100 Years Ago Sheep vs. dogs "It is reported that Mr. Harold Hopkins had a large number of sheep killed by dogs last Sunday morning.  "Wanted: A woman to cook, wash and clean, and remain at night, good wages. Mrs. James Steward. Hill St. Ellicott City.  "Wanted: Two good farm and garden hands $8.00 per week, good house. All year around employment. Apply to B.M. Baker, Ingleside" I wonder whether that $8 is for two farm workers or for one, probably for two, $8 and a house would most likely be too much of a windfall for one person.

Chef Brett Arnold knows the name of his Glenwood restaurant can lead diners who are unfamiliar with his casual American fare to assume he runs a barbecue joint. While it's true that Smokin' Hot Bar and Grille makes a dozen barbecue sauces and sells a lot of smoked chicken wings - more than 5,000 the day the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII - there's more to the eatery than the name suggests. The restaurant offers entrees that include seafood, beef, pasta and, as an occasional special, lamb.

Like the proverbial "wolf in sheep's clothing," a Texas energy company is promoting a massive Eastern Shore wind farm as an environmentally friendly "green" project ("Eastern Shore wind project confronts eagles, Navy," April 29). In reality, this project will kill large numbers of birds, such as bald eagles and ospreys, which are attracted to the lights necessary for aircraft safety at night. Why do our politicians fall for these projects that are supposed to improve the economy?

Matt Claeys was pretty much born a 4-Her. He grew up in Henry County, Ill., once the hog capital of the nation. As a kid, he had his own beef cattle project.But here at the Maryland State Fair, Claeys is judging the 4-H sheep competition. He evaluates market lambs pretty much as if they were guys auditioning for the Chippendales."I like 'em to be heavily muscled, with the right shape of muscle," he says. "I like 'em to be lean. I like 'em to be well-balanced and structurally correct -- so they look attractive."

Someone forgot to tell Patrick Beille that French guys are supposed to make wine, not beer. Hard cider would fit the French profile more than beer. But that's what the fellow does - he makes beer. The story of how Beille ended up in a brewery in the Waverly section of Baltimore starts in an idyll of the Old World, a little farm near a medieval village. I know: Farming is hard, especially as a start-up. But when you're young, daring, energetic and ambitious, then what this fellow had near Martel, in Midi-Pyrenees, sounds too awesome to leave.

John R. and Karen Fleishell's sheep are not disturbing the peace, the Howard County Animal Matters Hearing Board has decided.The board ruled in favor of the Daisy Road sheep owners on Fleishell's appeal of a complaint brought by his neighbor, Bruce Snyder.Snyder filed an affidavit with the county animal control division in June, complaining that the sheep bleated loudly late at night and during early morning hours. The board mailed its decision, made last week to Snyder and Fleishell, but has not released it publicly.

Consider, for a moment, a sheep."A sheep is dumb, docile, stubborn, contrary and smelly," says Jack Price, a cowboy hat atop his head, cowboy boots on his feet and a gray mustache streaming down either side of his mouth like a spilled milkshake.Mr. Price, 73, is a retired sheep breeder. For 40 years he raised Hampshire sheep, sometimes 200 to 300 head at a time, on his 90-acre farm near Westminster.At the 20th annual Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, which opened yesterday and continues today at the Howard County Fairgrounds next to Interstate 70 at Route 32, Mr. Price provides commentary -- in his Southern drawl, with his wry sense of humor -- for the working sheep-dog demonstrations.

Good day, Bravo fanatics! Who else was excited to finally have a fun, informative episode of RHOM? Thought so! Most of the ladies had very limited screen time in tonight's episode, so let's get them out of the way, shall we? We shall start with the lady least seen tonight -- Adriana. There was no storyline progression with her tonight -- well, not in the RHOM sense. Tonight, Adriana shares how much her son, Alex, has grown as she sends him off on his first formal dance with a friend.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: RADDLED There is a connection between sheep and looking overtired. Be patient. The word comes from ruddle , a red pigment used for marking sheep. Raddled originally meant "colored red," then came to be associated with rouge, and then with women wearing rouge to conceal, with varying success, the ravages of time.

The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the … wait, those aren't sheep, they're alpacas. And those rangy bovines look an awful lot like bison. And what about those long-legged turkeys running loose in the barnyard? St. Mary's County, site of Maryland's first capital, has long been economically dependent on agriculture, and until a few decades ago, tobacco was king. One look at the farms scattered about the countryside, though, makes it clear that change has taken place. Living green, eating fresh and appreciating local heritage have resulted in a rise in agritourism in this Southern Maryland county, where visitors can experience on a personal level the trials and triumphs of unconventional approaches to farming.

Clayton, Dana and Edward got a crash course this weekend in where wool sweaters come from — and it's not the store. The first strand of the story was told to the Pickett children beside a field where a pack of border collies were corralling sheep and moving them in and out of pens. It was a well-attended demonstration at the 38th annual Sheep & Wool Festival, the largest such event in the country with thousands of participants. It's part marketplace for spinners and knitters, part family outing and part instruction from the Maryland Sheep Breeders Association.
