Firefighters from Anne Arundel, Howard and Prince George's counties, as well as Fort Meade, responded on Monday to a fire at a Popeye's Restaurant in Maryland City that closed the restaurant and caused an estimated $50,000 in damage. Anne Arundel County fire officials believe the fire started in a mulch bed next to the building, located at 3388 Laurel/Fort Meade Road (Route 198), and may have been the result of someone discarding smoking material. Officials received a 911 call about the fire at about 1 p.m., and arrived to find smoke coming from the building.

He goes by Popeye, but don't let the spinachy goodness of the name fool you. He has been around the block, and then some. Here in Maryland, he has family ties to a lobbyist - a lobbyist for nudists, no less. Across the country, he has picked up friends in high places. A state treasurer here. A couple of state senators there. A governor, even. And that's where Popeye's trail grows cold. Last anybody knew, Popeye was on his way to meet New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson. He hasn't been seen since.

It won't supplant the nuptials of Charles and Diana as the Wedding of the Century (and let's hope it has a happier ending), but another celebrity marriage is on the horizon.Next month, after 70 years of an often-bizarre dating relationship that makes Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra look like Ozzie and Harriet, Popeye the Sailor Man will finally marry Olive Oyl. (Relax: Swee' Pea wasn't born out of wedlock; he was left on Popeye's doorstep.)Does this mean the mush-mouthed, spinach-scarfing sailor will settle down?

To some degree, we all go through life leaning and listing, bowing and bending. The chores we do and the choices we make shape us. We become misaligned, asymmetrical. All kinds of disciplines try to make us whole again, but just living two-handed can help. How many right-handers can even eat lunch with a fork in their left hands? If you kicked a soccer ball with your "other" foot, would the ball do more than dribble along? When's the last time you even tried to use the other side? How many of you curl challenging weights in your strong arm and then just peter out on the other?

Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, take note: There's an avid cookie baker in Crofton who wants your job. So does a lay minister in Jessup and a retired high school teacher in Gaithersburg. Then there's the convicted felon who owns a used-appliance store on U.S. 1 - and maintains his innocence. They are among the 11 challengers entered in the March 2 primary election to unseat three-term Democratic incumbent Mikulski, who has held the post since 1986. She announced her bid for a fourth term last month with more than $2 million in campaign funds.

MILWAUKEE -- The schedule and circumstances may suggest that the Washington Wizards are precariously close to that point in a long regular season at which tee times become more important than game time. But, even on the precipice of the playoff race, the Wizards are moving on as if there is meaningful basketball to be played, which is just the way Michael Jordan, who will miss their final seven games, would want it. "Obviously, we're still working toward the future of this franchise, and we need to instill in everybody, `Hey, don't quit because Michael's missing and it looks like we're not going to make the playoffs,' " forward Popeye Jones said yesterday.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Wizards couldn't get enough Easter baskets to stay with the NBA's most prolific offense yesterday. As a result, a 110-103 loss to the Dallas Mavericks at MCI Center left them with an even bigger obstacle to overcome in the race for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot. The defeat dropped the young Wizards (34-39) to 2 1/2 games behind the Indiana Pacers with nine contests remaining. "I think this was a game in which you gauge yourself on how good you are, not only now, but for the future," Wizards coach Doug Collins said.
