Pylesville. -- It is graduation season again, and under the oak trees in the courtyard of North Harford High School the Class of '95, gowned in green and gold, is poised to take flight.The class is the 45th to graduate from North Harford. It is a small class, at least by metropolitan standards.About 220 members will receive their diplomas on this hot June evening. And the ambiance of the ceremony, like that of the community the school serves, is distinctly non-metropolitan.North Harford was built to serve the most rural section of what was then an entirely rural county.

Rumors often circulated that Tom Clancy's thrillers were so detailed in their descriptions of military and covert operations that the FBI had investigated the Baltimore novelist to determine his sources for works such as "The Hunt for Red October. " After Clancy's death in October 2013, The Baltimore Sun submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for any FBI files on Clancy. The FBI sent back 46 pages, including several redacted pages of background checks federal authorities had conducted.

Start with a purpose: Is it a special occasion or just a friendly gathering? Sort out duties to avoid collisions: Communicate. Before divvying up responsibilities, figure out cooking strengths of each individual -- who's best at side dishes, hor d'oeuvres, main dish and desserts. If holding a get-together for friends, it's fine to be more restrictive on invitations and invite only friends who know each other. Have a menu in mind and ask guests only to bring wine or beer. Keep in mind, the more formal the occasion, the less helpful it is to share responsibilities.

HarborView Towers, a condominium complex on the Inner Harbor, aims to become an iconic part of the Baltimore skyline now that it has revamped the beacon atop its east tower. "[It's] new and exciting, and I think people are just going to love it," said John Cochran, president of the council of unit owners at HarborView Towers. The new beacon on the building off Key Highway uses energy-efficient light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, which are not only environmentally friendly and cost-efficient, but offer the opportunity for ever-changing displays.

I am one of a set of identical triplets now in our 30s. For the first time since we were children, we want to dress alike.The occasion is a cocktail party reception where our father is being honored for his civic work.Growing up, we three constantly fought over clothing, and this is no exception. Because we are all tiny I want us to wear white. But they insist white should be worn only after Easter.Since you are all small, white or ivory suits would be appropriate for the occasion. White -- or winter white as it is often called -- is one of the most popular designer colors for winter.

A great big thank you to all you greeted me with much enthusiasm when I collected door to door for the Fourth of July celebration. Even the dogs were cooperative! In one house I saw an entire family chatting and sitting at their table having dinner. It looked like a Norman Rockwell scene. (I didn't bother them). I collected more than $821. Once again there was an opportunity to share Catonsville with very special people who rose to the occasion. Margaret Milleker Batimore

One afternoon, as I was driving to my home in Guilford aftercompleting several errands, the announcer on my car radio reported that the temperature was 102 degrees with the humidity at 42 percent. It did not surprise me, therefore, to notice a number of women walking along the street with their umbrellas up. This provided them protection, in a small way, from the direct rays of the sun.At the Civil War memorial service which was held at the monument in Loudon Park Cemetery June 1, there were a number of lovely ladies dressed in Confederate costumes, complete with hoop skirts, be-ribboned bonnets, lace fans and fringed parasols.

People aren't just "googling" at Google.com. They're also ogling, thanks to the artwork of Dennis Hwang. Hwang redesigns Google's logo on special occasions, turning the search engine's familiar four-color logo into fresh eye candy. For instance, to commemorate Leonardo da Vinci's birthday last month, Hwang changed the logo's colors to the chalky red tones of da Vinci's sketches, and replaced one "O" with a smirking Mona Lisa. Though Hwang, a former art student at Stanford University, likes celebrating artists best, his tweaked logos also have given birthday nods to Albert Einstein and Ray Charles, among others.

A Mount Airy man was given a four-year suspended sentence yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court after pleading guilty to raping his juvenile girlfriend, now 16, on many occasions between January 1996 and October 1997. The girl, who is not being named because of her age, had run away from her Mount Airy home several times to be with the 21-year-old defendant, said prosecutor Tracey A. Gilmore. The girl's mother told Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. that she did not know about her daughter's sexual relationship with the man until after the girl had gone to Virginia Beach, Va., with him. The woman said that on another occasion, her daughter ran away from home and was hidden by the man's family.

Offense has been Stevenson's calling card, and the reigning national champion has maintained that reputation by ranking ninth in Division III after averaging 14.7 goals. But the Mustangs (19-2) went on the defensive in their 15-9 thumping of Cabrini in an NCAA tournament second-round game Saturday night. The defense held a Cavaliers offense that led the nation with 19.7 goals per game to more than 10 goals below its season average and its worst shooting percentage (20.0 percent) of the season.

Three years before the next presidential election, Republican also-rans are making noises about trying again. The most conspicuous is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the Iowa caucuses in 2008 but quickly faded and pivoted to his own television show to lick his wounds and contemplate his future. Mr. Huckabee wisely decided to take a sabbatical from office-seeking in 2012 as another previous GOP loser, Mitt Romney, dug himself deeper in political obscurity by losing again.

What's a monument lighting without fish tacos or Polish sausage? On Thursday night, crowds arriving early for the annual lighting of Baltimore's Washington Monument will have plenty of food vendors to keep them company while they wait for things to get rolling. The dramatic monument lighting itself happens at approximately 7:45 p.m., and stage entertainment, which includes choirs and dancing Santas, begins at 6 p.m. But the festivities begin even earlier, at 5 p.m., with food and craft vendors assembling for a holiday village in Mount Vernon Place's west square, the main gathering space for the event.

Having won approval in both chambers of Maryland's General Assembly, a landmark bill to abolish the state's death penalty awaits only Gov. Martin O'Malley's signature before becoming law. It is a tremendous political and moral victory for Mr. O'Malley, a long-time opponent of capital punishment who campaigned for a repeal during his first term only to come up short. That leaves only one major item of unfinished business on his agenda regarding the issue: Commuting the sentences of the five men currently on Maryland's death row to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

Thursday marks the International Day of the Girl. As part of Garrison Forest School's Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) partnership with the Johns Hopkins University, we spent this past spring and summer as the first interns at Jhpiego, the JHU-affiliated nonprofit addressing health issues of girls, women and their families worldwide. We talked via email and Skype with girls around the globe and discovered just how similar our perspectives are. The GirlSpot posts we wrote for the Jhpiego Facebook page detail these common bonds — and highlight the differences in our lives, differences that often have tragic consequences for our global peers.
