In the 18th century, England protected its export market of silverware in the colonies by not exporting raw silver. So Annapolis silversmiths were forced to reuse old silver for their creations, and they became experts at producing small pieces of flatware, especially spoons. Considering the ease with which flatware disappeared over the centuries, it is remarkable that there are 11 known pieces of silver by renowned Annapolis silversmith Charles Faris in existence. Four Faris tablespoons and a ladle are in the Historic Annapolis Foundation's silver exhibit, Maryland's First Silver: 18th Century Annapolis Silver, at this weekend's Historic Annapolis Antiques Show.

After a fatal accident in July at the All Good Festival in West Virginia, Walther Productions, the festival's Maryland-based promoter, has moved the jam band music festival to Ohio, the company has said. The accident, which left a 20-year-old woman dead and two others injured, has resulted in three lawsuits , as first reported by The Baltimore Sun, accusing the company, as well as several of the festival's vendors, like a security company, of negligence. Earlier this month, Walther Productions moved to dismiss the lawsuits in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg, West Virginia.

"Reveille in Washington, 1860-1865," by Margaret Leech. It's the story of Washington and the way people lived during the war. It's a very interesting, thorough account. I read those sorts of regional histories for my research, but I would recomend this to any history or war buff.And "Historic Shrines of America," by John T. Faris. It was published in 1918. It gives the physical history and background on the owners of 120 homes. This is a fascinating book.Then of course, I read Edgar Allan Poe -- my favorite author.

Rising interest rates, still-unknowable employee health-care costs, bills in Congress that would ban replacements for striking workers, proposals for tighter safety regulations -- even amid recovery, the view of today's U.S. economy from Main Street can be scary.Or at least the view from Main Street's man in Washington can be."Small businesses in America are more optimistic about the economy right now than they've been in a long time, but it's a guarded optimism because there are so many proposals for government intervention in their operations.
