Authentic vintage bathtubs and kitchen and bath sinks can be brimming with character and charm. Old claw-footed tubs are deep and roomy; pedestal and wall-mounted sinks with legs are stately-looking, and farmhouse-style sinks are the perfect complement to country-style kitchens.But they can also be a good way of pouring money down the drain. They may appear indestructible, but many old sinks and tubs have all but reached the end of their useful lives, which may explain why they're relatively easy to come by, particularly in larger towns and cities, where old homes and hotels from the late 1800s to the 1950s have been demolished after their salvageable artifacts have been removed.

Naming a school is anything but elementary.The choice should stand out, but not too far. Make a statement, but not too bold. Be unique in an ordinary way.With the state of Maryland ladling out buckets of school construction money over the last four years and more than 20 schools in the planning pipeline, there will be a lot of scrambling in communities to come up with the perfect combination of words that mean everything - and nothing.Principals of new schools say few issues generate such intense community feelings.

CHICAGO -- While the eyes of the nation are riveted on the sex scandal in Washington, another sex scandal with national implications is raising questions just as vexing.It involves two 17-year-old girls, Somer Chipman and Chasity Glass of the northern Kentucky town of Williamstown. They were denied entry to the Grant County High School chapter of the National Honor Society, even though, in most ways, the girls were very well qualified.Miss Chipman has a 3.8 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale.

The overture to "The Marriage of Figaro" sounds best from its perch at the beginning of Mozart's greatest comic opera. Indeed, a full-length "Figaro" is a must-have for any serious (or even frivolous) fan of classical music.The top three versions have been around for a while and sound even better with age. Erich Kleiber's "Figaro" from the 1950s is full of character and great singing (London).Soprano Jessye Norman makes a wonderful Countess for Colin Davis on Philips, and the budget-conscious will love conductor Carlo Maria Giulini, who lopped off a couple of forgettable arias, allowing the whole opera to fit onto a pair of mid-priced EMI discs.

WASHINGTON -- After casting their ballots on whether to legalize the use of marijuana for medical treatment, district residents tuned to the local news on election night to find out the results. That's when they saw the tally: Zero "yes" votes. Zero "no" votes.Zero votes, period.How could this be, when thousands remembered voting on Initiative 59 that very morning?It turns out that Congress, which controls the inner workings of district affairs, squelched the release of the results after one of its most conservative members did not like the smell of the medical marijuana measure.

It's not clear what will happen to the scoreboards, toilet seats and concession stands. Or where the brass commemorative plaques of Johnny Unitas and Brooks Robinson will end up.But the dismantling of Memorial Stadium has begun -- some of its seats are on the way to high schools in Howard and Harford counties.This month, North Harford High School and the Howard County Department of Education bought more than half the 12,000 seats available, with the idea of sprucing up their aging stadiums with a dash of Maryland athletic lore.

BOSTON -- Over the next year, Gillette Co. looks to make a lot of noise as it spends $300 million to market its new Mach3 razor to the world -- the ad campaign for the triple-bladed razor that has just kicked into high gear in the United States and Canada.But since 1995, the company has quietly spent even more money to overhaul its manufacturing facility in South Boston.When Hollywood spent $200 million on "Titanic," movie audiences paid attention. When the New England Patriots proposed a $200 million football stadium in South Boston, the neighborhood howled in protest.
