Fred Shoken, a Baltimore preservationist and planner, wrote to me several weeks ago after I had written a piece about Roland Park author Jill Jonnes' new book on the building of the Eiffel Tower. "I was disappointed that it made no mention of Baltimore's little-known, if not spurious connection, to the landmark structure," he wrote. What Shoken was talking about were 1894 newspaper accounts stating that Baltimore capitalists had purchased the Eiffel Tower and were planning to have it dismantled and re-erected in Clifton Park to celebrate Baltimore's centennial in 1897.

The equine herpes virus 1 disease that is believed to have infected 11 horses at Pimlico - leading the Maryland Jockey Club to place a quarantine on the track - was not seen as a threat to the more than 100 animals being shown at the Maryland State Fairgrounds.

Laura Levi turned the tables on her teachers, educating them about energy conservation and saving her school $5,000. "We told teachers to turn off the lights and things like that," said the eighth-grader at Hammond Middle School in Laurel. It's just the sort of youth-driven activism that Howard County was hoping to inspire during the Student Achievement Exposition on Friday. The event was dedicated to Dianne Wells, a retired county middle school teacher who died in October. After the death of two pupils in bike-related accidents, Wells and her 1990 eighth-grade class at Glenwood Middle worked to enact the nation's first child bicycle helmet law, for which she was honored by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Like hikers on an alpine trail, every generation or so the Swiss stop to consider where they've been, where they're going and what they're doing there. The last time this polyglot, postage-stamp-size nation checked its cultural course was in 1964. And this summer and early fall, Switzerland is doing it again at its national exposition spread among four towns and a fifth, mobile venue in the lakes region west of the capital, Bern. Expo.02 is equal parts entertainment, soul-searching and intriguing impermanent architecture.

In 1893, most people had never seen an automobile or an electric light, talked on a telephone or even used a zipper, so it's tough to imagine what went through their minds when they saw the first Ferris wheel silhouetted against the sky at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.These days the Ferris wheel is so common a midway ride it's not surprising to see them in mall parking lots. But even by today's standards, the original wheel would take your breath away. It was 26 stories high and three times larger than the largest wheel constructed since.
