Tango music will be accompanied by the aroma of salsa and coffee in the Media Center of Clarksville Middle School today. Seventh-graders will culminate their study of Latin America cultures with a daylong fiesta. Children in the Gifted and Talented Program's social studies class of Emily Savopoulos have prepared booths that celebrate subjects from Aztec floating gardens to dance to Carnival, which is held annually in Rio de Janeiro. More serious topics include the Colombian drug cartel and children of poverty.

Arguably, there have been few springs in recent memory when many of us haven't planned to wring every bit of hedonistic pleasure from every holiday. The folks at La Palapa Grill & Cantina on Main Street in Ellicott City plan to cater to pleasure seekers over a multi-day fiesta built around Mexico's Independence Day, aka Cinco de Mayo. Truth is, this particular Mexican restaurant has been hosting a continuous fiesta since it opened in 1999, joining its older sibling, Clarksville's El Azteca, and preceding its younger sisters in North Laurel, Silver Spring and Odenton.

Restaurateur Julio Soto will soon launch a third Howard County eatery -- each of which shows off just how yummy “authentic” Mexican cuisine can be. The third, opening at Turf Valley Towne Square in Ellicott City, will be the (twin) sister restaurant of a place called Xitomate Cocina Mexicana & Tequila Bar, which opened in January 2013 in Columbia. And that year-old cucina is a younger cousin of Azul 17 on Snowden River Parkway, in Columbia, which is more a special-occasion type place than its younger relatives.

"Code to Zero," by Ken Follett. Dutton. 368 pages. $26.95. The engine of any Ken Follett thriller is plot, cruising on the clean fuel of direct, uncluttered writing. "Code to Zero," his latest, follows this familiar flight plan to the letter, moving briskly toward a down-to-the wire climax while stretching but never breaching the barriers of disbelief. Follett often sets his novels in the past -- Victorian England, Czarist Russia, Cairo during World War II, to name three -- and this time he takes the reader to Cold War Washington.

The sticky evening air simmered with mariachi music, providing the perfect backdrop to enjoy the salty bite of a margarita. And that was only for starters at "Fiesta Latina 2001," a fund-raiser for Centro de la Comunidad. Many of the 200 guests browsed the buffet at Lista's Restaurant and danced up a storm to the Latin beat of Grupo Latino Continental -- both activities again requiring further margarita reinforcements for many of the participants. Among those at the party: Lilian Laszlo, event chair; Nancy Alexandrou, event committee member; Dr. Leonardo R. Ortega, Centro de la Comunidad board president; Dr. Magaly Rodriguez de Bittner, Antonio Salazar, Dr. Sonia Fierro-Luperini and Hector Torres, board members; Carmen Nieves, Centro de la Comunidad executive director; Jane Harrison, Abell Foundation senior program officer; Angelo Solera, Baltimore Health Department Hispanic community liaison; Ana Bertrando, Career Communications Group Inc. conference coordinator; Mario Armstrong, Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development IT manager; Bill Stagg, Prince George's County Hispanic Advisory Committee chair; Albert Smink, ARTEX Inc. safety manager; Vincent Talarico, retired General Electric vice president; Dr. Christos Davatzikos, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine professor of radiology; Wendy Senft and Sue Glick, English as a second language teachers; Susana Ptak, I.H.

Federico Lopez is proud of the food of his hometown. That town, Mexico City, should be proud of him, too. With his wife, Maria, Lopez owns Fiesta Mexicana, a tiny, friendly Rosedale restaurant dedicated to cooking authentic Mexico City cuisine. As the capital of Mexico and the country's largest city, Mexico City draws culinary inspiration from the entire country. The resulting cuisine feels familiar to the American palate, but fresh. Diners will recognize the tortilla-plus-meat-and-sauce concoctions on their plates; it looks similar to the food at any run-of-the-mill Mexican place in America.

The Prince George's CountyDepartment of Corrections celebrated Hispanic Heritage MonthFriday with motivational bilingual speeches from outreach ministries, Latin music and dance. For many of the inmates, it was not only a chance to break the monotony of their prison sentence, but to feel connected to other Latinos in and outside of the jail walls. "It illuminates the fact that we're from different countries, but we're all brothers and sisters," said Bryant Jones, 24. Jones was born in Panama and attended a bilingual school in Clayton, near the Panama Canal.

Logical decision Chris Dufresne Los Angeles Times You could argue the Fiesta Bowl, based on financial skullduggery and malfeasance, deserved to be dropped from the BCS rotation. Everything considered, letting it remain was the logical move. Revoking the Fiesta's lamp shade license would have had severe economic impact on the Phoenix area that had nothing to do with the actions of a few. The Fiesta impressed the BCS panel with other acts of contrition.
