At the end of last year, Courtney's, the popular Cockeysville restaurant, moved to larger quarters on York Road, a bit north of its old digs. In the process, it changed from what a manager calls a "casual fine-dining restaurant" to a fine-dining restaurant. What that means is a bit more formal setting, much more polished service, an upgraded wine list, higher prices and a familiar figure in the kitchen. Courtney's executive chef is now Jerome Dorsch, formerly of the Polo Grill and Four West.

It began as a simple friendship. Ellen Dorsch, an American health-care consultant, was working in Ethiopia, and Menbere Alemayehu (right) was the wife of one of Dorsch's Ethiopian co-workers. It wasn't long before Dorsch pitched an unusual idea for a business to Alemayehu, a dressmaker. And so last year Creative Women was born, a woman-owned and -operated company that creates and sells handicrafts and textiles. In Ethiopia, Alemayehu, the designer, hires women to make intricately designed wall hangings, pillows, runners, table mats and cloths, shawls and scarves from fabric woven on traditional Ethiopian looms.

Although renowned for its breathtaking wildlife and scenic forests, Patapsco Valley State Park had a flaw -- ugly trash bag dispensers.Dispensers in the park held grocery-store-sized plastic bags so visitors could take their trash with them when they left the park. But the design of the dispensers made the bags look like wet dish rags, which could be unappealing to users, said park naturalist Offutt Johnson."With 200 bags hanging on a hook, it's not the prettiest thing in the world," he acknowledges.
