Somewhere along the way, Warren G. Sargent decided to stop giving away his watercolor paintings. "As more and more of the old folks were gone and there were fewer new acquaintances to be had, it seemed like a good idea to keep them," the 93-year-old retired architect says. As it turns out, that sentimental decision paved the way for a five-week exhibition of 17 of his landscapes at the Gary J. Arthur Community Center in Glenwood. The display has laid bare the walls of his nearby home of nearly 60 years and sent him back to the drawing board, he said.

Drop by Glenwood Middle School and you may see a stylish woman stride by quickly and greet you with a broad smile. She'll stop in midstep to make a running child go back and walk, never saying a word, just pointing. Albertha Caldwell, assistant principal at Glenwood for the past 9 1/2 years, is a dynamo -- a woman in charge. She's constantly on the go, she says, because middle school kids are never still, and "I keep up with them."Beginning Jan. 31, Mrs. Caldwell will be keeping up with the students of Wilde Lake Middle School as their new principal.

Work is set to begin next month on two new fire stations at opposite ends of Howard County. The largest facility will replace a long-outmoded 1937 building owned by the Savage Volunteer Fire Company, while Glenwood, in the western county, will get a smaller station near the county's regional park, library and community center. In about two years, the county hopes to add a third new facility along U.S. Route 1 north of Route 175. "We took a look at the entire county" using GPS coordinates to find where new stations were needed to keep response times to six minutes or less and also reduce the time required for backup units to arrive, said Fire Chief William Goddard.

As the Glenwood resident recovered from surgery, it was the support of her friends that helped mend her spirit. “I thought about how fortunate I was to have so many great friends in my corner helping me. And I thought about what it would be like for people who don't have that kind of cheering section,” she says. What resulted was a small but growing network of women and girls in western Howard County who are quietly doing great things.
