Leave it to kids to articulate concepts simply. It would be hard to disagree with the sentiment of a little girl who says, "I had this dream that I was cleaning up the environment -- and everybody was helping me."The girl is one of a number of youngsters who speak clearly as part of "Earth to Kids: A Guide for a Healthy Planet," a documentary which premieres at 8 tonight on HBO's premium cable service. And like a previous HBO show last year which tipped children off to some deceptive advertising techniques, this show (produced with Consumer Reports Television)

I recently submitted a proposal to the Baltimore Development Corp. in reference to The Sun's front page article, "Reinvigorating Baltimore's waterfront," published in early May. No response, not even a thank you for the suggestion, was received. Jean Marbella , in the Sunday Sun, was somewhat critical of many of the grandiose and expensive recommendations proposed by the BDC. My idea would come with minimal start-up costs and would instill pride in our city and state and enrich the minds of Marylanders and visitors alike.

Maryland Public Television launches a new documentary series this week titled "Our Town." And while it's based on a simple premise, it's loaded with rich possibilities for alternative ways of storytelling and the use of new technology to empower citizens to define themselves to some extent for TV and online audiences. "Unlike a lot of historical documentaries seen on television," MPT says in a statement of purpose, "the 'Our Town' series will explore different Maryland communities through the eyes (and camera lenses)

There are days when the currents of history flow together to illuminate a particular place or time. So it is here in Baltimore where President-elect Barack Obama will pause today to speak on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend as he travels to Washington. Mr. Obama's trip by rail from Philadelphia to his inauguration Tuesday is intended to evoke memories of Abraham Lincoln's inaugural journey, and Baltimore is rich with the ghosts of people who played significant roles in the long struggle of African-Americans , a journey in which his election represents an important milestone.

One summer afternoon I was driving some Midwestern relatives through Maryland's Eastern Shore on our way to the Atlantic Ocean when one of my kinfolk asked me a question. What kind of life form, he wanted to know, are "lopes"?"Lopes," sometimes spelled "loupes," are, of course, cantaloupes. These spellings, which my relative had seen at several roadside stands along the edge of Route 50, are Eastern Shore shorthand for the sweet fruit that makes summer breakfasts memorable.The question reminded me that one of the duties of playing host to visitors to Maryland is translating our food-talk.

Hurricane Isabel left such an impression on the Tilghman Island Inn on Maryland's Eastern Shore -- about $400,000 worth -- that its owners gave it a permanent marker. The inn's remodeled restaurant now is called Isabel's. "She was the one that destroyed it, and she stayed for awhile -- so we figured we'd have some fun with it," said Jack Redmond, who has co-owned the inn for 15 years. "It's better than crying. "We say, 'She came, she saw, she conquered' -- and we redecorated," Redmond added.

A regional web of fiber-optic cable would spread from Maryland's Eastern Shore to its western mountains under a plan by local governments to tap federal stimulus money for communications expansions. If the effort is successful, it could mean $100 million or more flowing into Maryland, out of a $7.2 billion chunk of federal money set aside for fiber-optic projects. Working separately, two groups of local governments are working to snare their share of funds, which officials said could create networks that would be cheaper than buying the service from private companies.

Emergency legislation allowing foreign workers to return to jobs at crab-picking houses on Maryland's Eastern Shore cleared its last major hurdle yesterday as the House of Representatives easily approved the measure, which supporters slipped into an unrelated military spending bill. The Senate is expected to send the whole bill to President Bush for his signature next week. That should start a process that will let hundreds of Mexican workers, mostly women, come back to the United States to spend the rest of the crab season working in seafood processing plants that are anxious to have them.
