More than a dozen chickens died in a fire in their chicken coop in Havre de Grace Monday night. The fire was discovered shortly before 8 p.m. by David E. Toney, who owned the 8-by-6-foot chicken coop that was attached to a 10-by-12-foot shed in the 4100 block of Gravel Hill Road. It started accidentally when a heating lamp inside the coop had fallen and ignited nearby combustibles, according to a press release from the Maryland State Fire Marshal. The chicken coop was a complete loss and 13 chickens died in the fire.

At 90 years old, Betty Williams' clearest memory of her days at Colored School 115 is running through an alley the schoolchildren thought was haunted. "It was a game to run through and not get caught," she said, describing the lane between two of the old school's buildings. Williams attended grades one through six at the school, built in 1888 in Baltimore's Waverly neighborhood, from 1929 to 1935. It was declared unfit for children in the 1920s but continued in use because of "the feeling that black children weren't deserving of anything better," said historian JoAnn Robinson.

The Fixes' house doesn't look as if it started out as a chicken coop. Nestled in the woods north of Baltimore, the structure is a striking combination of country cottage and contemporary architecture.Four years ago Dorothy and John Fix, professors of art at Towson State University, asked architect Frederick Hiser to renovate their one-bedroom home, which had originally been built around a chicken coop. It was small, dark and dreary, but they had remained there 13 years because they loved its site, 2 acres of woods and garden.

In the history of presidential campaign books, Theodore H. White's "The Making of the President" series in the 1960s set the standard for campaign books to follow. He combined unique access and a sweeping view of the process to help voters judge the candidates and understand the quadrennial exercise as well. Teddy White was a pleasant and avuncular figure who gained that access through a combination of fairness and sympathetic schmoozing. It was once said, disparagingly, that Mr. White was the kind of reporter who could always go back to his sources, meaning he never gave offense to them in what he wrote.

One of the best and most enduring aspects of presidential cabinets has been the willingness of many chief executives to appoint at least one member from the opposition party. The practice demonstrates bipartisanship and also gives the president access to views that may not always be offered by loyalist appointees. The custom of reaching across the party aisle has been brought into question by the new memoir of former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, kept in the job by President Obama as a carryover from the George W. Bush presidency.

In a summer that has already seen its share of such bloated animated features as "Dinosaur" and 'Titan A.E.," it's nice to see a movie bring animation back to its handmade roots. "Chicken Run," which opens Friday, is by Aardman Animations' Nick Park (of "Wallace & Gromit" fame) and Peter Lord, who have become the world's greatest artists of clay animation in the last 10 years. With its cast of spirited chickens (led by a heroic hen who tries desperately to break her peers out of their "Stalag 17"-like prison)

A duffel bag containing a skull and what are believed to be three human bones was found in a Jarrettsville chicken coop yesterday, according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office. The bones, found in the 1400 block of Rock Ridge Road, are to be taken to the medical examiner's office today, said Sgt. Dave Betz, Harford County Sheriff's Office spokesman. One of the bones contained markings of what appeared to be a stamp or writing, Betz said. Investigators are trying to determine whether the bones were used in an educational setting or whether a crime is involved.

For years, William Rice amassed tools, barrels and other knickknacks and hand-me-downs from his grandfather and his great- grandfather. Relatives say he stockpiled many of his belongings, including clothes and paint cans, inside two rickety sheds outside his rural Harford County home. That's where a worker found, amid the stuff, a canvas duffel bag - with human bones and part of a skull. Yesterday, authorities said the bones were likely educational props, and they have all but ruled out foul play.

Faculty at Towson University might be forgiven a double take when they see Richard P. Chait receive an honorary degree from their institution tomorrow afternoon. After all, some among them might be tempted to put a noose over Chait's head instead of the colorful hood that represents the honor. That's because Chait is seen as a critic of the tenure system, the virtual lifetime job guarantee that some say ensures academic freedom, but that others say only allows early retirement at full pay. "There will be many faculty members who will be nonplused at this guy getting an honorary degree, that it's like inviting the wolf to the chicken coop," says Jack Fruchtman, a Towson political science professor who chairs the school senate.

"All right, girls, move it over!" John Maul told some of the 30 chickens sitting on freshly laid eggs and extended his hand to get some.Inside a pen near the chicken coop, buried under down, straw and a mother rabbit, were eight tiny newborns; the furry creatures, their eyes still closed, were no bigger than the eggs.In surrounding fields, the air is fragrant with vegetables, sage and oregano, and the nearby greenhouses are filled with feverfew, horehound, pennyroyal and dozens of other herbs for cooking and healing.

BASATA CAMP, Egypt -- The only stars at this desert resort are the ones above your head. There are no phones at this collection of bamboo huts nestled beside a sapphire cove in the Sinai desert. There's no television. No pool. No perky aerobics instructor in spandex leading exercises on the beach. If you want a hearty breakfast or a sumptuous lunch, you'll have to fix it yourself. That's the way Sherif El-Ghamrawy planned it. When Ghamrawy founded his paradise by the sea, the word "simplicity" -- "basata" in Arabic -- came to mind.
