The often-delayed plan to renovate the county government complex will get off the ground in earnest now that officials have found a temporary home for about 400 county employees while the project commences. With a $20 million renovation of the 1976 George Howard Building in Ellicott City now imminent, county officials have signed a $1.6 million lease on a 106,000-square-foot, two-story building at 8930 Stanford Blvd. in east Columbia, behind the Apple Ford auto dealership. Plans are to use the long weekend ending Oct. 13 - the Columbus Day holiday - to empty the county government building, which is to be redesigned, said James M. Irvin, the county public works director.

To keep its animals safe, the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS) moved all of its dogs and cats to a temporary home at 1st Mariner Arena on Monday morning. Because the shelter lies in a flood-prone part of South Baltimore, BARCS convened a team of volunteers for the emergency evacuation. In a matter of hours, they safely moved more than 100 cats and nearly that many dogs. The animals will ride out the storm at the arena.

City officials scrambled yesterday to find a temporary home for more than 50 horses residing in a crumbling West Baltimore stable while trying to assure the vendors known as "Arabbers" that the tradition of selling produce on city streets would endure. But some Arabbers and their supporters questioned the city officials' promises and warned that the practice of horse-drawn produce wagons, which dates back to the 19th century, is on the verge of being wiped out.

Five-year-old Miriam heard them first. But her mother, Mary Talalay, didn't quite believe there were birds living in their suburban chimney. Then she heard them, too. The baby chimney swifts were chirping - and loudly - for food. Each summer, Baltimore becomes a way station for thousands of the small, brownish-black birds, on their long migration between North and South America. They nest and roost inside local brick and stone chimneys, their preferred summer homestead. Officials for the state Department of Natural Resources say homeowners sometimes mistake them for bats.

Thanksgiving at the Light House Shelter in Annapolis will be simple and plain for those living there, without a home to call their own. But for some residents, the gathering will not be dim in hope or spirit. "Each one of us has our own stories," said Beverly Stone, a middle-age mother estranged from her family and recovering from a heart attack. "They try to make you as happy as you can be and it gives you a sense of pride." For the 15 men, five women and the handful of families who temporarily reside at the 206 West St. shelter and a few nearby apartments and houses, the turkey dinner served tomorrow will be a chance to give thanks for blessings that might not meet the eye. Some are just glad to be alive.

It was like one of those dramatic turning points in an opera when the audience is treated to thunderclaps, ominous music and exaggerated acting. Baltimore Opera Company Director Michael Harrison was sure the soon-to-be-rebuilt Hippodrome Theater would be his group's temporary home for part of 2004 - until he got a jarring phone call in the spring. The caller said work crews were pouring concrete that very minute for the orchestra pit, and it would be far too small for most operas, with just the 25 or so seats needed for Broadway musicals.

The high-backed wooden chairs in the Taneytown council chamber will be packed and moved after tonight's meeting, as the city begins a renovation of the century-old building. Officials and employees will set up a temporary City Hall for the rest of the year about a block and a half away, in the new Police Department office that opened in December. "Everybody's packing up," city manager Gary W. Hardman said last week, as he and the five other employees looked for file cabinets, folders and even pens that city crews had carted away ahead of schedule.
