When Anne Arundel County's 73,700 students return to public schools this week, they better not have on cut-offs, midriff-bearing shirts, or short shorts.A new dress code that goes into effect today lays down the law on clothes: "Students have the right and responsibility to choose their attire and to arrange their personal appearance in a manner which is healthy, safe, inoffensive and not disruptive to the educational process."Students in appropriate clothing will eat in gaily decorated cafeterias in many elementary schools around the county, greeted by servers trained to be nice.

Barbra Katz Rosenberg from Baltimore, a frequent contributor to this column, was seeking the recipe for the sticky buns that were served in the cafeterias at many Baltimore City schools back in the '60s. She said before her family moved to Baltimore County, her lunch would consist of one of the sticky buns, a hard pretzel and orange juice five days a week. "I didn't know about carbs way back then," she said. She would really like to be able to taste the sticky buns again. I received several responses from readers who offered recipes that they thought made reasonable copies of the popular school-system sticky bun from years back.

Luby's Cafeterias" 'Good food from good people' is more than a company slogan for Luby's cafeterias (LUB, NYSE, around $18); it is a customer-oriented philosophy that accounts for much of the firm's success," says Geraldine Weiss of Investment Quality Trends, La Jolla, Calif."

When students return to Perry Hall High School for the first day of school Aug. 27, they will find new safety measures in place, as well as an opportunity to get psychological counseling. "We know the anxiety is going to go up," said Principal George A. Roberts on Thursday. The school has applied for, and received, a federal grant to help students, staff and faculty who may have emotional needs as they enter the building nearly a year to the day after a student opened fire in the cafeteria, seriously injuring another student.

My daughter Arielle had her first day of kindergarten last week. Parents were invited to stay in the classroom through circle time. As I sat cross-legged next to my wife on our portion of the magic circle, I listened to morning announcements with a renewed sense of interest - not as a parent, but as a food marketer. I have spent a good portion of the past 13 years working with manufacturers to sell food and beverage products into school lunch programs. And while I'm well versed in federal and state guidelines, including "bread equivalents," whole grain requirements, commodity programs and menu cycles, I have not looked at school lunch from the vantage point of the gatekeeper audience: parents.

You may recall the name of your second-grade teacher, the year you learned to multiply or that nasty scrape from falling off the monkey bars. But chances are, your memories of the school cafeteria are even more acute. Sticky buns baking in the oven, the gossip and pranks, the cafeteria ladies themselves: Together, they've left an indelible impression on former students who decades later can describe the fear or thrill of buying a school lunch for the first time and rhapsodize over the peanut-butter fudge served for dessert.

The advertisement caught my eye: "Let's eat. Fried scrapple and hominy. It's only thirteen cents. " It appeared at the bottom of The Sun's local news page in 1934. If that amount seems low, I found another — 10 cents for country sausage and fried mush. Adjusted for inflation, the scrapple was $2.06 in today's money. The mush (a corn meal dish) would be $1.56 today. These dishes were standard fare at Baltimore's Oriole Cafeteria chain, a business that prospered during the Depression.

The corner of North and Charles promises to be full of Artscape visitors this weekend, but how many of them will realize there is a thriving and changing residential community within and behind those commercial blocks? This might be Baltimore's fastest-growing arts residential neighborhood, not just its arts presentation and performance address. But unlike the creative stands strung out along Charles Street this weekend, the results of a lot of residential investment and hard work are not so evident.

Mary Sloan Roby of Baltimore was looking for the recipe for the crab casserole from the old Robertson's Cafeteria in Charleston, S.C. She said it was very creamy and had cheddar cheese melted on the top. Carol Smith of Ellicott City, who said she enjoys researching recipes, thinks she has found it. It comes from an article in the Post & Courier newspaper in Charleston published in June 2006. Frank DuRoss, a manager at Robertson's, had sent in the recipe for the crab casserole from the legendary restaurant.

Seven students at Annapolis High School could face criminal charges stemming from a Monday morning fracas in the school's cafeteria, according to Anne Arundel County police and school officials. Anne Arundel County police spokesman Justin Mulcahy said officers responded to a call at 7:05 a.m. at the school, where a fight between three students had escalated into a brawl between seven. He said all seven students - including two that are old enough to be charged as adults - will face criminal charges, though he could not immediately say what the charges would be. He said there were no reports of weapons used in the fight, though a chair was apparently thrown, he said.

The cafeteria at the Johns Hopkins at Keswick complex was shut down Tuesday after 18 people were sickened with an unknown condition and 600 evacuated from the building in North Baltimore. Fire and emergency management officials are still investigating what caused the illness that gave employees breathing problems, but one of the theories is possible food contamination. We are "trying to chase down what everybody ate," said Connor Scott, a spokesman with the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management.

After an emotional day of testimony, Robert W. Gladden Jr., the 15-year-old charged in the Perry Hall High School cafeteria shooting, was sentenced Monday to 35 years in prison. Baltimore County Circuit Judge Robert E. Cahill Jr. went beyond state sentencing guidelines to put Gladden away until he is at least 50 years old, citing continued fear in Perry Hall along with a national concern for school safety that has grown stronger since the Newtown, Conn. school massacre. Kathleen Watkins, a school administrator, told the court that the school is still working to get past the shooting that injured Daniel Borowy, a 17-year-old special needs student, on the first day of school.

Officer Gary Gephardt heard a loud pop from the Perry Hall High School cafeteria, which he thought could be firecrackers, an exploding milk carton or a gunshot. As teens spilled out of the cafeteria, he drew his service weapon with one hand and blocked fleeing students with the other as he headed into the room. There he found two staff members restraining the alleged shooter and a student lying wounded on the floor, the officer testified Friday in a Baltimore County court hearing.

It was with great interest and sorrow that I read Erma Durkin's commentary on same-sex marriage ("A Catholic for equality," Sept. 29). She sounds like a fine woman who has dedicated her life to mankind. What she is not, at present, is a good Catholic. As a matter of fact, she is not even a Catholic. As one who has been affiliated with the Catholic Church for 44 years, Mrs. Durkin should know that the Church believes that salvation is achieved through both good works and faith. She has lost her faith and strayed from its teachings.

Dozens of boats gathered Saturday around Hart-Miller Island as area residents shared beers, snowballs and their money at a fundraiser for the family of Daniel Borowy, the victim of the shooting at Perry Hall High School. Daniel, a 17-year-old special education student who has Down syndrome, was wounded when a gunman opened fire in the school cafeteria on Aug. 27, the first day of the academic year. It was the teen's first outing since the incident and his first time on a boat.
