Baltimore's Housing Commissioner Daniel P. Henson III is not just a private-sector developer who has chosen temporary duty as a bureaucrat. More important, he is a close friend and top political strategist of Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke.Mr. Henson is thoroughly convinced that the better he does his job, the easier it will be for Mr. Schmoke to win re-election to a third term in 1995. Threatening such a triumph is City Council President Mary Pat Clarke, who has announced she is challenging Mr. Schmoke for the chief executive's job. In response, the Schmoke camp has taken steps in recent months to isolate Ms. Clarke and to prevent her from taking credit for things the mayor thinks are of his doing.

On a muggy late-summer night, any movie set in San Francisco, where the fog cools and drains the air and wipes it clean, is apt to feel refreshing. That goes even for a movie as fifth-hand as Just Like Heaven. This boy-meets-ghost-loses-ghost-gets-ghost story blends ingredients from every spectral romance ever made. But when the shaggy boy (Mark Ruffalo) and the well-coiffed ghost (Reese Witherspoon) bop up and down hills filled with seductive and eccentric cityscapes, the setting provides its own fairy-tale uplift.

Even on the phone, Neko Case talks as if she's on stage: her voice projected and animated. The alternative pop-country artist, whose latest release is the energetic live set The Tigers Have Spoken, stops at Rams Head Live Tuesday night. Case, an Alexandria, Va., native, is calling from Chicago, her home for the past five years. "It's kind of a crossroads, a friendly affordable version of New York," she says of the city that nurtured such greats as Muddy Waters, Curtis Mayfield, the Staple Singers.

Amy Davis : Sun Staff Jodi Ceglia keeps her wrapping paper neatly organized, and uses a wristband tape dispenser. [Wrap, from Page 1n] stuffing a bit of gold tinsel into the top and enveloping the package in a garland of gold stars. Then, lacking a plume of gold ribbon, she folds another sheet of paper into a fan and fastens it behind the neck of the wrapped bottle. The final effect is a bit eerie, as if a brilliant miniature ninja had just sprung from Ceglia's rustic dining room table.

ARE YOU being controlled? And if so, are you tired of it, at the end of your rope?Well, you're not alone. I've always thought that in most relationships there is one person who controls the other, and that sometimes the controlling gets out of hand and becomes a form of entrapment.Now my view has been confirmed by Dr. Gerald W. Piaget.The psychologist's new book, ''Control Freaks: Who They Are and How to Keep Them From Running Your Life,'' fascinates me because I know I've always been an ''accommodator'' and too much the peacemaker -- to my detriment.

Chrissie Hynde is afraid some people might have the wrong idea about her. She's worried that they might have heard stories about her being a hard-nosed, domineering control freak -- or, worse, taken them as fact.They're not. The leader of the Pretenders may be a lot of things -- feisty, plain-spoken, irreverent, even politically incorrect -- but a control freak? Not hardly."I don't want to control my life, I want my life to control me," she says, over the phone from the New York offices of her record company.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- A Baltimore neuropsychologist told jurors yesterday that Lee Boyd Malvo bore a light-hearted and inappropriately "cheerful" demeanor as he was jailed awaiting trial on capital murder charges in connection with last fall's sniper rampage. Describing Malvo as a teen-ager with average intelligence, David Schretlen testified that "he was unusually cheerful. It was almost a goofy affect that seemed quite out of step with the seriousness of the situation." Malvo is facing the possibility of execution if he is convicted of either of two counts of murder in the fatal shooting Oct. 14, 2002, of FBI analyst Linda Franklin, which prosecutors contend was among 10 killings by snipers in the Washington area.

Among friends and loved ones, Jodi Ceglia is known for her ability to transform an ordinary package into a work of art. For Ceglia, who is publications design manager at the Community College of Baltimore County, gift wrapping is fun because it's "hands-on creativity," rather than "just sitting in front of the computer and designing." Ceglia's gift-wrapping gifts are of champion quality, but that's not why she's a contender in this year's Scotch Brand Most Gifted Wrapper Contest. It was a rap (naturally)

WILMINGTON, Del. -- The day that trial followers have long awaited, but that his own defense attorneys feared, arrived yesterday: Thomas Capano took the witness stand in a risk-laden effort to save his own life.Capano quickly took the offensive, anxious to counter weeks of testimony that portrayed him as a control freak who juggled affairs with several women and ultimately killed the one who dared to break up with him, Anne Marie Fahey. The 30-year-old scheduling secretary to the governor vanished after dining with him on June 27, 1996.
