On Nov. 1, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (also known as food stamps) will be reduced, creating ramifications beyond the already incomprehensible fact that more than one in eight central Maryland residents (and one in five children) is food insecure. The impact of these cuts will ripple throughout our communities and our economy well into the future. The Sun wisely pointed out in its Oct. 30 editorial ("Hunger gets a boost" that retailers, distributors, truck drivers and particularly farmers will be hurting as a result of the SNAP reductions.

Towson and Penn have met just twice, with each team winning once. Since opening the season with six consecutive wins at home, Towson has dropped two straight. Penn is 3-2 on the road this season. No. 9 Penn (7-3) has won four straight games and is assured of a berth in the Ivy League tournament. The offense is in the middle of the Division I pack after averaging 9.8 goals so far this year. Senior midfielder Zack Losco leads the team in points with 24 and is the only Quakers player to have at least one point in every game this year.

U.S. Army Capt. Benjamin Harrow, who lost both legs in a mine explosion in Afghanistan and spoke to the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team on Thursday night as part of the program's partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project, delivered what coach Dave Pietramala described as the perfect message for a team in a three-game losing streak before Friday's night's 13-8 victory over No. 19 Albany at Homewood Field. “One of our keys each week is we focus on what we can control,” Pietramala said.

"It just snaps together?" I asked the salesman, pointing at the floor model of a simple plastic desk, just big enough to hold a computer and keyboard, a cup of coffee, a sweet roll, some note paper and a telephone -- the tools of my trade."Right," the salesman said. "Just snap it together or unsnap it to take it apart.""It doesn't have bolts, screws or anything like that?""Nope. All it has are grooves and tongues. Just slip one part into another and, pop, it fits into place. See, here? Got a nice tray for the keyboard that slides in and out."

My sandy-haired, gap-toothed daughter likes to snap my picture on a cell phone as I'm eating my bran flakes in the morning and brooding over the front page of the Times, over which there is now more to brood than ever. She is 8, and she looks stunning in pictures - and I look stunned, as if someone had just clubbed me with a baseball bat. "Smile," she says, and I try, but still I look like an ugly white person who is fixing to die. My grandmother hated cameras, and we have the pictures to prove it. She stands by the back door of the little white frame house, on her way to pick beans into a pail, wearing a loose cotton dress, her hair up in a bun, a few strands loose, wire-rim glasses, cotton stockings and old shoes, and she gives the camera a sour look that says, "Oh for pity's sake.

WHEN YOU are young, tender and intriguing, almost everybody wants a piece of you. But as you become older, leathery and taken for granted, you need help to stay appealing. That is how it works with life and with green beans. Early in the summer, when the green beans first appeared in my garden, they were fetching. Their skin was so smooth, their centers so soft, their flavor so clean that I succumbed to the temptation to pop a few into my mouth, right off the vine. But as time marched on, the sun bore down and the novelty wore off. Picking the beans, once a labor of love, became a chore, one I often put off. As my interest in the beans waned, that of the bugs' increased.

Baltimore neighborhood leaders will be meeting tomorrow night with city planners to hear about ways that they can get involved with the future development of their communities. Using an approach they call "cluster analysis," planners hope to encourage Baltimore civic leaders to think more about the city as a whole rather than as a collection of individual neighborhoods, said Israel C. Patoka, director of the Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods. Cluster analysis is a method of collecting and evaluating demographic data from city neighborhoods.

For decades, Kay McConnell and her family joined those who lace up skates and take to Lake Roland in Robert E. Lee Park when winter freezes ice over the former reservoir. The McConnells' three children were on the ice as young as toddlers, one of them using an old sled as a walker of sorts. After measuring the ice to be at least 5 inches thick, with at least five days of sub-freezing temperatures, neighbors around the lake's north end would flock to the ice - so long as snowfall didn't make the surface too bumpy.

The Navy men's basketball team has dropped its last three games - a streak culminating with a 63-48 loss to UMBC Monday night. And coach Ed DeChellis said he knows what has contributed to the setbacks. DeChellis said the Midshipmen's defense and rebounding have been less than stellar in losses to Bryant on Dec. 14, Northern Kentucky on Dec. 21 and UMBC. The Bulldogs shot 50.9 percent (28-of-55) and collected 44 rebounds to Navy's 33 in a 90-80 victory in overtime. The Norse converted 51.0 percent (25-of-49)

Kick the ball.It sounds easy enough, but the Ravens managed to turn those chores into something akin to rocket science yesterday.Forget the dropped touchdown pass by Jermaine Lewis, the dropped interception by Rod Woodson.The lasting image of the Ravens' 20-13, season-opening, stadium-opening loss to Pittsburgh will be that of punter Kyle Richardson chasing after Harper Le Bel's errant snap, a crazy play that ended with Richardson tackled on the Ravens' 5-yard line.
