From Liz Atwood: I'm just not getting enough sleep and the kids are the reason why. My sons are no longer infants crying in the middle of the night to be fed or changed. They aren't toddlers running into my room when they have a bad dream. They are a tween and a teen and they just can't seem to fall asleep until very late at night. Their habit of staying up until 11 or later is taking its toll on all of us. Last week, the 16-year-old, who has to get up at 6:30 in order to make the bus on time, asked to have coffee at breakfast.

I've been thinking a lot about college lately. It's not as though it's staring me in the face, either. The oldest is finishing his freshman year in high school. The youngest is still in elementary school. Still, what's occurring on America's college campuses is on my front burner. First and foremost is the ever-escalating cost of a four-year degree - the cause of many a sleepless night for moms and dads. Tuition, fees, room and board for many private colleges has now hit $60,000 a year.

It was nearly noon, not midnight, and the ball that hung three stories high looked more like a cross between a pinata and a helium balloon than the giant one in Times Square that grown-ups have come to know and love. But to a crowd of more than 1,900 - many sporting tutus, face glitter and brightly colored party hats - the setting at the Maryland Science Center could not have been more perfect for ringing in the New Year, kid-style. It was the second annual Midnight Noon, a bash the museum calls a New Year's celebration for those whose bedtime happens long before the ball in Times Square makes its descent, and all the right people were excited.

The usual stars of the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore — the wild cats, hulking elephants and graceful cranes whose habitats are re-created on the grounds — lost some of the spotlight Tuesday to the players, cheerleaders and mascot of the Baltimore Ravens, as the team and zoo played host to about 120 local schoolchildren for an annual community service event. Tuesday was the NFL/United Way's annual "Hometown Huddle," a leaguewide day of service, which this year is focused on combating childhood obesity by getting kids to be more active.

Every spring save maybe seven of my 24 years at The Sun, I have spent part of February and March in some city around Florida, where the Orioles were holding spring training. It first started for me in Miami, where the camp was in a very bad section of the town, so it was always protected by throngs of Miami's "finest." The Orioles then moved to a very peaceful camp on the outskirts of Sarasota, where former pitcher Ben McDonald spent his off-time wrestling alligators, which inhabited a swamp near the camp.

O ne day back in the early '80s, when Leon J. Henry was 14 or 15, he tried to buy a nickel bag of pot. His friends had pooled their allowance money and an excited Leon marched to a corner near his home on Barclay Street. The dealer stared at the $5 bill and shook his head no. "Aren't you Mr. Lewis' son?" he asked. Leon returned home empty-handed. His stern father, Lewis Henry, whose reputation alone kept order in the neighborhood, never found out what his son had tried to do. Now, the father has passed and the teen is a grown man, 43 years old, a high school and college graduate, and director of outreach for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Maryland.

After patiently sitting along a back wall for nearly a half hour, 10-year-old Kaenetra Everett could finally test the new hockey equipment sitting neatly in the corner of the gymnasium. "This is the first time they've brought hockey to this community so that we can play," Everett said after practicing faceoffs, shooting and passing with her friends. "For practice, I think I did good." The equipment arrived at Robert C. Marshall Recreation Center in West Baltimore's Upton neighborhood Wednesday as part of NHL Street, a league-wide program which brings street hockey to children ages 6-16 in cities where ice rinks may not be available.

Thanks to Raven Jameel McClain, about 300 children around Baltimore will have a new, warm winter coat. The inside linebacker made a deal with Wal-Mart where in exchange for a couple off-season appearances at the store, they'd provide the gear for needy kids. This afternoon, kids from area Boys and Girls clubs will head to the Port Covington Wal-Mart to shop for their coats. They'll also be getting hats, gloves and scarves, provided by a donor who wishes to remain anonymous. McClain will be at Wal-Mart from 4 to 7 p.m., meeting the kids and helping them choose jackets.

About three-quarters of parents talk to their kids about money, according to a recent survey by Baltimore'sT. Rowe Price. But many of those parents aren't being honest. The survey of 1,008 parents and 837 kids age 8 to 14 found that 77 percent of parents confessed to fibbing to kids about finances. And 15 percent lied at least once a week. When when it comes to lying to kids, though,  I wasn't so disturbed by Price's findings. Forty-three percent of parents said they don't tell kids how worried they are about money.
