In Wednesday's food section an incorrect price was given for the Thanksgiving dinner specials at the Middleborough Inn. The correct price is $12.95.The Sun regrets the error.In a recent A La Carte story, incorrect operating hours were listed for Brightons. The restaurant will be open Thanksgiving Day noon to 8 p.m.+ The Sun regrets the errors.If you barely have enough time for everyday cooking, how will you find time to cook a Thanksgiving feast for family and friends?A few years ago, alternatives to cooking -- dining out -- were limited to the kind of chain restaurant that never closes and serves only warmed-over foods.

What's a little fog and drizzle to football players who sometimes play in snow, sleet and driving rain? When you've been playing the same pickup game on Thanksgiving Day for 40 years, you're not about to let a mere case of nasty weather ruin an honored tradition. Most of the mud-spattered players, middle-aged and beyond, who were assembled Thursday on a sodden field in northwest Baltimore County graduated from Pikesville Senior High School around 1970 (before it dropped the "Senior")

The decision by Giant Food stores to be open for business on Thanksgiving Day is further addition to the sense of tedium and monotony that pervades these times. All days are the same now. Is there a need for a calendar at all? Monday could be Saturday, Friday is nothing less than Wednesday. Holidays are arranged ++ for the convenience of sales, not for celebration.A dateline in this newspaper is useful only for informing that this is the day for garbage collection.The days of the week have become worth only the value of seven now. Once they were implicit divisors in our social nature.

It's too late. You should have left already.Travel this Thanksgiving holiday weekend will be the heaviest in at least seven years, according to the American Automobile Association, as 29 million Americans venture 100 miles or more to eat their turkey and dressing.For many travelers, that means airport gridlock, standing-room-only trains and buses and lines at toll booths and bathroom stops at overcrowded interstate waysides.At least 120,000 cars -- 30,000 more than on a typical day -- were expected to pass through the Fort McHenry toll plaza on Interstate 95 between last night and tonight.

"If they made it to the Sanctuary, they had a good chance of making it home," Jane Bolduc says.She's a Calvert County nurse and Vietnam veteran who spent a year or so tending to wounded troops aboard the USS Sanctuary, an old Navy hospital ship now docked at an old pier in South Baltimore. This Friday, Jane, who started her tour of duty a week after the Tet offensive of 1968, will lead a delegation of nurses back to the Sanctuary, the first time they've seen the ship since the war."I've warned them," she says, "to be prepared to see an old, rusting ship.

TOM DULEY must have wondered about it a million times as he nursed the last drink of the evening and explained to one more stranger that, yes, he really was that Tom Duley, the guy who ran back the most famous schoolboy kickoff in some vanished ballpark in some distant lifetime. It's all gone now, and Duley must have wondered: Did it really happen back there the way I think it did? Were there really crowds calling his name, and newspaper headlines, and unlimited horizons for him and for Denny Wisner and Bob Baldwin, and for Fred Brooks and Bert Hopkins, too?

The traditional rush for Thanksgiving family gatherings got off to a smooth start yesterday as hundreds of thousands of Marylanders and their kin hit the roads, rails and skies for the long holiday.At Baltimore-Washington International Airport, a record 200,000 people were expected to come and go by Sunday. And, despite predictions that the crush of travelers would be "a zoo," last evening's peak seemed to be going well."I've been here normal business days and waited longer," said Chip Warden, 27, who said he has flown out of BWI 30 to 40 times.

As most Americans doze off in front of the TV after a few too many helpings of turkey and pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, some 20 million others will be heading out to work. Called on by their employers to work on the holiday, most feel they cannot say no - they need the money or fear reprisal. Working on Thanksgiving and other holidays is not new, but the numbers of Americans doing so is climbing, and this trend is at least as much about dwindling workers' rights as it is about depressed wages.

O n a day that is supposed to bring families together, this dish has a tendency to push them apart. I am talking about cranberries, those tart little berries that everyone feels obligated to serve in some form on Thanksgiving Day. I have nothing against cranberries. I like them, as long as they're fixed the "right way." That means with fresh grated ginger, minced garlic and a can of cranberry jelly. This produces a chutney that has zest, fruit and presence. It livens up the slices of roast turkey served on Thanksgiving Day and is positively essential as a flavorful lubricant for the leftover roast turkey sandwiches that are served ad infinitum on the days after the feast.

Evening Sun readers, both the young and the young at heart, recall their Thanksgiving memories and reflect on the holiday's meaning.It was like every other Thanksgiving. All we ever do is eat turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce. We watch parades and football games, and say a lot of prayers. And we hardly ever have relatives over either . . ."Well, you're finally awake. I was about to give up on you. Here, wanna help with the dessert?""Sure Mom, but let me eat breakfast first.
