Like the crossword puzzles it celebrates, the documentary Wordplay is a small triumph of infusing personality into formula. Director Patrick Creadon and producer Christine O'Malley mold their film around a handful of puzzle-solvers anticipating the annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in Stamford, Conn. But even if you think you never want to see another fact-based or fictional feature that builds to an election, an academic test or a sports championship, Wordplay holds you with its craftiness, its playfulness and, best of all, the bounteous bonhomie of its puzzle-makers and crossword addicts.

Joe Epstein takes an inventory and checks the items in his medicine cabinet twice a year. He does the same for his grown children when he visits their homes. As a licensed pharmacist and co-owner of a Stamford, Conn., pharmacy, Epstein knows what a lot of people don't: that expiration dates need to be periodically checked and that even such basic drugs as aspirin need to be stored in an ideal environment. Statistics on the American Pharmaceutical Association Web site provided by a 1997 issue of Prevention magazine show that in 1996, 84 percent of Americans used an over-the-counter pain medication and 76 percent used an over-the-counter cold or cough remedy; and that 46 percent (or nearly 83.5 million)

CARTHAGE, Tenn. - Al Gore, who has occupied the vice presidency for nearly eight years and who served in Congress for nearly 16 years, trekked to his home base in the rolling farm country of the Cumberland Valley yesterday to reintroduce himself to America as a man whose roots lie in central Tennessee. "Everything important in my life, it seems, has started in Carthage," Gore told a crowd of more than 200 people packed into the overheated gymnasium of an elementary school, closing with, "Thank you, Carthage, for helping to raise me - for being the village that raised me."

Robert Yara isn't indestructible after all.It's not that he had a bad showing in Sunday's 12th-annual Zoo Zoom Five-Miler; it's difficult to contest a 28-second, first-place finish in a better-than-average field.It's just that Yara, the man who ran fourth in last year's Stamford (Conn.) Marathon and came back the following week to win the Maryland Marathon, sat out a race last week.But Yara had good reason for the decision. Yara is in training for the Stamford Marathon, and two weeks ago, he ran in -- and won -- the American Legion Parkton 10K a day after he had completed a 20-mile training run."

Vigen Guroian, a theologian and ethicist who teaches at Loyola College in Maryland, has read the important tomes by the authorities in his field. He has even written a couple of them.But to his mind, one of the best sources of moral wisdom lies in the classic fairy tales read to us when we were children.Not the sanitized Disney versions, mind you. But classics like the stories by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid," and the story of the wooden puppet who wanted to become a real boy, "Pinocchio."
