THE LUXURY of spending months traveling to countries around the world is something that most of us only dream about. Corky, the Carroll County library mascot, has done just that.Traveling since summer as part of the Summer Reading Program, Corky visited Europe, the Caribbean and other parts of the globe.Unfortunately, Corky is a stuffed penguin and can't tell us about England, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, Nepal and New Zealand -- all places where willing volunteers hauled the mascot.Maria Toomey, branch children's librarian, came up with the idea.

"What I Lived For" is a novel that, by its own bravado and conceits, first soars and then plummets. I was utterly taken by the first hundred pages, only to yearn for the book to come to a merciful conclusion. This was one frustrating book.It is a novel about an Irish-American pol in upstate New York named Jerome "Corky" Corcoran. When Corky was 11 -- "a scrawny undersized kid" -- his father was gunned down at the doorstep of their posh home on Christmas Eve, 1959.Tim Corcoran had been a brawling, blustering owner of a construction business in Union City, a heavily ethnic industrial city that sounds a lot like Buffalo.

DEAR daughter,It's hard to believe that in only a few days you will be among the hundreds of young men and women in Howard County who will receive their diplomas as high school graduates.As you walk across the stage at Merriweather Post Pavilion, I know my thoughts will travel back to that first walk you made, across the living room floor to your pop. At 9 months old, your gait was steady. You exhibited the confidence that I have now come to expect from you.Pulled up stakesI know that hasn't always been easy.

In its 150-year history, the town of Blaine, Mo., has managed precisely two accomplishments. First, Blaine became the "Stool Capital of the World." Second, Blaine was the first site on Earth to be visited by a UFO, an event that led to a community potluck dinner aboard a space ship.Blainites do not regard these happenings ironically but with reverence. Their faces convey the uncritical blankness of Dr. Seuss characters. Blainites are not exactly well-endowed in the intellect department.And that makes them easy pickings for Christopher Guest, one of the creators of the brilliant 1983 "rockumentary" "This Is Spinal Tap," who now turns his satiric camera onto phlegmatic Blaine.
