City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young will recuse himself from the bottle tax vote because his cousin works for a beverage distributor? ("Councilman leans against bottle tax," June 17.) He's got to be kidding. Does he owe a duty to his cousin's employer or to the citizens that elected him to office? I say the latter, and he should do his duty. Or is this just a screen so he doesn't have to vote? Jim Astrachan, Baltimore

The Doberman sits on the edge of a bed, oblivious of the remarkable view from the floor-to-ceiling window. Modern high-rises peep out from a dense forest dotted with palm trees and shrouded in mist. Artist Jereme Scott says his painting was inspired by a 1957 photograph in National Geographic. At 66 inches by 50 inches, “The Watcher of Suite Singapore” is the largest item on display at his store, Cotton Duck Art & Apparel, in Historic Ellicott City. The shop, which opened in March, also sells T-shirts, hoodies and tank tops Scott designed, and jewelry made by designers from the Mid-Atlantic.  Scott, 28, studied fine arts at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia and received his master's in studio arts from Howard University.

THE GUILFORD Reservoir is dug into a man-made hill that stands high above the large houses and the tall trees of Guilford. The sloping, grassy sides of this earthen mass are met at the bottom by Old Cold Spring Lane on the north, Millbrook Road on the west and, on the south and east, by Reservoir Lane. Several feet above water level, a concrete walk and a black iron fence frame the reservoir's rectangular surface. A gate breaks the fence near the northeast corner and opens onto a concrete ramp that extends out over the water.

Washington. -- Let me state my own position, right up front: I am a dwarf wedge mussel man, a kit fox man, a friend of the shagreen snail that dwells on Magazine Mountain in the Ozarks. Count me in a corner with the bladderpod of Colorado and the beach mouse of Florida.I am a wetlands man, a wilderness man, a bird-watching, impractical, idealistic petal-picking amateur in the ranks of conservationists. The Endangered Species Act of 1973, which was last reauthorized in 1988, comes up for renewal this year, and I will be whooping it up for the Red Hills salamander of Butler County, Ala. Let the ugly critter alone!

The first time I was deployed to Iraq was in 2004, when we were still a peace-time Army trying to find our way through the fog of asymmetric warfare. We made a lot of mistakes and faced many challenges. But since then we have evolved into a much more effective fighting force. Not a day goes by without a news report praising the military's latest tactical or technological advancement. Since 2004 we re-learned that the best defense is a good offense. We got off of our enclosed bases and out of our stifling armored vehicles.

The wild duck populations that will fly south from the prairie pothole regions on the north central United States and central Canada early this fall are at higher levels than at any time since the early 1980s and similar to counts in the early 1970s, according to figures compiled by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.And when Maryland opens its duck hunting season in October, it is possible that hunters will have a 40-day season, with a bag limit of three ducks per day.The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which originally planned to allow four ducks per day and a 30-day season, now has given Maryland the option of more ducks per day or more days to hunt.

June, 1990 -- Sitting in my backyard, I have found that, at any given moment, anything might happen. Surprise, if I want it, is there for the asking.Columbine, for example, is a surprise. Last year, nothing. This year, dozens of flowers, each one a marvel: five tapered burgundy petals and five creamy ovals with streaming burgundy tails, all surrounding a spray of yellow pistils. Who could have imagined such a flower?And rabbits, too, can catch me off guard. Baby bunnies leaping haphazardly, surprising not only me, but themselves.

Douglass' running backs rolled up the yardage Friday afternoon, but they didn't take the credit for the 48-6 win over Northwestern in a Baltimore City Division II football game. "My offensive line is the key to this," said senior running back Maurice McFadden, who ran for two touchdowns. "We've got a lot of offensive linemen who work hard day in and day out. Hats off to them. They did this. " The host Ducks (2-0, 1-0 division) dominated the line of scrimmage and scored on seven of their nine possessions.

