When Jessica Case, 11, opened the chocolate bar she bought from a Liberty High School drama club fundraiser, she discovered — along with the candy — a golden ticket inside. "I jumped around and gave it to my mom," said Jessica, a sixth-grader at Sykesville Middle School. Just like the fabled golden tickets featured in the book, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," by Roald Dahl, Jessica's golden ticket, and four others hidden in chocolate bars sold by the drama club, provide winners with a chance to see Willy Wonka's chocolate factory.

When tattoo artist Kristel Oreto recently put a bulletin on her MySpace page saying that she wanted to do a tattoo of the character Augustus Gloop, Ryan Clement seized the opportunity. Yesterday at the Baltimore Tattoo Arts Convention, Oreto inked the image of Gloop - the glutton who is the first child to win a trip to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - on Clement's leg. Clement, a former Army staff sergeant who lives in Richmond, Va., is a tattoo artist himself.

The new James Dean stamp is selling well, and a 40th-anniversary reissue of his last movie is set for theatrical release this fall.The 1971 film of Roald Dahl's children's book, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," is scheduled for a 25th-anniversary reissue.The box-office success of Jackie Chan's "Rumble in the Bronx" has inspired Miramax to arrange a wider release for one of his earlier Hong Kong classics.Everything old is new again, mostly because reissues are relatively cheap to mount and almost always profitable.

He pleads. He prays. He scolds. He repents, kind of. We've heard it all before, of course, though now the stakes are a bit higher. On R. Kelly's new album, Chocolate Factory (Jive), released Tuesday, the R&B star isn't oblivious to the world of trouble he's in. On the contrary, he tries to sing his way out of it with his most traditional-sounding album yet, from its Al Green- and Marvin Gaye-inspired ballads to its steppin' dance mixes. Kelly was indicted last year in Chicago on 21 counts of child pornography, and faces 12 more counts on similar charges after a recent arrest in Florida.

SAN FRANCISCO - Meet the new Willy Wonka: Timothy Childs is a former space-shuttle technologist who's building a 29,000-square-foot chocolate factory on prime waterfront property in the Embarcadero. He stands in the factory's laboratory, inspecting a sample of split-open cocoa beans, pointing out the ones that have been properly fermented and talking intensely about the hedonics of chocolate - as in the hedonistic sensation of eating it, how it melts in the mouth, when it starts to break apart and the way in which flavors and sugars are released.

The smell of chocolate teases the nostrils as Jim Heyl opens the door to the basement of the quaint brick cottage. Clad in a long white apron, he leads the way into a low-ceilinged basement packed with antique machines churning and mixing chocolate. "Welcome to my chocolate factory," says Heyl, owner of Moore's Candies, who grew up in that same Baltimore cottage where confections are churned out for the company's retail store in Bel Air and for commercial customers. "Even adults come here and feel like kids in a candy store.

Roald Dahl's great 1964 kids' book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory recognizes the cracked sanctity of candy-making. Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp), the world's greatest chocolatier, makes candy for candy's sake as Matisse made art for art's sake. He demands that it tastes delicious in new and stimulating ways. What's equally wonderful and hilarious about the story is that Wonka's juvenile soul mate isn't a connoisseur or a collector. He's just a poor boy named Charlie (Freddie Highmore), who has a good heart, a sensible head and (it turns out)

Before the first crisp chapter of "Matilda" is done with, Roald Dahl, who died Friday from an undisclosed infection at age 74, has skewered doting parents and parents who are just the opposite. Of the former, Dahl sneers, "It's a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful."And then there are those -- even worse, he says -- who treat their children like scabs: "A scab is something you have to put up with until the time comes when you can pick if off and flick it away."

In many ways, 2003 was a dynamic and perplexing year. For me. I'll spare you the details of my personal drama, which contributed to my confusion about such things as love (I'm learning it's both draining and replenishing) and spirituality (feels like love to me). Fortunately, the good, incredible stuff outweighed the melancholic issues. So as always, I was abundantly blessed. Got a lot to be thankful for. I guess you can say the same about pop in 2003: We were blessed with some great songs (Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" and OutKast's "Hey Ya" were two of the strongest)

Remember when grandpa used to grumble about how a chocolate bar only cost him a few pennies in the good ol' days? Well, hide the latest Godiva Chocolatier catalog, because the poor old guy just might keel over. Chocolate has reached a new extreme of decadence, as illustrated by the 24-Karat Tower with Signature Ribbon, a 7-pound, 4.95-ounce mountain of truffles, chocolates and other confections, priced at an anything-but-modest $250. Have a taste for a richer flavor? How about the new 12-Month Godiva Gift Ensemble, for $350?
