Randall Luce's prose style is as slick as a melting block of ice in the Mississippi sun, as insistent as the insectlike hum of a portable fan. His yet-unpublished novel, Motherless Children, vividly evokes the Deep South in the years after World War II. It was an era when shopkeepers whiled away slow, weekday afternoons swapping stories and sipping "Co'Colas," cooled by ice chipped shard by shard from a chunk the size of a toaster. It was an era when it was considered unladylike for a woman to open a car door, when men still carried pocket handkerchiefs.

Annapolis Barge crashes into bridge An unmanned barge floated out of control Tuesday and crashed into the Severn River Bridge north of Annapolis, halting traffic over a key link with the Eastern Shore for more than two hours while the barge was untangled and inspectors determined the span was structurally sound. After receiving a 911 call about a barge adrift near Luce Creek, the Coast Guard contacted Maryland State Police, who stopped traffic over the six-lane bridge at 10:25 a.m. Seven minutes later, according to Coast Guard logs, the barge -- owned by Langenfelder Marine in Stevensville -- hit one of the bridge supports, knocking out a piece of concrete.

Coach of the YearRalph Luce, Arundel: Luce, in his 19th year at the helm of the Wildcats, watched his team pull off an unexpected sweep of the boys and girls team titles at this year Anne Arundel County Championships at Annapolis. "It's not very often that anyone, other than Severna Park, wins both the boys and girls cross country titles," said Luce, who gives much of the credit to his assistant coach, Don Higdon. "I've never had a team that was as together as this team. There was absolutely no 'I' on either team, just 'us' and that is what makes this year the best one yet."

The unmanned barge that hit the Severn River Bridge on Tuesday did not break free from its mooring, as initially reported, but dragged the mooring down the river with it, a U.S. Coast Guard investigator said yesterday. The 180-foot barge was carrying more than 600 tons of rock and tree branches when it struck the bridge at 10:32 a.m. Tuesday, Lt. Connie L. Williamson of the Coast Guard said. U.S. 50 traffic was halted as officials inspected the bridge for structural damage, but the State Highway Administration determined that the bridge was safe and it was reopened two hours later.

It's hard to say how much a performance owes to the actor who gives it and how much to the director who shapes it. In Rep Stage's production of The Belle of Amherst, it doesn't matter. Actor Tana Hicken and her husband, Donald Hicken, who directed, have worked together to produce an impressive portrait of Emily Dickinson. Dickinson (1830-1886) spent her life in a Massachusetts college town. As an adult, she never left her house but divided her time between performing everyday domestic chores and writing inward and personal poetry.

In any other city, a revival of Clare Boothe Luce's 1936 play, "The Women," would probably seem like a period piece. But in Washington in the midst of President Clinton's impeachment trial, this drama about catty, gossiping women and their cheating husbands suddenly seems like social commentary.Not that director Kyle Donnelly has updated Arena Stage's production. Far from it. Paul Tazewell's marvelous Thirties costumes -- replete with a glorious array of hats -- and Thomas Lynch's Art Deco set hew strictly to the style of pre-World War II high society.

Americans, according to Ross Perot's ex-campaign manager, are so angry at politicians that they have "disconnected with the process."Tom Luce, the high-profile Texas lawyer who ran the original volunteer Perot effort this summer, maintains that Americans aren't apathetic as much as they are enraged at their leaders.As he described the surprisingly massive outpouring of support Mr. Perot gained in a matter of months, Mr. Luce presented a plausible case for looking at this year's political developments in a positive, not a negative, vein.
