After a winter like the one that seems like it ended only a few days ago, it's natural for conversations to turn to matters relating to when it's good policy to close schools because of snow, ice or some other inclement weather. The starting point in making such decisions always should be that it is bad public policy to put children at heightened risk of injury, or worse, and it's better to err on the side of caution than to risk safety in the name of preventing the loss of a snow day. Invariably, however, geography comes into play.

There's a Greene Turtle less than five miles away from Playoff Sports Bar and Grill, which opened in Reisterstown early in the year. A Buffalo Wild Wings sits even closer, a quarter-mile down the street. With standard pub fare and more TVs than a Best Buy showroom, all three spots cater to sports fans who care more about the view of the game than an extensive beer list. But if you've been to one Green Turtle or Buffalo Wild Wings, you've been to them all. So the question remains: Can the independently owned Playoff differentiate itself enough from the chains to emerge as the best option?

Next year, the American Booksellers Association convention will set up in Chicago, which is supposed to become the permanent home of the annual Memorial Day gathering after years of bouncing from Washington to New York to Las Vegas to Miami. The Second City will have to do some work, though, to be as flamboyant a host as Los Angeles was this year.The surreal setting of Los Angeles proved the perfect backdrop for the latest ABA gathering, which ended Tuesday. In recent years, the convention has become more circus than business get-together, more hype than fostering good books; less about reading and more about show business.

Chapel Hill, N.C. -- THE U.S. military is now more alienated from its civilian leadership than at any time in American history, and more vocal about it.The dispute between the White House and top military officials over the use of force in Bosnia was only one in a long line of open disagreements that have sometimes crossed the line into outright insults.Last year a two-star general was retired from the Air Force for publicly disparaging President Clinton, and the chief of staff felt obliged to demand in public that people in his service show the president proper respect.

No barrier remains to the North American Free Trade Agreement coming into force on New Year's Day. The legislatures of Canada, the United States and Mexico ratified it. What remained was the refusal of the new Liberal Party prime minister of Canada, Jean Chretien, to "proclaim" what a lame-duck Conservative parliament enacted. But after NAFTA's uphill victory in the U.S. House of Representatives, Mr. Chretien lost his ally in this business. If he was going to obstruct, he was going to do it alone and in a spotlight.

Forget for the moment about hem lengths. The big news for next fall is skirts that swing.At Valentino, flat box pleats whip into motion when the wearer moves. Emanuel Ungaro favors delicate crystal pleats all around that flutter gently beneath fitted body lines.And Yves Saint Laurent likes a modest flare to the skirt beneath his curving waistlines.In their early "pre-fall" collections, these major European designers have not attempted to rock the fashion establishment. The vast majority of styles stop above the knees, with only an occasional venture to calf length or below.

I got a prompt recently from Twitter, the micro-blogging Web site, that said I could start receiving updates from Britney Spears' very own Twitter page. And would you look at that: She wished me (and the rest of the world) "Happy Holidays" on Dec. 24. A week before that, it seemed like I was touring Asia with the pop star herself when she tweeted to let me know, "I love Japan! I think all the tiny cars are so cute." At least I think it was the unsinkable Ms. Spears. Now, I can't be so sure.

Bart Scott is no longer getting attention for the wrong reasons. Rare are the emotional outbursts that earned the Ravens linebacker penalty flags and additional scrutiny from NFL officials. Nearly as infrequent are the vitriolic comments that garnered him scorn from media pundits and his opponents. An additional topic that has not surfaced with much regularity is the possibility that tomorrow's AFC wild-card playoff game against the Miami Dolphins could be Scott's last as a Raven. But Scott, who is only 28 years old, isn't worried.

FROSTBURG - Corey Copeland made four straight free throws in the final 31 seconds, and Kevin Mickens added another as No.11-ranked Mount St. Joseph stunned 17-time champion DeMatha, 57-56, last night in the the 41st Alhambra Invitation at Frostburg State University. The Gaels (23-10) hit 11 of 15 from the foul line in the final period to spring the upset. DeMatha, coached by Morgan Wootten (1,240 wins), was seeking its fourth straight Alhambra title. Mount St. Joseph is in its third trip to the boys basketball tournament, and, oddly, in its last trip in 1976, knocked off DeMatha in the first round, 74-71, and went on to take third place.

After outpacing the U.S. economy in three of the last four years, Maryland is expected to follow the nation's lead and experience a slight slowdown of its own this year. "There are signs that Maryland is now beginning to join the nation in a soft landing," said Anirban Basu, chief economist for RESI Research & Consulting, the economic forecasting arm of Towson University. "The slowdown is going to become more pronounced in the early part of 2001. There's no question that's going to happen.

GREEN RIDGE STATE FOREST - The vibrant orange-yellows of hickory tree leaves cut a swath across the face of this mountain in Allegany County, twirling through the lighter yellows of the poplars and brushing up against the maroons of the oaks and dogwoods. Here and there, the fiery splash of red maple pops out in what state Department of Natural Resources officials say is the brightest display of autumn color in years, brought on by the damp, mild summer of 2000. The weather pattern stretched out the growing season and the gradual onset of autumn has lengthened the time for trees to go dormant, explains Maureen Brooks, a state forest ranger.
