WASHINGTON - Jeffrey Almer's 72-year-old mother, Shirley, died in December from salmonella poisoning. "Cancer couldn't kill her, but peanut butter did," said Almer, whose mother ate tainted peanut butter in a Minnesota rehabilitation center where she was being treated for a urinary tract infection. With a visibly controlled sense of anger, Almer told a hushed congressional committee yesterday that, the day before his mother was supposed to return home, doctors unexpectedly gave her just hours to live.

BERKELEY, Calif. - Authorities arrested one of California's most notorious kidnappers after receiving a tip from a home-care worker who said she had been offered $500 to find him a child, officials said. Kenneth Parnell, 71, who was sent to prison for kidnapping Steven Stayner in the 1970s, told the home-care worker last week that he would pay her if she could obtain a 4-year-old boy for him, said Clint Ojala, an investigator with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office. "One day she was over at his house, and he just said, `I have 500 bucks, and I'm willing to spend it on a kid,'" Ojala told the Los Angeles Times in an article published yesterday.

Howard High athletic director Vince Parnell yesterday received a $93,000 estimate from Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. for a modern lighting system on the school's football field. A storm last month blew down one of 10 wooden light poles erected in 1962; an independent contractor condemned the remaining nine for safety reasons. The new lighting system would comprise four poles - two on each side of the field - that would be behind the track instead of in front as were the old poles. Each new pole would be 70 feet tall and have 15 lights.

Those rare moments of history when personal and political lives actually intersect without the help of a scriptwriter make for rare and powerful drama. And that is what drives "Parnell and the Englishwoman," a four-part Masterpiece Theatre that begins Sunday night at 9 o'clock on Maryland Public Television, channels 22 and 67.Charles Stewart Parnell might have been an arrogant autocrat, but to the Irish of the mid-19th century, he was their arrogant autocrat, ready, willing and able to give as good as he got in the rough and tumble of British parliamentary politics.

As teacher, coach and athletic director at Howard High School, Vince Parnell worked long hours and often found himself juggling competing priorities. Most mornings, he would arrive at school between 5:45 and 6:15 to prepare for the social studies classes he taught that day. Then he would stay after school to coach football, girls' basketball or track. And, as athletic director for the school, he was responsible for scheduling buses to away games and taking money at the gate for home games.

Cornerback Gerrick McPhearson is billed as the fastest player in the history of Maryland football. Yesterday, he more than lived up to that tag after being taken in the seventh round of the NFL draft by the New York Giants. The 5-foot-10, 194-pound player from Howard High and Cardinal Gibbons even outran his media coverage. He couldn't be reached through his agent's Chicago office, his home phone number was unlisted, and his Howard High coach (Vince Parnell) didn't know where McPhearson was. "He's probably out celebrating," Parnell said of the only Maryland and Baltimore-area player selected yesterday in the fourth through seventh rounds.

Howard County's only lighted high school football stadium got a little darker last Thursday. A storm blew down one of five wooden light poles on the visitors' side of the field at Howard High. No plans have been made to replace the pole. "That will be a main agenda when we get back in school," athletic director Vince Parnell said yesterday. Howard County schools are on spring break. The structures, which resemble utility poles, were erected 40 years ago and paid for by parent fund-raising.
