In tribute to Peanuts cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, who lived and worked in Santa Rosa, Calif., for four decades, the city has painted the town Brown. Fifty-five large sculptures of Charlie Brown stand sentry throughout Santa Rosa, offering proof that although he was a loser in love, baseball and everything else, Charlie Brown wins the game of attracting tourists. This June, after the installation of the statues, the number of people stopping in at the Santa Rosa Convention and Visitors Bureau increased by more than 50 percent to a record 6,660, said Mo Renfro, the bureau's executive director.

Santa Rosa Island, in the Gulf Islands National Seashore off the Florida Panhandle, does not look like much of a battleground, even though the 170-year-old Fort Pickens guards its western end. But this tiny stretch of sand has become a new focus in a long-running and intense debate about how people can coexist with nature on the coast. The island is a flat sandy barrier whose dunes have been virtually destroyed in recent storms. Its lone road, County Road 399, had to be moved after Hurricane Opal in 1995, and it was damaged by subsequent storms.

This is the time of year when college football coaches love to boast about how many high school All-Americans they have landed, talk proudly about 40-yard dash times and brag about bench-press and squat totals. Dunbar's Garry Smith wasn't part of the big-time talk. Smith, 7 years older than most other recruits, quietly signed a letter of intent at his Northeast Baltimore home last Wednesday morning at 8 and faxed it to the Temple University football office. "I have one thing to say to those All-Americans: `Show me,' " said Smith, 25. "I plan to play in `The League' [NFL]

MILTON, Fla. -- Gun control has never been the most popular of concepts in the Florida Panhandle, and Santa Rosa County is no exception to that rule.So, to protest what they see as recent encroachments by the federal government on a citizen's right to bear arms, the county government here has established a militia and made every able-bodied man, woman and child a member.The action has been ridiculed by gun control groups that say the county measure is based on an erroneous reading of the Constitution.

Barbara Donaldson from Dandridge, Tenn., used to have a recipe for scones that she got from the side panel of a box of cranberry-orange muffin mix made by the Duncan Hines Co. Company representatives informed her that Duncan Hines does not make the mix anymore and that the recipe is no longer available. Fortunately, Brenda Druen from Gore, Va., had the recipe. She also discovered a cranberry-orange muffin mix made by Krusteaz that she has found to be an acceptable substitute for the Duncan Hines mix. "It isn't quite as tasty as the Duncan Hines but it is fat-free," she says.
