The publisher of the "Curious George" children's books expanded its presence in the fast-growing early-childhood education market with the acquisition of Cockeysville-based children's learning website Curiosityville. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, which publishes children's books and develops educational assessments, curriculum supplements and professional training for K-12 education, announced the purchase this week but did not disclose the purchase price.

Baltimore County government doesn't operate outdoor public pools, but beginning Memorial Day weekend, many residents swarm to a pair of county-run beaches - Rocky Point in Essex and Oregon Ridge in Cockeysville.

"There are moments when the adrenaline just crushes you," the Cockeysville native said in an interview from Star City, Russia, where he is training to launch May 28 aboard a Russian ship. "Holy smokes, I'm getting on that rocket in 21/2 weeks, and this time next month I'll be floating on the space station going 18,000 mph. It's still a little bit unbelievable.

Lisa Lee has done it again. After selling Umi Sake, the uber-popular Asian food restaurant in Cockeysville, Lee scooted a couple miles up York Road, opening a new restaurant, Fusion, in April of last year.
