The arts scene is thriving in Harford County, and this summer there are plenty of ways to enjoy it outside. Dance along the banks of the Susquehanna River while listening to live music in Havre de Grace. Dig out the sketch pad and draw colorful flowers, blooming in Pylesville. Or grab your picnic basket to watch a movie under the stars in Bel Air. “The arts in Harford County in the summer are a wonderful way to enjoy the natural beauty of our county, as well as celebrate the arts,” says Martha Valentine, coordinator of the Harford County Cultural Arts Board.

Piled on Sheriff L. Jesse Bane's desk are stacks of unopened mail, and among the envelopes stuffed with condolences, is a black leather-bound Bible inscribed with gold lettering. Harford County's top lawman has been wrestling with leading an agency of 290 sworn officers through tragedy unlike any it has endured in the last two centuries: the back-to-back deaths of active duty officers. Sgt. Ian A. Loughran died in the hours after he began to suffer a heart attack at the funeral of his mentee, Cpl. Charles Barton Licato.

As a member of the arts community, I find it to be very exciting that Harford County will get a new arts center funded by a major contribution from Emily Bayless Graham ("Designs are unveiled for Harford arts center," Oct. 24). What bothers me however is the hiring of a New York firm to design it. Maryland, and particularly Baltimore and it's surrounding counties, have several extremely talented architectural firms, some of which have excellent reputations for this type of project.

Leave it to a bunch of dog-lovers, their canine friends, and the Humane Society of Harford County to turn part of a pet fair into a Guinness-certified world record. Two hundred dogs showed up to the Humane Society's Walk & Wag-a-Thon and Pet Fair last fall wearing identical bandanas. That was enough to certify the events as the world's largest gathering of dogs wearing the same bandana, which is a real category and was just officially announced. (Don't believe it? Look here .)
