Sen. Barbara Mikulski formally threatened to filibuster a bill to overhaul the U.S. Postal Service because of concerns she has about the proposed closing of Easton's mail processing center, the Maryland Democrat's office said Thursday. The bipartisan bill would allow the Postal Service to end Saturday delivery and offer buyouts to employees. It would not affect the Easton plant directly, but because the U.S. Postal Service supports the measure, Mikulski is hoping to use it as leverage.

Bartlett Pear Inn is the name of Alice and Jordan Lloyd's boutique inn on Harrison Street in Easton. It's also the name of their wonderful-in-every-way restaurant on the inn's first floor. It is a superb restaurant. The atmosphere is serene and relaxing, the service achieves a rare balance of proficiency and warmth, and the food is consistently satisfying. There are moments of culinary drama, mostly at the beginning, when your senses need stimulation, and at the end, when you want a finale to whistle about on the sidewalk.

TRAVEL

Easton wasn't always an arts destination, with one gallery after another lining its shady, wide-sidewalked streets. For most of its history, hunters would travel to the Eastern Shore town each autumn for a weekend of waterfowl hunting during the November days when the migrating Canada geese flew overhead. Since they would often bring their wives and kids, it made sense to offer some activities for all the visitors. That's why, since 1971, the nonprofit group Waterfowl Festival Inc. has staged an annual event combining Easton's waterfowl hunting heritage with its newer role as a place to appreciate and purchase artwork.

South Carroll found a number of wide-open shots in Friday's Class 2A state semifinals. The Cavaliers got good looks from the corners, the wings and a number of other places. But they couldn't make the shots. After scoring 13 points in just over four minutes at the start, No. 12 South Carroll suddenly went cold. That allowed Easton to bounce back and pull away for a 69-52 victory over the Cavaliers at Comcast Center. South Carroll (24-2), trying for its first state final appearance in 22 years, suffered its second loss in the state semifinals in the past three seasons.

COLLEGE PARK -- Jordan Cargile jumped into her teammates' arms. The game was over. The championship captured. The perfect season complete. No. 1 Eastern Tech (24-0) knocked off Easton (18-3) 3-1 to capture the Class 2A state championship Friday at Maryland Softball Stadium.

A man in the midst of a traffic stop in Easton abruptly fled and exchanged gunfire with Maryland State Police troopers early Thursday morning, police said.

It's a frosty winter's day in this historic town on Maryland's Eastern Shore, but inside a little red-brick restaurant called The BBQ Joint, the vibe is warm and the barbecue is smoking hot. Savory aromas waft from the open kitchen as chef/owner Andrew Evans and his staff chat up lunch patrons while serving finger-lickin' food. The menu in this cozy, colorful spot - with its sawdust-covered floors and an antique painting of a portly Berkshire pig - might be described as down-home fare meets epicurean flair.

The giant reindeer perched on the shopping center roof, a phone clutched in his hoof, his red nose glowing against the smudgy December sky. Beneath him, a line of children waited for their turn to step into the red telephone booth marked "North Pole" and list their wishes. It was a new experience for the children - most of whom had never seen a phone booth before - and for many of their parents. But for the grandparents who crowded the Talbottown Shopping Center on a rainy Friday evening, it was a re-creation of some of their most cherished childhood memories.

Trailing in front of the home crowd by nine at halftime Friday night, top-seeded Fallston started the third quarter needing to make up ground on visiting fourth seed Easton. The guests had other plans and started the second half by recovering an onside kick. That inauspicious beginning could've signaled the beginning of two very rough two quarters, but the Cougars were undeterred. Fallston outscored Easton, 15-0, over the last 24 minutes, rallying for a 27-21 victory and advancing to the regional title game.

After Winters Mill's girls lacrosse team started the season 2-4, coach Courtney Vaughn told her players that if the seniors led and the youngsters followed they would "do good things down the road. " The road for the Falcons' five leaders ended Tuesday with a third state championship in four years after an 8-7 victory over Easton in the Class 2A-1A final at UMBC Stadium. The seniors - twin midfielders Shelby and Sydney Trentzsch and defenders Maddie Bodden, Emily Horn and Delaney Norris - led their younger teammates to a big finish, winning 13 of their last 14 games with the only loss a 12-10 setback to No. 2 Century on April 30. "I told them after that game, the only team that can beat you is yourselves," Vaughn said.
