The four black orbs — dark-tinted security cameras — watch silently overhead in a room filled with stainless-steel pipes. The pipes carry raw milk from four large holding tanks outside the building into two large metal cabinets that look like oversized car radiators. This is one of the critical points in Cloverland Dairy's production process, where raw milk is pasteurized — heated well above 161 degrees Fahrenheit — and then pumped through pipes into other parts of the Baltimore plant for processing and packaging.

Marty Giggard says it is bad enough that she has to live with noisy cars and rambunctious youths who congregate at the telephone booth at the Royal Farms convenience store on Fort Smallwood Road in Pasadena.She fears things may get worse if Royal Farms gets permission to convert part of its store in the Sunset Beach neighborhood into a self-service gasoline station."It's mostly the fumes from the gas that's going to bother me," Giggard said. "It's a health hazard."Baltimore-based Cloverland Farms Dairy Inc., which owns Royal Farms, has asked Robert C. Wilcox, the county's administrative hearing officer, to grant the company a special exception to enable it to add a two-pump island that could serve four cars at a time.

When it comes to eggnog, I have a narrow standard. There is my homemade nog, and then there is every other nog. Mine calls for a mountain of sugar, a river of raw egg yolks, a torrent of bourbon and a deluge of whipping cream. It is not politically correct or nutritionally correct. Because it uses raw egg yolks - thereby exposing imbibers to a small risk of salmonella - many dietitians consider it forbidden fare, especially for anyone with a weak immune system. (You can, I am told, substitute pasteurized eggs.

An old photograph captures Jim DeWald in an instant of youthful exuberance and utter futility. He's No. 50 for Poly, chasing the quarterback from City College named Kurt Schmoke. DeWald will never get near him. It's Thanksgiving Day 1966, and history says City's on its way to a 42-6 victory."I'm forever immortalized trying to attain the unattainable," says DeWald, a property administrator. "Trying to catch up to Kurt Schmoke."It couldn't be done then, and DeWald couldn't do it later, aside from a chance meeting on the street about a decade ago, when Schmoke was running for re-election as mayor of Baltimore.
