Many thanks for The Sun's long-standing, enthusiastic support for expanding pre-K in Maryland ( "The agenda for 2014," Jan. 8). We especially appreciate The Sun's assessment that expanded access will help give our children a competitive edge and narrow the achievement gap. I would like to help address The Sun's concern about finding "a realistic way to pay for it. " One thing children practice in pre-K is creative thinking skills, and...

Baltimore County is selling address books to raise money to help adults and children whose poverty, mental illness or drug addiction keeps them address-less. The book, called "let's address homelessness," is selling well at $10 a copy, officials said. County officials hope that the books -- filled with photographs of homeless adults and children, drawings, testimonials, statistics and inspirational sayings -- will raise about $30,000 to aid the homeless.

Celebrity chefs have become a big business in recent years. Rare are the kitchen products, from pots and pans to garlic presses, that do not carry an endorsement from some chef with a cable television show and a chain of restaurants. Paula Deen is just such a person and received considerable attention last week when it was revealed that she has had type 2 diabetes for the past three years. This would not be particularly notable - diabetes is on the rise in this country, with more than 25 million adults and children affected by it - except for one thing.

As Maryland's hospitals brace for the worst that the swine flu pandemic could offer, they are making big changes in the way they handle visitors - restricting children, limiting certain adult visitors and issuing face masks at entrances - in an effort to stem the virus' spread. In a recent poll by the Maryland Hospital Association, 15 of 39 hospitals' representatives said they had already put new policies into place. Almost all of the others said they are considering a policy change but hadn't finalized the details.

The school day had not yet started, but Maggie Gann perused an assortment of books on a table in the Dublin Elementary School cafeteria. The kindergartner grabbed Big Red Barn. She took a seat nearby and listened as her father, Kevin Gann, read the book, a tranquil tale about a day in the life of a barnyard by Margaret Wise Brown. The Darlington residents then discussed the book and worked on a craft project. It was the 5-year-old's first time attending Read With Me, a before-school program for all grades where pupils can spend time with books and family.

The children in the East Baltimore neighborhood where four of their own died in an arson fire this morning thought they had grown numb to the ongoing violence in their lives.But the fire, coming less than 12 hours after a 2-year-old was shot on a nearby street, was too much for even the most jaded youths.Cousins Lakecia Wheatley, Donte Wheatley and Anton Davis had chased the racing fire trucks to the 2400 block of East Eager Street, never guessing the scene of horror they would find there.

"Taylor Bedell and Allison Reece giggled as they stuffed straw into a pair of trousers. "This isn't as easy as it looks," 13-year-old Taylor said. "When you stuff the legs you have to make sure they're the same size and that the legs bend easily when you sit the scarecrow down. If the legs are too stiff the scarecrow can't sit." Allison conducted a flexibility test on one of the legs before continuing. "You also have to be able to touch and work with straw," the 10-year-old said. The Bel Air girls were learning how to make scarecrows at Brad's Produce Farm in Churchville, one of several locations in Harford County that are gearing up for fall by rolling out an assortment of seasonal activities including pumpkin patches, corn mazes, scarecrow-making and hayrides.
ENTERTAINMENT

For now, Michael Jackson is off the hook - but society may not be so fortunate. The entertainer, of course, beat the rap this month in his child molestation trial, yet its tawdriness was just the latest element undermining the once-wistful notion of childhood. No matter what the jury decided about Jackson, the damage was already done: Childhood has been sullied by suspicion and innuendo. From revelations about child sexual abuse by Catholic clergy to what feels like an increasing number of news accounts of teachers, coaches and parents accused of sexually abusing minors, the world seems awash in imperiled urchins and predatory grown-ups.
