The first step to being successful at fly fishing is tying a fly creatively enough to make it seem real to the fish you're trying to catch. Considered by many to be something of an art form, tying flies is an acquired skill. With hopes of learning how to tie their flies or how to get better at it, 400 to 500 anglers from Maryland and neighboring states are expected to attend the 11th annual Tiefest, which is presented by the Kent Narrows chapter of Coastal Conservation Association Maryland.

GRASONVILLE -- The lands that once belonged to Arthur Kudner Jr. spread across Queen Anne's County like a lush carpet. From the main road, the forest appears to have no end, and acres of soybean fields hug the shimmering blue of Prospect Bay. Even on the rural Eastern Shore, this much land - more than 1,500 acres - is hard to find, and harder still to keep pristine. So when the estate went up for sale, nearly every land trust in the state took notice. But none could afford to buy it. Then David Sutherland made a $20 million gamble.

Political leaders of Queen Anne's County said yesterday they are outraged by allegations in a federal lawsuit that accuses them of blocking affordable housing and discriminating against minorities, calling the legal action "cynical and inflammatory." In a prepared statement, the five county commissioners said they are dealing with limited water and sewer service and that they do support "moderately priced" homes. In March, they noted, they tried to hasten completion of a low- and moderate-income development on Kent Island.

The decision to purchase a 270-acre property in Queen Anne's County that local officials plan to set aside as open space has drawn attention far beyond its significance. The property was most recently appraised at $4.6 million, and that's how much the state is paying for it - with an additional $400,000 coming from the county. That doesn't sound particularly nefarious, but enough odd details about the deal have slowly come out to raise eyebrows. The questions generated by the purchase have, one by one, been reasonably answered by the O'Malley administration.
