Buckeystown is a quaint little village that lies off the beaten path. The town would most likely have been overlooked by travelers, had it not been for the 1981 opening of a bed and breakfast inn. Built in 1897, the restored inn now enjoys an international reputation. The Inn at Buckeystown will be open along with seven other homes and two churches during "Discover Historic Buckeystown," Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.Established in 1775, this small Frederick County village is on the National Register of Historic Places.

SHADY GROVE — As she hurried to a Metro station after shaking hands with Democratic congressional candidate John Delaney, Lawrencia Atakora said she'd support him because of his positions on the issues. But she quickly added another factor influencing her decision: She hadn't heard a word from Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett. "I don't really know who he is," the 23-year-old Gaithersburg resident said of the Republican incumbent, who has represented Maryland's 6th District since she was 3 years old. "That could have something to do with it as well.

Unlike the gourmet "last supper" it described, Friday's TJI column was not perfect. I referred to the owner of the award-winning Inn at Buckeystown, in Frederick County, as Dave Pelz. As all of his many guests know, his name is Dan Pelz. (I know a writer named Dave Belz, and apparently allowed the two names to become scrambled.) I regret the error. Just call me Bob.Before we get started, allow me a word about yesterday's lunch with Joey Amalfitano. We went to a small-chain Italian restaurant, and Joey asked for a big salad.

"It's a little more radio-friendly, a little lighter overall compared to the stuff I used to write."
