Joining the Arbor Day Foundation is an ideal way to get in the mood for spring planting. Anyone in Maryland who joins the foundation in February will receive 10 free Colorado blue spruce trees to plant when the weather turns warm.

The trees will be shipped postpaid at the right time for planting, between March 1 and May 31, with enclosed planting instructions.

HAGERSTOWN - Mort Kunstler tries to get into the minds of his subjects when he paints. "I'm into every person there," he said, gesturing to one of his paintings. "I put myself into each guy. What would he be doing? What would he be thinking?" While painting his newest release, "Maryland, My Maryland," he imagined himself at the scene. It was June 25, 1863, and Gen. Robert E.
