The local Girl Scout Troops in the Fulton area are collecting not-expired and non-perishable food items for the "Spring Forward Food Drive." Items such as canned meats (ham, chicken, tuna), canned stews, peanut butter, mac & cheese, canned nuts and seeds, canned fruit and juices, canned soups, baking mixes and oatmeal, to name a few. The front office at Fulton Elementary School will be accepting donations until April 30. For more information, contact Sharre Kim at email@example.com.

Lifelong Highland resident would like to recognize the family now residing at 7825 Browns Bridge Road. The home is on the eastern corner of the intersection of Browns Bridge and Lime Kiln Roads. The fence row that bordered their property on the sides of the two roads was incredibly overgrown, making it a road hazard — it was nearly impossible to see up Browns Bridge Road when traveling northbound on Lime Kiln Road. They have cleaned out much of the overgrowth, making that corner much safer.
I would like to thank a young man, David Adele, a Highland resident who showed some kindness to me as I sat on the side of Route 216, waiting for a tow truck to come pick up me and my disabled motorcycle. David said that he noticed me as I was sitting on the curb as he was driving by. A few minutes passed and he came walking up with a cup of ice cold water. What a very pleasant surprise. He's attending Howard Community College and plans to go to university to finish up his undergraduate work for engineering. Naturally, being an alumnus of UMBC, I put in a plug for my alma mater. Thank you, David.
The annual community clean-up on the Howard County side of the Triadelphia Watershed area was a huge success- despite the clouds. George and Ann Mech reported there were seven volunteers (not including them) who showed up: Jacqueline Darmody, James Darmody, Marty Gittings, Steve Gittings, Lisa Heimlicher, Peter Heimlicher and Doug Smith. Thanks for your time and effort.
The Lime Kiln Middle School students of the week ending March 31 were: Karen Yhim, Chaeli Flotildes, Patrick Yeung, Maddie Wilson, Laucas Pryor, Shelby Reed, Isaac Shin, Amelia Reese and Chloe Garnish.
