The enlargement and improvement of the I-83 overpass at Middletown Road in Parkton has now been going on for well over a year to the delight of the numerous drivers trying to enter 83 or exit to go home, and those traveling to or from York. We are talking about an improvement job on a bridge with a span of maybe 300 feet over a freeway. Just recently, they were repaving the old span. There is hope. In the year 55 B.C. Caesar decided to show the warmongering German tribes that he could indeed cross the broad, swift and deep river Rein at will.

In the grand scheme of things, most of the issues that seem important to a particular generation fade with time, even as the things that are truly important remain so throughout the ages. Thus, it isn't much of a surprise that people in Harford County feel strongly enough to turn out in substantial numbers in Bel Air to talk about a decision being made half a world away by people over whom they hold no sway. The decision being considered that drew a crowd over the weekend at St. Margaret Catholic Church in Bel Air is that of who will be the next pope.

Fortune's favorites in Republican Rome are a dinarius a dozen in this book, but the fickle deity only takes a few of them seriously. Colleen McCullough, up to her old tricks as a one-woman show, tells us their stories with no visible letdown in this third volume (after "The First Man in Rome" and "The Grass Crown") of her five-book series about the fall of the Roman Republic.If possible, it's even better than the first two. Or maybe I'm just getting used to all those ponderous Roman names (Quintus Caecilius Metellus Pius)

Lavinia By Ursula K. LeGuin Harcourt / 282 pages / $24 At nearly 80, Ursula K. LeGuin is one of the doyennes of science and speculative fiction. Her work has received the most important awards for her genre, from the Nebula to the Hugo, as well as the National Book Award and the Pushcart Prize. She is - to use a much overused, but in her case apt, term - an icon. That said, LeGuin has not written a new work in a decade, although she's done a series of important translations, including one of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching.

ROME -- He could be a dentist or a promising bank clerk, with his well-ironed shirts, thin-rimmed spectacles and cool, serious air, the kind of 40-ish yuppie many a Roman matron would be glad to have as a son-in-law.On the posters, with his jacket slung nonchalantly over his shoulder, and on television, he looks highly respectable, appealing and reassuring -- and Gianfranco Fini, leader of Italy's extreme right-wing neo-Fascist party, next week may be mayor of Rome.The run-off between Mr. Fini and his Green left-wing opponent, Francesco Rutelli, in the second round of the municipal elections tomorrow is going to be extremely close.

Lies, lies, lies! This is what President Barack Obama and the Democrats tell the American public. The sky is not falling if we sequester $85 billion out of a $3.563 trillion budget. That's just about 2 percent! We are 31 percent over budget, or $1.128 trillion. The American public should demand these politicians put forth a balanced budget; we are already $16 trillion dollars in debt! Wake up people, Rome is burning! Thom Carroll, Baltimore

Growing up in Rome, not far from Saint Peter's Basilica (whose dome I could see from my parents' bedroom) I did not think much of my circumstance. I thought it was just normal to drive my scooter by the Vatican walls and to see the Swiss guards seriously guarding the entrance to Vatican City. I also thought it normal to be able to go into Vatican City (as my father was a Vatican employee) to buy cheaper gas and imported goods free of the high Italian taxes. It is only after moving to America that I realized the exceptional luck of my youth.

Showing her knack for timing, director Christy Stanlake has announced the U.S. Naval Academy Masqueraders will bookend Halloween with weekend performances of "Titus Andronicus" — "Shakespeare's first and bloodiest play" is the way she describes it — Oct. 26-27 and Nov. 2-4 at Mahan Theatre on campus. In her 11th year as Masqueraders director, Stanlake, who is also an associate professor, is known for her insightful and courageous choices of plays. When she came aboard in fall 2002, Stanlake immediately displayed vision by focusing on the role of female military leadership in George Bernard Shaw's "Saint Joan.

If the crime rate spikes in Howard County, blame Shakespeare. The Bard's most violent play, "Titus Andronicus," is being staged by the Laurel-based theater company Rude Mechanicals at the Howard County Center for the Arts in Ellicott City. This production follows close on the bloody heels of the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's outdoor staging of the same play at the Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park in 2010. Considering that "Titus Andronicus" is rarely staged anywhere, it's really unusual that local audiences have had two opportunities to be appalled by a play with such a high body count.

Cardinal Edwin F. O'Brien, speaking Sunday at a Mass of Thanksgiving in Baltimore after his recent elevation ceremony in Rome, alluded to political battles in Maryland as he said the church must always stand up for its values. Noting that Pope Benedict XVI exhorted religious leaders to defend the idea that marriage is a union between a man and a woman, he told about 1,000 parishioners: "We are doing our best, Holy Father, and we will not give up. " O'Brien was active in the push to keep the Maryland General Assembly from voting to legalize same-sex marriage.

Barr and other Baltimore-area Catholics traveled this week to Italy to witness the elevation ofArchbishop Edwin F. O'Briento the rank of cardinal. "It is so good to hear your voices," Barr told the children.

ROME -- President Bush paused yesterday between a summit session of the Atlantic alliance and economic talks in the Netherlands to renew his increasingly defensive battle with Congress.He charged that if it had been left up to the Democrats, the United States would be sitting "fat, dumb and happy with Saddam Hussein maybe in Saudi Arabia."The president firmly turned aside the Democrats' latest plan to stimulate the economy -- a tax credit for working Americans combined with higher taxes on the wealthy -- and argued that the nation was no longer in a recession.

While Baltimore rapper Los seems ready for his close-up because his style and delivery fit in well with the times, Rome Cee continues to carve out his gritty throwback lane. Rome's latest video, "Something Beyond," is the first clip from his forthcoming album/mixtape "The Grey Area. " "Something Beyond," directed by 87Conceptions, recalls the anti-flossy days of Wu-Tang Clan. It's a palette cleanser from the flashy MCs more concerned with snapback hats than tight rhymes.

It was with more than passing interest that I read Jacques Kelly 's account of the auction at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church. I grew up in Sacred Heart of Jesus parish in nearby Highlandtown and remember well the summer carnivals that Mr. Kelly described. I am sure that the closing of St. Michael's has been a painful experience for its parishoners. I recently finished reading Jason Berry's "Render unto Rome: The Secret Life of Money in the Catholic Church, " which discusses the issue of parish closures.
