Back -- way back -- in the day, big movie palaces had orchestras on hand to provide live music for silent films, creating a kind of opera without words. Once talkies came in, of course, everything changed. You can still come across the occasional opportunity to relive the wonderful aural experience of a silent movie with live orchestral accompaniment. Lately, it has also been possible to encounter such accompaniment with old sound movies. A particular popular example of the latter is The Wizard of Oz, which blew into Meyerhoff Symphony Hall on Saturday night and drew a large, age-diverse crowd.

Situated on the sunny South Carolina coast, Myrtle Beach continues to make its name as a golf destination with more than 100 golf courses scattered across the Grand Strand. The area features some of the most challenging, beautiful and famous golf courses in the world. But Myrtle Beach, which lures more than 14 million visitors a year, is increasingly establishing itself as a family destination with its abundant beaches, gleaming new resort complexes and amusement parks. Despite last year's closing of the Pavilion Amusement Park - a tourist favorite for 58 years - other fun family adventures are on tap, including miniature golf, arcade games and NASCAR-like racing.

Harry M. Dunbar's campaign to be Howard County executive seems like a classic novice's effort. The maverick Democrat has little money for advertising and has been shunned by mainstream party members, who are backing County Councilman Ken Ulman in the Sept. 12 primary. The 62-year-old federal retiree and real estate agent has based his campaign on dissatisfaction with the pace of development, making flamboyant, often inaccurate charges about the most sensitive political issue in the county this year.
