On Monday, May 6, the Harford Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) held its fourth annual Food Fight, bringing together four chefs from around the region to compete in a cooking competition - one wherein each chef prepared, in one hour's time, an appetizer and entree from a basket of secret ingredients. For the first time, the event took place at the Vandiver Inn in Havre de Grace, where Susan, the inn's chef, offered her own version of the secret ingredients for viewers to purchase and enjoy.

SAN FRANCISCO - The National Association of Community Health Centers just couldn't compete with the American Association for Nude Recreation. "Yeah, they're the most popular on our little block," said Dawn McKinney, who sat on the table of her community health group's display booth. She was surrounded by neat stacks of fact sheets, brochures and state-by-state health comparisons - but no visitors. At the next booth, Erich Schuttauf and Paula Fowler were nearly giddy handing out commemorative pins and copies of the North American Guide to Nude Recreation - the 20th edition - to a never-ending stream of legislators, staff, lobbyists and their families.

Roadways today are in the worst condition they have been since the 1940s. In our world of advanced technology how could this have happened? We know that more people are driving every day. Younger Americans frequently have their own car or access to a family vehicle, and older Americans are living longer and driving more in their later years. Goods moved by truck also far exceed those moved by rail, by boat, by barge or by air because of the flexibility trucks have to deliver to your home or neighborhood.

The Pew Research Center reports that mom is the top breadwinner - or the sole breadwinner - in 40 percent of homes with children under 18, and we are talking, again, about how we balance our work and our families. It makes sense. Work and family are the central issues of our lives. It is no wonder that we keep rethinking how to get it right. The Pew report suggests that we are not sure we have. In addition to the facts about who is bringing home the bacon (37 percent are married mothers who have higher incomes than their partners, but 63 percent are single moms)

The recent commentary about St. Mary's College of Maryland, written by Anne Neal, the president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, is troubling on a number of levels - not least of which is that it's not really about St. Mary's ("Cautionary campus tale," May 30). Instead, through a combination of outright factual inaccuracies and very selectively chosen information, Ms. Neal seizes upon the college's 100-student enrollment shortfall to hammer home one of the ACTA's core messages: that American colleges and universities are failing students by turning away from an education focused on western civilization and traditional American values.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Milwaukee has its beer; Seattle its decaf latte.And Alexandria?Interest groups.Alexandria (pop. 110,000) has its quaint historic area and lovely waterfront along the Potomac, but the city has come to stand for the proposition that if there is an interest in America, there is an interest group.Hardly any distinct idea, diversion, profession, passion or product goes unrepresented. Parachuting, boating, fishing all have headquarters in town. Police, district attorneys, veterans, postal workers -- each and every one has an organization here.

Where are the women? In the extreme and ill-tempered debate over the availability of contraceptives for women, we have heard from the president, the bishops of the Roman Catholic Church, the Republican presidential candidates, members if Congress and various talking heads on TV. All of them, so far as I can tell, are men. Men discussing the reproductive rights of women. Where are the women? Even Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was silent as she stood next to President Barack Obama when he announced what he hoped would be a compromise in insurance coverage of contraceptives.

Toni Coleman used to turn to two key ingredients when cooking: sugar and salt. The 68-year-old retired federal government worker figured it probably wasn't healthy, but food just didn't taste good without it. After taking classes offered by the American Heart Association Maryland, the Gwynn Oak resident has learned to cook with herbs, garlic and other fresh ingredients, which has helped her reduce her intake of calories, sodium and other things...

There has been a lot of heated rhetoric recently about the American Studies Association boycott of Israel and academic freedom and a lot of wild accusations being tossed around, but on thing seems to be missing from this whole brouhaha ( "A chilling effect," March 10). People keep talking about "discrimination," but there doesn't seem to be any realization of who exactly is being discriminated against, with both supporters of Israel and supporters of academia claiming to be the "victims.

I would like to disagree with your editorial "A chilling effect" (March 10). I believe that the central issue here is academic freedom. The American Studies Association (ASA), in theory an academic organization devoted to the study of the United States, has violated the essence of academic freedom, which is based on the free flow of ideas, by supporting a boycott of Israeli academic institutions. By calling for the elimination of ties with Israeli colleges and universities, the ASA has taken a political stand which undermines academic freedom.

Over 200 years ago, political theorist and philosopher Edmund Burke memorably remarked: "The only thing necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing. " This truism comes to mind when assessing the reaction of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County to the recent vote by the American Studies Association (ASA) in favor of an academic boycott of Israel. The ASA, of which UMBC is an institutional member, is the nation's oldest and largest association dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of American history and culture.

The University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, joined a group of other U.S. universities in opposing a boycott of Israeli academic institutions announced by the American Studies Association this week. The association, a group of about 5,000 American history and culture professors and scholars, said the boycott is aimed at Israeli policies infringing on human rights and the educational freedoms of Palestinians. Two thirds of the 1,252 members who voted on the resolution supported the boycott.

I hate needles, and I've always deferred to doctors and scientists when it comes to questions of medical importance. Suffice it to say I've been ambivalent since I was a teen about the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's ban on gay men donating blood. Should I be indignant? Or would that be presumptive? Should I be happy with my excuse not to get pricked? Or should I feel bad about not giving? After devouring the history of the gay rights movement in college and later spending a year working closely with HIV-positive adults and children in an AIDS-ravaged rural town in southern Africa -- partly on efforts to prevent mother-to-child transmission -- I'd come no closer to having an answer.
