Valentine was upbeat but more reserved in his praise. The WMC senior said he's happy the new building has better air circulation than the school's older science labs."There was this stagnant chemical smell in there which was probably not good for your health, in addition to being unpleasant," he said.The Science Center -- a $13.4 million facility that opened in August but was officially dedicated yesterday in Baker Memorial Chapel -- is the most expensive structure on the Westminster campus.

WASHINGTON - William Warwick bent over slightly and spread his elbows as if they were wings. With a shield in one hand and a spear topped with an eagle's claw in the other, he began to stamp his feet rhythmically, his head swinging back and forth. Faster and faster he went, twirling to the beat of the drums, his face intense. How could Warwick not dance, surrounded by a procession of more than 11,000 Native Americans representing more than 100 tribes? How could he not dance when the sky was the shade of the turquoise jewelry worn by his adopted sisters and aunts?

From the courtyard, the 1,260 square feet of red, white and blue glass shimmers as a vivid illustration of the national anthem's inspiration. "Some have asked, `Was the flag really that big?' The answer is yes," said Sally Johnston, executive director of the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House and War of 1812 Museum, which dedicated yesterday the $2.4 million glass replica of the flag said to have flown over Fort McHenry during the British bombardment in 1814. The tiny brick museum, once the home of Baltimore seamstress Mary Pickersgill, commissioned the window to show the magnitude of the flag that she and other household members stitched in the house and a warehouse next door.

The president's father isn't often in the limelight anymore. But George Herbert Walker Bush is almost used to it. "I'm going through a bit of an identity crisis. I used to be the president of the United States. Suddenly I realized somewhere along the line that back in '91 or '92, I was being referred to as Barbara Bush's husband," Bush said. Hmm. What's it like now? "It's gotten even worse. Now I'm referred to as the father of the president, or ... as the father of the governor. I'm not called by my name."

The new Ellicott City senior center means something very simple yet important to 76-year-old Velva Howard. "It gives me an out every day," the Ellicott city resident said. "I never have to sit at home and wonder what to do." The center, which officially opened yesterday, is expected to provide seniors such as Howard with a home away from home for recreation, health services and education. The center arrives none too soon, people involved in the project agree. The Ellicott City area has 5,382 people older than 65, according to the 2000 Census, and has been without a center for nearly 15 years.
