Baltimore County Golf announced Wednesday a new name for Longview Golf Course - Fox Hollow Golf Course. It is part of efforts to modernize the Timonium public course. The name was one of many submitted by area golfers and then narrowed to five choices. The Fox Hollow name and logo are a nod to the famous Longview foxes that were discovered in the 1980s stealing golf balls from the putting greens because they thought they were bird eggs. The $2.9 million in renovations that began last summer will include a state-of-the-art training facility and a redesigned back nine.

"Hands on a Hardbody," which was shown at the Maryland Film Festival and opens today at the Charles Theatre, is a documentary about a contest to win a fully loaded Nissan pickup truck in Longview, Texas. But that's the very least of it.In recording the experiences of a handful of Texans who gut out a grueling three-day marathon, S.R. Bindler has created a film of transcendent beauty and power. "Hands on a Hardbody" starts out as a slice of life and winds up being a funny and wise testimony to competition, human vulnerability, the unique tribal rituals of the contemporary South and, yes, the triumph of the human spirit.
