The recent code orange air quality alert is not surprising ( "Code Orange air quality alert issued, relatively rare outside summertime," Dec. 2). As I drove through Carroll County last Sunday I noticed at least five properties where large amounts of leaves were being openly burned, sending vast plumes of white smoke into the air. If it was happening in Carroll, then it was probably also happening in Frederick and other western counties. Open burning is illegal, but some people just don't like the government telling them what to do. Where was law enforcement?

My dogwood had leaf spots last summer. Now my neighbors say it's dead and I should cut it down. Should I? Your neighbors may think it had Discula anthracnose, a fungal disease that slowly killed many dogwoods - particularly stressed ones - in full sun and poor soil. However, because of the genetic diversity of the dogwood, this disease is no longer the rampant threat it once was. Resistant dogwoods survived. Maryland weather fluctuates yearly, and wet conditions last year led to outbreaks of other fungal leaf spot diseases.

The St. Vincent Pallotti Baseball Team would like to thank all of the Laurel-area residents who so generously supported our first annual fall leaf raking fundraiser. The response was overwhelming and gratifying. The team raked over 70 homes and earned over $5,000 in donations. We very much regret having to turn down a number of requests as we were simply unable to meet the demand. Bob Seyko Laurel

WASHINGTON -- While in Washington the other day I ate a leaf for lunch, at an embassy.The embassy was Canadian, the lunch was to promote the country's food and wine, and the leaf was a maple. The maple leaf, as everyone who knows how to pronounce "about" can tell you, is on the flag and is a symbol of our neighbor to the north. I ate two maple leaves. One was fashioned out of maple sugar and was served, along with blueberries and a Canadian whiskey sauce, as dessert.The other leaf was the real thing, right from the tree.

My garden was built on impoverished soil, but I've worked hard to improve it. I bury kitchen scraps in the back yard. I salvage clippings from a barbershop. After rainstorms, I scoop up earthworms from the sidewalk and place them in the soil.Anything organic is fodder for my garden -- the cheaper the mulch, the better. What I relish most are leaves -- bags and bags of them -- removed from neighbors' lawns at night.Each fall, I cruise the streets at dusk in search of leaves, stopping at curbside just long enough to toss the chubby plastic bags into my pickup truck.

Opinion: It won't be a surprise if Ryan Leaf gets drafted ahead of Peyton Manning. Leaf has a big arm, thinks fast, hung tough in the Rose Bowl and looks like the better long-term prospect.Fact: The AFC championship game is being played at Three Rivers Stadium for the third time in four years.Opinion: Broncos 23, Steelers 20.Fact: The average National League game (2: 48) was nine minutes shorter than the average American League game (2: 57) in 1997.Opinion: If I'm either of the college football champs, Michigan or Nebraska, I'm just glad I didn't have to play No. 3 Florida State, which lost one game, by three points at Florida.

Uchenna Ibezue has been designing clothes ever since she can remember. As a child, she cut scraps of cloth and paper to make new dresses for her dolls. “I even used a leaf,” Ibezue says with a laugh. Today, the 38-year-old designer with a new boutique at Historic Savage Mill favors matte jersey and silks, chiffon and lace. “I like fabrics that drape -- they flatter everyone's body,” she says.

There was a time when the real reasons weren't known for why the autumn leaves of leaf-losing trees and shrubs look so colorful prior to falling. But it was an important question just the same, since autumn's leaf-color changes clearly signaled the end of the growing season. In lieu of a scientific explanation, then, other explanations were concocted - and some were as colorful as autumn-colored leaves themselves. For instance, according to pre-Colombian Algonquins - Native Americans that once resided in our area - a fierce fight was fought long ago and high in the sky by spirit warriors against a great-bear spirit.

More than 90 percent of the leaves have fallen off our 30-year-old English walnut trees. They started falling several weeks ago, and two neighbors also have this problem. What is wrong, and what can I do about it? We are getting many reports of mature trees of assorted species dropping leaves. We suspect that this is a result of stress from the repeated droughts and excessively high temperatures this summer. Other plants are displaying early autumn behaviors, too, such as apples, which are maturing much earlier than normal.

Say it with me now: Shisoito. That's She. Sew. Eeto. In other words, what you get when Shiso Tavern, the new Asian-fusion restaurant in Canton, takes the typical Latin-American Mojito recipe and moves it further East - Japanese style. So what makes the Shiso Mojito special enough to have its own whimsical nickname (credit Dana Morris, bar manager and the cocktail's creator, with that one)? It's all in the herb. Shiso, a Japanese basil, is a subtle mint-flavored leaf that general manager Tim Ernst says is often used as a green garnish in sushi dishes.

Ryan Leaf isn't exactly making a good first impression with his new boss.While new San Diego Chargers coach Mike Riley was conducting a "voluntary" summer camp over the weekend, Leaf was in Clinton, N.J., playing in the Cadillac NFL Golf Classic. He shot rounds of 88 and 89 and was eliminated.He obviously needs as much work on his golf game as he does on his football game.Leaf had a nightmarish rookie season on and off the field and was supposedly going to get a fresh start this year.But he has been the same old Leaf recently.

My roses are denuding. Some leaves are spotted, some yellow, but they are disappearing fast. Help! The fungal disease called black spot causes 1/16- to 1/2-inch spots on leaves, leaf yellowing, and leaf drop. In severe cases the entire shrub defoliates. Some steps to combat black spot include: •Never using overhead watering methods •Removing all infected leaves from the plant and from the ground •Pruning to open the center of the bush to allow sunlight and air •Mulching underneath to prevent soil from splashing spores back onto the leaves •Keeping rose plants watered when needed to prevent them from becoming stressed Fungicide sprays prevent infection, they can't cure.
