in Ellicott City. Audience seating typically involved folding chairs or blankets. This week, the company inaugurates a striking new home in downtown Baltimore that suggests a hip version of the famed Globe Theatre in London where Shakespeare's own company performed.

The general election is still more than two months away but here's a bit of friendly advice to candidates hoping to win office in Maryland: Don't use the Conowingo Dam as an excuse to stop cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay. That would seem like common sense but it's become increasingly clear that damning the dam has become a popular political strategy. Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan released a 30-second ad through his website last month that essentially blames the Conowingo for the bay's woes and urges voters to fight back against other pollution-fighting strategies endorsed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Democratically-controlled state government.

Understanding Marlene A. Condon's plea for us all to take responsibility to save our Chesapeake Bay ( "If you break it, you pay for it," Aug. 22) gives us overall plans to save the bay. Saving the bay under Ms. Condon's plans would simultaneously create green jobs, save species, clean the air and water, greatly beautify the landscape while reducing global warming through the trees, shrubs and flowers replacing much of the "largest crop grown" in the Chesapeake watershed - you guessed it, law and turf, which pollutes storm water runoff like pavement does and with it, pesticides, fertilizers and the exhausts of countless mowers and weed trimmers all adding to the slow death of our bay. Oh, and the bees, our pollinators, could thrive as well if we would follow the vision offered in this excellent commentary.
