Jack Scarbath has gone from carving up opposing defenses with his quarterback skills to carving fine wood pieces into exquisite wildfowl creations. A runner-up for college football's coveted Heisman Trophy in 1952, Scarbath has earned different kinds of accolades with his carving: prizes at carving competitions, a steady stream of commission work, and invitations to exhibit at festivals. On a recent afternoon at his studio in Rising Sun, Scarbath deftly held a carving tool and worked with precise movements.

Monet is ComingEditor: On behalf of the Baltimore Museum of Art, I'd like to thank the thousands of Baltimoreans who have already called to express excitement about the museum's upcoming exhibition of Monet. We have anticipated that a quarter of a million people will come through the BMA doors when the exhibition is here from Oct. 13 of this year through Jan. 19, 1992. If our calls are any indication, our estimations are right on target.An exhibition of this magnitude requires extraordinary measures accommodate and ensure the most comfortable viewing experience for our visitors.

An obscure, grasslike plant with a 19-letter name has forced the clearing of more than an acre of trees and added $70,000 to the cost of a taxpayer-supported wildlife museum on the Eastern Shore.Salisbury's $5.4 million Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art is expected to open four months late and about 80 feet from its original location because a rare aquatic plant was discovered growing in the pond over which part of the museum was to be built.Eleocharis Robbinsii, also known as Robbin's Spikerus, has been listed since 1987 among the 618 species of plants and animals officially protected under Maryland law.The discovery of Robbin's Spikerus in Schumaker Pond caught the attention of officials at the Department of Natural Resources, who persuaded the museum's foundation to move the site to dry land.

Each activity is intended to educate the public on how to help preserve the bay, while having fun at the same time.Sponsors like the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., Giant Foods, ++ Anheuser-Busch, the Chesapeake Bay Trust and the Governor's Chesapeake Bay Communications Office helped make the 32 events possible.

Last year the Wildlife Division of the Department of Natural Resources funded a telephone survey of 1,002 Maryland residents to determine public support, participation and attitudes toward wildlife viewing in the state.Responsive Management, the Virginia firm that also conducted a survey last year on an early muzzleloader hunting season for deer in Maryland, found that almost 75 percent of those interviewed indicated they might have an interest in observing wildlife.In response to the results of the survey and a trend documented over the past 20 years by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Wildlife Division has begun a Watchable Wildlife program to increase viewing and photographic opportunities.

Maryland Citizens for the Arts will hold a salute to Gov. William Donald Schaefer and leaders of the General Assembly May 20 at Center Stage in acknowledgment of their support of state arts funding.Last year, the General Assembly approved a $2.4 million increase in funding for the Maryland State Arts Council. This year, despite the state's financial woes, the governor cut just $125,000 in program funds from the arts council's $7.4 million budget and the House and Senate cut only an additional $200,000 from that.
