Your front-page story on Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler's pressing his drivers to speed through traffic was a real winner ( "Gansler responds to claims he ordered troopers to drive in unsafe manner," Oct. 13). If I still lived in my home state I would need that information before making up my mind whether to vote for him. If all the people in Maryland who drive over the speed limit voted for him he would win hands down. What a laugh. Randall Miller, Ocean View, Del.

In a frenetic era of football where the hurry-up offense tends to be all the rage, the Ravens have adopted more of an old-school approach. The Ravens haven't entirely scrapped the no-huddle offense under new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, but it's definitely been reduced to something they do more out of necessity -- it's not a heavy chunk of their base offense. That's in stark contrast to a year ago when former offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell devoted many of his game plans to the no-huddle in an effort to spark a stagnant offense that finished 29th in the NFL last season.

I thought the headline on the front page of the March 14 issue ("Catonsville woman won't slow down," Catonsville Times ) was going to be a story about the lady, who almost runs me down when I walk on Magruder Avenue. The subheading could have been, "She just won't put down her cell phone, either. " Damian O'Connor Catonsville

COLLEGE PARK -- Indiana coach Kevin Wilson never worked under Mike Leach, and he was never on a staff with West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. But Wilson runs the same type of up-tempo, Air Raid offense that Holgorsen learned under Leach at Texas Tech and now employs with the Mountaineers. The Hoosiers (2-1) run the ball more than most Air Raid-style offenses, but Wilson's offense plays fast and has proven capable of putting up a lot of points. Stopping that offense figures to be key for Maryland (3-1)

It seems many people are in a hurry and don't make allowances for our older population. As much as a senior might want to move faster, their bodies cannot react or walk as fast as a younger person. I have seen the elderly trying to cross the street with someone beeping their horn at them or the driver getting far too close, intimidating the poor senior trying to move as fast as they can. I have witnessed impatient people in line behind the senior who tower over them as if it's going to make them pay faster.

Tapes of 911 calls made to police the night that Noah Jamahl Jones died reveal a chaotic scene outside the Pasadena party where the 17-year-old was beaten more than six weeks ago. According to the tape recording, a nervous caller reported that an armed group had shown up at a house in the 700 block of 205th St. and that he had been struck on the head with a pistol. "There are guys standing outside my house and they're fighting. ... Hurry up! Hurry up!" he yelled before his phone cut off. The caller had phoned 911 moments earlier, but that conversation was cut short when his phone disconnected.

I WENT TO see the movie "Twister" the other night, and not because I thought it would be any good. Stephen Hunter, The Sun's esteemed film critic, called it infantile twaddle, hardly a recommendation for those of us determined to spend our lives twaddle-free.So I went with my eyes open.Which was, by the way, my first mistake.I wasn't two fingers into my popcorn before a big twister nearly lifted me out of my seat, rumble-vision style. I felt like Dorothy on the way to Oz, which is, of course, just the effect they were hoping for. There's even a little girl who almost loses her dog. Fortunately, the dog is saved.

On the field: Cal Ripken went 0-for-10 in Cleveland, in the first games after he surpassed Lou Gehrig's record. But he seems to have regained his stroke, getting a hit and two RBIs Monday, and a single in the fourth inning last night.In the dugout: When Boston starter Rheal Cormier struggled through a messy three-run inning in the second, Red Sox manager Kevin Kennedy had left-hander Zane Smith warming in a hurry -- and in the ballgame in the third. And when Smith floundered in the fourth, right-hander Jeff Suppan began to throw.

When the Ravens passed their way to a Super Bowl title last winter, they were most effective when they spread out opponents and put the pedal to the metal with their no-huddle offense. Early this season, though, the Ravens had to pump their brakes on that approach after injuries at wide receiver and tight end pushed newcomers into unexpected roles. As healthy as it has been all season, the Ravens' offense had the need for speed Sunday, hurrying up to the ball after plays and using three-receiver sets on the majority of their plays to attack the Pittsburgh Steelers.

My oldest son turned 16 last month, and I took a day off from work to spend it with him. It was also my plan to get his learner's permit. I thought a trip to the Motor Vehicle Administration would make a great birthday present, and it would afford us some father-son bonding time. Yep, he was finally 16 and ready for another rite of passage and the freedom that comes with driving. As my wife loves to say, "How hard could it be?" I, of course, had no illusion that this would be easy.

When the Ravens and Broncos kick off the regular season Thursday night, count on seeing defenders gasping for thin mountain air as the two quarterbacks race their offenses to the line of scrimmage to run play after play. Peyton Manning has long been a maestro of the no-huddle offense, orchestrating high-scoring offenses for 14 years in Indianapolis and another in Denver. The Ravens just made the no-huddle a staple of their offense last season, but with quarterback Joe Flacco having played in a high-paced attack in college, they are already one of the NFL's fastest.

Jeffrey Clayton from Baltimore was hoping someone would have the recipe for the sticky buns that were served in the cafeterias at Garrison Junior High and Forest Park High school back in the 1950s when he and his wife were students there. Unfortunately, I did not receive any recipes for those particular goodies, but I did get a super-easy and delicious recipe for making sticky buns from Helen Braun of Charleston, S.C., that I decided to try. She said she frequently makes these when she has last-minute company or if she just wants to treat her kids on a weekend morning.

THE BOY stands at attention with his ball cap in his right hand placed gently over his heart. He's quiet, but if you look closely you see his lips moving. When the anthem is over, he resets the cap on his head, spits and adjusts himself inside his protective cup, just like the major-leaguers. He's 6 years old. The game is on. He's the third batter, and when it's his turn, all eyes are on him. He knocks the dirt from his cleats, tightens up his batting gloves, and with a BIG smile, digs in. He's smiling because he knows what will happen next.

It might not come as a surprise that Valentine's Day is the busiest day of the year at A. Kirchmayr Chocolatier in Timonium. The gourmet shop on Deereco Road that makes its own chocolate in-house even extends its hours on Feb. 14. "It's the busiest day because men are usually, in general, procrastinators," said owner Albert Kirchmayr. "When they leave work they remember they have to bring something home so we are open then. " For the holiday, the shop has a few specialties, including assorted chocolate candies encased in a chocolate shell and chocolate-covered strawberries.

Packed doesn't begin to describe Hannah Oneda's schedule. While it's common for freshmen to falter and sludge their way through their first semester at college, and take to liberties in exploring their newfound freedom, the Johns Hopkins cross country runner from Winters Mill has hit the ground running - literally and figuratively. "I wake up around 8 or 9 to do either a 30-minute pool or shakeout run, or yoga with the team. Then, I go to class from 9 to 12, eat lunch and maybe fit in another 30-minute pool run if I didn't do it in the morning.
