Art is not a team sport. That's what an instructor used to tell Ginger Peloquin, a resident artist at Howard County Center for the Arts in Ellicott City. It seems a pretty natural deduction. Artists are considered solitary figures, individual in mind and body of work. They're hardly the sort who meet for brainstorming sessions or to discuss how they can make their pieces more uniform. But for Peloquin and Jay Kissel, another resident artist, their new show is a team effort. "We observed each other's work and found a commonality," says Kissel, who lives in Columbia.

The nation's debt to men and women who serve in uniform can never be fully repaid. But Jane Kramer believes every little bit helps. She said that's why the Howard County Garden Club undertook the project to install a Blue Star Memorial marker, honoring present and former armed forces members, in the heart of Ellicott City. At the Howard County Welcome Center at 8267 Main St. in Ellicott City, a formal dedication was held Friday at 10 a.m., with live music, military ceremonies, presentations and comments from local elected officials.
