Frankie Beverly may be the biggest R&B star you never heard of.His name won't be unfamiliar to anyone who studies the R&B charts, of course. Thanks to such hits as "Joy and Pain," "Back in Stride" and "Can't Get Over You," Maze featuring Frankie Beverly has been a consistent presence there since the early '80s. The band's live show is legendary, and Maze has been a major attraction on the R&B circuit for more than a decade.But if all you know about R&B is what crosses over to pop, odds are this is all news to you. It's almost as if Maze is the R&B equivalent of the Grateful Dead -- a band with a great live show and a large and loyal audience that nonetheless has made almost no impact on the pop mainstream.

On an unseasonably warm opening weekend, several visitors exited the 7-acre corn maze at Sharp's at Waterford Farm huffing and puffing, and a tad overheated. The 8-foot-tall withered cornstalks that wall in the maze's twisting pathway were the likely culprit, blocking breezes that could have offset the afternoon sun, surmised farm manager Cheryl Nodar. "The people who walk through on our first weekend are always the guinea pigs," she said. "I ask them how it went to be sure it's a good experience, and we're getting great feedback so far. " The corn maze, which debuted in 2002, is an agritourism feature that has helped attract thousands of visitors over the years to the working Glenwood farm, which dates to 1903.

This week marks the 50th anniversary of Lyndon Johnson's "War on Poverty," and as the joke goes, "Poverty won. " Five decades after a blizzard of programs began descending on the American people, the poverty rate remains essentially unchanged. That's a little unfair. What counts as poverty today would not have seemed so impoverished 50 years ago, when many of the poor lived without electricity and were no strangers to hunger. Today, the biggest health problems of the poor are more likely to stem from obesity than anything approaching starvation.

We open this week at the Brain tribe after Tribal Council, where Spencer is reeling after Garrett has been voted off. J'tia is just glad that she's still around, but I don't think that she will be for long. Kass and Tasha think that they'll keep her around for an alliance of girls, but I think that they'll get sick of her before then. Over at Crazytown, also known as wherever Tony is, he decides to come clean to Sarah about being a cop, since there was really no point in him lying about it in the first place.

JOURNEY OVER to Sharp's at Waterford Farm near Glenwood for a relaxing, family-oriented day on a 650-acre working farm. Don't miss the corn maze and the historical facts quiz. Open weekends through the end of the month, the maze will delight youngsters and adults. The maze is part of the Sesquicentennial Celebration of Howard County's 150th birthday.

For three years, Horizon Organic Farm's Amaizing Organic Corn Maze has challenged visitors with its three-mile entanglement of paths. But this year, Tropical Storm Isabel threw the cornfield maze a challenge: high winds and torrential rains that snapped most of the 14 acres of cornstalks at their base. Days before the maze was scheduled to open for the fall with its new design, a chocolate-milk carton, farm officials announced that it would remain closed for the rest of the year. It will reopen next fall, assuming the weather cooperates.

Volunteers have created an old-fashioned maze using a global positioning system to mow familiar farm scenes into a 17-acre cornfield in Westminster. With flashlights, maps and the promise of rescue, visitors can wend their way through yellowing stalks that give way to patterns of a barn, a silo, a windmill, a steer's horned head and the letters that spell Carroll County. Few will take time to decipher the corny scenery, preferring to concentrate on finding a way out of the tightly planted rows of maize.

Not all of the real estate from nursery rhymes and fairy tales is created equal. Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater's bright-orange abode, where he keeps his Marie Antoinette look-alike wife, is so light that one person easily rolled it into place on a recent workday at Clark's Elioak Farm in Ellicott City. Even the Gingerbread House that Hansel and Gretel long ago discovered on a trek through the forest slid easily off a flatbed truck, with just a few pairs of hands and a two-by-four guiding it to its cozy resting spot amid the white pines.

Every time the Oriolesarrive at what I like to call a “critical juncture” in the season, they seem to do something that reinforces the notion that they are on a special mission to change the face of baseball in Baltimore. Maybe Wednesday night's 3-2 victory was only a special late-night treat because the Orioles failed to take full advantage of Rays starter Alex Cobb when he was struggling out of the gate, but it doesn't matter anymore. They just keep building their “wow” factor and revving the crowd into a playoff frenzy.

It's "open season" for health care coverage, and the hunt to find just the right plan is coming down to the wire; for Medicare, the last day to make a selection is Dec. 7. Earlier this year, thanks to Medicare and medicine, my 82-year-old mother-in-law received eye surgery that promises her clearer vision than she's had in more than three-quarters of a century. Still, despite due diligence during last year's open enrollment, and a first-hand trip through the system this year, the coverage choices and their consequences remain frustratingly opaque.

The two sisters looked relieved, if a bit pink in the face, as they staggered to the top of the wooden observation deck. Eleven acres of cornstalks surrounded Kristen and Jennifer Hewer of Stevensville, and as the grade-schoolers took a look around, the dense crop felt as ominous as the seas around a desert isle. "If we didn't have a map," said 9-year-old Jennifer, her eyes wide, "this would be very freaky." To many, corn is something you eat off a fresh cob at summer picnics. But to the growing hordes who wend their way through corn mazes in Anne Arundel and other counties in Maryland this time of year, it's a bumper crop of delightful dread - and an increasingly popular means of celebrating the end of summer and the looming fall.

Though the Maryland men's basketball team is adding two recruits to help shore up some of its backcourt deficiencies, the Terps still appear to have a gaping hole in their frontcourt for at least the start of next season if further moves are not made. Sean Mosley, a shooting guard who finished his career at St. Frances in Baltimore as the second-leading scorer in the state's high school basketball history with 2,933 points, already has signed with Maryland, and Bobby Maze, a junior college point guard with local ties, is expected to do so soon.
