Being deceptive can be costly - particularly if you're a wasp. Researchers at the University of Arizona caught female paper wasps, matched them by size and videotaped them as they fought inside plastic dishes - staring each other down, grappling, running at one another and trying to bite and climb on one another. They noticed that wasps with tiny black spots on their faces tended to be more dominating. But when they painted tiny black spots on some of the less dominant wasps, the impostors were beaten up more often than before.

A Memorable Place Lighthouse hostel: a tempting treat By Peggy Rowe SPECIAL TO THE SUN On Cape Vincent, N.Y., my husband, John, and I came upon the end of a narrow, country road running along the St. Lawrence River and saw a beautiful sight -- the Tibbetts Point lighthouse, overlooking where Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence come together. When we saw a sign that the former lightkeeper's house was actually a hostel, John remarked, "We've never spent the night in a hostel." "It's for young travelers who can't afford a motel," I said.

ALTHOUGH FEW voters understand the duties of the clerk of the Circuit Court or Orphans' Court judge, they must chose the people to fill these positions. They are not highly visible policy-making jobs; as a result, the public doesn't pay much heed to the candidates who have filed for them. However, when residents find themselves at the courthouse having to deal with questions about estates, wills, trusts, lawsuits or other legal records, they become keenly interested in these people elected to serve them.
