Annapolis mom Jennifer Asquith-Scott says she scrambles every summer to keep her two girls, Daphni, 10, and Sydney, 13, entertained.

In the past, they've kept busy going to local pools and finding other activities, which she can swing because she works from home. But the older they get, the harder it is keep her middle schoolers occupied all summer.

"You really don't want them home alone with their friends, because you don't know what they are up to," Asquith-Scott says.

Local tweens form band and rock the 9:30 Club

Fast As LighteningWAbout a year ago, five Anne Arundel County tweens formed a rock band that has since taken off — performing all over the metro area and opening for Soul Asylum at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C.

Jackson Anderson, 11, of Arnold came up with the idea for the band named "Fast as Lightning." The long-haired sixth-grader started playing guitar at age 7 and has been performing onstage with The School of Rock Annapolis since he was 9.
