Caroline B.T. Maddux, a retired real estate agent and volunteer, died of ovarian cancer Thursday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The longtime Roland Park resident was 76. Caroline Byrd Tall was born and raised in Baltimore. Her father, Luther Tall, a Baltimore haberdasher, had owned and operated Payne and Merrill, a venerable Charles Street men's clothing store. She was a 1948 graduate of Roland Park Country School and attended Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg, Va. "She wanted to go to New York and become a Rockette, but her father wouldn't let her go above the Mason-Dixon Line, so he sent her to college in Virginia instead," said a daughter, Holly L.

The Scientific American blog network has a juicy looking collection of posts up on the subject of food and eating. The round-up is called Passions of Food .

LONDON -- British Telecommunications PLC posted a second-quarter net loss that was smaller than analysts expected, as growth in its business combined with one-time charges, including a government tax.BT said it lost 32 million pounds, or $53 million, in the second quarter, compared with net income of 461 million pounds a year earlier.The main reason for the loss was a 510 million pound one-time tax, levied by the government as part of a drive to recoup alleged "excess profits" from previously state-owned utilities that were sold to the public.

The Environmental Protection Agency has announced a series of new regulations aimed at reducing the environmental risk of corn genetically engineered to produce its own insecticide. The decision Friday, awaited by farmers, environmentalists and the biotech industry, was viewed by many as an acknowledgment by the agency of the rising concern over the safety of biotech crops. The corn became a rallying point for environmentalists and opponents of genetic engineering in May when a Cornell University study found that the corn's pollen could kill monarch butterfly caterpillars in the laboratory.

WASHINGTON -- MCI Communications Corp.'s second-quarter profit fell 6.7 percent as wider losses in its local phone business thwarted the company's strategy of targeting high-profit long-distance customers.MCI's net income fell to $280 million, or 40 cents a share, from $300 million, or 43 cents, in the year-earlier period. Sales rose 5.9 percent to $4.84 billion from $4.57 billion, less than the first quarter's 8.7 percent increase.MCI, unlike rivals AT&T Corp. and Sprint Corp., refuses to cut prices to lure low-spending consumers, depending instead on a package of services including local calling.

WAS THE American victory at Yorktown in vain? With the disclosure of British Telecom's $20.8 billion deal to take over MCI Communications, the upstart U.S. long-distance firm that has challenged once-impregnable AT&T, the British are coming. Just as they already have come with Dr. Pepper, Burger King and other brands long regarded in the same category as hot dogs, baseball and the Fourth of July.This latest proposal, the largest trans-Atlantic transaction in history, is written in superlatives that inevitably will affect Americans consumers as they communicate with each other and the world.

Bagworms were a real problem last summer on my 20 large white pines and 50 12-foot Leyland cypresses. What methods can I use to defeat them? Bagworms are native insects that seriously damage, even kill, evergreens. Begin to control them now by removing as many of the bags as you can. Bagworms overwinter in the egg stage. One bag can contain up to 1,000 eggs. Remove bags by hand and drown them in a bucket of soapy water. Typically, egg hatch begins in early June, but it can be earlier in a warm spring, so monitor regularly for little caterpillars.
