MIFFLINBURG, Pa. -- Bedtime comes early at the Martin farm, where life is still ordered by the rhythms of nature and the Old Order Mennonite faith. By dinnertime, with the cows milked and the animals fed, Amy, 10, and Derick, 12, are struggling to stay awake. By 8 p.m., they are off to bed, soon fast asleep beneath rows of special 4-foot fluorescent lights that bathe them all night in a purplish-blue glow. The lights keep them alive. Amy and Derick have a rare liver disease that causes a dangerous accumulation of a substance called bilirubin.

Spending a sunny autumn Saturday selling cast-offs from garages, attics and basements might ordinarily hold little appeal for college students, but for the right cause, they will forgo the football game for a yard sale. A group of McDaniel College sophomores spent two days hauling, sorting, pricing and showcasing hundreds of items donated for a yard sale to Shepherd's Staff, an outreach ministry to the needy in Carroll County. They are trying to make a difference. The students are part of the local effort participating in Make a Difference Day, a nationwide movement sponsored by USA Weekend and the Points of Light Foundation that encourages neighbors to help each other.

An expanded board of Carroll County commissioners will mean better government, more individualized representation and less deadlock, said supporters of the referendum that won approval by more than 5,000 votes. Republican Del. Donald B. Elliott, who pushed to expand the board from three at-large seats to five members elected by district, argued at political forums that five commissioners would come up with more innovative solutions to the county's burgeoning growth problems. But even he was surprised that the ballot question won by such a large margin.

It takes at least three hours to make a birdhouse from a kit - plus added time for the paint to dry - making it an especially popular snowy-day purchase for moms shopping at the Michael's craft store in Towson yesterday. "Lots of parents are bringing their kids in looking for something to do," said Brian Hockman, who was manning the cash register. "The idea is to get something for little kids to keep them occupied for longer than 10 minutes." The first significant snowfall in nearly a month - what was in some parts of Maryland the biggest accumulation this season - was expected to drop 4 to 8 inches across the state before tapering off around midnight.

Because Chris Snively works with elementary school pupils and has two young children of her own, she knows the unmistakable signs of the flu - the coughing, the fever and the unrelenting muscle aches. So when Piney Ridge Elementary School in Sykesville offered FluMist - a needle-free nasal vaccine - last fall to pupils and staff as part of a University of Maryland School of Medicine study, Snively and her daughter, Haven, tried it. "We were all very healthy and we didn't miss any days of school," said Snively, a guidance counselor at Piney Ridge, where her daughter is in first grade.

Monday morning, and another spinning week of the Power Mom derby begins for Baltimore County prosecutor Katie O'Malley. The alarm sounds the starting bell at 6 a.m. Time to gather homework, breakfast, car keys, school lunches, the briefcase. Then, drop off the kids at school, the nanny's. Arrive at the courthouse. Put away criminals the whole day through. Run a few miles. Drive home to give the kids dinner, a bath and a book at bedtime, while all along the telephone rings like a fire alarm.
