If you're driving along Route 144 in Howard County, passing through West Friendship, and get a yearning for a McDonald's Big Mac, fries and a shake, just keep driving. Because, try as you might to find a McDonald's in West Friendship, you'll come up empty-handed. And that just may be one of the reasons why residents in this part of Howard County like to call West Friendship home. For, if a McDonald's isn't present - as Mary Jo Neil, a resident for five years, can attest to - neither is the commercial clutter that comes with creeping development and sprawl.

When Russell Shipley started school in 1925, he never knew he'd watch his sister, daughters and grandchildren follow in his footsteps at Howard County's oldest school - West Friendship Elementary. He didn't know that he'd drive a bus to and from the school after he graduated, bringing his neighbors' children to West Friendship's doors. And he didn't know that at age 88, he'd be back at the school as a guest of honor at the school's 75th birthday, with current and past West Friendship students - including his family members - crowding around to shake his hand.

John D. Danko stops in mid-conversation to note the sound ringing through the house. The small brass bell chimes from behind the face of the grandfather clock in the foyer, perhaps the same sound people would have heard in their homes while waiting for word from the battlegrounds of the War of 1812. "Back in those days, this is what they heard," says Danko, after the clock has chimed nine times on the hour. Then there's only the tick-tick-tick of the seconds as two weights and a pendulum wrought in cast iron keep the time using technology that dates to the days of the Battle of North Point and Fort McHenry's defense of Baltimore harbor.

The Simulated Congressional Hearing has become a rite of passage for many area fifth-graders, including those at West Friendship Elementary School. Throughout the school year, the students learn about the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and other aspects of American government. Their social studies lessons culminate in the hearing, an authentic, interactive experience through which they demonstrate their understanding of constitutional principles. At West Friendship Elementary, every fifth-grade classroom chooses a patriotic team name (this year: justice, liberty and John F. Kennedy)

A fair comes to vivid life at night. Sure, there's plenty to do during the day at the Howard County Fair, running through Satuday at the fairgrounds in West Friendship. There are livestock shows, racing pigs, chain saw carving contests and a couple dozen elected and would-be elected officials prowling about, almost impossible to avoid, looking to shake your hand and solicit your vote. Come dusk, however, the fair really takes off. Young parents bring their kids for an adventurous night out, teens compete with each other to see who can ride the Cliff Hanger the most times and barkers will say just about anything to get you to try that game of skill and chance you just know you'll never win. Here are a half-dozen experiences not to be missed during your night at the fair.
