Women, Webcams, and: Free!


This years ARTSites are going up around the County and the Howard County School System got one.

Entitled “The Evening Blooms”, it is the work of Cathrin Hoskinson. Her work was also selected for ARTsites in 2014, when her piece “Sunbeam” was on display on the campus of Howard Community College near the Horowitz Center for the Performing Arts.

You may recall that I made a startling discovery when learning about last year’s sculptors. I’m looking forward to learning more about this year's selections and writing about them soon. 

Another interesting discovery. Columbia’s Lakefront has a live cam.

Welcome to Columbia, MD! EarthCam and @columbiaass have partnered to bring you live views from the banks of Lake Kittamaqundi. The lakefront is one of the most beautiful and beloved spaces in the Columbia community. Watch live: 3R14DLj

There’s some good news at River Hill High School. The RHHS Boosters Birthday Hawk is back, following a mysterious disappearance earlier this year.

Missing Hawk: February, 2023

According to the RHHS PTSA and Boosters organization, the Hawk is back and ready to return to birthday-wishing duty at the entrance to school grounds.

Did they need to commission an entirely new bird? Apparently not:

Thankfully, the bird bandits only left some graffiti on the back. We are happy the painting and work that our students put into the front of it was not damaged. A little paint on the back and it is ready to fly at RHHS! We are also hoping that the video surveillance it now has will keep this from happening again. 

Video surveillance - - wow. Now Columbia has a Lakefront cam and a Hawk cam.

One last interesting piece of information: the Maryland Transit Authority is offering free transit for a weekend in September. 

From Jerome Alexander Horne of the MTA: In celebration of "World Car Free Day," the Maryland Transit Administration is offering free rides on public transportation September 22-24! Local Bus, Light Rail, Metro, MARC, Commuter Bus and Mobility services will all be free.

Here’s more or World Car Free Day if you (like me) didn’t know it existed.

That’s all for now. Have a great Sunday with no visitation by the Sunday Scaries to trouble you.
