It's getting a bit crowded in the Ducketts Lane Elementary School media center. In addition to about two dozen fifth-graders from the school assembled before a projection screen, media specialist Matthew Winner has invited about two dozen cyberspace invaders — a class from Rossville, Ind. — who show up courtesy of Skype. Students in both classrooms can see one another and take turns waving. Ducketts Lane students are accustomed to the interaction — Winner has allowed them to Skype with similar classes from as far away as China.

Some restaurants are like department stores. Their menus tend to offer something for almost everyone. Others are more like boutiques, offering a more specialized type of cuisine. One such place is SushiQ on Washington Boulevard in Elkridge. Rather than taking the Pan-Asian route that seems to be so popular these days, SushiQ owners Jennifer and Kenny Qiu provide fare that is virtually all Japanese.  Here, you won't find your future dinner entrée performing as part of a floor show.

Elizabeth E.W. Kirk has planned to be buried alongside her mother, Beatrice, and her family dogs at the Rosa Bonheur Memorial Park in Elkridge, believed to be one of the world's first pet cemeteries to allow people to be laid to rest with their animal companions. Her name is already set into the grassy turf there, on a bronze plaque with a photograph of her as a young woman snuggled in bed with five dogs. But now the 69-year-old worries that her final resting place may have to be someplace else.
