If you want to know what Lynne and Victor Brick are all about, read her necklace."Brick Bodies," it says in gold letters with diamonds studding the capital Bs. The description is right on the mark:A nationally recognized leader in aerobics exercise, Lynne is, at 36, flat-bellied and firm in all the places that show. Victor, two years older and known for his acumen in the business aspects of fitness, is a perfect inverted pyramid, with broad shoulders, narrow waist, no hips.Their reputations are equally firm: "Victor is an inspired speaker, and Lynne has a very solid teaching program; she's always in the forefront in all her concepts," says Peg Moline, fitness editor at Self magazine, which this month named them "one of the foremost fitness couples in the country" and cited their Padonia Fitness Center as one of the nation's 25 best.

Maryland's busiest trial court is working short these days, and more judicial vacancies are expected in the coming months. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has moved expeditiously - and judiciously - in the past to keep state courts fully staffed, and we encourage him to address the vacancies in Baltimore with the same good speed and diligence. The Baltimore Circuit Court's 32-member bench is down three judges because of retirement, illness and the recent death of Judge Stephanie L. Royster.

With its loose skin and easily divided segments, a tangerine makes for a sweet snack with little or no cleanup.What Americans commonly call a tangerine is known to the rest of the world as a mandarin, according to Elizabeth Schneider in "Uncommon Fruits & Vegetables: A Commonsense Guide." Whether you call them mandarins or tangerines, there are several major varieties, including the clementine, Dancy, Honey, Fairchild, Kinnow and satsuma.No matter which variety you choose, select tangerines that are firm and heavy.

Who says dance has reached a dead end? The 2000-2001 Dance Calendar offers enough world class companies, premieres, and new (to us) foreign companies to satisfy dance connoisseurs. And one season highlight begins this weekend: the Kennedy Center in Washington is hosting an unprecedented Balanchine Celebration Sept. 12-24. The event will feature 14 of George Balanchine's masterworks performed by six acclaimed companies: The Bolshoi Ballet, The Miami City Ballet, The Pennsylvania Ballet, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet, The Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, and The San Francisco Ballet.

What is the difference between tangerines, tangelos and clementines? The orange-colored, spheroid members of the citrus genus are a tangle of botanical and taxonomic confusion, which I will do my best to sort out. Because citrus trees are so easy to cross, the genus includes scores of hybrids. However, there is some recent genetic evidence to suggest that in the botanical beginning, there were only three species of citrus and that the panoply of today's citrus fruits is all descended from them.

They met by the side of the road, the victim and the felon. The felon brought groceries. Chicken thighs, ground beef, Little Debbies, soda on sale. More than five years after he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from her, the felon gave these things to the victim, along with a roll of cash amounting, by her count, to $28. He asked her to call him in two weeks if she needed more. Then he left.They met on Falls Road, at an animal hospital, because Raymond A. Tubman, a disbarred lawyer who stole his clients' money, could not locate the little apartment where his victim lives.

Kansas City Comets goalkeeper Paolo Ceccarelli was sporting an orange jersey last night, but it may just as well have been stop-sign red. Basically, he left the Blast's formidable attack flustered and frustrated. The eight-year veteran turned aside 34 shots, with a number of others going off the posts, wide left, right or over the top. In all, the Blast had 51 shots and only six goals. Not nearly enough against a Comets team that was in dire need of its first win of the season, finding it by a 17-12 count before 5,210 at First Mariner Arena.

Commercial airplanes rarely take off from the wrong runway and crash as a Comair commuter jet did Sunday in Lexington, Ky. But more frequently, planes swipe or come close to hitting other aircraft or equipment on the nation's increasingly crowded runways, according to aviation experts. Most mistakes are corrected before there is an accident because of the work of pilots, air traffic controllers and their equipment. And the near misses are not always recorded in federal accident databases, experts said.

It used to be that an orange was an orange. The way a rose is a rose. No more.Now there are so many types of fruit with orange skin in the produce section that you almost need a program to identify the players. One way to make it through the aisle is to make the endeavor a game, a sort of know-your-citrus quiz show.For starters, what is a Dancy?If you don't know, go straight to the canned juice aisle and study the labels. We'll call you.But if you said that a Dancy is a small-to-medium-size tangerine, with loose peel and a few seeds, and is usually seen in supermarkets in December and January, then you are obviously a serious juicer and are ready to move up to the level of the citrus challenge.
