Say goodbye to the weathered "space for lease" sign nailed to a piece of plywood on the former M&T Bank building in the Oakland Mills Village Center. Village officials said the brick building, which has been vacant since 2002, will soon be a coffee and doughnut shop, the newest addition to the once struggling village center. The announcement of the new business, which village officials said could open in a few months, follows news this summer that the longtime vacant property of a former Exxon station would be developed into an office complex.

As a lover of doughnuts, I'm surprised I didn't know this. But apparently, National Doughnut Day is today. It's an annual holiday that goes back to 1938 as -- according to different sources -- a fundraiser or to honor the women of the Salvation Army who served doughnuts during WWI, or both. Anyway, what's most relevant today is that some doughnut shops are offering freebies today. Dunkin' Donuts, for example, is offering a free doughnut with the purchase of a beverage at participating stores.

Once the Queen of Baltimore burlesque, Fannie Belle Fleming — better known as Blaze Starr — has been living the quiet life in rural West Virginia for more than 30 years now, far away from the blinking neon signs, barkers and strippers of The Block. The Block was her venue, where she reigned supreme for more than 20 years. She is still fondly remembered by generations of gents, sans wife or girlfriend, traveling salesmen and servicemen all out for a night on the town, and for the rose petals that she gently blew across her ample bosom to admiring audiences from the runway of her Two O'Clock Club.

Seeing Bowie Community Theatre's production of Tom Griffin's "The Boys Next Door," is a moving experience. Unfamiliar with playwright Griffin, I had initial reservations about a play dealing with mentally challenged individuals living in a group home, struggling with everyday reality. My misgivings disappeared as I discovered playwright Griffin. In this, his first play, originally produced in 1986, he reveals sensitivity, compassion and a unique ability to educate through gentle humor.

The Carroll County commissioners unanimously passed a noise ordinance last week that might curtail the riding pleasure of some all-terrain vehicle enthusiasts. "We are better off with a noise ordinance, rather than zoning for ATV riding," said Commissioner Perry L. Jones Jr. But Commissioner Julia Walsh Gouge said, "If people were only reasonable, they could have worked these issues out themselves." To which Commissioner Dean L. Minnich replied, "If people were reasonable, we would not need governments or maybe police forces."
