It's "Prom Night" on Dancing with the Stars , and Jacoby Jones tells Karina Smirnoff he went to his prom "on a last-minute thing. " He was 5'7" and 160 pounds, and went stag. Once at prom, he played some pranks and got kicked out. Oooh, scandal! Jacoby's high school was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina when he was a college student. He's dedicating tonight's dance to his alma mater, Marion Abramson High School.   During rehearsals, the Ravens player keeps saying "rhumba" to rhyme with "Roomba" the self-propelled vacuum cleaner.

The grind of being an NFL nose guard is embraced by Ravens rookie Brandon Williams, a heavyweight defensive lineman accustomed to dirty work and life's hardships. Before emerging as a draft sleeper from Division II Missouri Southern, Williams spent last summer hauling and cleaning portable toilets.

Duany and InnoVida, a manufacturer of fiber composite materials in Florida, have collaborated on a series of durable, inexpensive "Haitian cabins" that can be assembled in a day. Retired U.S. Army Gen. Wesley Clark and former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning have backed InnoVida's plans to build a factory in Haiti to produce thousands of the cabins per year.

Thank you for Jean Marbella 's article on the Freemasons ("Masons open their doors at least a crack," April 2).
