House of Delegates candidate Mary Beth Tung held her Republican political campaign picnic at the Clarks Glen community gazebo in Clarksville as scheduled Sunday evening, defying her homeowners association, which had prohibited the event. Cpl. Lisa Myers, a Howard County police spokeswoman, said officers were called to the event about 4:30 p.m., but they merely obtained information and gave it to David Woodhouse, president of the Clarks Glen Homeowners Association. Myers said that if the association wants to pursue trespassing charges, the board must go before a District Court commissioner and seek a summons.

For their May nuptials, Mount Vernon residents Katie Joost and Nick Garber made careful preparations. They booked a gazebo at Owings Mills' Irvine Nature Center, accessible by a quarter-mile hike. They selected readings that had special meaning to them, including one from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer. " And they prevailed on Katie's uncle, Peter Joost, to officiate - prompting him to become ordained online through the Universal Life Church. "It was really great to be able to create a ceremony that really represented us as a couple," said Katie.

James Heuser's Eagle Scout project took him a fair distance from his home base of Lutherville, but on the journey he gained a respect and insight to the legacy of veterans and, in turn, embraced a project designed to help provide them a place of relaxation and reflection. Heuser, 16, a Boy Scout with Troop 828 in Lutherville, took on the project of building a large gazebo on the grounds of the Perry Point Veterans Affairs Medical Center, in Harford County. "I knew I wanted to do something special to show veterans how much I appreciate all they have done to protect our country," said Heuser, the son of Dr. Mark and Leslie Heuser, "and I thought the gazebo would provide them with a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

When she decided to run for office for the first time, Mary Beth Tung of Clarksville never expected her first political fight would be with her homeowners association -- over a gazebo. But her plan to hold a neighborhood campaign picnic Sunday at the commonly owned structure in her Clarks Glen subdivision has sparked a battle, with the association board ordering her to cancel the event. Even the American Civil Liberties Union says the Constitution doesn't protect free speech on private property, but Tung -- a Republican running for the House of Delegates in Howard County's new District 13 -- vows to hold the event as scheduled.

Most of us have probably visited our local landfill to get rid of dilapidated beach chairs and particle-board tables, or to recycle batteries, paint and motor oil. Perhaps we've spent a weekend pruning everything that's green in our yards, and now it's time to throw out our lower backs along with a couple of truck-beds full of branches and clippings. In either case, the Alpha Ridge Landfill is the place to be in Howard County on the weekends. I go there often, and I find it to be a mysteriously beautiful and uplifting place.

You know how it is. There you are, quiet and well-behaved (for a gardener) one day or evening, when suddenly it strikes you that the very thing you need to improve your back yard is half a gazebo. Just the thing for the Chippendale bench to sit under.If you are like my patient spouse, you may think half a gazebo does not sound very sensible. But my yard is very small, and half a gazebo is better than none. It will also do nicely to disguise an otherwise bare and very obtrusive garage wall.

Apparently, I have the perfect backyard for a pool. It's the No. 1 suggestion made by most visitors to my home after they look out on my exceedingly flat yard. I usually nod in agreement, adding that I also happen to have the perfect head for a diamond-encrusted tiara - and that's not happening any time soon either. But I've just heard an astounding radio advertisement that has changed my thinking about money. In fact, I'm completely reversing the conservative fiscal philosophy I've embraced since I was a 9-year-old subcontractor on my older brother's paper route, delivering to the two streets that rarely gave any tips, plus the one with the creepy lady who tried to offer me moth balls in a candy dish.

MOON METRO: NEW YORK CITY Avalon Travel / $16.95 Moon Metro's "Unfold the City" series has just made New York easier to navigate. In a book the size of a Zagat guide are 10 laminated maps that open to Manhattan's most-visited neighborhoods. An overleaf introduces each grid with a neighborhood profile, then opens to reveal the map, with keys to hotels, restaurants, shops, theaters and other landmarks. That accounts for almost half of the book's thickness. The remainder is a directory that describes major sights, hotels, restaurants and so forth.

Be aware of the past, but look to the future I have a combination of amusement and annoyance when I read comments like the one made in the July 28 article "You Can Go Home Again". It starts out as a lovely story about an individual who "came home" to live, start a business, and make a commitment to a community she once, probably, could not wait to escape. I have been to the Blue Cow Cafe and it does portray the small town feeling. Honestly, as a newcomer to Columbia, I have not found many similar establishments.
