A new treatment for malaria - which experts say kills a child in Africa every 30 seconds - might lie in the dregs of medicinal tea formerly produced by an Ellicott City woman's company. Bad flavor might have undermined the lasting success of Diane Winn's first anti-malarial drug, a product called Phyto-Laria tea bags, which her company made until five years ago from the root of an African vine. But now, the only thing Winn hopes to taste is success as a flavorless capsule form of the same drug soon heads for clinical testing and, if approved, a product launch by year's end. Not bad for someone who graduated in 1959 with a degree in biology from tiny Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pa., and who envisioned a long career behind a microscope or as a medical illustrator.

As 7-year-old Zara Cheek packed her bags for her first sleep-away camp this summer, she found herself looking forward to more than just swimming, going on hikes and eating S'mores for two glorious weeks. To her, the experience meant a chance to live like a normal kid for a while - and even, quite possibly, to help thousands of others afflicted with the illness that has shaped her life. Zara, who lives in West Baltimore and started third grade this fall, is one of about 2 million Americans who suffer from Type 1 diabetes, a chronic and potentially lethal disorder of the pancreas that leaves the body unable to make insulin or turn blood sugar into the energy it needs.

COLLEGE PARK - The players on Maryland's men's and women's soccer teams can't look at their respective opponents Friday any different than they have others they have faced this season. But the Terps understand the significance that these games hold. When the 12th-ranked men's team faces Michigan in Ann Arbor and the women's team plays host to Rutgers at Ludwig Field, it will mark Maryland's first in-conference competition of any kind as a member of the Big Ten. The school officially joined the league in July after 61 years in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Most kids like sweets, but for some children there might be an underlying cause for that affinity. A new study finds there might be a link between sweet preference in children and a family history of alcoholism, plus the child's feelings of depression. The study in the journal Addiction shows correlation, not causation, and the researchers also note that this penchant for sweetness doesn't necessarily mean the children who preferred the sweeter taste will eventually become alcoholics.

I believe it was Samuel Johnson who said that puns are the lowest form of humor. The Sun seems to relish puns. The headline concerning the death of two girls when a train derailed in Ellicott City ("Derailed lives," Aug. 22) was the most tasteless pun yet. Shame on you! Betty Hoatson, Butler

Publishing KAL's most recent cartoon was in very poor taste. He singles out both Joe Paterno and the Catholic church for ridicule in the same breath. Unless he had somehow shown the entire Penn State community collectively, he was way off base. The Catholic Church collectively is not at fault for the sins of a minuscule few, and of course the same can be said for Penn State. Richard L. Lelonek, Baltimore

The Supreme Court's decision in the Westboro Baptist case follows our constitutional protections for free speech. Why don't people exercise that right by picketing there? Go to Westboro! Same-sex couples and veterans should join in a show of support for slain soldiers and denounce this bigotry with many rallies right on Westboro's doorsteps. Aren't there VFW's in Kansas? Where are they? Freedom of speech goes both ways. Ron Kuhns, Nottingham

New advances in wine technology are great news for people who thrive on variety and experimentation. With more Baltimore-area restaurants adopting an array of advanced wine-dispensing systems - from kegs to devices that allow wine to be poured without removing the cork - it's easier than ever to imbibe without committing to a single bottle. These new systems have a cool factor that makes wine geeks go nuts. But the technology is for more than just show. Implementing these systems translates into more options for customers, cost savings for restaurant owners and environmental benefits for everyone.

Netdao Yutakon of Nashville, Tenn., was still shaking her head, getting used to the lightness two days after her waist-length hair was chopped off to meet Naval Academy regulations in time for her freshman year. "It was like losing a best friend," said Yutakon, an 18-year-old graduate of Hume-Fogg Academic High School in Tennessee, as she fiddled with the locks that now come just below her ears. At least Yutakon was spared the razor. One by one, members of the freshmen class who didn't have their hair cut before Tuesday saw their locks vanish with the quick work of a barber - a ritual that was among their first tastes of academy life in Annapolis.

There was something in the musical water of 1994. Let's take another sip. A good chunk of millennials were either pre-teens or young teens in 1994 - and their budding musical tastes were informed by a wide array of memorable offerings in just about every genre. It was the post-grunge era, and alternative music ruled. But so did R&B, rap (which was getting away from party-anthems and addressing more realistic or slice-of-life tales) and pop-ish singer-songwriters. It was a year that saw the release of many seminal albums: Green Day's "Dookie," Nine Inch Nails' "The Downward Spiral," Nas' "Illmatic," Weezer's "Blue Album," Hootie and the Blowfish's "Cracked Rear View," the Notorious B.I.G's "Ready to Die. " Aaliyah, Korn, Dave Matthews Band, Brandy, Oasis, Portishead and Marilyn Manson were among the artists who released their first album in 1994.

Thank you for writing the article shining a light on anti-choice people who harass and humiliate people and their families who are not breaking any laws ("Abortion fight widens," May 11). To think that these people would go to a man's middle-school aged daughter's school to defame the girl and her family because the girl's dad rents space to abortion providers is deplorable. These anti-choice fanatics should get a taste of their own medicine by receiving calls and visits to their neighborhoods and schools.

I offer this advice to those who undertake a new walking tour of old Lauraville: Wear sensible shoes, take a map along and be prepared to learn stuff you never knew before. For starters, this Northeast Baltimore neighborhood is larger than I had imagined. It also has far more history than I was prepared to digest in the time I spent there. Lauraville is truly a city neighborhood of secrets waiting to be discovered. I learned it still has a building that served as a one-room schoolhouse dating from Lauraville's time as a Baltimore County village.

Sitting front and center in the Arundel Center's County Council chambers, Camilla Shanley carefully refereed a debate over whether to bar cellphone towers at public schools. Playing the role of the council's chairwoman, the North County High School junior listened as fellow students playing the roles of politicians and government officials offered their opinions. After 30 minutes, Shanley called for a vote, and the decision was unanimous: All five "council members" voted against banning the towers at schools, saying the financial benefits outweighed possible health risks.
