Caplan's was a fixture of Historic Ellicott City for 26 years. But as owner John Caplan shared, “We decided to close our retail business there because the auction and appraisal business had grown to the point where we needed to focus solely on that.” Caplan's Auction & Appraisal Co. recently relocated to the Cotton Shed Building in historic Savage Mill. Auctions are held twice a week at that location -- making Caplan's one of the busiest auctioneers in the state. The free admission public auctions are held Sundays at 4:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Court-certified in the state of Maryland, Caplan's offers free verbal appraisals at any time and also offers walk-in and walk-through services.

CARSON, Wash. -- Go ahead. Make a monkey out of Sasquatch, say folks in this tiny town in the heart of Bigfoot country. That won't stop them from throwing their annual bash for the big galoot.Or from believing -- or at least wanting to believe -- that Sasquatch, the man-beast also known as Bigfoot, still exists somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. True believers haven't missed a beat since two of their flock broke ranks last month to debunk the most famous home movie since the Zapruder film.

GEORGIE JESSUP, singer-songwriter and champion of Native American heritage, was among the many who protested the devastation of woodlands south of Baltimore for the construction of the gigantic Arundel Mills outlet mall near BWI. One sunny morning last summer, we found Jessup camped on the road leading to the mall's ribbon-cutting, playing a guitar, singing a Lakota song and burning incense. It was Jessup's belief that Arundel Mills not only represented dumb growth in Smart Growth Maryland, but an invasion of ancient Native American sanctuaries.

"Where Bigfoot Walks: Crossing the Dark Divide," by Robert Michael Pyle. Photographs. New York: Houghton Mifflin. 338 pages. $21.95'We know that Bigfoot is one big metaphor," admits Robert Michael Pyle toward the end of this delicious inquiry into the Northwest's elusive Sasquatch, "a model for wildness, the unknown, tumid and hirsute desires with no names, the godforsaken exile. But metaphors can get up and walk." Under Pyle's ministrations, this one does just that. By the time he winds down his journeys and ruminations, we're on rather intimate terms with the "big galoot.

Americanisms: The Illustrated Book of Words Made in the USA, by Gary Luke and Susan Quinn. Sasquatch Books, $14.95. From "a-bomb" to "zillion" a charming, frothy little softcover volume. There is a pair of pages for most entries, with a straightforward definition, an attempt at tracing each neologism's origin, a pertinent, illustrative quotation and a photographic illustration -- which is often the most amusing part of the exercise. Babysitter, bingo, dropout, hippie, holdup, motel, RV and sex kitten begin to give you the idea.

Disclosure No. 1: Outdoors writers are an odd bunch. Doesn't matter if they're a hook-and-bullet traditionalist, a feather-and-fern newcomer or a foot-in-each-camp hybrid. Disclosure No. 2: I love to laugh, and few people make me laugh more than that ole hybrid, Ron Judd (he puts a "C." between Ron and Judd, as if he needs to differentiate himself from some other outdoors writer named Ron Judd). Judd writes about the outdoors for The Seattle Times. In his spare time, he also attends the Olympics - winter and summer - for the paper.
