Elvis Costello wants you to listen carefully to the beginning of his new album, a collaboration with songwriter Burt Bacharach called "Painted From Memory."It starts with a song called "In the Darkest Place," a song about the despair that can wash over a man abandoned and denied by his lover. But it isn't the melody or lyric Costello wants us to hear - at least, not just yet.Where he wants our focus is on the introduction. "Listen to how appealing, how intriguing the opening notes of the record are," he says.

Arnold to dismiss the $1.5 million medical malpractice claim against Westminster Drs. Donald D. Coker and John E. Steers, said her clients did not cause Linda Burt's emotional and psychological problems.The lawyer said Ms. Burt, who rested her case yesterday, failed to prove that the way the doctors handled her May 1989 mastectomy was negligent or harmful.

In the tiny Midwestern town where my wife grew up, when folks needed something fixed they went to see the men at the lumberyard. The lumberyard guys knew how to set things right.I used to laugh at such a provincial view of problem-solving. Now I live in Baltimore, a place that, when the whole schmear including the Washington area and suburbs are counted, ranks as the fourth largest urban area in America.However, the longer I live in this big city clime, the more I find myself behaving like I live in a small town.

With New Orleans under water and its convention center serving as a refugee camp, it's clear that the hundreds of organizations that planned fall conventions in the city will be making other arrangements. As convention planners scramble to find new meeting locations, Baltimore and cities across the country are hoping to take New Orleans' place, capturing business worth untold millions of dollars. "This is a tragic situation, and I don't want to sound like a non-caring, aggressive salesperson," said Ronnie Burt, Baltimore Area Convention & Visitors Association's vice president of convention sales.

Triplet brothers are having a blast at a water park late one afternoon and, despite pruned fingers, they don't want to leave. But it's getting late, and Dad says they must go in 15 minutes. Pick one of the superslides for one last ride of the day, dad instructs them. Of the three big slides, Adam's favorite is the red one, followed by the green and yellow slides. Burt's fave is green, with yellow second and red last. And Chip loves yellow, followed by red and green. The boys can't separate because Dad's safety rule is they keep together everywhere in the park.

Maya Rudolph's subtle, lyrical portrait of a patient wife and expectant mother enlivens and elevates Away We Go, an erratic couple-on-a-quest film. It stars Rudolph and John Krasinski of The Office as the very pregnant Verona and the bright, oblivious Burt, a stable yet eccentric pair seeking the right place to deliver and raise their first baby. Rudolph's performance registers as a gift partly because it's so unexpected. As Verona, Rudolph emits a vital awareness even when she's desperate or withdrawn.

When the clock ticked down to zero last night, and the buzzer finally went off, all five players on Glenelg's girls basketball team slapped the floor in unison. Make no mistake, the gesture was important, if only because of its symbolism. It served as No. 6 Glenelg's exclamation point at the end of a hard-fought 66-60 home victory over No. 5 River Hill, marking the first time a Howard County team had defeated the Hawks in 39 regular-season games. "It feels so good right now," said Glenelg junior Jessica Burt.

"Burt Lancaster: An American," by Kate Buford. Alfred A. Knopf. 430 pages. $27.50. Burt Lancaster was a Hollywood movie star who sought independent and challenging projects before it became fashionable for actors to "stretch." No other star would, at the peak of his popularity, have chosen to portray a vicious and cynical New York City newspaper columnist in "The Sweet Smell of Success" (a box-office failure that is now considered one of the great movies of the 1950s). What distinguishes Lancaster's career, as Kate Buford proves in her authoritative and unflinching biography, is that he did not seek recognition and fame.
