Several boaters have written to ask about when the Coast Guard plans to pull the plug on the Long-Range Aids to Navigation (LORAN-C) signal and why. Outdoors Girl replies: LORAN-C has been around for a half-century plus two years, providing navigational aid in the 48 continental states and most of Alaska. And, like eight-track tapes, hair rollers the size of frozen juice cans and Wall Street ethics, LORAN-C has become obsolete, a symbol of simpler times when knowing where you were, within a quarter-mile or so, was good enough.

CHURCH CREEK -The rabbit had expired in the living room next to the wood stove. As any real estate agent can tell you, animal remains are a little like cluttered dens and ugly wallpaper. They don't show well. "Probably not the best selling point," Jordan Loran noted as he carried the carcass to the back door of the state-owned Linthicum House in Dorchester County. Not that the house is up for sale, exactly. Loran's employer, the State of Maryland, would actually be delighted to give it away, free, to anyone willing to relocate the rundown yet solid three-story structure.
