Tucked amid the bustle of highways, trains and BWI Marshall Airport lies Linthicum, a hamlet first developed as a "country suburb" and about to mark its centennial in 2008. The descendants of Abner Linthicum wouldn't recognize the place they marketed as minutes from Baltimore. Over a century, houses of varying age and size have been built, and their occupants are planning festivities to mark Linthicum's 100th year. "I can get downtown to Baltimore in minutes. It's not as congested in this village as other places I've lived," said John Lombardi, a semi-retired insurance executive.

The summer outdoor concert season is already in full swing, bringing all types of music - including bluegrass, big band, rock 'n' roll and classical jazz - to regional parks and other outdoor venues. Sponsored by various organizations and local businesses, all concerts are free. Folks need bring only folding chairs or blankets and picnic baskets. Something more is required of the volunteers who arrange these outdoor concerts. Now in her 22nd year as performing arts chairman for the eight-concert series sponsored by the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights, Jo Barker said her committee starts pursuing bands as early as January or February.
