On a small sheet of ice, ringed by a rustic frame of cattails, the boys of winter play their game. The pond hockey season below the Mason-Dixon line can have the lifespan of a mayfly, so they embrace the moment with all the energy of an end-to-end rush. This is hockey as nature intended: pure, uncomplicated, joyous. No one complains about having to shovel the surface clear of snow or when slush soaks sweatpants as a skidding puck throws up a rooster tail of spray. Backpacks and winter boots mark goals and everyone is a referee.

It was pretty much a given that Joe Vogelpohl's kids would love hiking. As a ranger at Patapsco Valley State Park, Vogelpohl spends most of his days on trails and often takes his children, Isaac, 4, and Cecelia, 1, along on weekends. Cecilia is usually strapped to Vogelpohl's back, while Isaac can hike four miles, walking most of the way and being carried every now and then. "We have done lots of hiking," says Vogelpohl, who lives in Sykesville. "I started them early. " He lets his children set their own pace and encourages exploration and detours along the way. Isaac often stops on the trail to skip rocks in the stream or look for bugs.

MUCH HAS BEEN written in The Sun recently about the state of Maryland's school libraries and how the community -- primarily the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) -- can resuscitate them. And much of that discussion has centered on rebuilding sparse and outdated book collections. However, while stocking schools' shelves is among our key goals (and will consume a good portion of the money represented in our comprehensive plan), getting school libraries up to Maryland standards will take much more.

GreenStone Industries Inc. said yesterday that its fourth-quarter revenue increased 102 percent but its net income dropped by 16.9 percent, partly as the result of plant start-up costs and the rising cost of newspaper.The suburban Washington company, which makes cellulose insulation and other specialty fibers from recycled paper, had a public stock offering in July that raised $8.5 million. This allowed it to buy two small cellulose insulation companies with factories in Oregon, Arizona and Nebraska.
