Money magazine recently ranked the combined Columbia/Ellicott City area No. 2 on its "Best Places to Live in America" list. A less secure burg might not have gone all out to celebrate coming in behind someplace with "prairie" in its name. (Eden Prairie, Minn., was No. 1 in the best small city category.) But Howard County celebrated its secondary status in a big way at Centennial Park Wednesday night. With the song "It Takes Two" playing in the background, a collection of local No. 2s took the stage.

Crofton Town Hall is the kind of place where visitors knock before entering -- it's a little white-shingled house on a residential street, and the receptionist hollers a greeting from the top of the stairs. It's just around the corner from the school and playground where the annual Easter egg hunt is held.
