Since the last big snowstorm, city crews have been focusing on clearing snow and not tending to public parks. But crews will get back to picking up trash and will begin clearing snow in the parks beginning Monday, said Michelle Speaks-March, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore Department of Recreation and Parks. Crews normally pick up trash every day in the eight biggest parks and once a week in 33 smaller ones. But they haven't collected any since the snow, and many cans - particularly in parks with a lot of dog walkers - are overflowing.

Out of the frying pan and into the fire, I'm switching from one dance show to another, with barely a week between the "Dancing with the Stars" finale and the "So You Think You Can Dance "premiere. Audition episodes are often my least favorite, primarily due to the number of joke auditions. Let's hope those are kept to a minimum this year. Cat Deeley's introduction says, "Every summer for the past decade…" Have we really been watching this show for so long? Huh. We're officially at the point where contestants can realistically claim to have been watching the show their "whole life.

Thank you, Steven Frank of Fulton for you recent letter ("Instead of whining about outages, thank BGE, work crews," Aug. 2). This storm was a pain for all of us, caused problems for everyone and still has evidence scattered here and there. If the public wants to be angry with BGE, so be it. However, as Steven Frank wrote, we should all be grateful to those great guys who stepped up from here and all the other states who come in and tried to clean up the mess and get us back to normal again.
