" The weather is colder at the same time that the troubled economy has altered the living conditions of many area families, causing greater needs in many communities. The Rotary Club of Hunt Valley and two financial services firms, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and UBS, have combined to make the winter months more bearable for area children. Through a program known as Operation Warm, they have banded together to purchase new coats that will be given to needy children before the onset of another harsh winter.

A half-hour before the 5th Regiment Armory doors opened, the vestibule was packed with folks, noses pressed against inner door windows. Inside the huge hall, rows of meat slicers and mountains of bread loaves stood at the ready. Getting a head start, a flank of oyster shuckers pried open the gnarled shells revealing a treasure trove of glistening gastronomic jewels ripe for plunder. At noon, the Rotary Club of Baltimore's annual oyster roast officially opened and the charge began. Some 2,750 folks poured into the armory -- arming themselves with shellfish, pit-beef sandwiches and buckets of beer.

Back in the early 1960s, Americans had to learn a new level of tolerance. People of color would no longer take a back seat to anyone. In the late 1960s and '70s, we again had to learn tolerance as young folks let their hair grow and voiced opinions on national and international policy. We called them hippies. Now we are back in school again. Gay people are demanding their rights. So what are we to do? We could quit the Boy Scouts, the Lions Club, The Optimists Club, The Rotary Club, etc. No more public pools, libraries, churches, public schools and so on. But what good would come of all that?
