Every May the faithful trek to La Crosse, Kan., for the annual Barbed Wire Festival. There are wire-splicing contests, an awards banquet and exhibits at the 5,400-square-foot Kansas Barbed Wire Collectors Association Museum. Collectors haggle over various types of wire, with the rarest going for $300 for an 18-inch piece. Before the fun is over, many of these collectors also plunk down $100 for a pamphlet identifying 622 kinds of wire.Two other barbed wire museums exist in the United States.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler repeatedly clashed, accusing the other of deceiving the voters. Even Del. Heather R.

QALANDIYA, West Bank - The coils of barbed wire begin at the military checkpoint here and follow the rocky terrain, skirting a refugee camp and an abandoned airport before ending at another Israeli army post three miles away. The barbed wire fence, in places 10 feet high, is the latest attempt by Israel to intercept Palestinian suicide bombers before they reach Israeli cities - part of an ambitious plan called "enveloping Jerusalem" intended to protect the city's neighborhoods in the West Bank with a protective fence or wall.

Carroll County will tighten security at its regional airport with the addition of 12,000 feet of chain-link fence topped with barbed wire. The commissioners approved a $66,400 contract yesterday that will pay Delta Airport Consultants to design the 12-foot-high fence for the Carroll County Regional Airport outside Westminster. Once the Richmond, Va., company completes the design work, the project, estimated to cost as much as $500,000, will go out to bid. The Federal Aviation Administration, which has tied such work to homeland security, is expected to reimburse Carroll for most costs, officials said.

A recent article repeated a charge that the current Board of Education claims that our schools are perfect and need no changes. That's completely false, and no board member has ever said such a thing. I attended all of the hearings of the recent commisssion studying the method of electing school board members, and again, no board member, past or present, ever said our schools are perfect. Now is the time to look at ways to improve our schools, for all the children, not throw unwarranted charges about.

Debbie Yow and Gary Williams are like that couple that called it quits years ago, but whenever you run into them, you still get the sense they'd like to stab each other in the eyeballs. Wow, is this a feud for the ages or what? Yow, of course, is the former Maryland athletic director who used to get along with Williams, the current Terps basketball coach, the way the Bloods get along with the Crips. But when Yow took over as the AD at North Carolina State last year, you thought maybe that was the end of the sniping between the two. Of course, by now we know it wasn't.

Postcard from the edge, penned by a friend on summer leave: "So I'm floating down the Shenandoah River Saturday with about 35 people, most of them educators in Maryland public schools. We're all in inner tubes. We get caught in the middle of a thunderstorm with lightning bolts, tree limbs falling down, and we engaged in a ludicrously long intellectual discourse about where we might be safer. We decided to get out of the water, climb a muddy bank, under a barbed-wire fence and stand in the middle of a cow pasture.

The hottest thing in running is not a new shoe or energy drink. It's mud. And fire. And other things that get in the way of running but manage, for some, to make racing more fun. Obstacle-course events that send participants into mud pits and under barbed wire, over walls and through flames, across monkey bars greased with butter and into a forest of live electric wires, are popping up like blisters on an Ironman's feet. While they sound hard core, some of these races appeal especially to casual runners because the obstacles break up the running and take the focus off finish times.
