After visiting Twenty20 Cycling Co.'s sleek new Savage Mill showroom, one might be perplexed to hear co-owner Norman Brach claim the shop doesn't “sell bikes.” Indeed, there are a variety of road, mountain, triathlon, hybrid and urban bicycles for sale and rent, but Brach prefers to purvey the overarching experience of riding. “We sell cycling. As a verb. It's the experience we're promoting,” says Brach, who opened Twenty20's Savage shop in June with partners Kris Auer and Johnny May. The trio, whose original shop inhabits Baltimore's Hampden neighborhood, shares a goal of being approachable -- cutting out the intimidation factor Brach says exists in some specialty shops.

Grace Maynard, a retired Howard County antiques dealer, died Saturday from complications of a stroke at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Columbia. She was 91. She was born in Baltimore and raised in Windsor Hills. Her father, William Hard Maynard, who had been a Baltimore deputy state's attorney, had rewritten Maryland's penal code. Her mother, Helen Vail Maynard, was a homemaker.

For years, merchants and staff at Savage Mill have believed the place is haunted. Now Howard County Tourism Inc. is turning that into an asset for the 19th-century mill turned boutique shopping center. On Friday and Saturday nights through next month, the new Ghost Walks in Historic Savage Mill combines local history with tales of ghostly apparitions, unseen tricksters and unexplained occurrences. They also encourage visitors to shop and dine at the mill. It is a combination that has worked well in Ellicott City, where the tourism group's ghost tours have drawn approximately 4,000 people in the past year and where merchants saw ticket holders come in to redeem the discounts on the back of the passes.

Not too long ago, historic Savage Mill was a dilapidated and ramshackle ruin of a building, a sprawling expanse of empty space and light. Not much fun to look at, but it was heaven to a number of local artists -- a perfect place to paint, sculpt and be creative. These days, the newly gentrified Savage Mill has emerged as one of the region's most popular tourist attractions. It also houses far fewer struggling artists. In the early 1980s, the mill was used by dozens of local artists who used the Carding Building's open floor as studio space.
