* Item: Durkee Flavor'N Bag* What you get: 4 to 6 servings* Cost: About $2* Preparation time: 5 to 45 minutes microwave, 20 to 90 minutes conventional oven* Review: These simple Durkee kits offer home cooking without any messy pans. The envelopes of pre-mixed seasonings include instructions on what ingredients to add and how long to cook the food. When the meal is over, the bag goes in the trash. Durkee's bag mixes cover entrees from meatloaf to pork chops to fish. We tried Barbecue Spareribs, Lemon Butter Fish and Sweet & Sour Chicken, and found them all tasty.

Southern continued its amazing run toward a Maryland Scholastic Hockey League title last night, defeating Atholton, 4-2, in a league semifinal at Wells Ice Rink in College Park. The Bulldogs (8-3-1) advance to today's public school final, where they will meet Montgomery County's Sherwood, a 5-2 winner over Walkersville in the other semifinal. The championship will be played at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel at 4 p.m. Rob Durkee, a freshman, paced the Bulldogs with two goals. Of all the obstacles that the Bulldogs had to overcome, the biggest might have come from an unexpected source: referee John Niceli.

DR. MICHAEL Newdow, find a young woman by the name of MaryKait Durkee. Maybe she can give you some much needed lessons on what to do about the Pledge of Allegiance. Durkee was only 15 when, in 1998, she caused a storm of controversy by refusing to stand and say the pledge at a school some 50 miles from San Diego. Durkee said she didn't believe in God, felt the U.S. government was corrupt and her country too violent. That sounds like the very description of a nation that has lost touch with God, but never mind.

It's tempting to dismiss MaryKait Durkee as just another wacky Californian, but the truth is the lass may be on to something.Durkee is the Fallbrook Union High School girl who refuses to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. The American Civil Liberties Union has hopped into the fray, filing a lawsuit that would compel officials at the school some 50 miles from San Diego to let Durkee sit quietly while other students recite the pledge.Apparently leaving the girl alone in the first place never occurred to school officials.
