The guard recently earned first place in a competition in Pennsylvania and will be heading to Disney World later this month.
The Arundel Indoor Color Guard is in the middle of its most successful—and fun—season in recent memory. Powered by a new energetic routine and several veteran members, the guard recently earned top honors at a competition in Pennsylvania and is prepping for a trip to Disney World later this month. "This year has been so much fun," said senior Natasha Salzinger, an Arundel High senior from Crofton, who has been with the guard for six years. "The routine this year is probably my favorite of all time." This year's routine is based on theme of "Be Yourself." It opens with majestic movements set to classical music, then finishes on an energetic tone behind the song Barbie Girl, by Aqua. The guard features 15 members, all of whom also took …

Company employees took some time out to perform the latest dance craze.
By now you've probably seen scores of videos featuring groups of people performing the "Harlem Shake" dance. The folks over at M-Edge in Odenton have gotten in on the action, recording a 50-second video featuring....well, there's a lot to look at here. There's a woman getting down in a Spider-Man mask and pink shawl. There are people walking around wearing bird heads. There's a snowman. There's a guy spinning a rainbow umbrella. I have no idea what or who the woman in the bottom left corner is supposed to be. Anyway, it's a funny video, and would appear to underscore M-Edge's reputation as one of the area's best places to work. Don't forget that this is place that has fun throwing expensive iPhones onto asphalt parking lots.

Rebecca Feibel has been nominated as best supporting actress for her portrayal of "Aunt Eller" in a recent performance at the Bowie Playhouse.
An Odenton resident and veteran of the county theatre scene has been nominated as best actress for her performance in a recent production of Oklahoma! Rebecca Feibel's portrayal of "Aunt Eller" during performances at Bowie Playhouse in November earned recognition from the Maryland Theatre Guide, which nominated her as "Best Supporting Actress" for its annual Readers Choice awards.

In playing Aunt Eller, Feibel said she tried to capture the humor and "salt-of-the-earth" nature of the woman, a community leader who plays a central role in the lives of the other characters. But she was …

Honor roll students gathered for a special assembly on a day when the school announced that boys and girls in every grade level averaged a 3.0 grade point average or higher.
Arundel High School students and staff Friday celebrated an uptick in academic performance, after they learned of some of the highest quarterly grade point averages in recent history. Honor roll students gathered for a special morning assembly featuring music and a guest speaker, as Principal Sharon Stratton revealed a school-wide grade point average of 3.01 for the first quarter.
