It’s a Wrap

Paul Skalny and I finished up our fifth installment of “And Then There’s That” this afternoon. Our guest this week was Gary Arthur, the Director of Howard County’s Department of Recreation and Parks.

Gary and his department have been in the news quite a bit lately with the opening of the Meadowbrook Athletic Center in Meadowbrook Park in Ellicott City, the debate over the Centennial Park Skate Spot and the planned tennis complex in Troy Hill Park. We thought it might be interesting to get his perspective on these and other issues on a county department that touches so much of our lives.

He was a great guest and it was fun to get back to Lakeside where we left off before the holidays.

Our next show will be on January 22nd and our guest will be Senator Allan Kittleman, the minority leader in the Maryland General Assembly.

Have not listened to it yet, but good on you for getting this together. Well done.

Good show! This episode and the last episode, no one said "and then there's that" after tangential points were raised. That's your trademark!

I am not Gary Arthur's biggest fan but I though the interview was good.

I disagree with your co-host that Doug Miller was critical of the purple lighting on the county HQ. I read Miller's blog and I don't think he cared one way or the other.

My bold prediction for 2010: an athlete and a politican will be involved in a sex scandal.

That's my rambling comment for the day.
