An article in The Sun Tuesday stated incorrectly that an accident in which three Carroll County children were killed Sunday occurred when the car in which they were riding swerved to avoid a Buick Skylark. In fact, the accident occurred when the car in which the children were riding went out of control on the wet road and sideswiped the Skylark.Russell and Betty Lou Corbett's future looked bright: He had a good job and together they planned to build a spacious home on a shady spot of land in rural Carroll County where they could raise their three children and, maybe, a few horses too.The Corbetts seemed to live the American dream, some say, until it shattered Sunday afternoon when the station wagon they were riding in crashed on a rain-slicked country road -- killing the Corbett children and severely injuring their parents and a teen-age baby sitter.

Editor: A deer was hit on Rock Spring Road between Colgate Road and Delcrest Road in Forest Hill. It lay there for two weeks. It lay in front of a home on a busy residential/commercial strip. It saddens me that when I called the Sheriff's Office, when I said it was being eaten by other animals. I was told that basically that's nature's way. Animals feed off of dead animals. Maybe so, but driving by and seeing the entrails of this small animal was just too much. If it was on a country road, yes, I could understand the logic.

Near a small bridge on a one-lane country road in Parkton, Ann Brunson has hung yellow plastic dinner plates on dozens of trees and bushes. On each plate she has written in black marker, "Save Me." She and the residents along Dunk Freeland Road found out last week that the county plans to widen the bridge and move its path through a portion of Brunson's yard that includes more than two dozen trees and bushes, including a 100-year-old maple. "I was taking a walk and noticed two people surveying the road, so I asked them what they were doing," Brunson said.

At the start of "The Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best," a New York musician loses his girlfriend and his day job, then botches a gig as a singing moose in a kindergarten class. In desperate straits, he partners with an eccentric motormouth performer who relies on kiddie instruments like kazoos. Along with a sassy female rock entrepreneur, they embark on a tour that ends with a battle of the bands in Los Angeles. With a slew of original songs and two lead characters who could take turns in an "I'm With Stupid" T-shirt, "The Brooklyn Brothers" aims for a blend of farce, music and heart.

While traveling alone in Ireland this past June, I happened to snap this photo from the side of the road in County Galway. The weather had been beautiful, but you can see the dark clouds starting to creep up in the picture. Traveling in Ireland does require a certain Zen ability to make the most of the good weather you do get and stoically accept the frequent rains that keep the country green. I always feel a little badly for visitors to the country who get shuttled from one major attraction to another on buses and whose itineraries allow little time for finding the beauty in a clump of wildflowers on the edge of a country road.

A vote against widening road The proposal to add an interchange to Route 295 at Hanover Road in Anne Arundel County, and the accompanying proposal to widen 295 and a portion of Hanover Road, will do nothing more than further deplete the green space of a state watershed and invite office parks and congestion to grow in the last bastion of sustainable development along the loop around BWI Marshall Airport. The widening and development of Hanover Road will result in the displacement of residents, as well as the elimination of 36 acres of forest including "protected" land in the Patapsco Valley State Park.

A driver who tried to beat an oncoming light-rail train Monday night in Lutherville became Baltimore County's third traffic fatality since Friday night, an "unusually" high number in so short a time, police said. Jeremy Gullette, 19, of the first block of Brookfield Garth was traveling eastbound on West Seminary Avenue about 11 p.m. when he came to a Mass Transit Administration light-rail crossing at Railroad Avenue, about a mile from his home. According to witnesses and a preliminary MTA investigation, the crossing gates and warning lights were activated to block the intersection.

CORBETT ROAD in Monkton is the kind of place you visit out of obligation or if you have business in the rural parts of northern Baltimore County. Here all is quiet -- you can see the stars at night and, by day, sheep graze peacefully on gentle slopes.But navigate slowly on this stretch from York Road to Old York Road. Lurking around almost every bend are near-killer potholes, soft-to-nonexistent shoulders and narrow, uneven terrain.Ladies, this is the country road to travel if you're nine months pregnant and want to encourage the onset of labor.

OUR SEMI-RURAL community is dotted with white crosses bearing silent testimony to the treachery of small country roads. Down by the lake there's a white cross, a mile or so up the road there's another one. Now there's a new one in front of our house. It was the usual story: a summer night, young men speeding, alcohol. An eyewitness said the car turned over three times. A 17-year-old died, another was in critical condition for a while. The third -- the driver -- was less seriously injured.

ARECENT moonlit morning, before the lights had come on in most houses, I drove along a stretch of country road that ain't what it used to be. There was a time, maybe 20 years ago, when there was nothing but pasture on either side of the road, and the only buildings you'd see in the moonlight were barns and a single old house on a farm that's not much of a farm anymore. Now there are sprawling ranchers with sprawling lawns dotted with pines planted by the new homeowners. The farmers are mostly gone.

Consistency is more than just a catch word for the South Carroll cross country team. It's practically a way of life. And perhaps no one - or two - best embodies that consistency label than the senior duo of Matt Adami and Bobby Mead, the top two runners for the No. 1 Cavaliers. For more than three seasons, Mead and Adami have been the No. 1 and No. 2 runners, respectively, for South Carroll and have been the key ingredients to the school's back-to-back state championships in 1997 and 1998.

CARTER COUNTY, Ky. -- The battered old trailer that is Shirley Stallard's home sits off a country road near Soldier Creek, a brown rivulet of water that washes both her family and their clothes.There is no electricity in the trailer. There is no running water. Her four children use milk jugs to haul drinking water from neighbors' spigots. They use another neighbor's outhouse just down the gravel road.Mrs. Stallard uses her small propane stove sparingly so she will not soon have to find $7 to refill the stove's fuel bottle.

AT A TIME when Pittsburgh and other well-known "gateway" cities were still nothing more than small settlements, Ellicott City was a gateway to the West, a major stop on America's first east-west interstate, the National Road. President Thomas Jefferson saw the need for the United States to develop its rich resources in the Ohio River valley and beyond. He asked Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin to consider what was needed to make new territories more accessible for settlement and trade.
