In America, the land of strongly held opinions, a whiff of controversy about the proper way to celebrate Independence Day seems positively patriotic. So it was in Bel Air. Complaints of animal cruelty didn't stop the frog-hopping contest or turtle race at Shamrock Park on Friday morning, though organizers said that the number of contestants - 144 frogs and 105 turtles - was down from last year. A (comparatively) speedy turtle named Squirt won a trophy on behalf of 14-year-old Jessica Douglass of Whiteford, who has been coming to the derby for as long as she can remember.

When I received this assignment - following thoroughbred racehorses and their trainers through an arduous road trip - the editor warned, "It's going to be a long day." "Where am I headed?" I asked. He replied, "We'll start at Pimlico, stop at Laurel and then down to Virginia, Colonial Downs." My next question was, "Do I have to ride with the horses?" The editor chuckled, confidently declared "no" and explained that I'd be riding in the van with trainers. And then he cautioned again, "It'll be a really long day."

Prime vantage points for Catonsville's Fourth of July parade are a valuable commodity. For proof, take a ride along Frederick Road, where for days people have been staking their claims with lawn chairs. "I can't believe this," said Denny Laumann, who lives in the 1200 block of Frederick Road. "The parade was three days away, and they were already putting out their chairs." Laumann, however, quickly followed suit. "Once someone puts them out," he said, "then you have to put them out." This week, Laumann painted a white bench that will provide seating for some of the 25 people he has invited to watch one of the area's most popular parades, in its 55th year.

It's time to move the chairs. More than a week after back-to-back snowstorms buried Baltimore, neighborhoods still resemble a yard sale after a hurricane - littered not only with chairs but with bar stools and ottomans, kitty litter containers and potted plants, Formica tables and ironing boards put down by weary residents claiming title to parking spaces they had spent hours shoveling. But now, the new mayor's magnanimous gesture of not enforcing the illegal claiming of public space is over.

It's time to move the chairs.

No need to dream of a white Christmas this year. With nearly two feet of the stuff on the ground thanks to last weekend's record December snowstorm, anything short of a sustained tropical heat wave between now and Friday has pretty much guaranteed that snow will still be blanketing the region for the holiday. And while the storm caused no small inconvenience to people - for retailers, losing the Saturday before Christmas, one of the busiest shopping days of the year, is particularly worrisome - it's hard not to view the big storm of 2009 as something of a success.

With cascades of shrieks and the pounding of oh-so-many teenage feet, they heralded his coming. At the center of the herd, rolling down York Road, was a National Guard Humvee with a lanky young man waving from its open roof. And they cheered again last night as the Olympic champion strolled onto the stage at historic Fort McHenry, celebrating as they watched each of his wins. Michael Phelps played it cool in the eye of this pubescent maelstrom, staring at the throngs of young women along the parade route through sunglasses, grinning far more casually than he had after his narrowest wins at the Beijing Olympics.
