If they want to win

 

Bay Weekly Primary Primer helped you get to know the candidates crowding this year’s race to the general election. Even more important, it helped you cast your vote. Or would-be vote, if you were locked out of primary voting because of your political independence or residence.

That’s what you’ve told me, by letter, phone, email and in person.

In the war against the vacuum, Lothian’s Juanky is declared top dog

The  war between pets and vacuum cleaners is long-standing and seemingly inexplicable. Maybe it’s the noise. Maybe it’s the aggressive suction coupled with a rolling machine. Maybe pets just don’t like clean carpets.

Eureka Vacuums, however, sought an armistice between their cleaners and your furry friends, inviting pet owners around the country to enter Fido’s Fight or Flight contest with videos of their pets reactions to the vacuum.

á la mode lingerie wins in European Flair

 

More pressurized than a mammogram. More daunting than a marathon. Able to break women shoppers in a single trip. That’s my definition of buying a bra.

So when my first assignment sent me to cover an award-winning brassiere shop, I felt like the new kid in first grade.

Dear Bay Weekly:

Congratulations on the Voting Edition [Primary Primer, Sept. 9]. Excellent. My wife and I thought your comments were right on, and we were very impressed.

Dear Bay Weekly:

We loved the pets issue of Bay Weekly [Aug. 26]. Having six cats and a German shepherd, we had to take turns reading the stories.

The Bay Gardener’s Maine coon cat sounds like a real character … sort of like pets and humans resembling one another. Three of my six are also Maine coons. You’ll see two of them in the enclosed photos of our cats.

–Marilyn Harmon, Shady Side

Dear Bay Weekly:

We are thrilled with the story on Friends of Felines [Scratching Out a Home in the Woods]. We can’t thank you enough. We have had calls from people wanting to know who does trap, neuter, release and maintain in Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties. Who knows? Maybe we’ve really got some momentum going. Thanks again.

–Carol Hall for Friends of Felines

Dear Bay Weekly:

Just wanted to let you know I was quite shocked and thrilled when I walked into Safeway to get my copy of Bay Weekly [No. 34: Aug. 26] and saw my cat Rascal on the front cover. My kids were thrilled, too!

Thanks so much!

–Charlotte Sanders, Chesapeake Beach

From start to finish, the Annapolis 10-miler pushed me way past my comfort zone

The humid air carries a buzz of excitement as 4,585 people packed in the early morning shade of Navy Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on August 29 stretch their limbs in anticipation of the impending race. This 10-mile run is the culmination of my weeks of training through another hot, humid Annapolis summer. It’s also the fulfillment of a goal I’ve had for years of watching the race from the sidelines — to be running on the other side of the fence.

With the autumnal equinox, that footwear comes to life

Labor Day has come and gone, but the celestial clock still reads summer. While our days are still longer than our nights, we have lost two hours 45 minutes of sunlight over the past three months. After this week, the hours of darkness each day will trump those of light.
