The music from Carroll County's nationally released anti-heroin video will soon become the foundation of a music video that organizers hope will become just as widely distributed. Eldersburg musician Bobby Hird, a guitarist, singer and songwriter who spent 17 years with the popular rock band Crack the Sky, wrote two songs for "Heroin Kills." The stark video about heroin addiction was created almost two years ago by Residents Attacking Drugs, a nonprofit group of concerned citizens that formed after 15-year-old Liam O'Hara of Westminster snorted a fatal dose of heroin.

In the recent commentary, "HABC: Selling off and selling out" (May 1), a great deal of speculation was offered regarding the Housing Authority of Baltimore City's (HABC) participation in the new federal Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. RAD is the federal government's program to preserve otherwise at-risk public housing for very low-income residents. The federal government has under-funded the public housing program for years, which has resulted in the need for $800 million (in Baltimore alone)

What happens when a fish out of water doesn't even realize he's a fish? Such is the unrecognized quandary facing young Brad Gluckman, a privileged Malibu teen who sees himself as the rap-master bad boy of California's Gold Coast. Not only is he way too white and way too rich to have much in the way of street cred; he's also just about the world's worst rapper. But none of that matters to the genially oblivious Brad - or B-Rad, as he'd rather be known - who's talked the talk for far too long to let anything get in the way of the soft-core gangsta persona he's built for himself in the 'Bu. Malibu's Most Wanted mines a well-worn comedic vein, but does so with a consistent good humor and surprisingly deft touch.

Skin protection is of the utmost importance during summer, whether you're on the beach or by the pool. Although it's a bit cooler at the shore and you may escape the really scorching heat, you can't be too careful. There are plenty of options for sunscreen in many different SPFs, UVA and UVB protections, but if you really want to accent your vacation with a little color, try Zinka sunblock. Now I understand that being protected from the sun is not about looking cool, but you can look cool and still protect your skin by rocking Zinka, a zinc oxide sunblock that comes in 10 different colors.

Editor: On Dec. 5, I read the Havre de Grace City Council agenda. Under new business, it read "RAD loan approval - Mary Martin Ltd. " The amount of the loan, $100,000, was not posted. At this point it appeared that the loan approval was predetermined. Despite what has been written in the Dec. 5 city council minutes, I fully support the RAD program, although I do agree with The Record editorial of Dec. 16 stating the city should probably not be in the banking business.

When Linda Auerback walked into Westminster High School on Jan. 12, 1998, she was stunned to find students in the hallways with tears streaming down their faces, some dashing toward guidance counselors' offices, some pouring into the main office to get permission to go home early. A 15-year-old schoolmate, Liam O'Hara, had died of a heroin overdose. "I have never seen anything so chaotic in my life," Auerback said. She had gone to the school that day to pick up her daughter, Lacey, who had been dating Liam.

This year's best Halloween costume award goes to Johnny Rad's Johnny Rad's , the super friendly Upper Fells Point pizzeria and restaurant dressed up for Halloween as Kelly's, the neighborhood watering hole that preceded it. Rich Pugh and company put up the old Kelly's sign and the staff wore Kelly's T-shirts. Best of all was one of Johnny Rad's accessories -- for the first time ever on Johnny Rad's beer list -- Coor's Light, a Kelly's staple.

The hook is simple: Five, all-male, musically inclined Lady Gaga fans convert the pop queen's four-on-the-floor anthems into glam rock and name it Rad Bromance. It's a flashy act, but strip away the glitter and lead singer Ryan Shtainhorn's skin-tight outfit, and what remains is a Philadelphia tribute band able to morph Gaga songs into a hybrid of flamboyant showmanship, pop-punk breakdowns and enough dance-thump to get a crowd moving. Rad Bromance's Monster Balls Tour stops by The Ottobar Saturday, marking the band's first all-ages show in Maryland.

I am fond of skateboarders. One of my sons used to be one. When our young skater used to slip away from home, my wife and I knew chances were good that he was either at "the statue" in front of the Lyric Opera House or at "the bowl" in Lansdowne, working on his tricks. In those years, I learned that although many skaters looked "hard," they were good souls. But until I visited Johnny Rad's , I did not know that skaters were so fond of vegetables. Johnny Rad's, named after a character in a skateboard movie, sits in the 2100 block of Eastern Ave., next door to a firehouse and across the street from a duckpin bowling alley.

Opened a couple weeks ago by two former skaters, Johnny Rad's pays tribute to the skateboarding scene without feeling gimmicky or patronizing. It's a neighborhood bar with a short but killer beer list, a solid happy hour and unexpectedly cool decor. If you went to Fells Point in the '80s and '90s, chances are, you'd see a pack of young skateboarders doing tricks in Broadway Square. It makes sense that years later, after the kids grew up, there would be a bar in the 'hood that celebrated skateboarding and underground culture.

After all, he was fired as a page at ABC for bothering Tony Danza.
