The Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks Deer Management Program schedule includes a bow and shotgun managed deer hunting session on Jan. 30 at the Alpha Ridge Park. This effort helps maintain a stable, balanced white-tailed deer population in our parks where deer browsing has been shown to reduce biodiversity. The managed hunt program gives specially screened and selected hunters day time access to area parks. The parks are closed for any other uses during the managed hunts. For information on this program, call the Department of Recreation and Parks at 410-313-1675.

The drama students at Triadelphia Ridge Elementary were met with such an overwhelming response during the winter production of “Aladdin,” that they can not wait to begin preparing for the late spring production of “The Little Mermaid.”
Happy New Year to all in our wonderful community of West Friendship. Before you know it, we will be spotting spring crocus. And, even more hopeful is the end to all the road and bridge construction and detours in our area. Happy 2020.
