Maintaining an environmentally friendly landscape at her family's home in Long Reach comes as second nature to Janine Pollack, who loves gardening and the outdoors. The pluses, some obvious and some not, are numerous. They include the inherent adaptability of native plants to the area's climate as well as their ability to attract insects, which attract birds, which attract wildlife. But the primary ecological benefit - which goes undetected by most visitors surveying the natural beauty of Pollack's outdoor canvas - is the ability of strategically placed landscaping to prevent polluted stormwater runoff from spoiling waterways and eventually fouling the Chesapeake Bay. Such benefits, and the principles behind them, will explained to visitors Sept.

My oh my, schools have cut out handwriting. What do they think they are doing? How are children going to sign their name? Technology has brought many changes to our lives, but it doesn't mean we can dismiss handwriting, a basic skill. Especially in business, we must sign our names while we open a checking or savings account, sign for a loan or mortgage and any receipt must be signed when using a credit card - the preferred choice of payment for today. A waitress comes to your table and writes your order with a pen and paper, and then goes to the computer to put the order into the kitchen.

You won't find this on MapQuest, but the road to Augusta actually goes through Houston. For those who dream of playing the 2010 Masters but have yet to get a postmarked invitation, this weekend's Shell Houston Open represents a final hope. The winner gets in. Last week the Masters field added Louis Oosthuizen and K.J. Choi. The South African-born Oosthuizen won a European Tour event to move into the world's top 50; Choi tied for 17th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to remain in the top 50. For Masters purposes, that top-50 list is now frozen.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Within an hour of Tiger Woods' announcement last week that he would return to play the Masters, a prominent British bookmaker installed him as the 4-to-1 favorite. Four-to-1 for a guy who hasn't been fitted for a green jacket since 2005, who has not played a competitive round in four months, who just might be reminded of his personal flaws as he takes back the blade on a hellacious 6-footer? (TIGER is a CHEETAH T-shirt sold separately.) Seems absurd to me - and to a chunk of players on the PGA Tour.

IN ITS 67th year, the tradition-soaked Masters tournament, held annually at the exclusive Augusta National Golf Club, will be a bit different. Rain drenched the splendid Georgia course this week, so it may not play so hard and quick. Tiger Woods is going for an unprecedented third straight victory. And oh yes, there's that flap about women not being welcome as members of the club. That shouldn't be a problem, and ultimately it won't: Women will join the club's elite ranks - of rich executives - sooner rather than later.

For most of us, getting out of a tight situation means pulling the car out of a Canton parking spot or wriggling out of a size 2 dress.  But Baltimore magician Spencer Horsman often quite literally finds himself in a bind. Horsman will be featured on the show "Masters of Illusion" on the CW, according to a news release. The 27-year-old will escape from "the flaming jaws of death" and will emerge from shackles and an underwater tank in episodes 1 and 3 of the show. The premiere episode airs 8 p.m. Aug. 1. Horsman grew up in show business.

Won't be a contender Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune Last I checked, Tiger Woods is not a faucet. He can't simply be turned on (pun intended) or off in a matter of seconds. So given the length of his absence, the sense that his personal life remains a mess, the fact that Augusta National is one of the world's most difficult courses, the reality that he has not won here since 2005 and the difficulty he has had during practice rounds (he has hit some nasty hooks)

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Golf is the perfect sport for the obsessive personality, a giant gray area. You can't shoot a perfect round because there is no such thing. You can't have the perfect swing because there is no such thing. Even the best golfers find fault with their best rounds. Compulsive characters thrive in the vague climate. Everyone always thinks there is room to do better.The game is populated by those so single-minded, men who spend hundreds of hours hitting practice balls and talking elbow adjustment, men who die with their cleats on. Such tunnel vision is a part of every sport, of course, but it is suited to golf like Augusta to spring.

Longshoremen who went on strike last year at the port of Baltimore claim they are not liable for related losses sustained by their employers, in part because a coastwide labor contract banning such strikes does not apply to them. The claim was made in a federal court filing by Jennifer Stair, an attorney for the International Longshoremen's Association Local 333. The dockworkers union was sued last month by port employers for $3.86 million in damages — the amount arbitrator M. David Vaughn determined the employers lost during the union's three-day strike in October.

Former University of Maryland field hockey players Megan Fraser and Lucy Godfrey will play for the United States in the FIH Masters World Cup in Rotterdam, Netherlands, which begins next week. It's the first time the U.S. has entered teams in the Masters tournament since 1998. The 52-year-old Godfrey, originally from Bel Air, will be the goalie for the United States' over-50 team. There are also tournaments for the 40+, 45+, 55+, and 60+ age groups. “It's [been] a whirlwind,” said Godfrey, who now lives Stewartstown, Pa. “I still have to pinch myself.” Godfrey has tried to stay as involved with field hockey as possible since playing at Maryland from 1981-83, both working as an official and at one point coaching an Olympic developmental team.

Joey Jobes' workshop is a small, two-story building in Havre de Grace, minutes from the Susquehanna Flats at the top of the Chesapeake Bay. The space is dominated by saws, knives, paints and hundreds of blocks in various stages of transforming into ducks, geese and other birds. Most horizontal surfaces are covered in tools and supplies, but Jobes seems to know where everything is. "My life is business," Jobes said. A second-generation decoy carver in the self-proclaimed decoy capital of the world, he has been in his business for most of his 48 years and goes about it with practiced ease.

Edgar Allan Poe was a pretty open-minded guy. "I do not believe that any thought, properly so called," he once said, "is out of the reach of language. " So this Baltimore favorite son presumably would have been cool with the "Homo Poe Show," which started as a single thought - Is there a way to see Poe through a gay lens? - and resulted in enough provocative language to launch an evening-length collection of four short theater works. It's the brainchild of Steven J. Satta, founding member and artistic director of Iron Crow Theatre Company, a Baltimore troupe that emphasizes works with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender perspectives.

What passed for a juicy storyline last year was whether Masters officials had sapped all the joy from Augusta National with the addition of trees, a second cut of rough and 400-plus yards. Turns out, they hadn't. Chad Campbell, for one, played his first 16 holes in 9-under-par. This year's top storyline does not involve alleged Tiger Woods mistresses named Jamie and Jaimee or Rachel and Raychel. Not directly, anyway. But the major question heading into today's opening round is simple: How will Woods play?

Youthful playing comes naturally for George Li, because the pianist is only 18 years old. This precocious talent performs for the Candlelight Concert Society on Saturday, March 22, at 8 p.m., at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre. His program covers a lot of musical territory. The classicism of the late 18th century is represented by the Haydn Sonata in B minor, Hob. XVI: 32. He moves into mid-19th-century romanticism with two works by a master of writing for the keyboard, Chopin's Nocturne in B Major and Sonata No. 2 in B-flat minor.

Sixteen-year-old Eleanor Weir held her right leg out in front of her, arched that foot and brought her toes delicately down to the floor, then back up again. She was pretending that the floor was a cat, and she was trying to pet it with her foot. "Yup, bup, bup, bup" guest teacher Gerard Charles said, counting out the beat at Towson's Carver Center for Arts & Technology. Eleanor and 27 other cat petters in training were taking an intermediate-level ballet class with Charles, the ballet master for the Joffrey Ballet.
