Five students at Centennial High School are facing various drug and weapons charges - and possible expulsions - after a police officer and a school administrator discovered marijuana, prescription pills, a small knife and a razor blade on them yesterday. The school was in lockdown from 10:45 a.m. until just before 1 p.m. while police questioned suspects and made arrests, said Principal Lynda Mitic. Students remained in their third-period classes during that time, she said. The search began after a teacher sent a 15-year-old girl to the health office yesterday morning because she seemed lethargic, Howard County police spokeswoman Sherry Llewellyn said.

Loss can defeat us or serve as the impetus for positive change. Here, Sue Ellen Thompson of Connecticut shows us how to mourn inevitable changes, tuck the memories away, then go on to see the possibility of a new and promising chapter in one's life. - Ted Kooser "No Children, No Pets" I bring the cat's body home from the vet's in a running-shoe box held shut with elastic bands.

Low Q rating -- Fifteen of 20 teen-age shoppers at Towson Town Center, shown a picture of U.S. downhill gold medalist Tommy Moe, incorrectly identified him as Buzzy on "Baywatch."You can put the razor blade down, too -- can put the razor blade down, too -- Furious third-period rally by Team USA yesterday narrowly averted loss to namby-pamby French hockey team, thus sparing Americans from donning paper-bag-over-the-head disguise traditionally worn after a loss to France in any sport.Badly in need of a confidence-builder, Team USA will now play a tune-up against the fifth-grade CYO team from Sacred Heart School, Troy, N.Y.So it's come to this -- American-made cars used to have rugged names: Fury, Firebird, Cutlass.

If you are looking for a last-minute Father's Day gift, I suggest razor blades -- ones that will fit his old razor. That is not as easy as it sounds. The other day, as I prepared for the daily ritual of shaving, four different razors came out of the bathroom cabinet. Three were made by Gillette: an Atra Plus, a Sensor and a MACH3. The other was a multi-blade operation known as the Schick Quattro, I think. I say I think because the model names of razors often elude me. Like PIN numbers and passwords, the names of razors are, I think, contrived barriers to pleasant living, stuff we really shouldn't have to know to get along in life.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Nick Faldo is a man on the edge.Sometimes it's the edge of greatness. Sometimes it's the edge of a razor blade.Having won four majors in the last five years -- two British Opens and two Masters -- Faldo is as close to great as any golfer in the past 10 years, certainly since Tom Watson burned out prematurely in the mid-'80s.Yet even Faldo would say he's a blade of grass, maybe two, from being truly great. There's the U.S. Open to win and when it starts here at the Pebble Beach Golf Links tomorrow Faldo will be among the favorites for the title.

A razor-blade attack on the dance floor of a Southwest Baltimore after-hours club has left a Coppin State College student severely injured and has rekindled a debate on whether the controversial establishment should be closed.City police say the cutting that occurred early Saturday is the latest in a series of problems at Paradox Nightclub, which is just south of the new Ravens' stadium and this summer survived a police-backed bid by a neighborhood association to revoke its license."The only thing we can do now is kind of hope that we don't have something that leads to someone's death," said Maj. Elmer Dennis, commander of the Southern District police station.

LONDON -- London's newest bridge is not exactly falling down, but it is more than a little wobbly on its pegs, a quivering monument to modern engineering that often is too clever by half. And if you ever get a chance to saunter across its span, best eat a light lunch and take along a barf bag. This, mind you, isn't the London Bridge, the one that Jack the Ripper probably used to get to and from work. That one the wily burghers of Britain's capital sold to an American oilman, who promptly rebuilt it in the middle of the Arizona desert.

Boston. -- Much of the nation is incensed over that suburban Chicago couple that vacationed in Mexico while allegedly leaving their 9- and 4-year-old girls alone at home. The singular act was unthinkable. It also made me feel how, in only one generation, we have lost so much feeling for neighborhood that we rob our children of freedom.I discuss this often with my friends. Were our parents naive, or is the world now really so much more dangerous that we allow our children far less independence than we had?

ATTENTION, consumers with bodily hair: The razor industry has news for you! You will never in a million years guess what this news is, unless your IQ is higher than zero, in which case you're already thinking: "Not another blade! Don't tell me they're adding ANOTHER BLADE!!"

Before I tell you the news, let's put it in historical context by reviewing: The History of Shaving Human beings are one of only two species of animals that shave themselves (the other one is salamanders)

She --ed out the front. It turned out to be the wrong move.She met Police Commissioner Thomas C. Frazier. "Put your hands up against the wall," the city's top officer ordered, while taking away a plastic shopping bag.During rides last week with his officers, Mr. Frazier never hesitated to get involved, whether it meant searching a teen-ager and pulling a razor from his pants pocket or climbing over mounds of debris to get inside an abandoned rowhouse.

"I assume an inmate gave it to him," Richard Baker said. "I don't think we gave him anything."Anderson was treated and released from Anne Arundel Medical Center.
