Once again this spring I'm doing my part to help jump-start the economy by buying every raffle ticket thrust at me.L I bought a raffle ticket for a 1992 Cadillac Sedan de Ville.I bought a raffle ticket for a Mitsubishi big-screen TV.I bought a raffle ticket for a 22-foot speedboat, a CD player and a Cal Ripken Jr. autographed baseball bat.I even bought a raffle ticket for a camper that sleeps four -- and my idea of roughing it is a Holiday Inn without cable.Understand, there is absolutely no chance of me winning any of these prizes.

It's time to get a team of friends together, collect pledges, lace up those rented bowling shoes, and settle in for an afternoon of bowling on Feb. 22, from 3 to 6:30 p.m. at Forest Hill Lanes, to benefit homeless and neglected animals at the Humane Society of Harford County. You don't have to be a professional bowler to join in and raise money for the animals. Anyone can participate, and the key to success is collecting donations! Prior to the event, either print a paper form to collect donations or go to http://www.harfordshelter.org and fund raise online.

It's not summer, but the Baltimore Orioles have the attention of their fans. Quite a few of those fans will be delighted at the appearance of the Oriole Bird, who will visit Freedom Elementary School on Thursday as part of the promotion of the new "Cal Bars" candy bars (for Cal Ripken, whose picture is on the candy wrapper)."We were hoping that the Bird would come," said Tina Crockett, fund raising chairperson for the school PTA, "but we didn't receive confirmation until this weekend. Because we weren't sure we didn't tell the kids, so an awful lot of them will be very surprised."

In Fells Point, everyone knows Todd Conner's is a Steelers bar. Nearby, Sticky Rice Bmore is a true-purple Ravens-supporting establishment.
