Annapolis will brim with military parades, concerts and air shows next week as thousands of people descend on the state capital for the Naval Academy graduation. Fears about terrorism have led to tighter security at the campus gates, but the public will still have ample opportunity to participate in the week of pageantry leading up to Friday's graduation ceremony. Visitors will be permitted to walk onto academy grounds to watch a raft of shows and rituals, from crisp dress parades to the annual rite of passage that has freshmen climbing a lard-slathered obelisk.

An offensive explosion it wasn't, but neither was it another tie.And so Severn head-coach Renie Sotiropoulos was delighted after a deflected shot gave the top-ranked Admirals a hard-earned, 1-0 win over ninth-ranked St. Mary's yesterday.Severn, which had scored just two goals in its last four games -- all ties -- was still the leader in the Association of Independent Schools A Division Applebee League at 1-0-2, 5-0-4 overall."I was bracing myself for another tie," said Sotiropoulos.

Now, she continued, she watches her son Wilson, 14, and daughter Annie, 8, lay claim to the spaces underneath tall hollies in their back yard.
