For America Recycles Day, Howard County is moving a step beyond your average blue bin. County Executive Ken Ulman spent Friday morning passing out a new kind of bin to residents of the Clarks Glen neighborhood in Clarksville. Instead of blue, it's green - and rather than collecting bottles and cans, participants fill it up with food scraps. The county is expanding its composting program to Clarks Glen and other neighborhoods in Clarksville and parts of Columbia, where of about 3,800 households, some 1,200 requested the free green bin. Ulman said composting was the next step in moving the county toward its zero-waste goal.

In the food world, the battle between serious carnivores and vegetarians is a famous one, with meat-eaters often claiming that without meat, food simply can't be that tasty. Clarksville restaurant Great Sage, which this year celebrates a decade of vegan, organic cookery, proves that even without meat, a meal can be hearty, satisfying and, yes, delicious. Though sometimes the restaurant's laid-back vibe veers into just-plain-slow territory, overall, dinner at Great Sage could win over even the most die-hard meat lover.

Clarksville resident Hannah Silverman has spent this summer flipping, jumping and dancing her way across the Radio City Music Hall stage in New York City. On Tuesday, the 15-year-old River Hill High School sophomore will perform those feats with a chance of winning part of a $1 million prize. Silverman is a member of the acrobatic gymnastics crew AcroArmy, a team scheduled to compete as one of six finalists on the NBC television show "America's Got Talent. " On Wednesday, the crew will find out if viewers' votes make them a million-dollar act. This past week, the team made the cut in a round that narrowed the competitors from 12 to six. AcroArmy is the lone dance act advancing to the finals; it will compete this coming week against a musical group, three solo singers and a magician.

Back in 1972, 13-year-old Kathleen Koch made a habit of scrutinizing every detail of her new bayside home in Mississippi each time her family pulled out of the driveway to go somewhere, attempting to commit its every feature to memory. The Clarksville resident said she adopted her anxiety-driven routine after seeing remnants of Hurricane Camille's wrath flung randomly about Bay St. Louis, a picturesque town on the upper Gulf Coast where her family had just moved. Three years earlier, the Category 5 storm had flattened much of the state's coastline.

County residents expect a lot out from their local government, and we want our neighborhoods to thrive. I believe that the Howard County government is trying to improve my community. I don't always agree with the county, but that doesn't mean it is not working in our best interest, though it might not always be obvious. My neighbors and I talk a lot about what we think Clarksville will look like in the next five to 10 years, and we seem to circle back to one sentiment: We don't want Route 108 to grow and change without a plan.

I read with interest the recent article on the proposed magnetic levitation train running between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore ("Billions lined up for 'maglev,'" Sept. 4). The term, "maglev," is not an obscure high-tech term. It is, at best, something of a portmanteau like "telephone" or "Internet" and every bit as hard for the "average" person to "figure out. " The term is at least 40 years old, so I'm not sure why the "headline writer" felt it necessary to "enclose" the term in "quotes" unless he or she feels that the "majority" of the "readership" is "stupid" which may even be "true" but does not excuse The Sun for dumbing down its content to reach the "lowest common denominator.

A cell phone store employee claimed he was robbed Monday, but Anne Arundel County police say he made the story up to cover his own theft. Police officers went to the Metro PCS store in the 5600 block of Ritchie Highway in Brooklyn Park just before noon Monday to investigate a reported robbery. A store employee told police that two people had walked in, showed a handgun, announced they were robbing the store and made off with money from the business. Police said one of the officers noticed the employee had a ladder, and after checking the rear of the business, officers found money hidden in the ceiling.

When Mary Agnes McCarville and Fred Lewis met as students at the University of Delaware in 1949, they naturally had no way of knowing where their courtship would lead. Today, after 63 years of marriage, the Clarksville parents of 10 recently had something special to celebrate besides their remarkable good health and their large, close-knit family. With all of their children in attendance, Mary Agnes Lewis, 86, was honored by the Baltimore Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America on May 1 as their first Eagle Scout Mom of the Year for helping all seven of the couple's sons become Eagle Scouts.
