1997 Georges Duboeuf Moulin-a-Vent, 75th Anniversary ($12). This bottling marks the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Moulin-a-Vent growing region, perhaps the finest patch of ground in Beaujolais. Moulin-a-Vent typically produces the most concentrated, sturdy and long-lived wines of Beaujolais (though they don't improve that much with age). This is a worthy example from Duboeuf, the "king of Beaujolais" and a winemaker who understands that fruit is everything in wine.

Eighty years ago, much of the Mid-Atlantic was recovering from the Great Hurricane of 1933, which struck Aug. 23, 1933. The storm caused widespread destruction and killed 13 people in Maryland, and the scars are visible today. One of the biggest is the Ocean City inlet, which was carved by the storm in 36 hours, connecting the ocean and Sinepuxent Bay. The inlet was made permanent by the Army Corps of Engineers through dredging and the construction of stone jetties on both sides.

BALTIMORE -- What's Hebrew for "oops"?The celebration of the 75th anniversary of Druid Hill's Shaarei Tfiloh synagogue was supposed to include the opening of a time capsule yesterday, but hours of drilling this weekend turned up no capsule inside the 500-pound granite cornerstone. It was just granite.But in 25 years, come on back. Rabbi David E. Herman assured a crowd celebrating the anniversary at a Pikesville banquet hall that a time capsule will be inside that block at the synagogue's centennial.

Washington - As the nation marks the 75th anniversary of women's right to vote, the Capitol's only monument to the suffrage movement will stay where it has been for 74 years: behind a pillar, a floor beneath the building's most famous gallery. Women's groups tried again this year to have the statue of Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton moved upstairs from the crypt, a ground floor display area, to the Rotunda, the Capitol's largest room.The Rotunda now features only statues of men, including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and Roger Williams, founder of Rhode Island.
