"I'm so happy my husband doesn't know who I am," Carolyn Williams said. No, she's not a misbehaving housewife on some tacky TV show. Williams was attributing her fresh rush of cheer to her participation in the inaugural BSO Academy, which will wrap up an intensive week of activities for adult amateur musicians with a "donor appreciation concert" and party on Saturday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Nearly 50 people from around the region paid up to $1,650 for this new community outreach venture by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, a camp for grownups who wanted to take their musical interests to a different level.

EMMITSBURG -- We are ready for the worst. People who had been through it before said it would be tough. Grueling. We smile, innocently. And after the first session of Wes Unseld's/Gatorade Fantasy Camp, we pooh-pooh, "Piece of cake!"THE ORDEAL: The 35 campers -- 33 men and two women -- ardivided into four teams as Unseld, the Washington Bullets coach, thanks all for signing up, explaining, "I have to thank you, because I don't have any idea why anybody would want to do this."No sooner is the welcoming address over when we are stretching and knocking off two laps around Knott Arena on the Mount St. Mary's campus.

The last time Bill Moleton was in boot camp, there was a war in Vietnam and 180 pounds on his 6-foot frame. Three decades and 90 pounds later, Moleton, has enlisted again - in the new "boot camp" fitness program put on by the Howard County Office on Aging. A former Air Force sergeant with a commanding baritone and a body like an action figure leads Moleton and other seniors in an hour of push-ups, crunches and other calisthenics - toned down, of course, from the rigors of a real military boot camp, but macho enough to draw folks who believe Jazzercise is for wimps.

The Ravens believe they are on the verge of making the NFL playoffs, and by the midpoint of the 1998 season, they should have a pretty good idea about the validity of those projections.The regular-season schedule released yesterday by the NFL shows the Ravens will be tested early and often, particularly by their AFC Central Division rivals.The team will christen its new stadium at Camden Yards at 1: 01 p.m. on Sept. 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the reigning divisional champions who have beaten the Ravens in three of their four meetings.

NATIONAL Terrorism enemy undefined The Bush administration "has yet to arrive at a clear definition of the enemy or the aim in the war on terrorism," according to a new report published by a leading researcher at the U.S. Army War College. And the cost of lacking a coherent strategy is quickly rising, the report says. [Page 3a] Men rescued from mountain Three men attempting to climb Canada's highest peak were rescued after being stranded for five days on the storm-battered mountain near the Alaska border.

Orioles general manager Roland Hemond told the audience a the Washington Touchdown Club yesterday that the team is "considering" taking a look at Jim Palmer.If that's the case, the Orioles are behind several other clubs in checking out the comeback-minded Hall of Famer who lives in their own town."Quite a few teams are interested in Jim," said Michael Maas of Shapiro and Robinson, which represents Palmer. "Several have sent scouts to Florida to look at him but they've asked us not to say anything yet."

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Well, here we go. The Orioles are seducing us. Isn't that something?It wasn't supposed to happen. Not this spring. Not with a team coming off a 95-loss season. But here we go. The Orioles are seducing us with their starting pitching.We know better. We do. We don't chew tobacco but we know a few things, right? We know it is only spring, that the games don't matter, that mirages are a staple of the season. We know it is an unwise man who invests in March's progress.No matter.

Well, what did you expect? The underachieving Orioles reflect an organization in disarray. They lack direction, they lack cohesion, they lack a plan.A free trip to Orioles Fantasy Camp -- the one without Brooks Robinson -- to anyone who can answer this question: Is this team trying to win now, or build for the future?No one knows.It would be helpful if the Orioles could figure out what they're trying to accomplish. It would be even more helpful if someone with vision was calling the shots.

Middle of the day, middle of the homestand, middle of the season.A fine time to change policies, a fine time to alienate fans, a fine time to panic.Why should anyone be surprised?On the field and off, the Orioles make it up as they go along.Back in the old days, when people cared about baseball, the Orioles would exchange any ticket just about any time, knowing they'd sell out regardless.As of yesterday, no more.Plenty of seats are available, and someone must suffer.Who would that be, Peter Angelos, oh man of the people, oh friend of the little guy, oh champion of the working stiff?
