A state senator wants a new state bird; one man's technolgical fortress is his castle; and the Senate president feels snubbed by Obama.
It's not a statue in front of the office building that bares his name but Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller did receive a bust of himself this week courtesy of the Regional Manufacturing Institute. Sen. Kathy Klausmeier, a Perry Hall Democrat, gave a sneak preview of the small, light-weight bust of Miller moments before presenting it to the Senate's top dog. "You can't have too much Mike Miller," Klausmeier said. The technology is similar to what was used in a scene of Jurassic Park 3 where a copy of a velociraptor's larynx was recreated. The institute offered legislators in Annapolis the opportunity to have themselves scanned into a computer and get busts of themselves. Miller seemed impressed with the petite bust but joked that it …

Odenton resident Alan Simpson and his son, Bradley, were in New Orleans as the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII over the 49ers.
Sunday was a great day for Alan Simpson and his son, Bradley. The Odenton residents were in New Orleans for about 16 hours, but they made a visit to Bourboun Street, munched on some beignets at Café Du Monde and then watched the Baltimore Ravens edge the San Francisco 49ers to win the Super Bowl. The father and son paid more than $9,000 to Prime Sports for a chartered flight and tickets to the game; it was a special treat from Alan to Bradley, an honor roll student and junior at Arundel High. The game itself was a wild one, as the Ravens jumped out to an early lead that quieted 49ers fans in the Simpsons' section. "We were pretty sure we were going to win the game. We had 49ers fans around us and they had pretty much given up,” Alan …
