THE PROBLEM: A sewer pipe leaks in a Lauraville alley. THE BACK STORY: Watchdog sniffed out the back story behind a leaky - and stinky - sewer pipe in the alley behind Marty Walunas' house in Northeast Baltimore's Lauraville neighborhood. The leak was inspected several times, but it has not been fixed since the problem was first reported last June. When the weather gets warmer, "it stinks to high heaven," Walunas said. He has reported the leak at least five times. City crews have promptly responded to his 311 calls, but despite several different tests, none seems to have solved the problem, according to Walunas.

Angel food cake for Mother's Day? Some might see it as punishment. I taste possibilities. At a time when the nation is watching its waistline in virtually every sense, this light, airy dessert lets a mom have her cake and eat it, too. Made from scratch, perhaps scented with a bit of rosewater or lemon zest, angel food cake is lovely and dialed down, a dessert without regrets. Add a delicate glaze, a berry garnish, a dab of whipped cream or a sweet sabayon sauce, and you've created options for the lady of the day to add on as she pleases.

Sure, there are problems with TCM's annual 31 days of Oscar celebration, the period when TV's best movie station shows nothing but Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated films. For instance, do we really need to see 1936's The Great Ziegfeld or 1952's The Greatest Show on Earth again? And how about digging up a copy of 1933's Best Picture winner, Cavalcade, which is almost never shown on television? Still, it's days like today that make you want to give the programmers at TCM a great big bear hug. Playing two of the greatest movies ever made back-to-back?

You might say that Taylor Hicks tailor-made the role of Teen Angel in Grease to his precise specifications. The Angel appears in the 1950s-era musical just once, to sing "Beauty School Dropout." And Hicks' version differs in key ways from the renditions of such pop legends as Chubby Checkers, Frankie Avalon and Davy Jones, all of whom previously performed the role. As befitting a man who won the fifth season of American Idol with more than 63 million votes, Hicks brings his own brand of bling to his solo.

[Sony Pictures] Starring David Niven, Kim Hunter; James Mason, Helen Mirren. Both directed by Michael Powell. $24.96. *** 1/2 dvds Best known for directing one of the most beautiful (1948's The Red Shoes) and one of the most controversially voyeuristic (1960's Peeping Tom) films ever released, British director Michael Powell packed a lot more than those two milestones into his four-decade career. This two-disc set, with movies made available for the first time on DVD, offers evidence of both his talent and his singular vision.

You say the economy's in the tank, your credit card's maxed out, and you can't afford a movie ticket, much less a Wii? Well, lift your head up high! Go ahead, look up! The new year holds in store all kinds of celestial entertainment for Maryland stargazers. And they're all free. There are spectacular moonrises and moonsets, a string of promising meteor showers and planetary conjunctions rivaling the Dec. 1 triple conjunction of the moon, Venus and Jupiter. We do seem to be in a sort of "eclipse recession," however.

How did this country get in the financial pickle it's in, Childs? By confusing quantity with quality. Two flat-screen TVs must be better than one flat-screen. And four of those babies? Hog heaven - who cares if we have nothing in the rainy day fund? Same goes for bowl games. Thirty-four bowl games? That's 68 teams, or better than half of all Football Bowl Subdivision programs. You can't tell me with a straight face that there are 68 quality football teams in this country, not after watching a single quarter of the Independence Bowl's clash of the titans, Northern Illinois vs. Louisiana Tech.
