Turkey, duck, chicken or turducken — whatever you're cooking on Thanksgiving, make sure you're not whipping up a dangerous side of carbon monoxide. With a busy holiday and a house full of guests, it can be easy to leave the oven on and forget to ventilate properly, officials warn. The Baltimore Fire Department saw an "alarming strike," with 45 calls last Thanksgiving for carbon monoxide alarms, nearly five times as many as the average day, spokesman Ian Brennan said. "It's a completely preventable situation on Thanksgiving Day," he said.

While Butterball, the nation's largest turkey producer, said it was facing a shortage of fresh, large birds weeks before Thanksgiving, Maryland's poultry giant Perdue said it would have no trouble meeting demand. "Perdue is not experiencing any shortage of turkeys for Thanksgiving," said spokeswoman Julie DeYoung. "Our customers place their turkey orders well in advance of the holiday, and we have sufficient supply to meet those orders. " Butterball said its poultry had trouble gaining weight on some of its farms but did not explain why. The company still has ample supplies of its frozen large varieties, which are birds 16 pounds and heavier.

Brace yourself for the epic convergence of two holidays - a celebration of rich dishes, piles of sweets and family togetherness the likes of which have never before been seen and won't be repeated for more than 77,000 years. Thanksgivukkah is coming. Latkes with cranberry sauce. Turkey-shaped menorahs. Cornucopias stuffed with dreidels. Thanks to quirks of the Jewish and Gregorian calendars, Hanukkah and Thanksgiving will coincide this month for the first time since 1888, back when celebrations of both holidays were more muted.

For an agricultural operation that is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, Maple Lawn Turkey Farm is adept at blending the old and the new. Tried-and-true methods still prevail at Maple Lawn. But the Fulton farm also embraces modern concepts, such as raising free-range birds and using large arrays of solar panels to generate enough electricity to offset what it consumes each year. And just in time for Thanksgiving, the turkey farm's success story will unfold on the airwaves Tuesday in the debut of a new half-hour TV series featuring farms across the state.

Maryland hunters have killed considerably more turkeys and deer than this time last year because of better conditions, the Department of Natural Resources said late last week. Hunters completed the early portions of the archery and muzzleloader deer seasons by harvesting 28,023 deer during September and October - 26 percent higher than last year's below-average harvest of 22,283 for the period. Last year's low harvest was attributable to an abundant acorn crop, which resulted in deer moving less in search of food, the DNR said.

Obamacare = Prenatal and Mammogram Screenings for YOUNG MEN - FINALLY! Hopefully, you now understand why I have devoted about a dozen of my Sunday columns to the train wreck widely known as Obamacare. From the beginning, this mega combination of many poor (and a few good) ideas was destined to be problematic in the real world of a market economy. Herewith my indictments. •Scope: Prior to Obamacare, approximately 15 percent of Americans were either under-insured or lacked health insurance.

As a child, chef and cooking instructor Nikki McGowan of CKCS Foods Studio loved Thanksgiving. “Thanksgiving holds for me my fondest culinary memories,” she says. “The smell of pumpkin pie spice reminds me of my mom every time I encounter it.” However, Nikki's memories of the day after Thanksgiving aren't so pleasant: She dreaded the return of dry, bland leftover turkey sandwiches. Here, she punches up the traditional post-Thanksgiving sandwich with a healthy smear of cream cheese and dollops of tart cranberry sauce and orange marmalade.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | August 9, 2013
In recent years, wild turkeys have become relatively common in Maryland, seen fairly regularly in wild areas and parks, and even turning up from time to time in more suburban areas. The photograph published in Wednesday's edition of The Aegis showing a hen and her five poults in a rural Jarrettsville neighborhood shows why the population of wild turkeys has remained healthy, but it gives no indication of the human effort that went into ensuring turkeys could thrive in lands their ancestors had called home for millennia.
