Actor David Adkins likes to climb mountains, but theater is a mountain he was once hesitant to scale.Although the former Marylander displayed a gift for acting as a student at McDonogh School, he says that, after he graduated, "I put theater behind me."Now, however, Adkins has been a full-time actor for a decade, and when Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband" opens at Center Stage tonight, he will be making his first professional appearance in his home state.His character, Lord Goring, was the playwright's alter ego in this 1894 political comedy revolving around a politician with an immaculate reputation, Sir Robert Chiltern, whose marriage and career are suddenly threatened by a revelation from his past.

Jeanne T. Dandy received three standing ovations from a crowd of Baltimore police commanders and civilian employees last week for a longevity record that even Cal Ripken Jr. would envy. While most of those being honored were celebrating 20 or 30 years on the force, the central records unit clerk was marking her 50th year with the Baltimore Police Department. "It's remarkable," said Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris, who bestowed the title of honorary police officer on Dandy during the ceremony Friday.

Walter Dandy was not a typical kid. On the high school football team, he once scored for the opponent. In college, he was excused from Spanish class, so hapless were his language skills. And then there were the flashes -- an explosion of an idea, fully crystallized.These are the epiphanies of inventor Walter Edward Dandy III of Baltimore, whose grandfather designed the protective baseball helmet and whose forebears created Ellicott City out of 18th-century wilderness.Mr. Dandy's latest innovation is called "Constant-Force Articulated Dynamic Struts," or CADS.

After the gruesome failure of the first attempt in history to separate adult twins joined at the head, Dr. Benjamin S. Carson insisted that the effort was not in vain. The doctors learned valuable lessons from the fatal surgery on Ladan and Laleh Bijani in Singapore, Carson said: that adult brains cleave tightly together; that blood rerouted from a shared vessel may find its own path; that operating in two or more stages separated by weeks might be safer. "I felt there were some very significant things to take away from this," said Carson, a Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon.

Walter Dandy likes to walk among the yellow lady-slipper, the showy orchis and the whorled pogonia on his property near Monkton, and he is paying a price to keep his property hospitable to the wildflowers forever.Mr. Dandy, his wife, Anne, and five other landowners in the area have given perpetual conservation easements to the Maryland Environmental Trust, a state agency. The easements mean the properties never can be subdivided and developed. As a consequence, the resale value falls sharply.

These days we're often told that stars become stars after a role defines them - as hard guy, swashbuckler or romantic leading man - and that audiences accept them only in variations on that role. But the career of James Cagney, the most protean acting talent in the first three decades of talking pictures, obliterates that conventional wisdom. What drew audiences to him was the way he made acting seem like a form of controlled euphoria.

The small fruit of the towering date palm tree grows in large bunches of more than 20 pounds, with up to 1,000 dates per bunch. According to The Oxford Companion to Food, by Alan Davidson, dates are originally from North Africa and the Middle East, but most dates sold in the United States are grown in California, where they flourish in very hot, desert conditions. The fruit is 1 to 2 inches long, thin-skinned, with a soft, yielding, very sweet flesh wrapped around a long, narrow pit. Dates have a high sugar content, making them a good source of energy with no fat. They also provide some fiber, protein and vitamin A, and a good bit of potassium.

Sad to say, the decreasing fall temperatures means fewer days of going without socks. But while toes will no longer be wiggling free, there's nothing to say that they can't be contented. Ullfrotte Original, a Swedish company, makes terrific socks out of merino wool terry cloth. The 200-gram socks are perfect for everyday wear. This year, I took just four pairs to get me through a three-week assignment in northern Italy for the Winter Olympics. After a sink washing, they were ready - and fluffy - to wear the next day. For alpine skiing and sliding events, I wore the 600-gram variety and my feet stayed toasty.

Bernardini will not be overlooked again. The 3-year-colt outclassed the field in the $500,000 Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. yesterday, proving that his victory in the Preakness Stakes was no fluke. "There was a lot of doubt in people's minds about the Preakness," winning trainer Tom Albertrani said. "Today, he showed us what a really good horse he is." Albertrani has been raving about Bernardini ever since the colt's 5 1/4 -victory in the May 20 Preakness, a race that will be remembered as the one in which Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro shattered his right hind leg. Bernardini, with jockey Javier Castellano, took the lead around the first turn and was never challenged by Minister's Bid or Sunriver.

Under all the lace and velvet, sturdy tweed and filmy chiffon, fall fashion's modern fantasies of Edwardian dandies, Russian officers and Scottish Highlanders are built on old-fashioned jackets.Romantic is the operative word this season, as international designers ransack archives to revive vintage jacket shapes drawn from across the centuries and across the globe, from the snowy Tyrolean Alps to the misty English hunt country.Blowing the dust off the foppish styles first set in the drawing rooms of late 19th-century London, designers on both sides of the Atlantic dote on dandy looks this season.

Inside every man is a dandy, and every woman would like to see that side of him at least once a year. Why not New Year's Eve? Try formal this time, whether you're staying home or going out.When stepping out, few things exude elegance and confidence like a tuxedo in basic black wool with satin finishing and flat-front trousers.A tuxedo's simplicity brings out the best in a man, and because a tuxedo never goes out of style, investing in one eliminates last-minute scrambling for years to come.

Brenda Walker from Westminster sent in her recipe for Toffee Crunch Bars, which sounded exactly like what Schmidt was looking for. She says that it is a favorite of her college-student daughter and her friends and that it ships very well. This is a great recipe to have in your collection.

The candies were rectangular in shape and wrapped in wax paper that was twisted at the ends. I bought these candies for years but can't find anything similar now." Valerie Lowery of Louisville, Ky., responded. "This referenced request caught my eye as it is near and dear to my heart, being from Louisville, Ky., the birthplace of the Modjeskas, the candy I believe Michelle Pennington is looking for. It is usually placed in the limelight at the time of the Kentucky Derby Festival.
