Usually, Jim Calcutt said, people can drive through the one-stop-sign town of Darlington in a minute and a half. All that changes on the first Saturday of October. That's when the Apple Festival comes to town. On that day, the town with a population of about 750 swells to the thousands. "It's mind-boggling on Main Street and Shuresville Road," festival organizer Calcutt said. "During the festival, you can't see the pavement. It's wall-to-wall people." Yesterday's overcast weather might have slightly affected attendance.

Bob Ehrlich's recent column claiming that multiculturalism destroys democracy takes a very Eurocentric view of America ("Multiculturalism is the enemy of democracy," June 2). It selectively glosses over some of the ugly things our nation has done on its way to becoming who we are today. The idea that America was built on a foundation of economic and political freedom, regardless of class, economic status or education, is a pleasant fiction, but the reality was quite different. When our country was founded, only white, land-owning males were allowed to vote.

Bonita Burbank from Redmond, Ore., was looking for a recipe for what she called mock apple pie. She said this was a popular recipe back in the 1970s and that it was made with Ritz crackers in place of apples. Many readers sent in the recipe for a two-crust pastry version of a mock apple pie that appeared on the box of Ritz crackers back in the day. (In fact, several readers sent me the recipe cut from the side of the Ritz box.) I also received several recipe versions from the Internet.

This sleepy little village of 500 residents once again was teeming with visitors as thousands of people made an annual pilgrimage to celebrate autumn with its annual Apple Festival.By midday, a half-mile stretch of Shuresville Road, from Main Street to just north of the elementary school, was a sea of people."I think it's a combination of the setting, the season and the genuine feeling of friendliness that has made this event so successful," said June Griffith, who, with her husband, Bill, operates the Darlington Country Store.

"Gram" Baugher, a co-founder of the Westminster restaurant that bears her name and that is known for its country cooking and homemade apple pies, died Friday of complications from Alzheimer's disease at her Carroll County farm. She was 94. The daughter of a sharecropper, Romaine V. Leppo was born and raised on a Bachman Valley farm. She attended one-room Carroll County schools before marrying Edward S. Baugher, a Carroll County farmer, in 1932. "She drove the horses in the field when plowing and rode horses to school.

In the rural village of Darlington, local workers picked, polished, cored, sliced, spiced and cooked bushels of the fall fruit yesterday in celebration of the eighth annual Darlington Apple Festival.More than 30,000 fair-goers hungry for a taste of fall were expected to visit the popular one-day event to sample apple pies, apple cakes, apple dumplings, apple muffins, apple cider, apple crepes and caramel apples at this decidedly apple-oriented affair."It's an old-fashioned day in the country," said Debbie Grady, owner of Stonehouse Country Home, an antique and gift shop in Darlington, who set up a candy stand outside the store.

DARLINGTON - If you see Jim Calcutt driving down Main Street this week, chances are he has some apple pies in his white pickup truck. The co-chairman of Darlington's Apple Festival isn't the only one ferrying apple fritters, cakes and other goodies from freezers to bake tables this week. Dozens of folks in this Harford County hamlet of 750 are hurrying to get ready for Saturday's expected crowd of 50,000. "It's just a real country-type thing," said Calcutt, 58. "All the people coming up from the city want to get out in the country for a day."

On Thanksgiving, the pies are plural, and that reason alone makes the day the best holiday of the year. If we had any sense of restraint, or caloric guilt, we would defer dessert on this day. But on Thanksgiving, almost no one says no to pie. Instead, most of us - me included - profess to have "just a little sliver, of each." The all-hallowed pumpkin pie, whose mild flavor and bland spicing are welcome at the end of such a rich meal, almost qualifies, I would argue, as a vegetable. Moreover, children - the torch-carriers of tradition - insist on its presence.

The nation owes a debt to its military veterans and their families. Their service to the nation deserves more than a mere thank-you and a monthly pension check or occasional parade. Their sacrifices have kept this country free and they should be honored for that. But there are others in our society who deserve similar praise. Police and firefighters who have risked their lives to keep our streets safe. Teachers, paramedics, the clergy, social workers, the list of those who have worked in the public's interest (often for relatively low pay)

Some were shocked when President Obama took time in his State of the Union speech Wednesday night to chastise the Supreme Court for its recent decision on campaign finance, suggesting this amounted to a violation of some deeply held principle. But presidential attacks on the federal judiciary are as American as apple pie and predate baseball. Abraham Lincoln's first inaugural address declared: "The candid citizen must confess that if the policy of the government is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers."

The Carroll County Farm Museum has 18 old buildings that include a farmhouse finished in 1853, a bank barn, a smokehouse, a broom shop, a saddlery, a springhouse, a living-history center, a wagon shed, a general store exhibit and a one-room schoolhouse. The location is ideal for living-history re-enactments and blacksmith days, but museum officials wanted to reach beyond history, said Dottie Freeman, the museum's administrator. "We decided we needed to be more than just a museum," Freeman said.

Heather Swartz of Lawrence, N.J., was looking for a recipe for Apple-Cream Pie that she had clipped from an advertisement for coffee in a women's magazine in the mid-1970s. She remembers it as pretty much of a standard apple pie except that cream was poured over the apple mixture so that it formed a custardlike filling. Connie Gialiani of Baltimore sent in a recipe that fits that description. She came across it in a copy of the Pillsbury Bake-off recipe booklet from 1965. In fact, the Apple-Cream Pie was the winner that year.
