Ice and snow pulled the rain gutter off one side of our roof after the heavy snow we had recently. What can be done to prevent a recurrence? Quite a few houses lost gutters to the recent ice and snow. A slate-roofer friend tells me he is swamped with gutter repair calls. Most fallen gutters are brought down by the weight of ice that accumulates in them and above them. Extended periods of freezing temperatures while roofs are snow covered is a formula for heavy ice build-up - snow melts off relatively warm roof surfaces, then refreezes when it reaches the gutters and eaves.

THE STEREOTYPICAL images of black women from enslavement to the present -- the loving and bossy mammy, the cute little pickaninny, the tragic mulatto -- are embodied in the strong satirical piece, "Honey Chil' Milk," currently engaging the talents of seven singular Baltimoreans.Playing at the Theatre Project through Sunday, the series of broadly humorous vignettes based on painful racial experience was created by choreographer and dancer Donald Byrd and the cast of five black actresses and two white male performers.

Hershey coach Mike Eaves said he wouldn't want to see the Skipjacks on his schedule every night, but games between the arch-rivals played in multiple strings, like tonight's at the Arena (7:30, WLIF-AM 1300), don't bother him a bit."They are always a tough team to beat, but it seems like we play up to the level of competition," said Eaves, whose team is 10-12-5 against the rest of the league but 4-4 against the Jacks and 2-2 here. "My guys really get up for these games and put out a little extra."

It's the middle of February, and for those of us with cabin fever, the thought of spring and its blooming flowers are all that keep us going. From now until the time we can put our hands in the garden dirt and plant the first primroses or pansies, many of us are dreaming about sunny days spent outdoors.Members of the Eaves family of Sunnybank Farm don't have to wait -- they're already working around the clock in 13 greenhouses, cultivating thousands of geraniums, pansies, impatiens, market packs of annuals of all kinds, and countless perennials.

For the Skipjacks' Reggie Savage, the only thing better than being good is being good and lucky.Such was the case last night when Savage's goal at 2:31 of overtime gave the Skipjacks a 2-1 victory over the Hershey Bears at the Baltimore Arena."

In Chaucer's wood, the branches bud with birds.Song showers fill the air.Each little heart, no bigger than a corn,with diminutive lust is stirredfor on this date,the legends say, each birdwill surely find its mate.Now windswept parking lots are bare.Under eaves, small birds cluster,vociferous in the drug store's neon light.They mustseem choir to pilgrims come to venerate,in shrines of scent and powder and paint,the candy heart of the old red satin saint.Pub Date: 2/14/97@
