Sidewalks transformed into canvases with all matter of chalk, water and dirt. Entire childhoods washed away with the falling of rain or a finger pushed into the end of the garden hose. (There's God's second-favorite illusion -- a rainbow in the spray -- there and gone in a second.) My memories are all of suns rising and falling. That orange glow dropping behind the townhouses, leaving us with a purple sky over our heads. I miss you, she says. You too? I laugh. I miss myself dreadfully.

No one was injured Saturday night when a small electrical fire occurred in a mobile home in the 400 block of Pepper Tree Road, off Grade Road, according to emergency service officials. The renters had the power turned off and put the fire out using a garden hose before firefighters arrived, said Lt. Justin Delmotte with Bedington Volunteer Fire Department. The fire was in a light fixture in the dining room ceiling, Delmotte said. Neighbors saw smoke and called 911, he said. Firefighters disconnected power to the home, which will not be habitable again until the power is turned back on, Delmotte said.

Spend a sunny summer weekend snooping around your house. Look for paint that is peeling and cracks that need sealing. What other simple jobs could you do that will reduce or eliminate costly repairs later? By keeping up on small maintenance jobs you can save money on larger repairs, protect your home equity and possibly increase the resale value of your home.  Start at the top with the roof. Check for winter damage. Look for missing or damaged shingles and arrange for them to be replaced.

It's here. It's here. It's finally here. Spring, glorious spring, has arrived and it's time to wake up our gardens. Start with some spring cleaning. Tidy up your flower gardens by removing stalks not cut back in the fall. Rake off clumps of leaves. And feed the soil in all of your beds with an inch or so of compost.    This is a perfect time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials. Cooler spring weather gives them a chance to grow good roots before the heat hits. How deep should your planting hole be?

cailinm@herald-mail.com FUNKSTOWN - Since joining Funkstown's planning commission in 1982, Sonja Feiser has had a hand in making decisions for the town. "I don't like to sit back and see what's happening. I like to get in there and find out," Feiser said. Although the commission has not had success in getting a bypass built, Feiser said she is pleased that the town did not overdevelop as they feared it might. "We wrote up a lot of plans for this area, like not to let big business take over our small community," Feiser said.
