LEONARDTOWN -- "The rings are hung; the track is clear. Charge, fair maiden. " Upon the announcer's command, Mikayla Miller of St. Leonard, aboard the horse Tyke, raced down an 80-foot jousting course, lance in hand. Covering the distance in less than 9 seconds and keeping her arm and upper body as still as possible, she rode through three arches and speared the half-inch ring hanging from each of them. Competing at the St. Mary's County Fair Joust tournament last weekend, the semiprofessional rider performed well enough to qualify at that level for the state championship next Saturday in Crownsville.

The Maryland Renaissance Festival organizers have appealed a zoning decision that prevents the festival from moving to a new site in southern Anne Arundel County. Earlier this month, the county's administrative hearing officer denied requests from the festival for a special exception and variances to allow the festival to operate on a Lothian farm that lacks required "major road" access. The case now moves to the county's seven-member Board of Appeals. A hearing has not yet been scheduled.

One by one, they came to the microphone and made their case: The Maryland Renaissance Festival is fun, but it doesn't belong in a rural community. The festival annually attracts to Crownsville about 300,000 visitors who gobble smoked turkey legs, guzzle mead and are enchanted by jousters, musicians and artisans in a replica of an English village under the reign of King Henry VIII. Organizers say the festival has become a victim of its own success and needs more room to accommodate traffic, revelers and vendors than the 130-acre site can provide.
