As she wends her way each morning among the three garden plots at her home on Summer Solstice Farm, Nora Crist carefully discerns which fruits and vegetables are ready to be lovingly plucked from their soil beds and sold that day. It's an ability she's been cultivating since she was a 7-year-old girl working alongside her grandfather, the late Sen. James Clark Jr., at the family's roadside stand on Route 108, which is just around the corner from...

When Cider Mill Farm in Elkridge closed in March, making way for a development of 94 homes, some saw the demise of this favored destination of Howard schoolchildren as further evidence of the decline of family-owned farms in the county. But this weekend's opening of a likely replacement - Clark's Elioak Farm on Route 108 in Ellicott City - shows how Howard farmers are continuing to innovate to keep agriculture thriving. They are adding tourist-friendly attractions such as hayrides, petting farms and corn mazes to keep their farms profitable.

Howard Community College leaders dedicated the school's renovated library Monday, with Board of Trustees chairman James Truby calling it the "new and improved hub" of the school. The $19 million project took three years to complete, resulting in upgraded study space, technology and laboratories. The revamped facility is named after the late state Sen. James Clark Jr. of Howard County. Originally called the Learning Resources Center, the building was the first to be built at the college.

A two-alarm fire destroyed two barns on the historic Clark farm in Ellicott City yesterday, forcing the closure of a section of Route 108 for more than nine hours and causing minor delays for some school buses. There were no injuries from the fire, said Bill Mould, spokesman for the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services. Firefighters were hampered because they first had to run nearly three-quarters of a mile of hose to get water from Route 108 to the fire, which was reported at 1 p.m. and contained 90 minutes later.

Martha and Harold Clark learned the value of estate planning the hard way. They vowed never again. Over three years, the Clarks got their affairs in order, certain that their three children and five grandchildren would be financially secure. In the past two weeks, though, their confidence has turned to alarm, anger and a sense of betrayal. The causes of their profound emotional shift are proposed changes to further restrict development in western Howard County. Those changes, Martha Clark says, will produce economic "mayhem" for her heirs and for other farming families in the county.

New York - The branches are from Connecticut, but Martha Clarke is in hell. Or, she's in paradise. Sometimes, it's hard to tell the difference. On stage, half a dozen dancers preparing for a new staging of The Garden of Earthly Delights wave bare tree branches aloft, then twirl together in a circle. A highly anticipated revival of the groundbreaking 1984 production, based on a 1504 painting by Hieronymus Bosch, opens Wednesday off-Broadway. "Stay as close together as you can, girls," says Clarke from the audience, holding her arms in front of her, and then sweeping her palms inward.
