A conversation with a colleague prompted me to draw an important distinction in long-form journalism between the thumbsucker and the goat-choker. The thumbsucker, long a journalistic staple, is the article that tells you What It's All About. Thumbsuckers flourish on Sundays, because Saturdays are generally slow news days and the increased space of Sunday editions is an open invitation to pontificate about the how and why and what next of some development during the week.

This well-rounded, youthful white wine may not reach the pinnacles of complexity, but it's an excellent value for under $10. And it's a lot of fun. This Rhone-style blend of white grenache, viognier and marsanne is a dry wine but very fruity, with flavors of pear and strawberry and citrus. (The name is a pun on Cotes du Rhone, but some French vintners don't see the humor.) 2009 Goats do Roam White From: South Africa Price: $9 Serve with: Full-bodied fish, Asian cuisine

A runaway goat that sparked a school closure, rammed a car, leaped several fences to evade apprehension and triggered plenty of buzz in the Sykesville area for nearly a week has been captured and is resting comfortably at an animal shelter in Westminster. Nicky Ratliff, executive director of the Humane Society of Carroll County, said an animal control officer found and subdued the goat - a 100-pound ram with black fur, brown horns and symmetrical white markings on his face - late Thursday afternoon after a resident called in to report a sighting.

For the children visiting the Pearlstone Center's sustainable farm Sunday, the chickens and baby goats might have been the main event. But supporters of the Family Farm Day said they hope that interaction will be the start of a deeper connection with faith and the environment. "It touches something deeper than themselves," said Sharon Goldman Wallach, 38, who attended the day with her father and two young daughters. "It's a double hit. " The Pearlstone Center event was one of the kickoff activities for Baltimore Green Week, a weeklong affair launched in 2004 as part of a Struever Bros.

Would someone explain to me, why during the week, we have to have three hours of news on the local stations? All during these broadcasts, all the information given is the same, especially the weather. The weather is given every 10 minutes. Also, on Feb. 18 in Rome, Baltimore ArchbishopEdwin O'Brienwas elevated to cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI. On the following day, however, only a small picture of Cardinal O'Brien receiving his red biretta from the Holy Father. Yet, in the same edition, there's a lengthy article on whether goats can be kept as pets ("Do goats suffer from discrimination?"

Perhaps a herd of goats will help Gibson Islanders solve a mystery that was created when an ancient tulip poplar that blew over six years ago during Tropical Storm Isabel revealed several handmade bricks in its extensively tangled root ball. Earlier this year, a Gibson Islander out for a stroll with his dog was greeted with a present of a handmade brick when his dog exited the thick underbrush. A quick glance and the passer-by realized that it wasn't a typical run-of-the-mill Home Depot brick; it turns out it harks back to the 18th century.

PUT YOURSELF IN Cathy and Rodney Holden's place -- but hold your nose while you're doing it. Picture yourself at their new house, on Oella Avenue off Frederick Road, where they saved all their money, and sacrificed convenience, and finally built this lovely split level brick home to raise their two daughters.And now they all have to share it -- with goats.This is not what they had in mind -- not in all the years the Holdens were saving their money, not in those 15 months Rodney Holden was building the house in Oella, not in those months when the family lived in a trailer to save money while Rodney finished construction.

In addition to everything else he accomplished, Mandela cleared the way for South Africa to emerge as a formidable presence on the world wine market. Despite its long wine history and natural advantages, the quality of South African wine under apartheid was dreadful - as shown by the first imports after the fall of the old regime.

Most people who haven't finished their shopping are starting to worry about what gifts to give a friend, relative or spouse. Quick, what did you give or receive last year? How about two years ago? Most of us can't remember, unless it was a big-ticket item. What if you could give a gift that mattered -- one that literally kept on giving and improved the life of another person? Would you buy that gift? Two years ago, I bought two gifts for people I have never met. One was a goat and the other a sewing class.

At night, when Stephen Elliott can't sleep - a consequence of years of shooting heroin - he leaves his mattress in the barn and walks to the pen where five spindly-legged goat kids live. They crowd around him, jostling for a scratch behind the ears, and sometimes Princess and Jasmine settle into his lap. He strokes their heads and thinks about the unlikely journey that brought him here. After years of drug abuse and months of homelessness, he has found solace, perhaps salvation, among a family of goats.

The owner of the life-sized stuffed goat that has served as the unofficial mascot for the Naval Academy Class of 1961 is offering a $500 reward for information that leads Annapolis police to identify a person in a photo and for information leading to the return of the stuffed billy goat. Dubbed Fearless, the billy goat has stood atop Ron Carlberg's SUV during tailgating before Navy games, and children ask to pet it. But the stuffed animal, bought several years ago by Carlberg's wife, vanished from the back of the couple's car during an Oct. 20 Navy-Indiana game.
