The retirement of Elwood Dehaven after 32 years of service to the Harford County Sheriff's Office leaves a vacancy that Sheriff L. Jesse Bane says he is in no hurry to fill, that of warden for the county jail. Warden is one of those iconic posts in American lore. Plenty of images from Hollywood central casting come to mind when the title is raised, but the reality of such jobs is generally far from the movie images we sometimes have of them. Technically speaking, the sheriff's plan is to put a deputy with the rank of major, Maj. Michael Capasso, in charge of the Harford County Detention Center.

Lynn Zwerling speaks of knitting the way others talk about yoga or long distance running or even particularly potent cocktails. It's life-changing, she'll say. Mind-altering. Zen. The Columbia retiree doesn't care if she's making a hat, a sweater or a scarf. It's just the way she loses herself in the lightly clicking needles, plush wool and repetitive motion. Zwerling, who's 67, took up knitting after retiring from selling cars, quickly becoming an evangelist, more enthusiastic than skilled.

The Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor takes place only near the end of "From Here to Eternity" (1953). But it's an ideal selection for the Maryland Historical Society's series, "Patriotic Hollywood: World War II in Film." Stephen Ambrose once wrote, "What held [American GIs] together was not country and flag, but unit cohesion." "From Here to Eternity" is about the pain of building that unit cohesion and the rewards it gives to all who join it, be they selfless, selfish or damaged.
