Hoot needs more owls. And more Florida. Ostensibly about some adorable owls who are about to have their homes bulldozed in the name of progress -- hence the title -- it's more about three teens who decide this is a bad thing and pledge to do whatever's necessary to stop it. Hoot (New Line) Starring Logan Lerman, Brie Larson, Cody Linley. Directed and co-written by Wil Shriner. Rated PG. Time 94 minutes.

WHITNEY HOOT did not set out to save the Chesapeake Bay. To be honest, the Girl Scout project that brought her the attention was not even her idea. "Actually," says Whitney, sitting on her couch one day after school and eating Tagalongs, "I didn't want to do this." She can admit this now, a few months after she galvanized her Anne Arundel County community into action and learned something about the nature of giving along the way. Because of Whitney, thousands of young oysters, or spats, are floating in cages from 24 piers outside her window.

They might not be able to bring gasoline prices back down to the $1-a-gallon level, but Maryland grain farmers are exploring the possibility of building an alternative fuel production plant in the state. Lynne Hoot, executive director of the Maryland Grain Producers Association, said yesterday that the group has contracted with a Minnesota-based research company to study the feasibility of building an ethanol plant in Maryland. Ethanol is a gasoline substitute or extender that can be made from such grains as corn or barley, or from other starchy products, such as sweet potatoes.
