Is it too late to transplant crape myrtle or birch? In general, you can transplant until the ground freezes. Go ahead and transplant the crape myrtle. The birch, however, is on a short list of trees that are exceptions to the rule. It should be transplanted in the spring. Suddenly I have a new weed everywhere in my beds and lawn. It has green clusters of flowers on stems coming out of the joints. Leaves have jagged edges. Seems to be an annual, and I pull it repeatedly, but how did it get here?

Each share point represents approximately 2,000 listeners in an average quarter hour.

(The following is inspired by "Birches," with apologies to Robert Frost.) When I see teenagers to the left and right In the woods by the river off Pulaski Highway, I like to think they're about to embrace the spring. Spring brings them out of school, out of their clothes And into the woods by the river. I saw them, boys in shorts, girls in bikinis, Easter Monday, After a rain, in the sun, heading for the river. Soon the sun's warmth made them shed their shirts And into the Gunpowder they went, beneath a bridge.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- He is mostly a memory, his grace and artistry lost to recent generations of figure skaters. But while John Curry's gold-medal performances have been relegated to YouTube and an occasional 1976 Olympic retrospective, his approach to skating remains. Few have embraced it more than Kimmie Meissner, the U.S. champion who begins the defense of her title tonight. Nearly all members of Team Meissner are disciples of Curry: coach Pam Gregory, choreographer Lori Nichol and artistic coach Nathan Birch.

Whenever Jane Gardner Birch passed the Grove City, Pa., interstate exit on her way home, she wondered if the old airport she had visited frequently as a child still existed. One day about eight years ago, she took the exit and discovered that the airport was long gone. The topic of the airport cropped up again in 2004 when a childhood friend visited Birch's Crownsville home and saw a portrait of her father, Gardner Birch, in a military uniform. He asked when her father had been in the military.

NEARLY TWO weeks after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, its surrounding parishes and Mississippi's Gulf Coast, interest in this tragic and far-reaching story has not diminished. It is the largest natural disaster in American history. With thousands feared dead and hundred of thousands displaced from their homes, and with monumental recovery costs and staggering economic ramifications, it will have serious impact on life in the United States for years to come. With the storm, the media has regained its confidence after its post-9/11 passivity and the fallout from several high-profile scandals.

Yeltsin and Japanese leader Ryutaro Hashimoto at their recent summit.Their informal, Siberian "no-neckties" summit worked. The two men ignored a land dispute that has long prevented normalization of relations. They now hope to sign a belated World War II peace treaty by 2000."This is a major breakthrough in relations," Mr. Yeltsin enthused.
