About a dozen kids sat around a long table Sunday afternoon, waiting for the signal. Before each of them was a plate loaded with latkes, the potato pancakes of Hanukkah. Whoever cleaned his or her plate first could claim the title: Champion Latke Eater of 2011. The contest began and ended in a pan-fried blur, with parents cheering, cameras clicking and a lot of determined chewing. The ultimate champ was a curly-haired youngster who, taking the event seriously, had pushed his sleeves up past his elbows.

These students made a significant impact to the success of the Festival in raising a historic amount of money for the Upper Chesapeake Health Cancer Life Net to assist families in their fight with cancer. Their friendly demeanor, willingness and enthusiasm to complete necessary tasks well represented the class of students at Bel Air High School.

Despite its longest losing streak in nine years and the prospect of its first losing season in that span, the Navy football team is still an attractive commodity to the Big East. From all indications, it appears the feeling is mutual. Though no formal invitations have been offered, the Big East took a significant step toward expansion when the presidents of the league's remaining seven schools voted Tuesday in Philadelphia to add members. According to the Associated Press, the Big East will invite Houston, Southern Methodist and Central Florida for full membership, as well as Navy, Air Force and Boise State — considered the plum catch in this bid for survival — as football-only members.

Costco Wholesale Corp. will raise its membership fee $5 to $55 , Reuters reports. Executive members, who earn annual rebate checks, will see their annual membership increase from $100 to $110. Other discount warehouses have already made similar moves. According to the story, BJ's Wholesale increased its membership fee by $5 to $45 in January. Will this decision affect whether you continue to shop at Costco, or whether you plan to join? You have to factor in the increased annual fee to determine whether you could save enough buying in bulk to make it worth your while.

I was disappointed with the genuflection of your editorial opposing U.N. recognition of an independent Palestinian state ("A painful veto," Sept. 19). The U.S. should support membership in the U.N. for Palestine. What are The Sun and President Obama thinking about otherwise? Doesn't the U.S. support the right of self-determination for all people in the world? Having a voice in the U.N. General Assembly is part of that process. Palestine has had its land stolen without compensation for years.

With more than 7 million people in the Baltimore-Washington market, it's inevitable that the University of Maryland will continue to be prominently mentioned - at least in the media - in discussions about conference realignment. But Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said in an interview this week that his school's focus is on maximizing its situation in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and that Maryland is not looking to jump leagues. "We haven't been approached by anybody," Anderson said this week.
