A well-known Annapolis lawyer was found guilty yesterday of shoplifting an $11.29 bottle of pain reliever from Sam's Club - potentially putting his career in jeopardy. M. Willson Offutt IV, 50, was convicted of misdemeanor theft and sentenced to pay $500 in District Court for stealing a bottle of Aleve from the store outside Annapolis on July 10. Offutt, whose law practice is in financing and related fields, was acquitted of a second-degree assault charge stemming from allegations that he tried to hit a security guard with his shopping cart after he was stopped at the store's door.

I am writing this to a woman who met my mother in the Shop Rite in Aberdeen on Jan. 8: I want to tell you how much my Mom told me about you. She said you were so nice to her at the fish counter. Now me, being the skeptical one of the family, I thought your intentions of bringing back my Mom's shopping cart, while claiming you took it by mistake, was ridiculous. I told her you were attempting to steal her purse when she was distracted. My Mom thinks everyone is nice and kind. Did you know that my Mom takes care of my almost 90-year-old father full time and on her own?

The last time Johns Hopkins freshman Gracie Golden rode in a shopping cart before Saturday was during her toddler years in a grocery store - and those carts weren't covered in duct tape or pushed at breakneck speed while she held on for dear life. Golden, a member of student radio station WJHU, joined her colleagues and other groups of students in Saturday's Red Bull Chariot Races, an uncanny but festive collegiate event that the energy drink maker holds on campuses nationwide each year.

As Kris Benson finished getting dressed at his locker, he fired his towel toward a shopping cart in the middle of the clubhouse and overshot his target by a few feet. "That had some carry on it," he said. So did everything else he threw. Benson kept leaving the ball up and over the plate, and the Angels reached him for four runs and nine hits in five innings. "It's just a matter of making an adjustment before my next start," he said. roch.kubatko@baltsun.com For more "Roch Around the Clock," go to baltimoresun.

I would like to respond to your editorial "A Junkyard Dog" (Feb. 23) pertaining to the issue of scrap metal dealers buying stolen metal. I am the president of a local 93 year old scrap metal company that buys metal from business, industry and government only. Our exposure to stolen metal is non-existent. However, I would like to address the issue in defense of the integrity of the majority of the scrap metal dealers in the Baltimore area who do engage in retail buying. I can say without reservation that the overwhelming majority of these companies are operated with the utmost integrity and do everything possible not to buy stolen metal and to cooperate with law enforcement agencies.

There hasn't been too much to do this winter except go shopping - and maybe houseclean the pantry, too, which I knocked off this week, thanks to all the stuff I've recently acquired. My father and I took off for the new Wal-Mart, new to us at least, in deep South Baltimore, not so far from where he was born. After a couple of tries, we located the city's first branch of the well-known retailer. Who would have thought that this huge variety store would be built on what I consider prime waterfront property?

The ``snow drops'' arrived two days ago: 600 extra loaves of bread and 600 extra cartons of milk.By noon yesterday, Barbara Rogers had four of those loaves and two of those cartons -- and a slew of other foul-weather provisions -- in her shopping cart at the Giant supermarket at the Rotunda in North Baltimore.All over the region, shoppers scrambled to stock their cupboards and refrigerators in anticipation of the snowstorm expected to hit here today.More than a dozen people were lined up outside Giant when it opened at 9 a.m., unusual for a New Year's Day, when holiday revelers tend to be home asleep or sipping coffee.

Nothing says Christmas to me like the words "free shipping. " The last hurdle on my way to full-online shopping has been cleared by retailers who got the message I sent last year: I am not paying for shipping. I know, I know. I am paying for shipping. I'm sure the shipping costs have found their way into the price of that sweater, that DVD or that set of monogrammed beer mugs, but at least it isn't a nasty surprise waiting with my "shopping cart. " Retailers surveyed shoppers and found that they were very happy with their online shopping experiences — until it was time to check out. Then many of them, like me, bailed when they saw what the convenience was costing.

We get busy. We have work to do. We have long days crowded with chores and commitments, and we get caught up in things that seem in the moment so important - a project, a decision, a purchase, a deadline. And this is your life, and it moves faster than you expected it would. Before you know it, you're not a kid anymore; your parents are gone and you're the only adult in the room. Everyone experiences this differently, and at different times. Some of you might have lost a parent when you were teenagers, or in your 20s, or 30s. Or maybe you're in your 50s now and just getting used to the absence of your mother or father, or a beloved aunt or grandparents - the elders you thought would be around forever.

When Katherine Kim of Ellicott City goes grocery shopping with her 4-year-old son Jonathan, she keeps any whining and food requests to a minimum by telling him in advance what they're going to buy. She typically picks up ice cream last, giving Jonathan something to look forward to as their shopping cart glides past shelves stuffed with cookies, potato chips and sweet cereals. Still, she said, Jonathan is partial to Kraft Macaroni & Cheese shaped like characters in the "SpongeBob" television show or "Cars" movies.

Despite what numerous drivers running errands on Saturday afternoon seemed to believe, a handicapped parking permit is not a family pass for choice parking. At the Glen Burnie Wal-Mart, Cpl. Eric Trumbauer snagged two such drivers at once. One woman, teary-eyed and apologetic, said she used her husband's handicapped placard because she was only running in to get dog food. The other, 31-year-old Trina Mendez, was less remorseful. "There's nowhere to [expletive] park," Mendez said, her painted toenails resting in the window as Trumbauer wrote a $140 citation.

My first foray into Christmas shopping this year couldn't have started on a more promising note. It wasn't at just any shopping center; I was at the Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis, only the Everest of its ilk, the largest collection in the country of stores and amusements. It was a couple of days before Thanksgiving, so I didn't even have Black Friday-addled crowds to fight. As a sales clerk at Club Monaco told me, "It's the calm before the storm. " The racks and shelves seemed freshly stocked rather than picked over.

Sherrie Koen got pushed around at a Toys "R" Us store on Black Friday a year ago. Someone ran into her with a shopping cart. Someone else grabbed a toy out of her hands. No way that was going to happen this year. Instead, bright and early Thursday, Koen was standing outside The Mall in Columbia waiting for Sears to open, the first time it had done so on Thanksgiving Day. "I was very excited that I wasn't going to get trampled," said Koen, a building contractor from Millerstown, Pa., four days after being released from treatment for a back injury that she did not want to exacerbate.

Two blocks from Pimlico Race Course, with cars' horns beeping and radios blaring and hawkers hustling their wares, an amazing thing is happening on Preakness Day.You can hear the click of a camera.It clicks on Greenspring Avenue below Northern Parkway, with traffic stalled about a block from the track. It clicks as thousands lucky enough to find street parking are lugging their picnic stuff to the afternoon's events, many in metal shopping carts pushed by teen-age entrepreneurs offering their services for a few bucks.

I was walking along Maryland Avenue the other day and scarcely ever could have envisioned a Walmart there, in my own neighborhood. I thought of a little stone chapel that sat once on the corner and considered the streetcar barn that morphed into Anderson Automotive. Even Anderson's once-premier offering, the Oldsmobile, is on the obsolete list. Now the automotive dealer is leaving the corner, and we are promised a Lowe's and a Walmart. It really should not be a surprise.
