Bonnie Raitt is scheduled to perform at the annual blues festival later this month.
This month's Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival, set to have Bonnie Raitt as a headliner, has set a ticket sales record for the festival's 13-year history. According to promoters, the previous sales record was held by the concert's premiere in 1998, with Little Feat headlining the event. In addition to Bonnie Raitt, this year's event includes Bad Influence, Mavis Staples, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue. "More than setting records, a lot of good will happen for four very special causes with the money raised," said the event's promoter, Don Hooker. The festival's ticket sales benefit a variety of charities, including End Hunger Calvert County, Camp Face, We Care an Friends, and Camp Fantastic. The festival will be held at Sandy Point State …

The county executive said the gallery is part of a "fresh start" for the county.
The artwork of students from across the county, including Windsor Farm Elementary students, is up for the public to browse at the county government office in downtown Annapolis. The gallery shows off the talents of students, who employ a variety of styles. One of the art pieces features birds depicted through yarn, a style inspired by Mexican Huichol yarn paintings. There is also art inspired by cave paintings and Japanese calligraphy. Some artwork goes beyond the canvas, including tiny hand-crafted figures, and traditional Mexican weavings. Anne Arundel County Executive Laura Neuman and Schools Superintendent Kevin Maxwell worked together in getting the gallery in front of the public's eyes. “This artwork will delight and also inspire us …

The blogger wrote a fond farewell to the feature that kept her coming back each day to post photos.
For more than a year, The Cape Blogger has contributed a photo each day of the sights around Cape St. Claire and the immediate area. But late last month, she finally decided to call it quits—on Photo 365. The blogger wrote a fond farewell to the feature that kept her coming back each day to post photos: And that's a wrap! I started this silly thing 365 days ago with a hazy College Parkway sunrise. I'm ending it a year later with a final Deep Creek sunset. I will continue to post pictures of the Cape when I have a good one to share, but I am releasing myself from the obligation of a daily entry. You will be spared the bad to mediocre forced shots, and I will be spared the 11:59 PM bolt out of bed that often came with the realization that I'…

A brief blurb about an upcoming Biblical play raised some eyebrows at the Arnold AACC campus.
Anne Arundel Community College commuters may have noticed a grabbing display on the electronic marquee this week—"Theatre at AACC,The Bible: A Laugh Riot!" The message was promoting a comedy being performed by the community college's theater group. According to AACC's website, the play touches on such questions as "Did Adam and Eve have navels?" and "Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston?" The community college's Facebook page asked readers if they were offended by the promotion, and received a mixed response. Some people said they laughed, others said it solidified their resolve not to patronize the play. Regardless of the intent, the brief message likely got the three-person play far more attention than most performances of its …
