Edith Howard-Henry delights in the kind of schedule that can either pump you up or poop you out: Formally retired from a career of teaching high school Spanish and French at Western High School, she helps chase after three young grandchildren, teaches part time at the New Community College of Baltimore, works on a host of volunteer committees, serves as an elder at Trinity Presbyterian Church, cooks gourmet, fat-free meals and still finds time to grow prize-winning...

NOTEworthy Day:Changing of the guard continues for the Orioles with the departure of Bob Brown as director of publications (he'll continue to edit the Oriole Gazette with a high degree of professionalism) and Ken Nigro as director of special projects. Nigro will remain in charge of the midwinter fantasy camp and the team's promotional cruises. Had they been placed in the expansion draft, both would have represented first-round choices.* If you're interested, the football referee who made the appropriate but unusual call that extended the Towson State-Northeastern game to one more play, which was decisive, was Robert Lynch of Ridgewood, N.J. . . . No man has done more for sports in Baltimore than Zanvyl Krieger, once an owner of the Colts, Orioles and Clippers and helpful in the building of Towson Golf and Country Club, but more important his philanthropic work at the Krieger-Kennedy Institute transcends the fun and games.

By almost any measure - exposure, esteem, money - writing for comic books is a big step down for authors who are enjoying success in TV, films or fiction. But try telling that to the big-name scribes - including horror-meister Stephen King, Joss Whedon (creator of TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and writer/director Reggie Hudlin (House Party), now head of entertainment at BET - who are taking the plunge into the pulpy world of muscle-bound superheroes. They all think they've died and gone to heaven.

I WENT TO the Ripken Minor League Experience expecting to see the Iron Man, and I ended up seeing two of them. Cal Ripken was there, of course. He needs no introduction. But if somebody had told me that diminutive Del. Sandy Rosenberg, a Democrat from Baltimore, would catch five games in four days, well, I might have thought twice about showing up with my sorry work ethic. Rosenberg, 54, is something of a fantasy camp junkie, enough so that he unabashedly appeared in a skit at the Legislative Follies in Annapolis last month in his Orioles jersey, so I wasn't surprised to see him on the bus to Staten Island on Wednesday night.

Happy 187th, Mr. Lincoln.* "The American Experience" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- "The Wright Stuff" is a quiet look at Wilbur and Orville Wright, who took time from their jobs making bicycles to invent the airplane. Not the best or most enthralling "American Experience," it's still interesting stuff. PBS.* "Partners" (9:30 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- In a sweeps week coup that can't be making NBC happy, Jennifer Aniston of "Friends" shows up as a new girlfriend who asks Bob (Jon Cryer)

"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 wrapped 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.

When Fred Kern and Alex Sotir were local football coaches, they had no idea they would be business partners one day.Their venture is Bel Air Golf, a soon-to-open driving range on Route 1 at Reckord Road, between Kingsville and Mountain Road in Harford County.The paths of Kern and Sotir have crisscrossed over the years, first as coaches, when Sotir came from Rochester, N.Y., to be the head coach at Johns Hopkins and Kern (Poly/University of Maryland) was head coach at Calvert Hall; and most recently after the Kerns' return to the area after a 20-year absence.
