It would have been enough for the announced 5,021 at Harry Grove Stadium on Sunday for Frederick's 4-1 win over Wilmington to see the Keys top a prospect-laden Blue Rocks team. But then the game ended, and things got really exciting. The Keys arranged for a helicopter to fly over left field and drop 100 pounds of candy onto the outfield grass, capping off a diverse weekend of promotions for the Orioles' High-A affiliate. Friday was "Girls Night Out," which featured a diamond dig in the infield after the game.

LOOK UP IKE Sass For Fine Chocolates." That was the slogan my handsome grandfather, Isaac Sass, gave his confectionery business. His candy was delicious, and his slogan, unusually bold for 1920s Baltimore, made him a household name.Originally, he did OK selling produce in Hollins Market. Then he got an idea. To boost business on the weekends, he made candy and placed it on two corners of his produce stall. It was at the eye level of children who would pull their parents to his stall and enjoy free candy while Grandpop sold the parents produce.

THE ELTON JOHN of Castle Street remembers his Polish grandmother saving nickels to buy him $4.50 accordion lessons when he was in grade school. The kid was a natural, so good that Uncle Joe would tie the boy and his squeeze box to a kitchen chair to keep the music going. Thirty years later, the polka prodigy plays a half-dozen instruments, writes music the way other people jot down a grocery list, and is looking for the Bernie Taupin of Baltimore to put words to his music. All while working the counter at the A&A Candy & Tobacco Co. on South Broadway to support his young family and make ends meet.

Victoria Fringer of Woodstock, Ill., wrote that she wanted help finding a recipe for vinegar candy. She noted she had been seeking this recipe for a long time and that "We used to make it as children." Kathryn Vaile of Catonsville responded. She wrote: "Hope this will do the trick. This is my grandmother's recipe -- she called it `crack candy.' Once the candy had cooled, she would crack it with the handle of a knife into pieces. My grandmother lived to 104. I have her handwritten recipe."

Behind her deep Christian faith and family and friends, Alexis Streets delights in tending to another prize possession. This product, though, is designed to be here one minute and gone the next, lifting sagging hearts and spirits.

I am not a smoker, but CVS's decision to stop selling cigarettes is laughable ( "CVS goes smoke free," Feb. 5). The company has obviously done this for the publicity so it can stand out while not caring one iota about consumers' health. If they care so much about consumers' health, why not get rid of the candy, chips, alcohol products and soda pop as well? Maybe they forgot that their tobacco products are drawing customers into the store to make other purchases - such as candy, cosmetics and prescription medication - as well as visit their walk-in "clinics" (as a physician, I object to the irresponsible use of that term)

Bartender Dawn Green, a Little Italy native and part-time bartender at Walt's, will frequently concoct large-volume creations with cute names to dispense to the masses.

An inquiring reader wants to know: "Is 'sugar free' candy really sugar free?"Yes, if you're worried about tooth decay. No, if you're interested in total calories.The sample of real candy the reader sent me has no nutrition label, so it's impossible to get a calorie count. So I looked it up. One ounce of butterscotch hard candy equals about five pieces and contains 112 calories.The ingredients list (for a bag of mixed hard candies including the butterscotch) includes sugar, corn syrup, sweetened condensed milk, apples, pineapples, oranges, molasses and raspberries.

Get the rotten eggs ready. A woman in North Dakota apparently plans to hand out, in lieu of treats, you're-too-fat-for-candy letters to select children on Halloween . I'm a mom who does ration Halloween candy and tries to serve her family healthy foods , but this makes me sick. Yeah, the fat kid probably doesn't need more candy. Is it your job to tell him? Maybe you shouldn't wear those pants because they make your butt look saggy; is it my job to tell you? You know, if you took up jogging, you might lose that pooch I've noticed you're developing.
