Playwright Paula Vogel has said about "The Baltimore Waltz" -- the play she wrote in response to her brother's death -- that she can look at the audience and tell who's a member of "the community of loss."That kind of loss is what is referred to in Jacqueline Reingold's bittersweet "Lost and Found," which is receiving a touching premiere at AXIS Theatre.The play begins, however, with a more literal definition of "lost." A vacationing New Yorker named Sara loses her way in rural Colorado.Although a good Samaritan comes to her aid, Sara is initially more afraid of him than of Colorado's dark, forbidding woods.

I read with anticipation Paul Richter's article "Lost Iraqi Billions Found" (Oct. 28) with the assurance these funds would be accounted for and shown to be spent for purposes intended. Unfortunately, Mr. Richter seems to list the billions not found. We read about $100 bills shipped in shrink wrapped bundles (was this to insure, using cash, its spending would not be tracked, as in drug laundered cash?). Then we read that the "audit" found that "most" had been turned over to Iraqi authorities.

At first glance, Lost and Found looks like a typical, average tenpin team -- four guys who work at the same place, see each other at the local bowling centers and have averages that are, well, average.The team consists of team captain Bob Flowers, John Gove, Helmuth Lingwai and anchor James Brogan.What that "average team" did was go head-to-head with teams drawn from all over the mid-Atlantic area and hold its own in one of the most prestigious tournaments of the year, the WSBA team event in York, Pa., over the summer months.

In her hands, a scrap becomes a story. Jessie Grow fishes through a box full of what looks to be junk, pulling out a 2-inch fragment of clay pipe. It brings to mind a time long ago - hard to imagine now - when men, women and children routinely smoked tobacco, thinking it was good for their health. A rust-eaten nail evokes the late 1600s, when settlers near the South River built small homes out of wood, never realizing they wouldn't last 30 years in termite-infested Maryland. And a chunk of pottery evokes Colonial days, when traders from the Far East shipped their fine porcelain to the mid-Atlantic region in exchange for tobacco - the crop that gave birth to London Town, a bustling community that served as a major seaport for 90 years, then silently passed away.

Once a year, the black hole that gobbles up children's belongings makes amends.At Anne Arundel County's Sunset Elementary School, 42 sweat shirts, 24 hats, two dozen mateless gloves plus two pairs, 21 lunch boxes, 18 jackets, two pairs of shoes, two hoods, one water bottle and a bevy of other rumpled items beckoned to the 675 children: "Take me, I'm yours."First-grader Samantha Pegg took a blue knit Power Rangers glove."It's mine," she said confidently. "I have one like it."She had lost the glove, who knows when, and had forgotten until the contents of the Lost and Found were laid out on three decks of risers in the school cafeteria.

"Lost and Found" isn't exactly the film you'd expect from David Spade, whose picture appears in the dictionary alongside the word "smarmy." That's bad news for fans of Spade's TV work on "Saturday Night Live" and (especially) "Just Shoot Me," but it makes this film a lot more watchable than it could be.Not that "Lost and Found" is some sort of minor masterpiece. Any movie that resorts to having a character dig through dog feces for yucks (not to mention the tired anti-convention of having old people talk dirty)

A lot of folks will be going home a little lighter from Salt Lake City. Personal possessions, thousands of them, are ending up at the Winter Games lost and found, a nondescript building on the edge of downtown. Anita Corbett says her center receives about 1,000 items a day. Each is boxed or bagged and labeled with the date and location of the find. The most common lost item? Gloves, singles or in pairs clinging to each other by a clip but separated from their mother jacket. But so far, no one has turned in a USA Roots beret.

OCEAN CITY -- Perched at the top of his chair, the lifeguard swooped his orange signal flags, signing the letters of a little girl's name. "S-A-R-A," said Crew Chief Ben Davis, interpreting the code from his spot several hundred feet down the beach. His sun-bleached eyebrows bunched in a squint. "S-E-V - she's 7. Her trunk color is ... blue." And so Sara7Blue became the first lost child of this shadeless Ocean City Saturday.

KARMAIYA, Nepal -- The talisman tied above the entrance to Harsha Bahadur Bot's house is a bundle of rice, the flawed foundation of life in the plains of Nepal. Rice sculpts the landscape into diked squares of green or gold. The diesel pop-pop-pop of the rice mill is the sound of a village from afar, its beating heart. Rice is the basis of every meal, and a family's supply is bank account and insurance policy rolled into one. That the grain has the power to conjure good or ill seems obvious to Bot, 45, a farmer and fisherman.

Buying a car is a major financial commitment. So when shopping for that special ride, you should consider more than the sticker price.The total cost of operating a new car for five years -- insurance, depreciation, maintenance, repairs, fuel, financing, taxes and licensing -- often can exceed the purchase price, says the Institute of Certified Financial Planners, a Denver trade group.For example: You could spend $20,000 over five years to operate a $15,000 car.Operating costs will affect how much money you have for other things, such as vacations, saving for retirement, eating out and investing.
