APPLETON - Residents of this rural crossroads community in the northeast corner of the state are expected to turn out in force at a public hearing Tuesday evening to oppose a proposed housing development in their neighborhood, which they argue could affect the entire county.

IN THE FIRE OF SPRING.Thomas Tryon.Knopf.626 pages. $25. "In the Fire of Spring" comes jangling and jouncing onto the scene like Cinderella's outlandish pumpkin carriage. Readers acquainted with actor/producer/novelist Thomas Tryon's historical romance "The Wings of the Morning" (1990) may remember that the Yellow Pumpkin is the name of Squire Appleton Talcott's splendid carriage and the most envied vehicle in Tryon's mythical 19th century Connecticut town. Nobody covets the Yellow Pumpkin more than Appleton's old skinflint archrival, Abednego Grimes.

NEW SWEDEN, Maine - Frustration over a donated communion table "could have been a straw" that motivated the mass poisoning at Gustaf Adolph Lutheran Church on April 27, but investigators no longer think there was a single trigger for the act, according to the case's chief investigator. Lt. Dennis Appleton said Wednesday that police are trying to determine whether 53-year-old Daniel Bondeson acted alone in poisoning parishioners at a fellowship meeting. Although police have "a feeling" that someone else had a hand in the crime, Appleton said, after Bondeson's suicide May 2 they were left with no definitive evidence.

In The Majestic, the indisputably gifted Jim Carrey shows the side of him that just wants to be loved - the Riddler on Ritalin, the Mask unmasked. And it turns out to be stultifying. In the latest sentimental pile-driver from director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile), Carrey plays Peter Appleton, a Hollywood screenwriter fired from his studio in 1951 after he is accused of being a Communist. He gets in his car, drives it off a bridge to avoid a furry creature, crashes, and washes up near a small Northern California town that accepts him as a long-lost local hero.

APPLETON, Wis. - Gordon Terpstra rattled off the topics of the latest political TV ads like a weekly shopping list he had long ago committed to memory: education, tax cuts for the richest 1 percent - and that one ad where Al Gore goes to Vietnam and then plays with his family. "I'm bored with them, totally bored with them," sighed Terpstra, a 60-year-old shop clerk from nearby Neenah. "It's the same ads, over and over and over again." Every voter in the United States can get a glimpse of the presidential candidates tonight, during their second televised debate in Winston-Salem, N.C., beginning at 9 p.m. But the residents of some unlikely targets of Election 2000's air war - from Green Bay and Appleton, Wis., to Scranton, Pa., to Flint, Mich.
