When they opened their Owings Mills oasis for fine dining back in 1988, owners Ellen and Linwood Dame called it Linwood's Cafe-Grille. Over the years, the name has been streamlined. Even the apostrophe has been plucked out. It is now simply Linwoods, and the restaurant is doing today what it has always done, which basically comes down to giving a demanding clientele what it wants without making it seem condescending or patronizing. That's no easy trick, and Linwoods makes it all appear smooth and easy.

Ethiopia has a long and illustrious history. Its people, thought to be a mixture of African and South Arabian peoples, were spoken of by Homer as the "farthermost of men," who welcomed the gods to their banquets. Its traditions claim that the Queen of Sheba was Ethiopian, and its monarchs claimed descent from Menelek, the son of the Queen of Sheba and Solomon.Moreover, Menelek is supposed to have carried the Ark of the Covenant, which contained the tablets of the Ten Commandments, from Jerusalem to the Ethiopian capital of Aksum.

For Colm Toibin, the world is full of echoes - ancient stories from different traditions that speak of parents, children and the divine. He sensed the reverberations every time he thought of his childhood in County Wexford, Ireland, where he was steeped in biblical stories. He detected them every time before he stood before a class in the New School in New York and prepared to lecture on the ancient Greek tragedies. And he picked up the murmurs once again when he went to the opera or saw his friend, the actress Fiona Shaw, perform the role of Medea on Broadway, and wished there were more epic roles for her to tackle.

In medieval illuminated manuscripts, the letter B lends itself especially well to illustration, because its loops provide places for two distinct scenes, above and below.In the current manuscript show at the Walters, "The Psalms of David in the Middle Ages," an early 14th-century Italian book of psalms opens with an illustrated B introducing the first Psalm. A picture of King David adorns the lower segment, and that's entirely appropriate, since David was thought to have written many of the Psalms.

Educators know that children need positive role models with whom to identify and imitate. But with the exception of some of Christ's maxims, including "Let the children come to me ... for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these," the New Testament contains few references to children. St. Paul's Episcopal Church members, however, have tipped their collective hats to "Courageous Children, Stepping Out for Christ," the church's vacation Bible school program. The weeklong program concludes this evening.

The biggest news of the millennium -- maybe of all human history even -- hit the nation's bookstores yesterday.The Bible code, a preoccupation for centuries of both serious philosophers and determined crackpots, the ultimate "anagram from the Almighty," had been cracked. It was a mystery that had eluded the intellectual efforts of Isaac Newton and teased the mind of Albert Einstein.It is all in a new book, "The "Bible Code," by journalist Michael Drosnin.Published by Simon & Schuster, it asserts that events that have occurred since the earliest books of the Scriptures were written -- and events that will occur in times ahead -- are all secretly inscribed in the Old Testament.

"The Gold of Exodus," by Howard Blum. Simon & Schuster. 364 pages. $25.One of the unintended messages of "The Gold of Exodus" is this: Not every book advertised as non-fiction should be read as literal truth.In 1988, two Americans convinced themselves that the Old Testament story of Moses leading the Israelites to Mount Sinai was as clear as a highway map. Mount Sinai, they concluded, lay in southwestern Saudi Arabia and was the hiding place of nearly a ton of gold.The Americans managed to travel there and satisfied themselves that their mountain, Jabal al Lawz, was the "true" Mount Sinai.

Last week, top officials in Baltimore County stood together to proudly announce that the homicide rate there was at its lowest level since Jimmy Carter was president. This week, top officials in the Baltimore City Police Department had to answer questions from City Council members about why homicides there were once again on the rise. For a host of reasons, comparing the two isn't really fair, but it is instructive to look at what has driven the drop in homicides in the county to see what could apply to the very different circumstances of the city.

The recent obituary for Sister Irene Marshiano ( "Sister Irene Marshiano, founder of the Franciscan Center, dies at 70," Nov. 13) should have been The Sun's front page lead story. My compliments to Jacques Kelly for his truly superb writing and testament to a very wonderful religious lady's love and faith in God. In these troubled times of evil and despair, such an inspiring true life story should be front page news, not buried with the obituaries.

By the time you read this, millions of Americans will have risen this morning at an hour best suited for dairy farming to watch wall-to-wall coverage of the televised wedding of Britain's Kate Middleton and Prince William. The TV networks are certainly milking the royal nuptials for all they are worth, having dispatched hundreds of reporters and producers to the scene to capture every pomp and circumstance. It's hard to see the harm in this shared moment of Anglophilia, aside from what envy it may generate from those impressionable youngsters watching it all on the family big screen TV with visions of wedding ceremonies half as lavish.

With the passing of William Donald Schaefer, we should be reminded of what can be achieved when our elected officials place the concerns of the voters above party affiliation. His life served as a testament to those who work tirelessly every day in Annapolis to achieve the best for their constituents and reminds us all that in the end, whether Democrat, Republican or moderate, we are all Marylanders.

There is a factual error in Thomas Schaller's column ("The problem is not Islam but orthodoxy," Aug. 24). He quotes Jesus as saying, "But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me. " In fact, these words are spoken by a king in a parable that Jesus tells. It is truly unfortunate that the only voices on religion that seem to get air time these days are the Pharisaical right or the anti-religious. OK, maybe we're stuck with that.

Baltimore's historic Lloyd Street Synagogue was almost torn down in the late 1950s to make way for a parking lot. An architect was hired to prepare scale drawings of the structure, so there would be a record of it after it was gone. Now the 1845 building is bustling with activity, after a $1 million restoration and the opening of a lower-level gallery designed to extend its reach as a center of education and tourism. The Jewish Museum of Maryland, which now owns the synagogue, opened the gallery Sunday as the latest addition to its Herbert Bearman campus.
