Our weather has been somewhat dismal and we are all inside our houses trying to keep warm and dry. However, a Good Samaritan brightened up Dahl Road when he or she shoveled the snow of a very appreciative neighbor. Harriette Whitney investigated this good deed doer but to no avail. No one would fess up. So she gets the last word with a great big thank you to her Good Samaritan.

Bond Mill Elementary has a rich tradition of participation in the Prince George's County Public School's Write A Book competition. Students write, illustrate and bind their own storybook creations.

Go Bulldogs!

There was a sighting of two bald eagles on Brooklyn Bridge Road near the Supplee area. Has anyone else seen these beautiful birds of prey? I've also heard that there have been sightings of coyotes in the neighborhood once again. These are newsworthy stories that I need to hear about. If you have seen any critters in West Laurel that are not normally native to this area, inquiring minds want to know. Send me an email.

I am a Redskins fan. But this weekend, just for Super Bowl XLVII, I am wearing purple and I am a Baltimore Ravens fan. Go Ravens!
