An article yesterday about a canned-food drive at Reisterstown Road Plaza to benefit the Maryland Food Bank omitted mention of a radio station that organized the drive -- WERQ-FM, known as "92Q." The station had help from Ryder Truck Rental. The Sun regrets the error. A canned food drive aiming to replenish the severely depleted shelves of Maryland pantries and food banks got off to a good start this weekend, somewhat to the surprise of organizers. "It's not the traditional time of year when people are thinking about the hungry," said Bill Ewing, the Maryland Food Bank's executive director.

As Hurricane Irene approached Baltimore, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake set up automated phone calls to dispense emergency advice to residents, but the well-intentioned effort was met with annoyance from some who said they were awakened by the calls in the middle of the night. The automated phone calls to several hundred thousand residents Friday afternoon were supposed to stop at 9 p.m. Rawlings-Blake's recorded voice urged constituents to stock up on food, water and emergency supplies in case of prolonged power outages.

Like the 40 other people who attended Howard County's second informational meeting on the potential Y2K computer problem in Clarksville last night, the slim, serious woman with the short blond hair waited patiently through seemingly endless official assurances that all is well.Her question was as reasonable as the others: How can any unexpected glitch be fixed quickly if it doesn't appear until that moment when 2000 begins?She seemed satisfied with the answer -- that it likely would be an isolated failure, easily bypassed -- as did others who attended the session in the Ten Oaks Ballroom.

"This year Joanne said she would get a military-style haircut if they raised their goal of $2,200," Sebastian said.

Welcome back Top Cheffers! I missed you all last week, but I was too busy baking pumpkin whoopie pies for Thanksgiving to recap "Top Chef: Texas.

As I write this, Thanksgiving is only hours away, and I still have no idea what I am serving. There will be a turkey, of course. And potatoes and vegetables and stuffing and gravy. But exactly what form these basic elements will take is still under discussion with my daughter, who believes she was cruelly separated at birth from Ina Garten. I call it "Thanksgiving in the time of the Food Network: All bets are off. " These cooking shows — which are to college students what soap operas were to us when we were in school — have produced a generation of confident young cooks who don't think you have to have years of practice under your belt before you prepare your first truffle.

As a parent of 2.5 children (one 7, one 3 and one on the way), I find that kids, as Art Linkletter said, really do say the darndest things.But recently, I have found that kids DO the darndest things, too.Over the past several months, I've been watching the actions of several children who attend Sandymount Elementary School, where my 7-year-old daughter is a second-grader. Their desire and initiative to become involved locally in social issues at such an early age has been inspiring.For example, during the month of April, fourth-grade students Morgan Bernstein, Dyanna Parker and Chad Zimmerman have taken it upon themselves to conduct a canned food drive at the school to benefit Carroll County Food Sunday.

About 25 third-graders at Woodmont Academy in Cooksville eagerly raced to get their weight of choice at the beginning of class and immediately began their 10-lap warm-up run inside the school's gym. The students ran around the gym - many pumping their arms with the added resistance to increase the level of difficulty for their workout. At first glance, a passer-by might not realize that the weights the students were using were canned goods brought by them to eventually be donated to the needy.

Sometime between parting with $80 for dubious pantry staples, discovering the scent of baking cat food to be something less than potpourri and nursing a blister earned trying to carve pounds of kibble into kitten-sized morsels, it sunk in: I'm a buyer, not a maker, of pet food. And that's not even counting the kitty's disparaging review of my labors on his behalf. Yet after a number of dogs and cats died last year from contaminated commercial pet food, more animal owners are consulting cookbooks, scouring the Internet for tips, investing in odd ingredients and devoting hours of free time, all to serve their furry companions homemade casseroles, soups and stews.
