WASHINGTON - In a horrifying way, the explosion that tore apart the giant tent that served as a dining hall at an American military base near Mosul, Iraq, was neither unusual nor unexpected. Soldiers at Forward Operating Base Marez south of Mosul had already described in e-mails to their families their unease about the safety of the dining hall - a long, high tent pitched atop a concrete pad - and the ability of Iraqi insurgents to target the base. Easter Sunday was particularly bad, as Adam Szafarn, a 23-year-old specialist with the Maine National Guard, told his family.

Poor supervision, miscommunication among staff members and lax security policies created the opportunity for two male residents to briefly escape from a Baltimore County detention center, the Charles H. Hickey Jr. School, in September, according to a report released Wednesday. The report, issued by the Juvenile Justice Monitoring Unit, which evaluates facilities under the jurisdiction of the Department of Juvenile Services, recommends that all department employees, not just the Hickey staff, be retrained on security policies and be equipped with radios and distress alarms.

Michel said he did not realize the color relation of his Ford Explorer to Santa's sleigh. "This is just a coincidence," he said. "The sweater, however, was deliberate."

A $10 million campus center that houses athletic facilities, a dance studio, a fitness center and a dining hall was dedicated yesterday at Garrison Forest School, although workers are still putting the finishing touches on the 53,000-square- foot building. G. Peter O'Neill, head of Garrison Forest, called the new center a "wonderful dream of ours" and credited the philanthropy of women, all of them alumnae, for making the dream come true at the all-girls school. "Women were the largest donors to the school," O'Neill said, with more than $7 million for the project coming from them.

Think you know the type of day that unfolds at Ravens training camp this summer? Think again. 6:30 a.m. The players are roused from their sleep courtesy of a wake-up call. Where's the snooze button? 6:30 to 8 a.m. All players must report to the hotel dining hall for breakfast. Eating is optional, and coffee is the most popular item of the morning. 7:45 a.m. Fans begin arriving at McDaniel College. Hardier folks will have been there 30 minutes earlier to grab prime seating along the fence for autographs.

As college freshmen head off to the dorms for the first time and make the transition from Mom's kitchen to campus dining halls, weight gain is common. It's often called the "freshman 15. " But putting on 15 pounds doesn't have to happen, according to Rebecca Myrowitz, a nutritionist with the Greater Baltimore Medical Center's Comprehensive Obesity Management Program. Question: What is the "freshman 15" and what are the most common causes? Answer: The "freshman 15" is when college freshman are away from home for the first time and may gain an average of 15 pounds over the year.

The police chief at Morgan State University personally intervened this month to reverse and expunge the arrest of a scholarship student accused of theft and resisting arrest in a dispute that began over an unpaid $6.50 tab at a campus dining hall, according to documents obtained by The Sun and court papers filed yesterday. After personally persuading prosecutors at Central Booking to drop charges filed by his own officers, Chief Adrian J. Wiggins pushed for official police statements to be rewritten as if no arrest occurred, according to internal police records and statements obtained by The Sun. Two campus officers have been disciplined for failing to obey the chief's "unarrest" requests, and they filed a lawsuit yesterday in Circuit Court to have their punishments reviewed, Michael Marshall, their attorney, said.

Baltimore magazine has just come out with a list of 20 "Top Singles." Among them: Del. Jill P. Carter, who is billed as a 40-year-old lawyer and legislator whose worst habit is "avoiding the inevitable." I'd say the habit's working for her. Carter has managed to avoid the passage of time - at least in the magazine. Carter's date of birth, according to the Baltimore City voter registration form she filed in 1982, is June 18, 1963. That makes her 44. Asked why the magazine was under the impression that she'd just hit the big 4-0, Carter said: "Well, it's what I said.

DEGANYA A, Israel -- The founders of Israel's oldest kibbutz, Deganya A, battled malaria and searing heat and even repelled an attack by a Syrian tank with Molotov cocktails to defend their communal way of life, a place where each person and every job is regarded as equal. But nearly 100 years after the establishment of Deganya A on the lush shores of the Sea of Galilee, the fourth generation of kibbutz members admitted defeat last month. By an overwhelming majority, kibbutz members voted to shed their socialist, utopian aspirations in favor of a new free market system that empowers the individual, puts more money in members' pockets and, sadly for some, turns their once-unique community into a place much like the rest of the world.

As the first students amble in for lunch at Goucher College's Heubeck Dining Hall, chef Clinton Elliott promotes his daily special: tender ravioli filled with wild mushroom goat cheese from FireFly Farms Organic in Garrett County. If Elliott's homemade pasta doesn't entice, students may choose from a cornucopia of other dishes prepared with local ingredients. The baked chicken breasts hail from Springfield Farm in Sparks. Chestnuts from another chef's Baltimore County farm bring earthy flavor to the stuffing.

Alan Dolid, executive chef at Western Maryland College, remembers the conversation that made him realize he could do more for students than just cook their meals. The setting was the dining hall. The subject was seafood. Female student, staring at plate: "What's that?" Dolid: "Shrimp." The student remained perplexed, having never encountered a shrimp. Six years later, eating has become part of the education at the Westminster college. At both regular meals and in special culinary programs, students are being exposed to an array of entrees -- from steamed mussels to roasted Chilean sea bass.

The group of young prospects were treated to the typical tour of McDaniel College's amenities: a glimpse of a few classrooms, the dorms and, of course, the dining hall. Less typical were the prospects themselves - the youngest of whom was 5-year-old John-John Fields. Fields joined about two dozen elementary and middle school pupils from the Westminster Boys and Girls Club who visited the "campus on the hill," which many of them said they could see from their neighboring backyards along the school's borders on Pennsylvania Avenue and Union Street.
