The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services has suspended its diversion programs for troubled youths, a decision that officials said is not related to a recent portrayal on the A&E network show "Beyond Scared Straight. " The programs, which typically send youths into prisons with hopes of deterring them from a life of crime by having them interact with inmates, were stopped last week, said Rick Binetti, the department's director of communications. In a Jan. 20 episode of the A&E show, set at the state's Jessup facility, an inmate threw a teenager into a bathroom to show what happens behind bars.

A bankruptcy court approved the sale of two Superfresh stores in the Baltimore area but delayed a decision on the fate of several others. The owner of the Superfresh grocery chain, which is selling the stores to raise money to pay off debt, said earlier this month that it had found buyers for 12 of 25 stores it was trying to unload. The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. Inc., based in Montvale, N.J., plans to 13 close stores that have no interested buyers next month. A court on Tuesday approved the sale of the Ellicott City store to SuperValu, which will turn the store into a Shoppers Food & Pharmacy.

It's hard to believe there may be a day soon when there's no Superfresh in Maryland. I grew up with its corporate parent, the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co. The A&P seemed to be everywhere, even the little ones with wooden floors and the mechanical coffee grinders adjacent to the Cross Street and Broadway markets. I can see the Art Deco-style bags for the Eight O'Clock, Red Circle and Bokar coffees that were ground as you waited. We had Jane Parker iced Spanish bar cake, Iona canned goods and Ann Page pineapple preserves.

As a young woman, she worked at a downtown Oriole Cafeteria and was a bookkeeper for the A&P supermarket chain. There she met her future husband, Alfred "Al" Redmer.

The natural accompaniment to cake is, of course, ice cream — which may be why Duff Goldman is making it his next business venture. The "extreme baker" who became a national fixture with his "Ace of Cakes" television show on the Food Network has sealed a deal with Blue Bunny for his own ice cream line. The cake-inspired flavors are set to hit freezer cases this month and will be sold in the Baltimore area at stores including SuperFresh, ShopRite, Food Lion and Walmart. The ice cream line is the latest venture by Goldman.

After the Orioles finally got back into the win column Sunday with an 8-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics, backed by another solid start from rookie Brian Matusz and four RBIs from third baseman Ty Wigginton, Trembley proclaimed, "We're starting the pennant drive."
