LOS ANGELES -- Twins Regina and Renata Salinas Fierros were in side-by-side beds in intensive care yesterday after surgeons separated the babies, who had been attached from the chest to the pelvis for the first 10 months of their lives. "Seeing the girls today respond," said Dr. James E. Stein, the pediatric surgeon leading the operation, "was a great excitement for us all." Stein told reporters that the girls were stable throughout the operation that involved separating them and dividing their internal organs.

Of all the operatic roles you might expect to hear Renata Scotto sing, that of Klytamnestra, the murderous, maniacal queen of Thebes in Richard Strauss' "Elektra," might well be the last. The famed soprano, long associated with the likes of Mimi, Lucia, Violetta, Butterfly and a host of other sympathetic, endearing characters, took the plunge into the mezzo - even contralto - depths of Klytamnestra for the first time Saturday night at the Lyric Opera House. Scotto laughs about the way she is making her Baltimore debut.

Next month, Eustace Tilley, superfop, will appear on the cover of the New Yorker, just as he has done every year since that incomparably distinguished magazine's first issue 75 years ago. The New Yorker came by mail when I was a child. Since then I have, with a few breaks, been a subscriber. I learned to think about writing there -- from Edmund Wilson and Dorothy Parker. I learned most of what I know about the lavishness of irony from Charles Addams, and about the limits of civility from Peter Arno.

"My favorite book is 'Kai: A Mission for Her Village - Africa 1440' by Dawn C. Gill Thomas. This book is about a young girl on a mission with many obstacles. Her mission is to find water. I like this book because I'm a young girl and we all have obstacles to get over and achieve."- Renata AllenDundalk Elementary"My favorite book is 'Treasure Island' by Robert Louis Stevenson III because he's a good author and because I like the pictures. I think you should read this book."- Donald WestonBedford ElementaryPub Date: 12/16/98
