What time is it when an elephant sits on your fence? Time to get a new fence! When does an elephant have eight legs? When there are two elephants! And when does the Equestrian Center become overrun with joke-telling boys? When it's the week of the Harford County District Cub Scout Day Camp! These are only a sampling of the jokes visitors to the Harford County Equestrian Center and surrounding fields (better known to some as the site of the Harford County Farm Fair)

Well, we have made it to Memorial Day. Students are graduating, pools are open and we have our first "Orioles have interest in trading for ... " story. I love annual traditions. This report comes out of CBS Chicago - that the Orioles are interested in Chicago Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija, a free agent after the 2015 season who is 1-4 with a 1.68 ERA in 11 starts this season. The Orioles were interested in Samardzija this winter and certainly haven't lost that interest since the 29-year-old has posted the second-best ERA for a major league starter so far this season.

FOR PAT HAMILTON, Cub Scouts is about more than learning how to light a fire, tie knots and pitch a tent. "Cub Scouts is a very worthwhile program for young boys. It teaches them independence, how to think for themselves, good sportsmanship, citizenship, teamwork and good behavior," he said. Hamilton is the committee chairman for Cub Scout Pack 615 and roundtable commissioner for the National Pike District of the Scouts. He began his affiliation with the pack 12 years ago when his son, Jason, was in the third grade.

CUB SCOUTS from Hampstead Pack 790 raced 12 homemade model sailboats at Cascade Lake on Sunday.As during the America's Cup, creative use of wind power determined the winners. In the case of the Cub Scout Regatta, however, the wind was man-made; each boy blew against the stiff sail of his boat.Typically, a Scout regatta takes place on rain gutters filled with water, enabling the boys to better guide the model sailboats. During Sunday's race, however, Ed Cross, den leader and race organizer, sent both boy and boat into the lake.

The Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration at the Carroll County Farm Museum could be considered the calm before the storm - the leisurely picnic and family festival that comes before tens of thousands of people converge on the museum grounds for one of the biggest fireworks show in the region. Thursday, in the hours before that night light show, the "calm" held plenty of attraction as well, from sack races to a performing monkey; mule-drawn wagon rides to a moon bounce; dancing cloggers to pickles on a stick.
