A duel begins, swords clang and, although no blood will be drawn, some say it is still a fight for honor at the Slayton Fencing Club, which meets three nights a week at Slayton House in Columbia. "It's the romance of the sword," said Harper's Choice village resident Jeff Biggs, 40, who returned to fencing five years ago after a 15-year hiatus and helps teach beginning and intermediate classes. "Everyone who tries [fencing] on some level wishes he were Captain Hook or Peter Pan." The sport, a workout for the body and mind, is sometimes referred to as physical chess, said club co-director Kerry Swick, who has been fencing for 36 years and once represented the United States in a World Cup competition.

Columbia's Slayton House has been turned into a strip club. The community center's eyebrow-raising transformation is only temporary, though, because its theater is hosting Silhouette Stages' lively production of "The Full Monty. " Although this Broadway musical is mostly good, clean fun, it's still best to leave the kids at home; for that matter, there are some adults who may not want to expose themselves to "The Full Monty. " As for the rest of us, well, it's easy to get into the slightly naughty spirit of a humorous musical in which unemployed steelworkers in Buffalo strip for a worthy cause, namely, themselves.

Mrs. Slayton-Berkowitz's powder room looks like a million dollars, but she says the total price was under $850.You can adapt many of her ideas if you're planning to update your bathroom. Begin by replacing cheap chrome fixtures, including the sink faucet, with good quality brass. Add a matching switch plate, with a dimmer control.New light fixtures -- Mrs. Slayton-Berkowitz used recessed lighting -- add instant decorating clout but can be expensive. A less expensive option might be to replace the clear globes on existing light fixtures with frosted or etched globes.

The monthly art exhibits at Slayton House are a reliable showcase for local artists. When the administrator in charge of those exhibits, Bernice Kish, recently retired as Wilde Lake village manager, her contributions over the past 25 years prompted an honorary name change. What had been known as the Slayton House Gallery is now the Bernice Kish Gallery at Slayton House . An indication of how this gallery complements the overall program mix at Slayton House was experienced when I went to see Marie McGing 's current photography series, titled "Faces of Aging.

The two-artist exhibit of watercolors at Slayton House Gallery takes advantage of that medium's colorful and casual qualities. These are artistically well-planned compositions, though they seem pretty easygoing in nature. Lynn Ferris has a certain amount of rigor in composing her portraits, for instance, but her subjects don't seem like they've been holding static poses for hours. Even when her approach includes diamond-gridded and other formally precise abstract backgrounds, the human figures in the foreground don't just seem like pieces set against a game board.

It's a little-known fact now, but when the musical "Chicago" made its Broadway debut in 1975, it wasn't much of a hit, running less than a thousand performances. It only became a smash musical and movie when it was revived decades later. That's because it was way ahead of its time, said Conni Ross, who is co-directing a revival of the play for Columbia's Silhouette Stages that opens Friday, May 24. "In the director's notes, one of the things I wrote was, 'This show is as relevant now as it was when it was written,' " said Ross, who is sharing directorial duties with her frequent collaborator Debbie Mobley.
