There's news out of Taneytown. The Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel has announced that Spencer Wolff is the new executive chef at its Smokehouse Restaurant. Wolff replaces Michael Gettier, who left his position at the country house hotel earlier this fall. Gettier is remembered by Baltimore diners for his Fells Point restaurant, M. Gettier, and its follow-up, M. Gettier's Orchard Inn in Towson. Gettier is now running his own Baltimore-based cooking concern, Kerfuffle Foods, which supplies vegetarian cuisine to the wholesale and catering trade, according to the company's website.

What's new at Antrim 1844? Not much, really. If it wasn't your thing then, it still won't be now. But If you enjoyed coming up to Taneytown for your 30th anniversary dinner at the Smokehouse Restaurant, you won't regret the drive up to northwest Carroll County for your 40th. For one thing, the fixed price for six-course meal is $68.50, which is only $8 more than it was in 2002. The dining rooms, set on a lower level of the 1844 mansion, are as you remember them, formally set with pretty china and glassware, but cool and comfortable.

Antrim 1844, a well-known Taneytown bed and breakfast, has been named one of "The Year's Top Ten Inns" by Country Inns, a magazine for upscale travelers.The magazine described the Antrim as a "stunning antebellum property set amid splendid grounds." The inn, owned by Richard and Dorothy Mollett, was one of two chosen from Maryland. The other was Stone Manor Inn, an 18th-century farmhouse in Middletown in Frederick County."It's a great honor. There are so many wonderful inns, hundreds and hundreds that are eligible," Dorothy Mollett said.

The magic of our evening at Antrim 1844 started miles before we arrived at the gracious brick mansion in Taneytown. As we passed farms and meadows on a country road, our moods changed. Stress seemed to slip away. We were on a dining adventure.Dorothy and Richard Mollett have turned the 23-acre former plantation in Carroll County into a country inn with 15 guest rooms and a restaurant serving an elaborate, five-course dinner nightly. There were a few uneven moments during our evening at Antrim, but they did not stand out -- not even at $55 a person.

Against the backdrop of an elegant 19th-century mansion, state and Carroll County education officials announced this week plans to pilot a mentoring program aimed at encouraging new teachers to stick with the profession. Concerned about startling statistics on retention - one state school official said nearly two-thirds of new teachers leave the classroom by the end of their third year - officials are focusing on mentoring as a way to help teachers through their first two years. "We're giving them a window of what some of the opportunities are and the support systems" that are available to beginning teachers, said state schools Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick.

MANY YOUNG MEN like to lift weights and bulk up their muscles. But Taneytown resident Charlie Poole has taken it to the nth degree. The 1998 graduate of Francis Scott Key High School earned the title Junior World Champion of the Musclemania Superbody, a competition held last month in Miami. Poole edged out other young amateurs from as far as Argentina, Ireland, Haiti and Spain. Poole became interested in weightlifting when he was in high school and played fullback for the varsity football team.

I've never been to a restaurant that illustrates the axiom "If you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford it" as well as Antrim 1844 does. The graceful antebellum mansion, now an inn and restaurant, is particularly beautiful this time of year. The late afternoon sun streams into the elegantly appointed rooms, and a breeze stirs the newly green trees just outside the tall windows. Of course, the setting isn't quite as rural as it used to be. The former plantation is now surrounded by housing developments, which are -- luckily --mostly hidden by the magnificent trees and other plantings on the grounds of the inn. The six-course dinner, served at 7 p.m., is a fixed price; it costs $62.50.

DAYS BEFORE the Great Chefs Dinner, a glittering extravaganza held this week at the Center Club, the Dover sole was in doubt and the lettuce appeared to be lost. When Lynn Kennedy-Tilyou, the chef at Antrim 1844 Country Inn, who was in charge of the meal, first went in search of sole, the news was not good. She was told that the area of the Baltic Sea where the sole were supposed to be swimming was temporarily closed to fishing. In the chef's plan, the fish was going to be her first course, a roulade of Dover sole stuffed with a roasted pepper and scallops mousseline.

Dining disagreementsEditor: Regarding a recent review by Elizabeth Large of Antrim 1844 [Sept. 11], her unfocused comments reveal a failure to grasp the concept of what is a truly unique and charming establishment. As a former and future patron of Antrim, I have found its various quirks are what define it, not detract from it.Further, Ms. Large superseded her role of objective reviewer by opining about what she wished the menu to be, rather than what it is. Antrim is not a faddish, two course, eat-it-and-beat-it operation, but rather a destination to be enjoyed for a relaxing evening.
