Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  HACKNEYED Many people fail to recognize the buried metaphors in English that derive from the time that horses were commonly used for transportation. That is why you find the mistaken free reign  for free rein  in student papers. Free rein  for surrender of control to another is a hackneyed metaphor, worn so smooth by use that it is scarcely recognized as such.

Newcomer Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant adds some balance to Harbor East, which has been dominated by high-end establishments. This is the third big opening, following Townhouse Kitchen and Bar and Ouzo Bay, on this stretch of Lancaster Street, where the border between Fells Point and Harbor East gets a little fuzzy. Gordon Biersch is an attractive option for visitors, families, office workers and just plain folks. It is arguably the most recognizable brand on the block.

LONDON -- The chattering classes had themselves a bit of a giggle when the inner-city borough of Hackney -- poor, cockney, multicultural and the erstwhile home of "the loony left" -- announced the appointment of a tourist director.London tourist routes generally fall within a well-trodden territory marked roughly by Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, Harrod's luxury department store, West End theaters, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London.One old guide says the most interesting place in Hackney is a former swamp.

Carol Hackney, a land preservation activist, has lived on two farms named Cold Saturday Farm in Carroll County -- one is her home on Oakland Road in Eldersburg, and the original was her childhood home a few miles away in Finksburg. Hackney's parents had bought the first Cold Saturday Farm at auction. Her father, H. Hamilton Hackney, was a judge in Baltimore's juvenile court who retired in 1943. He was from Pittsburgh, and her mother, Alice, was from New York City, but they met in Wyoming.

In fact, earlier this year, in a civil proceeding in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, Mr. Hackney signed a confessed judgment in which he acknowledged responsibility for $450,000 found missing from his title company's escrow account.The Sun regrets the errors.

The Finksburg Planning Area Council, an unofficial liaison group between the community and Carroll County, will host a "light-hearted, roundtable exchange" of stories at its monthly meeting Thursday, said Jim Johnson, council president and a retired construction worker who has lived in the area for about two years. "If the Finksburg community wants to know where it is going, it has to know where it has come from," Johnson said.

A lane lined with red maple trees winds past a 250-year-old stone farmhouse, a chicken coop and a barn nearly as old as the home. Morgan horses graze in the lush pastures and slurp water from clear ponds, helping to complete an idyllic South Carroll County scene that has been safeguarded from development through a preservation easement. From this homestead, Carol Hackney, 74 and a lifelong farmer, bristles at the sight of surveyors' flags and stakes. She said she has tried unsuccessfully over the years to buy the neighboring land.

Showtime has an advertising slogan to promote its slate of Black History Month programming in February: "Strong. Spirited. Real. The Stories on Showtime." Keep the Faith, Baby, a docudrama starring Harry Lennix and Vanessa Williams, in the story of Congressman Adam Clayton Powell Jr. is none of the three. And it makes me kind of mad. One goal of Black History Month is to use television is to tell a mass audience stories about the African-American experience - especially stories that the mainstream media might not have told well, or told at all. I suspect that Powell's story, which primarily took place in 1940s, '50s and '60s, was filtered through the racist culture and journalism of the time.

The Columbia Festival of the Arts' First Annual Visual Arts Competition may also be the last, at least as presently constituted.The multimedia art show, which opened at the Columbia Mall Monday, has run into controversy over its banning of nudes. And it has been scaled back from a four-week to a two-week show (closing June 22) because the mall needs to reclaim the space to prepare it for a new tenant.As a result of these problems, both the show's organizer, Wendy Bush Hackney, and the festival's managing director, Lynne Nemeth, have indicated a show under the same conditions will not be back next year.
