A kayaker in Anne Arundel County was shot in the stomach while paddling in a creek Saturday night, police said. David Seafolk-Kopp, 56, told Maryland Natural Resources Police investigators that he was stargazing on Bodkin Creek when he saw a campfire on shore and could hear people yelling and partying, NRP spokeswoman Candy Thomson said. He then saw a red laser dot on his stomach, and was shot in the upper right abdomen. Seafolk-Kopp, who lives in Reston, Va. and has family in Anne Arundel County, had launched his kayak from a friend's home in the 1400 block of Park Road, Thomson said.

The natural-gas campfire that burned on Billy and Linda Krone's deck that night had its beginnings at a trade show a couple of years ago. Billy Krone saw it on display and was determined to figure out how to install one, even though they weren't available through retailers at the time. "It wasn't anything more than a kit. A round, metal base, a bag of gravel, and four ceramic logs," Billy said. "It is really nothing more than a gas grill, except that the burner has bigger holes." Upon returning home, Krone found a plumbing and heating supplier that was able to order the kit for him for about $400 from Kingsman Fireplaces (www.

Take a night off from TV and experience crisp Baltimore air like never before. In a densely packed and populated city, it's easy to forget about the greener side of the state. It's even easier to forget how close to home it is. Wildlife and nature are, quite literally, right in Baltimore's backyard. The Gwynns Falls Trail stretches 15 miles to connect more than 30 neighborhoods in the Baltimore area. The trail consists of more than 1,200 acres, about 900 of which are forested. The trail association provides open access to bikers, hikers and joggers, as well as organized ways to take in the scenery, such as Campfire Hikes.

We arrived in San Diego late Saturday evening, Oct. 20. The next morning, we were able to get to Mission Beach for a quick swim in the Pacific Ocean and enjoy a short trip up the highway to La Jolla, Calif., where we noted a strange odor, like a big campfire. The ride back to our resort in Escondido, Calif., was a smoke-filled adventure until we were about 10 miles from our destination and the skies returned to being blue and beautiful. We were advised the following day to stay in the resort, where all was safe with clean air and plenty to do. But Tuesday morning at 6:30, there was a pounding at our door.

Dear Mr. President, It's too bad The Art of War wasn't on your summer reading list. If you'd read it, maybe we wouldn't be mired in Iraq. According to the author, Sun Tzu, esteemed for thousands of years as the Sage of Warfare, you're doing it all wrong. Exactly what military principles you've broken - and how many - I learned by chance. On the first day of classes at Washington College, the title on a shelf of paperbacks caught my eye. I opened at random and found this on Page 10: "In war, better take a state intact than destroy it."

Ronnie Turner, 14, remembers the prank he pulled as a 10-year-old on his father, Michael. One night while camping at Susquehanna State Park near Havre de Grace, the Norfolk, Va., boy drifted off to sleep as his father wove a traditional spooky bedtime story. Just before dawn, Ronnie stuffed his sleeping bag, making it appear that he was still in it. He sneaked out of the tent and stretched fake spider web he had saved from Halloween across the tent's entrance. "I've watched a lot of camping movies and shows, and I know lots of good tricks, and I wanted to get my dad for scaring me," Ronnie said.
