What's going faster than a speeding bullet in Union Bridge?Raffle tickets that give residents the chance to win one of 20 rifles, said Town Clerk-Treasurer Kathleen D. Kreimer.The raffle, which began last week, is a fund-raiser for the new town office building."I think it is so popular because we have so many hunters out here," said Ms. Kreimer. "We've sold chances already that have cleared over $1,200."The Town Hall Funding Committee bought 20 rifles -- including Winchesters, Remingtons, Stogers, Brownings and Rugers -- from the Gun Cellar on Main Street for about $6,500, Ms. Kreimer said.

WHENEVER I look in the mirror, the face staring back belongs to a man who has never won a raffle in his entire life.He has never won a late-model Cadillac. Never won a 27-inch color TV. Never won three matching pieces of Samsonite luggage. Never won a basket of cheer.Never even won a turkey.Think about that for a minute: Here's a man who NEVER EVEN WON A TURKEY. EVERYBODY wins a turkey. I know 6-, 7-year-olds who have won so many turkeys they have to stuff them under their beds because there's no more room in the freezer.

THE SCENE was Christmas Eve in a restaurant, about two hours before the youngest two offspring were due in at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. We'd finished dinner early because the restaurant wasn't crowded. What to do?"How about the lights at Sandy Point?" says he."Wouldn't the kids [ages 19 and 23] like to see it while they're here?""I doubt it."The scene shifts to Sandy Point State Park at the Bay Bridge about 40 minutes later."We should have brought the kids," says he.Anne Arundel Medical Center's Lights on the Bay, the first of what certainly should become an annual spectacle for area residents and visitors, is truly a delight.

I was at Maryland Hall last week getting tickets for "Lyndon" (reviews have Laurence Luckinbill's performance right up there with James Whitmore's "Give 'Em Hell, Harry"), and happened to pick up a brochure promoting the Coastweeks '92 photography contest. I was excited about being able to promote it here, until I noticed that the deadline for submissions was Oct. 1. Now I can only say: watch for the winning entries to be displayed in county offices and libraries. But it still stands as a good example: If you're making something happen in the Annapolis/South County area, let me know about it early so I can help spread the word.
