Picture this: You've planned since October to take your fifth-grade class on one of those one-day, cheapo flights to Cleveland for a fun field trip, something just a little out of the ordinary.You arrange for most of the 93 kids and parent chaperones to sleep overnight in your school -- the city's Madison Square Elementary.You roust their sleepy heads out of National Guard-supplied cots at 4 a.m., having warned them for months the chartered buses will arrive to take them to the airport at 5 a.m. sharp for their 6:10 a.m. flight.

WASHINGTON - Every spring the Patriots - the John Barclay Elementary School Patriots from Warrington, Pa. - arrived in the nation's capital by the busload for their class trip. But not this year. Instead of visiting the seat of the nation's democracy, the school is sending its sixth-graders to a sports club 15 minutes away, trading the Lincoln Memorial and the Smithsonian Institution for attractions such as "Cheertastics" and "Kamikaze Boxing." "Frankly, I think it's a good idea," said Cheryl Anderson, whose son attends Barclay.

THE UNITED STATES is developing an Odor Bomb. "Why?" you are saying. "Don't we already have New Jersey?" Fine, make your little jokes. But this happens to be a serious matter of National Security. According to news items sent in by several alert readers, the Department of Defense has asked scientists to develop an odor that is repulsive to all humans, regardless of culture. This odor could be used by the military to harmlessly clear people out of a given area. On the other hand, it would attract dogs.

A handful of School 59's graduates walked through the corridors of their childhood yesterday, up the stairwells and into the classrooms.They didn't know what to expect of a place that's now an apartment house for senior citizens, where they hadn't set foot for nearly 50 years.The group knocked on the door of fifth-grade teacher Audrey Glassman's former domain, Room T, on the third floor of the school at Keyworth Avenue and Reisterstown Road that was named for novelist Louisa May Alcott.Thelma Harris ushered the group through her sunny flat, which she occupies with her husband, William.

THE SCHOOL TRIP season has started. And as many parents do, when one of our kids goes on a school trip, my wife and I sometimes stuff a camera into his backpack and encourage him to chronicle this stirring, educational experience.We do so with the hope of ending up with snapshots of smiling faces, fresh looks at notable landmarks, and vivid photographic portraits of life in a new setting.Instead, what we often end up with are lots of buildings, blurry landscapes and, just in the other day, a dramatic shot of fish mouths.

It was the final last call for ESPN Zone Baltimore. After a dozen years serving up burgers, brews and chicken wings to fans absorbed in sports on big-screen TVs, the chain's original location at the Inner Harbor closed for good Tuesday at midnight, a casualty of fierce competition, waning popularity and the recession. The chain's owner, Walt Disney Co. announced the decision last week to close five of its sports-themed restaurants, including Baltimore's, and blamed the battered economy.
