MELVILLE, N.Y. -- A gold star in the window might mean a son's death in a war. A star on the American flag signifies a state. And a star stuck on a student's work celebrates a job well done. So what is the meaning of those five-point metal stars that hang on house exteriors, sometimes above the garage or up near the gable? Turns out that homeowners just like them, plain and simple. Take Theresa and Richard Gallo of Huntington, N.Y., who last year put a maroon star over their garage after seeing stars on homes in Massachusetts while visiting a cousin there.

A suspected former leader of a CIA-trained Honduran army unit that tortured and killed civilians will be charged today with the 1982 murder of a government lawyer, a Honduran prosecutor said yesterday.The indictment of Col. Alexander Hernandez would be the first murder charge brought against a high-ranking military officer in the 1980s wave of human rights abuses that took place as Battalion 316 waged a clandestine campaign against suspected leftists.Colonel Hernandez is to be charged in the killing of Nelson Mackay Chavarria, whose disappearance was detailed in June in a four-part series in The Sun.In another significant development, the chief of the Honduran armed forces testified behind closed doors yesterday before a judge investigating another Battalion 316 case -- the 1982 kidnapping and torture of six university students.

Florida's Gov. Lawton Chiles and Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay have no less an ambition than to transform the way state government does business.They talk of breaking up Florida's ''centralized bureaucracy.'' They want to delegate services to counties and regions and put community-based boards in control. They want to create a ''more consumer-responsive, performance-driven state government.''Messrs. Chiles and MacKay believe there's really no choice -- that without stem-to-stern change, their burgeoning state of newcomers and immigrants will go broke within a decade.

Una Barry says -- and I guess this could be considered understatement -- that the birth of her second child last week at Mercy Medical Center was "completely different" from the birth of her first child five years ago. Asked to elaborate, she started with the Jacuzzi.Una Barry's 8-pound, 9-ounce son was born in a Jacuzzi -- on purpose -- and everyone associated with the event seems to be quite excited about it. You should hear the labor-and-delivery nurse, Ellen Mackay (pronounced "Ma'kie")
