This is a story of alleged cattle rustling and apparent cunning by neighbors. A tale from the Old West? No. Northern Harford County, 2008. The story began last Sunday, when Charlie Croft's two cows wandered off his property on Cedar Church Road in Darlington. The animals occasionally abscond (they ended up in a nearby trailer park last year), and in the past, Croft just drives around the neighborhood until he finds and corrals them. "They're very friendly," says Croft. "They don't bother anybody."

Last year was not the year for market timers. Longtime bears remained in hibernation in 1993. It was a lousy year for Fed watchers, macro-economists, technical analysts, quantitative analysts and even those who predict the stock market by studying chicken entrails.Instead, last year was the year for stock-pickers, those with the skill and patience to unearth the gems. And of all the large institutional money managers in Maryland, no one did it better last year than Croft-Leominster Inc. of Baltimore.

Bond funds finished the quarter down less than one-tenth of a percent on average, according to Lipper Inc., which tracks mutual funds. Of the 255 Maryland-based mutual funds surveyed by Bloomberg News, all but a few stock funds were in the black.

Bowie Community Theatre's production of J.B. Priestly's classic thriller An Inspector Calls provides a total theater experience that begins on entering the playhouse. The audience views a lovely scene complete with a cobblestone street winding up an incline toward a flower-surrounded English manor house, its illuminated windows casting a warm glow to invite our entry. As lightning flashes and thunder rumbles, a tall man wearing a long raincoat strides purposefully past the curtain where the scene is displayed.
