A burger restaurant will open this fall at the Senator Theatre. The full-service eatery, Clark Burger, will be operated by James Clark, a bartender and manager at Little Havana, a popular waterside restaurant and bar on Key Highway. Little Havana partners Marc Gentile and Scott Donnelly are backing Clark in the Senator venture, but they won't be involved in the restaurant's operations, according to Gentile. Owned by the father-and-daughter team of James "Buzz" Cusack and Kathleen Cusack Lyon, the Senator theater reopened last fall after 18 months of renovations to the original auditorium and lobby and the addition of three smaller screens in adjoining buildings and the annexing of former commercial property on York Road for use as a restaurant.

James Clark Jr. is a familiar name to many because of his 28 years in the state legislature and his bustling farm in central Howard County. Now that name will be part of the landscape of Howard Community College, gleaming on the side of the library building in the center of campus. Yesterday, the college renamed the building - the first built on the Columbia campus more than 30 years ago - in honor of Clark, who was an early supporter of the school. He introduced legislation that gave the school its board of trustees after the county Board of Education bought the land and started construction.

Artist and teacher Alice Webb has been inspired by the beauty of Clarkland Farms for 27 years, ever since she moved into a house next door. Now Webb and her students are sharing the farm life through their art, with a show at Margaret Smith Gallery in Ellicott City through Dec. 8. "It's a special place to paint," Webb said of the farm. Along Route 108 in Howard County, the home of former state Sen. James Clark Jr. may be one of the most prominent remnants of the rural life that once dominated the area.

Sitting in the living room of his stone farmhouse, which is surrounded by fields of shoulder-high corn and pastures dotted with cattle and sheep, James Clark talked about his health at the age of 87 with the perspective of someone who has been farming most of his life. "You cannot overcome the forces of nature," he said. "It's irresistible." In recent weeks, Clark has been directing activities on his Ellicott City farm, but leaving the heavy chores and the midsummer heat to his part-time staff and family members.

James Clark Jr., former president of the Maryland Senate, was born in Howard County in 1918 and still lives there. This is an excerpt from his memoir, "Jim Clark Soldier, Farmer, Legislator," reprinted with permission. I was not yet six years old when I was packed off to first grade in a one-room school in Ellicott City, just west of the courthouse. The building was in great disrepair. We had a coal stove for heat and an outside toilet. Miss Isabel Brian was the teacher, and despite her best efforts, I got off to a very poor start, to put it mildly.

For Granville "Sonny" Wehland, the election of Barack Obama vindicated his efforts in the name of civil rights four decades ago. In the 1960s, Wehland worked with the late Sen. James Clark Jr. to garner support for anti-discrimination legislation that would allow blacks to enter public places in Maryland. A lifelong Democrat and ardent Obama supporter, Wehland said he didn't understand then - just as he can't comprehend now - why anyone cared about the color of someone's skin. "Obama wasn't the right minority for the job - he was the right candidate," the 74-year-old Howard County native said.
