The agency that regulates Virginia's fisheries created a summertime crab sanctuary yesterdaystretching nearly 100 miles up the middle of Chesapeake Bay from its mouth at Cape Henry to the Maryland line at the Potomac River. The Virginia Marine Resources Commission approved the sanctuary, which generally follows depths of 35 feet and more, by a 6-1 vote after a hearing in Richmond. It will be in effect from Saturday to Sept. 15 this year and from June 1 to Sept. 15 in following years, said Wilford Kale, spokesman for the commission.

Sweltering over a hot stove is nobody's idea of summertime fun. The good news for those of us who can't stand the heat is that there are plenty of strategies for staying out of the kitchen. The key to no-cook cooking, experts say, is starting with fresh, flavorful ingredients and tampering with them as little as possible. "Summer cooking is about celebrating the fresh produce," says Diane Rossen Worthington, author of "The Taste of Summer"(Chronicle Books, $22.95). "We get that year-round [in Los Angeles]

A Code Orange air quality alert, meaning conditions are unhealthy for sensitive groups, is in effect for much of Maryland on Monday, a relatively rare occurrence outside of the summer months. The alert is because of warming temperatures and a high pressure system that is making the air stagnant over the region, according to the Maryland Department of the Environment. That is causing fine particles to build in the air. That is different than the common air quality alerts issued during summer months, which are most often linked to high levels of ozone pollution, which can be exacerbated by hot weather.

This lightly sweet, low-alcohol (8.5 percent) German riesling is ideal for casual summertime quaffing. Its acidity balances out the sugar so that there's nothing cloying about it. It boasts lively and penetrating flavors of honey, apples, peaches, cherries and minerals, as well as a pleasingly creamy texture. The screw cap makes it convenient for picnics. Serve with spicy fried chicken, Southeast Asian cuisine.

1997 Georges Duboeuf Julienas ($12).This was my favorite of three 1997 Flower Label Beaujolais wines produced by Georges Duboeuf. That's a little surprising because Julienas is usually not as highly regarded as Morgon and Fleurie -- two of the other top-10 subregions within Beaujolais. The Julienas seems a little raw now, but it offers excellent balance, TTC acidity and liveliness along with generous black raspberry fruit. It's a perfect summertime sipping red.Pub Date: 7/01/98@

I was not prepared for the dramatic and clear view of the Bay Bridge that I had on my recent visit to Edgemere. I went in search of the old Bay Shore amusement park, where Baltimore families once traveled by streetcar to spend the day, and I found a delightful summertime oasis, minus the old carousel, roller coaster and bowling alley. And while many of the 1906 park pavilions and rather grand architectural pieces vanished after World War II, enough survives to satisfy anyone with an amateur's interest in archaeology.

Restaurants in Canton, Towson and Roland Park are offering new menus items and promotions. For its first summer, Verde in Canton is introducing new menu items - they've doubled the number of Neapolitan-style pizzas - a line-up of new cocktails and a weekday happy hour. Among the new pizza offerings are the "Granchio," a homage to Maryland topped with homemade mozzarella, lump crab meat, roasted corn, leeks, fennel and chives, and the "Verdura Delizia," with smoked buffalo mozzarella, roasted butternut squash cream, zucchini, orated red peppers and basil.

Jim Southward, captain of the Harbor Queen, warned his passengers politely and then sounded one long and three short blasts of his very loud horn. "Draw up the gangplank. Cast off," he called to the crew. Yoga classes don't usually start this way. This was yoga on a boat. A very large boat. The double-decker Harbor Queen, celebrating its 41st birthday this year, makes several 40-minute circuits of the Annapolis harbor each day in the summer. But it is usually filled with tourists or schoolchildren on a field trip.

One of the most appealing things about liquor is its ability to absorb flavors. Whether bacon, fruit or oak, the process of infusion can make any run-of-the-mill vodka a taste sensation, given the right proportions and enough time. While leather-infused bourbon may seem like an unapproachable or acquired taste (it does exist, for the record), you can never go wrong with a good old fashioned fruit infusion. Many drinkeries around the Baltimore area have their own varieties. In Federal Hill, Mother's Grille has the Summertime Infusion.

1996 Callaway Chenin Blanc, Temecula ($7).All hail a perfect summertime white! It's lively, fruity, fresh, racy and -- best of all -- cheap. Kudos to Callaway for being one of the few California wineries to get its chenin blanc of the previous vintage to market in time for the season when its honeyed, peachy, melony flavors can be best appreciated. Buy this charming wine by the case and finish it before Labor Day.Pub Date: 6/08/97

School is most certainly be the last thing in mind for youngsters these days — the school year just ended a couple of weeks ago. But we hope school enters the minds of parents this month, as the future of the Baltimore County Board of Education might well be determined while classes aren't in session. This week begins a series of three public hearings designed to gather public input on the issue of the school board's selection process. A task force formed by the county's delegation to Annapolis — formally dubbed the Task Force on the Selection Process, Accountability and Professionalism of the Baltimore County Board of Education — will host the sessions, beginning July 6, around the county.

One way to counter the heat is with a jolt of cool contemporary art, and exhibits at two commercial venues — C. Grimaldis Gallery in Mount Vernon, Jordan Faye Contemporary in Federal Hill — conveniently provide such relief. For good measure, the Jordan Faye gallery is also throwing a block party Saturday afternoon. "That seemed like a great summer thing to do," says founder and owner Jordan Faye Block. This sort of gesture has helped make the gallery a good fit for the neighborhood since opening 11 months ago in a handsome 1880s building that originally housed a branch of the Enoch Pratt Library.
