Better late than never, conservationists are saying of last week's news that the state will purchase 100 acres around an environmentally sensitive trout stream in Gambrills.The state Department of Natural Resources had pledged two years ago to acquire property along the Jabez Branch to protect the last-of-its-kind stream from the damaging effects of development.DNR Assistant Secretary MiKe Nelson renewed that pledge Thursday before the Severn River Commission.Apologizing for the delay, Nelson said the Department of General Services -- the state purchasing agency -- became mired in a web of property deeds that made ownership unclear.

Watching bad movies just hasn't been any fun since they left. You tried talking to yourself. You brushed up on your pop culture references and exchanged witty criticisms of '50s monster movies with the mirror. But you didn't have theater seats to sit in. Your obnoxiousness was feigned and halfhearted. And, frankly, your toaster oven just couldn't cut it as a friendly robot companion.Thank goodness "Mystery Science Theater 3000" is back on the air.The hippest slice of geek heaven on television, "MST3K" has finally come to roost with the fans who can appreciate it most.
