Preventing crime

Girl Scout Troop 988 and Boy Scout Troop 613 have provided a community service for the Village of Owen Brown with long-reaching benefits for everyone.

They bagged and delivered the 1997 "Time To Prevent Crime" calendars to 3,500 households in the village.

The calendars are a co-operative venture, too. Owen Brown Community Association was awarded a community grant from the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention by executive director Michael Sarbanes, who considers the grants "one of the most important investments that the state of Maryland can make in its neighborhoods."

Residents who did not receive a calendar may obtain one at the Owen Brown Community Center, 6800 Cradlerock Way during regular office hours, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays.

Exploring the seas

The fact that a first-person report elicits more interest from students and promotes more understanding, was demonstrated recently when David Jourdan, president of Columbia's Meridian Sciences Inc., visited the Phelps Luck Elementary fifth-graders.

The children were studying oceanography, and Jourdan visited the class to show slides of the technology his company uses to search and explore ocean depths.

One of the company's projects was a successful search for a I-52 Japanese submarine, sunk during World War II and reported to have a cargo of gold.

The students followed the visit with a field trip to the company, where oceanographic engineer Tom Dettweiller, director of the Ocean Engineering and Operations Division, talked about his experiences with Meridian Sciences, and in the Navy and Coast Guard.

Local stars

East Columbians Susan and David Hobby are authors of "Columbia: A Celebration," a photographic essay of Columbia published by Perry Publishing, former owner of Owen Brown's Cover to Cover Bookstore.

The Hobbys will be at Borders Books & Music in Snowden Square at 7: 30 p.m. tomorrow.

Owen Brown resident and elementary school teacher Phyllis Cercone will discuss her story about a child in a biracial home, "Amanda's Secret Wish," at 11 a.m. Saturday.
