In the hours before he died early Sunday, Midshipman John Paul Ruggiero was in an upbeat, even celebratory, mood. The affable 20-year-old called his father to say how good he felt about having just signed the "2 for 7," the contract committing juniors at the Naval Academy to five years of military service after graduation. Then he wowed a table of classmates by cooking a shrimp scampi dinner, a specialty he perfected as a cook at an Italian restaurant near his hometown in rural northeastern Pennsylvania.

Opera Vivente has a tendency to do its own thing, cutting an eclectic swath through repertoire and often presenting productions that come with fresh twists. So it's not surprising that the company should open its 10th year by reconsidering Handel's Alcina through the drug-filtered light and responsibility-challenged lifestyles of the 1960s. This hippied-up concept of the 1735 work proved mostly effective, as did the performance, Friday night at Opera Vivente's home base, the hall at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Mount Vernon.

The 20-year-old midshipman who fell to his death from his Naval Academy dorm room last month was inebriated at the time of his fall, according to an autopsy report released by military investigators yesterday. John Paul Ruggiero, a junior from rural Gouldsboro, Pa., had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11 percent, above the 0.08 percent legal limit for driving in Maryland and, experts say, enough to slow reaction time, cloud judgment and diminish balance. People familiar with the case disclosed yesterday that Ruggiero had been drinking wine and beer at a dinner party at the house of an Annapolis woman in the school's sponsor-family program.

A Philadelphia judge has dismissed a wrongful-death lawsuit filed against the Navy by the family of a Naval Academy midshipman who was killed in a fall from his dormitory window. John Paul Ruggiero, a junior from Gouldsboro, Pa., tumbled 53 feet to his death in August 2002 after a night of drinking with his friends off campus. Ruggiero's parents sued, contending that the Navy was negligent in its failure to secure the large windows of Bancroft Hall with screens or bars. In dismissing the suit, U.S. District Judge A. Richard Caputo cited the Feres Doctrine, a 1950 Supreme Court ruling that protects the military from being sued by soldiers and their families for active-duty injuries.

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Some days, Angela Ruggiero is a "D." Other days, she's a "C." She's even, on occasion, been an "F." Chances are the defender-center-forward on the U.S. women's hockey team would take tickets, wash uniforms or even run the Zamboni machine between periods to win another Olympic gold medal. "Yeah, there's unfinished business," Ruggiero says. It has been eight years since the U.S. women's team wore the gold and four years since dejected team members could barely stand to look at the silver medals around their necks.
