Lola,Mont. -- THE timber industry is using rising lumber prices to lure us into an unsettling equation.L We are told that expensive lumber makes houses unaffordable.And we are told to blame environmental protection for these higher prices: How much are we willing to pay, the industry asks, to save a lesser species, the northern spotted owl?Now that the Clinton administration has decided to take away the subsidies that help logging companies clear-cut public lands, timber industry spokesmen will make a parallel argument: Without the publicly financed incentives, expenses will go up and the cost will be passed along to the consumer.

Why remake The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? To make it more hip? Appeal to a wider audience? Demonstrate how chainsaw technology has changed since the original film came out in 1974? Try none of the above. This is not a classic storyline that warrants an update. This is a movie about a guy with bad skin and a predilection for wearing other people's faces and killing people with power tools. But if you believe original director Tobe Hooper did everything right 29 years ago, and plenty of people do, why do it again?

Sometimes, it's important to see the forest and the trees. By illegally taking a chainsaw to small trees along the Gunpowder River, several members of the Greater Baltimore Canoe Club proved blind to both. It might not seem like a big deal as you walk along the riverbank below Prettyboy Reservoir. Four weeks after the incident, the trunks that end abruptly at the water's edge still look freshly cut, and the severed pieces lie waterlogged below. What's a couple of trees in a thick forest?

Portrait of the artist describing the creative process: "This started out as a regular house cat," Gary White says, his arm draped lovingly over the top of what would have been the world's largest kitty.The huge wooden cat, sitting in a particularly regal pose on the front porch of Mr. White's home near Westminster, is almost as tall as he is -- and he is pretty tall."But then it didn't look quite right," he continues. "So I changed it to a lion."He heads around toward the back of the house, walking past a wooden bear painted to look as if he is wearing a brilliant blue flowered shirt.

Bobby Fischer may have said it best: "You can only get good at chess if you love the game." From the looks of his backyard patio, Mike Kelley of Ellicott City must be quite a chess player. He built a stone-and-granite chessboard measuring 8 feet square in a 12-foot-by-18-foot patio, and he carved all of the game's 32 pieces with a chain saw. Tucked under the canopy of a huge maple, the giant chess set has an almost surreal look - as if pulled from an early edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Here's probably the only fact you need to know about JimmyO and April Monique Burril: They were married on Halloween 1998 in costume. She was dressed as some sort of demented fairy-type thing, he as a werewolf. Need another fact? Try this one: They've made a movie together, Chainsaw Sally, that has nothing to do with chopping wood. Yep, they're one of those couples. "In this neighborhood, we're definitely the weirdos on the corner," says April, 32, chatting amiably at the dining-room table of their Perryville home, an unassuming end-of-the-row duplex a stone's heave from where the Susquehanna River flows through town.

THE BUSH administration's recent loosening of the Clean Air Act's oversight of upgraded old power plants came as no surprise. But of greater consequence is the administration's across-the-board assault on pollution controls, environmental standards and land-use safeguards. And it is an agenda backed by the appointment of industry lawyers and lobbyists to nearly all key environmental protection posts. While these appointments were reported when they were made in 2001, too often this engine that drives Mr. Bush's policy is overlooked in the news media when the president embarks on environmental campaign trips -- as he did in August -- that are intended to generate feel-good photo ops with photogenic natural backdrops.
