The Board of County Commissioners on May 24 unanimously approved a $1.066 million bid for construction of the first phase of the planned Leister Regional Park in Hampstead. Commissioner Haven Shoemaker reminisced on the late Bub Leister, for whom the park is named. Leister sold the land to the county more than 10 years ago before his death in 2006. "He sold it to the county for about half of what those guys were offering because he wanted it to be preserved as a green space for his community," Shoemaker said.

Mary M. Leister, whose nature columns were a fixture of The Sunday Sun for over 20 years, died of dementia March 29 at Hillside House in Clarksville. She was 85 and had lived in the assisted-living facility for the last five years. It was Mrs. Leister's early-morning perambulations accompanied by her dog Kuonny in the fields, marshes and woods near her Sykesville home that inspired the monthly columns. It was her deep love of nature and the countryside with all of its inhabitants -- from wildlife to plants, to the lowliest cricket and snake -- that entertained and enthralled Mrs. Leister.

Several times a year, the museum's Victorian parlor doubles as a tearoom with Leister presiding. The holiday teas, the most popular in the series, are the most festive and Leister's favorite.
