Barry III, spokesman for a coalition of environmental and urban revitalization groups.

Thanks again for sharing the memories of our dad The children of James Riley McCrumb wanted to thank all the friends and family who attended the Celebration of Life service on Sept. 27. It was warming to see how many lives our father touched. It wasn't always easy being one of 1,000 kids vs. one of 3, yet knowing that we have so many brothers and sisters is comforting. Our father was a simple man who found his calling early. He lived and breathed Mount Hebron High School. He led by example.

Seated in several rows of the Sunday school room at Westminster United Methodist Church, the chorus fills the room with sweet harmony. To the casual listener, it's hard to imagine this is only the group's weekly rehearsal, and not one of their many area performances. Under the exacting direction of Richard Blanchard - a retired professional tenor soloist whose well-trained ear knows how to coax the right sounds out of the singers - the choir is eager to please. Called the Senior Singers, the ecumenical choir was created in February 2005 with about six singers.

As Annapolis nears its tricentennial in 2008, city leaders have begun to plan a celebration that will reflect the still-striking grande dame's entire history. Not everything in the past 300 years has been as pretty as the Chesapeake Bay or the late-18th-century architecture for which Annapolis is noted. Organizers say they reject the idea of a self-congratulatory stroll through the past, and promise that the historical chapters of slavery and segregation will not be overlooked. Yet the yearlong celebration should be inspirational for the city's future, bring all components of the community together and tap into its cultural resources, as Mayor Ellen O. Moyer and others see it. "This won't be a bunch of rich white guys patting each other on the back," said Charles W. Weikel, the mayor's newly appointed chairman of the Annapolis 300th Birthday Celebration steering committee.
