Sometimes Deborah A. Vollmer takes her campaign out to Metro stops; other times she knocks on doors. Sometimes, she puts on her "Impeach Bush & Cheney" T-shirt and walks the streets of Bethesda, striking up conversations with whoever stops to comment. Wherever she goes, the message is the same: The war in Iraq is illegal, immoral and shameful. She is running for Congress to bring the troops home. Vollmer is one of four challengers seeking to wrest Maryland's 8th District seat from Democratic two-term U.S. Rep. Chris Van Hollen.

In a corner of Sakae Vollmer's kitchen, on a short wooden cabinet, is a small scoop of rice in a tiny metal bowl alongside a plastic cup of tea. It is an offering of food for the spirit of Debra Akiko Lauer, who died a year ago this month.Vollmer, Lauer and Teruko Dub -- all natives of Japan and wives of U.S. servicemen -- had been close friends who drifted apart. They were reunited when county police and Hospice of the Chesapeake officials needed a translator because they feared that Lauer, who had cancer, was being swindled.

Mark. K. Shriver, who lost the 8th District congressional primary despite once leading in polls, endorsed yesterday the winner, state Sen. Christopher Van Hollen Jr., campaigned with him, and wrote him a $1,000 check. Shriver, 38, officially endorsed Van Hollen, 43, at a news conference held in a Prince George's County classroom used for after-school care. An instructional sign on the cinderblock wall urges pupils to "Use Kind Words" and "Help When You Can." And that's precisely what Shriver did. He spoke kind words about Van Hollen and offered to help when he could - politically, that is. His endorsement is more than symbolic because Shriver captured 34,471 votes (41 percent)

Christopher Van Hollen Jr. and Del. Mark K. Shriver, the two legislators in the race for the 8th District Democratic nomination, are putting their names on a flurry of high-profile bills they hope will resonate with Montgomery voters. Each hopes to oust Republican Rep. Constance A. Morella. Van Hollen jumped out to an early start, filing eight bills before the session's start.

A patio can be as simple as a few slabs of stone to keep the lawn furniture from sinking into the ground, or it can be as elaborate as an outdoor living room, complete with lighting, coffee tables and stand-alone fireplace.It can be made of cement, slate, brick, stone, or even gravel (although it is hard on bare feet). While a patio often abuts the house, you can construct a hard surface almost anywhere - for better use of a secluded glade, to support an arbor for shaded outdoor dining, or for a single chair to escape all that quality time with the family.

Many moods of grayWhat did Carl Sandberg write about fog coming on little cat feet? So also comes this season's signature hue: Gray. More often subtle than splashy, gray nonetheless is the chameleon of colors. It can be banker-solid or mysterious. Dull or shimmery.Grays this spring are seen in silky sweater sets, pantsuits and evening dresses designed by Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and Versace. And Estee Lauder has created "Amazing Greys," colors for lips, nails and eyes, ranging from $5 to $27.50 and inspired by the green-blue-grays of the ocean.
