If it's dinner time and Martha Stauss wants a salad, she doesn't run to the store. She strolls through her Lauraville yard or nearby Herring Run Park and picks wild lettuces, dandelion greens and other free salad fixings. Depending on what time of year it is, she also might gather garlic mustard (which she uses to make pesto), black walnuts and hazelnuts, wild grapes, persimmons, pawpaws and all sorts of berries, including blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and mulberries. "I don't have to pay money for it, it doesn't have to travel long distances, and they're good," she said.

If you'd like to spend an afternoon absorbing the rustic, historic and uncommonly lovely phenomenon that is a covered bridge in autumn, you do not have far to go. Pennsylvania, with more than 200 covered bridges, has the most remaining of any state in the union; Lancaster County, with 29, has the largest concentration in Pennsylvania. What, did you think you had to go to Iowa? Madison County, Iowa, became famous for its covered bridges when Robert James Waller set his 1992 novel, The Bridges of Madison County, there, and the 1995 Clint Eastwood / Meryl Streep movie was filmed on location.

Norm Duke is finding out that being the 1994 Professional Bowlers Association Player of the Year entails more than just getting his likeness on the cover of this year's PBA media guide.Because of his status, Duke is obligated to attend various PBA functions. Moreover, he has become the player everyone wants to talk to.Yesterday, for example, Duke -- who is in town to compete in the Greater Baltimore Open -- sandwiched his practice session at Country Club Lanes between interviews and photo shoots with the national and local media.

Kerri Strug, who went from relative unknown to Olympic hero by helping the U.S. women's gymnastics team to a gold medal last month in Atlanta despite competing on a badly sprained ankle, will not be part of the team's post-Olympic tour this fall. But it's not because of the injury.While her six Olympic teammates will begin a 34-show tour later this month that will stop at USAir Arena on Oct. 13, Strug will be the star attraction of what originally had been a tour of Russian gymnasts that will include a show at the Baltimore Arena in late October or early November.

This fall, walk inn-to-inn through New England.Whether the trail takes you through woods swept with fairy-tale reds and oranges, into a canyon cut by streams and waterfalls, or along a rocky coastline marked by sea caves, walking lets you experience the landscape as no other vacation can.On most of the trips, an experienced guide leads you, but some tour companies will give you a map and route and arrange your lodgings.On a walking tour, instead of driving through a national park or a state forest or simply looking at the seacoast from your bus window, you move through the landscape.
