Neither Henry L. Outten nor his son, L.H., thought much about the white liquid that fell from the sky as they built a house in the Eastern Shore town of Trappe until an hour or so later, when they "got to talking about the times we're living in." Then they decided maybe they better call the police, and 10 minutes later "all hell broke loose," the elder Outten said. State police showed up Tuesday night and closed off the tiny neighborhood off U.S. 50 with crime scene tape. The Talbot County Fire Department arrived, then hazardous materials crews from Cambridge, Salisbury and the state Department of the Environment dressed in protective gear, and neighbors who couldn't get to their homes crowded the streets.

Anne Arundel County officially opened a new water access point Wednesday in Shady Side, an offshoot of a citizen-led effort to increase public access to bodies of water. More than 70 residents and county officials attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Shady Side Park, and officials said attendees brought more than 30 kayaks to give the new facility a test drive. The access point - on Parish Creek, which feeds into the West and Rhode rivers - offers enthusiasts a place to put in their kayaks, canoes, inner tubes and paddleboards.

Why do some recipes call for the pot to be covered, others for it to be partially covered or uncovered, while some recipes don't say anything about covering the pot? You've uncovered a minefield for recipe writers. While some struggle to tell readers exactly what to do with their pot lids, others leave readers to figure it out. Here are some guidelines: Cover a pot whenever you are attempting to bring the contents to a boil. This means covering the pot when you're heating water for pasta - or bringing the water back to a boil after you've added the pasta, or bringing a soup to an initial simmer.

What did you make of Bravo's Top Chef, and what is this thing called "molecular gastronomy" that everyone kept talking about? I think that the final showdown between Ilan Hall and Marcel Vigneron was a great proxy fight, a stark portrayal of two divergent approaches to restaurant cooking. Hall (whom I know slightly) cooks in a culinary style that is increasingly rare in New York: that of the national (or regional) traditionalist. The trend among American chefs is to fuse cuisines, to plate in inventive ways, to use food to make a statement.

Q: What is the best way to remove fat from stocks, soups and pan juices?A: There are numerous ways to remove fat from stocks, soups and pan juices. One of the simplest, if you have the time, is to refrigerate and chill the liquid. The fat will rise to the top and solidify, making it easy to remove.A defatting cup (also called degreasing pitcher) is also an excellent piece of equipment for skimming fat. The fat will quickly rise to the top and the liquid at the bottom can then be poured out, relatively fat-free, through the spout of the cup which is located at the cup's base.

The most satisfying dinner isn't always the biggest. Some nights, there's nothing better than a huge glass of wine and a couple small plates. John Liberatore, part of the Liberatore family that owns five eponymous restaurants in the Baltimore area, agrees. Frustrated by the lack of wine and tapas bar options in Baltimore County, Liberatore opened Liquid Lib's last November in a space adjacent to the family's Timonium location. With good food and a festive atmosphere, Liquid Lib's is already a hit with the locals, who seem thrilled to have a new small plates spot in the county.

A Sparks-based insurance company that was seized by Delaware regulators faces possible liquidation in a wild case - one with dueling allegations of fraud, forgery and a vendetta, plus a sanction involving an Aston Martin sports car. Delaware's Department of Insurance said Monday that Indemnity Insurance Corp. is in bad financial shape, and efforts to rehabilitate the company to avoid liquidation "have not been successful. " Indemnity's founder - who contends the company is financially solid - said the regulator has indicated in court that it wants to move this week to liquidate the firm.

Some things retain value long after their usefulness is part of history. Pen knives are a case in point. No one, save the occasional Colonial era re-enactor, uses bird quills as writing implements, yet pen knives, the pocket-sized folding blades that made it possible to turn feathers in to pens, are as popular as ever. It's likely there are more homes that own a pen knife or two than homes that don't. They're not necessarily all that useful, but they have a practical appeal. Same goes for gourds.

Environmental matters dominated the attention of the Anne Arundel County Council this week, as members voted to add restrictions on development in the county's so-called "critical area" near tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay and hosted a spirited public debate on the question of imposing countywide storm-water management fees. By a 5-2 vote at their Feb. 19 meeting, council members approved the first measure, which supporters said brings the county's critical area code in line with amended state regulations.

NEW YORK (American Banker) -- U.S. bankers have built up their cash positions substantially in recent weeks, in part to ensure that borrowers would have access to credit during a war in the Persian Gulf.One measure of the cash buildup: Excess reserves held by banks in the Federal Reserve System have skyrocketed from $800 million to $3.5 billion in past few weeks. On top of that, banks are probably holding even more in their own coffers.First Interstate Bancorp alone has decided to hold an extra $1 billion in cash to ensure that its corporate clients remain liquid during the current crisis.

Steel from Sparrows Point built the Golden Gate Bridge, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, hundreds of ships for World War II and livelihoods for tens of thousands of Baltimore-area families. The story of the massive steel mill follows the arc of American manufacturing — rapid ascent, years of dominance, a generation of shrinking employment and decline. In the last dozen years, the mill has had five owners, two bankruptcies and many furloughs. Last week came a stark warning that the final chapter in its 125-year history could be at hand.

A liquidation firm won the bidding for Sparrows Point, offering $72 million for the Baltimore County steel mill - less than a tenth of what the complex sold for just four years earlier - and realizing the worst fears of its roughly 2,000 employees. Mill advocates vowed to push for a miracle to keep steelmaking going there. The local United Steelworkers union had hoped for a steelmaker would buy and restart the mill - idled after owner RG Steel filed for bankruptcy in May. But no steelmaking companies showed up to bid at the Tuesday afternoon auction in New York, said Joe Rosel, president of Local 9477 in Locust Point.
