Starting with this year's celebration, Bel Air's annual July 4th parade will follow Main Street from beginning to end, taking a slightly different route than past years, the Bel Air Independence Day Committee confirmed Thursday. In a news release, the committee said it is confident that the alteration is a "win-win-win" situation - better for the spectators, better for the parade participants and better for the volunteer staff running the parade. The parade will step off as usual at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4, at the intersection of Gordon and North Main streets, in front of the Harford County Historical Society building (the old Post Office)

Fourth of July parades are a little bit of everything that defines an American community - bands, veterans, fire engines, dancers and, yes, politicians. The parades held on the nation's most patriotic holiday instill pride and provide a link to the past. We leave them glowing. Yet, we are also leaving them lately with a handful of coupons, handbills and business cards that were given out along the parade route by businesses with units in the parade. Some of these parade units are little more than rolling billboards for commercial enterprises making little, if any, effort at embracing the theme of the day. To some, it's more about brand enhancement than patriotism.

To Deontae Smith's mother, there was no question her son had been to the Super Bowl parade on Tuesday. And she's upset that Baltimore police didn't make the same connection sooner. Deontae was fatally stabbed outside a McDonald's restaurant at Howard and Fayette streets downtown during a fight involving a large group of teens three blocks from the parade route, police said. Two other teens were also injured, and no suspect has been identified. Baltimore police said Tuesday that the stabbing incidents weren't related to the parade but said Wednesday that they believed Smith had been at the parade.

Prime vantage points for Catonsville's Fourth of July parade are a valuable commodity. For proof, take a ride along Frederick Road, where for days people have been staking their claims with lawn chairs. "I can't believe this," said Denny Laumann, who lives in the 1200 block of Frederick Road. "The parade was three days away, and they were already putting out their chairs." Laumann, however, quickly followed suit. "Once someone puts them out," he said, "then you have to put them out." This week, Laumann painted a white bench that will provide seating for some of the 25 people he has invited to watch one of the area's most popular parades, in its 55th year.

NEW YORK -- With golden sunlight glazing the autumn leaves and a light breeze sweeping down Broadway, it seemed a great day to honor John Glenn, and for tens of thousands of people, it was.But for the longest time yesterday morning, almost the only people to show up to honor the 77-year-old astronaut, U.S. senator and undisputed American hero were the police, firefighters and sanitation workers assigned to handle the crowd.Once the parade got under way, crowds were -- by New York standards -- modest if not thin, with indications along the traditional parade route that Mayor Rudolph Giuliani might have overestimated the public's appetite for a third ticker-tape extravaganza since October.

The flowers left in condolence are a kind but painful reminder that De'ontae Smith is gone, as is the funeral program his mother carries around to remember the boy stabbed to death downtown just hours after the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl victory parade. Chevita Bumbrey and her husband, Donae Wright, have struggled with De'ontae's conspicuous absence. He could usually be found slouching on the couch playing video games or dancing the "mump" to rap music - shuffling wide-legged on the wood floor.

Tiffany Hodge said she brought her son to the stadium from East Baltimore with hopes that he could see his hero, running back Ray Rice, but an unruly crowd overwhelmed them and both were knocked unconscious. She said her son, Tyrek, suffered a concussion, an injury to his eye, and still has a swollen face.

A new parade route and a touch of irreverence will mark tomorrow's Columbus Day parade, a Baltimore tradition since 1890. The parade will feature comedian Don Novello in his best-known role as Father Guido Sarducci, the chain-smoking, trash-talking Vatican gossip columnist. The faux priest will ride in a Dodge Viper behind Columbus impersonator Don Castronova, organizers said. This year's parade is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. in Mount Vernon Square rather than in Federal Hill. Organizers said the change makes more room for spectators and parking.
