The streets around City Dock in Annapolis flooded again Friday, closing the Spa Creek Bridge connecting the Eastport neighborhood with downtown for several hours. It was yet another reminder to Lisa Craig that she's in a race against time to protect one of Maryland's oldest communities from the rising waters of the Chesapeake Bay. "We've probably doubled the number of nuisance flooding events in the past several years," said Craig, director of historic preservation for the city of Annapolis.

The elderly woman who lives in the van in the shopping center on 41st Street in Hampden is Harriet Kahn. It says "Kahn" on the vanity plates of her van, but "Can" is how she pronounces her name because, she says, the softer "ah" (as in "Kaan") gives her name a pretentiousness she dislikes. Ms. Kahn is at most 5 feet tall; she says she'll be 80 in late March. She has small hands. Her hair is straight and gray; she keeps it wrapped with a scarf on cold days. She has sharp features and dark eyes with a certain savvy spark.

VISITORS to Dorchester County who seek Harriet Tubman's birthplace are headed for disappointment. They may find the historic marker near the tiny village of Bucktown, but the land where she spent most of her life as a slave is private property. Tourists sometimes mistakenly believe that an old hunting lodge may be her home and wander around it. Some worry the adventurous trespasser may find himself at the wrong end of a shotgun during hunting season. Ms. Tubman, one of the great heroines of American history, deserves better -- and so do the tourists who want to learn more about her Eastern Shore upbringing, her escape in 1849 and her multiple returns to free others.

Harriet Tubman, the Marylander credited with leading hundreds of slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad, was honored with a Google Doodle today. The Google search engine periodically uses an artistic interpretation of its logo, known as the Doodle, to honor famous people or commemorate holidays and events. The Tubman-inspired logo that appeared Saturday features a drawing of Tubman holding a lantern against a night sky, with the letters made to look like tree branches.

Media mogul Russell Simmons might have apologized for posting a controversial parody video on his YouTube channel that's become known as "The Harriet Tubman Sex Tapes. " But, the famed abolitionist's great-great-great grandniece isn't even close to forgiving him. In a two-paged open letter to Simmons that was emailed to a reporter at The Baltimore Sun, the artist Tina Martin Wyatt verges on accusing the entertainer of being a race traitor. "Your parody of Aunt Harriet is not unlike parodies of African Americans by racist individuals in this country and others abroad," Wyatt writes.

President Barack Obama's designation Monday of a new national monument to Harriet Tubman, who escaped slavery on a Dorchester County plantation in 1849, then helped guide scores of other slaves to freedom in the North during the decade before the Civil War, honors a small and unprepossessing African-American woman who played an outsized role in American history. Mr. Obama's proclamation sets aside the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument near the city of Cambridge on Maryland's Eastern Shore as a historical preservation site to be administered by the National Park Service.

After Ernestine Martin Wyatt helped stage a walkout decades ago over a lack of African-American history lessons at her high school, a teacher pulled her aside to ask about Wyatt's family ties to Harriet Tubman. The Maryland-born slave and famed conductor of the Underground Railroad left a personal legacy in her family, Wyatt, a distant niece of the abolitionist, said Saturday: a succession of strong women. And it's that more personal side of Tubman that Wyatt hopes America comes to know during the forthcoming centennial of her death.
