I'm sorry, but I found nothing remotely amusing or cute about the article on dogs in Halloween costumes in the Sunrise section of your paper ("Dressed up to the canines," Oct. 15). I am not a hell-bent animal rights activist, but the photographs of small dogs in silly costumes just didn't seem like the appropriate way to treat these creatures. While I am sure it was not an abusive situation by any means, it was a useless "filler" article with truly inane photos. I expect a higher level of integrity from your paper.

Officials with the Sykesville Police Department hit the streets on two Segways at the town's annual fall festival early this month, and rolled them out again this past week at Century High School's homecoming parade. Donated to the station by the Montgomery County Police Department, the Segways have already proven an important tool in helping police patrol the town and stay connected to residents, according to Sykesville Police Chief John Williams Jr. "They come in quite handy," Williams said.

Peter Mulligan, who earned Northeast Conference Rookie of the Year honors for UMBC last season, was granted his release from the school on Wednesday. Mulligan, a 6-foot-5 small forward on the men's basketball team, wants to transfer to one of the bigger conferences in the East (Atlantic Coast, Big East, Atlantic 10). So far, Villanova and Boston College have shown interest. "I've always thought I had potential to play at a higher level," said Mulligan, who averaged 15.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in his freshman season.

STATE-SUPPORTED, all-male military education was in the spotlight again last week, as the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case involving Virginia Military Institute's obstinate claim that the presence of women would substantially change the nature of its educational mission and rob young men of a valuable option in higher education. That claim met with great skepticism from the justices, and rightly so.If that skepticism came as no surprise, the court's seeming dismissal of another aspect of this case did raise some eyebrows.

As a sport, yoga is definitely not all about competition and progressing to a higher level, which is good, because it forces many of us to let go of our annoying tendencies to be competitive and drive ourselves to a higher level. Or so I thought. Semester by semester, I've been moving into a smug yoga zone wherein I started to believe I possessed core muscles that could support my actual body weight. Fortunately, last week I had a very Zen experience that brought me back to my center.

"But it's not going to be like a light switch being flipped. We're going to have to get our emotional level higher, and we have to come at it with an even higher level of intensity than it's at right now."

Orioles manager Buck Showalter and acting bench coach John Russell wanted to deliver the news to Matt Wieters, but there was the small matter of finding the young catcher on a day the players didn't have to report until much later. Their search took all of a couple of seconds. About four hours before the series finale with the Atlanta Braves on Sunday, Wieters was stationed in front of his laptop in the visiting clubhouse at Turner Field, watching scouting tape of the Texas Rangers hitters the Orioles will face Monday.

There's yet another downside to our warming climate: bigger and badder poison ivy. When researchers adjusted carbon dioxide levels to match those anticipated during the next 50 years, poison ivy in an experimental pine forest grew much faster and was far more toxic than the plant that annoys us today. In fact, the experimental plants grew twice as fast as normal poison ivy, and their leaves contained a more allergenic form of urushiol, the carbon-based compound that causes contact dermatitis, scientists said.

PHILADELPHIA - There is the weekly Terrell Owens sideshow. One week, it's T.O. vs. Randy Moss or Jeff Garcia. Another week, it's T.O. takes on Ricky Manning or Steve Mariucci. This week, it's T.O. against Ray Lewis. Somewhere lost among all the theatrics is the Owens and Donovan McNabb Show, possibly the best on-the-field entertainment in the NFL. It could be the beginning of another special pair. Johnny Unitas had Raymond Berry and Joe Montana had Jerry Rice. Peyton Manning has Marvin Harrison and Daunte Culpepper has Moss.

Arsenic-based pesticides sprayed around Winfield Elementary School appear to be the cause of elevated levels of arsenic in water from one of the school's two wells, Carroll County health and school officials said yesterday. Although the measured level of arsenic fell well below the current federal standard of 50 parts per billion in drinking water, the well was capped this week and is being used only to supplement the school's water supply until a new well can be drilled, said Raymond Prokop, the school system's acting facilities director and construction supervisor.

WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Colin L. Powell admonished Arab leaders yesterday, saying they should have shown "a higher level of outrage" over the beheading of an American civilian in Iraq after they had expressed furor over the mistreatment of Iraqi detainees at a prison outside Baghdad. "When you are outraged at what happened at the prison," Powell said on Fox News Sunday, "you should be equally, doubly outraged" over the execution of Nicholas Berg. Berg, 26, was kidnapped while seeking work in Iraq for his communications business, and a videotape of his execution was posted on an Islamic Web site last week.
