For about a year, the 14 Wharf Tower bells on Columbia's Lakefront Plaza have been silent. The bells had pealed on the hour for more than 20 years, but few noticed the loss immediately, not even Alton J. Scavo, Rouse Co. general manager for Columbia. Columbia Association President Maggie J. Brown looked into having the bells repaired; the estimate was $65,000. She thought she could propose the repair for the Columbia Association's fiscal year 2004 budget, but then Scavo called about a month ago and asked about the carillon.

Manuel Vazquez Montalban, 64, one of Spain's best-known authors and the creator of the Barcelona-based detective Pepe Carvalho, died yesterday during a stopover at Bangkok International Airport, on his way back to Madrid after giving a series of lectures in Australia. A poet, playwright and prolific political commentator, he leaves behind a body of work that spans four decades and brought him numerous literary awards. His 1990 novel Galindez - which earned him Spain's National Literature Award and the European Literature Award in 1992 - has been adapted into the Spanish film The Galindez Mystery, due for release soon in the United States.

George T. Harrison thinks this town could use some bells.Before moving to Baltimore 26 years ago, Harrison had lived in the Southern and Southwestern United States. He remembers those places for the chiming of bells from churches and town halls."I've always liked bells," says Harrison, who, at 78, remains active in local oil and real estate companies. "A big city like this, with so many churches, needs some bells. You rarely seem to hear them, except maybe on Sundays."Thanks primarily to Harrison's efforts, bells will be ringing daily in downtown Baltimore after a carillon is installed this week at Old St. Paul's Episcopal Church.

PHILADELPHIA - The country's second-oldest carillon will soon ring again over Rittenhouse Square, perhaps as early as Christmas Eve. First hung atop the Church of the Holy Trinity in 1882, the carillon was donated by a Philadelphia dry-goods merchant in memory of his wife. Corrosion silenced it eight years ago, but a parishioner's hefty check started a restoration that began in February. Once rusty and dirty, the carillon's 25 copper bells now gleam golden, and they can be played manually or electronically.

Many churchgoers at houses of worship across the country think they are hearing the soft ringing of old bells, when what they are really hearing is a computer. Yes, even the church bell is going digital."It has no moving parts but the exact same sound," said Paul Kozlak, a contract salesman for Schulmerich, a bell manufacturing company based in Sellersville, Pa., 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia.The digital bells "reproduce the sound of carillon bells exactly," Kozlak said.The Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York, the world's largest gothic cathedral, has used Schulmerich mechanical bells since the 1970s while its bell towers are under construction.

Many years ago, our family enjoyed a visit to Bok Tower in central Florida. I have never forgotten how beautiful the tower and surrounding grounds are. I would like to visit again, preferably at a time when there are a lot of carillon concerts. I'll welcome any help.Bok Tower is a beauty, 205 feet of coquina stone and pink marble. The carillon has 57 bronze bells weighing from 17 pounds to an 11-ton whopper. The tower sits at the summit of the Florida peninsula's tallest hill, Iron Mountain, elevation 298 feet.

More than 30 chefs from the some of the country's best restaurants and culinary schools (including New York's Culinary Institute of America and Rhode Island's Johnson and Wales College of Culinary Arts) will be poised to cook you a wine brunch Sunday in Wilmington, Del. While the event may be out of town, there's a local tie: The herbs and seasonings the chefs are using all come from Baltimore-based Vanns Spices. The annual event, called Meals From the Masters, raises money for local chapters of Meals on Wheels, a nationwide nonprofit program that delivers hot meals to homebound seniors.
