He told police that he stood over his father with a gun for 20 to 25 minutes before shooting him in the head. He told them that after also shooting his mother and brothers, he tried to make the house look like it had been hit by burglars. And he told the detectives investigating the fatal shootings in his upscale Cockeysville neighborhood that he killed his two younger brothers because he thought it was the only way he could get away with killing his parents. These statements from Nicholas W. Browning - highlighted in court testimony during a July hearing at which a judge ruled the 16-year-old would be tried for murder in adult court rather than in the juvenile system - will be the focus of a pre-trial hearing today in Baltimore County Circuit Court.

SUMMER JOBS are good for kids; they teach them responsibility. That is what I kept telling myself this week as the burglar alarm in a friend's house screeched, as the police car rolled up, and as I punched the telephone frantically trying to reach someone who could tell me how to stop the earsplitting noise. This was a summer job gone awry, a dad fumbling as he tried to perform his kid's duties. It began when friends who live near us left town for a few days. They hired one of our sons to pick up the mail and keep an eye on their house.

Gina Spadafori has the week off. This column originally was written for Sept. 8, 1990. Hidden in the thicket behind the lovely old house, we sat together, my friend and I, and waited for the wild ones to come out and play.The sun had fallen, and between us and her house, a patio light spread a pool of brightness across the concrete, the light playing crazily off pie tins filled with cat food. The night was warm and quiet, all sound dampened by the dense foliage that embraced the property.

I would like to keep the Christopher Clarke story alive for another day, and this time with the photographs from his funeral. The deaths of young men in Baltimore come and go like flashes of intermittent gunfire on some dark, distant battlefront. But we should pay attention to this one. We should not let it go. We should not shake our heads and quickly turn the page. We should talk to the boy's mother. We should look at the photographs. We should be outraged by the senseless death of Christopher Clarke on Tuesday, March 13 -- at least as outraged as many were over the arrest, the same day, of a 7-year-old for riding a dirt bike.

A Memorable Place Years later, Bonaire still feels like home By Lauren Magnuson SPECIAL TO THE SUN It has been said that you can never go home again. The fear of returning to a former home and finding things radically changed caused me to put off a long-promised trip back to the island of Bonaire, where I had lived for 12 years and had given birth to my three children. When we left the island in 1994, I promised the children that one day we would return. But the years passed, and soon the children, now adolescents, would be leaving home for their own journeys.

*TC Between the late-winter snowfalls, on a visit a friend's house here in town, I paused ever so briefly to notice a little patch of crocuses growing beside the concrete walkway. A few feet away, where it had been shoveled away, lay the remains of the previous snow, weary and soiled. By contrast, the flowers nearby were pristine and delicate, fresh and new, with their purple petals and bright saffron centers.I paused only long enough to notice and say to myself, ''How pretty.'' Later, passing them again on the way out to my car, I took another moment to luxuriate in the thought that, after a dreary winter, spring was at last on its way.At home the same day or thereabouts, I received in the mail a greeting card from a friend in Ireland.

If Joseph Aaron Demarest were still alive, he would be 23, and his family believes he would still be painting rural landscapes - his specialty - and sharing laughs with his younger sister. Instead, he is locked in time as the 17-year-old who, on Sept. 3, 1996, cheerily waved goodbye to his dad as he headed out to a friend's house after having dinner at home in Gambrills. His family never saw him again. Anne Arundel County police believe Demarest hopped into a red pickup truck with Stefan Tyson Bell and Christopher Allen Bolen, two teen-age friends from the neighborhood.

MOST DADS devote about a nanosecond to thinking deep thoughts about Father's Day. Most of us are content to receive some token acknowledgement - a card, a cigar, a sports car filled with champagne - that shows family members are relatively happy to have us around. The pace of these proceedings is supposed to be fast; no lengthy speeches or long sentimental disquisition. Dads have a notoriously short attention span, even when we are the topic of conversation. Yet for some reason - maybe it is age - this June found me taking a long view, looking back on 20-plus years of fatherhood.

Carlene Coale of Fallston figures peace of mind -- and the life of her daughter -- is worth a little awkwardness once in a while. So before she lets her 16-year-old visit a friend's house for the first time, she asks the friend's parents: Is there a gun in the house? Only when the answer is no -- or if it's yes but she's told the gun is locked away and unloaded, does she allow the visit. Only once in three years has this caused a problem, she says. An angry father told her it was none of her business and refused to say anything further about it. "I told him if my daughter is coming to your house, it is my business," says Coale, who subsequently refused to let her daughter visit.
