Sydney Miller, a 15-year-old sophomore at Broadneck High School in Annapolis, lost more than 30 pounds after switching to a vegan diet and giving up all processed foods last year. She also helped her dad, Todd Miller, lose weight. "I eat completely clean," she says. "Adults come up to me and ask me how I do it. " Sydney, who is hoping to be a nutritionist, is sharing her interest in eating well through a multimedia project she created for BeeQuest, a national competition that asks high school students the question: "What's Nutrition Mean to You?"

An instant icon, she quickly became as familiar to MTViewers as Madonna or Beavis and Butt-head.Needless to say, that had its advantages to Blind Melon. After two years on the club circuit, the band suddenly found itself with a Top-40 smash and a multi-platinum album.

The recent article noting the efforts of Nathan Reid to raise the public's awareness of plant pollinators ( "Bee conscious of what you plant," July 13) reminds me that The Sun also published an article last June regarding a memorandum signed by President Barack Obama authorizing the formation of a committee to look into matter of possible loss of plant pollinators in the United States. Given that the committee has six months to accumulate findings and publish a report, one wonders how long it will take the bumbling and much-lobbied Congress to pass legislation based on this committee's findings.

How do you study for a test when the potential list of questions is as big as the world?For fourth- through eighth-grade students around the country who are participating in their local schools' geography bees, studying can mean anything from reading books about foreign lands to scanning globes and maps and wandering wherever their eyes might take them.They watch "Jeopardy," use study card sets such as Brain Quest and play the computer game "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?""If it's a map or something like that, I usually go to the states or countries that I know least about, and study them," said Andie Wyatt, 10, who won the bee at Carrolltowne Elementary School in Eldersburg.

From geography bees to science competitions, young people across the country face off in all sorts of academic contests. The nation's top spellers have been featured on ESPN and in a hit movie. So why not a "poetry bee"? The Chicago-based Poetry Foundation is working with the National Endowment for the Arts on pilot programs in high schools there and in the Washington, D.C., area that could lead to a national student poetry recitation contest. Students in a West Side Chicago high school have begun organizing the first such event, scheduled for April 11 at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater.

As Nathan Reid wandered around his Canton neighborhood, he saw threats everywhere. Empty tree wells, weedy window boxes and flowers that bloomed and died before the end of summer - unkind conditions for the fuzzy, buzzing set. "I want homeowners to become more conscientious gardeners," he told a room full of his neighbors Sunday afternoon. "Honeybees depend on it. " The honeybee enthusiast - or honeybee steward, as he prefers to be called - gathered about 30 people in the basement of a church to emphasize the need to save the insects, which not only produce honey, but also pollinate plants and help in the growing of close to a third of the world's crops.

For more than a decade, Golden West Cafe has been slingin' Southwest cuisine to the denizens of Hampden and beyond, in addition to live music, comedy shows and a solid bar in the back. Primarily a whiskey bar, Golden West's cocktail list displayed on a regularly changing rotation always showcases the brown stuff, and more often than not with a Southwest twist. Bartender Charlie Long and company are ready to debut a new set of whiskey based cocktails, one of the punchiest of the lot being the Killer Bee. Despite the ominous sounding name, the Killer Bee is designed to be "a bit lighter for the spring and summer," according to Long.

- Every week this spring, Pat Groller drove to remote Dorchester Pond and traipsed through the forest, bucket in hand, to check her traps. Her quarry: The mysterious bees that keep wildflowers blooming here year after year. "It's a trek, but I've enjoyed it," Groller said recently after she'd collected the contents of nine colored plastic cups staked out on the ground. She logs more than 90 miles round-trip from her home in Preston to run traps at three wooded sites on the Eastern Shore.

The mysterious die-off of honey bees continues, as beekepers across the nation lost more than one in three of their colonies since last spring, researchers reported Thursday.  The losses in Maryland were even more extreme, where nearly half were lost, according to the state's chief apiary inspector. The national survey of beekeepers found that they lost one in five honey bee colonies over the winter, fewer than the winter before. But they reported seeing substantial die-off in summer as well, pushing their year-round losses to more than a third.
