MERRY CHRISTMAS, Ajax Eastman; also to Emily, your granddaughter, almost a year old.My desk, as I prepare a tribute to your life in service to the Maryland environment, is awash with clippings and documents attesting to your decades of accomplishment.From Assateague's beaches, to the legislative swamps of Annapolis, to the whitewater of Garrett County's Youghiogheny River, I've watched you in action for 25 years.A few weeks ago it was my pleasure to see Maryland's government bestow upon you a singular award, the finest any environmentalist could hope for.But what I may remember longest is this: arriving a couple weeks ago at the big, old, welcoming white house on Lake Avenue, finding you intensely occupied by your latest project -- 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. day care, three days a week, for Emily.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL movement in the United States was in its infancy, searching for a way to link diverse, seemingly disconnected interests. The first Earth Day was yet to dawn. The civic-minded Junior League held a national conference on environmental issues. Alice "Ajax" Eastman, already active in charity projects for the Baltimore chapter, attended the Chicago meeting with friend Virginia Mock. They returned to survey Maryland's environmental needs and determined to revive an old idea: the returnable, mandatory-deposit beverage container.

Everyone tried to avoid Ajax and police dog handler Cpl. John Carhart early yesterday at the state police barracks in Westminster. They smelled like pigs, but with good reason. Ajax (pronounced eye-ax), a 4-year-old German shepherd, and Carhart had tracked a burglary suspect through woods and a pig farm in Mount Airy for more than an hour before making an arrest. Paws and boots were caked with mud and manure, and an unmistakable pig odor clung to man, beast and the rear kennel area of Carhart's cruiser.

Paris -- When Amsterdam's professional soccer team, Ajax o Amsterdam, takes the field to play other Netherlands clubs, a hissing, whistling sound rises from the stands occupied by the opposing club's supporters.What is this meant to be? The sound of gas escaping from the gas chambers of Nazi death camps. Why? In the 1930s, Ajax was the favorite club of the Jewish middle class of Amsterdam. Ever since, it has been called the Jewish team.Today, according to a report in the Paris daily, Le Monde, about 20 percent of the crowd that turns out for Ajax is Jewish.

PHILADELPHIA - Ajax is in the landscaping business, so her days start near dawn.First there's some coffee and a drive to the work site. Later, there's a break for lunch, some sniffing, some scratching, and maybe even a little stick-chasing.It's all in a day's work for the blond pit bull, full-time partner to Bart Sharf, owner of Budget Tree & Landscape in Bucks County, Pa., outside Philadelphia.Dogs such as Ajax may be common companions in pickup-truck dogprofessions, but what about canine co-workers for the white-collar set?

"Black Ajax," by George MacDonald Fraser. Carroll & Graf. 249 pages. $23."Black Ajax" is based on the life of Tom Molineaux, a former American slave whose extraordinary boxing ability won him his freedom. He arrived in England in 1809 and created a sensation by nearly beating Tom Cribb, the undefeated bare-knuckle boxing champion, in a punishing 34-round match.Then, as now, the sport was plagued by unscrupulous promoters and hangers-on. Fraser portrays boxing, with some relish, as brutal and bloody but artful.

I'm vigilant about cleaning my stainless-steel All-Clad cookware, but sometimes I get rainbow-colored or cloudy white stains that I can't remove. What causes these stains and how do I remove them? I called Bill Groll at All-Clad Metalcrafters in Canonsburg, Pa. Because he is vice president of technology, one of his corporate responsibilities is to stain the company's pots and pans and then figure out how to clean them. Groll said your "rainbow" stains are actually very thin layers of caramelized oil. Like a glass prism, the oil refracts light at different angles, causing a rainbow effect.

It is too bad that Timothy Wheeler failed to mention in Thursday's article "Offshore wind farm wins OK" (April 29) the enormous costs of offshore wind, requiring huge tax subsidies, or the fact that wind turbines will do very little to offset carbon emissions due to wind's intermittency, or that birds are not the only species that will be impacted.
