LIKE MANY PEOPLE who root for the Orioles, Tony Pente would love to find Carlos Delgado or a new starting pitcher among his holiday gifts. But Pente has more basic desires this year, such as a safe return to his wife and four children in 2005, and good things for the people of Afghanistan, where he is in a yearlong Army deployment. Pente, 34, is an intelligence specialist with deep Baltimore-area roots. He grew up in Anne Arundel County and graduated from Northeast High School. His grandfather is the unofficial mayor of Little Italy whose bedroom serves as the projection room for the open-air summer movie festival.

IN THE SUMMER of his 89th year, John Pente is a hero right out of the movies. In fact, without him, there are no movies. Not in Little Italy, not on Friday nights that have become one of the city's great, unanticipated, accidental charms of the year.Who knew that such delight could come out of a zoning dispute? From a spat over a billboard mural, Little Italy winds up instead with a makeshift movie screen on the cleared-out parking lot of Da Mimmo's restaurant. From disagreement between restaurateurs and residents, they wind up with hundreds of people gathered after dark to watch free movies under the stars.

Dallas When a friend suggested lunch at a new Italian restaurant, how could I say no? Especially when she said it was her very favorite place and the spot she took all out-of-town friends.To her, I was an out-of-town friend. To me, I was back home.I left Dallas 13 months earlier but, whenever I located myself in space -- like Dorothy dreaming of Kansas -- that's where I'd be.Missing Dallas made me an easy mark.I know. I once disdained it, too.On my first trip to the city, to cover a convention, I wondered how soon I could leave.

John Pente lived his entire life within a one-block radius in Little Italy. He worked as a machinist for Western Electric and devoted himself to his family, his neighborhood and his church, St. Leo's. But in 1999, he allowed the community promoters of an open-air film festival to install a projector in his grown-up sons' old bedroom. By the time Mr. Pente died on Monday, at 100, this simple act of generosity had made him "Little Italy's ambassador to the world. " Little Italy's Open Air Film Festival didn't just heal a rift that had developed between area restaurant owners and residents.

THE FIRST TIME Peyton Manning steps behind center tonight, Brian Billick would like you to forget your nice Mid-Atlantic manners and give him such an earful that he can't hear himself think. This shouldn't be very difficult, considering that every seat at M&T Bank Stadium will be filled for the Ravens' regular-season opener ... and most of you fans have been preserving your vocal cords by sitting quietly at Oriole Park for the past two months. There has to be a lot of pent-up frustration in Baltimore right now, so why not subject Manning and the hated Colts to a little primal scream therapy?

For Al Koch and his staff, yesterday was about the same as the day before. The manager of Barts Sporting Goods in Glen Burnie didn't have a line of customers waiting to buy certain types of once-banned assault weapons. In fact, he said he didn't have any in stock. "I would order them if people wanted that style of weapon, but that style of weapon was never our thing," Koch said. The first day after the expiration of the federal assault-weapons ban passed with gun shop owners across the state reporting more questions than orders from customers.
