Bartlett Pear Inn is the name of Alice and Jordan Lloyd's boutique inn on Harrison Street in Easton. It's also the name of their wonderful-in-every-way restaurant on the inn's first floor. It is a superb restaurant. The atmosphere is serene and relaxing, the service achieves a rare balance of proficiency and warmth, and the food is consistently satisfying. There are moments of culinary drama, mostly at the beginning, when your senses need stimulation, and at the end, when you want a finale to whistle about on the sidewalk.

MILWAUKEE -- Olympic speed skater Kristen Talbot's sprint for glory is not as important as her brother's race for life.It's no contest."No, no, it wasn't a tough decision," Talbot said. "I've said it over and over again. To me, his life is much more important than skating in the Olympics."Talbot, 23, was competing in the U.S. Long Track Speedskating Team Trials this weekend, barely earning a third berth on the Olympic team and a right to compete in the 500-meter sprint race at the Winter Games in Lillehammer, Norway, next month.

We commend President Barack Obama for designating the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument ("A monument to Md. abolitionist," March 26). Just days after the centennial of her death, Harriet Tubman is finally receiving the national recognition she deserves as a heroic conductor on the Underground Railroad and an early leader for women's rights. The National Monument will include locations in Caroline, Dorchester, and Talbot counties, complimenting the Tubman State Park which broke ground for the construction of a world-class visitor's center on March 9. The landscapes of Ms. Tubman's birthplace and her early life on the Eastern Shore are a vital part of the Chesapeake's story that will now be conserved and interpreted for current and future generations, providing a major draw for travelers and economic development.

Tyler Hughes always liked to go fast. At age 3, he was powering a little go-kart around an asphalt track in a neighbor's backyard on the Eastern Shore. At 5 years old, he was whipping quarter-midget racecars around dirt tracks in Maryland and Delaware. At age 10, he was racing 600cc modified lite dwarf cars around Seaford, Del., picking up seven wins as the youngest rookie driver. Now, the 16-year-old from Cordova in Talbot County has been named NASCAR's 2012 Virginia Rookie of the Year in the Whelen All-American Series, a points championship for local NASCAR-sanctioned racetracks.

Federal wildlife officials are offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the conviction of the person who killed a pair of bald eagles in Talbot County last Monday. The carcasses were found by a resident near the intersection of Kitty's Corner and State Road 328, just south of Tuckahoe Creek. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials believe the eagles were the victims of secondary poisoning after feeding on a dead fox. Bald eagles are no longer listed under the Endangered Species Act, but they are federally protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. Maximum fines under these acts are $100,000 and $15,000 respectively, with possible imprisonment up to one year.
