Options for outdoor recreation in Anne Arundel County are diverse and abundant. State, county and Annapolis parks and trails provide a variety of environments for walking, hiking, biking and picnicking, as well as ball fields, tennis courts and other areas developed for sports. If nautical recreation appeals, Anne Arundel, with its location on the Chesapeake Bay, rivers and creeks, offers opportunities to spend time on the water. Sandy Point offers fun on the water With 786 acres off U.S. 50 at 1100 E. College Parkway, Sandy Point State Park is busiest during the warmer months when its location on the Chesapeake - hard by the bay bridge - makes it ideal for water-related activities like fishing, crabbing, swimming at the beach and boating.

Noting an "abundance of new information," Howard County prosecutors agreed yesterday to the release on bail of three teen-agers accused of raping a 15-year-old girl last week in a boys' bathroom at an Ellicott City high school. Before a courtroom packed with the teen-agers' family members and reporters, Howard District Judge Pamila J. Brown reversed a decision made by another judge Friday -- at the request of the state's attorney's office and based on the severity of the allegations -- to hold the suspects without bail.

I love multi-tasking, especially in plants. Plants that do two or three things at once hold special places in both my heart and my garden. Like climbing beans, which are marvelous multi-taskers. "Climbing beans are a two-fer," observes Jo-Anne Van den Berg Ohms, president of John Scheepers Kitchen Garden Seeds in Bantam, Conn. "You get quite a show and many produce delicious fruits." Of course, some are all show. For example, hyacinth beans (Dolichos lablab) have gorgeous burgundy vines, big green leaves, mauve flowers, and purple pods, yet the pods, while edible, are not palatable.

Paul Warren is relaxing in the family room of his circa 1890 Park Avenue townhouse in Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood. Far from a typical family room, the 40-by-35-foot space is reminiscent of a grand lobby in an art museum. In 1895, the home's original owner, William Knabe, a Baltimore piano manufacturer, added the room to the back of his house. It once served as a conservatory but has been divided into the family room and the kitchen. Solid Italian marble fluted columns - 20 inches in diameter - line the peripheries of the rooms, joining carved oak beams to form a 20-foot ceiling made of glass panes.

WASHINGTON -- Federal officials said yesterday that a recall of beef products linked to a dairy cow infected with mad cow disease now extends to eight states and Guam, as meat associated with the diseased animal was distributed more widely than investigators first believed. Agriculture officials said the likelihood that the beef is tainted is slim, because all of the tissues known to be affected by bovine spongiform encephalopathy -- that from the brain, spinal cord and a part of the intestine -- were removed before the carcass was processed.

The coaches who faced Jerome Shelton and his St. Frances girls basketball team last season never questioned the Panthers' superior level of talent. The Panthers reigned at No. 1 all season, swept every game in the tough Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference and polished it all off with a second A Conference crown in three years. What Shelton's peers still don't quite understand is how he manages to blend all that talent so smoothly. "He's got a ton of kids and I don't know how he keeps them all happy.

Hip-hop queen Missy Elliott has fired off three albums in three years, but she shows no signs of creative exhaustion on This Is Not a Test! She actually improves on last year's witty, inventive Under Construction, remaining engaging throughout a nearly hourlong blend of rap, soul, R&B and dance grooves. The album has truth-telling lightened with humor, bunches of guest stars who never overshadow her, and clever production by Elliott and longtime musical partner Timbaland that has all manner of beeps, jingles, buzzes, whoops and popping in and out of the mix like tiny sonic jack-in-the-boxes.

"We see it happen three or four times every night," said Patrick O'Connell, the chef and a co-owner of the luxurious Inn at Little Washington in tiny Washington, Va. "They come, they eat dinner, they ask us where the nearest local Realtor is." This, apparently, is how a trend gets its start. Vacationers come to a place that occupies a rarefied spot in the culinary pantheon - in this case, the inn, located in Rappahannock County, in the gently rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, less than an hour and a half from Washington.
