MALIBU, Calif. -- By the light of a full moon, as fingers of fire reached into the night, the women howled like wolves, their primal sounds acknowledging and embracing a wild feminine spirit they no longer would deny.Their cries celebrated both their pain and their glory, underscoring a commitment to themselves to believe in their intuitive instincts and finally to unleash their creativity.Last weekend in the Malibu mountains, nearly two dozen women bTC walked into the woods with Santa Monica psychologist Pamela Hogan for a retreat based on "Women Who Run With the Wolves," the runaway best seller by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, a Denver psychologist.

Jerry Greenspan has been running the Fun City arcade in Ocean City for 40 years, long enough to see children who played games there grow up and bring their children to continue the summer boardwalk tradition. Now he wonders how long it can go on. "We barely made it last year," said Greenspan, who owns Fun City and is a partner in Sportland, two of the three largest boardwalk arcades. "If the landscape continues the way it's going, I don't see how we can stay in business much longer.

The UPS driver looked a little befuddled when he walked into Howl on Chestnut Ave., in Baltimore yesterday afternoon. “There's a cat out here in a carrier,” he told Robin McDonald, owner of the natural pet-supply store. She followed him outside and lo and behold, there sat what appeared to be a Maine Coon mix in a carrier with a note: “Very nice cat. Please help! Jean-Pierre is his name.” He looked skinny and scruffy and his hair was sparse, but McDonald brought Jean-Pierre into the shop and opened the carrier door.

At 7:45 p.m. Friday, Power Plant Live's plaza lies nearly empty. Here, it's too early for lines to snake out of Bar Baltimore or Have a Nice Day Cafe, but a few people wait at the entrance to Howl at the Moon. Inside, the piano bar's already packed, with standing room only. Two men sit at a pair of black pianos on a small stage, both nailing the keys while one belts out "Banana Boat Song (Day-O)" from the middle of Howl at the Moon. A drum kit and bass guitar are also onstage but go unused most of the night.

Jean-Pierre, a Maine coon cat, had a whirlwind of a December, but has, to say the least, landed on his feet. That's thanks to Robin McDonald, owner of the Howl natural pet food and supply store in Hampden, who's become something of a guardian angel to area pets in need. Left on the front porch of Howl in a carrier with a note, Jean-Pierre was found by an UPS driver who alerted McDonald about the involuntary visitor. McDonald took the feline inside, ferried him to a veterinarian for a once-over and flea treatment, and posted his photo on Facebook.

I see no point in living if I can't be beautiful!" declares dashing, vain young wizard Howl (Christian Bale), bereft that his hair has turned from blond to a hideous orange. "You think you've got it bad?" asks his endearingly lumpy housekeeper, Sophie (Jean Simmons). "I've never once been beautiful in my entire life." Actually, Sophie was prettier than she knew before the jealous Witch of the Waste (Lauren Bacall) mistook her for one of Howl's many fleeting crushes and transformed her from a young maiden (Emily Mortimer)

Editor's note: An unusual book binds two children together in a suspenseful mystery. The house was dark. One candle was lit. Andrew shook as he opened the cover of a spooky book. Thunder rumbled far away as Andrew gulped a fistful of popcorn. Carefully he turned each dusty page. And this is what that spooky book said ... Once there was a girl alone in a great big house. Lightning cracked the sky, and she shook as she opened the cover of a spooky book. "Same as me," whispered Andrew. "She had no one to play with, and she found a spooky book!

Helen Brierley turned off her heat pump and has been air-drying her dishes. Amina Gauhar hangs her laundry on a clothes rack and even avoids the vacuum cleaner. Both have turned their thermostats way down. But despite efforts to conserve energy, their utility bills - like those of other Maryland residents - have doubled or even tripled during the past few months. As Maryland regulators and utility executives scramble to explain the sticker shock to thousands of angry customers, the Maryland Public Service Commission set up a hearing this week to address the sharp number of complaints.

As a chorus of tubas played "The First Noel" at Baltimore's Inner Harbor yesterday, Santa Claus started a fistfight with a figure he claimed was a Santa impersonator. The two Santas rolled on the bricks, swinging and clawing at each other as children watched, confused. "It's a Santa brawl!" someone shouted. But careful observers in the crowd wondered whether either combatant was the authentic Jolly Old Elf. One Santa, it seems, was wearing a gas mask, the other a skull mask beneath a red cap. And, when the scrap was over, the two Santas helped each other up - to the applause of 13 other Santas - some wearing sunglasses, combat boots and fishnet stockings along with the standard red-and-white coats.

You've got to have a lot of moxie to call your own movie Full of It, especially when it's as bad as the low-grade teen comedy currently bearing that title. A wish fulfillment fantasy of staggering silliness, both smirkingly cutesy and gratingly offensive, this is one for the movie ash heap. Watching it, your heart goes out to the actors, floundering through the cliches and trying to amuse us with this frazzled cautionary tale of the dangers of falsehood. On hand for most of the floundering is the young star, Marylander Ryan Pinkston as pint-sized high school senior Sam Leonard, newly arrived at a school whose mascots are the "Awesome Possums."
