WESTMINSTER — With a trio of figures holding the world and a theme of "Building the Future," a new logo for Carroll County Public Schools was unveiled this week at the Aug. 8 Board of Education meeting. The logo is a variation of a design developed by Beth Sheedy, a 2012 graduate of Francis Scott Key High School. Sheedy had developed a logo based on a system-wide project to come up with new look to represent the new theme, "Carroll County Public Schools - Building the Future. " The process stems from a December 2011 initiative that created a new mission statement for the school system with the "Building the Future" theme.

All Frederick E. Bouchat says he wanted years ago was recognition for his idea for the Ravens team logo. Since the South Baltimore resident first sketched a flying raven clutching a shield with a "B" and faxed it to the Maryland Stadium Authority 16 years ago, he has won a court case crediting him with creating the Baltimore Ravens' first logo. But he has never been compensated. Bouchat's long-running dispute with the Ravens took a new turn last week when he accused the franchise of another copyright infringement, this time because it appears in photos displayed at M&T Bank Stadium.

Beginning in the fall, McDaniel College will have a new Green Terror mascot. The school announced Tuesday the creation of a "new visual identity" for its athletic program, which also includes a new logo, starting with the 2012-13 academic year. Each of McDaniel's 24 varsity sports will also have a sport-specific logo, according to a news release from the college. A committee of student-athletes, coaches, faculty and alumni worked closely with Francis Santaquilani and FS Design of Chattanooga, Tenn., to create the new Green Terror identity through a process that started in September 2011, the college said.

It is amazing how the Under Armour line of apparel has caught on with the school kids. I had a chance to attend grandfather's day recently and stood in the back of the room watching the kids sitting on the floor and singing. Initially, I thought all of the kids were in uniform, but when I looked more closely I was surprised to see that all the shirts bore the Under Armour logo. Also, at a recent soccer game many of the players' fathers also wore shirts with the Under Amour logo.

The Orioles break out the cartoon bird logo, and all of a sudden they're unbeatable. Coincidence? Well, yeah, almost certainly so. But it's hard to deny there are some good vibes reverberating through the city right now. Camden Yards has a new rooftop bar in center field, that adorable grinning bird is everywhere you look, and the team actually appears competitive. Think back to 1997, when the Denver Broncos changed their logo and uniforms. The next thing you knew, John Elway was windmilling into the end zone in the first of two Super Bowl victories.

Baltimore-based Pompeian Inc. has become the first olive oil maker to have the quality of its products backed by the United States Department of Agriculture, the company announced. The manufacturer has obtained approval for its extra virgin and extra virgin organic olive oils through the USDA's Quality Monitoring Program, which tests products to verify purity and quality. To enter the USDA program, Pompeian agreed to unannounced visits and testing of product samples. The product verification will allow the privately owned company to start placing a USDA logo on its products this month and will give consumers additional assurances, said David Bensadoun, chief executive officer of Pompeian.

Pimlico Race Course has a new logo. The second-oldest racetrack in the United States unveiled its logo Tuesday. The design features a cupola weather vane -- an iconic track feature -- and a 'Pimlico' script with 'Home of the Preakness' written below. "We wanted a fresh look before returning next month for the spring meet," Maryland Jockey Club president Tom Chuckas said in a news release. "The great Alfred Vanderbilt once said Pimlico 'is an accepted American institution, devoted to the best interests of a great sport, graced by time, respected for its honorable past.' Pimlico is steeped in tradition and we feel the new logo properly celebrates one of the most historic racetracks in the world.

Get out your crayons and color me stupid, but as I sit here wondering what great mind decided that the Columbia Association logo must change because it can't be scaled down for the latest social media apps, I have to think "What would Jim Rouse do?" As early settlers, the People Tree had and still does have such significance to those of us who moved from major metropolitan areas — in our case, Chicago — where inequality among peoples was rampant. One could sit at the lakefront and look up at the People Tree and imagine the makeup of those 66 figures.

For nearly half a century, Columbia residents have looked to the "People Tree" sculpture as a symbol of founder James Rouse's vision of an inclusive, connected community. Now, the organization that runs the planned town says it will drop images of the tree — a cluster of 66 interconnected human figures — from its signs, uniforms, stationery and business cards at a cost of as much as $200,000. The Columbia Association's People Tree logo is partly a victim of changing times — officials say it doesn't work well for social media or mobile devices.
