1795: The Post Road Harford County's Post Road has been in existence since the 1660s. Mostly following present day Route 7, the Post Road was a vital thoroughfare connecting the entire Eastern Seaboard. Though well used by all - from dignitaries such as George Washington to merchants and artists such as Charles Willson Peale - the Post Road was notorious for its deplorable conditions. By 1795, the road had not much improved when Irish-born Isaac Weld began his exploration of America. On Nov. 16, Weld, who wrote about and sketched scenes from his travels, left Philadelphia for Baltimore via stagecoach.

There was a time when beverages were as seasonal as foods, a time when the harvests were as evident in cups and mugs as on the dinner plates. Pumpkin ale is an example of such a beverage. Largely a seasonal oddity these days, it was once common on tables wherever pumpkins were grown. Those were the days before sophisticated distribution networks, when people ate and drank whatever they or their neighbors produced. Now, with brand names prizing consistency over local flavors, you expect ale or beer to taste the same in Montana as in Maryland.

That marked the beginning of a growing involvement in the community and the government, marked by a consistent concern for the city I love. I'll never leave Aberdeen. This is home.My involvement in civic organizations began in 1971, as a member of the Jaycees. I served as president in 1975, and, in 1977, was selected to be a senator, the organization's highest honor.

The 5 a.m. wake-up on the day after Thanksgiving was brutal but worth it for Chris and Cynthia Soucie and their two children, who piled into their car and set off for another holiday weekend of youth ice hockey at the Columbia Ice Rink. As thousands of Maryland residents streamed to shopping centers and malls for Black Friday holiday bargains, a few dozen dedicated people, such as the Soucies of Charlottesville, Va., rose before dawn yesterday to get their kids to the annual eastern regional Silver Stick youth hockey tournament.

The desperate search for a missing 2-month-old girl snarled traffic across the region yesterday after the state's first use of its Amber Alert highway warning system apparently frightened and confused motorists. Traffic experts say electronic messages flashing above major Maryland roads - on the same day that Osama bin Laden's terrorist network appeared to encourage attacks - might have left motorists believing that police were searching for terrorists and not for a missing infant. "We got word from 911 that people didn't know what Amber Alert meant," said State Highway Administration spokeswoman Valerie Edgar.
