Every year, I look to summer as a time for vacations, baseball and Fourth of July celebrations. But in recent years, my expectations have been diminished, because frankly, I dread June - the month the Southern Baptist Convention meets to conduct its annual business session. After the convention, I find myself trying desperately to explain to friends and acquaintances alike that I while I'm a Southern Baptist, I'm not one of those Southern Baptists, the ones who've taken over.For example, I have found myself in the awkward position of trying to explain why the convention denounced Disney last year, calling for a boycott to protest some Disney programs and company polices, including health benefits for same-sex partners of company employees.

While driving around Howard County, you have probably seen a blue sign stuck in the ground beside the road and wondered, "What was on that sign I just passed?" And if you have gone back to read it, you might have asked "What did the information mean?" The blue sign contains information announcing a pre-submission community meeting. The Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning (DPZ) requires developers to hold these meetings close to the proposed development site at a convenient location and time to inform neighborhood residents of proposed residential, commercial or governmental development.

King civil rights trial yesterday, dramatically disagreeing about how much force police officers were entitled to use in arresting Mr. King.Sgt. Charles L. Duke testified for the police officers accused of violating Mr. King's rights, and he vigorously defended their actions.He told jurors, for instance, that Mr. King continued to pose a threat even after he had been knocked to the pavement with a series of baton blows because his movements continued to suggest that he was defying police orders to stay down.

I MUST INFORM your readers that The Sun's Dec. 15 editorial, "$20 million question . . . Wyndham Hotel: City Hall offered subsidies Paterakis developers did not even ask for," is incorrect and misleading.Having reviewed the record to test my recollection that, as I was quoted, the parking revenue bonds had "been there from the beginning," here are the facts:From the developers' submission dated Dec. 12, 1996, responding to the Baltimore Development Corp.'s request for proposals: "We propose that the city issue $25 million in tax exempt parking revenue bonds to support the proposed development."

Anne Arundel Community College student Liam Cunningham's muse spoke to him as he thought about a classmate who frequently brought bottles of soda to class. From that he concocted the three-minute video called "Beethoven's Fizz," which features soda repeatedly rising and falling inside a 2-liter bottle to the tune of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. The video is among many entries in AACC's second annual Student Video Festival, which features submissions of original, copyright-free material that are six minutes or shorter.

For Regina King, the mightiest test in the ensemble comedy-drama This Christmas was allowing herself not to be mighty. "The majority of roles I play have the common thread of being a strong person. It was a welcome challenge to play submissive and do it convincingly," she said. It's easy to see why King is typecast. She projects a sense of confidence and physical power, even over a relaxed lunch. That, coupled with a natural screen presence, helped her graduate from the world of TV sitcoms to film, where she delivered a stirring performance in the Ray Charles biopic, Ray. But King's turn as Charles' back-up singer/lover is miles away from her work in This Christmas, which tells the story of a family reconnecting over the holidays and features a cast that includes Delroy Lindo, Loretta Devine and R&B sensation Chris Brown.

"As Francesca" by Martha Baer. New York: Broadway Books. 288 pages. $22.50."As Francesca" is superficially about cybersex. But the medium is incidental to the story's point: power.That's not to say that this breathless first novel by Martha Baer, the executive editor of HotWired, always convinces with its depictions of the trade-offs between submission and dominance. But within its claustrophobic, desperate world, it's entirely engrossing.Baer's protagonist is Elaine, a number cruncher in a corporation of vague purpose, whose only real connection with people seems to be through the computer.
