For Bryan Voltaggio, this holiday season is about beginnings. His latest restaurant venture - and the first outside Frederick - is slated to open. It will be his family's first Christmas in their new Urbana home. And with a son age 5 and a daughter who's not quite 2, that tender age when he's pretty sure Christmas memories start to truly cement, the chef and father is determined to do it right. No surprise, he'll be making most of it happen in the kitchen - Santa's workshop with cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel and peppermint.

The congregation and leadership of Mountain Christian Church have been exceedingly generous with Anna's House of their time, talent and treasure. Anna's House was recently selected as one of the beneficiaries of the Christmas Eve service special offering and received $12,000 earmarked specifically for client assistance funding to help homeless women and their children reach self-sufficiency. These funds will pay for things not traditionally covered by existing grants such as help with car repairs for clients so they can obtain and maintain employment, camp scholarships and special recreation opportunities for the children, as well as a variety of other individualized needs that arise throughout the year, Torri Dietrich, director of Anna's House, said.

The return of Billy Cundiff was bonus for Ravens fans who watched the kicker contribute to the team's 24-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. But it may also signal the end of Shayne Graham's tenure with the team. Graham was signed to the roster Dec. 21 as Cundiff was hobbled by his sore left calf. Graham converted two field goals and two extra points in the Christmas Eve win against the Cleveland Browns, but coach John Harbaugh said the team would not carry two kickers if Cundiff was healthy.

Christmas is over for another year, and the folks who worked their tails off to create those beautiful services and masses you attended are exhausted. Don't get me wrong, we yearn for a full church and really want you to be there. It would be nice to have extra chairs. It's wonderful to hear the singing of all those people and feel the energy and spirit. There is also the crying and confusion from small children who have no idea what a church is or why they are there and the occasional grumpy look from someone who has been dragged there against their will.

A 24-year-old man who walked into the Laurel police station on Christmas Eve and confessed to a double murder on Long Island, according to police, is being held pending an extradition hearing as early as Tuesday. Jim Collins, a spokesman for the Laurel city police, said Jerry A. Lewis went to the station about 7:40 p.m. Saturday and told officers he had committed the slayings in North Bay Shore, N.Y. The bodies of 21-year-old Shakeela Planter and her 2-year-old son Jaiden Planter had been found in their apartment Friday, though local media reports said they had apparently been killed about five days earlier - the mother stabbed and the son beaten to death.

Someone in Maryland may still be able to claim their biggest Christmas present yet after last night's winning Powerball lottery numbers matched a ticket sold in Cecil County. Carole Everett, the Maryland Lottery's director of communications, said it appears that the nationwide drawing yielded a single winner. The $125 million prize has $78.9 million cash option and would come to $51.87 million after taxes. A winner has yet to come forward, Everett said. "They may not know yet or maybe they're passed out in shock," Everett said.

Nobody doubts the Browns' young defense has had its shining moments. Goal-line stands in Pittsburgh and Arizona the past two games were two of them. But there have been some clunkers that have elicited flashbacks of previous defensive "Seasons From Hell", too. And the first game on Dec. 4 against the Baltimore Ravens, whom the Browns play on Christmas Eve, was the stinkiest egg laid by this group. "It left a bad taste in all of our mouths," said defensive tackle Phil Taylor.

It's Christmas and the song of the season that first pops into my head shouldn't be Elvis Presley crooning "Blue Christmas. " But it is, even though I'm not blue at all. Far from it, but that's the only Christmas song I can think of whenever I drive through downtown Havre de Grace. The only other words that come to mind are: "Attention, Kmart shoppers, the Blue Light Special…" It's Christmas and the song of the season that first pops into my head shouldn't be Elvis Presley crooning "Blue Christmas.
