I recently read the letter James Gatton wrote to The Sun in response to Stefanie Deluca's letter to the editor. Mr . Gatton's letter ("Section 8 housing is a nightmare for landlords," May 12) could be no further from the truth. First, it does not take two months for a landlord to get the necessary Section 8 approvals. Usually from the time you turn in the Request for Tenancy Approval (RFTA), have the inspection and then have a signed lease is a total of 14-to-20 days. This process only take this long to prevent fraud - the Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC)

In a recent letter to the editor, Johns Hopkins professor Stefanie DeLuca recently suggested that many landlords refuse to rent to people with Section 8 housing vouchers because they are unfairly prejudiced against those prospective tenants ("Mossburg misrepresents research on vouchers," May 8). My guess is that Ms. DeLuca has never dealt with Section 8 as a landlord. The prejudice of landlords is directed not against the people but against the nightmare bureaucracy that Section 8 rentals entail.

You easily can make a weekend of "peak bagging" by adding the highpoints in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Before you groan, remember that both mountains have driveable roads to the top. And back at work on Monday, you get bragging rights at the coffee pot. Start the weekend with 3,213-foot Mount Davis, just outside Salisbury, Pa. From Interstate 68, take Route 219 north. In Salisbury, pick up Route 669 east. Go just over 7 miles and turn right onto Christner Road (it's gravel). It's just 2.3 miles to the parking area at the base of the observation tower.

Yes, indeed, it's that time of year — again. Fuzzy Punxsutawney Phil emerges from hibernation Wednesday to give his annual forecast. And after last week's thundersnow, if that little groundhog sees his shadow, leading to six more weeks of winter — he's in big trouble. (It doesn't help that some are already forecasting a "Groundhog Day" storm.) In addition to the main event, the folks who live near Gobbler's Knob, where Phil's prediction takes place, have planned a burrow full of activities for visitors, including an art show, souvenir show, book signings, chili cookoff, comedy club night and much more.

An IndyCar practice session for the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course was cut short this morning for Penske driver Helio Castroneves when he had a run-in with driver Mike Conway, as Conway was leaving the pits. "We were having a good session," Castroneves said after being released from the infield care center. "Finally, I was getting the rhythm, especially since we didn't get to test last week. I was really starting to understand what the car needs. " But then, when Conway came out of the pits the two eventually collided and the steering wheel's knob spun around and hit Castroneves' hand hard.

As any Frank Lloyd Wright fan knows, two extraordinary works by America's favorite architect inhabit our region: Fallingwater in western Pennsylvania and the Pope-Leighey House in Alexandria, Va. But somehow a lot of us miss Kentuck Knob, the relatively undiscovered Wright residence and museum in the mountains just minutes from Fallingwater, Wright's masterpiece. I have followed Wright's trail for years -- this spring adding Taliesin West and Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium in Arizona to my FLW map. But to uncover a gem like this one that's so close to home?

In a few days, George Vlosich III will enroll in the Cleveland Institute of Art. He plans to major in graphic arts, but he prefers to work in a medium the school doesn't offer -- Etch A Sketch.It's no joke. Vlosich, a native of Lakewood, Ohio, has spent about half of his 18 years perfecting the art of Etch A Sketch-ing. Anyone who has ever tried a hand at the toy knows how frustrating it is to form almost any coherent shape: imagine etching a detailed portrait of Cal Ripken in Camden Yards, the baseball legend's arms straining from a swing of the bat.But Vlosich, who brought his artwork to Baltimore recently, does it -- and does it better than most.

JUST WHEN it looked as if Los Angeles had cinched the national nuttiness championship, along comes dear old Dixie titillating American lust for the clownish with an uproar about whether a female skull may be shaved bare as a brass doorknob.Naturally, a judge has already had to intervene. Where would American farce be without the courts? If he had had a firmer grasp on the American character Stephen Sondheim would have titled his famous ballad "Send In the Judges."With this latest sensation, silliness connoisseurs who lie awake wondering if O.J. Simpson can get a fair trial with only $10 million to spend on lawyers now face the dawn wondering if Shannon Faulkner can get a fair haircut.
