Heavy and steady, but not extraordinary. That's how authorities described the traffic yesterday, the end of the Memorial Day weekend. There were the usual bumper-to-bumper lines along westbound Route 404, U.S. 50 and the Bay Bridge, marking the way home to the Baltimore area from the Delaware and Maryland beaches. But with the exception of a two-vehicle accident on the Eastern Shore that temporarily closed part of the highway, major accidents were few. "From what I understand, we've had no significant problems," said Teri Moss, spokeswoman for the Maryland Transportation Authority.

To protect Maryland's multimillion-dollar poultry industry from disease, the state agriculture secretary imposed strict limits yesterday on where farmers may obtain birds. The order prohibits turkeys or chickens in states under quarantine for avian influenza from entering Maryland. It also bans farmers from buying birds at auctions, fairs or other venues at which poultry from multiple locations or sources is sold. While not a threat to humans, avian influenza can quickly devastate poultry flocks.

Kent County isn't exactly known for its artwork. One of Maryland's most rural areas, the county is better known for its tractors, crabs and antique shops. The folks at Artworks would like that to change. The organization, which promotes local arts and culture, hosts its annual Studio Tour this weekend with about 35 studios in the county. Participants have all day Saturday and Sunday to drive across Kent County and some of Queen Anne's County, soaking in the scenery and stopping to meet local artists and peruse their wares.

It's a room, a small one at the entrance to the Anne Arundel County Courthouse, with a little plaque at its doorway that says Courthouse Museum. Save for a smattering of items stored there, it's empty. It's been that way, with rare exceptions, for the more than five years since the restoration of the historic building on Church Circle in Annapolis. But this year it is expected to become a window into the ties between the law, the area's history and its social fabric. With grant money and funds raised privately, the Anne Arundel Bar Foundation, the charitable arm of the Anne Arundel Bar Association, is moving toward putting exhibits there that spotlight the community and legal cases, and using the century-old second floor with its grand balcony to dramatize interesting trials heard in the courthouse.

It was a deadly day on Maryland roads. The 24-hour period from noon Wednesday to noon yesterday brought six deaths in five collisions in the state. The victims, two male and four female, ranged in age from 17 to 65. All were Marylanders. Last year, Maryland had 651 traffic deaths - a rate of just fewer than two a day. If a toll of six a day were sustained during a year, the state would have 2,190 deaths annually. Three of the deaths occurred in three separate crashes in Anne Arundel County.

Awhile ago, an anonymous wag ordered up a batch of bumper stickers printed with what has to go down as one of the most ignored sentiments in the recent history of adhesive humor: "Welcome to the Eastern Shore. Now go home!" From Elkton to Crisfield and places in between, newcomers are settling on the Shore as though the state's portion of the Delmarva Peninsula had been kept under wraps for ages. So much new development is under way or planned that the region faces an extraordinary jump in population, from 425,000 to 585,000 in the next 25 years, according a story reported by Sun writers Rona Kobell and Chris Guy. As dramatic as a 38 percent general increase in the number of residents is by itself, it's more astonishing to learn that some towns are anticipating - even welcoming - growth that will more than double their size.
