J ean-Michel Frederick lives at the Petionville Club, near the golf course's ninth tee, with a grand view of the valley and the harbor. That would have meant prestige a few weeks ago. Today it means sleeping with his family on the side of a hill inside a patchwork tent made of sticks and bed linens, wedged into a human collage of 30,000 fellow Haitians displaced by the earthquake. "Of course, we do not choose to live here, but it is safe from the earthquake and the Americans are here," said Frederick, as he stood in line with his mother and a thousand others, clutching the green Catholic Relief Services ticket that promised his family a two-week supply of food.

Maybe instead of moving all of the current illegals off into far off places we should build a tent city on the mall in Washington so our rulers can see what they have wrought ("America's refugee crisis," July 9). Oh, that's right, they go to and from their fiefdoms via underground or tinted window transport so they never have to see the real world. William M.

Tucked behind trees off a street in Glen Burnie are about a dozen mostly makeshift tents and a small trailer, forming a small community of homeless people who have been there off and on for several years. Now, Anne Arundel County has ordered the homeless to leave the site by April 3 — the second time in about a year there's been a push to clear the site. County agencies and nonprofit organizations — the Department of Social Services and the nonprofit Arundel House of Hope among them — are trying to connect the homeless people there with shelters and other services.

Standing outside his tent pitched on the sidewalk by a defunct downtown diner, Jimmy Stewart III wondered aloud where he'll sleep after city officials force him to leave Friday morning. The city is set to remove Stewart, 54, and a couple dozen other homeless people from their temporary homes on soggy mattresses along the Fallsway at makeshift campsites between parking spaces under the Jones Falls Expressway and inside tents huddled against the closed Hollywood Diner. It will be the fifth time in four years the city has forced him to move, Stewart said.

IF YOU ARE the parent of a young child, at some point this summer, your child may turn to you and ask: "Can we buy a tent?" Here's a little piece of advice: Don't do it. Unless you're really into camping, this is one of those ideas you want to squash right away, before he gets his little hopes up and starts dashing around the neighborhood like a ferret on Dexedrine shouting: "We're getting a tent! We're getting a tent!" See, as soon as you buy the little monster a tent, he'll ask for one of two things.

Tregoning announced yesterday.Complaining that the county jail, which was designed for 144 prisoners, was too crowded when inmate population exceeded 190, Brown vowed in November 1997 to set up a tent in the jail's fenced yard and form a posse of unarmed civilian volunteers to help stand guard.Brown's project ran into trouble when a wooden platform was constructed without proper building permits.

When the air gets so heavy and dirty that it sits on the Baltimore skyline like an old wool Army blanket, I start thinking about camping. I am thinking about it right now. This past week was just a calling card for the humid weeks of summer ahead. Time to plan a trip to the hills of Pennsylvania or Virginia, or the mountains of northern New England. Sure, you can spend on camping gear the equivalent of the gross national product of some small nation. You'll look wicked cool setting up under the trees with stuff from The North Face or Sierra Designs.

He's a legend in Baltimore's underground film community (Microcinefest organizer Skizz Cyzyk cites him as a major influence) whose name has been giving this newspaper fits for years. tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE (given name: Michael Tolson, but his friends call him tENT) has been pushing the boundaries of filmmaking for more than 20 years, and tonight at the Charles Theater audiences will have the rare chance to see some of the results -- at least a half-dozen short films, examples of a decidedly warped perspective that challenges everything you think you know about visual images and how they interact with us. The films include "Diszey Shorts," which posits that not only was Walt Disney cryogenically frozen, but that he continued directing films, thanks to electrodes attached to his brain; "Ward of Mouth," the tale of a bubble-gum party, a glum, sign-carrying iconoclast and peanut butter as a shampoo; and "Subtitles," which pretty much defies description; one of its strengths, says Charles co-owner John Standiford, is that you're never exactly sure what you're watching.

Long before Karoline Hurd became involved with the Great American Backyard Campout, she and her young children would pitch tents and make s'mores behind the family's suburban home. "That's not the norm anymore," said Hurd, the senior manager of special events for the National Wildlife Federation. "Most American kids spend the majority of their time indoors. " As part of the National Wildlife Federation's Great Outdoors Month, the ninth Great American Backyard Campout is scheduled for June 22. The event is also part of an initiative to get 2 million more children outdoors for at least 30 minutes per week over the next two years.

As a post-World War II political activist, candidate, office holder and Republican supporter for the past 67 years, I have always believed in the two-party system of Republicans and Democrats. I believe in a political system consisting of "big tent" Republican and Democratic parties that, among other things, consist of liberals, conservatives and independent voters. However, for the past 40 years, the zealots in each party have rejected the emphasis on united parties in favor of fragmented "leftist" and "rightist" principles.

I absolutely love tented weddings. I think they are a perfect medley of casual and sophisticated. I am really excited to be hosting my own tented wedding but for any couples out there considering this route, I have a few “hindsight” points you should consider. *For most venues, you will be responsible for providing every single piece of furniture, down to the dance floor. What kind of chairs do you want? Where are you renting your tables and linens from? If you are having a band, you may need to rent a stage.

Under heavy rain on a beat-up street in East Baltimore Tuesday, the heads of city government kicked off an intensive, weeklong program designed to address violence, drug trafficking and other stubborn problems that have plagued the Oliver neighborhood. The program will feature increased police patrols and a door-to-door campaign to connect drug addicts with substance abuse treatment and struggling homeowners with much-needed services to keep them in their homes. The gathering just north of Johns Hopkins Hospital launched a blitz of resources in Oliver — which the city has targeted as much for its potential as its problems.

DURHAM, N.C. -- They had been here for a while, some for nearly two months. They had turned the grounds around Cameron Indoor Stadium into a yuppified tent city, an L.L. Bean catalog come to life.Camping out in line for basketball tickets has been in vogue at Duke for several years now. But nothing compares to what had happened this season. And, as a result, the tradition might end with last night's final home game against Maryland."We appreciate their support, but I think we have to do something about them waiting so long," Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said earlier this season.

Three-year-old Anthony Carlson didn't really care that he was recovering from surgery in a tent. He just sat up in his bed, played with his Jell-O and smiled for the television cameras that had gathered around to make him the media star of the day.Anthony was one of nearly 1,000 patients who have been operated on since April at Fort Meade's deployable medical station, sort of a high-tech MASH unit. Anthony's father, Mark, an Army specialist stationed at Fort Detrick in Frederick, had seen one before, but just the same said he was surprised with the facility.

The 41st Annual Greek Food & Cultural Festival starts Friday. This is the one at the Greek Cathedral of the Annunciation in Midtown-Belvedere, when everyone sits on the cathedral's steps in the sunshine and stuffs themselves silly. Under the big tent on Preston Street, there's stuff like gyros, souvlaki and fried calamari. But you have to go inside the cathedral and down into the basement for the baked lamb shank, spanakopita, pastitio, roast chicken and stuffed grape leaves. New this year: a Saturday night party in the tent, with a live band.
