Esmeralda, a very colorful Chinese papier-mache dragon, returned to her home in the media center at Lisbon Elementary School last month, reports Principal Lou Chillemi. Lisbon parent Karen Dutton spent countless hours adding layers of papier-mache, repainting and sealing Esmeralda, a five-toed dragon. In Chinese folklore, a five-toed dragon is the emperor's and always does good deeds. Lisbon students love Esmeralda and find her a favorite place to curl up and read, according to Mr. Chillemi.

TALL SHIPS FROM around the world are scheduled to sail into Baltimore's Inner Harbor on Friday for what organizers are touting as an event to promote "cultural exchange and good will." The ships will surely be a majestic sight. But behind the stately image of one of these ships, La Esmeralda, lies a terrifying history that should not be forgotten. In 1973, in the aftermath of a bloody coup against the democratically elected government, the Chilean Navy made a special contribution to the new military junta led by Gen. Augusto Pinochet.

ALICE GHOSTLEY, 81 Award-winning actress Alice Ghostley, the Tony Award-winning actress best known on television for playing Esmeralda on Bewitched and Bernice on Designing Women, died Friday at her home in Studio City, Calif., after a long battle with colon cancer and a series of strokes. Ms. Ghostley made her Broadway debut in Leonard Sillman's New Faces of 1952. She received critical acclaim for singing "The Boston Beguine," which became her signature song. In the 1960s, she received a Tony nomination for various characterizations in the Broadway comedy The Beauty Part and eventually won for best featured actress in The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window.

A good story's a good story, which explains why TNT's "The Hunchback" makes for an enjoyable two hours.But Victor Hugo's "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is a great story, full of sex and violence and pathos and parties and religion and tolling bells and did I mention sex and violence?So why isn't "The Hunchback," which premieres at 8 p.m. tomorrow (with repeats at 10 p.m. and midnight), better than good?Probably because the story has been adapted to the screen so many times, and done so well.

PORT HUENEME, Calif. -- The Esmeralda a torture ship? Never! I always have respected the Esmeralda for her objectives. She is a floating embassy gloriously clad in white, known to Chileans as La Dama Blanca (The White Lady). The fondest memories of my youth are of the time I spent aboard her. While I was a cadet in the Chilean Naval Academy, I and everyone I knew viewed the Esmeralda as the symbol of all that was bright and good about my country. I was eagerly looking forward to sailing with my graduating class as a midshipman in 1973.

From downtown Miami, we can see the tops of the four 158-foot masts of the Chilean navy training ship, Esmeralda, towering above this city's port terminal buildings. Photographer Andre Chung and I will sail aboard the tallest of the tall ships on the six-day voyage to Norfolk en route to Baltimore. Esmeralda is part of OpSail 2000, a millennium celebration of seafaring, bringing many of the sea's most gracious vessels to Baltimore and seven other East Coast ports. We find the Esmeralda, a 29-sail barquentine, moored between -- but far from overshadowed by -- two Caribbean-bound mega-liners.

Some of my happiest sailing moments have been on a tiny Sunfish, tiller in one hand, a cold beer in the other, coasting into a dying sun on a summer's evening on the Assawoman Bay behind Fenwick Island, Del. It might be called micro-sailing. More recently, I have enjoyed what can only be described as macro-sailing. For six days, I was aboard the 371-foot barquentine Esmeralda, the Chilean navy's gracious tall ship, used for training its annual crop of 70 officer-graduates in the ancient alchemy of being a mariner.

Striking animation and cute gargoyles do not a kiddie movie make."The Hunchback of Notre Dame," the latest animated film from the Disney conglomerate, has some catchy songs and some amazing images. It also teaches lessons about prejudice and self-esteem.But it really isn't appropriate for Disney's bread-and-butter audience, the little kids who are too young for the latest action flick.Evidence: A lot of them started whining and screaming in the middle of a screening of "Hunchback" this week.

It was 1:30 a.m. yesterday and a 23-year-old woman was perched on a beam at the edge of Broadway Pier in Fells Point, chin in her hands, staring up dejectedly at the strings of white lights draped from the rigging of the Chilean four-masted ship Esmeralda. Trish Denning had been there all night. She drove to Baltimore from her home in Norfolk, Va., to meet a sailor, Juan Pablo, whom she spent time with during the ship's stop in Virginia. She dropped off a message asking him to call her hotel room, but he didn't.
