Havre de Grace -- This evening, fireworks will boom over the water here, frightening some of the smaller children but not the urbane mallard ducks who live along the shoreline.A flotilla of boats, some having left their slips for their only voyage of the season, will have already anchored in the river for the spectacle. The mallards will be out in force too, paying their respects to every vessel and cleaning the water of taco chips and other floating delicacies.As the sun slips down into the woods over beyond the sewage-treatment plant, the mosquitoes and the marine police will come buzzing out after their prey.

No one calls the War of 1812 America's finest hour. But it had its moments. Resentful over treatment by the British and determined to enhance national sovereignty, Henry Clay and a small group of "War Hawks" in the Twelfth Congress pushed an unprepared country into war. There was reason for resentment. For years, Britain, desperate for sailors in its mortal battle with Napoleon, had stopped American ships and impressed their seamen. Though in theory only British subjects were to be seized, an estimated 6,000 Americans were taken between 1803 and 1812.

It was neither the best of years nor the worst of years, but it was a year when area theatergoers were able to see how glorious a grand-scale musical can be when almost everything goes right -- and how disastrous it can be when nearly nothing does.The glorious musical was Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg's retelling of Victor Hugo's epic novel "Les Miserables," which played the longest run in the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre's history -- nine weeks. Rarely has a touring production looked slicker and never, in my memory, has a show seemed more at home in the concrete confines of the Mechanic.

Wouldn't it be nice if before we die, a guardian angel not only notified us of our impending demise, but encouraged us to tie up any emotional loose ends so we could die in peace?That's the basic premise of Robert Leland Taylor's "Those Strange and Glorious Years," the first play in the 16th annual Baltimore Playwrights Festival.As directed by Bob Bardoff at the Spotlighters, it's well-acted -- particularly by lead actors Tony Colavito, as Dennis, the over-worked businessman who is about to kick off, and Belinda Kalinin as his unfaithful young wife, Vera.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom were not highly rated. M-y Thomas Paine, 1776

1999 Kanu Limited Release Kia-Ora Noble Late Harvest, Stellenbosch ($22/375 milliliters). The overall quality of the South African wines I've been tasting lately has been disappointing, but this dessert wine is a glorious exception. It's a deliciously sweet nectar balanced by piercing acidity, offering exceptional intensity and complexity. Flavors include baked oranges, pear, nuts, raisins, honey and caramel. The product of the little-known Harslevelu grape of Hungary, it resembles a hypothetical cross between a Hungarian Tokay and a dessert wine of the Loire.

What a glorious day for Americans! Once health care reform is enacted into law, the U.S. can once again hold its head up among the world's democratic nations, all of whom have been enjoying the blessings of universal health care for decades. We can then show the world that in fact we do care about the 40 million of our fellow citizens who, because of poverty, illness or unemployment must live without health care coverage. I believe no other civilized nation would have tolerated such a scandalous and shameful record of neglect for as long as we have.

We asked Marylanders to describe what Barack Obama's inauguration meant to them. Here are some of their responses: This glorious election As I sat in my apartment at Bowie State University, watching the election results, as my heart pounded, I continued to wait with anticipation and then the first black president was elected. Students all across campus ran out of their rooms into the center of campus screaming, crying, chanting Obama, Obama, Obama. The way people came together in this glorious election let me know that it's a new day. To me this inauguration means hope for the future and the rest of the world.

M ichael Phelps, you've won another medal. Created by acclaimed Austrian artist Franz West, it's in a vault at the Baltimore Museum of Art. That's the good news. The bad: It's a turquoise Plasticine disc the size of a salad plate, with lumpy, pink, vaguely hemorrhoidal blobs on both sides. Which isn't to say the piece doesn't rank up there with other works by West, whose first American retrospective is on display at the BMA. West is all about blobs and body parts and bubble-gum pink, and for some reason, people who know a whole lot about art seem to like that.

With a background in urban search and rescue, Jenny Shilling figured she was a logical choice to take part in the county Department of Fire and Rescue Services' recent mission to aid the people of hurricane-ravaged Louisiana. Members of the unit - known as USAR - are trained in finding and extricating disaster victims. After making the 26-hour trip to rural Alexandria, Shilling and the other four members of the second relief unit sent in September by the Department of Fire and Rescue Services immediately worked an 18-hour shift.

Jen Parks hopes there are six weeks left in the Broadneck field hockey team's season. That would mean, in addition to plenty of important regular-season games and a possible county championship, the Bruins would be in the hunt for the Class 4A state championship. In other words, there really shouldn't be any time to dwell on the outcome of any regular-season game. But nothing about Broadneck's 2-1 win over Severna Park in overtime Thursday was regular, and Parks, the Bruins' coach, wasn't about to let the moment fade from memory without letting her team revel in it.

Someone has "planted" some blue plastic flowers around a tree on Lauretta Avenue, perhaps the last vestige of the kind of loving care that this old street once received. For the most part, though, the families that used to polish their rowhouses' marble steps and the kids who used to skate down safe and narrow streets have long since moved away. But next month, they'll get back together for a picnic. They'll eat; they'll catch up; they'll remember the old West Baltimore neighborhood that many of them left more than 30 years ago. They just won't be going anywhere near it. "Oh, no!"

Gov. Martin O'Malley is on the cover of next month's Irish America magazine, which was throwing a dinner in his honor last night at the New York Yacht Club. Let's just say that Patricia Harty, editor-in-chief and co-founder of the 23-year-old publication, is a fan. "Martin O'Malley is easy on the eye - very easy on the eye," Harty begins her piece. "He's handsome, young, and he's got talent. He paid his way through college playing music - Irish music. ... He's an orator in the truest sense.
