MIDDLEBURG, Va. - It is an area known around the world as the home to wealthy people, successful horse breeders, even Academy Award-winning actors. But never mind those pampered few, say mere mortals of the area like Margaret Hawes, who runs the Little Apple Pastry Shop in the neighboring town of Aldie."

Not so long ago, if you wanted to visit a vineyard near Baltimore for an afternoon of tastings and tours, your first and typically only stop was Boordy Vineyards, the oldest vineyard in the state, established in Hydes in 1945. Even in winter, it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon, with plenty of wines to sample and buy, and experts to lead you through the grounds and winemaking operations. Now, though, it's easy to extend the experience, visiting another Maryland vineyard or two nearby.

The Baltimore school system confirmed yesterday that its chief financial officer has left her job. Rose Piedmont is the second top city school system official to leave within a week. Schools spokeswoman Edie House declined to comment on whether Piedmont resigned or was fired. The school system did not provide details last week when it announced the departure of its longtime attorney, Anthony J. Trotta. "Rose has decided, like Tony, to pursue other opportunities," House said yesterday.

The Baltimore school system's financial woes are even worse than previously announced, officials acknowledged yesterday as they released an audit that showed the accumulated deficit had grown by $6 million to $58 million. The system is now so strapped for cash that it is receiving its bimonthly revenue payments from the city ahead of schedule so that schools can cover operating costs. The city paid the school system this month the money that was due through next month, according to the district's chief financial officer, Rose Piedmont.

Rose Piedmont -- who oversaw the budgeting, strategic planning and other financial matters of 260 M&T branches in the Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and District of Columbia region -- will begin her new job today.

Surrounded by lush green vines laden with clusters of grapes ripening in a Harford County vineyard, officials and vintners announced the creation of the Piedmont Wine Trail as Maryland's fourth pathway to fine wines. The trail meanders through scenic areas of northern Baltimore and Harford counties and, if experience from the popularity of other trail ventures proves true, could bring thousands of visitors annually to the eight sites, officials said. The trail will allow vintners to show off their vineyards, offer tastes and give guests insight into the intricacies of winemaking.

Charles Grene reads the Weather Page in Westminster, and he's noticed the subtle, graduated colors we use for Maryland. "The west side of the state is pink, then the color goes to yellow, with the east side of the state shown in green. What do the different colors represent?" he asks. Our graphics folks tell me it's a relief map. The colors indicate elevation above sea level. They're colors commonly used for mountainous, Piedmont and coastal regions. In real life, it's all drought-brown.

People see the name of this movie and get defensive. What's wrong with being a virgin? they ask. Absolutely nothing, and that's part of the point of The 40-Year-Old Virgin, probably the most sweet-spirited sex comedy ever made. It's pretty funny, too. Steve Carell, hilarious as clueless weatherman Brick Tamland in last year's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, scores again in Virgin as ... well, the title pretty much says it all. But the movie isn't about one characterization, or even one character.

Liberty baseball coach Erik Barnes knows his team won't be the same one that won last year's Class 2A state title, but that's all right with him. The Lions graduated 11 seniors and seven starters from the championship team, but Liberty got off to a good start last week when it pulled out a 5-3 victory over Winters Mill in the season opener. Barnes said he's aware that the team lacks experience and lost some key players from last year's group that went 20-3 and captured the state crown.
