Several times a day, Monetta Dennis leaves her tiny home in Shady Side and walks down the road to her father's house. There, she fills a bucket with water from his faucet for drinking and cooking. Dennis' little house has no running water. There's an outhouse in the back. But the dilapidated home has been in her family of farmers and watermen for more than 100 years, and though she had little money to fix it up, it earned her loyalty. Her uncle lived there, and then her mom. When her mother died six years ago, the lifelong Shady Side resident and caretaker for the elderly moved there with her 16-year-old twin sons.

Anne Arundel County officially opened a new water access point Wednesday in Shady Side, an offshoot of a citizen-led effort to increase public access to bodies of water. More than 70 residents and county officials attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Shady Side Park, and officials said attendees brought more than 30 kayaks to give the new facility a test drive. The access point - on Parish Creek, which feeds into the West and Rhode rivers - offers enthusiasts a place to put in their kayaks, canoes, inner tubes and paddleboards.

When you start telling your unconscious you're willing to listen, it might send you information to shake you out of your shoes," he said.

The Civil War experience has been preserved over the past 150 years through a variety of media: books, newspaper accounts, films, drawings, paintings, diaries, artifacts and ... quilts. The quilting form will be discussed and displayed Sunday at the Captain Avery Museum in Shady Side, as Mavis Slawson, a textile historian and docent at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, in Frederick, gives a presentation Sept. 8 on "Civil War Soldiers and Their Quilts. " Slawson said she hoped to convey that quilts provided more than just physical comfort to soldiers in the Civil War - they were also a source of emotional and spiritual solace for men who were a long way from home and in harm's way. "Many of these quilts had special meaning to the soldiers in the field or in the hospitals," said Slawson, a Columbia resident who is not only well-versed in the history of Civil War quilts but is an accomplished quilter herself.

Carmelia Hicks' favorite grade-school teacher, Julia T. Smith, was a kindly human being, but she kept a thick paddle in her desk drawer and was never afraid to use it. The way Hicks remembers it, Miss Smith had plenty of backup. "If you acted up, she sent you to the principal's office. Miss [Alice] Battle, the principal, had an even thicker paddle. Then they'd call your parents, and when you got home, you'd get another beating," Hicks says of the mid-1960s, when she was a student at the Lula G. Scott Elementary School in Shady Side.
