Wales is known as the land of the Celts, of vast green meadows and coal mines, of poet Dylan Thomas and actor Richard Burton, and of towns with tongue-torturing names such as Merthyr Tydfil and Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrn-drobwllllantysiliogogogoch- no kidding.Raymond Carignan and Barry Bogage are selling a different vision of Wales: It's an image of the land of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, Hoover vacuums, Ford automobiles and more Japanese manufacturing investment than in any other country outside of the United States.

From July 1 through 9, the 35-voice choir will sing in concerts with Welsh choirs and participate in competitions.

ONE-FOURTH of the people of Wales want their own assembly to govern education, culture, housing and economic development. One-fourth are opposed. One-half don't care enough to vote either way. On this basis, Wales will be given an assembly, or Senedd, by Britain's Labor government. Last Thursday's referendum -- 50.3 percent in favor, a huge swing from the massive rejection of 1979 -- was the go-ahead.The Senedd will be the first attempt at a Welsh parliament in six centuries, and the earlier one was pathetic.

PHILADELPHIA -- With their 28-15-4 record, the Washington Capitals have had a solid impact on the NHL all season. And with Don Beaupre in goal for the Wales Conference squad during the second period of the All-Star Game, the pattern continued yesterday.Taking over for starter Patrick Roy and with his team trailing by 2-1, the only thing Beaupre lacked aside from help over the next 20 minutes was a blindfold and a last request.In 12 minutes, the Campbell Conference sent eight shots the Capitals goalie's way, and five of them found net.On only about half the six goals Beaupre allowed during the Campbell's 10-6 triumph could he be faulted.

Close to the wire, it seemed as though the Taneytown city election tomorrow would be pointless. The mayoral candidate is unopposed, and until April 6 no one had filed to run for the two open city council seats.But by the deadline April 12, incumbent Brian E. Long and newcomers Darryl G. Hale and Bobby Wales Sr. had applied to run for the at-large seats, creating a race. Voters may choose two of the three, and the two highest vote-getters will win.The candidates all express a desire to preserve the city's small-town qualities while promoting economic growth, which the current government has set as a goal.

Brave Scotland and doughty Wales, having voted to establish their own legislatures after centuries of dependence on the Parliament in Westminster, have taken baby steps toward independence. They are tiptoeing away from the mother country.The Scotsman newspaper in Edinburgh boldly declared the aftermath of the vote, Sept. 11., "the first day of the rest of Scotland's life."It then added, more timorously, "We will make of it what we can."William Hague, the spokesman for the losers in the referendum, who want to keep Scotland firmly under English control, said the voters "had the wool pulled over their eyes."

The old cliche that hip-hop headliners never take the stage on time was true on Thursday night at Rams Head Live. The Gaithersburg-born rapper Wale, the area's most prominent hip-hop artist on a national level, took the stage around midnight, an hour after he was scheduled to perform. But according to Wale, the delay wasn't his fault. At 11:51 p.m., Wale took to his Twitter account to inform fans he had just arrived after his professional driver was pulled over by police on the way to the venue.

Very few rappers get second chances, but Wale did when he signed with Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group earlier this year. "Ambition" - the D.C. rapper's sophomore album released last Tuesday - proves, at least from a numbers perspective, Wale deserved another shot at stardom. "Ambition" will debut on the Billboard 200 at No. 2 after selling 164,000 copies in its first week. Justin Bieber's Christmas album, the icky-titled "Under the Mistletoe," will be the only record above Wale's, with 210,000 copies sold.

Lately, Baltimore has been booking more hip-hop shows (The Throne will be watched Oct. Nov. 1, while J. Cole, Yelawolf and Young Money's Tyga will all be here in the fall, too), a welcome trend for a city so close to bigger markets Philadelphia and Washington. This weekend is particularly stacked: Lupe Fiasco's "Generation Laser" Tour (with D.C.'s Wale) hits Merriweather Post Pavilion Friday and the legendary Mobb Deep plays the new Baltimore Soundstage Sunday. All three acts are stopping by at interesting points in their careers.
