MOSCOW -- A government that is straining to provide its people with decent food and comfortable housing has at last hit upon one precious commodity it can lavish on a long-suffering population: light.Russia has decided to give its sunshine-starved people a double dose of daylight-saving time this year. Early tomorrow morning, clocks will advance one hour. The last Sunday in March, they'll jump ahead one more hour.Russian leaders say they'll save 3.5 billion kilowatt hours of electricity with the change -- and more than 700,000 tons of heating oil that would have generated that much power -- which will aid the strapped economy.

GREENWICH, Conn. -- On Tuesday nights, after people in this moneyed town have finished dinner, Tonya White, a fourth-generation Greenwich resident, bundles her toddler into her car and, with her 58-year-old mother, goes hunting for junk.As the boy nods off, mother and daughter cruise the lanes of nearby communities such as Rye, N.Y., and Port Chester, N.Y., and rummage with flashlights through homeowners' trash, sifting out old lamps, dolls, pots, quilts -- anything thrown away as clutter or too much trouble to repair.

Cal Ripken Sr. would have been proud. Yesterday's single-elimination playoffs in the Cal Ripken 12-and-Under World Series in Aberdeen were full of sound, fundamental baseball, the "Ripken way." All four games were decided by one run each. U.S. games Oahu, Hawaii 3, Lexington, Ky. 2: Fans will remember Jeremy Fujimoto's hit over the right fielder's head with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth for Oahu, giving left-hander Jarrett Arakawa his second win in the Cal Ripken 12-and-Under World Series playoffs.

Tropical Storm Charley stayed away from opening day of the Cal Ripken World Series at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen yesterday until the third game. The rain started falling in the bottom of the fifth inning of the 12-and-under tournament as Kennewick, Wash., was collecting hits and runs to overcome an 8-1 deficit at the hands of Greenwich, Conn. Kennewick cut it to 8-6 with two outs and a man on when play was stopped and the tarp put on the field. Play never resumed and the Kennewick-Greenwich game will pick up at the point of stoppage and be completed at Cal Sr.'s Yard (next door to Ripken Stadium)

NEW YORK - Behind the landmark Judson Memorial Church, which frames the sky south of Washington Square Park through its ornate campanile, there is a quaint, if somewhat dilapidated, block of mustard and red brick houses. Preservationists say two historic treasures reside on this unassuming Greenwich Village swath: a house where Edgar Allan Poe once lived and a town house renovated by McKim, Mead & White. By the end of the summer, the stretch of four-story to six-story buildings on West Third Street between Thompson and Sullivan Streets will most likely be gone.

NEW YORK -- Restaurants come and go so quickly here that a first-year anniversary is a milestone to be celebrated under almost any circumstances. But the odds against Peanut Butter & Co. seemed particularly long when it opened in December 1998. The Greenwich Village restaurant serves, well, peanut butter. It has 15-plus varieties of peanut butter sandwiches and five peanut butter-flavored desserts. Fresh-ground peanut butter in various flavors is available to go in 16-ounce jars. The menu features milk and egg creams, not alcohol, usually the big profit item for a restaurant.

It was a celebrated case from the outset. A bubbly, blond 15-year-old bludgeoned to death in a gated enclave of mansions and manicured lawns in Greenwich, Conn. The primary suspects, the boys across the street, were the sons of wealth and privilege and the nephews of Ethel Kennedy. For nearly 25 years, the slaying of Martha Moxley remained one of the thousands of unsolved crimes in America. But as most of the others languished in dusty police files, celebrity kept this case alive. Celebrities and Moxley's mother, Dorthy, a dignified, genteel woman who patiently persisted, held the spotlight on the teen-ager's slaying.

Most tourists don't have the time or the inclination to test London's version of a light rail line, but this transit conveyance shuttles along the northern bank of the River Thames.One day last week I found myself momentarily stranded at the eastern terminus on a rainy platform overlooking the river, the clipper ship Cutty Sark and the Borough of Greenwich. And, in the distance sat the tower of the astronomical observatory where scientists calculate Greenwich Mean Time. I stood squarely at the Prime Meridian.

And the price tag of more than $1 billion seems a bit high to some around here.