On the ride home from M&T Bank Stadium after the state football final in December, Franklin's players rocked the bus in celebration of their first championship. As the bus rolled onto the Beltway from Interstate-83 heading toward Reisterstown, the Indians cranked it up a notch, just as they had in breaking a 7-7 tie to beat Linganore, 20-7, for the Class 3A title. "When we saw we had a police escort and a fire truck, we were like, 'That's crazy.' Everybody went a little crazy," said wide receiver Steven Smothers, who caught the tiebreaking third-quarter touchdown from Jacquez Adams on fourth-and-20.

Joey Jobes' workshop is a small, two-story building in Havre de Grace, minutes from the Susquehanna Flats at the top of the Chesapeake Bay. The space is dominated by saws, knives, paints and hundreds of blocks in various stages of transforming into ducks, geese and other birds. Most horizontal surfaces are covered in tools and supplies, but Jobes seems to know where everything is. "My life is business," Jobes said. A second-generation decoy carver in the self-proclaimed decoy capital of the world, he has been in his business for most of his 48 years and goes about it with practiced ease.

Once again, the Baltimore City Public Schools are facing a multi-million dollar budget shortfall ( "Seeing red over city schools budget," April 15). Unfortunately, this is not a new occurrence, but what is stunning to me this time is the reaction of the Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners. The commissioners express surprise and "wonder" that the system got to this point. Let's consider some of the items that caused this surprise - grant funds that always have expiration dates, the highly-touted new facilities plan that will require at least $20 million per year for the foreseeable future and the new teacher evaluation system which calls for an unknowable expenditures for teacher performance.

Edmondson coach Darnell Dantzler served a Baltimore City League-sanctioned one-game suspension for his role in Tuesday's loss to No. 10 Patterson, which officials ended with 44.3 seconds left in the third quarter. The No. 7 Red Storm (14-5) carried on with his brother, Terrell Dantzler, the junior varsity coach, at the helm. Edmondson defeated visiting Douglass, 62-35, on Wednesday. Edmondson switched defenses from a 2-3 zone to a 1-2-2 zone and got seven straight turnovers in the third quarter to pull away from the Ducks.

Shannon Propst finished her junior year just eight assists shy of Oregon's career record, so it was all but certain she would break it a few games into this season. The Fallston graduate didn't wait that long. With nine assists in Monday's season opener, she not only broke the career record, she also broke the Ducks' single-game assist record. Propst said she had no idea that she had so many assists until she got on the bus after the Ducks beat Stetson 20-3. One one of her teammates told her about the records.

HAGERSTOWN -- Life is quite daffy in parts of Hagerstown these days.Some people are calling themselves (and maybe others) "quacks." Secretaries joke about city officials "ducking" out of the office when ruffled constituents call. And schoolchildren are hollering, er, "fowl," sending angry letters and petitions to the City Council.This quackmire (sorry) stems from efforts to control the burgeoning population of mallards and other ducks, as well as Canada and domesticated geese at two man-made lakes at Hagerstown's picturesque and popular City Park.

These are tough times for the ducks that winter on the Chesapeake Bay. Threatened food sources and an imperiled habitat are forcing migrating waterfowl to look for other winter digs. Alicia Berlin hopes to unlock the formula to win them back. In a quiet corner of the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, the waterfowl biologist and her team are studying captive black ducks and scoters to find ways to make the bay more nurturing and learn more about the birds' time away from the Chesapeake.

Fair warning: This is about the "Duck Dynasty" controversy. Yes, I know. I'm sick of it, too. Still, relying upon my First Amendment right to freedom of speech, I will make a few observations about Phil Robertson, the grizzled Louisiana duck hunter turned reality TV star whose comments about black and gay people recently got him suspended -- and then unsuspended -- by A&E. If you find my observations disagreeable you may, relying upon your own...

Normally at this time of year, the culture-war fight is over a guy with a white beard. That's true again this year. What's different is that Phil Robertson has taken Santa's place, and instead of a war on Christmas, we have a war on "Duck Dynasty. " The patriarch of the popular A&E reality show said some crude things about homosexuals to GQ magazine. A&E was sufficiently offended that it suspended him from a show about his own family. So far, the controversy understandably has been framed as a fight over free speech.
