Callie Lippert's third birthday party almost ended with a Cinderella-versus-superhero smackdown. When Marloe Lippert of Elkridge invited six of her daughter's friends over for a Cinderella dress-up birthday party, she made sure she had plenty of crowns and jewels to go around. Since it was a co-ed party, she included several superhero capes made by her neighbor Holly Hagen. “The girls loved all the princess stuff - until they saw the capes,” Lippert recalls. “They all started fighting over who was going to wear the capes, and I ended up having to put them away.

For the first time in more than a decade, the sprawling House of Delegates district that extends from southwest Baltimore County through Howard County is in play. With three long-serving incumbents retiring from District 12, a large field of competitors is hoping to pounce on a rare opportunity to win election in what is seen as a diverse and important district. The wide-open race has attracted 13 candidates, including two physicians, a former speechwriter for Gov. Martin O'Malley and a former state lawmaker who is financing his campaign with $85,000 of his own money.

From the outside, Belmont Manor and Historic Park in Elkridge hasn't changed much. The 68-acre estate is still home to the Georgian-style, stucco-on-brick manor house, built by Caleb Dorsey in 1738. It still has intricate gardens and rolling hills as far as the eye can see. But the house and its surrounding property are subtly evolving. For the first time in its almost 300-year history, Belmont is hosting public environmental and preservation programs. The Woodstock-based Howard County Conservancy began offering programs at the new Belmont Nature Center in May and will continue to do so year-round, says Meg Schumacher Boyd, the conservancy's executive director.

In the past few days, we have seen horror stories about the lack of treatment given to our veterans at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. And once again, it's a system that continues to be broken and nothing is being done to resolve it. Just like last year's stories about Baltimore having the worst claims office in the country, it's just a symptom of what goes on in the entire agency. I retired from the U.S. Army Reserves last year (with seven years of active duty). I've had a claim pending since 2009 that was in appeal until the VA abruptly closed it because they lost my paperwork (they said I never sent it in on time even though I have a dated receipt from them showing they got it)

The nation's space exploration program had already captivated 12-year-old Howard Weinstein's imagination when the episodes of the original "Star Trek" began airing in 1966. "The show was the coolest thing happening on TV, outside of space launches," the Elkridge author said, recalling how school days were interrupted so that bulky TVs could be wheeled into classrooms for students across the nation to watch live blastoffs. The science fiction series, which follows the voyages of the starship USS Enterprise, shared an optimistic outlook with the U.S. space program that attracted the now 59-year-old author of 65 "Star Trek" comic books and seven "Star Trek" novels.

Ten years ago, a study showed that the Elkridge library needed to be more than twice its current size in order to meet the needs of the community.Then five years ago, a feasaibility study determined that renovation of the existing building would not be an option. Aside from it being too small, the branch doesn't have the classroom or meeting room space necessary or even a heating and air conditioning system that works properly. In that time, a new, state-of-the-art library was built in Ellicott City and renovations are under way to double the size of the Savage library.
