A zoo menagerie - including a parrot, a boa constrictor and an African pygmy hedgehog - greeted 5-year-old Finn Seamans of Odenton on Wednesday when he arrived at a courtyard between two office buildings in Elkridge. But the animals, provided by the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore , were only a preview of coming attractions. This month, Finn and his parents leave for a trip to California's wine country to admire giraffes and wildebeests at an African-style preserve, thanks to Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic.

A lawsuit alleging that the ex-president of the Odenton Volunteer Fire Company sexually abused two former volunteers when they were teenage recruits and that their complaints went unheeded has ended in a six-figure settlement. "In the world of public entities, it is particularly significant settlement," said Joyce E. Smithey, attorney for the men, who were unnamed in the lawsuit against the fire company and Anne Arundel County. The settlement, reached in the spring, plus a recent end to a dispute over legal fees, wraps up a lawsuit filed in January 2008 based on allegations of sexual wrongdoing that one accuser said began in 2003, when he was 19, and the other said started in 2004, when he was 16. The lawsuit was a significant factor in the county's decision not to insure volunteer companies for anything beyond fire and rescue operation as of last July 1. "The whole thing about being an insurer is to have some say over how to limit the risk," said Anne Arundel County Attorney Jonathan Hodgson.

When developers promised to build a $38 million, 700-seat elementary school in Odenton, Anne Arundel County officials embraced the proposal as a way to ease overcrowding in other area schools. They even tentatively gave the school a name: Evergreen Elementary. But plans for the school have met an obstacle. The Forks of the Patuxent, the community in which the proposed development is located, refuses to lift a covenant that the land be reserved for adult communities. Forks resident Patrick Padilla, 42, said residents who declined to lift the covenant requiring 55-and-older properties were concerned that a new housing development around the school would generate more traffic and crime without the age restriction.

Sometimes the best flavors pop up in the least likely places - such as a strip mall on Route 175 near Fort Meade. That's where Bangkok Kitchen has done business for nearly 20 years. From the outside, the shopping center has seen better days. But don't let that stop you. Bangkok Kitchen's excellent Thai food is much more memorable than the building's rundown exterior would indicate. Serious foodies will recognize the area, too. Just down the street, Grace Garden has been making adventurous Chinese-food lovers drool for years.

On a hot day in May in a patch of grass near power lines in Odenton, Jared Conover and Ryan Smith are hard at work building a wooden frame that will soon be used in their new obstacle course. Insects buzz and a neighbor's chickens squawk in a nearby pen as the two men picture the frantic, grueling scene when the obstacles they're hammering, drilling and screwing together in this rural setting are put to use. "This one is a rope and chain traverse. This will be up 10 feet in the air, with cross beams and ropes hanging," Smith says.

For more than two decades, residents of western Anne Arundel County have fought against proposed rubble landfills that they say would bring traffic, dust and noise to their community. Now their hopes rest with the fate of a bill before the County Council that would ban such landfills from residential zones, instead relegating them to industrial areas. Several members of the County Council seemed eager to pass the bill at their last meeting, but the county's top lawyer cautioned that such a change to zoning rules comes with the risk of lawsuits.
