Ollie M.J. Ray, whose career teaching in city public schools spanned nearly four decades, died Tuesday of heart failure at Northwest Hospital. She was 82. "They say teachers are born, and Ollie had not only the native ability to be a teacher but also the desire," said Hayyte Jackson, who was a college friend and later a colleague in Baltimore public schools. "She had a great love for children and young people, and wanted to see them receive their appropriate secular and Christian education," said Mrs. Jackson, who retired in 1993 from Windsor Hills Elementary School, where she had been principal.

ONE should always listen to populist politicians. Their particular skill is to identify, flatter and reinforce public moods. If the mood is not there, the populism will not be there. They act therefore like trace elements in an X-ray, showing where the trouble is. That is why German political commentators ought to have been listening to Adolf Hitler in the 1920s. Modern commentators on America ought to be listening to Ollie North now. As Alexander Pope wrote, in one of his most modern-sounding verses, "The people's voice is odd; it is, and it is not, the voice of God."

Dear fellow patriot,You've heard a lot of nonsense recently about future U.S. senator Ollie North, mostly from liberals and the media, about how Ollie's a liar and should have been in prison with Marion Barry, except Ollie got off on a technicality.Technically, a lot of us North supporters don't actually believe in criminals getting off on legal technicalities -- if we're honest, a lot of us aren't that comfortable with the Bill of Rights altogether, excluding, of course, the right to bear arms -- but this was different.

Two things become abundantly clear as you pass through the red-and-white striped storefront into Ollie's Bargain Outlet: This place is unpretentious and knows how to poke fun at itself.That's good if you sell Igloo coolers one day, refrigerators the next and have little, if any, idea what's coming next.At Ollie's in Brooklyn Park, you won't find snooty salespeople, clever displays or well laid-out departments.You will find down-to-earth salespeople, hot coffee for free, and cases of dish-washing liquid bumping unceremoniously into patio furniture.

Ollie Richards, who established a catering business after years of cooking in private homes, died of a stroke Monday at Sinai Hospital. The Gwynn Oak resident was 72. Known for her dishes designed to please the Baltimore palate, she once told a reporter, "Martha Stewart doesn't show me too much." Born Ollie Odell Moody in Northampton County, N.C., she made $12 a week there in domestic service. She arrived in Baltimore in 1958 to become a dining room server for a Ruxton family. "I made $30 a week, and I thought I was rich," she told an Evening Sun reporter in 1993, adding that she was soon inspired by Gertrude Jackson, another Carolinian known throughout North Baltimore for her cooking ability.
