The trout are biting, the woodchucks are out in droves and we have the annual Early Bird Fishing Tournament under our belts. It must be spring in Carroll County!Reasonable weather, which isn't always a sure thing when the Early Bird Fishing Tournament holds court each year at Piney Run Park, helped pull anglers from around the area to participate this popular event.The top prize winner was Robert Nichell's 17.75-pound, 37 1/8 -inch striped bass, which netted him $700 in prize money. Nichell's fish was caught from a boat, but Patrick Heilman's 14-inch, 1.46-pound catfish (worth $600)

The United Way of Central Maryland expects to begin its campaign Sept. 3 with about 10 percent of its goal pledged, compared with 5 percent last year, because of heavier than usual summertime fund raising.So far, 76 "Early Bird" companies have begun drives, triple the number last summer, said Leigh Ann Ruggles, manager of the summer drive. Last year, the 24 that started early raised $1.6 million."This has a ripple effect," Ruggles said. "Not only will we raise much more money this summer -- four companies didn't give at all last year -- we'll be able to inform other companies in the fall about the successful practices of these early companies."

It was 650 hardy and hopeful fishermen against the fish, and for themost part, the fish won. And a few anglers inadvertently joined themin the drink.That's how things went at the 10th annual Early Bird Fishing Tournament at Piney Run Reservoir last Sunday. A few anglers walked away with a lot of money, but most departed chilled, withoutany fish, and some were wet.Without a doubt it was the worst weather for fishing in the competition's history. Northwest winds whipped across the 300-acre lake with gusts topping 30 knots, forcing most contestants to call it quits in midday.

The United States (A) will (B) probably will or (C) might defend Taiwan against attack, depending on which presidential interview you read. The burden on taxpayers will increase and services to them decrease as proof of the city's revitalization. Paleontologists found a feathered fossil in China and can't decide whether it was an early bird or dinosaur in drag. The Frederick Madam is an American success story.

Tax season is officially here, with the Internal Revenue Service and state of Maryland starting Tuesday to accept electronically filed returns. This is a good year for procrastinators. April 15 — the traditional due date for returns — falls on a Sunday and the following Monday is Emancipation Day, a holiday celebrated in Washington. This pushes the deadline to April 17. But this is also a leap year, so Feb. 29 gives us one more day to ponder our taxes. Many filers could use the extra time.

Wednesday  when I was housecleaning, the phone rang. It was a woman from Meadowbrook   thinking my name was something different, but she had the right membership number. She’d called to say I’d paid my membership fee for next winter, but not for this summer.   I didn’t believe her. I always take advantage of the “early bird” special. I’ve done it for years, even decades. I pay the twice-yearly membership fee for swimming at Meadowbrook months in advance to save a little.

The Ravens have the No. 26 pick in the NFL draft April 25, which isn't enviable, but Eric DeCosta, the team's director of player personnel, wouldn't mind being in that spot every year. A low position in the first round is an indication of success the previous season. The Ravens also like to point out that the last time they were in this position, they selected a middle linebacker out of the University of Miami named Ray Lewis in 1996. The rest is Hall of Fame history. "I don't know if there has ever been a No. 26 pick in the history of the league as good as Ray Lewis," DeCosta said Wednesday.

The sun wasn't up and the streets were empty when I left the house. Dundalk Joe was waiting in a car parked by the corner, and I hopped in. It was just after 6 a.m., and we were a little giddy from anticipation and lack of sleep. Our destination? Hogan's Alley, an old-school South Baltimore bar on Fort Avenue. The early-morning bar hop had begun. There are more than a few bars around town that close at 2 a.m. and reopen at 6 a.m. But who starts drinking before the sun comes up? Alcoholics?

Scholastic Corp., the distributor of the Harry Potter books in the United States, said yesterday that it will take legal action against two Illinois companies that sold and shipped copies of the final novel in the series to some customers several days before the book's scheduled worldwide release date. Scholastic, based in New York, said in a prepared statement that Chicago-based book distributor Levy Home Entertainment and seller DeepDiscount.com in Itasca, Ill., violated an agreement to hold back copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows until 12:01 a.m. Saturday.

Some ran. Others walked briskly, carrying boxes or pushing carts. All of them headed like guided missiles for tables and tables covered with books - 45,000 of them, by one estimate. "It's the thrill of the hunt," said Catherine Lawrence, a bookseller from Harrisburg, Pa., who paid her $10 to be one of the first through the door yesterday for the annual Smith College Club of Baltimore book sale at the state fairgrounds in Timonium. "Yet there's enough for everyone to be satisfied." The annual book sale is a fundraiser for an endowment fund at Smith College, a liberal arts school for women in Northampton, Mass.
