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 …

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman was reportedly locked out of the Super Bowl during the power outage at the Superdome.
Howard County Executive Ken Ulman went down to New Orleans to watch the Baltimore Ravens play in the Super Bowl along with his brother Doug Ulman and his father Lou. Ulman's brother Doug, the CEO of Livestrong, had acquired the tickets, according to Sam O'Neil, an Ulman administration official. But when the lights went out just after the start of the third quarter, it was Ulman who was out in the dark—he was locked out of the building, according to an Explore Howard report. Ulman told Explore Howard he had gone outside to call his wife, when the power went out, and the stadium went into lockdown. "I turned around, the building was dark and they locked the doors," Ulman told the paper. "It was bizarre." Once power was restored, Ulman was …

Super Bowl XLVII pits the 49ers' Jim Harbaugh against the Ravens' John Harbaugh. Patch shares the story of the Harbaugh family leading into Super Bowl Sunday.
They'll take an objective approach Sunday. Jackie Harbaugh and her daughter, Joani, vow to wear neutral clothes. Jack Harbaugh said he'll take off his coach's hat and just play the role of Dad. When it comes to Super Bowl coaches John and Jim Harbaugh, their family doesn't play favorites. But that didn't stop John from interrupting a nationwide media conference call last week to double-check. "Is it true that both of you like Jim better than John?," asked a Baltimore caller named John. Joani knew immediately that the voice on the other end was her brother. But there was a dramatic pause from Momma Harbaugh. "Is that John?," Jackie finally asked. "Is that John Harbaugh?" Dad followed up, amid laughter. "Mom was ready to come right through …
