Arriving at her door, I heard strains of "O Tannenbaum" echo from the backyard. I followed the sound and found my friend with her foot on the spine of her Christmas tree. She cheerfully waved her chain saw."You have to cut the tree in half or the county won't recycle it," she explained.That's true, I thought as I gently extracted the saw from her hand. But they generally expect you to remove the decorations first.Safely back in her very stark house, I cautiously asked what had prompted her to remove all the holiday decorations by 4 p.m. Christmas day. After all, this is a woman who drives a minivan with a Rudolph head on the grill.

Homeowner associations, run by volunteers, depend on dedicated residents looking out for the best interests of their community. Many associations have very active members, who plan events that bring neighbors from their homes to meet other neighbors and contribute to worthy causes. Unfortunately, not every homeowner association has a core group of volunteers willing to regularly attend meetings and devote the time and energy needed to keep the group afloat. One such group in need of more volunteers is the Tollgate Action Group (TAG)

For those of us who lived through the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Agnes in 1972, the recent recollections in The Aegis and The Record brought back memories of those days from June 19 through June 24, 1972. For me, I was 20 years old and living over the Cash Loan Building in Havre de Grace, but my parents lived on South Main Street in Port Deposit and they owned Winchester's Bar and Restaurant at that time. On that particular Friday night, my husband, then-fiance Rick, was bartending for my dad at Winchester's right before the mandatory town-wide evacuation.

The Tollgate Action Group has had new life breathed into it, just when it looked like the organization was going to disband. Residents Sue and Morris Lohmeyer have stepped up as president and vice-president, and they welcome Kevin McCarthy as secretary and Russell Stewart as treasurer. At a Nov. 30 meeting, Councilman Ken Oliver of District 4 spoke to the crowd about the Solo Cup property, which will be home to a new Wegmans, in Owings Mills. The mall, which is slated for renovations, will keep anchor stores JC Penney and Macy's while making way for other free-standing stores.
