LAST WEEK, children at Brookfield Christian School in Clarksville watched a puppet show about the dangers of tobacco presented by the "Wee Won't Smoke Program." A collaboration between two Howard County agencies, the program is designed to teach children about the damage that cigarette smoking can do. "We're trying to get the message out to the very young," said Caren Logan-Absalom of the Howard County Child Care Resource Center. Debbie Yare of the Howard County Department of Citizen Services had an idea that money from the Maryland Cigarette Restitution Fund Program could be used to create puppet shows for preschool children.

In January 1936, William Faulkner had just completed his latest novel and begun his latest drinking binge. He handed the new manuscript to a friend and said, "I want you to read this. ... I think it's the best novel yet written by an American."It sounded like the bourbon talking, but Faulkner was right. Still is. The fellow whom Faulkner had met while working for Warner Bros. held in his hands the world's only copy of what would become - after some revision -"Absalom, Absalom!", the publication of which should have by now settled the question of what is The Great American Novel.

Here's the worst thing about the Baltimore Opera Company's current production of Bizet's "Carmen": Carmen herself.On Saturday night in the Lyric Opera House, mezzo-soprano Isola Jones sang the role in a manner that was unsteady in tone and showed a persistent inability to control dynamic shadings. Her French left a good deal to be desired and she performed with vocal and physical hipswinging that was vulgar rather than sexy. Friends this listener respects say that Jones, who has sung major roles at the Metropolitan Opera, was -- until very recently -- an outstanding singer.

It's impossible to walk away from "Cry, The Beloved Country" without being impressed by everyone and everything associated with it. Which is not something you can say about many Hollywood films these days.Of course, this isn't a Hollywood film, but rather the first film to come out of post-apartheid South Africa. So Tinseltown's image is safe.As is South Africa's future, if the film's twin themes of nobility and reconciliation are indeed reflective of the country that produced it. In bringing Alan Paton's acclaimed 1948 novel to the screen, director Darrell James Roodt and screenwriter Ronald Harwood concentrate on one simple message: People can live together better by practicing respect and tolerance than by embracing hate and belligerence.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your vocabulary. This week's word:  SPECIOUS You probably know Thomas Henry Huxley's remark, "Science is organized common sense where many a beautiful theory was killed by an ugly fact,” a sad reflection that what looks attractive to us may prove to be of little or no value. We have a word for it the phenomenon.

Two child-care workers whose jobs are ending because of state budget cuts are to be Howard County's first layoffs in at least a decade - though they may not be the last, county officials told the County Council at a budget review meeting yesterday.
