ANYONE WHO claims the preppy look has long since peaked need only open the April issue of Seventeen magazine, where Baltimore's own Gilman School -- make that The Gilman School -- commands a four-page spread.There, in ubiquitous oxford shirt, tie and tousled hair, are the boys of Gilman, smiling out from the pages in all their traditional splendor. They're photographed seated at a roundtable having a heady discussion, gathered on the athletic field for a game of -- what else? -- lacrosse, and packed four to a seat into a '60s Mustang convertible, just being guys.

For years, Baltimore police leaders credited steep reductions in shootings to aggressive policing first in three and eventually four large geographic zones with a history of violence. One zone in East Baltimore stretched more than three miles long. Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts on Tuesday announced a plan to refocus those efforts, increasing the number of enforcement zones to 17 while reducing their size. The change, planned with a team of academic researchers, is intended to allow officers to focus more directly on trouble spots.

She threw it into an envelope with a school mug shot and a picture from camp and sent it to Seventeen magazine and Chanel's "New Model of the Year Contest."Soon after, with more pressing things on her mind, like a 4.053 GPA to maintain, junior varsity lacrosse and volleyball teams to lead to victory, Sunday dinners with family and violin performances with the school orchestra, Hannah did what any other 15-year-old model-wannabe would do: She forgot all about it.Until one May afternoon.

Lewis Museum in Baltimore where he announced a partnership between the United Athletes Foundation and accounting firm Baker Tilly.

Micha Weinblatt has an enviably short commute to work every day. Each morning about 9:30, he leaves the top floor of his parents' house in Potomac and heads to his job as founder of Crooked Monkey, a T-shirt company operated out of their low-ceilinged basement. It's a sweet gig, he admits, especially since Symcha Weinblatt doesn't require her 24-year-old son to pay for room and board or the basement office space. But Crooked Monkey is doing so well, Micha Weinblatt says, all that may soon change.

LANDOVER - The way the Washington Redskins played yesterday against the Minnesota Vikings, one would've thought the Redskins were in the hunt for an NFC playoff spot. With nothing left but pride on the line, Washington put a scare into Minnesota's hopes for a wild-card berth by outlasting the visitors, 21-18, before 76,876 at FedEx Field. The Vikings (8-8), who were denied a playoff berth last season when the Arizona Cardinals beat them on a last-second touchdown pass in the regular-season finale, yesterday qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2000 courtesy of the New Orleans Saints' 21-18 victory over the Carolina Panthers.

"One Girl's Battle With Booze." "Save The Earth, Girl." "Black Kids Who Are Fed Up." "Menstrual Customs: A World Tour." "Guns Put Fear In Teens' Hearts."These are not the teen magazine articles your mother used to read. Even compared to just 10 years ago, periodicals for teen-age girls have grown up."Girls still want to know about makeup, but they also want to know about sex, and they probably aren't going to go to their mothers," says Debbie Then, a social psychologist with the University of California, Los Angeles' Center for the Study of Women.

The biggest name in the NFL's first free-agent class landed in the league's smallest market, and just like that, Reggie White re-made the Green Bay Packers' deteriorating image in 1993. Three years later, White not only helped the Packers reach the Super Bowl, but they won it, as well. "Had it not been for Reggie, we don't make it to the Super Bowl," Packers quarterback Brett Favre said last week. "That's how important he was to the team. "When he signed as a free agent, he changed the way people in and out of football looked at Green Bay as an NFL city.
