This past Sunday, Winnie the Pooh -- the fictional yellow bear who's inspired such philosophical texts as The Tao of Pooh, Pooh and the Philosophers and Postmodern Pooh -- turned 75. The Havre de Grace Branch Library is celebrating with a belated birthday bash Monday, featuring games, stories and treats. Now most of us know a thing or two about Pooh: He eats "hunny" by the fistful; he hangs out with a miniature pig, a bouncing tiger and a donkey; and he possesses a rather irrational fear of imaginary "Woozles," "Heffalumps" and "Jagulars."

The living flag On an average day, Fort McHenry is a pretty nifty place to visit. And on a patriotic holiday, Fort McHenry is all the more nifty with the pomp, pageantry and circumstance. But Tuesday, when the fort plays host to the Living American Flag, it'll be even better. The Living American Flag brings together 2,000 elementary school-age pupils from around the state to form an American flag. Children and their parents will hold red, white or blue rectangular cards over their heads, creating a replica of the 15-stripe, 15-star Star-Spangled Banner that flies over the fort and inspired the national anthem.

Walt Disney Co. revealed in a government corporate filing that a court fight over the merchandising rights to Winnie the Pooh characters could, in the worst-case scenario, cost the company several hundred million dollars and affect the value of future licensing rights for the lucrative Pooh characters. The disclosure was made in a quarterly filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It marks the first time Disney has notified shareholders of the potential impact of the 11-year-old legal battled with Stephen Slesinger Inc. That family-owned company acquired the merchandising rights to the Hundred Acre Wood characters from author A.A. Milne in 1930.

The children folded newspapers into hats and danced the "Hokey Pokey." Their fathers clasped their tiny hands and clapped along to happy songs. Then they sat, arms around each other, and read about a trailblazer named Jackie and a resourceful spider named Charlotte. For a few hours yesterday, the visiting room at the Maryland Correctional Institution in Jessup was transformed into a grammar school parent-teacher day. The children were all shy smiles and nerves as they showed off their reading.

Today's the 75th anniversary of one of the great literary achievements of the 20th century. I can't think of more than a dozen figures, personalities, in all literature that can compete with Winnie-the-Pooh for enduring enchantment. Given the nature of publishing, the date is a bit arbitrary, but for the sake of felicitations, Oct. 14, 1926, is the recognized publication date of Winnie-the-Pooh, Alan Alexander Milne's introduction of what is now Earth's most famous bear and his friends and neighbors.

"Do you like big adventure stories? Well, if you do, read 'The Swiss Family Robinson' by Johann David Wyss. This book is about a family that is shipwrecked and stranded on the beach. The story tells how the family works together to live on the beach. You will see bravery and dreams in this story. It is my favorite."-- Paige GreeneShrine of the Sacred Heart"I think kids should read 'Winnie the Pooh' books by A.A. Milne. The books are bedtime stories told to a boy named Christopher Robin. The stories are about a stuffed bear named Winnie the Pooh and his stuffed animal friends, Piglet, Rabbit, Tigger, Eeyore, Roo, Kanga and Owl. One reason to read Pooh Bear stories is because they are funny.
