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.

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 teens — in their roles as politicians and government officials — offered opinions on cell towers at schools. 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 any uncertain health risks.

Fells Point is known for a lot of things - cobblestone streets, fun bars, seafood - but Italian fare is not among them. Anastasia, the newest offering from Kali's Restaurant Group, could change that. The restaurant, which opened in January in the Thames Street space vacated by Meli (also a Kali's Group venture), bills itself as an "Italian bistro" and also as an upscale nightclub. Those two identities don't fit together perfectly, but as a restaurant, Anastasia gets the important stuff - the food and service - just right.

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

Step into the Secolari shop at The Mall in Columbia, and you'll feel as though you're in a Tuscan farmhouse rather than a suburban shopping center. The walls are lined with stainless-steel containers, called fusti, filled with 20 different olive oils and 14 types of vinegar and aged balsamic. There's bread for sampling, along with other gourmet items proffered on rustic wooden tables designed by the store owners and made by a local lumber company. Champagne mimosa vinegar, basil-flavored olive oil, pear ginger wasabi balsamic, blackberry with roasted pepper vinegar and blood orange olive oil are some of Secolari's most unusual and popular flavors.

State lawmakers from Baltimore County hope to increase the availability of growlers, the refillable jugs that have become popular among craft beer enthusiasts. Sales of growlers have expanded elsewhere in Maryland in recent years, and county lawmakers say they want to keep up with the trend. Legislators have proposed a bill that would create growler permits for county businesses so people could take home beer from the tap. The legislation would allow liquor stores, restaurants and bars to apply for the permits.

I was appalled by The Sun's full page photo montage ("Fire and Ice," Jan. 31) showing the destruction of a house in the Roland Park area caused by a recent fire. The Sun displayed shockingly poor taste in its attempt to show the "juxtaposition of destruction and beauty" and the "interesting geometric shapes" left by the frozen water used to extinguish the blaze. An irreplaceable historic house was totally destroyed and, more importantly, a family lost its home. There is no beauty in The Sun exploiting this terrible loss for artistic purposes.

The Ravens won't be able to repeat as Super Bowl champions, but that doesn't mean that there won't be a Charm City presence at the big game this weekend. Nancy Longo, chef of Pierpoint, a Fells Point restaurant, will pack her hat, utensils and enough crab meat to feed thousands, to join 31 other chefs from NFL cities in a Super Bowl challenge of sorts put on by the nonprofit Taste of the NFL. Longo and the other cooks will take part in the "Party With A Purpose" on Saturday in Brooklyn.

Lewis C. Strudwick, a former partner in the Baltimore law firm of Ober/Kaler who had a penchant for drawing whimsical cartoons and a taste for culinary oddities, died Jan. 22 of complications from Parkinson's disease at Heron Point retirement community in Chestertown. He was 82. "Lewis was the consummate transactional lawyer, with an innate business sense and attention to detail," said Alan J. Mogol, a principal with Ober/Kaler who co-chairs the firm's finance group. "He was a counselor and not just a draftsman, making his client aware of the issues and consequences so they could make an informed decision.

Every once in a while, a media kerfuffle arrives that succeeds in elevating some banal stupidity to unimaginable heights of urgency and importance. At the center of the frenzy is usually some basic cable TV program of questionable artistic merit but produced by people with a well-developed skill at self-promotion and touching the cultural zeitgeist. About an hour ago, it was either singer Miley Cyrus or tabloid queen Kim Kardashian and her family having their 15 minutes of fame saying or doing something outrageous.

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.

"Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. " During George W. Bush's term that sentiment was often seen, usually with a statement of support for Democratic Party candidates. Now that President Barack Obama is in office, those who dissent are vilified and bullied by representatives of the party who espoused dissent a few years before. When opposition to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was voiced, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called the dissenters "anarchists," and Sen. Barbara Boxer likened them to those who commit domestic abuse.
