For folks who want to partake in Sailabration by water this weekend, expect tight quarters. "An unprecedented number of boats are anticipated. We could have thousands of recreational boaters all trying to come to one location," said Coast Guard Cmdr. John Burns, who has been part of the planning team for the War of 1812 commemoration. Here's what the armada will find: Big sections of Baltimore's harbor will be off-limits to pleasure boats, and many others are too shallow and debris-filled, too deep to anchor or too far from the action.

If you believe everything you read, you'd think film festivals were more about celebrities, studio deals and the sartorial necessity du jour than the rather scruffy business of sitting in the dark and watching movies.To really be a part of Cannes, you need the right invitation. To truly enjoy Sundance, you need the right Prada parka. It's all about what Miramax picks up and for how much. Or so the increasingly agog entertainment media would have us believe.In reality, festivals are pretty simple.

This poor economy has destroyed any hopes of a level playing field for blue collar, working class people like me. Only possessing a high school diploma and a skilled trade (barber), I knew that over my lifetime that I would probably not earn the same salary as my white collar counterparts. Therefore around age 20 (I am 43 now) I acquired a personal financial planner so I could at least make it to retirement age as secure as white collar individuals who earned higher wages during than their work years.

As an example of how opponents of health care reform have been able to twist facts to scare older Americans, look no further than a comment made to President Barack Obama during a recent town hall meeting. Mary of North Carolina told the president she was worried about rumors she's heard about health care legislation. "I have been told there is a policy in there that everyone that's Medicare age will be visited and told to decide how they wish to die," Mary said. "This bothers me greatly."

Kelly asked us for help with a familiar problem - getting a 2-year-old ready for a new sibling. I turned to Marian Edelman Borden, author of The Baffled Parent's Guide to Sibling Rivalry. Borden says that in the first few weeks after a new baby arrives, parents should expect both delightful moments when the kids interact beautifully, and moments that aren't so pretty. It's all normal. Here are some of her e-mailed suggestions: * "Accept the inevitable. As much as you want to create an instant loving bond between your children, there will be times when your older one (and eventually your younger child)

Harford County's library system has made budget cuts, managing to trim operating costs without decreasing services, and will move forward on two long-planned capital projects in Whiteford and Churchville. The 11-branch system has seen an increase in circulation, which its staff attributes in part to the sagging economy. "When the economy turns down, library use goes up," said Audra L. Caplan, library director. "We have the resources, especially the free computers that can help with job searches.

Illinois financial planner Mary Anne Ehlert says she started getting more calls after Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was chosen as a vice-presidential candidate. Ehlert is an expert on financial planning for children with disabilities. Palin is the mother of a son with Down syndrome. Palin's candidacy raised the profile of children with special needs and got more of their parents thinking about what planning they need to do to secure their child's future, Ehlert says. She says parents called to ask, "Am I supposed to be doing something different?"

Washington -- Earlier this semester, when Maryland guards D.J. Strawberry and Mike Jones left the university in pursuit of professional basketball careers, they followed in the footsteps of dozens of former players - including ex-Terp Len Elmore, who in 1974 skipped out of College Park early to join the NBA. "My admission has been always that I kind of blew off my second semester way back in 1974 in order to prepare myself for the pros," said Elmore, who...

It seemed like a good marketing tool for the NFL to launch a series of Thursday night games on the NFL Network this season, but one month into the prime-time project, coaches would rather walk across burning coals than play on three days' rest. The quick turnaround creates a competitive imbalance and makes players more susceptible to injury, say coaches who have participated in the late-season TV series.

TRAVEL
By New York Times News Service | November 26, 2006
My wife and I, both 73, were ousted from our assigned seats in the emergency exit row when we checked in for an American Airlines flight from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Miami because we are "seniors." We are both in top shape - we exercise, lift weights and play tennis. You fell afoul of the emergency exit rule followed by many airlines in which exit rows are reserved for able-bodied passengers who would be capable of helping to open the doors in the event of an emergency. Ageism has extended to a presumption that older travelers are invariably infirm.
