She bypasses the traditional soldering technique and uses simple wire to bind the glass to a metal frame. The method frees her to create more creative, elaborate displays than possible using traditional means, she said. “With this, there aren’t any weight limitations,” Curtis said. “I can suspend one piece off of another.” Why go solder-free? Curtis said she's something of an environmental buff, and doesn't like to use unneeded chemicals. After creating mobiles like these for over a decade, she’s become something of a master craftsman. Her …

Despite the closing of local businesses, it's not all gloom and doom for Arnold, says a local business leader.
This is Part Two in a two-part series focusing on the business atmosphere in Arnold following the closing of five businesses over the last four months (Part 1: After 5 Closings in Arnold, Councilman Says 'Sky Not Falling Yet') A county business leader said that despite Arnold's recent troubles, the business corridor it's a part of is in solid shape. But that bright outlook hasn't stopped several business owners from having to make the tough decision to close up shop. Bob Burdon, president of the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce, said the group actively monitors business activity in the region and concluded the recent closings were not a part of a downward economic trend in the area. Rather, Burdon said the closings …

Former business owners comment on the state of Arnold's economy and the future for shopping locally.
This is part one of a two-part series on the atmosphere in the Arnold business community following a series of closings this year. Broadneck's county councilman said the closing of five businesses in four months is an indication that the local economy has an uphill battle to recovery. Since December, five businesses have closed in Arnold—many of them longtime shops with a history. Some have been replaced by newer businesses, but most haven't. Patch asked Anne Arundel County Councilman Dick Ladd, who oversees the Broadneck region on the council, what his thoughts were about this trend. "I don't think the sky is falling, but I do think there is more gloom to come in the economy before we see an uptick," Ladd said. "I think people are just …
