Anyone who believes the Baltimore "hon" is merely a throwback to an era of beehive hairdos, cat glasses and leopard print spandex hasn't met Noelle Mack and Jennifer Blom. The 20-somethings, both finalists in Saturday's first round of Baltimore's Best Hon Contest in Hampden, are determined to do their part to carry on the hon tradition. "The young 'hons' are bringing it back," said Mack. "Once everything fades away with the older hons, we want to keep the tradition going." The two friends strutted on stage with other women decked out in feather boas and pink eye shadow for the contest, a highlight of the annual Honfest that runs through Sunday and celebrates Baltimore for its melting pot heritage and unique term of endearment, "hon," short for honey.

A longtime Howard County science teacher who was acquitted of charges that he fondled one of his teen-age students will be placed at Hammond High School today, school system attorney Mark Blom said. Glenelg High School science teacher David Stevens was acquitted in September of misdemeanor and felony charges that he inappropriately grabbed and fondled a 14-year-old freshman girl in 1998. After the trial, the school system conducted a three-month investigation, Blom said. Officials recently decided to reinstate Stevens, who had been assigned a nonclassroom job during the review.

Michael Bromery sat alone, engulfed in a forest of green, alternately playing a Japanese melody called "Esaka" on his acoustic guitar and self-made bamboo flute against the sound of mini-waterfalls. "People come here to relax and for peace of mind," he said, referring to The Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of Baltimore, which is hosting its annual Flower Show, a large display of brightly colored tulips and snow-white lilies, through Sunday. There are innumerable reasons why people find pleasure at the conservatory, which was built nearly 120 years ago, as illustrated yesterday by individuals, couples and families who leisurely made their way past thousands of plants and flowers.

A small team of Howard County legislators, litigators and school system officials will work in the coming weeks to draft a bill that would create the county's first truancy court that places harsher penalties on students. "Current truancy laws only impose [criminal] penalties on parents," said Roger Plunkett, the business, community, government relations officer for the school system, and one of the originators of the concept. "The problem, however, rests with the students. ... It would be a proactive measure."

Pine trees in the nearly 1,700- acre Broad Creek Boy Scout camp in northern Harford County have come under attack by several types of beetles that ravaged forests in other parts of the country. Robert H. Tichenor, head of the state Department of Agriculture's forest pest management program, called the infestation the largest in Maryland in the 25 years he has been on the job. It has resulted in the destruction of about 8,500 white pines scattered over 12 acres off Castleton Road near Dublin.
