Which Annapolis lawmakers work hard for the voters and which are hardly working? This week, as legislators got back to work -- or rest, as the case may be -- a watchdog group called the Maryland Accountability Project handed out "Crabbie" awards to those it says had the worst attendance records last session. "Lighthouse" awards went to those with the best. Among the Lighthouses was Sen. James Brochin, a Baltimore County Democrat who says he has never missed a vote in three years in office.

The tiny lighthouse's doors had been locked for years, and the inside had become messy and filled with cobwebs. But for Havre de Grace resident Anna M. Long, Concord Point Lighthouse represented an opportunity to restore the fond memories of her childhood - a place where she had collected stones and gone swimming.

A developer's vision for energizing Canton's waterfront includes changing a sleepy shopping area into a full-blown destination with hip restaurants, a hotel and condos - all punctuated by a landmark high-rise that would jut 295 feet above Boston Street, a height along the harbor now reached only by South Baltimore's HarborView tower. But where the developer sees signature architecture, a soaring edifice that will make people think "Baltimore," residents only see a looming threat to their neighborhood's character and too much density for the increasingly desirable community to handle.

A Memorable Place Lighthouse hostel: a tempting treat By Peggy Rowe SPECIAL TO THE SUN On Cape Vincent, N.Y., my husband, John, and I came upon the end of a narrow, country road running along the St. Lawrence River and saw a beautiful sight -- the Tibbetts Point lighthouse, overlooking where Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence come together. When we saw a sign that the former lightkeeper's house was actually a hostel, John remarked, "We've never spent the night in a hostel." "It's for young travelers who can't afford a motel," I said.
