As a rule, state Sen. Michael J. Wagner, a Ferndale Democrat, avoids parade appearances, saying that they only give constituents the chance to insult him.But the senator says he will risk it today. He is to ride in the Glen Burnie Memorial Day Parade at 2 p.m. with County Council candidate James "Ed" DeGrange.He last appeared in a Maryland City parade in 1978, during his first -- and unsuccessful -- run for the Senate against H. Erle Schafer. He's eschewed them ever since."The Glen Burnie Parade is a payback," Mr. Wagner said tongue-in-cheek, referring to criticism that he fancies himself an old-school political boss.

Entering the house, my friend paused and sniffed the air."Potpourri?" she asked. "Who's coming to visit?"I chose to ignore her.Giving me a smile suggesting I was way out of my league, she explained:"You're removing the labels from old TV Guides and attempting to affix them to copies of New Republic. There's a box in your trash from a recently purchased step aerobic bench. These clues taken alone could mean it's an old school friend."Moving into the kitchen, she continued."Fresh fruit artfully arranged in a basket replacing the Tupperware bowl of Gummy Bears and Gushers.

They're everywhere -- trendy silk banners flapping in the breeze.Joyful greetings to all who pass by? Or the pumpkin leaf bags of the '90s?As a woman who still has difficulty remembering to write "1994" on each check, I am in awe of people who manage to change banners to match the holidays.Valentine hearts, shamrocks and Easter Bunnys are nice, but I would like to see the banners used for a more practical purpose, as a warning. For example:* A scale superimposed on a refrigerator. Beware of dieter.

UNIONTOWN'S MEMORIAL DAY service was particularly moving this year as residents laid a wreath to honor David Bennett, a Vietnam veteran and the town's former Memorial Day parade organizer. Bennett, former president of the Uniontown Improvement Association, died in December at age 66. Many friends and neighbors remember him for his many community activities, his fondness for old cars and his loyalty. It seemed fitting to honor not only a war veteran but a man who has meant so much to so many in the Carroll County village.
