FUNKSTOWN -- Preparations are under way for the ninth annual Antietam Creek duck race Saturday, Aug. 29, sponsored by the Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. The Town of Funkstown already has a $50 donation toward the effort, just as it did last year. Firefighters are asking area businesses for additional contributions that can be used as prizes for duck race winners. Those donations could be items representing the businesses or cash that could be used as prize money. The ducks will enter the water at approximately 2 p.m. on race day.

BOONSBORO -- Hundreds of beef lovers stampeded Thursday to San Mar Children's Home to help raise money to pay for the facility's operating costs. Franklin P. Erck III, a member of San Mar's Board of Directors, said the San Mar Children's Home Bull Roast & Open House began in the 1980s, but was canceled six years ago because it didn't make money. He said the event was resurrected this year after several people asked for its return. "We're feeling good," Erck said. "We sold about 450 tickets.

I was 4 years old the first time I tasted beef jerky. I had consumed the slaughtered before, in the form of steak, pork chops and so on, but never before were these sacrificed animals so satisfying. Little did I know that this small event would lead me to understand the meaning of my life. Biting into a stick of jerky is a savage act, stemming from one's primal nature. It isn't as elegant a procedure as eating steak, in which it is custom to hold the steak in place with a fork in one hand while making delicate incisions into the tender meat with a knife in the other.

FREDERICK, Md. - Certain culinary traditions are famed for their vegetarian fare - Indian, Japanese and Thai, to name a few. Much to this vegetarian's delight, the area has seen an influx of these cuisines in recent years. But there are times when I'm in the mood for something different. It was in this adventurous spirit that two friends and I - including one carnivore - made our way to Tajitu, an Ethiopian restaurant, on a recent Thursday evening. Owing to the traditions of the Ethopian Orthodox Church, Ethiopian cuisine has a rich vegetarian heritage.
