Fred Rasmussen wrote a terrific article about Sunday's inaugural Art Outside at Druid Hill Park ("Arts patron revives Druid Hill outdoor festival," May 17). The event was outstanding, bringing the city back together in a beautiful setting. Many communities came together to support this wonderful day. Just like the art show of the '60s, Art Outside was festive, entertaining, relaxing and social. People got to enjoy special artists work in various medium - music, magic, painting, jewelry, clay, etc. It was a wonderful and special event that I hope will continue.

Dan Rodricks ' Verizon experience sounds very familiar to me ("Last call for Verizon service," Feb. 22). My experience with Verizon has been worse than terrible. "No telephone or Internet service? We'll schedule a technician to look into the problem in the next 10 to 14 days. Thanks for calling Verizon and have a wonderful day. " The problem was Verizon's, not in my house. Isn't Verizon a public utility? Isn't there some Public Service Commission oversight here? Maybe Dan could look into why the PSC allows this to happen.

SAVAGE FEST has come and gone and all the weary elves have retired to their abodes, there to relive the past glory of a beautiful day and dream of bigger events to come.It was a wonderful day, with a parade and pony rides, a dunking booth, door prizes and two moon bounces.For a wonderful day, it got off to a bad start.As in most years, Howard County Council member Charles Feaga lent the fair the use of two dozen bales of hay.These bales make wonderfully rustic and soft seating for tired fair-goers.

On a glorious Friday in August, I was treated to a ride on the restored train and steam locomotive on the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad. The 1916 steam locomotive makes an impressive first appearance, rounding the bend at the Cumberland station, chugging and belching smoke and steam. It's easy to see how the locomotive earned the nickname "Mountain Thunder." The whistle screeches; the ground rumbles, and the littlest passengers squeal with delight at the approaching giant. Conductor Richard Markle, a railroad veteran for 60 years, greets passengers with his signature "All aboard!"

Though the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is closed for the winter, the park's animals are still able to get out and enjoy the weather. A mild January, one of the warmest on record, has been a plus for many of the zoo's creatures. The Maryland Zoo was established in 1876 and is the country's third-oldest. The grounds cover about 180 acres in Druid Hill Park and are home to nearly 2,000 animals and 200 species. The park will reopen March 4.

The plastic Santas were on display behind the "DECK THE HALLS SALE" sign outside Frank's Nursery & Crafts in Severna Park, and from where they stood one could see the bank thermometer next door: 82 degrees at 1:35 p.m. As the woman in the post office said, "Crazy weather."Folks were talking about it yesterday in the post office and on the street. People were leaving work early because they could hear their golf clubs beckoning.All because the 1973 record temperatures of 77 degrees at Baltimore-Washington Airport, 80 degrees downtown were shattered yesterday by noon: 79 at BWI, 82 downtown.

PARIS - Seeking to put months of trans-Atlantic acrimony behind it, the United Nations Security Council voted overwhelmingly yesterday to lift sanctions against Iraq and grant the United States and Britain broad powers to rule the devastated nation until a new Iraqi government can take over. Despite misgivings expressed by several member states, the Security Council voted 14-0 to release the Iraqi people from the burden of economic sanctions originally imposed to punish Saddam Hussein, the deposed Iraqi strongman, for invading Kuwait in 1990.
