Festival Foods is opening today in Hampstead after opposition from residents and technicalities in the town's zoning ordinances threatened to keep the new supermarket from becoming a reality.Still pending in Carroll County Circuit Court are lawsuits questioning the Board of Zoning Appeals' site plan approval and changes in Hampstead's zoning ordinance that paved the way for the 42,716-square-foot store and adjoining 13,800 square feet of retail space.Asked what Festival's owners would do if courts determined that the decision and ordinance were not valid, Hampstead Town Manager John A. Riley could only laugh, "I don't know what would happen."

Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities in the region for all of the above. Here are a few: Maryland Autumn Glory Festival You might have been to Garrett County in summer to swim in Deep Creek Lake and in winter to ski at Wisp, but maybe you haven't yet experienced it in fall.

I'M NOT SURE when, exactly, my home town began to metamorphose into an exurb. Some might say it was the day McDonald's threw up the golden arches on Route 30. Or, perhaps, when developer Martin K. Hill bought a field just outside the Hampstead town limits. An old friend thinks the change began when the H.R. Lippy penny-candy shop went out of business.My own theory is that Hampstead the exurb was born the day somebody at the Carroll County Board of Education decided to shut down the old two-story brick elementary school on Main Street and build a new one on the outskirts.

On weekdays, Emmanuel Tabi is a caring licensed nurse practitioner. But yesterday, during an afternoon soccer match, he violently slid into an opponent, folding him to the ground and releasing a plume of dust from the burnt grass. Baltimore's annual International Festival includes a World Cup-style soccer tournament in its mix of reggae, blues, pad Thai, jerk chicken, martial arts demonstrations and Ms. Ida the Yodeling Lady. The event's theme is "Celebrating One Baltimore." But you wouldn't know that by watching the soccer field.

The two-day Maryland Wine Festival in Westminster had the look and feel of a gigantic family reunion.Thousands of people attended -- nearly 10,000 Saturday and perhaps a greater number yesterday -- but the ambience was relaxed, unhurried, almost intimate.There was wine -- nine vendors in nine tents -- but it was almost a sideline at what has become a family affair for people of all ages.People strolled barefoot yesterday, wine glasses in hand, looking at the crafts displayed and sold in 40 tents scattered throughout the 140-acre farm museum property.
