Tired of leftover Thanksgiving turkey? How about a different bird, say a plump Canada goose?The trick is to cook the goose just enough. As with all game, when overcooked it becomes tough, dry and tasteless. It doesn't have the natural fat of barnyard poultry.The bird should be cooked to a golden brown, maybe blackened just a bit in splotches. Probe it with a fork or knife, and if it seems tender and juicy, it's done.You can compensate for the lack of natural fat in a goose when roasting by laying strips of bacon or salt pork over the breast.

COLLEGE PARK - A nearly 60-year-old basketball arena called Cole Field House was transformed into a hot, crowded, ear-deafening time capsule Friday night. It could have been 1969, the year Lefty Driesell arrived from Davidson filled with bluster and bravado and determined to make Maryland into "the UCLA of the East. " It could have been 1989, the year Gary Williams returned to his alma mater from Ohio State, vowing to rebuild a scandal-ridden, down-on-its-luck program. It could have been 2002, when the Terps won their first national championship a few weeks after closing the building with an unbeaten home season.

Rosemary Muir likes to dress up her goose. A school outfit in September. A tuxedo for formal occasions. A wedding gown when her daughter got married. And, of course, appropriate attire for the appropriate holiday. Muir bought her first and, she thought, her last 26-inch tall, 90-pound concrete goose two decades ago in Ohio and brought it with her to Howard County. Ten years ago, she and her husband took the prized lawn ornament to their new home on South Hanover Street, in South Baltimore's Otterbein.

Gena Wilson flicks her hot-pink-polished nails in the air as if, perhaps, finger-painting. But there is no canvas, and what she is doing is “grabbing energy from the air,” she says. Wilson, a licensed clinical social worker, self-described psychic medium and animal communicator, is visiting Dogs & Co., a pet supply and animal wellness venue whose new location in Snowden Center on Oakland Mills Road is large enough to host practitioners including chiropractors and acupuncturists, as well as breed rescue events in its Canine Cafe.

NOT long ago, Sabino Gutierrez of Ontario, Calif., was awarded $1 million in damages by a Los Angeles jury for sexual harassment by a female executive in his company. A Minnesota boy is suing his school for failing to protect him from explicit sexual taunting from other boys. As the saying goes, "What's good for the goose is good for the gander."But sexual harassment isn't good for anyone, regardless of gender -- goose or gander. Unless harassers are stopped and pay consequences, they miss out on meaningful and authentic human relating.

While goose hunters in the Atlantic Flyway can expect to pursue resident Canada geese over an expanded season in some parts of the state this fall and winter, hunters elsewhere in the nation will be gunning for migrants.The reason, of course, is that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has suspended the hunting season in Atlantic Flyway states while the flyway's population of migratory Canada geese rebuilds. In the past three years, the number of breeding pairs has increased from a low of 29,000 to 63,000.

The proposed season is half the 60 days possible under guidelines established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The daily bag limit would be one bird.(Article, 8D)

How come the gas prices went up every day for the past month and a half when the price per barrel of oil went up, but now the price of a barrel of oil dropped almost $15 and not one gas station has dropped their price per gallon. Someone needs to check on the oil companies and see why prices have not come down and what are the oil companies doing with all their profits. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. If we had to pay when the price went up, we should get the benefit of lower prices when oil prices drop.

It is appropriate that we worry about the 13 people who were caught "Partying on the city's dime" (March 29). But where is the outrage for the "too big to fail gang" of Wall Street bankers who fleeced the common folks, gambled away the lives of so many hard-working citizens and caused world-wide economic robbery? When will they be apprehended and brought to justice? When will we seize their champagne and thwart their unbridled arrogance? An old English verse helps us to understand what is going on: "The law locks up both man and woman who steal the goose from off the common.

Visitors to Columbia's Lakefront promenade have increasingly been confronted by panhandling resident Canada geese, who had stayed away for years, chased by Glenn and Bud, the town's two border collies. But two years after the last dog died, the birds seem to have forgotten they're not wanted. As a reminder, town leaders are preparing to spend up to $43,200 a year to bring in rented dogs from Frederick County. The nonprofit Columbia Association wants to rid its main waterfront at Lake Kittamaqundi of the geese — and their droppings.

Air temperature hovered around 23 degrees.

A big television screen inside the Wishing Well was showing a stock car race.
