Tomorrow, Peggy Santiglia Davison will drive to Washington and, not for the first time, watch a lithe young actress in the production of "The Jersey Boys" pretending to be her. Chances are, it will be a joyful experience, though not an entirely comfortable one. Davison, now 65 and a resident of Carroll County, was one of the Angels, the three-member girl group that enjoyed stratospheric popularity for a few years in the early 1960s. The Angels toured the world. They performed on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

THE RELAY for Life event sponsored by the American Cancer Society and held last month in Linthicum was a big success. Hundreds of area residents gathered at Lindale Middle School for the overnight event that celebrated cancer survivors and raised money to find a cure. Forty-one teams raised $88,000. "We really thank the Linthicum community for coming out and being so generous for this event," said Susan Bauman Stuart, regional vice president of the American Cancer Society. The event began with a reception for cancer survivors sponsored by North Arundel Hospital, which included welcoming words and details about the hospital's cancer center from Dr. Russell DeLuca, and inspirational words from breast cancer survivor Pat Anastase.

Anna M. Susie, a former tap-dancer who performed at the Hippodrome Theatre during the 1930s and later worked for the Archdiocese of Baltimore at the Catholic Center, died Saturday of heart failure at St. Martin's Home in Catonsville. She was 89. Anna Marie Witt, the youngest of seven, was born and raised on Eastern Avenue near Patterson Park. Her father, a German immigrant, died when she was 4, and a decade later, she left school to help support her family when she took a job as a seamstress at I.C. Isaacs in Baltimore's garment district.

With "Touch My Body" topping Billboard's Hot 100 as of Wednesday, Mariah Carey's career total of No. 1 singles has hit 18, one more than Elvis Presley. You'd think Western civilization had collapsed overnight. My advice? Get over it. I grew up loving Presley's music. I was born the same year he first set foot in Sam Phillips' Sun studio in Memphis, Tenn., and my first memory of music is that of a teenage neighbor belting out "You ain't nothin' but a hound dog!" in 1956, when I was 3. But this brouhaha?

Goodbye." It's a simple word, but sometimes it's just hard to say. OK, well maybe it's easy to say and hard to, you know, stick with it. That has been Brett Favre's problem. He has come so close to saying goodbye so many, many times. Then, in March, he did say it. There were tears and everything. But we all know what has happened since. Today, he'll be there when the Packers resume training camp. But before we accuse ol' Brett of an acute case of vacillation, let's point out that he's hardly alone.

A little bit of Italy rolled through downtown Baltimore yesterday as the city celebrated its 114th consecutive Columbus Day parade with the steady beat of marching bands, floating restaurants, fancy cars and perfect weather. Savoring brilliant sunshine and summerlike temperatures, spectators by the hundreds cheered and clapped as nearly 90 groups walked, marched or drove in the procession from the Washington Monument in Mount Vernon to Central Avenue in Little Italy. "This is the best day we've had in years," said Thomas J. Iacoboni, organizer of the parade culminating several Columbus-themed events that began weeks ago. "The idea is to get people to Little Italy."

Remember how some people went bonkers last week to get 3-cent stamps to go with their leftover 29-cent stamps to meet the new 32-cent price for first-class postage? Long lines were reported all over. Now I hear that people bought so many sheets of 3-cent stamps they're back this week looking for more 29s.Jake's brainchildI'm getting some good buzz from musicheads in the Annapolis-College Park-Baltimore triangle about WRNR-FM (103.1), the progressive free-form rock station that is the brainchild of Jake Einstein, at 77 "the oldest hippie in America" and the man who enjoyed the status of radio cult god as creator of the old WHFS.

A revolving rooftop restaurant in downtown Baltimore introduced Leonora DiPietro to waitressing more than 45 years ago. The stations, where staff picked up drinks and entrees, rotated constantly, too, which was too much for the new employee. She had locked herself in a linen closet to cry in frustration when her manager found her and spent the rest of the evening schooling her in the trade that would become her career. Over the decades, she has served celebrities, politicians, sports figures and next-door neighbors, all of whom know her as Peachy, the nickname the parish priest gave a bubbly little girl with rosy cheeks.

The national touring production of "Come Fly Away," Twyla Tharp's sensual ballet/musical set to the songs of Frank Sinatra, breezes through Baltimore this week. One of the featured dancers in the show will look very much at home on the stage of the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric. Ashley Blair Fitzgerald, who grew up in Ellicott City, had only recently left home when she first danced in that theater nine years ago, appearing in the tour of "Fosse," a showcase of Bob Fosse's choreography.

This is not an obituary for the Merriweather Post Pavilion. Columbia's woodsy amphitheater - host to every major act (well, not Springsteen or the Stones) - ends its season today with an Incubus concert. We refuse to allow Merriweather to end on that note. The Rouse Co. wants to sell the 37-year-old venue to Howard County as an enclosed theater. Merriweather's management wants the pavilion to remain an open-air venue, and has a contract allowing it to book acts for one more season. But after that, the pavilion's future is up in the air. Its past, however, is rock solid.
