Sitting with her eyes closed, Shawn Lockhart sketched images from her imagination onto a blank piece of paper with a colored pencil. Then she opened her eyes and finished crafting the multiple, overlapping, bird-like figures. Lockhart created a multitude of drawings using this new technique while living in Ireland several years ago. She also experimented with painting on wood panels. Fifteen of the drawings and eight paintings will be on display in Westminster this week in an exhibit that shows a different side of Lockhart, a local artist well-known for her stark black-and-white prints.

There are characters, and there are characters, and one of the area's true unique ones, Leonard "call me Len" H. Lockhart Sr., died Feb. 27, the day following his 85th birthday. Plenty of folks around Havre de Grace knew Mr. Lockhart and some had business dealings with him, among them Cecil Hill, Bob Wood and the rest of group that developed Bayview Estates, where the eponymous Lockhart Court is named for him. Mr. Lockhart was a lawyer and a banker, a mixture of Harold Hill, Seabright Cooley and Elmer Gantry to name a few literary characters that come to mind.

As a young man, Estes J. Lockhart never wanted to be a school administrator, certainly not a controversial one criticized near and far for Howard County's unusually strict residency rules.He wanted to be a novelist. Still does, actually.His love of literature led him to study English in San Francisco during the 1960s, to teach it in the Peace Corps in Turkey and then to become an English teacher when he returned in 1970. And it leads him to write fiction almost every night when he returns home from work as director of pupil services for Howard County schools.

The Amateur Spy By Dan Fesperman Knopf / 372 pages / $24.95 The role of the thriller in modern literature is vastly underrated. Genre fiction routinely gets short shrift in both critical reviews and literary exegeses. But in the post-Sept. 11 world, political thrillers, particularly those focused on espionage and the fluidity of political affiliations and allegiances, tell a story that is dramatically germane to the way we live now. Baltimore novelist and former Sun reporter Dan Fesperman writes top-flight thrillers.

LOCKHART, Texas - Anywhere else, this would be a little family squabble, an insignificant daddy-always-liked-you-better spat. But when you're talking Texas and you're talking barbecue, not much is little or insignificant. Particularly here, in the town that has been officially designated the Barbecue Capital of Texas, and where a family feud has split one of the state's most beloved barbecue joints in two. The beef briskets, the spicy sausages, the ribs and the pork chops are still coming out of the smoky pits here much as they have since the days when old Edgar "Smitty" Schmidt himself was manning the fires at Kreuz Market, a perennial on the "Best of" lists that Texas barbecue fans and the state's media obsessively keep.

With poems, prints and painting, Shawn M. Lockhart shows off her talents at a solo exhibit opening tomorrow at the Carroll County Arts Council gallery in Westminster. Many in the local arts community know Lockhart, who signs her work "Mara," for her stark black-and-white prints. But, the exhibit will show she is branching out. For nearly 30 years, Lockhart has called herself a printmaker, an artist who carves original designs into wood and transfers them to paper. Each print is one of a kind.

In this fast-paced electronic age with its computer-generated visuals, Shawn M. Lockhart prints words and images following an arduous tradition that dates to the Middle Ages. Lockhart's technique has her carving in reverse on wood blocks, or on softer linoleum "when my hands complain," she said. She then soaks the engraving in ink and prints it on heavy paper - replicating the process used centuries before the invention of the printing press. Now with 30 years' experience in what is today a rarely used form of printmaking, Lockhart is taking her craft to Ireland.

LOCKHART, TEXAS / / David Brent, the chief deputy sheriff of Caldwell County, has to be politically correct when making his rounds, especially when it comes to lunchtime. With four top barbecue joints all within his district, he prefers to eat rather than talk. The Lone Star State is widely known for its outstanding smokehouses, which produce some of the most succulent, slow-cooked meats on the planet. But this quiet town of 12,000, a 30-minute drive south of the state capital, has a special status.

WASHINGTON -- Fannie Mae's federal regulator said yesterday that the company's executives and board of directors were to blame for the accounting scandal that rocked the big mortgage company and said the firm must pay a $400 million fine. A stinging 348-page report by the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight said that senior management manipulated accounting at the giant company, that Fannie Mae "stonewalled" government investigators, and that Fannie Mae should further investigate employees associated with the accounting scandal.
